Island Inn Hotel

- All Inclusive Features
Great little hotel next to one of the best beaches on the island small informal and lovely would defiantly stay again ! food was exhaling with the warm welcome! Great for sightseeing in Bridgetown and the staff even gave me a memonto of our stay,a pot of the spice that they season the delightful fish dishes that they made !
The standard room was above our expectations; big, with great decor. Although it really lacked natural night. Room cleanliness wasn't great, when we arrived the bathroom was full of drippy marks and stains, which didn't leave for the duration of our stay. On the brilliant Wednesday night management cocktail party, you could not escape the loud DJ with his cheesy music and vibrating the floor bassy amp, if you wished to leave the party before 11pm, don't expect to sleep. The manager dances the whole night in a full suit in the heat, so kudos to her! - She knows how to party! Having a three course meal almost every night was so luxurious if you eat fish or meat. Unfortunately I'm vegetarian, and despite emailing weeks before arrival and being reassured there would be veggie options, we still had to notify reception 3 times further throughout the holiday. Dinner was great, but after 2 weeks of cheese sandwiches and chips being the only option for lunch, I didn't feel great at all. I feel really disappointed by this, especially after being told they would cater for my dietary requirements. Having the picnic option was lovely for day trips out, but again, cheese sandwiches only. The waitresses are so sweet, in particular the young 18 year old girl, who refused to make cocktails, but who had to run the bar on our very last night. She was super lovely to us the entire trip. I feel it was amazing of her to take up the role of bartender with no experience. We just wish we could have had one last evening cocktail before heading home. Talking of cocktails, Hasiani was incredible and so welcoming, he would made drinks off of the menu to make sure you we're happy - if you're a mojito lover I recommend him!Location is awesome. 30 min walk to bridgetown or a short bus journey. Pebbles beach on the door step and the glorious harbour lights extravaganza night a short walk away is a must! Mosquitos are a real issue, returned home looking like mr.blobby. Other wildlife is great, the cheeky birds at lunch / dinner and the notorious hotel cat made us laugh throughout the stay. Overall we really really enjoyed your stay at the Island Inn and would recommend it to friends and family back home.
We stayed here for a week. Our room overlooked the garden. Monkeys appeared most days as well as the odd humming bird. Very clean, air conditioned and a good size with a walk in wardrobe. Cleaners came in daily. Staff were very polite. The food we thought was exceptional standard for such a small place doing all inclusive. Breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choices. 3 course Lunch and dinner was mainly served to you, again in our opinion plenty of choice. From this hotel it's a 2 min walk to Pebbles beach ( no pebbles ) gorgeous smooth sand. Excellent snorkelling. 2 beds and an umbrella US $20 a day. Go early around 6am and the racehorses are out swimming. Walk past the Hilton on the left and there is a board walk to Rockley beach. Took us an hour each way. Plenty of seats en route.Turn right on the beach and under the pier to Carlisle bay. You can walk along the beach, direct into Bridgetown, around 20 mins.Bus stops are on the main road, 2 mins from hotel. We took the small reggae buses, such fun and an experience not yo miss, well worth it US$1 a trip. Tips.... take some deat mossy spray and use morning, noon and night, it was very humid when we were there, a lot of guests got bites, we didn't. Plus Take flip flops to get to and from the bar and restaurant as when it rains the paths at the hotel get flooded.All in All this was a brilliant hotel and if we get the chance we will be back.
We stayed here for 10 days in early September. The hotel is clean and staff very helpful. Rooms are kept clean daily. The food is gorgeous. Buffet style for breakfast and sometimes lunch but mainly set menu with several choices. Always plenty to drink and eat. It was my daughters birthday and i had asked for reception to order me flowers and champagne to be put on our room, which they did discreetly and quickly.I would defiantly stay here again.. Very close to the gorgeous Pebbles Beach, a minutes walk away..
Stayed here as a couple for 9 days in September. Had a lovely room near the pool in the garden area which is full of plants and trees stunning. The staff are all friendly and very helpful. The food is all cooked fresh and served to you only Breakfast is buffet style. Wednesday night there is a BBQ and the pork ribs were really delicious.The dining room has open terrace and is particularly lovely all illuminated at night. There is a wonderful quiet beach called Pebbles Beach 2 minutes walk from the front door. A morning swim before breakfast is a must white sand; blue water ;and so warm . And hardly anyone else about felt like paradise. On Sunday morning the local race horses come to the sea to swim about 6 30 am don't miss seeing this. We hired a taxito go to the Botanical gardens in Bathsheba . Dwight from the Raddison Hotel a lovely guy who does not try to rip you off. We would recommend him They is a lovely walk along a board walk the other side of the Hilton Hotel that takes you to Rockley Beach and which is stunning. On the far end of this beach thereis a Restaurant called Champers with wonderful seating area with sea views. This Hotel has all the ingredients for a lovely restful break in beautiful surroundings and is very good value. In the words of someone famous (can't think who )we will be back !!!!
