This is primarily a foodie review but I can summarise the hotel as follows: Rooms - ok, not bothered by traffic noise but our balcony doors didn't lock, so you could move the left door even if the lock was active. The plugs either side of the bed didn't work, so we had a bit of scheduling to do to...

Arrived 3rd January to a warm breeze and cool cocktail on the terrace. The Soco is a boutique hotel with 26 rooms. The rooms are cool and spacious with a balcony. All rooms have an amazing sea view. This didn't affect us, however had heard others say that the road that is at the front of the hotel is noisy....

We wanted a small boutique hotel where the food wasn't all from a buffet, and the hotel met our expectations. Lovely location right by the sea and with the boardwalk, which we used every day, starting in front of the hotel. Room was fine with the balcony facing the sea the highlight, although the toiletries were a little more basic...

This was our third stay at the SOCO in 3/4 years - we always go mid-January. We are a couple in our late twenties / early thirties. We aren't ones to ever go back to the same place twice, but this place is so special. What is amazing: - Location: impossible to beat this crystal clear sea view and cost-line...

Its not a 4 star hotel, more like a good 3 stars.The room were OK in size and ambience but just OK. There was some street noise in...

Had an absolutely amazing time at the SoCo Hotel. From the second we arrived in the airport, we were greeted by our friendly taxi driver who gave us a quick tour of Barbados. The country itself is breathtaking. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were greeted with rum punch and scenic views of the crystal clear water. The decor of...

We've just spent a week here. The plus points are the location on the beach, at the end of the broad walk. Easy bus into Bridgetown and a walk to the musuems. It's nice being in a small hotel. Great if you want to meet other guests and get to know them. Negatives. The food! It is extremely repetitive after...

Absolutely enjoyed my stay at the SoCo Hotel. From our arrival to departure we were well taken care of. The staff was very personable, friendly, helpful, and professional. For my birthday, we were treated to an unforgettable breakfast. It started with a decorated table including my very own birthday card, photographer, DJ, MC, and hostess. At dinner, the staff serenaded...
