Overview

Superb location by Carlisle Bay
Worn rooms, hit-or-miss service and disappointing cuisine, according to past guests
If you're looking for a luxurious beach resort for your Barbados vacation, you might want to consider booking elsewhere, according to recent guests. To some visitors, the Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados is dated, the customer service can be slow and spotty and the food at the on-site Aquatic Club Restaurant and Neptune's Grill is poor. But whether they liked their stay or not, most guests concede that the location is unbeatable. The Radisson Aquatica overlooks Carlisle Bay, providing direct access to 2 miles of white sand beaches. There is also a beachfront pool that lodgers can take a dip in if the sand proves too sticky. Meanwhile, guest rooms and suites are decorated in earth tones and feature flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access, coffee makers and work desks with ergonomic chairs. All accommodations also feature private balconies or terraces. According to reviewers, you should make the most of the hotel's location by booking an ocean view room. Or better yet, opt for a corner ocean view room, which is equipped with two balconies. Radisson Rewards members can earn points here to cover the cost of future stays. You can find this Radisson outpost near Needhams Point in Bridgetown, about 10 miles west of Grantley Adams International Airport.

READ MORE 

Situated in the Aquatic Gap close to Bridgetown, the Radisson Aquatica Resort has a beautiful beachfront location – the water is calm, blue, and clear. ... Towering over the area at seven stories, it also has the ambience of a chain hotel, and can feel large and impersonal.
