- What's Included
We eat here probably about 75% of our vacation...happy hour calls our name! We have been coming since 2012 and seeing the staff at the Reef is always something we look forward to. Excellent food and fantastic service. Thank you so much for making our daughters birthday so special. Lynette and Jennifer...my spoon rest has pride of place in my kitchen:)
We visited the Butterfly for my husband's 75th birthday. I must admit, that having been to Barbados a couple of times before many years ago, when we stayed on the West Coast, I was really not looking forward to going to a "budget" hotel. How wrong I was!The Butterfly beach is very conveniently situated, right on the beach and not too far from the airport. There is a Chinese restaurant (which we visited) right opposite, as well as a small shop for basic provisions. We also had a couple of meals at Breezes restaurant, a little further along the road but easy walking distance. The first experience - Sunday roast- was a much better experience than the second when a staff shortage and lots of diners made the waiting too long. The food, however, was great even if we didn't wait for desserts the second time! I should say here that we ate in the hotel for dinner on our other evenings- apart from a sampling of the Oistins fish fry on a couple of occasions. We catered for ourselves mostly for breakfast and lunch. There is a hob, toaster and fridge in the room. (No microwave though). Hotel food is good and service excellent. The staff went out of their way to ensure my husband's birthday was enjoyable. There is entertainment in the hotel three evenings a week, which we enjoyed. It finishes quite early, but due to the time change ,that suited us.Transport is easy. There are buses or the hilarious Z vans which stop right outside the hotel at a cost of 2BD wherever you go! These vans are well known for their fast speeds, loud music, sudden stops and packing in as many people as possible! The nearest ATM is in Oistins, so a good idea to ensure sufficient cash.The hotel is a little dated but rooms are serviced daily and very clean. The pool is lovely. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer at BD7 each. We did not visit the takeaway rotisserie next door but we're told it was good.Overall a very positive experience, and we would definitely go again
Great location, you can walk to Massey supermarket, surfers cafe and Oistins. Beach area on both sides of the hotel, great pool area with lots of sun beds. Restaurant definitely worth a visit, food excellent, had dinner there both nights we stayed. Breakfast was good, but a tad overpriced I thought. Desk clerk could have been friendlier and more sincere. All in all it was a very positive experience and the minor maintenance issues we had were resolved. I would stay here again but the highlight for us was the great dinner and Thursday night barbecue and the friendly staff in the restaurant.
Great hotel, staff are great, not to big and very friendly atmosphere. Room was great massive bed nice and clean, rooms cleaned everyday balcony great also kitchenette was great. Pool is a good size enough decks with chairs, jacuzzi was great. Ate from zRoti shop next door which was great value. Great transport links would stay again.
Definitely one of the best hotels I have ever been. Our room 229 was perfect, spacious and very clean. The hotel had all the amenities needed...pool and three Jacuzzis, laundry and drying machine, hair dryer in the room and wifi. The location of the hotel is very good as well...many beautiful beaches around to go to and many buses to take you anywhere you like with just 2 BDS. The staff was very friendly and helpful with everything we needed. They also booked us a private taxi to visit the beautiful west coast where we stopped in 4 fabulous beaches and didn't charge us the waiting time to swim, where we spent more than half an hour on every beach - very friendly guy, ask for Ricky - we paid just 160 BDS and it was really worth it - and we spent almost 5 hours.Would definitely visit again and recommend it to everyone.
