We stayed at the Beach View for the final 4 nights of our holiday in mid February. With such good reviews I'm always wary that expectations won't be met - well no worries here. We had a top floor 3 bedroom apartment in the first block, nearest the road. As written by other reviewers the zone controlled A/C is not fantastic, especially as our main balcony was enclosed, and by late afternoon was very warm, like a conservatory. But rather than use the A/C we opened all the windows, internal and patio doors, creating a wonderful through breeze and because we were on the top floor we felt safe doing this, even when we left the apartment.
The staff are very helpful and go the extra yard to assist where they can.
The pool is a lovely size and there are plenty of sunbeds. It was never too busy, in fact only a dozen or so people around the pool daily, although we did only spend the latter part of the day there. I guess most people head off for the beaches.
The apartments are very well furnished and fully equipped with everything from American style fridge,washer/dryer to blender and cheese grater. A good selection of DVD's are available free of charge from reception and a welcome pack was left in the fridge.
Walking distance from the hotel are the Cliff, Cariba and Scarletts, three fabulous restaurants. We ate in all three and were not disappointed.
I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends and if we return to Barbados would definitely stay again.
