This hotel has all the hallmarks of a Caribbean retreat – a peaceful beachfront spot, private palm gardens and luxury rooms. Yet it’s just minutes from lively St Lawrence Gap.
This peaceful place is parked right on a beach. Palm gardens shelter a pair of pools, while the white sands showcase an in-house watersports centre and a sea-view restaurant.
Location isn’t the only thing that scores gold here – it’s got a rosta of off-the-wall activities like mixology lessons and boogie-boarding.

Beatiful Island, friendly people, nice hotel.
We arrived at 7pm and everything was ready, our upgraded room, our first restaurant reservation and welcome drink, (sorry forgot your name) upgraded us to room 307, beautiful ocean view and quiet. Some complaint about rooms near Chelonia restaurant / swimming pools beacause of night entertainment, but everything was quiet before 10 pm, and well youâre on vacation. Banks beer, very good, Black Label and good cocktails (not watered down) and of course Mount Gay XO, very good Rum. Asiagos was the best a la carte restaurant, but it wasnât open every day. Breakfast and lunch wasnât so good, lack of variety and quantity and British will eat everything so try to be early. After restaurants close at night thereâs nothing else to eat, after lunch, there will be a not so good pizza and hot dogs, which I didnât try. To compensate thereâs an Ice cream and coffe shop. Sailed twice, one time at Turtle Beach and one time at Crystal Cove, at Turtle, waves make it more interesting. Barbados is a beautiful safe and organized Island, diving is a must, do it with G-Fish at Carisle Bay and for island tour, ask for Darwin at the front desk, It was also very nice walking at night on the gap. Had a great time.More
Lovely hotel with great staff!
We stayed here to celebrate our Ruby Wedding anniversary (40 Years) before joining a cruise ship. We had a great room so big!! overlooking the pool. What made our holiday more special apart from the surroundings and beach were the staff... the guys at Sams beachfront (especially Dexter) always made sure we had our sunbed exactly where we wanted and always polite and obliging. Also the staff at the Waterfront restaurant... especially waitress Sue Ann for making a special treat for our Ruby wedding.... we will always remember you guys and will recommend your hotel always. One day we hope to return! The sea was at least a yellow flag for swimming, mostly red flag due to the undercurrent. I'd be wary of taking children who like to play in the sea, although good pools and clubs for children.More
Family Holidays for the Last 4 years
Perfect family get away. With 2 children 4 & 8 there is plenty to keep them amused swimming in the pools and also in the sea. They also loved the body boarding when there were a few waves! Kids club is brilliant couldn't fault anything. Premium drinks in every bar and fully stocked mini fridge in the room with all the 12/15 soft drinks inc water and banks beer. Will be going again fro sure !!!More
Relaxing family holiday
I'm a little late in submitting the review as we went last August however, I have re-booked for this summer as we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!! We were greeted with the traditional cocktail and mocktail, which was extremely refreshing after a long journey. Our room was great. Clean, well equipped and large. We had a one bedroom suite which accommodated us, a family of 4, really well. The lounge was equipped with a double sofa bed and a single bed was also included, which still left ample room. We had a great view over the pool and across the beach to the beautiful azure coloured sea. The balconies were spacious and the air con a must. Our meals, were tasty and well prepared. There was a better variety at dinner time but all in all, breakfast, lunch and dinner were fresh and tasty. Our youngest, age 11, attended the Kids' Club every day and really enjoyed the company of the lovely ladies who were attentive and kind. There was plenty for him to do. All the staff, from housekeeping, gardening and maintenance, waiting, concierge and reception were affable, polite and always said hello when you walked past. I would definitely recommend the hotel to others, indeed I have done so. It is family orientated however, we saw plenty of honeymooning couples who did not appear to mind the fact that there were some children around. All the children appeared to be well behaved therefore only joyous noises from them could be heard. We're looking forward to returning.More
Refreshed from Turtle Beach!
This was our first visit to Barbados. It was a nice relaxing 4 day vacation for the family. The hotel is perfect for families, but is small. There are various activities that go on during the day. However, we chose to stay at the beach. A special shout-out to SAM'S WATERSPORTS!! The owner and the whole team were COOL!! The Hobie Cat is included in the hotel stay! Also the Jet Skis were incredible! They were fast and well tuned. Certainly worth doing while you're there. All the staff are friendly and accommodating. The family and I enjoyed lunch at at the Waterfront Restaurant (HEY RACQUEL!!) every day and then ate dinner at the buffet. We also enjoyed breakfast at the buffet in the mornings. We were pleased with the nightly food themes at the buffet for dinner. The variety of food was splendid! The resort is generally quiet and therefore it doesn't have a nightlife. We would like to have seen more nightly activities. in addition, the rooms (especially the bathrooms) are dated and are in need of upgrades. Other than that we had a great time and will be back!More
