We had a spacious suite for a reasonable price in a location where it was easy to access Bridgetown via buses, Oistins (and the wonderful Friday Night Fish Fry) was a short walk and a beautiful beach across the road. The restaurant attached to the hotel had great local dishes, very tasty grilled fish with a quick room service, a...

A local friend decided to take my colleague (who was on her first visit to Barbados) and me (someone who has been here at least 25 times in the past 25+ years) to the Saturday Lime at Ixora for some fresh fish. It was crowded--as expected. But the service was horrible. First they seated our party of three behind the...

I didn't stay at the hotel itself; I was attending a wedding reception. The staff were on their toes at all times and very pleasant. Bartenders knew exactly what they were doing preparing drinks, and even tailored some to the guests' needs. I was so pleased that I'll definitely consider staying at the hotel the next time I visit Barbados!

When we arrived at Golden Sands late evening there was no record of our booking. Not a problem. We were given a room and told to sort it out in the morning. Where else would do that? The room was large, clean and tidy with a huge bed. It's not 5 star, but you're not paying 5 star prices! Staff...

This was a good hotel to stay at. It's closer to the airport but a bit further from Bridgetown. Transport is easy to get as it's on the main road. The beach across the road is lovely and not as packed as the other beaches. The hotel room we got was good. It was big with two kings beds. There...

Just an average hotel. Food in restaurant also average. Staff need more training. The beach across the road is great but crossing the road is quite difficult and dangerous. Good transport links to Oistins and Bridgetown. All in all, a good place to stay if you are happy with just average.
