“Cant get any better.”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

Have just returned from Little Arches after 10 glorious nights. Where do I start, Firstly greeted by Nadia and Sandra who were both very friendly and helpful .( as were all the staff ) We were placed in room 6 which is Superb, with a bed that is difficult to leave as its so comfortable. The swimming pool is immediately outside the front door, I felt it was ours as hardly anybody used it. Everyday after the beach, a dip in the pool before getting ready for dinner was great. The enterprise beach ( Also known as Miami beach ) was a very short stroll ( 2 Mins ) down the road. And what a lovely beach it is, Plenty of shade ( natural under the trees ) And beach chairs brought to you by lovely Hendy. Ate dinner at Mr Delicious on the beach ( Trailer parked at far end ) always had the chickn Roti, Delicious if you like mild curry. Water was warm and inviting, Just like all the friendly locals. Ate at oistins 5 nights and 5 nights at Cafe lunar ( above the hotel ). Oistins is a must if you enjoy fish and a friendly atmosphere, The red snapper and Kingfish with either rice and peas or Macaroni are cooked to perfection and makes for a cheap enjoyable meal, about £10 english pounds with a bottle of Banks beer ( nice and cold. ) Uncle georges was the best along with Mammas which is immediately in front of it. Pats place had bad attitude and after complaining of a hair in meal i refused to pay, which at least they did not argue about. Cafe Luna was something else, superb food ( greek salad to start and then the best Bajan fish stew you will ever taste ) Big hello to SHANE the most helpful and attentive waiter you will ever meet, a great big smile always on his faceand always topping up your drink before you get a chance to do it yourself, If would make one point to pass on it would be to always buy a bottle of wine instead of paying by the glass as it does not get filled very high, i.e 3 glasses is equilivant to 1 bottle however you will get double their meausures buying a bottle. Just past Oitins (5 mins further) is a very large supermarket where you can purchase all fruit,food,beer, wine,etc. I coud go on all day heaping praise on Little Arches and its staff but suffice to say, We will be back. Especially because I need to claim the complimentary wine and cheese that i forgot to do. They are all so helpful in loaning bikes (free ) or arranging car hire. One last mention is the excellent choice of breakfast if included in your deal. Once again Sandra ( hope you got to Florida OK with the Isaac hurricane threatening your trip ) and nadia and all staff, THANK YOU FOR A GREAT HOLIDAY.

Room Tip: 5,6,7, all open out to the pool. 1 and 2 have their own plunge pool. some others have a small jacuzz...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights to celebrate our 7 years anniversary. We were researching different hotels and came across Little Arches. What caught our attention about the hotel that there are only 10 rooms and had a reputation of having excellent service. We booked a garden room for 3 nights and stayed at another hotel (Courtyard Marriott) for the rest of our trip.
The staff is awesome and accommodating! Their reputation for having the best service is well deserved. We were greeted by Sandra and Nadia when we checked in. We stayed in #4 Petite Mustique room, which happen to a split level suite. It was cozy, comfortable, and lovely. This room did not have a private Jacuzzi, plunge pool, or a balcony. There is plenty of outdoor space to lounge by the pool. Our front windows are sliding doors that have a view overlooking the fountain with the koi and the front of the hotel area. Even though we were situated at the front of the hotel, we hardly heard any noises and was very quiet most of the time. Our room is right off the reception area and stairs leading to Café Luna. We did not hear any noise outside our door because once you entered the room, there is small entry way and another door to pass through. The room included a mini fridge, safe in the closet, beach towels, and plenty of space and hangers for clothing.

We ate at Café Luna, a couple of times during our stay. We found the food delicious and took the advantage for dinner, the Back to Bajan Menu, 3 course menu for 79BDS. There is happy hour from 4-7. It was convenient to have a restaurant on site because the nearest place to eat was a 15 min walk to Oistins. The staff at Café Luna were awesome as well. They introduce themselves and made our dining experience much more wonderful. At Oistins, we ate at Annie’s, Pat’s Place and Uncle George’s. Also, tried Chefette’s fash food, order the roti. We did not have a car, so we relied on Café Luna and Oistins for our meals, which was enough for us. If you need to go for fancier dining if you will have to travel, so take a taxi or van buses.

The beach, Miami Beach is nearby and chairs will be brought there for you. Miami Beach is a beautiful beach! The beach side that is closer to the hotel has mini waves and has the beautiful views of the rocky landscapes and caves. There is a lifeguard station at the other side of the beach and that beach side has calmer waters. Miami Beach is such a great beach, we were there during the week and it is so quiet! Compared to other beaches, Miami Beach was truly the best. It is easy entry to the water as there are no rocks and it is smooth under your feet. During the afternoon, the school children and locals done with their work hang out at this beach. The beach is the one of the best reasons to choose this hotel.

The staff helped us arrange surfing lessons with Zed’s surfing adventures. Surfing was so much fun, I recommend Zed's. Also, did a couple's massage here at their spa room in the back garden. Prices are reasoanble. The spa treatments you will have to book in advance as they call massage therapists to come in. The couple's massage was great but the spa room is small. The room was warm but the windows were open and there are fans. We had an excellent stay at Little Arches. If you are looking for peace and quiet and not the large resort experience, this place is it. Also, the awesome staff made our stay memorable. I recommend Little Arches for a romantic vacation.

We stayed here for 7 days as part of our honeymoon and fell in love with Barbados - and the wonderful secret gem that is Little Arches! This boutique 10 bedroom hotel is ideal for couples looking for that beatiful romantic getaway. The staff couldn't have done enough for us...so friendly and personable, booked excursions for us, brought meals to our room whenever we asked and helped my husbad plan a day full of surprises for me for my birthday including having a maseuse and beauty therapist set up in the room and delivering flowers. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

The beach is just across the road and the hotel staff will arrange for sun loungers to be taken down to the beach and set up for you each morning.

We hired a car and drove around the Island - a MUST visit is Cherry Tree Hill - the view is incredible!

We had some amazing meals - Champers, Cafe Luna and Zen were my favourites.

This hotel is a must visit you will not be dissapointed.

It's only 10 rooms, each one different and #7 is one of the best . . . but what a completely perfect holiday experience, with our every whim and fancy taken care of with a smile, a kind word, and with efficiency that larger more well known hotels could take a lesson or two from. Cafe Luna, on the roof deck, serving three meals daily with the most flexible dining hours and with your choice of dining under the stars or under cover, is a magical experience capped with great service a diverse menu and a gourmet dining experience without being whacked upside the head with an outrageous check! We dined there several times during the week, why? Why not? The view, the food and service is unparalleled. The beach is across the street and a quick 100 yards walk (or they'll lend you a bike so you can ride, except by the time one gets up to speed to avoid falling off, you're already there!) Hendy will bring beach chairs for you and the hotel supplies the beach towels. The sand is soft and white as snow and the water with sandy bottom is about 83 degrees and turquoise clear! The beach is never crowded and there's always a spot to relax under the shade of fully grown trees. Sandy and Cherrise and the other ladies at the desk will arrange anything for you and are very knowledgeable about the island. The rooms are equipped with everything you could possibly need. What more can I say, but thanks Little Arches and to your exceptional team whose dedication is unsurpassed!

Don't tell anyone, but we're going back!

Thought long and hard before writing this review because we plan to return soon, and would like the rates to stay the same. With that being said, it may have been the best hotel experience we've ever had. We stayed in room 6 (Petite Nevis). It wasn't incredibly large, but had a little two-top table and a vanity with a chair. The bathroom is pretty small, but the shower is a good size (give the water a bout 90 seconds to get hot on the first day).
The staff is excellent. I'm fairly certain that there was a 1 to 1 staff/guest ratio during our entire stay. The staff will do anything for you. They set up excursions for us, brought breakfast to our room on days that we had early excursions, handled rental car arrangements, brought drinks out to the pool, everything. I saw a few earlier reviews about breakfast being sub-par. I'm not sure if the reviewers were very picky(We're not particularly high-maintenance travelers and get a kick out of people making a scene over something stupid) or if the staff worked on this, but our experience was fantastic. We stayed a week, so our stay included breakfast every day (recommended). We did our best to try everything on the menu. I personally liked everything except the Marlin bagel (not badly prepared, the sauce was just not really my thing). People who want to be close to touristy stuff may want to look elsewhere. Enterprise beach is more of a local spot (plus it’s only $1 US to get anywhere in the reggae van). We, however, couldn't have enjoyed it more. The locals are incredibly friendly. The hotel is a very short walk to Oistins. We love fresh seafood, so we ate there three of our seven nights. The staff may be required to tell you to take the "long way" to Oistins after dark, but we found that even the guys playing dominos in the dark alley at 2:00am were delightfully nice. We ate Café Luna twice, and it was pretty good (more on their page). In closing, we are real people that had a blast in Barbados. Feel free to message us if you have any questions. And if the staff is reading this, thanks so much again from John & Wendy (May 2012). We’ll see you again soon!! PS: Sorry about accidentally taking the room keys with us to the airport. It was nice of your guy to come grab them.

Our week spent at Little Arches Boutique Hotel in Christ Church, Barbados was AWESOME! Little Arches Hotel is a small luxury boutique hotel with only 10 rooms - making it quiet and romantic! We stayed in an ocean view suite with our own private pool! DIVINE! Dining at the rooftop restaurant - Cafe Luna - provided a magnificent ocean view and delicious food served by friendly and personable staff! The staff at the front desk were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. They did everything possible to make our stay memorable! The staff was helpful and arranged tours & taxi service and made dinner reservations for us. Miami Beach was beautiful and we loved having our own "cabana boy" to deliver and set up our lounge chairs on the beach each day! Impeccable service was provided daily by the staff at Little Arches! We can't wait to return to Barbados and Little Arches Boutique Hotel!

We spent ten nights in room 7. This is a lovely spacious room with views of the sea and pool deck. Wonderful hotel with people so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. If you get the chance, go on the Silver Moon trip it is not to be missed. Oistens fish fry on Fridays is an experience and try the roti's at 'Mr Delicious' on Enterprise beach! This beach is fabulous! Thanks to all at Little Arches for making our stay total relaxation. Lovely food at Cafe Luna. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
