Great Location

We have stayed here 3 times this year. The location is fabulous right in Holetown with all the great restaurants on your doorstep. The beach and sunsets are worth it alone. The staff are always friendly and the rooms spacious and clean. The pool is rather small but who needs it with the caribbean sea right outside our room. Better for couples than family with small children.

Great time!

There is a star rating on hotels for a reason. Enough of ppl complaining when it's clearly a 3 star. If you want a 5 star pay for it and stop whinning.Staff amazing....thanks John (Drexel) and Jamal...and the other bar staff...All the kitchen staff for their hard work and delicious food.Lovely beach and beautiful ocean.Dislike...Not a fan of the a la carte...buffett way better.They are totally renovating after this season any way.Please take care of old rasta Charlie on the beach...he's homeless and a wonderful soul.

great time in Barbados

great time had in Discovery Bay hotel. Husband and I were in Barbados for a 60th and 30th birthday celebration in Mullins Beach . We stayed here for 11 nights - location was excellent - the hotel is right on the beach and within walking distance of Holetown nightlife. Food was great - al a carte nights very good as was the buffet - I'm not sure they could have provided any more choices given the size of the hotel. yes it could do with a bit of an update but your in the Caribbean on a island that gets battered by the elements and it rains sometimes so you are going to get some wear and tear. Its not a 5star hotel but we didn't pay for one!. The room was clean and tidy and quite big - we overlooked the beach - sunsets are brilliant . Staff were lovely - very helpful whenever we asked for directions or help and very courteous - I would say better than we have had in quite a few European hotels. Charlie on the beach is a lovely old man who has been thorough a tough time and sells lovely jewellery. We will definitely be back - hopefully next year

Disappointed as the building housing my room & my room badly needed refurbishing.

The guttering was damaged directly above my ground floor room so during any rainfall the water drained to the dip in the guttering producing a waterfall. This then left 2 huge muddy puddles either side of the concrete path from my patio to the communal garden outside. Rain also came on to my patio meaning it was difficult drying towels/swimwear outside. The patio door did not close without always locking it. The door always slid back open by about 6" and when locked close there was a small gap allowing the warm air/bugs to come through. The tiling in the bathroom was so old and bits were missing. The bath was old and discoloured. The taps to both bath and basin were discoloured & scratched. The bedside lampshades once white, were speckled with black spots & more beige than white. The bed was comfortable though and the room was spacious. The pool had damaged tiling on the bottom which possibly could cause damage to feet. Most of the sunbeds on the beach were difficult to get to go flat as the plastic fabric would not give sufficiently so when you sat on the bed the head rest end would shoot upwards!
