- What's Included
I wrote a review on the Blue Horizon on 28/04/15 under screen page "bobandjudy_10"which has changed to robert j because of a server change.We revisited the Blue Horizon again this year in Mar/16 for 2 weeks and our question was "will it be as good as last year"?. The answer was "yes". Sometimes on your first visit to a location you get caught up in the "new" of the location and miss things but our last visit was just as enjoyable as the first year. Staff are excellent. In two years there we haven't met an employee who wasn't helpful and willing to accommodate a request to make your visit more enjoyable. Rooms are spotless and linens/towels are changed daily.Front desk service is excellent also. They can supply you with all the information necessary from things to do, places to eat with the best value and places to eat when you want to splurge, things to see and how to get there.Manager Dane Taylor is excellent and a great guy. Always on the grounds making sure things are right and always ready to answer any of your questions. Also, don't be afraid to use the busses, especially the vans....you meet the nicest people on the vans. Warning...If you rent a car, always rent from a company that will provide you with full insurance coverage. By full coverage I mean tires, wheels, etc. I got caught up in a situation where I didn't have full coverage, had a flat tire and had a large extra bill at the end of our rental. That won't happen again.Also, your vehicle full coverage insurance in Canada "does not" cover you in Barbados. I was told by my insurance company that it is covered only in the USA.Also, the guy on the beach that rents the chairs for 10.00 us will accept 5.00 if you rent from him during your stay ( at least a week).To answer the final question.......are we going back to the Blue Horizon? Yes, in the spring of 2017. Bob and Judy, CanadaPS..We go to Barbados every year. The sun and people are the best.
Great location, right across the beach, close by places to eat, coffee to grab between meetings, and the taxi station is one minute walk and those guys are the friendliest drivers i ve ever met, great choice for sure
I stayed there for the crop over season and I was over charged for my room of 100US and was told it would have been refunded to my card, having called my bank to be told there were no refund from this hotel to my card. Also made several calls to the hotel with no avail. I am so disappointed.
Friendly staff, clean rooms and great location. Most of the staff were very accommodating except for one incident with restaurant staff and a guest in the afternoon shift (lots of screaming and shouting at the guest) this should be investigated and looked at. Close to food and shops as well as transportation. Sometimes the taxis overcharged for short distances so do your research well. The hotel is literally just across the road from Accra beach. Only complaint is that the continental breakfast was very uninspiring and maybe if more effort was put into it more people will partake of the in house restaurant. Also the in room safes need a serious upgrade.All in all my husband and I would return.
Good hotel and right across the road from a lovely beach. Room very spacious, and well serviced. Reception staff always helpful. But, dining room not good. Shared breakfast with the birds eating the cereal from the containers we get the cereal from. Didn't see the pastries; were only cake or muffins. Tried dinner once, but the price is high compared to the quality and what's available close by. Recommend eating at Blakey's, Tiki Bar, Champers, Pacifika... All really close and easy to walk to.Would stay here again, but not eat here...
