We ended our stay in Barbados here having checked out early from our previous hotel due to issues. This is a beautiful boutique hotel with lovely accommodation and a perfect restaurant attached - the Fish Pot. The only negative was the traffic noise starting around 6am, they like to sound their horns in Barbados! We really love peace and quiet and are used to undisturbed sleep at home. The positives are numerous. The accommodation was excellent. Beautiful bathroom and bedroom with lovely balcony and listening to the tree frogs with a rum and coke before an excellent dinner at the Fish Pot was a perfect evening. The main pool was quiet and often we were the only ones using it - perfect. The beach whilst small was ideal, and running to the end of the jetty and diving into ten sea was a treat! Having been to Barbados a number of times, this is now the place for us for future visits. Not cheap, but quality in Barbados never is...
It's important to note that I'm not particularly picky when it comes to hotels and simply ask that things are clean when I arrive and that sheets are changed regularly. This all definitely happened, so no complaints there. I should also note that someone else paid for my stay, so it wouldn't be fair for me to make an assessment based on cost, however, what I can say is that I was perfectly satisfied with almost everything about this hotel in the context of other vacations I've taken with one very minor exception: some of the exercise equipment in the gym is in dire need of replacing, the bike especially, although during my 2 week stay I think I encountered one other person in the gym, so it's probably not a priority. Aside from that, I can't think of a single criticism to level at this place. There are very friendly, professional staff working at Little Good Harbour. Because of the setup of the hotel, it has a friendly, intimate atmosphere and you will have the opportunity to get to know the people looking after you during your stay. The beach house we stayed in was basically open plan in that the main room comprised the living room and kitchen with a door each side leading to double bedrooms featuring en-suite bathrooms. One entrance had a "back door" feel to it, while the other main door opened onto the veranda, which held another sitting area and dining table. The kitchen area featured a fridge, freezer (keep them stocked with liquids and fresh fruit at all times!), cooker, oven, microwave and toaster. All worked fine during my stay. I rarely used the "living room" area, choosing instead to lounge in the cooler bedroom or on the veranda, sharing my company with the local, incredibly bold finches. I must take a moment to advise you to remember to use insect repellent if you're hanging around outside for any significant period of time, because the mosquitoes on this island aren't messing around. My bedroom was perfect in that it was clean, had a spacious walk-in shower, a toilet and basin, an area to hang and fold clothes, an electric outlet each side of the bed and a door that opened straight out onto the veranda. Very important to note that the air-conditioning was so efficient that I only needed to use it for about half an hour when returning to my room after any extended period of time and it would become into a refreshingly cool fridge. I also had access to high speed internet for the duration of my stay. Leaving the house, the area within the hotel felt like an exclusive neighbourhood, with heavy vegetation lining the paths and surrounding the houses adding to the feeling of privacy and seclusion. There was a small pool next to our house which I didn't use, but the larger pool further up the property's hill was lovely for just jumping into. (I wouldn't recommend it for getting laps in because a) I was able to complete a length in about 5 strokes and b) there's a vast flat sea literally right across the road!) The hotel is in a fantastic location. This part of the island is pretty isolated and because it's on the West coast, the sea is crystal clear and calm as a lake with a gentle current. What that means quite simply is that there are no crowds on a beach where I'd expect there to be plenty. I spent hours just lazing in the sea, letting the current carry me out and then gently paddling back in. The sea traffic was minimal and aside from the very occasional sounds of islanders going about their business from the road and the soft lapping of water, it was a peace I just haven't experienced for years. It's truly something else. It's also a good place to go exploring from if you're using a hire vehicle, while the hotel will be able to advise on bus times if public transport is more your thing and a 30 minute walk to Speightstown does get you to a substantial bus station. It's not immediately relevant to this review, but since I mention it Speightstown is a lovely place and while not large, you should still familiarise yourself with it as it is where you'll be buying your supplies (Jordan's Supermarket), getting your hands on inexpensive but delicious food (Fisherman's Pub), sorting currency and a few other things you can discover for yourself. I realise now that I've gone on for quite a while and so I'm going to stop here. I'll simply finish by saying that Good Little Harbour's restaurant served exquisite food, that this hotel was a perfect home during my stay in Barbados and I would recommend it to anyone.
A real little gem. A relaxed dining experience with lovely staff and delicious food in a beautiful spot on the island. We took our children and they all loved it. You would need to book for dinner. Delicious cocktails!
We had another wonderful stay at the beginning of May. Four of us stayed in a two bedroom cottage with private en suites and another two stayed in a one bedroom cottage. We were all delighted with the accommodation and since last visit the one bedroom cottages have had their bathrooms updated so they are lovely and modern. We would spend many evenings after dinner sitting on our veranda with cold drinks from the fridge. All the staff were delightful and could not do enough for you. We ordered groceries for the fridge prior to arrival with Trevor. Their resident Taxi Driver, Victor, was so knowledgeable about the Island and such a lovely character and took us all over. We would ask the restaurant to call him when we were ready to leave and without fail he would arrive in the timescale quoted. Andrew the owner is very hands on and can often be seen multi tasking but however busy he is always had time for a chat. The pools are lovely, and the majority of the time we would have these to ourselves. The beach is small but perfect for snorkelling. There is a jetty with a roped off area for swimming. Beds and umbrellas are set out in the morning and there were always beds available. The property is just steps away from the fabulous Fishpot restaurant. We had lovely lunches and dinners here and the food is very good. Too many lovely dishes to choose from. The decking at the front of the restaurant has been extended and is a nice place to have a drink. There are some lovely bars and restaurants popping up in Speightstown which is a short ride on the local bus or taxi.
I have stayed in several hotels and all inclusive resorts in Barbados but Little Good Harbour is by far the best. Fabulous accomodation, very relaxed atmosphere, and excellent personal attention from Graham and Trevor, the managers. The Fishpot restaurant is superb and if you don't want to cook yourself or eat in the restaurant you can take the food back and sit and eat on your own terrace
We needed a proper break with peace and quiet, a place to ourselves, with easy access to the beach, the pool, and to just sit and read. The Little Good Harbour hotel is perfect. The two-bedroom cottage was very clean, smart, nicely designed with all the required facilities to be private. I particularly liked the Verandah, the walk-in shower and the vegetation and overall landscaping of the area. All the staff were attentive, responsive and friendly. Nothing was too big or small to sort out, whether booking a brunch at Atlantis (very worthwhile) or car hire etc. The private beach is immediately over the road and is quite beautiful and quiet. It was nice that although we met other couples and families everyone seemed to have the same goal of just relaxing and enjoying the peace. I have to put in a special word for the Fish Pot restaurant. Beautiful location and setting with excellent staff and service. The food is pricey but worth it for the quality. If you choose to stay go for the ‘continental breakfast’. The egg muffins are delicious and set us up for the day. I had it every day and felt fuelled up (unusual for a continental breakfast in my experience). The view over the sea and beach meant we spent at least a lazy hour over breakfast every day. We found the location good for driving out and about too and the pretty town of Speightstown (pronounced Spitestown) nearby offered shopping, fruit and vegetables and plenty of restaurants. Holetown just 15-20 minutes drive away is bigger and has more restaurants and supermarkets. We could get to Most attractions and sights within 30 to 45 minutes. You can hire a boat trip through Captain Dwayne and I believe there is a water taxi service in the peak season. We hired bikes and had Randy come up and give us a guided bike tour which was a highlight for us. Great place and ideal for what we wanted.
If you want a personal butler and bling go south!!! If you want smart-casual, relaxed but well looked after you're here. From the owner, Andrew to Manager, Graham to all the staff we were looked after like family friends. The Fish Pot restaurant is one of the best on the island. Rooms are 1, 2 & 3 bedroom so ideal for couples to families. There's a small sandy beach but it's never crowded or 2 pools and a spa. There's nothing much within walking distance but a few dollars taxi ride will get you into Speightstown with a choice of bars and restaurants. We've done all the bling palaces and much prefer the relaxed, family feel of LGH. See you next time!
We arrived too late for breakfast and too early for lunch, but booked for mid day and then swam in the crystal clear waters. Lunch was sublime, fantastic frersh fish, vibrant salad. Great Service Excellent Food Worth driving to this place
We (2 adults and 3 kids - 9, 9 and 5) spent 10 fantastic days at little good harbour over Easter 2018. The team at LGH very kindly upgraded us to a 3 bedroom villa. It had wonderful outdoor space to relax on the balcony and everyone had plenty of space indoors. The pool was well maintained. Great kitchen in the villa for self-catering and the amazing fish pot restaurant was just across the road where had 2 lovely dinner and a great lunch on our last day. A highlight was the Mahi Mahi but the Lobster came a close second. A rum punch for mum and dad at sun-down while the kids swam in the sea was also a regular feature of our trip. We will be back!
This hotel consists of a number semi detached cottages of 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms mostly with sea views and 2 pools. The Fishpot restaurant close by provides all meals and is right on the beach. We had a 1 bedroom cottage with views to the sea and very close to the Fishpot restaurant where we had the majority of our meals. The hotel staff were all very friendly and attentive. Rooms were clean and beds made up every day. Our cottage consisted of a downstairs living and kitchen area with terrace, and upstairs was the bedroom with balcony and separate shower room and toilet. The management were always in evidence helping out generally and the reception staff would always be available for booking taxis. This is in a quiet area on the north west coast of Barbados away from the hustle bustle of Bridgetown and surrounding areas. The hotel is about 10 minutes away from Speightstown, a local town with some shopping, a bank and some bars and restaurants. You can take a taxi or local bus.
