We stayed here during February half term.

The apartment was spacious, clean and had a good size balcony.

Location was very convenient as it was a short walk into Holetown. There were regular buses to Bridgetown from the main road and there is easy access to the beach for sunsets.

We didn't use the pool - wasn't really that inviting and we preferred to swim in the sea.

The owners were very approachable, friendly and helpful.

Would highly recommend staying here if you are on a budget.

We didn't love this hotel, but given how pricey Barbados is the Halcyon Palm is a good budget option. The positives include: lovely and helpful staff (they helped us hire a car and order taxis), fantastic location (equidistance from Holetown and the shops at Sunset Crest which means you can travel on foot) and it has all of the basics that you need - if you are missing something, our experience is that the front desk provide it immediately.

We had a bit of a false start, our key didn't work and neither did the fan in the living room (there is only air con in the bedroom), we had 4 single beds but had asked for a double bed and travel cot - but the staff rectified the situation the next day so we can't complain. The negatives to be aware of are as follows:- the air con isn't very effective and is only in the bedroom, the facilities really are quite basic (I've seen the word tired mentioned), the pool loungers are mostly broken and there isn't a shower and lastly, we found the hygiene a little questionable. It was difficult to get towels and sheets changed, although in the second week they did change our sheets and gave us extra towels. Don't walk around in barefoot as the floor isn't particularly clean either. Also, the travel cot doesn't have a mattress, they gave us a duvet to fold up and use to make it more comfortable which worked well.

All in all, given the price I feel that we can't complain, it is basic but good value. Replacing the sun loungers in the pool area and fitting a basic shower would make the world of difference.

We have just returned from a 2 weeks stay at the Halcyon and had a great time! If you are looking for self catering this place is great & the staff too, its like having your own little bungalow.The only thing I would say is that the apartments could do with a sweeping brush & mop so you could clean as you go and there is no need for the lovely cleaning ladies to empty the bins or make the beds,I did my own.Barbados is amazing with the friendliest people ever! The karaoke night at the travellers palm fri night is good fun & the rum puch is a must!
