We split our stay between Silver Point and Bougainvillea because we wanted to have a mix of pool and beach. Bougainvillea was on a beautiful long beach and we could go for walks along the beach. Silver Point was a really beautiful, trendy boutique hotel with lovely lounges and a small (although fun with the kitesurfers) beach. We really couldn't complain about much, except the weather--it rained almost our entire stay.
The view is very nice, although this is not the area to stay in to see sunsets since it faces southeast. The neighborhood was a little intimidating, although it didn't seem dangerous. There wasn't much in walking distance though, so we took cabs a couple times. It's $10 into Oistins. We went to the Oistins Fish Fry and really enjoyed Bellamy's stand.
The pool area and day beds were really fantastic. Great for lying out in the sun (for the couple of hours we had) and it was only feet to the beach where we could go in the somewhat choppy water or watch the kite surfers. This isn't the most beautiful beach I've ever seen, and in general, I think Barbados' beaches are average for the Caribbean, but it was nice enough. I imagine this hotel would be perfect if the weather were good.
We had an ocean front studio with a private patio area so we could walk right out to the pool or beach. It was a really great room and totally worth the upgrade from the basic room. Very relaxing to hang out and read on the sofa or on the patio. Wireless was available on the patio as well.
The food in the restaurant was some of the best we had on the island (and certainly the best deal). In general, local food was all fried and we enjoyed eating some non-fried food. There are lots of very expensive restaurants in Barbados that probably have good food as well, but this was much more reasonable.
The service at the bar/restaurant was FANTASTIC. The ladies were so warm and friendly, helped answer any questions we had, and genuinely made the whole experience so much better. Richelle in particular made our stay so much fun!
The service at the front desk was a little less friendly and helpful, but we didn't really ask for much so it wasn't a problem.
