Recent guest reviews
I met my daughter here who lives in USA for a her 30th birthday. We had a wonderful time. Staff were very attentive and helpful. I asked for Champagne and flowers to be put in our room while we were out one day (which they had to order in) and when we got back yo our they had displayed them beautifully. When we went for dinner they had decorated the table especially for her birthday. They made her feel special. Food was very tasty and plenty of choice.. Bar staff were helpful and remembered our drinks lol.. we would definitely go back here. Its a 2 minute walk from the beautiful pebbles beach where you can hire sunbeds and umbrellas for the day. Also you will find Sam the man who does guided island tours which are brilliant. You can walk along the beach into Bridgtown, about 20 min walk, much nicer than the road way.. !! So much I can say but most of all the people are very friendly..
We would like to start by saying that whilst the hotel staff work extremely hard and are delightful characters, they cannot be accountable for the lack of money being invested in the upkeep and maintenance of this hotel. On arrival, only one door key card was issued and though we asked for a second one, it never materialised. This was very frustrating keep having to ask my husband for the key card. My absolute bug bearer is lack of internet! Every time I wanted to use the internet, I had to sit in reception to get a decent signal and this was one of the hot spots for being bitten by mosquito's! All I did was itch and scratch! There was no air conditioning available or overhead fans to cool the area so I just dripped sweat onto the floor! In this day and age, there is no excuse for not having internet throughout the whole complex. The traffic of guests convening in the hotel lobby, morning, afternoon and evening to check emails, book excursions, check in online, many professional people who still have to manage business affairs whilst on holiday is unacceptable. Internet is available in the adjoining bar area, but once again many guests had their heads buried in their mobile devices for long periods of time whilst the local mosquito's feasted on ankles and legs! Not once did we see the hotel being fumigated for Mosquito's. Drinks measurements are all over the place, only being served 1/2pint lager at a time with 1/4 pint being froth! Wine was served in a 125ml glass so it looked like we were drinking much more than we usually do because of having to ask for 2 drinks instead of 1! We had a room right by the pool but it really lacked natural light. Bathroom cleanliness wasn't great, but this was reflected more on the maintenance side ie. mouldy silicone around the bath and the tap in the bath fell off every time we used it! The paintwork is in desperate need of attention and our air conditioning didn't work. After asking 4 times for it to be looked at, finally an engineer came and repaired it. It was so hot at night that we put wet towels in a fridge we had asked to be put in our room, so we could cool down and try to sleep! The pool is small and only really any good for a quick cool off. There were only 3 parasols for use by the pool, not enough for the sun beds... as you can imagine, it was very hot!! The entertainment is very low key , we felt some music in the bar would have much improved the ambiance, sometimes it felt like we were in a library! With regards to having lunch and supper.... having to give a time going in for breakfast, what time we wanted lunch and dinner became a nuisance. One waitress blocked my path into breakfast one morning insisting I gave times to her! Breakfast does not start until 7.30am. We had two very early starts so had to miss breakfast because it was unavailable before then. We noticed that other guests were irritated by this as well. When we walked past the Radisson Hotel on Pebbles Beach, breakfast was in full swing at 7am! On a positive note, the location is right by Pebbles Beach and is quaint and characteristic. Don't miss a quick bite at Cuz's Fish and Cheese Burger bar in the Pebbles Beach car park. A morning swim before breakfast is a must... white sand, blue water, tropical fish and turtles swimming around you and as warm as a heated pool! Early morning about 6.30am, you can hear the race horses walk past the hotel on their way to their morning swim. Get up early, this is not to be missed. Walking into Bridgetown on the beach is beautiful , and the bus drivers are incredibly helpful. We took a day trip to the sister hotel Mango Bay in Holetown for a change of scenery and it was gorgeous! This hotel just needs TLC and it would be fabulous.
The hotel was clean and tidy and the staff helpful . There was a lack of entertament only 3 nights out of 7 no activities and the set menu daily was very limiting . I also had to select my eating times for the day at breakfast . It was a lovely holiday but the lack of snacks throughout the day at the bar and only a sandwich for afternoon tea I found daily going out to eat . :( the pool area needed some tlc . The rooms where nice lovely air con and cleaned daily just needed some finishing touches aand the place could be a gem
We had 2 weeks here from the 12th October, the hotel has a small friendly feel to it, it’s success is down to its amazing staff , who are all there to make sure you get the most out of your holiday , The food is really good quality and varied ( I am gluten free and managed fine!) and Ricia and Angela and Annette were fabulous . The drinks and all the bar staff are lovely , and Earl, Dane and Hasani mix fabulous cocktails. The pool is small and only really any good for a quick cool off, we didn’t sit around it as there is a lot of greenery and we were badly bitten, on that point, I would say the reception area , the bar and pool all seem to be mosquito hot spots! We stayed in room 4 on the back side of the hotel, the problem with this room is you can hear everything in room 5 due to an poorly fit connecting door!!! We were very lucky that it was only occupied a few days during our stay, or I think we would have asked to move. The weather wasn’t kind during our stay, so seating in the dry areas can be in short supply, the entertainment is very low key , we sometimes felt a little music in the bar or restaurant would have improved the ambiance , The location is really close to Pebbles Beach and Carlisle Bay , walking into Bridgetown on the beach is beautiful , Barbados is generally safe and all the bus drivers are incredibly helpful, do take a trip to the sister hotel Mango Bay for a day out and change of scenery, it’s at Holetown - which has very nice shops !
Hotel exceptional, rooms and all areas spotless, hot water 24/7 and the food was excellent at all times, different each day for the fortnight we stayed. The staff were all friendly no problem , even the manageress dancing late at nights ! Bar staff were a bit slow but this was down to them having to multitask around the hotel , in the kitchen, collecting glasses etc but have perfected the Bob Marley shot due to our input lol. It is in a nice position with a nice beach around the corner literally, if you are up early in the morning you will see the race horses in the sea and the monkeys in the hotel grounds. Go to the beach about 5 ish youll see the turtles close to the beach and you can swim with them no need for any trips . Only problem is no sun loungers have to hire either at beach or hotel and also no all inclusive drinks etc as your out of hotel. All in it is a very nice hotel kept in the old Garrison style with brick paved paths , cool rooms and a small pool ,ideal for the price Bridgetown 15 mins walk up the beach, trip around Kensington Oval if you are a cricket fan or plenty of shops and eateries to go at even still got a Woolworths . Thanks to all the staff .
Great little hotel next to one of the best beaches on the island small informal and lovely would defiantly stay again ! food was exhaling with the warm welcome! Great for sightseeing in Bridgetown and the staff even gave me a memonto of our stay,a pot of the spice that they season the delightful fish dishes that they made !
The standard room was above our expectations; big, with great decor. Although it really lacked natural night. Room cleanliness wasn't great, when we arrived the bathroom was full of drippy marks and stains, which didn't leave for the duration of our stay. On the brilliant Wednesday night management cocktail party, you could not escape the loud DJ with his cheesy music and vibrating the floor bassy amp, if you wished to leave the party before 11pm, don't expect to sleep. The manager dances the whole night in a full suit in the heat, so kudos to her! - She knows how to party! Having a three course meal almost every night was so luxurious if you eat fish or meat. Unfortunately I'm vegetarian, and despite emailing weeks before arrival and being reassured there would be veggie options, we still had to notify reception 3 times further throughout the holiday. Dinner was great, but after 2 weeks of cheese sandwiches and chips being the only option for lunch, I didn't feel great at all. I feel really disappointed by this, especially after being told they would cater for my dietary requirements. Having the picnic option was lovely for day trips out, but again, cheese sandwiches only. The waitresses are so sweet, in particular the young 18 year old girl, who refused to make cocktails, but who had to run the bar on our very last night. She was super lovely to us the entire trip. I feel it was amazing of her to take up the role of bartender with no experience. We just wish we could have had one last evening cocktail before heading home. Talking of cocktails, Hasiani was incredible and so welcoming, he would made drinks off of the menu to make sure you we're happy - if you're a mojito lover I recommend him! Location is awesome. 30 min walk to bridgetown or a short bus journey. Pebbles beach on the door step and the glorious harbour lights extravaganza night a short walk away is a must! Mosquitos are a real issue, returned home looking like mr.blobby. Other wildlife is great, the cheeky birds at lunch / dinner and the notorious hotel cat made us laugh throughout the stay. Overall we really really enjoyed your stay at the Island Inn and would recommend it to friends and family back home.
We stayed here for a week. Our room overlooked the garden. Monkeys appeared most days as well as the odd humming bird. Very clean, air conditioned and a good size with a walk in wardrobe. Cleaners came in daily. Staff were very polite. The food we thought was exceptional standard for such a small place doing all inclusive. Breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choices. 3 course Lunch and dinner was mainly served to you, again in our opinion plenty of choice. From this hotel it's a 2 min walk to Pebbles beach ( no pebbles ) gorgeous smooth sand. Excellent snorkelling. 2 beds and an umbrella US $20 a day. Go early around 6am and the racehorses are out swimming. Walk past the Hilton on the left and there is a board walk to Rockley beach. Took us an hour each way. Plenty of seats en route. Turn right on the beach and under the pier to Carlisle bay. You can walk along the beach, direct into Bridgetown, around 20 mins. Bus stops are on the main road, 2 mins from hotel. We took the small reggae buses, such fun and an experience not yo miss, well worth it US$1 a trip. Tips.... take some deat mossy spray and use morning, noon and night, it was very humid when we were there, a lot of guests got bites, we didn't. Plus Take flip flops to get to and from the bar and restaurant as when it rains the paths at the hotel get flooded. All in All this was a brilliant hotel and if we get the chance we will be back.
We stayed here for 10 days in early September. The hotel is clean and staff very helpful. Rooms are kept clean daily. The food is gorgeous. Buffet style for breakfast and sometimes lunch but mainly set menu with several choices. Always plenty to drink and eat. It was my daughters birthday and i had asked for reception to order me flowers and champagne to be put on our room, which they did discreetly and quickly.I would defiantly stay here again.. Very close to the gorgeous Pebbles Beach, a minutes walk away..
Stayed here as a couple for 9 days in September. Had a lovely room near the pool in the garden area which is full of plants and trees stunning. The staff are all friendly and very helpful. The food is all cooked fresh and served to you only Breakfast is buffet style. Wednesday night there is a BBQ and the pork ribs were really delicious. The dining room has open terrace and is particularly lovely all illuminated at night. There is a wonderful quiet beach called Pebbles Beach 2 minutes walk from the front door. A morning swim before breakfast is a must white sand; blue water ;and so warm . And hardly anyone else about felt like paradise. On Sunday morning the local race horses come to the sea to swim about 6 30 am don't miss seeing this. We hired a taxi to go to the Botanical gardens in Bathsheba . Dwight from the Raddison Hotel a lovely guy who does not try to rip you off. We would recommend him They is a lovely walk along a board walk the other side of the Hilton Hotel that takes you to Rockley Beach and which is stunning. On the far end of this beach there is a Restaurant called Champers with wonderful seating area with sea views. This Hotel has all the ingredients for a lovely restful break in beautiful surroundings and is very good value. In the words of someone famous (can't think who )we will be back !!!!
