- What's Included
Stayed here for 10 days from 13th March, what a wonderful hotel, lovely staff, good food, beautiful location, will definitely be booking a return next year, quaint comfortable rooms, hair dryer, ironing board and iron, fridge, tea & coffee making facilities, right in the beach, catch the reggae bus to st Lawrence gap or stroll down to Oistins, cannot sell this place enough - love it here and devastated to be leaving Thursday 😢
You would really have to nit pick if you wanted to be critical of the Butterfly Beach. It is a friendly Bajan family hotel and I can fully understand why folks return here regularly. We have not been to Barbados for 17 years and the place has changed a lot - it is far more expensive now and a lot more expensive than the Far East.The hotel rooms are well equipped and one gets used to the road noise and the pesky birds always looking for a meal. The cleaning staff are delightful ladies who do an excellent job. The restaurant serves ok food from regular set menus and the live evening entertainment is really good. The hotel is an easy walk into Oistins. The breakfast was adequate although I was quite surprised boiled eggs were not on offer. It is great to have breakfast overlooking Maxwell Bay with the warm breeze and the fantastic Caribbean sea.My wife and I would go back. Barbados is one of those places you need 3 days to get used to the quirky sedate pace of things.A brilliant facility at the Butterfly Beach is the left luggage room and to availability of showers prior to the evening flights to the UK.
Checking in was easy, we was impressed with the welcome that we received, having stayed here some years ago. All the staff was friendly and helpful. This is a lovely 3* hotel, situated overlooking a small beach and the fabulous turquoise ocean. Yes, it could do with a lick of paint in places, but as other reviewers have commented before; this is a really pleasant, informal and chilled out hotel. Not 5 star, but you aren't paying 5 star prices. The rooms are charmingly simple in Caribbean style and very clean. Return clientele that speaks volumes of this hotel, and how you are treated by staff working here. We were on the bed & breakfast basic it was relaxed affaire with either continental or full cooked buffet, juice, toast, cake, or a good supply of tea or coffee. The staff are attentive and friendly. and were very well looked after. IF, we were in at lunchtime, the Roti Man next door was wonderful selection, is other guests will confirm. Which serves Roti of your choice? They are extremely cheap on the beers. Also, try bar 1, right across the road where Ian and Christine the owners makes you very welcome. For the evening meal there was plenty of choice, there is Oistins is 10 minutes away, while and St Lawrence Gap is 10 minutes away in other direction. Use the Reggae buses if you like loud music – they are brilliant fun and only $2 a trip, or there proper buses you can take. Every day at 5pm at was happy hour with BOGOF, BuyOne gets one free that seemed while popular for some reason. We only ate twice that the hotel, once was the first night when the first arrived, the other was barbeque night with Steel Pan music and Manager’s Rum Punch Party with free rum punch, both times, we dined outside on the terrace only yards from the seashore. The pool area was clean and spacious, not crowded and there was a private gate onto the beach, which was stunning! The aircon worked well and kept the room at a comfortable temperature. Great little onsite shop with very reasonable prices for gifts, no need to shop anywhere else. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would definitely return sometime in the future.
Stayed for a week end February 2016. Decided to upgrade to half board before we went, so pleased we did the food was amazing. Room basic but spotlessly clean as was the whole hotel. Not really a pool person but we did have 1 day round there unfortunately all the shade had been reserved by breakfast so husband burnt so we hired a car the rest of the week and explored the island and visiting their amazing beaches.
Back again to see all the same friendly staff, like returning to an extended family.The rooms are again clean, and whilst fairly basic we have separate en-suite with shower, toilet & wash-hand basin.In the room is a small sink, kettle, toaster & 4 ring hob cooker (no grill, oven or microwave).Great location, handy for busses all over the Island, particularly the South & West coasts, plus walking distance from Oistins where we have bought both a cooked fish meal & also bought fresh raw fish to pan-fry in our room.Next door is a great little Roti shop & across the road is a great Chinese so no shortage of affordable dining options.Hopefully the prices stay low & Sterling appreciates against the US Dollar, before next years trip!
