This was my 4th stay in Barbados, and I must say I was very pleased with this hotel.
We booked a standard room (after all you don't spend much time in them!) and other reviews stated that these would be noisy on Kareoki night, the only night we had any disruption was on the Sunday eve, and it stopped by 0100 and it wasn't that bad anyway (we were watching TV at the time, and couldn't hear it!)
The food was the best i have experienced in the Caribbean...it concentrated on quality rather than quantity, although myself and my son have an healthy appetite and we were satisfied with it.
The pool and beach were lovely and there were always plenty of spare beds (the ones around the pool were heavy wooden beds with 3inch think mattresses!!), although if you wanted a parasol you had to get out early..ish for one (about 9am)
There were lots of mozzies about so take plenty of repellent, although that doesn't seem to do much good, but i would get a plug in one for the bedroom as the odd one gets in there also, a bit annoying when you think you are safe from them in there!
All the staff were great, I never saw any without a smile on their faces, no matter what the weather.
The only downside was the entertainment, although we chose this hotel thinking it was quiet, it was very quiet, there was literally a small band (which played very good music) but only background music whilst we ate, after that nothing...although there were places to go outside the hotel if you wanted to.
There was a recreation room where you could swap books and play games, and there was also a pc that you could browse the internet for free 24x7.
All in all, a great place to go to relax and rejuvenate the batteries....go there...you will be pleasantly surprised..
