Checked out after 1 Day

Halcyon Palms is nothing like what is promoted on the Website. Nowhere near the Beach (even taxi drivers were unable to find it, postcode takes you to different address near the Beach) Reception is nowhere near the accommodation. Room was clean ish but dated. Halcyon Palm is 30 mins walk from town centre shops, nightlife/bars and beach. No lighting when walking back at night.

Comment from Hotel Management

23 Jan 2018 by Halcyon Palm.

We are sorry the taxi driver had problems finding the resort, postcodes are not used in Barbados as they are in the US or the UK to locate properties via GPS in the same way, we would have gladly provided directions but most taxi drivers would know where Travellers Palm is. It is stated clearly that you must check in to the reception at our sister property Travellers Palm as there is no reception at Halcyon Palm. The property is a close walking distance to the shops, banks and a convenience store of Sunset Crest, not a 30 minute walk . The beach is less than a 10 minute walk away from the property. The centre of Holetown is a little further north to us but is not a 30 minute walk. We are in a residential area and do not control the street lighting in the neighbourhood but there are street lights, however they generally are not as strong or bright as you may be used to in other countries.

Value for money for rooms but hidden charges

Rooms good but fridge did not work add 100 US dollars for internet and a safe key for a 10 night stay . Did not use pool as had electric light dangerously hanging by a wire in cloudy water staff were pleasant good quiet location within walking distance are bus stops restaurants and a beach bar you get what you pay for would stay again

Good value, great location

rooms very basic as most reviews say. Location fantasic and well worth the money with bars and supermarkets close by. fantasic coffee shop at the bottom of the rd selling local coffee excellent! A number of beaches close by and other locations are just a reggie bus away. Barbados is an excellent place with great people, Halcyon palm lets you experience this at a good price.

chilled holiday with friend

When we arrived we thought it perhaps a little basic as we have only been all inclusive in Barbados. Once settled in and been to the supermarket we realized it was very convenient and friendly and the beach and shops were not far away. We enjoyed the food from the white vans which was very reasonable, and an easy stroll in the evenings to Just Grillin, and Angry Annies Bar, Zaccios and lots more. We also ate in sometimes which was great sitting on our balcony in the sun. Wendy at Travellers Palm reception was really helpful and informative. I wouldn't hesitate to use these apartments again. We hired a driver and went on an island tour which was brilliant. Spent most of the time in the sea and walking on the beautiful beaches, as have been there several times before

Holiday with best mate

Absolutely amazing. The location was perfect 2 mins drive to beach and shopping mall. Internet wasn't great but hey whom needs it when on holiday and they didn't charge us for it at the end so happy days. The rooms were cleaned every day and the cleaner even did our washing up which she didn't have to!! The beds were comfy and storage was good. Kettle was dodgy but we boiled water on the stove, hey we improvised. Any one on here that gives this hotel negative reviews is a fool!! It was a fantastic holiday for little money. The staff were beautiful and so helpful, we were given a choice of three apartments on our arrival, how amazing is that!! We are two very happy bunnies and we will be back and use this hotel again for sure.

a very tired resort needing a lot of work

We stayed at this resort when it first opened and then it was cleaned daily by ample staff and a very nice place to stay perfectly located for us as we are divers. This is why we returned but unfortunately it has gone downhill fast. The room was very dirty when we checked in(for example there was an empty durex packet under the bed-nice!!) and only cleaned once in the 8 days we were there even then we had to ask for it to be cleaned. The pool had a rather nice layer on top of the water so needless to say we never went in. I believe the pump wasn't working. I don't blame the staff as there weren't enough of them. When we asked for sheets or towels we got them immediately and also any problem with the room was fixed almost straight away. Needless to say we will not be returning there in the future. We have been going to Barbados for over 25 years and normally stayed in St. James and Sunset Crest area. A lot of the 3 star rentals seem to be going this way ie very nice initially but are not looked after very well. We will still be returning to Barbados but will have to find somewhere else to stay.

sonniger Urlaub auf Barbados

- Recht ruhig, wenig Kinder, Kunden eher über 50. - Für Selfcatering ist die Küche zu spartanisch ausgerüstet. - Warum man in einem Land mit stets hohen Temperaturen für die Klimaanlage extra bezahlen soll, ist unverständlich. - Nähe zu Strand und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten: zu Fuss machbar, lieber mit Mietwagen. - Personal grösstenteils sehr freundlich - Sauberkeit lässt Raum für Verbesserung

angenehme Appartementanlage

Die Appartements sind gestaffelt angeordnet. Ein kleiner Pool mit Sonnenschirmen und Liegestühle in der Mitte boten eine familiäre Atmosphäre. Die haben eine angenehme Grösse. Die Küche sind zwar spärlich eingerichtet, aber es hat zum kochen gereicht. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Anlage ist ruhig gelegen und in 5 Minuten ist man zu Fuss am Strand. Ich würde wieder im Halcyon Palm buchen. Es wurde täglich geputzt und regelmässig Wäsche gewechselt.
