When we arrived at Beach View we were immediately greeted with a warm welcome from a young guy as we stepped out of our Taxi, he then took us and our bags to our room which took my breath away for a moment the view's were amazing, straight over the Caribbean sea. the apartment itself was wonderful with big spacious clean rooms which have been furnished very well and modern. however this room amazing as it was did not have an outdoor area so we asked to move after a few days and Carrey the young daughter of the owner was very helpful in doing so, at first she had no availability but managed to fit us in to another room on the 5th day in to our stay, the new room was as amazing as the other one but it had a big balcony with views just as wonderful as the room before, this made our stay in Barbados all the more magical!.

The pool area is very quite and has plenty of sun loungers so no worry of not getting a space and it seemed to be cleaned regularly by the grounds staff, it also had a water cooler for guests to help themselves throughout the day which is nice in the heat, but also just round the corner is the bar which is a little hut that sells beer, wines soft drinks etc and some bar snacks all freshly made and very tasty.
At the Beach View they have a few night events you can get involved in like a BBQ night at the hut bar which is a great opportunity to mix with other guests and have some great food and drink, we also went along to a classical orchestra performance the hotel put on by the pool and it was just magical. There are many other things they do but if you don't want to go along to any of the events it's very easy to stay out of the way as the complex is quite spacious.

All in all we found our stay at Beach View wonderful, great staff and apartments.

Huge appartments, with everything available, from first Breakfast in the fridge to washing machine. Welcome has been great and service always effective and efficient.
Location is very convenient with bus stop to North (Holetown) and South (Bridgetown) just in front of the hotel.

More targeted to families as children are numerpous, and kind of noisy :-); around the swimming pool.

Room Tip: Some room are to close to the Noisy road.

We enjoyed our time at Beachview having spent the week with some great people. The apartments are very well equipped, clean and roomy. Everything has been said in previous reviews. The staff were very obliging and really helpful with info and booking restaurants and car hire. In particular, Robin and his team create a really friendly atmosphere around the place. Make sure you go to the barbeque and Robins cocktail party to meet fellow guests as this is very much part of the Beachview experience. All in all a great week.

Room Tip: High rooms for sea views and ground floor for easy pool access. You'll lose some privacy in some...

We have be to Barbados, twice a year for the past thirteen years, how come we missed this little jewel next to our favourite beach.
The accommodation exceeded expectations. We had a garden two bedroom apartment. We were with my sister and her partner and I had reservations that we might be in close proximity of each other, this was certainly not the case.
The beach is literally accross the road.
The pool is clean and well maintained.
The Boss's house party well it was in such a beautiful setting just along from the Cliff Restaurant.
Everyone helpful from Robin. Carrie and all the staff. They all made our stay so much easier.

we booked Beachview as we did not want to be reliant on our hire car (booked by the office very cheaply and efficiently) The apartments are in 4 blocks and there are 36 apartments. The interiors are clean and nicely furnished. Albeit they dont blow you away. We enjoyed the central pool area and didn't have to worry about sunbeds as there were always plenty. Immediately across the road in front on the apartments is Paynes Bay. If you walk down onto the beach and turn right the beach separated from the road by villas and apartments. The snorkelling is excellent immediately off the beach. This is the beach that the turtle trips come to.

If you want a nice treat without spending to much go for Sundowners at The Cliff restaurant. It is 200 meters from the apartments and is a spectacular setting. The sea is illuminated and you can watch sting rays and others large fish swim about. The staff are more then happy to serve you drinks without a dinner reservation. If you can push the boat out for dinner all the better for a once in a lifetime treat. We took our two daughters aged 11 and 7 and were made to feel very welcome.

Room Tip: we were delighted as we had a first floor apartment in the Avocado Block which gives you a lovely se...

My wife, adult son and I stayed at the above from the 27th November until the 6th November . The accommodation was excellent clean, spacious,beautifully decorated and very well equipped.
The staff were very helpful and like everyone we met in Barbados very friendly nothing was to much trouble. The property is within walking distance to a number of bars and restaurants and the local beach is only 2 minute walk away. A number of reviewers have mentioned the noise from the main road which runs along side of the property but it did not bother us at all.
I can fully endorse what virtually every other reviewer has said about Beach View it is an excellent base and I loom forward to staying there again.
