It was awesome! Staff (Service), Food, Entertainment! Hardly left the resort! It was lovely and can't wait to return! The room was clean and spacious and the view was breathtaking (one bedroom oceanfront). Close to supermarket, cinema, close to main road. We stayed for our first anniversary; staff and service made this occasion soooo memorable. Troy (front desk) was very impressive! in fact, the entire compliment of staff were unbelievable! This place is the classic romantic hideaway! Loved the Piano Bar and its atmosphere. No review can fully justify how incredible this place is!
Just got back after a week staying here. Myself and my partner have had a good time despite a few niggles.I've stayed in some amazing hotels due to the job I do.This hotel is completely lovely but one thing that ruins it is the people that stay here. Myself and my partner called them the 'peg police'. Basically if your not up at the crack of dawn there is literally no beds available-it's completely ridiculous! Towels pegged on every bed. We spent most of the time led on the beach on sandy lane.Another thing about this hotel-it's very much in the shade by trees and buildings.The food....and I'm very fussy....absolutely lovely. We didn't have one bad meal. It was all yummy.We tried to get into Enid's but as we weren't up at the crack of dawn every morning so missed out on bookings. We also couldn't pick times for dinner as we were never first at breakfast. 9-9.30 we went to breakfast every day so it wasn't late. Me and my partner are 32&34 and we're the youngest in the hotel by far.This hotel has zero entertainment and is full of older cruise passengers. The spa- perfect ending to our holiday. The ladies we had were 5* and we both agreed our treatments were some of the best we'd ever had. Massive compliments to all the ladies in there.One lovely lady also made our stay enjoyable. Patricia....I don't know where to start. This lady clearly loves her job as it shows in her work. Beaming smiles,jokes,laughs, just a lovely lady. This hotel is so lucky to have her. She's by far the friendliest. She even gave us both a goodbye cuddle when we left. We were in room 215. Amazing room-one of the nicest we've stayed in the Caribbean. Apart from the huge wifi box on the tree outside which ruined our photos. Water- you can get iced cold water from the taps around the hotel and there's cups next to them. There's nothing in the room though which isn't great on the first night when your dying of thirst. Just one bottle of water in the room would be nice.We've had a good stay but wouldn't return.
The Club is in a fabulous location, shops, bank, bus stop just across the road. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and cannot do enough for you, and definitely made you feel special. Some of the rooms need an update, the first room we were in 155 on ground floor, had the sink in the bedroom area and the rest of the shower room was small with no shelves. We were moved to 365 on 2nd floor which was a great room which had a well fitted shower room, high ceiling and large balcony and a glimpse of the sea. The Club is compact and you don't have to walk far for anything. The gardens and pool are well manicured and the beach terrace is a fab place to relax under the trees with the beautiful Carribbean just a few steps away and of course fantastic sunsets with a cocktail of the day to sip whilst watching. The food was great, plenty to choose from and all very tasty and varied. The food in Enids was good also with the benefit of air conditioning. We did have some rain which at times was heavy but it was still warm, so what the heck. Lots of complimentary water activities. Water polo in the pool in the afternoon if you were feeling energetic. Great place to go and chill out and be spoiled.
The staff was super friendly and accommodating. We checked in very late at night. We were met with enthusiasm and the they were vey helpful getting our luggage up to our room. In our room they had some snacks waiting for us, a small bottle of Mount Gay Rum, Coke and Ice for a drink. Our we stayed a total of 3 nights. One night before our cruise and then 2 nights after our cruise. The first night we were in an older less updated room. The room was across from the piano bar (which is open until 2:00 AM) and it was a little noisy because the room had louvers in the wall that were basically open to the outside. The updated rooms have windows where the louvers were. The room was clean, AC was cold, furniture was updated, room was painted but the bathroom and closet hadn't been updated and we didn't have a working safe. All together for one night it was fine. Upon returning after our cruise we checked into another room which had been fully updated with a new bathroom, and closet with working modern safe. It was not near the bar and was much quieter as the louvers had been replaced with windows. Rooms are spacious, cold AC and large balconies. I'd give the rooms a 4star rating minus the first room we had that was still a 3. The resort exterior is in need of some cosmetic maintenance. There was some visible wood rot and the whole exterior needed painting. The food was good. Not great but good. The wine selection was just OK and there was an up charge for any of the good wines. The Banks beer was our go to drink. Always good and cold. There was a nice selection of foods for lunch including salads, burgers, and usually something a little more local. Breakfast there were always eggs and omelets made to order and a buffet with the usual fruit, meats, breads, yogurt etc. Dinner was off the menu. We ate at Enid's one night which is their "upscale" restaurant onsite. I had the lamb chop which was good. Again not great but good. The second night we ate at the main dining room. I had the sirloin and it was good. I ate every bite. The dining room for all meals except Enid's is outside in a covered pavilion overlooking the water. All tables with white cloths and candle lamps. Very cozy and romantic. We spent a fair amount of time on the beach and at the pool just relaxing. There are many nice shops in walking distance from the resort. Across from the resort there are residential neighborhoods that you can walk thru if you want exercise or just want to check out the island. Overall the resort is very laid back. It's in a great location, the service is friendly, the food is good and the price for us was right. I've stayed in one of their sister properties in Antigua. It was in better shape but not nearly as friendly as Barbados. We would consider going back again. I think if you go with the expectations laid out in my review you will not be disappointed. A 5 star resort it is not but it great for what we paid. Beautiful, water, sunsets and great price! If you like rum take the Mount Gay Rum tour. It was very nice.
