This property provides good value compared to most any other decent hotel in Barbados, anything cheaper are questionable quality/cleanliness. Actually, cleanliness is a strong point of this property. Location is very good although 5 min. walk to excellent Maxwell Beach (in front of Turtle Beach and Sandals resorts) or 10 min. walk to Dover public beach, and 15 min. walk to the great restaurants at St. Lawrence gap. Rooms are spacious and functional. Also very quiet as walls are block rather than wood/drywall - absolutely no sound from neighbouring rooms.
TV channel choices are OK with some Spanish. Also includes Canadian CBC Toronto feed, what a great surprise since that is rare to see (outside of Bahamas/Turks & Caicos) anywhere in the world. There is the usual U.S. mainline networks, TNT, HGTV, BBC, about 4 sports channels; roughly 30 channels in total. TV is HD but cable feed is not.
Swimming pool is a bit small but serves the small number of rooms well. I had 3 peeves: (1) every morning just after 6, a lady is cleans/scrubs the pool deck with annoying noise, (2) every morning just after 9, housekeeping knocks and wakes/bothers occupants (a bit early for those wanting to sleep/eat/get ready while on vacation), (3) placed a white T-shirt on shower curtain rod to dry but I didn't notice it was all rusty so that was a mistake.
Otherwise - highly recommended as a value property.
