This is a great place to stay. A true Caribbean experience. Located up on a hill over looking the Ocean, but with-in walking distance to the water. The rooms have double louvered doors, no screens or glass. Beds have the mosquito nets, not that there was a bug to be found. They have hammocks to lounge in (very cool) ....

I stayed here for two nights this month and had a very enjoyable stay. The staff are friendly and it was nice staying somewhere quiet, out of the hustle of Bridgetown. The botanical gardens are nearby and worth a visit. The ticket allows you a free return entry for your time on the island. You can also walk the old...

Beautiful spot. Definitely away from the main tourist traps. Hire a car, would recommend 4x4 as all roads on the island are horrendous. Ask for room with Air Con. Will be back one day. Beautiful spot on a beautiful island; with helpful staff and high standards.

We had a delightful honeymoon based at sea u Barbados. A wonderful guest house, with staggering surroundings, friendly and helpful staff and delicious breakfasts.

A secret gem of a place, perched in an idyllic location above the Atlantic: the bluest of seas, the whitest of breakers, the greenest of palms. This is wild, scraggy, often beautiful country, far from the tourist bustle. The rooms in the big main house are airy, with a pleasant island feel. Most people staying here seem to be surfers...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A chic and affordable bed & breakfast at the lush east coast. Sea-U is tucked within a lush tropical garden along the seaside slopes of the village of Bathsheba on the east coast of Barbados, the most natural side of the island. Here you can enjoy unspoiled beaches, breathtaking views and mingle with locals. Uschi Wetzels, owner and manager and fell in love with Bathsheba and its friendly people, while working on a Barbados travel guide for a German editor. With hammocks strung between coconut palms, the Atlantic Ocean waves breaking against massive limestone boulders. Sea-U is a place for those who are looking for a decidedly significant change of pace from a busy life. The main house and the cottage are built in a traditional island style out of wood with large patios. The 10 rooms and apartments are decorated with mahogany furniture, louver window treatments, rattan chairs, locally handcrafted clay lamps and batik art. Sea-U's welcoming staff provides knowledgeable information. The atmosphere is relaxed, and guests quickly become friends. Green Globe certified, close to Andromeda Botanical Gardens and world class surfing at Soup Bowl. ... more   less
