Did not want to leave

Our flight was delayed so we did not arrive until dusk. There are no signs , just a gate that opened to reveal a wooden bridge across a large pond, lit by flaming torches. As you exit the taxi you are personally greeted with the phrase, Welcome Home. Because it was dusk there was recessed lighting in the floor that lead your eye down the few steps through the lounge and straight into the sunset. There is no reception, an Ambassador brings you a glass of champagne while you take in the views before taking you to your room, which was huge, 2 bathrooms, 2 walk in wardrobes, 2 balconies, large lounge area - and views across the Caribbean. Breakfast, with champagne, is superb, excellent choice, again with sea view. The Ambassadors are very friendly and attentive but without being obtrusive. The hotel exceeds at the little touches, sun cream available by the beach, cleaning your sunglasses, bringing round bottles of cold water, icecream (with rum) and fresh fruit, not forgetting the cream teas with scones, jam and Cornish clotted cream. Whatever you need the Ambassadors can arrange. Whist the hotel does not have a restaurant you can dine on the torch lit terrace and have dinner served from Daphne's next door, and if you are lucky, so can dine and watch the turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs . It is very tempting just to lay back and be pampered 24/7 but hire a car and see the rest of Barbados, little coves and long deserted beaches on the Atlantic side, but it was always good to get back to the House.

There are signs of this property getting a bit tired...we new this before we went. ...However, what a great time we had. So relaxed, and the ambassador principle will only work if they are all up for it...they certainly are. Brilliant location and ambassadors will organise return taxi to all the renowned restaurants...literally within minutes.. Would We return ?....absolutely. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Outstanding boutique hotel

One of the top three hotels and we have stayed in many hotels all over the world. The staff are the best you can find. The amenities are terrific. We loved the breakfasts and the afternoon tea. The cold fruit, bottled water, cold cloths and ice cream sundaes brought to you at the beach are outrageously delicious. Rooms were comfortable and dinners were very good. We also had excellent dinners at Zaccios and Caribe. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Loved every minute of our stay!

We have been at Sandy Lane in the past, but wanted to experience a new property. The House is quiet and intimate, and the Ambassador program is exceptional. Every staff member is trained to assist with dinner reservations, taxis, outings, and general questions about Barbados. There is no need for a concierge as the ambassadors can take care of all of your needs. The personal service is unmatched- while on the beautiful beach,staff members come by with bottles of water, fresh fruit,and ice cream, and periodically clean your glasses and brush sand from your lounge chair, all with a smile! Everyone is very friendly and they learn your name and your preferences quickly. We had the true Caribbean experience at The House, unlike Sandy Lane, which can feel a bit like staying at a museum with all of the marble and fountains( not to mention crowded). Afternoon tea is complementary and very enjoyable, as well as evening canapés. Daphnes Italian restaurant next door, provides all meals and is very good. We can't wait to return to The House!

A unique hotel
Feb 13th, 2020
This was our second visit to The House and it was even better than when we last visited in 2016. It ticks every box for us - great beachside location, fantastic staff, adults only, so blissfully quiet, and a lovely, friendly relaxed atmosphere. It’s a bit quirky and unconventional at times - and it could do with a bit of a refurb in some areas - but it would be a terrible shame if Marriott converted it into a ghastly, characterless all-inclusive place which are ten a penny in the Caribbean. What is so refreshing is that the team are such good fun and bring real Bajan personality to the hotel. The food from Daphnes is great too - and you’re also on the doorstep of half a dozen world class restaurants (another reason why all-inclusive would be crazy). TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
