Pros: They hotel was close to local markets and beach.
Cons: When i first arrived, no one was on site. I had to call to locate my room and key.I don't think it was the hotel's fault, but I thought I paid for 4 nights instead it was only three nights charged to my card. I left early so it worked out.
For the price, it cannot be beat. It's nothing fancy, but it was perfect for us. It's in a great location, close to everything, the beaches nearby were wonderful. No complaints whatsoever!
Pros: Great location, and the room had a kitchenette so it was nice to be able to have a few meals in. The staff was absolutely awesome and so helpful.

Pros: Location was nice for walking to restaurants
Cons: Would like to have had a coffee maker instead of instant coffee in room. Breakfast menu needs to be improved. Daily buffet would be so nice. the restaurant location is beautiful but underused because of its menu.
Pros: The staff were great, helpful and friendly. The breakfast is actually a great value as well, since food in Barbados is generally very expensive. We stayed at Infinity twice, first when we arrived into Barbados, and for our last night. We decided to return to Infinity because after traveling around the entire island, no other hotel offered the same value for the money. For the same price elsewhere, we were staying in shabby rooms located in far to reach places without a car. In comparison, the Infinity is a breath of fresh air. It simply has everything you want/need on your vacation minus the stress or cost. If we ever return to Barbados, my boyfriend and I would use the Infinity as our base for our entire trip.
Cons: The pool isn't all that, but we didn't even think to use it with the beach just steps from the hotel. It would have been nice if we didn't have to pay for an umbrella on the beach. That really should come with the chairs. Nothing other than that.
