The resort is beautiful beachfront property about twenty minutes from airport. The junior suite room 5426 was a good size and had an excellent view of ocean and the interior courtyard. I really enjoyed the shower (extra hot water and good pressure). The staff was helpful and friendly- Roxanne at Calabash, Sue & Jemini at the front desk, and the security guard, Edward. I felt very nickel and dimed at this hotel. Nothing was included. Most 4 stars hotels at least have complimentary bottled water and a coffee pot in the room or coffee in the lobby for guests. I was also not impressed with the food (the spaghetti and the chocolate brownie became my staple meals). The watery drinks at the bar were overpriced.

Bougainvillea Barbados was the most amazingly Beautiful resort.The Beaches we’re clean and you never felt crowded. There were plenty of chairs and personnel space for you to sit back with a drink and relax.The Beachfront Restaurants were amazing especially Siam Restaurant. The staff was friendly and our rooms were cleaned spotless everyday.There was always plenty to do in Barbados. St Lawrence Gap was a 5 minute drive and there were Great Restaurants and Bars with live music.The fish fry on Fridays was awesome!!!! Live music great service and an abundance of different fish. We had the Lobster Tails and they were the largest we’ve ever seen!! So Delicious!!!! We will Definitely be returning to Bourgainvilla Barbados again. Can’t wait to go back!!!

My 2 daughters and I spent 5 nights here July was our 1st trip to Barbados, and we loved it. The property is extremely clean and beautiful bougainvillea flowers are plentiful on the property which makes it so picturesque. 3 swimming pools to choose from which was a plus, and though the property was sold out the pools were never crowded. We took a short cab ride from the hotel to Brownes Beach which was our favorite of all the beaches we visited, very calm and great for swimming. Many thanks to the Front Desk namely Sue, Rachauna & Jemini for being so accommodating to all our needs during our stay..Special thanks to Shawna who checked us in and gave us a lovely upgrade to a 1 bedroom Suite which was lovely .... very spacious room with a large balcony, and beds are very comfortable. We had 2 of the best taxi drivers during our stay .... We did an Island Tour with Trevor which was wonderful, he’s extremely knowledgeable of the island and we were kept engaged for a good 3 1/2 hours, he’s just great! We did our trips with Junior who is also a wonderful guy....both drivers left me and my girls with lasting memories of Barbados. We had dinner at Castaways and Champers Restaurant, both were excellent..... we would certainly recommend this hotel and surely return in the future. Sharon Gordon

Amazing hotel! The staff is so friendly and honest. They have huge pools with beautiful set up of tables, chairs and couches to lounge on. The bartenders are so nice also. Nicholas and Kevan are wonderful. They really try to make you feel at home. The restaurants at the hotel have delicious food. I recommend Siam for a nice romantic thai dinner. The beach was clean and with enough umbrellas and lounge chairs. They have so much to offer for the beach and pool. Kayaking, floats, snorkeling gear and more! Loved the showers in the room! Everything was clean. They have everything you can possibly think of.

Excellent facility. The beach is however not for swimming but still a beautiful sight. South coast is rougher water. The pool is wonderful and the pool bar is inviting and laid back. The entire hotel is relaxed and great for a vacation getaway.

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. 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.

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!
