My husband and I stayed at this resort recently and loved the staff and especially how they did the registration when we arrived. They gave us a drink and basically took us to our room...we have never experienced that before. The room we were in, wow. It was a suite and the living room had only three walls so one of the walls was open but the bedroom was air conditioned. This was the most romantic room we have ever stayed in. At night, we would sit and relax with a drink in our room but it was like we were sitting outside, with complete privacy. The Spa was amazing. We luv to work out and they had great equipment and a gym set up that not a lot of people were using. I did get a massage as well which was very relaxing. We also did the turtle swim which I highly recommend. Everything was included so this worked really well for us. We can't wait to go back and try one of the other Almond Hotels!
We visited this past week.Hotel was at 50% capacity.The service was great.Room was a suite ,pool side .No troubl se getting reservations at sister hotel ,Almond bay village. Best ever Italian food and attentive service.Enids restaurant prepares island food,the best soups we ever tasted. The 100 yard beach is the only downside,full of rocks and coral.Walk 500 yards to a lovely beach on clear,calm water. Wait staff put on a fashion show in bathing suits,they were great.All adults only guests mostly from UK and Canada.Very friendly.Book a private island tour on your own $105.00 US for 3 hours.
The front desk/office staff friendly & polite, however the staff workers - the woman to be specific, were just the opposite. My husband and I travel quite a bit, and I've never met more impolite, hostile, rude staff workers. The standard room was very small to the point of uncomfortable but clean. The beachfront is unaccessible to guest to use for swimming, must walk down some ways for beach access. The restaurant food was average sort of bland, surely nothing to rave about. We were unable to secure reservations at the 2 other restaurants on location and at the sister hotel Almond Beach Village for dinner. The one restaurant ALWAYS available is mostly buffet style meals. Not at all what I expected. Beware the All-Inclusive has many exceptions and they push activities and tours on the guest which are pricey.
We stayed at the all inclusive for our honeymoon and could have been any happier. The hotel's food, amenities and location were all great to the point that we look forward to staying there again. You can pay more but that does not mean that you will get more. Also, the staff and the facility managed well. As travelers we are always looking for places that allow us unwind and be tourist and we do not quibble over small things.
The view, food and friendliness of staff Bed comfortable but quality of the room poor. Furniture tired. We were able to open patio doors but there was no proper balcony which we had paid for. The bathroom needed a complete refurbishment. The best part was the location with wonderful sea views.
Great place to relax for peace and quiet. No kids. The staff was very friendly and acommodating
Just returned from a wonderful week at the Almond Beach Club. The accomodations were great, the ocean was a stone throw from our balcony, and the bar was just around the corner from the room. The margarittas were fantastic. We love the water and the snorkling was excellent with a reef and two ship wrecks within an easy swim from the Club. The service was fair, but some of the workers took the time to learn our names and shared our experiences on a daily basis. The kitchen staff went out of there way to provide us with picnic lunches for our excursions. Meet alot of interesting people and made a lot of new friends. We were meet at the airport by an employee of the tour guide service. She had arranged transportation to the Almond and later meet with us to book our outings for the week. Everyone was on time and the trips were a lot of fun. I did feel like we were stiffed a couple of times by the locals. On one trip we stopped for lunch at a local roadside dinner and the prices were not clearly posted. The cost was to much for what we ate. There were no bargans when shopping for items to bring home. The locals were very kind and helpful when traveling around the island. We never felt anxious or uneasy when shopping. It was a wonderful week and I will return.
My friend and I booked this trip for a relaxing, uneventful, quiet vacation after some rough times at work and in life. We picked it because it's all inclusive and adult only. Needless to say, we had a fabulous time! From sleeping oceanside in the middle of the day then waking up for afternoon tea, to taking the Rum and Island tour, boat rides and snorkeling trips for relatively little or no money since all water sports were included in the price of the room. The hotel staff was fanastic by making sure to give us good tips on things to do around the island and always engaged in meaningful, genuine conversation. Our room was way more than we expected since it had a living room and a separate bedroom and a whirlpool tub with a shower. We definitely want to go again to experience some of the island's festivals in the future but it will not be soon enough.
The sunny island, supper staff, best food and supper service, enjoy !!!
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Barbados. We arrived on Monday June 2, 2008 and fell in love with the Island and with our hotel the Sugar Cane Club. We were able to stay in a one bedroom with small kitchen and living room for the price of most hotel rooms. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was pleasant and the weather was great. We did not rent a car I was concerned with driving on the left side and the narrow roads in Barbados. Next time I will rent a car. The staff was very helpful. They drove us to town several times. We were able to buy groceries and one day we rode the public bus to Bathsheba. If you go to Barbados make sure you see the beach at Bathsheba it is awesome. The bus ride was $1.50 bds (75 cents US dollars). My wife didn't want to come home. The pool area and grounds are beautiful. Flowering trees and plants everywhere. The sunsets are spectacular. The hotel is not on the beach but you can see the ocean from the restaurant. My wife enjoyed the spa onsite. It was a good vacation.
Stayed for business, but would go back again on a personal trip as well. Great property, great staff, tucked up in the hills of NWest Barbados. Views of the ocean from your balcony. Rooms are very spacious and a really good value. Serene. Little kitchenettes are perfect for breakfast and lunch. Staff is very friendly, our stay here was more like visiting friends. Very casual, very comfortable. Property is in the midst of completeing a nature walk through the grounds that will be fantastic. But in the meantime, they have a complete gym and racquetball court. And a cute little art gallery if you want to buy some local paintings. Recommend renting a car as property is close to the highway so it is easy to get around the island without having to get stuck in W.Coast/Bridgetown traffic.Easy drive to great local restaurants.
The Sugar Cane Club sits on a hill overlooking a grove of royal poinciana trees and the Atlantic Ocean. The beach and Speightstown are too far too walk, but there is a free shuttle every two hours during the day. The hour-glass shaped pool is long enough for lap swimming, and a kiddie pool keeps little children who want to splash out of the way of adults who want to swim The ''rooms'' are actually small apartments. They are newly and tastefully refinished. The kitchen is well laid out and has a full-size refrrigerator and both a range and a microwave. I thought the restaurant was overpriced, so we cooked all but 2 of our meals. The Sugar Cane Club's shuttle picked us and our groceries up at the super market in Speightstown. The weekly manager's cocktail party is a great time to get to know the owner/manager and one's fellow guests. Natalia, the daytime desk clerk, is patient, helpful, and knowledgeable. Fitness room is the best I have ever seen: everything works!
Excellent hotel for a quiet, relaxing stay. Good for reading and pool and a base for exploring the north end of the island. It is a long way from anything but not really remote. They have a shuttle service to the mile away beach and small town.
I was so suprised and thrilled that we selectresd this hotel. It is a wonderful place and even has a Spa, the staff are exceptional, food excellent and unexpected for an all inlcusive. The room was tasteful, very comfy bed and the view of the blue water a treat....can't wait to go back. if you are unsure....pick Waves, you will not be dissappointed.
Friendly service. Clean rooms. Management upgraded our room but was reluctant to assist us in finding reservation for New Year's eve outside of the hotel which held its own event. With a little effort we secured a reservation at Champers on our own. Friendly staff but not always the most competent. Clean rooms but the windows are missing mosquito screens which are absolutely necessary. Internet extremely slow and the signal rarely reached the room. In summary, 5 star prices for 3.5 star quality.
