"You don´t need to leave the hotel"
Nothing much to say, except to comment that reservations rates offered through the internet are complicated to be honored at check-in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I love this hotel - it's close to town and the beach is gorgeous - I love the canons at the fort, the view and sea breeze is to die for. Very romantic at night. Only drawback, the bed mattress hard like a rock but you're so tired from the beach that you just don't care.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great resort hotel right on the water"
Very nice hotel right next to beach with great view. Hotel pool was really nice and the grounds by the cannons are another nice feature. Only hotel with attached tennis courts that I am aware of which is a plus. The staff at the Hilton were tremendous. They really helped us out when our son hurt his knee. They had a doctor call us very quickly and a […] wheelchair available right away. The staff organizes nightly activities like Calypso dancers and live music almost every night. The beach at the Hilton is great for body surfing the waves close to the shore but do not swim out as the undertow and rocks can be dangerous. Walk a few minutes towards Bridgetown and you hit beaches that are good for swimming. The Lighthouse restaurant was really good. We ate there many times and were never disappointed. The all-you-can-eat brunch is a good value and was excellent. If you want to smoke a cigar, go to the grounds on the left by the beach, nice spot for that because smoking is not permitted anywhere else. Weather was great, sea breeze on Needham's Point keeps everything comfortable even when it is in the upper 80s. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Staff is extremely helpful and informative"
My journey to Barbados was based upon my desire to learn more about my grandmother's birthplace, as well as learn more about her mother ( my great grandmother). The staff , specifically Marlon the bell man, was wonderful. They advised me where to go to learn more about my history ( the Archives), pointed me in the right direction to find the lighthouse […] near where my grandmother was born, and arranged for a taxi driver who stayed with me through my entire quest. The driver, Winston ( wonderful person!) , even knocked on a few doors hoping that some of the more older/elderly members of the community might remember names and have information. Joy, who is a concierge, was fantastic! She made dinner reservations for me at Tapas. In addition, she was also interested in my quest, and gave me a few suggestions. Overall , the staff of the Hilton were great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, TERRIBLE beds!"
The hotel was clean and well maintained, with breathtaking views from the oceanfront balcony. My main complaint, was that the beds were extremely uncomfortable. Sleeping on the mattress was akin to sleeping on the floor, and our sleep was poorer as the week wore on, as we developed back pains from the rigidity of the mattress. The hotel is also located […] on Needham's Point, so swimming on the beach is not recommended (often red or yellow caution flags). To seek calmer waters, hotel goers often walk about 5-10 minutes to Carlisle Bay, or to the Boatyard. Hilton is largely removed from restaurants and nightlife within walking distance--each ride is at least a 10-15 USD taxi ride away, each way. Money was complicated, as many businesses operate on a 2 Barbados for 1 USD policy, inclusive of a 17% tax and 10% gratuity, but it was widely expected to tip additionally on top of the service charge. The Harrison Caves, Wildlife Sanctuary, Boatyard, and Calabaza yacht tour are not to be missed! A major sightseeing attraction is the Atlantis Submarine, but what they do not tell you when booking the submarine is that they will cancel the trip same-day if currents are are strong--unfortunately, they canceled our trip ONE HOUR before departure. Brown Sugar and Tapas are not to be missed, and the Boatyard is a good alternative for cheaper drinks and lunches (aka Margaritaville). The Hilton restaurants were pricey, and the quality of food was like an all-inclusive resort for big $$! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great vacation experience near beaches"
We have been to this hotel three times and each time we have a great time. This is the ideal vacation spot for families - good pool, beaches, safety and happy hour!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel, but some drawbacks"
The hotel is beautiful and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The concierge was especially helpful since this was our first trip to Barbados. The rooms were spacious and kept very clean. The restaurants were quite expensive, especially the breakfast buffet. The beach, though scenic, was too rough for swimming - most days the hotel had red […] flags displayed, meaning that swimming was prohibited. But the pools were very nice and the poolside bar was a great place to hang out. If you want to go to the beach, walk over to The Boatyard - the water is much calmer, there are some activities for the kids to try and the folks that run the place are very friendly.

"Great vacation overall."
Very clean, not crowded, tasty breakfast and dinner meals in the executive lunge. Definitely would go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An excellent choice in Barbados"
We stayed 6 days and I can honestly say it was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. The staff makes this hotel what it is. From Vanity at the front desk to the ladies in the executive lounge (especially Anika), and really every person we encountered, all we could think was that they are genuinely NICE and KIND. The hotel is showing a little […] wear but that is so easy to look past when you have such an enjoyable experience. The rooms are clean. The amount of sand we dragged in there daily would have me at my wits end, but when that room was cleaned, it was CLEAN. I cannot say enough good things about this property. We will have memories to cherish for a lifetime. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Loved the Hilton"
We arrived to find an unexpected surprise of a new Hilton of 9 years. We knew friends who stayed there many many years ago so we thought it was old. It is beautiful and we loved everything about, well almost everything. For me, they could put better quality mattresses in, its not pleasant waking up sore. Also there was no where to sit and by day 3 we […] did get our sitting chair with ottoman, not really a big deal but... it is our holiday. The view from our bay room was unbelievable, however on the 6th floor, exec floor, they have a solid balcony so I think they could use a tall bistro table so when you sit, you can see over. Staff are amazing Beach bar a little too expensive but quality food but pricy drinks, would have bought more. Pools clean and beautiful. Can't say enough about the place. It was a special birthday and I notified them, but nothing was acknowledged. We would go back in a heart beat! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is situated on a beautiful beach. Staff were pleasant. We stayed on the Executive Floor, and the complimentary breakfast, snacks, drinks, and evening hors d'oeuvres were well worth the extra cost. The hotel is very family friendly. The only disappointing part of the hotel were the restaurants - the food was mediocre (at best), and the service […] extremely slow. That being said, you're only a short cab ride away from many other restaurant options. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Check in was a bit of a nightmare. Took and hour for them to process the 6 couples in front of us and lacked staffing. At 600pm when the did find our rooms, it was another hour because they had still yet to be cleaned. Frist nights dinner was just beyond stupid. 4 diners, 2 plates showed after a half hour and the other 2 plates, a hamburger and a salad […] took another half hour. Really now, and hour to cook a hamburger for a kid? After that things went fairly smooth. Nice enough place. we checked out 02/18 to fly home only to have my son tell me he left his laptop under his bed. For some reason they never found it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice resort with very good location. Nice beach."
Really enjoyed this resort. Staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help. Only one minor problem occurred when we asked the bell hop about traveling to a nearby restaurant. He advised us to take a cab when in reality the restaurant was less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Several other hotel guests also went to the same restaurant […] and were told by other employees that it was just a short, safe walk from the hotel. Beach is nice. Surf could be rough at times so it may not be the best for families with small children. Hotel was clean and well maintained. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and beach"
This hotel is very nice. The rooms are comfortable and nice and oceanfront view wonderful. The pool area was nice and the pool bar area. The breakfast buffet restaurant was good and staff were nice. Little disorganized but didn't really matter. The hotel grounds overall were pretty and beach was nice too. Internet in common areas worked well and by […] pool and on some of beach. They should extend to guest rooms for free. Went to desk for restaurant recommendation and was asked in response ... Well what do you want and never really got one so asked bar wait staff instead and got some. Fri night fish fry was fun. Barbados and the people are amazing and we would recommend this hotel and the island overall to everyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was our first trip to Barbados and we absolutely loved it. The Hilton is in such a great location - the sand really is as white as you see in the pictures and the water really is that amazing turquoise color! We booked an executive level room so that we could be guaranteed a higher floor and also take advantage of the continental breakfasts in […] the executive lounge. It worked out perfectly - from our balcony we had a view of the beach and ocean as far as the eye can see - not an 'ocean glimpse' but a complete, unobstructed view. The design of the hotel is in such a way that I think every room has an ocean view - this means that the outside of the hotel is not particularly attractive but from the inside everyone gets a little piece of Barbados all to themselves. The staff were very friendly and the hotel has all you need... though we would have liked an additional dining option and a swim-up bar in the pool would be genius but that's just our 'wish list'. The food is of course expensive, it's a hotel and you're kinda trapped but just factor it into your travel budget. You'll spend around US$10 for a cocktail and US$25 - 35 for basic entrees. Try to go to the Oistins fish markets on a Friday or Saturday night ($20 cab ride from The Hilton) for great seafood (cheap!) and outdoor dancing - locals and tourists alike all seem to flock there. We would go back to the Hilton again - their beach can't be beat! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful Views...Nice Hotel"
We always stay at Hilton Hotels. This one seems to be a little older but still is nice. We stayed on an executive floor which gives you a Continental breakfast, snacks, drinks and computer access in the lounge. The bar grill is great for lunches and drinks, the pools are beautiful and not too crowded as is the beach access. We were happy with our stay […] and would go there again.

"overnight before a cruise, started the vacation"
The ocean view rooms are fabulous overlooking the pool and decking then out to the beautiful blue waters of Barbados....Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall, we loved our stay. The rooms were spacious and clean, the food was fantastic and the service was top rate. And we loved that we were right on the beach. The only issue we had was that we had to take a cab wherever we wanted to go, but I would imagine that's the same for most resorts in Barbados, as the island is fairly spread out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed at this resort for the Hennessey Concert series in Barbados. My stay was nothing short of excellent. The hotel is located about 20 mins from the Grantley Adams International airport depending on traffic and is located next to a predestine stretch of beach. Its design it typical for a hotel in this region. The staff members are friendly, well […] trained and very courteous. The rooms are modern, well kept and cleaned daily. The buffet breakfast at the restaurant is of a high standard similar to those of other facilities that I've been to. It included a wide variety of items on the menu plus a lil extra "barbadian" love. There were various activities on evenings to entertain guests. My overall experience at this facility was very pleasing and relaxing. Money well spent. Will definitely return.

"Close to beach, large pool, good amenities"
Hilton provides good value for the money. The main highlight for us was the almost exclusive access to the beach. We used the pool only a few times, but I can imagine someone who wants to spend their time in the pool will appreciate the size of the pool. Hotel has more than its fair share of restaurants, and in general the food/drinks are nice (for […] some reason we really struggled to find good food in barbados, everybody seems to have fried flying fish). The service was ok. However, we found the manners of the personnel a bit "odd", when asked for questions -- perhaps a cultural thing. Sometimes they looked puzzled, but most of the time they looked uncomfortable answering. E.g., "How can we get to St. Lawrance Gap" was greeted as if the personnel was at discomfort revealing a long kept secret that should have only been kept to the locals. A few other times they acted edgy. Another thing: when we asked for opinions, we were giving a long list of options, but not opinions. I'm thinking maybe it is a culture thing. Overall pleasant we've had a pleasant experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful stay at a Hilton property!"
I really enjoyed my time at the Hilton hotel in Barbados. It was located right on the beach and the service was great. I was met at the airport by a member of the Hilton staff who assisted me with getting a taxi to the hotel. I was met at the hotel with a welcome drink and very friendly and welcoming staff. The location, service and food was great and […] I would definitely stay at this hotel again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great resort near Bridgetown"
The resort was wonderful overall, albeit a bit expensive for food and drink, but you're on vacation! The sand on the beach is soft - almost like flour between your toes. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and if you need to see TV, there are US stations and local feed from Miami. For a must have lunch, try Cuz Fish Shack about 5min walk out […] the gate, just before the Radisson. No menu posted, but they only serve a Marlin fish sandwich - but be sure to order it "with cheese and fried egg". About US$6 and worth every bite. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fabulous hotel on a 'double cove' on the Caribbean"
With two 'coves' (one very quiet and calm, one that could be calm in the morning and then body-surfing ready in the afternoon), this hotel had everything.

The accomodations were great. The hotel was beautiful, the pool, etc. However, the beds were pretty hard. My back hurt every morning. Also, the food and drink prices were VERY expensive.

The hotel is very close to downtown Bridgetown, which made it an easy drive for us when we wanted to go to the city.
