...those are two words that come to my mind after staying one whole week at the Discovery Bay by Rex Resorts in Barbados during our stay in April 2017 Easter week. Let´s start by talking about the infrastructure. This beautiful property takes you to the old days of Créole-style architecture. The main buildings are elegant. Our room was located in...

We have just returned from our third visit to Discovery Bay and were delighted to find that, despite what some reviewers claim, it has not lost it's charm, comfort and excellent levels of service. The rooms are a little dated but comfortable and functional (they are due to be upgraded over the next few months). The food available for breakfast...

We also read the negative reviews but were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is an old colonial style hotel and has a very relaxed atmosphere, not a modern 5 star hotel. The food was plentiful and flavorsome, good home cooking. The pool is lovely with the outside bar and plenty of comfortable sun loungers. The beach is great and we saw...

I heard Barbados is a very nice place to visit and i saw this 4.5 star resort on Tripadvisor and booked it online. I called the resort the night before I arrived to see if there was any shuttle bus going there from the airport but their voicemail was full and no one was answering. So I took a taxi...

Thank you for taking the time to offer us your feedback on your visit. Our property is advertised an a colonial style plantation property and hence we do depict that characteristic. Our hotel is located in the heart of Holetown where the beaches are normally calm however as we do not have any control over the sea swells that happen...

We spent a night at Discovery Bay Hotel after the accommodation that we had originally booked fell through. We turned up at the hotel at around 7.30pm in a somewhat tired and emotional state in the hope they might have some rooms free. The reception staff were fantastic, offering us some fortifying rum punch! They quickly found us some rooms...

We stayed in the seafront apartments - fantastic views, and the sound of the sea ever present. Hotel is a bit tired but the people are so wonderful. Really good food and laods of it. Great bar. Comfy rooms and lovely beds.

Just back from a 10 night stay at this perfectly located and very friendly hotel. Our first time all inclusive, although we chose to eat out at different restaurants in the evening,we found the breakfast and lunches to be of a high quality. The wines and cocktails were very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Excellent staff from the...

We read a lot of negative reviews and decided to literally not take them too seriously. We were so happy we did not take the negative feedback on board. This hotel is in a great location and in our mind the best place to stay. We really enjoyed ourselves, yes it does need a makeover but this does not effect...

If you stay here you should try and get the Ocean View - it has stunning views. This was the best aspect of the hotel, which was otherwise pretty average. Most of the staff were friendly, however some of the evening bar staff were miserable and were reluctant to serve anybody really (and quite simply didn't want to be there)....
