Beach View

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were very pleased with Beach View, Paynes Bay. The suite was spacious, clean and well stocked with everything you could need for a relaxing stay away from home. Air conditioning and ceiling fans were available for relief for the heat. Great pool area and access to the beach is just a short walk across the street. The street is very busy but as long as you watch the flow of traffic you won't be disappointed. I would certainly stay at Beach View again and recommend it to loved ones and friends. The manager, Robert works extremely hard. We saw him busy early in the morning and throughout the day making sure the grounds were maintained. The staff were all very courteous and helpful. Truly a Bajan gem.

The daughter of the owner is very friendly and helpful. The rest of the staff is less so. The cook at the tiny restaurant are not friendly. The view of the sea is nice. The location is OK. It took us time to find the beach (ask for it).

Beautiful, clean, cozy, quiet and just across from the beach and buses in and out of town. The best hometown quaint restaurants. Great for inexpensive local cuisine. Staff at hotel are attentive and helpful. Rooms are apartment like and lovely. Excellent property. You can rent a car or property manager will find you an on call taxi guide. Me and my lovie had a absolutely wonderful time.

The hotel far exceeded our expectations. We loved the property. The suite was well equipped, very spacious with a large balcony. The staff was quite friendly.

We were met at the airport by a driver which Carrie arranged for us , which was wonderful. Robin met us there as we arrived and showed us our from and how everything worked. Our apartment ( condo) was clean and well equipped. This place was fine, clean, and Robin & Carrie were fabulous. We LOVED going to Robin( the owner ) house for cocktails on Thursdsy night , that was fabulous!!!!! We really liked the place. I just had an issue witht the busy road in front. We walked plenty up and down to restaurants and ice cream but trying to relax at pool hearing street noise was a little bothersome . Other than that , Robin and staff can't do enough for you , they answer the emails immediately and the coctail party was so Lovely. This is a great value and a great island.

The staff was very friendly, and Informative. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. Nice and spacious rooms. to sum it all up a home away from home tucked in paradise.

We just returned from 5 nights at Beach View and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The apartments are beautifully appointed and the kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishware/cooking utensils you could need. Additionally, the location was great -- you're just a bit out "of the thick of it" from Holetown but still close enough to walk to a few great restaurants or drive a couple kms to Holetown.

A spacious, comfy 2 bedroom suite with 2 bathrooms, a lovely living/lounge room, good kitchen with everything you may need, even a washer/dryer. Friendly, helpful staff. Good location: 5 min walk to the beach, several restaurants, gas station.

The hotel set up was just what we were looking for. Three bedrooms/2 baths. We were a party of 4 ladies and there were 2 king rooms and 1 Room with twin beds. The kitchen had all the utensils you needed to prepare a home cooked meal. Eating out in Barbados can be very expensive so it was great that we could make a simple breakfast or lunch. Public transport was only 200 feet away but be aware of the private owned vans ( unless you enjoy riding a roller coaster). The beach view hotel is lovely and I would highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed at the Beach View last week and we have nothing but positive things to say about our time spent there. The condo was beautiful and very clean. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was great as the beach was right there. I would certainly recommend the Beach View should you be visiting Paynes Bay, Barbados.

We loved our stay. Everything was as described. We were upgraded to a beach view upon arrival. The staff was extremely helpful, the hotel was more like a condo than a hotel, very clean. The beach and coral reef are 60 seconds from the hotel gate. All sorts of snorkeling equipment, chairs, umbrellas, etc were free for the taking. Excellent experience.

My wife and I chose Beach View because it offered what we wanted most from our stay in Barbados--at a very reasonable price. We were even happier with the hotel than we expected. For our week in Barbados we wanted very comfortable and tasteful accommodations, with a beautiful view and within walking distance of a great beach and good restaurants. We didn't need to be right on the beach or to have restaurant service at the hotel. At Beach View we got everything we expected and more. Our third-floor suite was huge--and very well furnished and decorated. It had a big sunroom overlooking the Caribbean off the living room and a cozy balcony off the bedroom. The views were spectacular--including a turquoise sea in the mornings, shimmering waters in the afternoons and gorgeous sunsets. The kitchen was well equipped, and we used it for simple breakfasts and several other meals that enabled us to justify splurging on more fine restaurant meals than we would have if we had had to eat out for every meal. (Our most memorable meal was at the Cariba restaurant, a very short walk from Beach View.) Having to cross the road to get to the beach was a negative, but the beach was very nice, especially a few hundred feet to the north where condos and hotels front directly on the beach and the road seems miles away. The pool at Beach View is not very exciting, but since we much prefer beaches, we didn't mind or even use the pool. And we didn't need or miss a hotel lobby or hotel bar. But we did find Beach View was a good base location from which to explore the island.

Great stay. Excellent staff. The hotel is fronting a dramatic sunset every night, It is a great value for location, friendliness of the staff, and size of the apartment

There are many very positive reviews written about this condo and the all proved to be true. The rooms are clean and adequately equipped, the service is prompt. The location of the hotel is somewhat away from the beach, but if you mind walking, rent a car.

The condos were lovely with fully equiped kitchen and maid service every day, but the staff goes way out of their way to help you with reservations, ideas and suggestions. The manager even has a cocktail party at his "Cliff House" with transportation to and from for any guests that sign up. This house is amazing.

Our time at the Beach View was tranquil. The entire facility is kept well. Everything is provided for you, all the cooking utensils, dryer and washer, etc. This makes you feel at home in a very peaceful atmosphere. By bus its very accessible, but renting a car is a good option, just be cautious with the roads and driving regulations. I think overall the island is beautiful,the people, the beaches, the food, but to much mosquitoes and everyone one including the government should address this problem.

This hotel was in a great location, just 5 mins from Holetown and 20 mins to Bridgetown by local bus. It was spotless and spacious! The rooms were exactly as described on their website and even better in person. The pool was also very clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff were extremely accommodating, knowledgeable, friendly and always had a smile for you.

The staff at Beachview were excellent! [...] went out of her way to make our island stay eventful!The grounds are very relaxing and well taken care of. Felt very secure during our stay. We were on the go all week! Submarine, catamaran, Off roading, eating and enjoying some quiet time at the pool.

Clean, roomy, well maintained. Beutiful view of the Caribbean. Very nice pool, very nice people running the place. A few things that would have mad it a little nicer: -more network stations on TV in stead of all those cable channels (only had ABC). -TV in the bedroom.

A/C only in bedroom This "hotel" is really unsold condos. NOT on the beach side (as photo would suggest) of busy road Terrible choice of TV programming for any North American Every trip entails use of taxi, except service/convenience store down the street No recreational activities
