The hotel is need of updating. The food was shocking !! and the staff serving it were not friendly at all Everywhere seemed grubby or dirty, especially around the bar near the pool. Would not recommend , there are plenty of nicer places for less money on the West coast

This was the 'best relaxation holiday' we have ever had, 2 weeks of bliss. We arrived rather burned out and left refreshed, relaxed and renewed ready to face work challenges once again. The staff are so friendly and will do whatever it takes to make your visit wonderful. The new General Manager Kathy Gaskin went way above and beyond the...

Dont panick if you are planning a trip to discovery bay and have read the previous 1* review. We returned today from a wonderful family holiday between 13th- 20th at discovery bay. I have to say we certainly encountered none of the issues mentioned by the previous reviewer? Our rooms were also on the top floor sea view, there were...

We had stayed here on three previous occasions, 2012, 2013 and 2014, and have previously left balanced and complimentary reviews - so, even thinking we knew what to expect, we were looking forward to being able to return again for an extended stay in mid January 2017. However, far from being maintained at or improved from the position as at...

My wife and I spent a very relaxing 10 days all inclusive stay here in January this year 2017. Arriving quite late in the evening, we were welcomed and shown to our room with a lovely view of the garden by a very pleasant receptionist. The hotel is lovely, once the finest on the island, however now in need of...

The hotel is tired but the staff are great. This is our second visit but I do not think we will be back as my wife had items of make up and clothing taken by staff when cleaning. We ended with being interviewed by the Police. We found out that two other guests that were staying 3 doors from us...

This is a 3 star 'shabby chic' all inclusive establishment with a superb beach location. Please do not expect 5 star, it isn't. Although the rooms are a bit worn, they are cleaned daily and are perfectly acceptable. Our room had a safe but it was bolted to a wardrobe shelf and not to the wall making it simple to...

DISCOVERY BAY BARBADOS This hotel is set within its own little tropical paradise on the west coast. You sit on your balcony and for a while you almost forget where you are, until you look round and see your room. The only way to describe the hotel is shabby and in need of serious renovation. On the plus side our...
