- What's Included
The website doesnt give the hotel justice.A quiet calm hotel across from the beach.Plenty of local amenities for food etc.We stayed in A refurbished room & then a deluxe suite. Breakfast is the only negative - basic and slow & we expected more selection.Cooked breakfast is pricey & local picasso cafe is cheaper , however every other hotel would charge 30$ bbd for breakfast...Lovely aircon hotel reception & fresh water & orange juice all day when you come in from the beach or hot sun. On the bus routes too & rockley accra beach has showers & beach chairs to rent
There are two main areas to stay on the Island. The West Coast and the South Coast. The West Coast tends to be very expensive with many higher end options. The South Coast is my personal preference as it is more moderately priced and seems to have much more activity. The Blue Horizon is in the perfect location with great access to Rockley Beach and equal distance Bridgetown or Oistins. I was very happy with accommodations. Excellent view and great and welcoming service. I would suggest this is a very good moderate price option for traveling on a budget and will be definitely staying here on my next trip.
our second stay here ..but standards have dropped a lot......we got a high floor as requested over pool area..lovely..comfy bed and ..NO hot water..shower...luke warm at best.breakfast was a poor affair again and not cheap .coffee is awful...nice friendly young waitress though from last year..no more complimentary orange juice in reception.and cake.....think standards are dropping..shame cause this COULD be a brilliant hotel ..right opp A ccra beach and very central...do hope it ups its standards a bit ...
After our last time at Blue Horizon, we decided to try it again and once again, we were satisfied! Dane, the Operations Manager, along with Anne at front desk, were very accommodating and understanding when we had some issues with the room location . Ryan and some of the other staff members again, were more than helpful and welcoming to us and we cannot recommend this hotel enough to others. The hotel's location was ideal for us since we did not have a car. The bus stops to and from town right outside the hotel. 10-15 mins from Oistins and Bridgetown either way. Beach right across and various shops and restaurants, what more can you ask for ? I would recommend this hotel for a more mature individual and families as it is in a safe, well lit location.
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.
