We stayed for five days and requested an early check in never got a response but called the morning of check in only to be told no, waited till actual check in time at 3pm and still had to wait for the room to be ready. We had breakfast inclusive only to realize continental meant cereal, tea, toast, apples and bananas which wasn't specified to us so in order to get 'actual' breakfast eggs, sausage etc we had to pay extra which we did. Awkward moment of using the pool and it felt like all the staff came out to look at us maybe it was all in my head it just felt weird, pool also closes at 6pm which is really kinda early. One weird thing while my bf was showering the shower cut off, he was stuck soapy for a bit then he shut if off waited and it came back on. Besides the weird moment the staff at the restaurant were very friendly, on the last day we got the water problem again and had to call the front desk. Apparently when the pool is being filled it affects the water pressure all in all it was a nice stay just little things need to be fixed.
Our small family just returned from a great stay at Rockley Beach. The one-bedroom suites are much improved from our first stay about 5 years ago with a needed facelift that includes some new furniture, lovely decor and great quality appliances and cookware in the kitchen. Smoothies everyday made with the fruit from the vendor across the road in the Kitchen-Aid blender and cocktails of course. They have also upped their game with a better continental breakfast (included ) and a terrific Manager's reception on Thursday nights with great food, open -bar and wonderful live music. The Blue Horizon of the past was a great deal for a slightly quirky government hotel in a fantastic location and it is now a cost comparable hotel for the area.However you get a spacious apartment like room with a balcony ,helpful staff in a relaxed environment , and you are steps away from Rockley beach and many delicious restaurants. You can also grocery shop nearby and make your own snacks and meals- always good for between water sports. No crowds, no excessive noise, no hassles - just easy. That is worth the increase in rates to market value.
Situated at Rockley beach. Quiet unpretentious hotel. Stayed in a standard room, fairly basic but fine.Clean, plenty of space and comfy beds. The bathroom was basic but clean. The shower lacked power and unfortunately the water was often cool. Never sat by the pool as the beach is very close but this area was always kept spotless with adequate sun beds both in shade and sun. No children's pool. Breakfast was cereal, cake, toast and juice and in true Caribbean style not rushed. No real bar area but there are plenty of bars around and if planned correctly happy hour can continue from3.30 through until 10pm. The hotel is in a good location, staff are pleasant but if you are wanting 5 star luxury maybe this is not the hotel for you. However if you are wanting adequate, clean accommodation and you spend most of your time on the beach or visiting other places this would fit the bill fine.
I just arrived home from another wonderful Barbados vacation at the Blue Horizon Hotel. Dane, the Operations Manger, is to commended ! Through no fault of the hotel's, the water was unavailable for a few hours on the south coast of the island. His staff delivered water to each room to minimize the small inconvenience. Our stay was wonderful ! I'm already looking forward to next year !
The staff is courteous, attentive and helpful. The breakfast is quite satisfying. Hats off to the pastry chef the banana bread is the bomb! The croissant are great also. Fresh fruit is appreciated also.
The bad: Noisy on far side. We had no sleep. No hot or even warm water to shower. Front desk person wasn't overly welcoming. The good: A king size bed (rare thing in these parts) but very firm. Clean. They have washcloths. The location is superb.
It's a good location, directly opposite the beach. Bedrooms are accessible from outside like a motel. Be prepared to lug your case upstairs, no lifts. Front of house and accommodation staff werewere fantastic. Professional and experienced. The Restaurant is a separate contractor and it shows. The rudest staff I have encountered in a long time. Had to clear tables ourselves on a couple of mornings, continental breakfast was an apple/banana, fruit cake, toast, tea/coffee. An absolute disgrace. If you went at 8am or 10am and a section had run out it was not replenished.
The website doesnt give the hotel justice. A quiet calm hotel across from the beach. Plenty of local amenities for food etc. We stayed in A refurbished room & then a deluxe suite. Breakfast is the only negative - basic and slow & we expected more selection. Cooked breakfast is pricey & local picasso cafe is cheaper , however every other hotel would charge 30$ bbd for breakfast... Lovely aircon hotel reception & fresh water & orange juice all day when you come in from the beach or hot sun. On the bus routes too & rockley accra beach has showers & beach chairs to rent
There are two main areas to stay on the Island. The West Coast and the South Coast. The West Coast tends to be very expensive with many higher end options. The South Coast is my personal preference as it is more moderately priced and seems to have much more activity. The Blue Horizon is in the perfect location with great access to Rockley Beach and equal distance Bridgetown or Oistins. I was very happy with accommodations. Excellent view and great and welcoming service. I would suggest this is a very good moderate price option for traveling on a budget and will be definitely staying here on my next trip.
our second stay here ..but standards have dropped a lot......we got a high floor as requested over pool area..lovely..comfy bed and ..NO hot water..shower...luke warm at best.breakfast was a poor affair again and not cheap .coffee is awful...nice friendly young waitress though from last year..no more complimentary orange juice in reception.and cake.....think standards are dropping..shame cause this COULD be a brilliant hotel ..right opp A ccra beach and very central...do hope it ups its standards a bit ...
