"Great place for rest and relaxation!"
Great 4 night stay. Small hotel so the beach was quiet and relaxing. Beach was one of the nicest on the island. Staff very helpful. Only downfall is no real options for restaurants at the hotel but great places are a taxi ride away.

"Good enough"
The hotel is good but not great and for a four star hotel the menu had on to much junk food e.g (fry) and when I reach the room was not ready which Is quite normal but when I went to eat by the beach I was not impress with the setting, I had to order through a window and the drinks came the same time with food and not before . in other words for a 3 star hotel I was not impress

"Ok Hotel, Nice Beach, Great People"
I went mid February with my 14 year old son. CONS: The pool is very small. The food at the hotel was much pricier than I expected. ($17.50 for a cheeseburger and fries!) The food also takes FOREVER to get to you after you order it. Everything comes with french fries and all the fish is fried which I found very disappointing. PROS: The people are very nice. The beach is beautiful. Powdery white sand and clear blue water. You can easily take a "bus" to an area with restaurants although the place I loved the most was a little shack, between the Radisson and the Hilton called "Lefties". Fried fish with egg and cheese for breakfast! Its an island thing and it works. There were lots of families with little kids around. I believe the Hilton had more teenagers.

"The room that wasn't there."
We never saw the rooms as the they oversold the hotel and gave our rooms away to other customers. We were transferred to a Mariott Courtyard where we were assured the rooms were comparable to what we booked by the Raddison hotel manager. Our ocean view room turned into a city street view and was priced at a lower rate than the one we booked at the Raddison. Their facilities did not compare at all to the ones listed on the Raddison's website and the location was a block from the beach. We tried to call the Raddison hotel manager that convinced us to transfer over upon our arrival at the Marriott, but he was "busy" and never returned our call. Overall, I would say we were extremely disappointed with this somewhat deceptive process and would NOT try to book this property again. Good thing we were heading to another destination the next day. We had to enter a rating to submit this review and to be fair I can't really rate staff, facilities and rooms because we were never exposed so I entered a 1 even though these items were not ever evaluated by us.

"Comfortable hotel, but nothing fancy."
The fact that it is on the beach helps. Comfortable but few renovations needed to make it more up to date and to justify the per night rate. Older hotel and rooms have the stale smell. Overall it was a good experience.

"Good One Night Stay After A Cruise"
My husband and I arrived 2-hours early for check-in. Others had been waiting for their room for a couple of hours. The hotel was very busy and crowded especially since it was during a weekend (Sunday). More people were coming in than were leaving. (Turn-over, I believe it is called.). About 30 mins. after the "official" check-in time, I asked again if our room was ready. The process was completed with the assistence of Liana Griffith, assistant manger. She not only saw that we got a room with a great view, but also complimentery dinners. She placed our order into the restaurant. We had a great dinner thanks to Liana.

"Three days of bliss"
My husband and I stay at the Radisson for 3 days prior to our yearly time share elsewhere on the island. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The staff is just awesome, very friendly and helpful. It's right on the bay where the water is crystal clear and calm, great for snorkeling. It's only minutes from Bridgetown if you want to do a little shopping. I highly recommend the Radisson on Barbados for your next visit.

"Nice beach and hotel"
Beach and water wonderful, clean, location nice , not easy walking distance to much if you are looking for that. No ATM machines in the hotel so come with cash for cabs, tips and small purchases. WiFi was excellent for everywhere in the hotel. If you are there on a Sunday around 8 AM, I was told it is a regular occurrence.. many horses ( maybe as many as 10-15. I lost count) came with their handlers, they swam, cooled off and it was fun to watch!

We were very happy with the staff- they could not be more relaxed, kind, and helpful! The beach area it is in is so pretty, and quiet, calm waters. We paddle boarded off the beach with a nearby water sport shop. Oh, be sure to catch the horses from the track that come swim/ exercise in the mornings:) Lovely. We definitely will be back. The room is a roomy, views are great of the bay, very clean.

"Nice Hotel on a Great Beach"
The hotel was very nice. The staff is very accommodating in a laid back manner. The beach (Brown's Beach) was excellent, clean and very swimmable. The hotel supplied beach chairs and towels and we enjoyed ourselves. The rooms are clean and pretty up-to-date with all of the expected conveniences. The only downsides was that the air conditioner is very loud and though each room has a very nice balcony, it was difficult to leave the doors open since insects or birds could come in. The food at the hotel was mediocre, but there are other options within a block or so. PS, Barbados, as with other island, has chickengunya, a disease spread by mosquitos, so don't for to bring plenty of insect repellent.

"Great proximity to the beach"
I arrived in the evening and had to leave by 4am in the morning for an early flight. At first, I was a bit disappointed by the distance from the airport (~30 minute car ride). I wanted to get a decent hotel room right near to the airport, and this was further than I intended, which meant that I had to get up much earlier to make my flight. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the room, room service, personal balcony, the sounds of the nearby ocean waves, and the spectacular view. I stayed here one night, but I wished I had more time to explore the other amenities, and actually check out the beach!

The hotel was located in a nice area and the hotel staff is great. Even before my arrival they helped me to schedule a driver to pick me up and he was great. I used his taxi services for the rest of the trip. The food was ok but even when they made a mistake with my order, they went above and beyond to make right. At dinner they did not have the wine I ordered and without me saying anything, they sent me a glass of a different bottle on the house. They were very friendly and I would recommend the hotel

"Comfortable hotel close to Bridgetown"
The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and I appreciated the ocean view and view of Cartisle beach which is beautiful. The room itself could have been better if the room was carpeted (the tiled floor was quite cold when the AC was on); there was no running hot water and the AC unit was noisey. I had breakfast by room service and was quite let down - orange juice was not fresh but instead a powder mix. Overall the breakfast was not worth USD$24. The restaurant on site was very limited so ended up at the Brown Sugar Restaurant which is short walk away and would fully recommend eating there. I have stayed at other Radisson properties and must say that aside from the front deask staff (no complaints there) this one did not match the standard experienced at other properties.

"Great Beach, but Bad Hotel"
Other than the front desk staff, the service at the Radisson is really poor. The rooms are below average and the pool is very small. The real attraction here is the beach. It's calm, clean, shallow and perfect for kids. This was our second time in Barbados and I think Carlisle Beach is probably the best beach I've seen on Barbados. Unfortunately, the Radisson is substandard. I would not recommend it.

The hotel sits on Carlisle Bay- the nicest beach in Brbdos. Swim out to see the turtles and several shipwrecks teeming with fish. Walk right outside to catch the #11 bus either into Bridgetown or out to St. Lawrence Gap/ Oistens or the many shops and eateries out Hastings Main Road. Alas, the rooms leave a lot to be desired- the A/C in our room was very loud and our toilet broke one night and was unable to be fixed until the next morning.

The staff in the hotel was so wonderful and warm. The treated us like we were celebrities. Even though the Hotel structure was great the beach is unsurpassable. The sand, the reasonable waves, the gradual slope of the beach and the very refreshing water was wonderful. We loved the beach so much that we spent little time at the pool. race The horses from the track come down to the beach every morning to exercise in the water. If you love animals this was a real treat. Lawrence Gap was a lot of fun.

"Affordable and FANTASTIC hotel!"
Amazing room with double balconies on two sections of the wall! Had an ocean view one balcony and a beach view on the other. Breakfast buffet was good but tends to be expensive at $25/person but typical for a resort. Would have preferred a more varied menu for dinner/lunch and unfortunately there aren't really any restaurants nearby without taking a cab. Staff friendly and helpful. They also hosted a happy hour with free cocktails on our stay Monday evening. Not much need to leave the hotel. We spent most of our day at the beach and in the water. They have activities which will pick you up and drop you off. But if you prefer to stay at the hotel, they also do have surfing, paddleboard, and jet ski options. Prices came out cheaper than most other large resorts. Not big on luxury amenities such as spa, massages, etc. but a wonderful place to relax and hang out on the beach.
