“A Wonderful Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Beach View with our two teenagers. The apartment was a wonderful choice for us. Having two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and so much living area (a full living room, a separate eating area and a full kitchen) made our stay so much more comfortable and relaxing than a stay in a standard hotel room. The ocean view from our apartment was stunning. The grounds were beautifully landscaped, the apartment was clean and pleasantly decorated, and everything was well maintained. Management was friendly and helpful.

The Beach View is not on the beach; you must cross a busy street to reach the beach, which is small and quiet (in a good way). A somewhat livelier beach (sand chairs, water sports operators) is a very short beach stroll north. We had a rental car so we didn't use the convenient bus stop across the street, but bus service appeared to be frequent. Nearby Holetown had groceries, convenience stores, bank ATMs, numerous restaurants, and other shopping.

We hope to return to Barbados on future holidays and would stay again at Beach View.

There's not a lot in Payne's Bay - a fish stand, The Cliff and these apartments. But it's absolutely great. You've your choice of the 2 public transport bus services or BV will sort you a good driver to wherever on the island including the supermarket, places to see and be seen, and the shiny new designer shopping centre. The reviews have explained the benefits of the apartments and they are right. Great facilities particularly for kids as the children's pool is very large and only knee deep. Nice touches like pool toys, barbecues and the breakfast hut create a community feel. One thing to be aware of... all of the apartment blocks have a lovely view but one is closer to the road so have larger rooms but no large outdoor balcony (there's a tiny one but the rest is closed in by glass). May not bothers you, but make it clear when you book if it does. You can spot the two types on the website photos. This is a smoothly run operation and there's a determination to give a quality customer experience... It's why people return year after year.

Beach View's great reputation is well deserved - beautiful hotel apartments, superb staff who can't do enough for you and a great location - a 20 ft walk to the beach, located a short walk to two of the best restaurants on Barbados; as well as the sea views, pools and excellent, spotless facilities!

There's no doubt that we will be back soon.

Beach View offered good service in an excellent location at price to value ratio that we don't think can be bested in Barbados. The apartments are large and well appointed and the pool area is large and enjoyable. The beach the property views is one of the few undeveloped ones on the west side of the island and while you have to cross a road to get to it, that is no impediment to its enjoyment.

While enjoying all the comforts of a major hotel except room service dining, Beach View offers daily maid service with limited linen change, free parking and excellent security as well as a quiet environment. Some of the best restaurants on the island are within a short walking distance. The staff is well trained and happy to help with problems large and small. Kitchens are large and have all major appliances, Wireless internet had some hookup problems in the bedroom but an ether net cable resolved that matter. There is one TV set in the living room and none in the bedroom and there is an ipod dock as well. Units have washers and dryers which is very helpful.

Air conditioning has been mentioned in other reviews as an issue and it was one we were concerned about. The units are zoned by room and turn on when one enters and stay on for the most part until you leave. It promotes economy but we found it less than satisfactory and would suggest the owners and staff rethink the benefit of saving electricity versus resolving this matter.

Our time here was some of the most relaxing of our lives! the hotel itself was lovely- the apartments were extremely well-appointed. Full kitchens, with dishes and all, a washer and dryer, a large living room and bedroom- complete with a patio overlooking the pool. It was the perfect spot to enjoy a home cooked breakfast every morning. The bedroom had also had a small patio, and with the sliding glass door open, you could hear the waves crash as you drifted off to sleep after along day in the sun. Some people might not appreciate it early in the morning, but the sound of the roosters was so fantastic. Not loud enough to wake you up, but loud enough to enjoy once you were.
the parking was great, safe and plentiful, as was the location- it was close to everything, most importantly Holetown for shopping!
The beach across the street was a bit rocky- but so pristine! Perfect for an early morning dip before a day of exploring the island. And of course, the sunset! it was like out of a movie- so beautiful! Definitely something to be enjoyed each day of your trip!

Room Tip: away from the main road- which can be noisy/ busy during the day
