A trek away from the beach, no room internet.
The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, unfortunately the facilities are fairly lacking.
The two big strikes:
- a 15 minute walk to the beach
- no in-room internet
You can sort of get the facility wide WiFi signal from your rooms assuming you stand next to an open the window (letting all the hot air in). But you certainly aren't going to be lying in bed looking at your tablet.
Daily fees to use the in-room safe and depending on how you book, you might have to pay for air conditioning. Things like that just detract from the excellent work of the resort staff.
In my opinion, if you're looking for cheap accommodation but cannot bear to use AirBnB, this is a decent option; but to be frank, Barbados is not the type of place you come to for a cheap vacation. Furthermore, it is in the expensive resort part of the island where finding cheap eats usually means eating junk (Chefette, KFC, etc) or rum shacks (which can be very good, but are also very much working on reduced hours during the off season).
This is a value type resort, but I think it's on the wrong part of the island for that.
