Needed a hotel at short notice on an unscheduled visit and ended up here on a chance recommendation. It proved a perfect base for several of us for a good week or so. Not too many locals seem to realise that you can stay at the Pom Marine as it is part of a college catering faculty and none the worse for that. The rooms are not glitzy but very comfortable, clean and pleasant with all the essentials well covered. Balcony, internet, safe, good size TV, bath and decent shower etc.The facilities are good and service professional, attentive and very friendly.
The location is a short walk from a fabulous beach and Blakeys on the Boardwalk bar (which is a definite plus) at the end of the access road as well as some excellent restaurants too such as Tapas and Nahru for a change of scene. The location is very tranquil but not remote being set back from the main coast road and a couple of miles south of central Bridgetown. My only gripe is that I didn't get chance to use the lovely pool. I make the observation that except on gourmet nights the hotel is not a vibrant social hub (not necessarily a bad thing).
Very good value and a very happy comfortable stay. Thank you all at Pom Marine, you do a terrific job and your kindness to my family was appreciated.
