We were at the Studio apartement 306 for two nights. The room was bigh enough with a nice sea view veranda, as advertised. The bed was very large and comfortable. Sleeping quality was good. The nearby beach was beautiful. So far the positives. The front desk lady was cold as ice, no smile, not a word more than was necessary. The restaurant on the premises served average food at a high price and a very slow service. The room service took one hour to bring a sandwich. The toilet seat was damaged and could not be used. It was replaced later. The fridge was leaking so much water, that we had to use a towel from the bathroom. The wifi dropped constantly. They really have to work on service quality and on maintenance.
We had a one bedroom apartment at Blue Orchids Beach Hotel for 7 nights. The location is great, Carribean Sea is right outside. We had a patio with a view of the Carribean Sea. The rooms are clean and well maintained even through some elements are a little outdated. We had air conditioning and a fully equipped kitchen. It is quiet at night, only the Sea waves and the Barbados Whistling Frogs you can hear during the night, which is actually really nice. We booked this hotel through British Airways. The hotel staff was always smiling and ready to help. There is also a small swimming pool outside. There is a small lovely beach. There is also a restaurant and bar. We had breakfast there every morning and was really good. We had once also our lunch at the restaurant and was very good and the price was decent. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars in the proximity. A supermarket and a duty-free shop are located only a 3-4 minutes walk from Blue Orchids.
location perfect, near to 2 big supermarkets. self catering apartments. 15 min walk to saint Lawrence gap, quiet at night. quite expensive to eat out, we made our own breakfast and lunch. ate out every night on the strip. we were with another couple and hired a jeep and went all around the island in one day. we also went to grolsh street friday party, highly recommend really enjoyed. the beaches were powder white sands perfect. we were here sept 27 2014 only now getting around to writing. we booked with virgin what a bargain we had.
Great location wonderful staff beach is right at my finger tips close to some of the finest restaurants and close to grocery stores one can't go wrong with staying here at blue orchid hotel rooms are really breathe taking and ill be looking to stay here again pretty soon.
Hotel for the price is excellent. The rooms are clean and all of them come with a view of the Caribbean sea. Myself, girlfriend and daughter stayed in a deluxe studio. You get two big beds pushed together which would of give us more than enough room for the 3 of us to sleep on. A extra bed was provided for my daughter and even with this in the room we had plenty of space. The kitchen as all you will need, ( Cooker, fridge, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, kettle, ETC.) The bathroom is small but as both shower and bath. Their is loads of wardrobe space and draws. Now the rooms are a little dated but you should not mind that too much. All staff were very pleasant. The hotel as a small swimming pool and a lovely beach, sun loungers are provided and towels. There is a small restaurant and bar, (We did not use.)As there is plenty near to the hotel. Overall as I said for the price i can't see why anyone would be disappointed. And we would like to thank everyone for making us welcome.
Enjoyed our stay at the blue orchids. Handy being close to the airport. The room was just what we needed although a little cramped for 3 beds it did the job. We saved extra money by being able to prepare our own breakfast and some sandwiches at lunch and rum punches in the evening :) There is a fridge/freezer, cooker (which we didn't use) and a microwave. I took washing up liquid having read an earlier review although the cleaners do wash up for you but we preferred to do it. Everything you need close by. Safe area. Towels replaced when you need in the room and new beach towels available every day. There is a tri mart supermarket 5 mins walk along the road to the right or a smaller supermarket at the quayside shopping centre less than 5 mins to the left along the main Rd. Supermarkets v expensive but cheaper than eating out. Recommend just grillin for simple quick meal, LOVED bar cutters which is a good truck that is in the rockley beach car park Thursday - Sunday try the pulled pork cheese fries! Also loved doubles d'lish for a bargain lunch at the quayside centre which is directly behind just grillin. Bargain local rotis called doubles and bake saltfish (like a roll) Would definitely go back!
Great accommodation and beach at Worthing. Ideal for a base to experience the rest of the island and allow holiday makers to experience more of the bajan culture than they would at other larger resort hotels. Special mentions go to Suzanne and Chantelle on reception Chanel at Coral Mist, Stephen the resident taxi driver, Reggie who is great at advising on trips and tours on the island, Paul and the wonderful security guards. We would have no hesitation in recommending Blue Orchids. Good luck with your renovations this year and we hope to visit you again in the future!
It had almost 1/2 mile of fairly nice beach. The far end can be hard to walk except at low tide. Blue Orchid is at the best end of the beach for water access, as the middle has a rocky ledge to get over. A 2 min walk up the street gets you to another beach which is really a bunch of smaller beaches connected by a boardwalk. Although much of the boardwalk is buried in sand so it's not as easy of a walk as it sounds. Our favorite restaurant, Tiki was on this beach. We liked it for the atmosphere being right on the beach and swimsuit friendly, more so than the food. But the food we had was good. There are also several other dining options within a few minutes’ walk of the hotel. Ground floor room in back was nice. It had plenty of room, with a kitchen. I could see rooms closer to the road getting traffic noise. All we had was frog noise. I find a bunch of frogs relaxing, but 1 frog outside the bathroom window can be a little annoying. But you forget it’s there pretty quick. Parking is limited at the hotel. I always found a spot, but not by much. A small car helped. Given it's off season, I'm guessing it would be even harder at peak occupancy. The same goes for the beach and pool chairs. Most days there was at least one chair available at any time, but would be tight with a full hotel. The chair/umbrella guy was good. A second hotel, Coral Mist shares the beach chairs and parking. Although both hotels have a pool and separate reception desk, which is odd in that the architecture and buildings look to be the same. The restaurant is in Coral Mist, but the game room is in Blue Orchid. I did not get around to finding the exercise room. Dining was busy at breakfast, less so at lunch, and we rarely saw people eating in the evening. They did have a bar also. The beach at Carlisle bay was the nicest to walk on. It was about 1.5 miles long, as long as you can duck under the pier at Ramada. The public beach is very popular with the locals at dawn they came in fairly large numbers to swim and walk the beach.
Stayed for a few days this month. The location was ideal for food, groceries, transportation options and beach. The waves were rough everyday I was there. You can hear the waves all day and night front the room which is soothing to me. I enjoyed having breakfast on the private balcony. On my last day, there was a turtle swimming directly in front of my room for hours. The hotel was small and easy to get around not like big resorts. I saw security walking around the property all the time which made me feel safe. Staff is friendly enough when approached but don't bother you otherwise. We had a studio apartment which was a decent size for two of us. We only used the kitchen for the microwave and refrigerator. It looked kind of old and dingy. They provided limited pots and cooking utensils. They did not provide napkins or dish soap which was kind of annoying cause we didn't have time to go to the store as soon as we got there to buy some. Our room lacked hand towel racks which was kind of inconvenient. The restroom was somewhat small and dingy. The parking lot is small. If you can get past some minor imperfections, you'll like it here. There's a pool, a game room and the adjoining hotel has a restaurant and exercise room that is available to us too.
Spent a wonderful 2 weeks here in early April. Great location on the beach, 2 pools and within walking distance of supermarkets and other shops. Self catering studio apartment had everything you need, lovely view of the sea from the balcony. Rooms are serviced every day and beach towels are provided free of charge. The staff are all friendly and welcoming. The restaurant could get a little busy at times but the waitresses were always polite and friendly. We took a taxi tour of the island to see the east coast, Bathsheba beach is stunning. The Boatyard is a short taxi ride away with turtle boat tours and other attractions. Managers cocktail event is a nice touch with Bajan nibbles and music, would like to see it last a little longer than 2 hours. Had a lovely holiday with family and definitely will be visiting again.
