“Superb in every respect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

We stayed here for two weeks in August. The apartment was everything and more than we had dared to hope for. Extremely well equipped, beautifully appointed, fantastic views from the large balconies! We had a second floor room and yes, there was a little road noise, but you will find that in every other hotel along the coast as well. We like peace and quiet and it did not impact adversely on our stay one bit! It was cleaned throughout every day, including towel changes where required. Bedding was changed on a four day rota. Superbly effective air conditioning too : ).
The management team were friendly and extremely customer focussed, they did everything to make our stay a pleasant one where nothing was too much trouble. We would whole heartedly recommend this condo apartment hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 209 second floor, great views across the pool and to the sea. Although ALL rooms face th...

This was our first visit to Barbados and Beach View was chosen based on great TripAdvisor feedback. It surpassed our expectations - fantastic location, 1-2mins walk to the beach, spacious clean apartments, the set up/staff are amazing and they go the extra mile in customer service. Throughout the week a number of services (BBQ, drinks at managers property) were laid on which were unexpected but very welcome. Ideally located with great transport links (including the yellow buses!) and walking distance to both fine dining and Bajan restaurants. Would definitely come back and we have already recommended Beach View to family and friends

I was a bit apprehensive of using an apartment instead of a hotel but I was happily wrong.

We booked this on price and Tripadvisor reviews and thank you to everyone because the reviews were very accurate!

We turned up, signed in and bags were taken to our room. Our apartment was on the 2nd floor and was MASSIVE! Very clean and I mean immaculate, new milk carton in the fridge with teabags on the counter! Bed was huge and so comfortable. Living room was homely and TV worked, in fact, everything worked and we had no issues for our 10 days here.

The staff (especially the owners daughter who I can't remember the name of, sorry) were so helpful. They booked us all the best restaurants and our trips without charge and gave us a note under our door with our reservation details.

One day a week, they hold drinks at the owners house with free transport to and fro, he and the family were so welcoming, interesting and genuine. The house itself is on the coast and was something you dream of!

The pool which we used a couple times, was clean and nice to read a book in.

The "Hut" where you can get breakfast and lunch was lovely, 2 lovely local ladies run it and I used it for breakfast daily, the smoked salmon bagels were a perfect start. Very fair price.

Apartment was cleaned every day with fresh towels, bed made and kitchen cleaned. Perfect.

My only small gripe was the Wifi, it was very intermittent and made working on the laptop, difficult and sometimes, you can hear the road depending on where you stay on the site.

I would recommend this to all my friends, the experience was perfect, staff amazing, location brilliant.
Thanks guys!

Room Tip: Top Floor Room - furthest away from the road!

Our first visit to Barbados and Beach View Hotel. Room was very big and clean, with great full kitchen, living room, dining room, walk-out patio, and our own laundry machines. Air conditioner had some issues one night, but was promptly serviced the next morning (very impressed with the speed and efficiency of the servicing).

Pool was large, clean and maintained, and gorgeous sandy beach across the street with warm, clear water. Be adventurous, grab a snorkel and mask from reception for free, and explore the amazing marine life that inhabits the reefs a short distance out from the beach. Nearby tours at cost very worth it- swam with turtles, fish, and explored a sunken ship. Incredible experience. Would go back again.

This apartment/hotel is great for families, groups or couples. My husband and I stayed with my mother and brother joining us. We were there on holiday with a little family business thrown in. It is a perfect location for everything .
Sonia, Carrie and the entire staff was very helpful. The room are huge. We had a ground floor apartment near the pool, at first was a little worry it would be noisy, but this was not the case at all!
We truly enjoyed ourselves and would stay again

Beach View is a great hotel for families, groups and anyone wanting to get the most from a holiday in Barbados. Carrie, Robin and the team couldn't be more helpful; the rooms / apartments are huge, very well furnished and most with great views of the sea and the whole hotel is kept meticulously mainteined.

We understand that the hotel is closing in September for a minor refurbishment so the standard will continue to be excellent.

Room Tip: if you wnat a sea view get one of the rooms on the first or second floors, go for ground floor rooms...

Stayed here for five glorious days in July 2014 with my wife following a weeks cruise with Carnival round the southern caribbean.
This is the first time I have ever been gobsmacked when entering a hotel room, I thought they had the resrvation mixed up and given us the wrong room. We had a huge three bedroomed apartment and as we were only using one bedroom the other two were locked which was fine with us.
The property itself is ultra clean and very modern with exquisite furnishings. Plasma TV, fully equipped kitchen, great air con, and a sea view to die for!
Fabulous location, great property, great value for money, and lovely host. Dont miss the owners cocktail party at his fabulous beach front villa as you get the opportunity to meet and talk to other guests. Oistins fish fry held each Friday is a must and only a relatively short bus ride away for $2 bajan dollars!
Looking forward to going back next year.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea views, some with larger balconies than others.
