Missing Air conditioning!

Pros: The staff was nice & friendly.
Cons: Air Conditioning & windows!
One of the amenities that they list is air conditioning. It was a glorified fan. Every room has an open window.. no glass on it. Just bars & a wooden shutter closure. ..so even if your AC is working it all goes out the window! So the room never gets cool! I woke up in a pool of sweat every morning!!! It's basically an open air bedroom.. so you hear everything ALL NIGHT! Waves crashing, Birds chirping, parties going on outside.

Jul 4, 2017 by Toni S. Property Representative

Hello Mel. Thanks for leaving your review. We are sad to learn your experience at our beach resort was not as enjoyable as it has been for other guests. We have taken note of your concerns and hope you will consider visiting us again in the future.

Gorgeous setting, great location, wonderful people

Pros: Stunning grounds, location, staff.
Cons: More food choices. Better noise cancelling in rooms.
Location: South west side, right on Maxwell beach. Short ride from airport & close to St Lawrence Gap for restaurants / night life.
Pros: Stunning hotel grounds right on the beach. Waves and pool waterfalls can be heard from the balcony in the section we were in. Staff are helpful & friendly. Security staff on site & front desk open 24 hours. Cocktails / food were very good. Rooms were very clean. 5 - 10 min ride to St Lawrence Gap for good restaurants. Taxis readily available. Short ride from airport. Cons: Menu was very limited (except breakfast) - this can be an issue especially traveling w/ children, also pretty much needed a reservation all the time since it's on the small side. The beach does have small to medium waves (may be issue for small children). Rooms overlooking pool have the best view, but, there is usually music at night which can be heard even w/ the doors closed! An issue if you've had a long day sightseeing / in the sun and want to sleep, or have smaller children.

Bait and switch

I booked and paid for this hotel months before my reservation. When I arrived, they indicated that there was a "problem" with my reservation and they needed to transfer me to another hotel that was 30 minutes away. I was trying to check in at noon so , I know they had rooms available. I did not like the hotel where they transferred us. when we arrived at the new hotel they gave us a room that was not ocean front as I had booked. After much heated discussion I was moved to another room that smelled. Instead of a relaxing day, I spent 3 hours getting the run around. Since the hotel was further to the airport, we had to get up 30 minutes earlier to make our flight. After almost 2 hours on the phone, Travelocity offered me a $50 coupon for a future reservation - not even close to what they should do.

I can't wait to go back!

Location: It was only 10 min away from the airport which made it easy to get back and forth for flights. Specialty restaurants within walking & short cab ride.
This hotel is simply amazing! Thank you Roxanne, Joseanne (Bartenders) and Sophie and Anna (waitresses) for providing such awesome customer service! This place is something out of a postcard. The food was great and all of the staff as a whole goes out of their way to make your stay a great one. I wish I had remembered the name of the front desk person who checked us in because she was simply amazing as well as she upgraded us to a Junior Suite once she knew it was our anniversary. The pool was amazing and the ocean view is to die for! I can't wait to return!

Comfortable Hotel

Pros: The pool, bars and the layout of the grounds.
Cons: More variety in the food menu.
Location: Location is ideal, everything is within easy access if you have a vehicle.
The facility was better than expected, good food, wonderful night life and friendly staff. The beach was a bit disappointing since there was a lot of seaweeds and the water was a brownish black colour. We had to travel about 15min to nearby beach to enjoy sea bathing.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, pricey
Hotel was really relaxing. Staff was superb which made you feel welcomed. It was a great stay but while in Barbados please visit Miami beach which is close to oistins. It is a paradise, well at least for me. Recommend this hotel & can't wait to be back. Thanks again Melissa. One con however was spotty or lack of wi-fi in our room, 5322, guess its because we were high up. We felt like royalty looking down, lol. Things in Barbados are really pricey not just the hotel so make use of ur luggage & kitchen.

Beautiful Hotel

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, transportation
I stay at this Hotel back in June along with my husband. I forgot to write my review earlier. We both fell in love with the hotel, it is kids friendly along with a kitchenette. The staff was excellent. If you had a problem it was resolved within seconds. We will be back with the kids in the summer of 2013. Most of all the transporation to Bridgetown is right there at a minimum charge which was a plus. I recommend this Hotel highly. Best- Smart Family

Beautiful resort great beach

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: rough surf
My overall experience was excellent the property was quite beautiful my room had a great view the beach was very nice and the sand was some of the best I’ve found in the Caribbean although the surf was quite rough most of the time. The staff was friendly and overall did an excellent job. The resort is only a short drive to the night life district The Gap.

Cozy Resort, Beautiful Beach

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
This property is small and cozy, so if you're seeking to stay away from large, overcrowded resorts, this is a place to consider. The beach is absolutely beautiful! And there are plenty of chairs and umbrellas, even if you arrive late to the beach. The restaurants offered good food, but the prices were a bit high and the service was slow way beyond the normal caribbean realxed pace. The rooms are big, clean, airy, and very charming.
