Nice beach and quite location
We had a great time in Barbados and were satisfied with the hotel. We had the meal plan for which dinner was pretty good though breakfast was okay and lunch left much to be desired. For the price I do wish they included drinks. Also, they need to refresh the game room. Most things where broken/missing. You get to use their sister properties on the island which is cool but know that the meal plan doesn't carry over. Except I think to colony club which is far. In any case we had a wonderful time enjoying the beach and weather.

Stayed for 10 days to attend a wedding at The House Hotel next door (Part of the elegant group). Room very spacious, views beautiful. Staff very helpful across the whole spectrum. No complaints. Enjoyed our stay and the convenience of being able to use facilities from all the elegant hotels within the Group
