Caribbean Christmas

My auntie and I decided to get away for the Christmas break and booked a weeks break at Discovery Bay.It's a 3 star hotel but it has everything you could want in regards to great location in Holetown, clean rooms and bedding and the staff were all super friendly and helpful.The resort keep the beach clean and there are some bars and restaurants within a 5min walk.For the price you pay and the location you get it's a bargain.The hotels along this coast line at Christmas go for grands more per person.So if you want a good location, clean room and bedding with friendly staff it's a good shout.Some of the regular guests though are bit pretentious and set in their ways. The worlds a big place to continue to go to the same place at the same time in the same room, but that's just me.I'd definitely go back if I was on the island.

Flea Bites.

i unfortunately got thees flea bites from a quilt while staying at the Discovery Bay by Rex Resort in November 2016. I reported it to the management several times but the managements response was that they were too busy and i was told that they'd get back to me unfortunately they never did .

Lovely as before

This was our third visit to the hotel. The minute we arrived we felt at home. The staff here are amazing...I'm not going to name any incase I leave anyone out! They can't do enough to it sorting trips or helping with health issues. I don't understand how anyone can review this hotel and criticise the staff, we have never had any issues and it is the staff that makes this hotel what it is. The rooms are a little tired but it sounded like they are gradually going to re done. The clientele were very concerned that this might push up the cost. We arrived shortly after a change in management which with a small hotel could go either way. The new manager hasn't been there long enough for me to comment. I hope the staff are looked after and stay!The food improves every time we stay there. It is always freshly prepared and enough variety to find something that you like. The wine has also improved no end. We did notice that they are no longer serving local rum which is a real shame and something I would ask them to reconsider....I must add that this has nothing to do with quality! I live in a small community and strongly believe in using local.The room was kept as clean as possible...given the huge amounts of sand that insisted on following us into the room!Evening entertainment could do with a bit of a boost...what there is is OK but not enough evenings in the week.Added bonus was international rugby 7s playing across the road, they are back next year, the first weekend and we've already re booked to return! Is this hotel posh? the food beautifully presented? No But if you want good food, good company and one of the best beaches in Barbados where the beach sellers are few and far between and more interested in a chat than selling you stuff.....I would consider this one!

Relaxing holiday before Christmas

We went to this hotel for 2 weeks, i went with an open mind after reading some reviews. We were celebrating my birthday and 25th wedding anniversary along with my father and brother. After the first few days building work took place in the room next to them, they were woken at 7am with drilling and major works going on, after complaining as my father is 80 they were moved the next day, they didn't have the view they had but had peace.We also had a room change in the first few days as our air con started putting out heat and needed a part and taking apart. Once we settled in we found the resort relaxing.I found the staff to be friendly and hard working, they leave you alone, if you want to talk they chat to you, what do some people want staff that pester and bore you all day!!The food was plenty and we never wanted for anything as with the drinks.The hotel is near to local shops,bars, restaurants and a large supermarket all minutes away. We loved this hotel, no it's not a 5 star but it's a rustic colonial well earned 3 star and your holiday is what you make it, my father had a great time and we all met some lovely people from all over the world.The beach and the sea were amazing, once in you don't want to get out, the water was calm, we walked along the coast several times if you turn right out of the hotel, beach side, lovely views.I would recommend this hotel, for the money it is great, loved it and will save up and return again. Thank you for an enjoyable stay Discovery Bay.

Great place for the price

We stayed here over Christmas for 10 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it! This was not our first trip to Barbados, having done self catering and stayed at another West Coast hotel in the past. The place may have a tired look but it is spotless, has very friendly staff and excellent food. Considering full board is inexpensive compared to other hotels, what do people want for their money? Another reviewer stated that the staff have to put up with a lot of moans and rudeness from guests who to put it mildly, think they are better than others. I agree and say, learn some manners and smile, it is the Caribbean after all! Otherwise, pay a bit more and stay at a hotel with other like minded snobs and leave the rest of us to enjoy the warm hospitality of Discovery Bay.
