Blue Orchids Beach Hotel
- What's Included
We stayed at Blue Orchid for two weeks over the Easter holidays, having previously stayed in the sister hotel, Coral Mist 11 years ago. We had a 1 bedroom apartment for us and our 10 year old daughter. The apartment was spacious and benefitted from a large corner balcony overlooking the bay. The beach location has to be the best spot on the south coast! Worthing is quieter than St. Lawrence Gap (1 mile away) and also a short stroll to Rockley. The apartments are fairly basic but very well equipped, cleaned to a good standard and have a good kitchen area. We found this useful for making breakfast and lunch but we ate out in the evenings. The grounds and pool are spotless and well maintained and the beach is stunning! There's loads of great bars and restaurants within a short stroll - Berts Sports Bar, The Tiki Bar and Mojos are all well worth a visit for great value food. In Rockley (5-10 mins walk) there's a small shopping mall with a small supermarket, food outlets and other shops. The Italian Coffee stall, ice cream shop and smoothie bar are lol amazing! Highly recommend Blue Orchid or Coral Mist as a good value base for exploring Barbados. Reggie - the entertainment manager is great at booking excursions and offering advice on places to visit. We did the Slammin' catamaran cruise and Island Safari. Both excellent days out! Bridgetown is a 15 minute bus ride away and there's a bus stop right by the hotel. 2 Bajan dollars each way makes it great value too. Rooms are right on the beach, so expect to be sent to sleep listening to the waves!
I am staying at the Blue Orchids Beach Hotel at the moment it's a 3star hotel but it's a nice clean hotel.It's right on the beach and it has a pool, restaurant and a bar which needs updating but it's functional they do room service which I used quite a lot.There is 4 blocks but only 2 lifts in 2 blocks so be prepared to carry your luggage up 2-3 flights of stairs in the other blocks.It's right on the main road, shops, bars and 1 or 2 restaurants are 5-10 minutes away.If you want to explore the island then hire a car or a local taxi for the day, You can catch a government bus or ZR buses to Bridgetown for $2 Barbados dollars which is very cheap.If you have a kitchen then I recommend you use it because the restaurants are expensive in Barbados so just go to your local supermarket which if you turn right on the road it's 5 minutes on the left hand side, the sea at Blue Orchids is very choppy but if you turn left you will find Rockley beach which is lovely and calm.If you turn right out of the hotel for 5-8 minutes then you will find Worthing beach which is okay.I love Barbados it's very safe and there's lots to do.On a final note don't buy your currency in the U.K. you will get a terrible rate, you can change some pounds at the airport after you collect your luggage you will get a good rate then change some more in the local banks.They need your pounds more than British banks, well have a great time in Barbados you will love it.
Just returned from Barbados and ended our 10 day trip with 4 nights at the Blue Orchid. The location is awesome with a great beach. The hotel is small, which makes it even more relaxing. Within a 20 min walking radius you can rent a surf board, go to great restaurants, visit a local market on Wednesday and Saturday, walk the board walk, two grocery stores, take a bus, and even walk to the Gap. We saw the entire island with friends who live in Barbados our first 6 days and we very happy we chose this hotel. Yes it needs a little TLC, but you are not in Barbados to sit in your room.
Just got back from another wonderful trip to Barbados. Been going for past 20 years.First time at Blue Orchid. Basic hotel with excellent location and beach. You can hear the waves. Staff was great. Can't wait to go next year again at Blue Orchid
