"Barbados Hospitality at its Best!"
Quanit and charming hotel and staff. Perfect location- right on the beach. No hassle, simple but clean and very comfortable. Excellent breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First Trip to Barbados"
The overall experience at this resort was very pleasant. The staff were very accomidating. Extremely easy and quick cab service. We even took the local bus one day down into Bridgetown. The daily breakfast was great, used restaurant once for dinner and was not disappointed. Prices were average and food was actually pretty good. The rum punch here is […] awesome!!! Best I've ever had. Nothing like what you get pre-bottled. Pool and gym were kind of small which I didn't use. Hotel is right on the beach, and has a pretty nice outdoor lounge seating area in addition to plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas. Booked round trip airport transportation to and from hotel through expedia this service was helpful and driver was very friendly and professional. The only thing is most food places in the area are only open until 3:30 which is quite common in the caribbean so only options are hotel restaurant or a place called "Brown Sugar" which we didn't get to try. Overall very nice hotel and experience would definitely go back!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel by the beach, great view of beach"
Overall experience is good. Friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
All good, great views, but need to be able to get drinking water for the room - only option is at the bar at almost 4$ for small bottle. Everything else was great, especially quality of the wifi connection even on the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very beautiful hotel."
I spend 4 nights there. I love everything about this hotel staff was great, breakfast to die for. I have nothing bad to report. I will go again.Genuine Expedia guest review
My husband and I visited Barbados for our honeymoon and we were very pleased with our hotel stay. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. We had a beautiful view of the beach from our balcony. Everyone who worked there was helpful and friendly. The beach that the hotel is located on was by far our favorite beach we visited. The water is calm and crystal […] clear. The hotel provides chairs, umbrellas, and towels. There is a bar/restaurant just a few feet away called Dippers that we enjoyed wraps and rum punch from, it was delicious and great prices. There is also a stand that rents kayaks and stand up paddle boards (the owner and daughter were super nice). If/when we visit Barbados we will definitely stay here again! Thanks for an amazing week!

"FIrst time here"
I usually stay at the Hilton but I find this hotel to be better for me because it is smaller, you get to every place much faster. The beach, pool , rest .is all close. Front office staff was very warm and friendly. Made me feel very welcome. Will come back for sure!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful beach access"
Accomidations are not extravagant, but adequate. Staff was wonderful and the beach access was wonderful. I suggest paying a little extra and staying in beach view pool side rooms, not in the high rise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The employees were the best. They always had a smile on their face and always available to my every need. If they did not want to help, I would never have known. I felt very comfortable, safe and eager to come back! The shuttle pick up from the hotel was perfefct. The atmosphere was perfect. It was worth the money for me and my two chidren. The room […] was perfect, I had no problems. if u need a fridge just order it before ur arrival so it can be available. There was no need to spend tons of money on more expensive hotels, We were gone all day with excursions and beach activities and mainly used hotel foe sleep and dinner. Would definitely go again!

"Great get away and family hotel."
Very friendly staff and rooms were very comfortable. beautiful view and the beach is just magnificent. Very family oriented and accommodating. We arrived to a wonderful team of staff members (Mark the front desk manager and Nigel).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Love the beach"
Enjoyed Barbados. The staff were excellent and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great family getaway."
Our experience was great, the staff was great. I stayed at this hotel for over 20 years, when it was the Holiday Inn/Grand Barbados. I always love it there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our Best Hotel in Barbados"
This hotel has the perfect location, its on the beach, at nights we leave our windows open and listen to the crasing of the waves on the shore. We've been to the Hilton, Oceans 2, Te Crane but this is where we'll stay from now on.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best resort beach"
The Radisson Aquatica is very conveniently located. If you enjoy walking (despite the heat), it is a 25 minute walk to Bridgetown and a 15 minute walk to the boardwalk near some great restaurants (Tapas). It is also about a 15-20 minute taxi ride to St. Lawrence Gap. In addition to a warm, welcoming, and helpful staff, the hotel itself is situated on […] the best beach in our opinion. Carlisle Bay is beautiful and the soft white sands is great. The hotel provides towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas for your convenience. This beach never gets too crowded (Saturday and Sundays included), the water is pretty calm, even on the roughest of days, and there's not a rock to be found. Great place to stay.

"Close to beach and shopping"
The hotel was beautiful and clean. The hotel staff was wonderful and was prompt to assist when needed. They took time to make sure you had everything you needed and went the extra step to make sure your stay was the best. They provided service with a smile and were very professional, polite and courteous. I would highly recommend this hotel. The view […] from the room was beautiful.

"Nice hotel on the beach, recently renovated"
well situated on the beach in Carlisle Bay about 20 minute walk to downtown, adjacent to Yacht Club on one side and cruising club/paddle board rentals on the other. Great lobby and entry with view of pool, beach, and airy restaurant. Much smaller and quainter than the Hilton Hotel down the street near Needlam Point. Recently renovated - rooms are clean, […] freshly painted, with comfortable beds and linens. Each room has a view of the water/beach and balcony and good AC. Small convenience store and workout rooms were nice amenties. Service is slow but friendly (barbados time). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, quite and sit by the beautiful beach"
I stayed there from May 1 to May 5 for a conference at another hotel. I was even invited for their official opening. I guess the hotel lives up to the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
QUIET, TRANQUIL HOTEL ON THE BAY. GREAT FOOD! AND VERY NICE STAFFGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with nice service"
I travel for business, i stay in a lot of places, and this hotel did a very good job impresing me. The breakfast was great, the room was perfect, the staff was very polite. The free wifi worked very good and the breakfast wa very goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed my stay, remodeled hotel, dinners were good compared to other places on the outside, beach is rough at time but on the best bay on the island! Kids had a blast in the pool to beach. Close to everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A week of true Paradise for adults and a child"
Staff was friendly, attentive and accommodating. Very clean lobby and hotel. Great location. Nights are quite and calm. I love the oceanfront access. The restaurant extends out over the beach and ocean. Beautiful views and sound of the ocean as there are no windows. You can sit in the sun or a shady area while eating. Expensive menu and very small portions. […] Be sure you take extra fruit or muffins after you eat. For that reason alone I wish there was a kitchen area in the room. We had to request a refrigerator. It was quickly in our room that afternoon. Taxis are a must to get to St.Lawrence Gap but you can walk to Bridgetown, even from the beach. Would definitely stay next trip! Be sure you check the colored flags on the beach near the lifeguards. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Completely renovated hotel right in the middle of Carlisle Bay with snorkeling and wrecks right off the beach. Easy walk to the Hilton and water sports rentals. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance but many more on the Hastings Road just a short drive away. Flawless & fast internet throughout the hotel, large rooms & balconies (comfortable […] for our family of 4), great housekeeping & front desk staff, with dining & exercise rooms overlooking the beach. Would definitely stay again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Jewel in Barbados"
After reading reviews of several hotels on the south and west coasts, I settled on the Aquatica (formerly the Grand Barbados Beach Resort). Pay the little bit extra to have breakfast included in the room. This option is VERY WELL WORTH IT! In addition to the continental breakfast bar, which had a very large selection of items, we were also given the […] opportunity to order from the menu, which also had a very nice selection. The staff is lovely. I will return to the Aquatica the next time I visit Barbados. Don't forget to watch the race horses go for their morning swim right beside the hotel. Also, there is a place right beside the hotel where for $25 BDS you can have use of the kayaks and snorkeling equipment all day! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A great trip"
The people were extremely helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to make us feel at home.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just as good as the Hilton down the beach"
The hotel still has a long pier with a pavillion at the end that looks like a disaster hit it, which it did. But the rest of the hotel has been upgraded, refurbished and now looks very good. Elevators are not air conditioned, and seem in need of an update, but other than that the rest of the hotel has been completely redone. It is now comparable (in […] the rooms) to the hilton just down the beach which charges twice as much or more. It is a great hotel, close to downtown, right on Carlyle Bay, and certainly competitive on price for what you get. Restaurant was pricey, but so is the hilton. I would stay here again, especially if I had an event at the hilton, but did not want to pay anywhere near as much. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap but clean hotel - good for a weekend only"
Recently bought by Radisson and rebranded. Refurbishment been made and hotel is no frills but clean. Elevators need some upkeep but location by the beach is great and staff are friendly. OK for a weekend if you're not after pampering and don't want to eat where you stay. Would not want to stay a week here though as options are limited in the hotel. […] Rooms were clean although AC was crazily loud. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Renovation makes the hotel brand new"
Very good stay. I was there on business and the wifi was fast and available everywhere in hotel. The restaurant is built over the water. Awesome. The beach is beautiful and the pool (though small) is really nice. The renovations make the hotel new. I had a corner room with 2 balconies. Ask for this when you book.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Colorful & Gracious Beachfront Hotel"

"Nice hotel for honeymoon"
stayed here in sept 2014 for honeymoon it was very nice great hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel with a great view"
I stayed at the Radisson for a couple of days in august of 2014. The room was very clean and it had a great view of the beach. The food was OK but kind of expensive. There are restaurants not too far from the hotel that are much cheaper. Overall it was a great hotel and I would recommend it..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel, situated on the beach."
We received a warm welcome on arrival and throughout our stay the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, but a little expensive. We did however find alternative restaurants locally for our meals, which were reasonably priced. There was no nightlife at the hotel, but the close proximity to the beach and the clean and safe surroundings […] made it nice to have drinks in the outdoor areas at nighttime. Excellent local buses, well priced and regular. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lovely hotel, lovely view & beautiful beach!"
We spent the first week of May at the hotel and had a lovely time. The room was spacious and the oceanfront views (2 balconies) beautiful. The room was clean, but things weren't replenished every day...the toiletries were not replenished unless we left a note specifically asking for more, however if we met a maid in the hall they were more than willing […] to give us what we needed...perhaps it's hotel policy? The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you get a waterfront view make sure to be up between 6am and 7am to watch the horses from the racetrack cooling off in the water...very cool. The beach is lovely and lots of chairs are put out every morning. The location is very central and you can walk to various locations ...easy to catch the local buses/vans. We would definitely go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel overall. Excellent hotel."
The only major problem I had with this hotel was the lack of security. People not belonging to the hotel would go into the swimming pool area with their families take over beds and cause havoc in the pool. The security staff were informed but did not deal with it correctly. I realise this is only a minor problem but why should I pay for the facilities […] and not be in a position to use them especially when I was after a quiet stay. This also happened on the beach with people taking over beach beds. I don't normally make comments about my holidays away, but............!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful hotel & beautiful beach"
In Barbados for 10 days, 5 days were spent at the Radisson..... loved the hotel and the beach was to die for!! Staff were friendly, food excellent and the room was clean. Low season so the hotel was not full which meant no lineups and always had a great spot in the shade on the beach. Many thanks to the morning chef Margaret who treated us like family […] and always took care of us, she even made my wife and I sandwiches for the trip back home (which were delicious)!! Thanks also goes to the rest of the staff for making our stay enjoyable and fun. The Radisson hotel is a short commute from Bridgetown; the daring can walk the 20 minutes along the beach to get there or take a short bus ride. All in all a great hotel, beach and a wonderful location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel room excellent.(Get one with double balcony you won't be disappointed) Food good but lacked variation and bar needs to be made more comfortable. Something needs to be done to encourage guests to use the dinning room it was empty most evenings. Lacking in atmosphere. Overall a pleasant experience in what I would grade as a very good 3 star hotel. […] With a little entertainment in the evenings and more comfortable furnishings in the bar it would be 4 star.

"Excellent choice for a holiday destination!"
The beach here is unbelievable! The water is so turquoise, warm and very calm. When you stand in the water and look down at your feet, all you see is beautiful white sand! The beach is not busy and there are always lounge chairs and clean beach towels available to use. If you go to the right of the hotel, the walk along the beach is a nice, comfortable […] distance. It was very clean along the beach and we felt quite safe walking right to the end of the beach. We had two delicious dinners at the hotel. The breakfast buffet was pricey. The only complaint I had was, the morning we went to the breakfast buffet, I asked one of the servers for a coffee, while I waited for the rest of my family to come down for breakfast and the lady said "No Ma'am" and walked away from me. So I just went back to the room and made myself one there. Other than that, the service was always excellent. The rest of the staff were always very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good, functional hotel with an excellent beach"
We stayed in early March for a week and found the hotel to be as expected for a Radisson, a good standard but with few frills. Food and drinks prices were a little expensive, the pool was just for the kids, the gym was very good, and the beach was awesome.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel."
Had a lovely 3 night stay at the Radisson. Free fast WiFi and good location for Bridgetown.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed in hotel for nine nights in February 2014. We were really happy with the hotel. The hotel is in good condition with clean rooms. Just next to a good beach. We were not impressed with the food and ate mostly at the nearby Hilton. I also liked Cuzz the nearby fish shack. The Hilton is more luxurious but with windier beaches. Overall it's a good […] 4* star hotel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Needed an overnight hotel, and picked the Radisson. Lovely location, nice beach and close to Bridgetown. Has not been a Radisson for long. For what is supposed to be a top end hotel, the fittings were cheap and flimsy.Genuine Expedia guest review

Pleasant stay. Serious issues with the air conditioning which appeared old, cranky and exceptionally noisy. Staff did best to help. Otherwise nice hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
