- What's Included
My friend and I stayed at the Blue Horizon Hotel which is a little gem of a smaller hotel right across the street from the gorgeous beach and turquoise colored ocean. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a smaller, quieter place to stay. The grounds are beautiful and the pool area is pristine. It's also very close to some excellent dining experiences, all within walking distance. The staff is courteous, friendly and went out of their way to help us with tours and suggestions of things to do in the area. They were all great.
Only a Continental breakfast, but the staff are all Christians, full of smiles and charming. The pool was clean, the gardens well maintained, our room was well equipped with a kitchen, iron and ironing board. A local daily newspaper was provided. and the sea was just across the road with a foot shower to wash off sand outside.. Actually the waves were a bit rough there but there is an alternative calm beach a mile towards Bridgetown.We would happily come back.
We stayed at this place in room 205. I am a regular tripadvisor reviewer and try to find something positive to write. The only bright spot in this stay is that it was only for one night. There checkin was prolonged. I had a mobile and paper confirmation from the site on which I reserved the room on. The price was confirmed @ $160 but the receptionist wanted to charge me $180. When I objected and showed her the price on the confirmation, she want to the back office and came back and said she would honor the confirmed price. The room was on the second floor which had an external corridor. The room was the last one. All the others had electronic key card entry but ours had a flimsy keyed door knob. The CDC lists this area as a Zika infested zone so we kept the place closed up. The biggest problem was THE AIR CONDITIONER DID NOT WORK. We were given a fan which moved the hot air around. The slider had no screen so could not be opened. There was no gasket around the door so daylight showed around it. Ana army of mosquitoes could march in. We sprayed ourselves with insect repellant and fortunately were not bitten. There was no safe as advertised. There was a coffee pot but no coffee, tea, lightener or sweetner. The best part of the stay was when we we checked out. If you have no other choice, my advice is to see the room before you check in.
This hotel is a total dump. The cost is $180 US per night for a budget room with awful sheets, rough towels, and staff that would be better suited to working at a penitentiary. The only reason why we stayed here is because it was a last minute trip and there were no rooms available at any of the other hotels in the area. This is for a reason. 1. Rooms are cleaned (if you're lucky) at 4-5 pm2. If there are any problems, desk staff yell at you and treat you like garbage. 3. The same staff will talk about you in front of your face and make rude hand gestures when you are trying to sort out your problems with the "manager"4. Dogs will bark all night, keeping you up with the traffic and the blindingly bright klieg lights in the parking lot. 5. The breakfast is disgusting and inedible. Pigeons will be defecating on the covers for food and nothing will be fresh 6. No one will listen to your concerns. I'm from Vancouver, one of the most expensive cities in the world, and I basically feel robbed having stayed here. My friends visited me and had to stay at the Patricia Hotel near the notorious Main and Hastings open air drug market because it was all they could afford. The room was 1/3 of the price, cleaner, and with better staff.Consider yourself warned. I would use more accurate language to describe this place but I won't so this gets posted!
We stayed a few nights here and this hotels pricing is very fair. It's good value for money. We luckily and kindly got an upgrade so that was nice. We also went to the Managers Party ( Dane ) which was very good indeed with great music and food. All the staff were friendly and helpful and we will definitely be going again.
