Good hotel, convenient location

Pros: Clean, comfortable, convenient, polite staff.
Cons: No smoking sign in room to also state balconies to match guest info book. More regular testing of electrical appliances.
Location: Convenient for buses to popular places. Small convenience store close by for milk, bread etc.
We stayed at the Bourgainvillea during Christmas week. It's about a 10 minute walk to local bus stops taking you to Bridgetown, the Gap, Oistins and further costing only $2 per person. It's located on Maxwell beach, which is clean with great waves to swim in. The rooms surround the swimming pools and at times can get a bit noisy with children playing, so if you're an older couple like us wanting a more quiet stay, this should be taken into consideration. Our room was a deluxe suite and came with a separate bedroom and a nicely equipped kitchen. We had a problem with our electric kettle not switching off automatically (safety issue) so reported it to the front desk; however, the receptionist never got back to us or sent a replacement. Also some guests below us we're smoking on their balconies even though the guest info book states smoking is not allowed in room or on balcony. As non-smokers we found this uncomfortable when we sat out. We reported it but got no feed back and it continued, so it seems the no-smoking rule for balconies is not enforced or taken seriously. Although we had a few complaints, generally it's a nice, clean hotel and I think ideal for families with children.

Nice hotel

Very pretty grounds and beach, lots of space, not packed together like sardines like sandals. Very quite in evening, only one or 2 at the bar so had to go elsewhere which is a shame as would be lovely resort to be able to go out in in the evening.

Rest and Relaxation Haven

Good location. Disappointed that there were no lifts, as my wife finds it very difficult and painful to climb stairs. Initially had been allocated a wonderful room on fourth floor, but had to change to ground floor. Best food selection was on lunchtime menu. Rachel in shop was excellent as was Jose in pool cocktail bar. Hired car for three days - most enjoyable and experienced all the sights and culinary delights that Barbados offers.

A lovely 40th birthday treat

Overall the hotel was very good. The restaurant I thought didn't do enough bajan dishes. To European for me. But overall a lovely trip in paradise.
