The word Europa is associated with a Greek Myth. It's a myth that this place thinks it is a resort of any sort.
First off, this place is located away from everything. If you're in Barbados for fun and to experience the culture, this is not the place to stay.
Secondly, they charge you a $89 fee (U.S dollars) for electricity as soon as you step foot onto the property. Depending on how you book your stay, they also charge a fee to use the air conditioner in the bedroom. That is the only room with air conditioning. In a country that averages 90 degree days, the only room you can cool down in is the bedroom. To make things even more upsetting, they attach the key to the pad lock that locks the room to the card you have to insert into a slot for the air conditioner in order for it to run. Yes, you have to put a card into a slot for the AC to run. So, you pay $89 for electricity but with their setup, you can't leave the AC running because if you leave the room, you need the key which is attached to the card. In case you missed what I just said, there is a regular store bought pad lock that protects your room and belongings. If you are sharing the room with someone who plans on being out late, you either have to be locked in the room or leave the door unlocked at night. You can wake up at 3AM to let the person in as well.
Regarding the room itself. It is mediocre and very outdated. The room has a very old smell to it. To make things worst, when you first run the water, it is brown in color and it has a very nasty odor. It smells like a sewer. They tell you to run the water for a while so that the brownish color eventually goes away. The color may go away but the odor does not. It smelt horrible the entire time. In the kitchen, the utensils had chips on paint stuck to them. If that is lead paint, that is a major violation.
Another issue we had was that of simply getting fresh towels for the room. We were informed that we were only entitled to 1 towel per week. Yes, in a 90 degree country where you may shower multiples times a day, you're allowed 1 towel. Even in my own home I use 2 or 3 towels within a week. On top of house cleaning not replacing towels, they do not make your bed when you leave for for the day. I have never been in a hotel or even a motel where the bed was not made. It is normal practice.
The other major issue is the WiFi. There is no WiFi in any of the rooms. You have to go to the pool and bar area for WiFi connectivity. When you first walk in, if you're still brave enough to book after reading this, you'll see the wireless router at the check-in desk. That is what you'll be using. Even at the pool, the WiFi is unstable. I tried using an app on my phone to speak to my family back in the U.S and the call kept chipping out. I had to walk closer to the front desk and at that point, you can't have a personal conversation without the person at the front desk hearing every word. A couple nights i tried standing by the bar but the music from the bar was so loud I couldn't hold a decent conversation.
I was born and raised in Barbados and I desperately needed a room due to a death in the family. This "resort" was given through Westgate. I tried to cancel after 20 minutes on the premises but was informed i could not cancel. I will no longer be doing business with Westgate and I will never stay at All Seasons again. I would rather sleep in my rental car.
I urge you and I beg you to not book this place. My first 2 nights in Barbados I stayed at Infinity on The Beach on St. Lawrence Gap. It is decades ahead of this place. You will live to regret it. That's if you don't drink the water.

This resort was well below average. It's a 20 minute walk to beach/shopping through a less than desirable area. Their shuttle service only runs twice a day on a set schedule, which very likely will not be when you want to go. The pictures certainly did not represent my "cottage", which was outdated and in major need of a kitchen update. There is AC in the bedroom only and does not cool the entire unit as was indicated. The shower head was falling off and simply dribbled water; maintenance checked it out but did not fix it. There are padlocks to secure the doors. I was scheduled to stay the week, and left after one night.

On the plus side, the staff was very friendly.

There are plenty of swanky hotels in Barbados, we walked past many and had the odd beer in them, full of Americans and wealthy Brits. My view of those hotels is that they look good but service is often poor and most Bajans look like smartly dressed, reluctant workers in such surroundings. The Europa Hotel is the real deal if you want a more authentic experience. Large grounds; American condo style, with relaxed friendly staff. Excellent room cleaning and everthing you might need to make a spacious self-catering 'home from home'. A quiet friendly relaxed place with a Curry House beside the pool. The curry is probably 50% more expensive than at home and portions slightly smaller but a great setting beside the illuminated pool. Huge bedrooms, slightly dated but charming. This place grew on me as the holiday progressed and would be happy to return. I'm quite fussy and appreciate contemporary hotels but this experience was so relaxed and free with everything catered for that I could forgive any rough edges. There is a shuttle bus which can be used twice a day, lovely obliging staff, excellent cleaning, pool table, restaurant, cable TV, iron and board.....all the basic kitchen things you need to self cater and hardly any mosquitoes. It's situated a few minutes walk from the sea close to some of the prettiest quietest beaches. I snorkeled with turtles by hijacking a glass bottomed boat feeding show. Plenty of shops nearby, a fairly Americanised feel. Great local buses at $2 (bajan) per journey regardless of length, some are playing reggae on board, some gospel, it's all very cheerful and uplifting. Get out and mix with the people, especially go to the fish fry in Oistins on Friday evening for music and food. Be brave and get bus 27 from the airport for $2 instead of a taxi for $60. Forgive the slightly rough edges in places because substance wins over style here. I would have no hesitation in going back.

Room Tip: not too close to reception is best.

Great place for a quiet holidays. Cottages are perfect for those who love to cook their own food. I especially enjoyed my long breakfasts in the terrace, while feeding birds or monkeys, and quiet evenings with bowl of delicious fruit salads while watching TV or listening to tree frogs:) It's a nice walking distance to the beach, which was just perfect for my early morning exercise, and Holetown - for supermarket, shops, restaurants, or the post office, if you feel like you must send 'a card from the paradise':) There are also couple public beaches, which I loved for socialising. Throughout my whole holidays I felt totally safe, and found everyone very friendly and helpful. The hotel staff was exceptional. Everyone seamed relaxed and happy, while being very friendly and helpful organising trips and answering questions.The pool area was nice and clean, great to enjoy some sunshine (and some shade when you have to:)) There is a free wifi, which works well in the public hotel areas. All in all, I had a really pleasant stay at the All Seasons Resort, and would definitely love to come back!
