We stayed at the Radisson Aquatica Apr 2014. staff were very helpful, at arrival complimentary rum punch was a good start. Our room was not exactly as promised, i had a balcony and it had partial view parlty sea view so i was not impressed.
Sleep quality was good air-conditioning was bit loud and we could still hear the waves in our room.
Food : we had breakfast lunch and dinner at the hotel it was room only deal and it was not value for money,open breakfast was if i remember correctly Us $30 each .
breakfast was okay, location of the restaurant was perfect,and good thing was they did not charge for kids 3 and 6 but staff were really rude ,kids takes time to eat and they brought the bill while kids were still eating of course they did not get tip for this attitude (they already charging service maybe that why they don't need to be nice )

rest of the time we went to hilton for breakfast 5 minute walk and open buffet lunch cost i think $35 each and you can not compare to radisson, staff and service was amazing ,people breakfast was great.it was worth it.

lunch was overpriced in restaurant ,but the beach coffee had nice value kids meals burgers and nuggets came with chips and i think it was us $10 each meal and the rum puchs all were really good price too

dinner was not good we could not leave the hotel kids were very tired it cost us $150 2 adult meal and it was a asian night,who want to eat average Asian food in barbados? it was not good at all

another night we went to brown sugar it was again very averega restaurant, we order 2 adult meal 2 kids meal ,we waited 15 min for kids slept before the food we wanted to cancel it they said food was ready ,we said fine bring it ,i tok them 25 minute more so they were lying anyway my dinner came 40 min later ,i ordered famous flying fish, i had over cooked chicken and chips fornt of me ,than i send it back so waited 10 more minutes i had fried fish, ketchup and sauce on the side ,it was like a joke ,we paid us $110 for food no complimentary discount or even sorry , they chared service again,and they charged for the kids food not eaten ,it was not a good place to go, food was not good in Caribbeans .

The beach was the great little beach but it was not safe to swim for the kids,also radiison and hilton share the same part of big bay,hilton side was secure ,no stranger was able to walk in to hotel beach ,radiison beach was open public beach anyone could come and seat on the sun beds it was not safe ,it was open, you had daily Barbados sellers come and try to sell you thinks on the beach even on the pool area,and when you say no to pay stupid price for they overrated bids they get aggressive than we had people asking to take us to tours very minute, it did not fell safe and staff did ot do anything about them.i did not feel it was safe place for kids anyone could come over and takes your things.

well overall i would not go there again and if you have Small kids don't go there.

Room Tip: well make sure get a good view

Dear Eliff,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review here on Tripadvisor.com . Your very positive comments regarding your arrival, our location, sleep quality and quality of rooms are very much appreciated . I'm sorry that in general, we are unable to exceed your expectations with regard to our culinary offer. We do strive to satisfy all palates, but sadly this is not always realistic .

I'm bit surprised that you did not find the beach safe for swimming, as Carlisle Bay is well known for its very calm and crystal clear Caribbean water. In addition I must stress that all beaches in Barbados must be made available to the general public by law, including the stretch adjacent to the Hilton Barbados. We however do employ 24 hour Security, who ensure that our Guests are safe in a public space .

We thank you for choosing the Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados, and really do hope that you would reconsider, vacationing with us again .

Kind Regards
Gerry Lewis

I stayed here for business while working in Barbados and was very satisfied with the hotel. The location was excellent for our purposes, as we were attending a conference at another nearby hotel and could easily walk there. The rooms here were nice but a bit dated in terms of the furnishings and decor, and the bathroom was really nothing special at all (always a disappointment when that happens!)

Regardless, the view from my room was gorgeous: a spectacular beach vista. Breakfast here was nice with plenty of vegetarian options in the buffet, and a beautiful, large, outdoor dining area on a pier. Great for breakfast, but their menu for dinner and lunch is not so great, I would recommend going elsewhere to eat.

The fitness center was nice, with a couple treadmills and some weights. Very small, but just what you need for a quick workout. Definitely the high point of this hotel is the amazing beach attached to it. The sand is white and fantastic, and the water is the turquoise Caribbean blue that everyone comes for. I was able to spend quite a bit of downtime on the beach and was very, very thankful for it. Cocktail service to lounge chairs is not so good though and you have to hunt for staff. There is a pool as well, quite close to the beach, but we barely used it. Some locals do come over to the hotel beach area as it's not private, but ultimately the beach is not very crowded at all. If you want to go to the larger public beach, it's a very short walk, and you can mingle with the locals.

The staff here were incredibly friendly and charming. They were able to advise on a number of different things including tourist attractions, restaurants, taxis, and more. They were great.

I can't really say much about the value as this was paid for on the company dime, but I would definitely consider staying here again for personal travel, although I know there are far nicer resorts. This is not really that much of a resort, it's more of a regular hotel with a beach attached. So, if the resort vibe is what you're looking for you won't really get that here.

This is our first time in Barbados. The staff at this hotel are amazing. I have actually never written a review before but after receiving such great service throughout the whole hotel all week especially today when my son got hurt...they took care of the whole
situation and made sure
he got checked and was all
in the clear within minutes. I felt so cared for...and that means the world to a worried mother (in my case a little too worried). You can't ask for anything more here, beautiful beach, great food, incredible staff and caring hearts!

Dear LoriMarg,

Thank you for writing your first Trip Advisor review on the Radisson Aquatica . We appreciate your acknowledgement of the great service you received across the hotel . We were very happy to take care of your son (our little Guest) in his time of need. In a flash he was back on the white sand beach frolicking and having a great time .... kids!!

Thank you once again, looking forward to your return .

Arrived here in the late evening and didn't even know where it was as it was booked for me.
Heard the sea on arrival, opened the patio doors in the morning and found the most fantastic view.
Clean tidy room, excellent bathroom. Quiet at night which was also nice.
Would definitely stay here again.

Hello from Sunny Barbados,

Thank you for your great review . Yes indeed the Radisson Aquatica is located on a fantastic stretch of powdery white sand beach ! We are so happy that you were able to stay with us and enjoy our facilities .

You mentioned that you arrived during the night and heard the waves, as you would have seen the next morning ,as you arrive (during the day) you are met by the breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea, just meters away from the open air lobby ! What a great way to kick off your holiday .

Thank you for your pledge to return, we cant wait to welcome you back .

Best Regards

We stayed 17 nights from March 7th to March 24th 2014. Modern, bright and spacious room with flat screen TV, maintained to very high standard of cleanliness ,comfortable beds and complimentary toiletries replenished every day. We chose two balcony room with great views of the pool, beach and pier and Bridgetown. Breakfast on the pier ,over the sea , included fresh eggs cooked to your choice, delightful small cakes /scones made fresh every day and cheerful friendly service by everyone. Restaurant on an evening was quiet but a lovely location watching the sea in the moonlight. Reception staff were always helpful and beach towels available all day long. Beautiful sandy beach ideal for early morning swim in the spectacular Carlisle bay, one of the best beaches on the island.
We look forward to returning to Barbados and this wonderful hotel and wish it every success .

Room Tip: all rooms overlook the spectacular Carlisle Bay but the south rooms have the best sea views
