I overnighted in barbados on my way elsewhere. I stayed at the Shonlan, 5 minutes from the airport. I did not get in until midnight, but Debra was friendly and kind while showing me to my room. The place was clean, basic but still pretty, and quiet. I could not have asked for more, and would stay there again. For...

My flight was cancelled so instead of going back to my original hotel, I googled places close to airport, found a taxi driver and I decided to stay here since my flight was rescheduled for 3am the next morning . I should have just returned back to my original hotel which was 25 minute drive away , instead of this...

Thank you for your review. It is a pity that you did not feel you could leave the safety of your room or use the telephone to let us know of your challenges. We do operate a facility with male and female guests - as most other properties do - but we have never had any issues because of this....

I often fly through Barbados to visit more remote Caribbean destinations and usually stay overnight at the Shonlan. While it is not luxury hotel, it is clean and within minutes to the airport. No other hotel in Barbados can make this claim. There is no restaurant on the premises or within walking distance; however the local KFC delivers. So don't...

My husband and I arrive at the Shonlan Hotel, and were welcome by the owner, Mr Reid. He was extremely nice, the hotel was clean, and we spend 2 week there. Transportation was near to travel to and from, easy to learn, and very helpful from the staff. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to travel to Barbados.

Thank you for taking the time to review Shonlan Inn and Apartments. There is much to see and do in Barbados, and we are more than happy to be able to showcase our island to our guests. Getting around the island couldn't be simpler, and the pleasure is ours when it comes to being unofficial itinerary planners.

Hotel was clean and the rooms were nice with clean drinking water and Wifi. The manager is a nice old man who once you get to talking won't stop. The hotel is close to the airport, but far from anything else. This is a good spot if you are just spending a night and flying out the next day. No...

If all you are looking for a clean, convenient place to overnight between flights at the BGI airport, this hotel might be your best choice. Although it is only 5 minutes from the airport, it seems to be in a residential area with nothing around it. I did not see a restaurant. Rooms are drab and small with minimal amenities....

We've been doing what we do for the last four decades, and it is our pleasure to host you on your stay, even if only for a brief while.

The tourist office at Barbados airport recommended this hotel & called it to secure our reservation for 1 night. The taxi pulled up outside a residential house and we thought there was some mistake – but no, this was the ‘hotel’!
