We enjoyed our four day stay. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere and the staff are helpful and pleasant. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the pool. The room was quite spacious and well equipped with a good selection of cooking equipment, fridge etc. It might be useful to now there were no consumables provided (e.g Shampoo, washing up liquid etc.) The balcony was nice to use and well worth having. There is a bar but no restaurant in the hotel, but a good breakfast is available and they could order-in food for you in the evening. There are plenty of restaurants available within easy walking distance, as is the beach. The pool is a good size and pleasant to swim in.
Pirate's Inn is a wonderful small hotel, with extremely friendly staff. The apartments are clean, well-presented with excellent kitchen facilities, including a large fridge/freezer, and a good amount of drawers, cupboards and hanging space. As well as the TV our apartment also had a Bluetooth radio so we could play our own music. There is small pool with plenty of sun loungers. It is well sheltered and quiet. The Boardwalk is just across the road so it is easy to walk along to Accra Beach without having to navigate the somewhat erratic pavements. There are several excellent restaurants and bars within easy reach and a supermarket practically next door at The Lanterns. This is our fourth visit to Barbados and our second to Pirates Inn; of the three hotels we have stayed in, this is definitely our favourite, and it is very reasonably priced offering excellent value.
Pirates inn is a quiet spot with a great staff. All the staff , from front desk to the bar to the maintenance and cleaning staff,are very friendly and always willing to help or just have a conversation. The rooms are nice and clean. Thanks Nadia for the great tip today..
We absolutely loved this hotel , the location is fantastic and the rooms were so clean and fresh. Nice pool and very helpful staff. You turn right out of the hotel to the end of the road and cross over at KFC to bring you on to the boardwalk and the stunning beaches. There is a petrol station and an Imart for essentials right by the hotel. Nadia on reception was an excellent help for anything we needed and we would definitely go back. Cost from the airport was around 37 BBD and around 15 mins by taxi. It may not look like a palace from the outside but rooms are excellent and ours had cooker,fridge,crockery, cutlery,toaster and pretty much anything you will need ( I'm not too sure if all rooms do). If you need anything there then just ask and they will be happy to help 😀
A friend and I stayed 9 nights at this inn and we enjoyed it greatly. We asked for a room upstairs with 2 twin beds, it was quite roomy, with a well equipped kitchen and a nice bathroom. The location is great, off the main road to the capital, but with in walking distance of the beach and boardwalk, restaurants and a convenience store. The staff was very helpful. We had breakfast and picnic sandwiches prepared for us. This was my 2nd stay in the inn and I hope to come back another time. As ladies in our 70s, we felt very safe there.
Could not fault my stay here. Fantastic for the price. Massive room with fridge-freezer and kitchen with everything you need. Great bathroom and excellent Air Con. Location is ideal. Go left on the main road for The Gap and go right for Bridgetown and beyond. Breakfast was very nice and relaxing. Check in and out very smooth. This is a great place to stay with the beach about a 3 minute walk away.
The room was very clean and neat ..didn't like the fact that there were two single beds pushed together...and also there were hairs on the sheets 😕😕😕my guy and i also had to keep on going downstairs just to get wifi(they must really have that checked) ..despite that everything was great ..walking distance to the beach and plaza and other food places ..staff was really nice especially the Jamaican lady 😊
Stayed at Pirates Inn for 4 nights from Saturday. Its more like apartments so the room has living amenities including a refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster oven, they also provide you with pots and pans, cutlery etc. Basically everything you would use in your kitchen at home. The nightly rate was very good being that you are provided with wares etc. It is about 10 mins away from Bridgetown. There's a mall right in the gap with food courts, convenience stores etc. Accra beach is 7 mins walking away, there's a mini mart as well as the popular Chefette's about 10 mins walking away. There's also a KFC right in the gap open until 2 am on weekends. You can also find a bar and grill in the gap. They light breakfast and lunch which you have to pay extra for, but being that everything was in close proximity, I cooked in the room and ate out. There's a small pool and the property is pretty cozy and quiet. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The bar only stayed open til 9pm, not many choices, but like I said there's everything that you need right outside. Staff were very welcoming and I'd definitely stay again.
Apartment Style Hotel. The room was spacious consisting of two single beds pushed together, a dinning table suitable for 4 seating, small table/ lamp stands on either side of the beds plus a dressing table with large mirror. A large wardrobe with full length mirrors on the doors, the wardrobe contained a small safe which was suitable for wallets passports phone etc. The bathroom contained the toilet, shower, wash basin and mirror with sockets for shaving. The room was clean and serviced each day. Certain parts of the room did look a bit tired. The hotel was located in Hastings just a three minute walk from both a wonderful beach and a small shopping area. The shopping area contained a small super market and and a few fast food restaurants all are good value. The coast road runs past the shopping area which as I said before is three minutes from the hotel on this road you can catch one of the many buses which race along to many destinations including Bridgetown (Broad St.) Oistins (Fish Market) and Speightstown. Each bus ride cost $2 BBD per trip (£0.76p or $1US ) a taxi ride cost from $40 - $60BBD. All buses cost the same although the small buses (12 seaters) might end up with 18 passengers in them so its gets a little cramped, better to jump on the big blue buses.
Flight This was our eighth trip to Barbados our second time staying for a month. We flew to Toronto on Jan. 29th in the afternoon arriving on time. We stayed at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, Toronto Airport, for the first time. Not being use to shuttle services offered by the hotels as we usually stay at the Sheraton Gateway, were they are not needed, I would suggest that Pearson Airport could post the times that all the shuttles leave the airport by the pickup door as they are set times because the pickup location is across one lane of traffic where you had to stand in a unheated shelter for a length of time. When the shuttle arrived it was nice and warm. We were the last stop on the run which gave us time to warm up. The Fairfield is a nice hotel and since we were only staying for one night we did have time to check out the whole hotel. Our room was a good size with a king size bed, couch, mini fridge and TV. The bathroom was also nice but the shower did block up when I was showering which was no problem. We ate our supper and had a couple of cold ones and I had the complimentary breakfast the next day both meals where good. We flew WestJet this year as I don’t like Terminal 1. The shuttle from the hotel was busy as a family of 13 going to the DR was on with us plus another couple of people but it didn’t seem crowded. If we plan to go through Pearson next year instead of Montreal or Ogdensburg NY and if the Sheraton is overpriced again I wouldn’t mind staying at Fairfield again. Arriving in Barbados We landed early which is always great but before you land there is some paperwork to do in Barbados. We filled out the form on both sides while the flight attendant was telling everybody you didn’t have to which some people had to do when they got into line. This was the second year in a row we went through Customs and Immigration and also receiving our luggage went so quickly. When we went out to meet our ride she was nowhere to be found (my fault) so we took a cab to Pirates Inn. Pirate’s Inn This is the sixth time for us staying at Pirate’s Inn. It is a small complex consisting of 22 one bedroom Apartments and Studios with the front staff of Janet, Nadia and manager Renée and Kenny taking great care of you. The resort also has a small pool, which was pretty busy some of the time. The area surrounding the pool is cork type flooring, which is nice to walk on. The restaurant is connected to the pool area. The area surrounding the pool and restaurant was always well maintained. Our Room Check in was quick, we didn’t have to wait long as Nadia took care of everything. It includes one key which can be dropped off at the front desk before you leave the resort. Our room was number 75, our usual room now, which is an end unit on the ground floor beside the pool. It had a flat screen TV, King sized bed which we got lost in and a kitchenette. The room did have a room safe which is always nice. Also included in the room was a bistro set on the patio which we promptly moved into the room and moved one of the plastic patio chairs to the patio (they still need another table for the room). As usual the room was always kept immaculate by Nadia and her staff which sometimes needed the assistance of the maintenance staff. If any problems with the room pops up Germaine was there to fix the problem. Outings The location of Pirate’s Inn is excellent as you are within walking distance to a variety of restaurants, Accra/Rockley Beach, Lanterns Mall which includes a variety of specialty shops, IMart (where we picked up all our daily needs), RBC Bank (where we did all of our banking) and the South Coast Boardwalk. In the opposite direction is Wine World where we picked up all our beer for the room. We walked the Boardwalk and Accra/Rockley beach every day (3.5 miles aver.). I pushed it one day and paid for it so for the next few days I did half the walk and Sandy completed it. The walk to the Hilton and back to the Tiki Bar is possible and I would recommend anybody who is able to do it, do it, It is a long and nice stretch of beach. After our walk we would go back to the hotel pool for a rest and to keep cool in the afternoons. Sandy’s birthday always happens while we are in Barbados and this year we had planned to go on the Calabaza again, but because we had a big crowd going this year, we needed two boats, so we ended up going the day after her birthday. As usual the Calabaza crew did a fantastic job at feeding us, while meeting my dietary concerns (Gina is a sweetheart) and giving us liquid nourishments when needed, also entertaining us at the same time with camera in hand. We will return next year. We did one other Catamaran tour. Friends of ours at Pirate’s Inn always did a tour with Cool Runnings so this year we decided to join them. There were 19 of us from Pirate’s Inn going. It was a bigger boat with more people aboard which didn’t seem crowded, the music and food was great, they kept the Banks flowing, we will return next year. Because of my Heart problems we developed our safe zone and didn’t wander out of it the past years but this year I wanted to try different things. We still haven’t made it to Oistins fish market and probably never will but we did make it to Browne’s Beach, Carlisle bay and walked along the beach till we hit Pirate’s Cove and grabbed two lounges and sat in the sun for most of the afternoon. I went up to the beach bar to inquire about a couple of cold pops and was surprised they didn’t sell Banks but ended up purchasing a couple of Polar’s which wasn’t bad but it wasn’t Banks. Restaurants I ate all my breakfasts at the Pirate’s Inn, consisting of a fruit bowl, toast and coffee or poached, scrambled eggs, toast, coffee and most of the time with chicken sausages. The restaurant is staffed by Tony and Marlin. The restaurant food, variety and service were good. Couple of times ended our night there with a nightcap. Their Happy Hour is from 6-7pm. The restaurant is no longer open for supper and the bar is only open until 9:00 pm so you have to eat supper in a establishment outside of Pirate’s Inn which there are plenty of, or make it in your room. Pirates Inn had one theme night on a Wednesday while we were there, I heard the food was great. We went to Shakers four times while we where in Barbados. Most of the times I had the steak and grilled potatoes and each time the steak just melted in my mouth. Sandy had the catch of the day with grilled potatoes and loved it. We visited Blakey’s for their Happy Hour most nights which is down the boardwalk from Pirate’s Inn. Bartenders Richelle, Alex and Steve, with Roger serving us, gave us friendly quick service with a smile and a chuckle, all under the managerial eyes of Steve. It’s always great to make new friends here. Hopefully we see everybody next year. There was great music playing in the background it made it an enjoyable time. Their Happy Hour is from 5-6pm. Banks Beer was $4 BDS. South 7 Bar and Grill is just steps from Pirates Inn so it was a close stumble back home. Anthony, Kevin, Shawn, Sheena and Ryan (aka Mufasa) gave us great service and lots of laughs. We made new friends here too, hopefully we see them next year. We ate most of our suppers here because most of their meals come with a side which completes the meal. Their Happy Hour is from 5-7pm, Banks Beer was 2 for $6 BDS. Bert’s bar was also an establishment that we went to once for a game against the Jets with both of us all dressed up in our Sens gear which didn’t help as we lost. Sandy had their Fish Cakes and Mac pie while I devoured my hamburger and salad. Their Happy Hour is from 4:30-6pm. We did stop at Infinity on the Beach one to check the place out and to hit there Happy Hour, nice place different clientele then at Pirate's will be back next year to try their supper menu Medical Services This is the fifth year in a row that no medical services were needed but it is good to know they are there. Flight Home Check out was at noon and we left our bags in our room till Margaret arrived. We sat at one of the tables surrounding the pool and enjoyed a couple of Banks. Margaret was right on time as usual, Final Statement Well this was another great trip to Pirate’s Inn and Barbados with great service from Westjet . We went for 30 days this year and are already booked for another month next year. Still haven’t decided whether through Toronto, Montreal or Ogdensburg.
