Great location and good service

Everything about this hotel were great. Location wise it will take 15min to get to any leisure place. Staffs were very kind. Private beach was very comfy and quite. Only thing tjat concerned me was the pricey food menus. Breakfast buffet costs about 30 us dollars per person. And lunch costs about 20-25 us dollars with okay taste. I would recommend to have meal outside hotel. Otherwise, it was very pleasure experience.

Wonderful Hotel

I was very impressed with the hotel - totally renovated and very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful - beyond any expectations. They even left a special treat in my room after learning it was my birthday! Beautiful beach right outside - can't ask for a better location. Very happy, all around.

Slow Season?

So the hotel is not really a resort. It is a hotel. They have a "restaurant" which is on the pier that is is way over priced. The restaurant has 2 menus. The staff will hand you the "regular" menu which is their attempt at asain fusion. But, if you simply ask, then they will give you a "snack menu" that has a totally different flavor but is still over priced. If you are hoping to get a King bed, then you will want to call the hotel directly. The beach is absolutely incredible! Do not bother with the beach at the Hilton. Carlisle Bay has some of the best sand in the Carribean. Just be sure to bring your own snorkel and fins so that you can swim with the sea turtles on your own. Not sure if it was the slow season or what, but the hotel did not have many other ammenities available that you would expect to find at a resort. AGAIN, this is not a resort. But the location, incredibly friendly staff, and picturesk beach makes this a good choice.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you do not mind walking, the beach will actually lead you right into Bridgetown. (About a 2 mile walk.) If you walk, then you will end up seeing a lot of stuff that you would otherwise miss traveling the short distance on highway 7. (For instance there is a FANTASTIC Jamaican Bakery close to the Chicken Barn which is about 2 blocks away from Downtown. Lobster Alive Restaurant is alright, but if you end up skipping this then you would not be missing anything...go for the local fish first! If you can avoid taking taxis, then I recommend that. EVERYTHING IS MORE EXPENSIVE. But if you catch a local bus for one dollar per person, then you can get around just as quick as you would have to wait for a taxi. About 1 city block you will be able to catch the bus which is a white "van." THE BUS WILL TAKE YOU TO OISTINS!!!! Oistins fish market is open every night, so be sure to go more than once besides Friday night. Also the dinners at Oistons will typically run you $15 to $20 US. Cuz's Sandwich shop is right next to the hotel. Yes, it is a shack. Yes, the food is good. Yes, the food is quick and NOT EXPERNSIVE. Finally, if you walk into Bridgetown you will see the downtown bus terminal accross from indepence square. But if you go to the foot brigde then you might be able to see the sailing boats in the canal. #El Tigre offers a great 5 hour snorkel trip.# But if you walk along the boardwalk about a mile, then you will run into the next bus terminal. Catch a bus #labeled Sturges# for a dollar, and it will take you to Harrison Cave. It is about a 30 minute ride. Welchman Gully is "close" to Harrison Cave, about 2 miles. But you might be able to see monkeys in the wild. Bajans are very friendly and helpful, so never be afraid to ask someone for directions or assistance!

fun in the sun

living in new york city, my friends & i were not used to the slow-chill tempo of the people in barbados -- basically, the wait time for everything is LONG compared to everything in NY. but that's just a lifestyle difference.. other than that little adjustment we had to do, i can't help but rave about the location of the hotel. it's just absolutely amazing! the water is sparkling, i mean SPARKLING, clean - especially when the sun is out and shining, you see all shades of blue in one view. the sun rises around 5:30am and if you wake up early enough, you can see people bathing horses in the water. when we checked in, they gave us complimentary rum punch or fruit punch ( i had rum punch which was strong! ). however, the down-side was that for some reason, they made us wait TWO hours to go up to our rooms because they were not ready yet.. I still don't know what happened but the manager gave us the top floor room that gave us the view of the whole ocean and 5 complimentary drink cards. During the two hour wait, we went out to the water and tanned. Water activities can be easily accessible here. There is a place where you can rent paddle-board, boats, & kayaks right on the water. the paddle board is for an hour and we did so around 4;50pm since the sun sets around 5;30pm-- views were amazing. If you get hungry, you can literally walk a few minutes over to a local stand that sells the most amazing fish burgers. depending on the day and time, the wait can be very long as there is only one person who works there. I'm very happy about our decision on NOT staying at an all-inclusive hotel or else we wouldn't have been able to experience all the delicious food outside of the resort! The elevators failed to work the 2 days out of 5 we stayed there. I don't know what was up with that but there were people fixing the elevators. What else? house cleaning always comes during the evening around 6;30pm and hands out hershey's chocolate =) As for breakfast, we had free breakfast at the hotel which ran from 5:30AM to 10:30AM. I recommend getting the omelettes. The breath-taking view of the ocean while we ate could not get any better. Overall, the hotel was very nice for the price. by the way, i researched the weather in barbados before coming and was worried since it is technically end of hurricane season.... wow, i worried for no reason. the weather was beauuuutiful! seriously, the sun was HOT the first 2 days. the 3rd day it did rain for a bit but after like 10 minutes, the sun was out and about again .. really strong. i strongly recommend traveling during this time (early november).
