Quirky, Quaint and Colonial is how I would describe this lovely hotel. Only 24 rooms all on one level. We arrived the day before my birthday and what a wonderful birthday it was to. Everything about this was excellent. There were a lot of couples there that were returning and some many times, which tells you something in its self. All the staff were fantastic, always cheerful and happy. Only two minutes out the door to Pebbles beach which is fabulous in its self. My daughter and son in law came one of the weeks we were there and they had a great time. Yes the clientele is on the older side generally but it is so friendly that all ages can enjoy being here. I would add one exception and that it’s not a hotel that is good for a young family holiday. It is an all inclusive hotel but meals were served at the table. We would all meet at the bar for cocktails before dinner and had wonderful conversation and met some absolutely amazing people and characters. To go on to much would make everything boring for you but I can honestly say it was one of the best holidays I have had if not the best. Very much thanks to the Management and Staff of the Island Inn Hotel. I am writing this sadly as we are locked in here in the UK like a lot of the world. But hope that everyone out there are safe and well. We plan to be back in 2021 subject to health. Stay safe everyone. Here some photos to keep you smiling and. Until next time

This resort hotel only has 24 rooms so you get to meet most of the guests around the bar ! Decor is beautiful, food excellent not at all like most all inclusive resort food, service excellent , staff will do anything for you. Literally 2 minutes walk to Carlisle Bay's beautiful beach. Rooms have everything you need. Hopefully it will re-open after the virus has receded.

Our 5th visit and as lovely as ever. Lots of returning couples. Don’t expect lots of entertainment but great for a quiet holiday with easy access to a beautiful beach and easy walk into Bridgetown and busses . Will be back probably for 3 weeks next time.

We have stayed three times now so far and this recent one was just a amazing. A small, friendly hotel with bungalows around a garden, the courtyard or the pool, It is ideal if you want a quiet, relaxing holiday on Barbados. Being All Inclusive,you can just sit and relax whilst the barman pours your favourite drink. All the staff are very friendly (we were even remembered as previous guests).Food is excellent with lots of choice. If you like walking you can just go to the beach, a stone's throw away and walk to Bridgetown. The only decision you have to make during the day is, relax by the pool or go to the beach; Heaven!!

We were there for Valentine's day and stayed a week. This small hotel is perfect if you want to spend a quiet and relaxing vacation. When we were there the guests were almost exclusively British and mostly above 50 years old. We were told that there is a lot of repeat guests all year around. The staff is exceptionally pleasant and friendly. The hotel being so small, they get to know you quickly. The hotel itself is generally in good condition and adequately maintained. Our room (#4) had a garden view. It was in OK condition but a bit small and dated in our opinion. Next time we will select a better room. The food is excellent. Most of the time you select your meal from the menu at lunch and dinner. A few times it was buffet style. Breakfast is always a buffet. There is also a couple of theme nights. They had a few shows in the evening and we enjoyed them. From the hotel you can walk to the beach (public beach). It is only a 2 minutes walk. You can snorkel right from the beach and you get to see plenty of different fish as well as turtles. No need to pay for an excursion. They rent chairs and umbrellas on the beach (20 USD a day) or you can put your towel directly on the beach. There are trees so you can be in the shade if you prefer. One thing we found awesome is that they bring the race horses at the beach to bathe and swim in the ocean on a daily basis. On Sunday there was about twelve horses in the water at the same time. You can also walk into Bridgetown. We did a lot of that. There are all sorts of things to see or do nearby such a horse racing track, historical museum visit, an extremely lively an interesting commercial street, etc. There are monkeys around the hotel even though it is right into town. We found this quite fun. Wifi works in the lobby but not in the rooms. It was our first time staying at such a small hotel but we really loved it. We seriously consider going back.
