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.
I spent a short vacation there with my wife. I must confess that it was the most quiet and relaxing vacation I have ever experienced. The location of this facility is a few minutes' walk from the beach, yet away from the main road - hence away from the noise of traffic. The Front desk staff, Renee, in particular was extremely courteous and helpful. The nearby eateries, provided a variety of excellent meals. Additionally, there are several malls located withing close walking distance of the Inn. The cost was very affordable. I would go back to the Pirate's Inn and I would recommend it to anyone for a pleasant stay in Barbados.
Room good, clean and large ground floor. Staff mostly very friendly. Bar not open when required, sun beds are in the shade from around 4, so would be a nice time to have a drink from the bar, this does not open while 6. Although advertised on website and in handbook that bar open earlier. Restaurant not open at all after breakfast. But advertised again in both places that it was. The bar ok you can live with, but when we had booked a hotel that our disabled friend and her husband could order food all through the day, and then find that this was not the case, for us no problem we can find something/ somewhere to have lunch, but it was not that easy for them. Getting around in a wheelchair is quite difficult in Barbados. We would not have come here if we had known this, so please update your details so that it does not spoil someone else's holiday. Such a shame, because it is a lovely budget hotel, if you just require somewhere to sleep.
Stayed only 1 night prior to a cruise but the Pirate's Inn was comfortable and clean. Check in was swift and we were told we'd been assigned the owners suite - nice large ground floor room with enormous double bed, bathroom with dressing room, plenty of storage space, fridge, coffee maker etc. There is a smallish pool with loungers but why bother when the lovely beach and a nice Boardwalk is just a few minutes away. A/C was reliable and fairly quiet as we ran it all night without any problems. Friendly staff were happy to arrange a taxi transfer to the port the next day.
Just stayed at the Pirates Inn for 2 weeks recently . The hotel is in a good location , near to amenities , supermarkets etc . The rooms are spacious and clean . Ours had a huge bed ! Kitchenette is fine for those who want to cook . Rooms are usually cleaned daily by the excellent housekeeping staff but on a couple of occasions we told them not to bother as it was 6.30/7.00pm . Just had clean towels . Some days they seem to be struggling to get all forms done . Renee is a lovely , charming lady , always has time to chat to you as do her staff . Not so enamoured with the barman/ breakfast chef who hardly ever smiled or spoke ! Seemed to be fine with the regulars who go back year after year to the Pirates though ! In the brochure in the rooms it said the bar and restaurant were open . The bar until 11pm . However after breakfast which was from 7.30 to 12 , the bar shut and didn't open until 6pm then shut again at 9pm . So no food or drink available from 12 to 6pm at the hotel . No reason given . Found it very strange as they lost a lot of custom during this period to the bar just down the road . Food not available from midday right through . Enjoyed our stay though , as I've said most of staff very nice and helpful . Would I stay there again ? Probably as the location is good and rooms spacious and clean . Ours was on ground floor and straight out onto pool which was cleaned daily . Lots of people have been going back to the Pirates for years and years so must be doing things right for them .
We booked to stay at Pirates Inn for one night before we flew home from Barbados.I made the reservation around 6 months before arrival,and as we had a late flight home to UK, the hotel appealed as they offered late check out for an additional 50USD. We arrived around 7pm on a Thursday night after the usual delayed LIAT flight from St Vincent. I'd noted that England cricket team were playing a one day game on the Island and it was obviously very busy. We'd just paid the taxi driver when the desk clerk emerged and said ominously 'don't let him leave'. There was then a slightly garbled message which translated as "we have no room for you so are sending you to another hotel, which is better'. (They also confirmed that the new hotel were aware of the late check out request and "that's all still fine". When we arrived they denied agreeing to that so we had to check out at midday.) There was no real explanation as to why this had happened though they said they'd tried to contact me by email (none received). My guess was that with lower/mid range rooms at a premium with lots of cricket fans seeking accommodation , the hotel had decided to 'bump' our one night stay for someone prepared to stay longer. We therefore got back in the taxi and headed to Infinity Resort (see separate review) Slightly annoying after a long day of travel but I guess business in business...
