The House is quite frankly the best hotel I've ever stayed in. Fantastic amenities, great views, extremely attentive and personable staff, and the list goes on. The service I received here was unparalleled - special shoutout to Agnes, Jennifer, and Christopher for really making my week special, although frankly every single staff member I encountered was fantastic, helpful, and fun. If for some reason you're still on the fence despite all of the glowing reviews here on TripAdvisor, just do yourself a favor and book your room here now. You won't regret it.

Checked in at 13.00 hours after being 'fast tracked' through customs and picked up by the hotels taxi.
Rum punch (phew) and cold towels on arrival followed by a tour of the hotel - all very nice and calming.
Then we realise we have left a bag at the airport - no problems, the hotel sorts it and within an hour we are reunited with our errant bag and ready for another rum punch.
The evening meal was excellent.
Looking forward to another day in paradise - tomorrow.
Thank you the staff of The House Barbados.

We stayed only four days at this hotel as we had flown in from another destination. The venue did not disapoint. It was little things like the afternoon tea and ice cream being given out that made an already special stay even more special. The staff were extremely helpful and constantly at hand to make our stay exta enjoyable.
We had a lovely punch cocktail upon our arrival and the champagne breakfast in the mornings were extremely enjoyable!
Add to this a Hotel with no screaming children just makes it ideal for adults to get away from it all. Will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: All of the good restaurants are in extremely close proximity to this hotel. If you like the good things in life you will definitely enjoy this hotel.

We spent a week at the House this past March. The worst thing was that we only spent a week!! Next time it will be 10 days!

We love Barbados. It is safe, clean and friendly. The House makes it even better. Champagne breakfast every morning with eggs cooed to order. High Tea at 4PM and cocktail hour at 6:30. No wonder we gained weight!

The staff was wonderful. One guy walked around offering to clean your sunglasses. At other times they brought ice cold facecloths, cooling sprays, ice cream.....

You will really feel pampered - especially when you are getting your free jet lag massage.

There are no children allowed so it is quiet and peaceful.

You will feel welcome from the moment you arrive. First they ask your name and then what you would like to drink - my kind of welcome!

The rooms were lovely and spacious - we had a view of the Caribbean. I don't think there are many that don't.

No matter what you needed, the Ambassadors were there ready and willing to help.

I cannot wait to go back!!!

Thank you so very much Joanna and her superb team of Ambassadors for a wonderful holiday. This was our second visit to "The House" and it just gets better.

The hotel is a perfect, small, peaceful haven - (no children!) dramatic flaming torches at the entrance and then a really friendly welcome. Also a relaxing massage (discreetly on the beach) but not a spa hotel.

We loved our ocean view room - huge, comfortable bed and pillows, amazing sea view and spotless bathroom with a great shower.

Delicious breakfasts (perfectly cooked eggs) champagne, fresh fruit - a great start to the day.

We were delighted to find a new light lunch menu - and then tasty tea - beautifully produced on individual trays.

Great dining at Daphne's and also a jolly cookery demonstration from one of their chefs during the week.

Also enjoyed Scarletts opposite - American style restaurant - really lively and tasty food.

We love Barbados and especially love "The House." - a perfect, totally relaxing holiday. Thank you all SO much.
