Couldn’t be better!

Jul 20th, 2019

We were lucky enough to spend 5 nights at The House and couldn’t have had a better holiday. We’d heard the service was great but it totally surpassed our expectations. We’ve been fortunate enough to travel to some beautiful places around the world including The Maldives, Thailand, Vietnam and across the Caribbean but Barbados takes the prize. The Bajan people are lovely, friendly, funny and proud and never harass you unlike many other tourist destinations. This could be the first trip we’ve made where we will book for next year before we fly home! The House was awesome, all the staff were lovely but Andrew in particular made us laugh everyday! Brilliant! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Week getaway

Jul 7th, 2019

First visual impressions were pleasant but not overwhelming. But how wrong we were! The hotel was private, quiet and very discrete. But what really made it was the service - which was just outstanding. A small example follows. Unfortunately, I had to get up at 4am for a conference call one day. Without being asked, the night Barman kept bringing coffees over on the house. The beach, the views, the food, the service and most of all the people were outstanding. We recommend this unreservedly - this is a beautiful place, with universally delightful staff in a beautiful part of this exquisite island. We are grateful for such a wonderful stay and will definitely return. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

The House...Just Book It!

Jul 7th, 2019

From the moment we arrived and welcomed by the perfect host in SherryAnne and the ‘Best Rum Punch EVER!’, this set the scene from what we knew would be a fantastic holiday at The House. With a Ocean View Junior Suite with views to die-for, Esther and her housekeeping team ensured the rooms were cleaned and well catered for including two daily services with spa quality toiletries. Breakfast is as one would expect with the addition of free-flowing Piper Champagne, which we indulged in on more than one occasion. The beach & pool area are well maintained and clean with the offer of complimentary flavoured and bottled water, sun cream, sun glasses cleaning, fruit and an ice lolly to cool us down in the afternoon sun. Every week Sandra hosts her manager’s cocktail reception which we found to be upbeat & relaxed and an opportunity to meet her team and other guests. Led by Sandra’s pursuit to deliver a consistent first class customer service experience throughout our stay, The House Ambassadors is what sets The House apart from other destinations on the island. As frequent visitors to the island, The Ambassadors have nailed the fine art of professionalism and friendliness. Although all Ambassadors are great, we would like to mention Wade, Richard, Ricardo, Shane and Matthew. A special shout-out goes to Nicholas who served us our evening Rum Punch. Best of all though was Esther who has been at The House for over 20 years. Her infectious personality and sense of humour, as well as her high standards was a joy to meet such a lovely lady. From our experience, taking over from The Cliff, the now number one restaurant on the island is Tides, a beautiful location and first class restaurant experience. Fusion rooftops and the Cliff Beach Club also offer an amazing setting with food to match. The Cliff Restaurant itself was mediocre; know whilst we can belt out ‘Come on Eileen and Ghostbusters’ with the best of them, it certainly wouldn’t be the music of choice for a fine dining restaurant which one can expect to pay a minimum of £300 per couple; not the ambience one would expect at the former undisputed number one restaurant in the Caribbean. For a local vibe not to be missed is the Sunday night street Karaoke at TML One Love in Holetown offering music, dance and street food. Scarlets opposite The House still retains the number one spot for casual dining, cocktails and a lively atmosphere. As we enjoy travelling to different destinations around the world, when we return to Barbados there is only one choice for us The House...Just Book It! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Birthday Barbados Bash

Jul 6th, 2019

Refined Boutique hotel that is inviting and hospitable. We enjoyed the champagne breakfasts and the short stroll to the beach. The rooms are well appointed, roomy and the bed is comfortable. I enjoyed walking out of our patio to the pool. The ice cream treats and cool towels on the beach were welcomed acts of hospitality. The chef out did himself by providing us a delicious lunch to go before our flight. The staff is simply terrific and consistent. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Fantastic Service - lots of lovely touches

Jul 2nd, 2019

We stayed here at the beginning of our honeymoon, and it was fantastic. The beach was beautiful, clean and quiet, the decor tasteful, and the service brilliant. Lots of great little touches such as the champagne breakfast, a free hour long massage, lots of cold fresh water, unlimited watersports (inc waterskiing, catamarans, ringos, paddleboarding etc) a member of staff comes round to offer fruit/ clean your glasses/ bring fresh water while you are on the beach. Highly relaxing and highly recommended. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
