- What's Included
I have stayed twice at Butterfly Beach and twice I have had a wonderful experience. Clean and tidy with that friendly atmosphere, it is so good I am going back next March. The rooms are really nice and so comfortable and spacious it allows you to spread out and enjoy. You must speak with Jason who looks after the gardens and plants he will take time to explain what he is doing and will remember you for that. He is a wonderful team member who deserves real credit for his customer care!! I highly recommend Butterfly Beach to all who travel to Barbados!
For the price, I couldn't have asked for better. I am not one for tourist populated areas so I was pleased that this was situated away from la stream of local bars and clubs. So I would say it is appropriate for families with young children who want a peaceful vacation. The hotel is situated away from all of the hustle and bustle. 15 minutes walk from Oistins- Fish Fry so close enough for a nice stroll there but would recommend a taxi back as the road is really dark in the evening. The bus stop is nearby which runs from Oistins to Bridgetown or Speightown. So convenient, so try to forget about taxis and take in some local culture on the private or govt bus for $2B. Also nearby is a local bank and supermarket. This hotel is all about the staff...whilst the accommodation is satisfactory especially for the price. The staff on the reception, bar and dining always give 100%The hotel is beachfronted, unfortunately the access to the actual beach is limited. There is a gate at the rear of the hotel but to be honest if the tide is high, there is no point taking the risk of walking on the sand and you are not allowed to take the hotel chairs out there. Nevertheless, there is a terrace facing the see which is great for sun bathing. The loungers and chairs are comfortable but I found were quickly taken in the morning by beach towels with their owners not returning until later in the day. I do wish that this was managed better but I suppose this is the same as most hotels. The lawn and gardens were always kept immaculate, staff were often out at the crack of dawn maintaining the gardens and keeping it clean. The rooms were ok, very spacious but it's always about what you pay for. It could have done with lick of paint but it was pleasant and comfortable. The rooms cleaned every day, I found it quite annoying that there was no sign available to stop the cleaning but was told that I needed to inform reception of my request which I often forgotten to do. The television set had most popular worldwide channels available.I only saw Monday nights entertainment in my 11 days stay and I enjoyed the local act, duo singing reggae songs. The female singer, unbelievable! The best thing was the cooked breakfast every morning which comprised of plaintain, eggs, baked beans and other cooked local foods. A lovely start to the day! If you prefer a lighter breakfast, continental is also available. I was slightly annoyed at the service in the dining and kitchen area as it can be quite slow service and understaffed, at times I was half way through my breakfast before a hot drink was offered. I also had to wait for food to be be replaced once it was finished, sometimes it seemed like the food levels were not monitored. Nevertheless, service often came with a smile!I would recommend this hotel definitely to couples, families and only friends if you are wanting peace and tranquility. I would definitely return to hotel butterfly beach, thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Thank you!
1st time visitors & had a blast! Flew VA 747 fm Mcr,(try for a window seat on the left you'll get to see the whole west coast & beyond upon final approach) door to door was 13 hrs, although compulsory immigration forms & Barbados paced baggage handlers cost an hour at the airport, transfer was 15 mins, just made the Monday meet & greet rum punch hour with 2 mins to spare! Everything you've read is true about the hotel, a big plus is the location, right on the main drag, you wont wait long for buses & you'll be dropped off right on the door, there are 2 bars very close by, Bar 1 & Charlie's both run by x pats you can get a wealth of info from Ian in Bar 1 who was more than happy to pull up a chair. The hotel also provide a big hard back Barbados 2016 book in every room I found it very handy for restaurants days out etc. My only gripe was my room faced a property with 2 labs who insisted on intermittent barking from 4am onwards, not really the hotels fault but by the 3rd night I was ready for the supermarket pet section muzzle hunting! Ate lunch once there, a lovely meal very reasonably priced & a great setting in the open air dining room/terrace & if you lunch tween 1 & 2 you'll get 4 beers for 12bbd. OK now the money thing I opted for BBD rather than U.S. there is no difference or advantage, DO NOT change all yr money in UK, I got 11p difference at the bank 10 mins walk away than M&S, I was instantly 110BBD better off, & trust me people you'll need every penny as Barbados is expensive. Excursions offered in the hotel are plentiful but again expensive. I bought the Cool Runnings catamaran trip, well worth the money( free bar,lunch & transport promote it nicely) it's all you'd expect from a Caribbean jolly. For a great Wed night out head to Harbour Lights on Carlisle Bay, you'll need to prebook tho, again free bar dinner & transport & a superb night of lively Barbadian entertainment. A few days under my own steam, 1 ended up on a restaurant terrace in Bathsheba on the east coast called the Round house, the club sandwich, beer & view will live very long in the memory, reggae bus to Bridgetown, Bridgetown to Bathsheba about an hour all for 4bbd & if the drivers music is your taste then result! And for a nice long barefoot beach walk, use the yellow & blue bus (still 2BBD) from the stop near the hotel to Speightown & get off at Holetown there is a designer shopping outlet there (Limegrove), after your CC has took a beating head to the beach & walk down the coast passing bars & restaurants en route, when you're ready for off just get back on the main Rd & use the next Bridgetown or Oistins bus. In summary you'll enjoy Barbs & her people it is a tourist trap tho & this reflects on almost everything you do.
Third time at the Butterfly and everything top class for a 3 star hotel, great beachside location, clean rooms, friendly staff & 2 happy hours. The only drawback is the middle block does not have a lift, bit of a slog up the stairs with luggage.
Made to feel very welcome! We chatted to and got to know the staff and will miss them! Lovely clean rooms and grounds with lots to do. Loved watching the sunset over the sea and being able to walk straight out onto the beach. Able to get GBP changed at the desk at a great rate. Thank you!!
