  • 8.0.Very good

    All the staff was pleasant and helpful, from the front-desk staff to the kitchen staff to the bell hop. They ensured that I was comfortable and checked in on me if I did not order food from the kitchen to ensure that I was taken care of in terms of meals. I did not particularly like the bathroom area. It was a bit rough/worn. The rest of the room was fine. The pool view was really calming and pleasant. Overall, yes, I would stay there again and I would recommend it to others as well.

  • 4.0.Fair

    This property was poorly maintained and older. The wi-fi was the worst ever!!! The staff was sour-faced and not too friendly. I paid for a partial ocean view and could not get an internet signal. The replacement of towels was even problematic. I did not witness the housekeeper using any cleaning products to address the bathroom.

    Sunbay in Barbados a treat!

    The hospitality at Sunbay was extraordinary. A friend of mine was able to stay with me for the week at no extra cost. The only caveat is the dining room. It seems to be quite rudimentary although breakfasts were always excellent. Our plan was to eat at other areas in Barbados anyway. Swimming and relaxation were super!

    Our trip to Paradise

    Our stay in Barbdos was excellent, due to an excellent hotel experience. The staff at rhe Sunbay hotel were very professional, polite and helpful, especially the assustan manager Mrs. O'conner who assissted in arranging all of our tours, which we thourghly enjoyed, she went out of her way to ensure we had got the best of what Barbados had to offer, taking into consideration cost and time. We will definitely be returning to the island in the future to enjoy more Bajan hospitality

    Quiet area, however, the daily construction before 9am was a disturbance for those wanting to sleep in.

    Grubby hotel. The most uncomfortable beds I have ever used. No hot water on arrival. Hair dryer in room not working. Rooms very sparse and badly lit. Overall a thoroughly disappointing experience.

    Good location budget hotel

    Older budget hotel but good value for money if you're trying to see Barbados on a budget. Close to beaches and restaurants, has a lovely pool, only 15 minutes walk to Oistins Fish fry. As long as you're not expecting luxury its great. Bring your on beach towels though.I would stay there again!
