Pros: The hotel is beachfront, nicely laid out, comfy, clean.
Cons: It does not protect the guests from taxi overcharging - the only country I've been to (and I've been to many) where taxi fare from the airport to the hotel is cheaper than from the hotel to the airport!! Taxi overall is expensive, and there are no cheaper alternatives for families.
Ocean waves were all the time too choppy to swim.

Cons: The hotel was quite aged. The room the put me in seemed very old. The ac was not working properly and it had a view of the dirt lot next door. When I checked my reservation I realized I'd actually paid for a room with a balcony and this did not have one so I called down to the front desk, they did not seem happy about this call but when someone came back they said they had a room for me. So they put me in a smaller room on the first floor, facing the street, but it did have a working ac and a balcony. Just not what I was expecting for the rate I paid! Everything seemed old, worn down and dingy.
Pros: We truly enjoyed the Accra Hotel. The location is great! We were steps away from the boardwalk. There are stores and restaurants in the immediate area. Transportation was 100 steps away. This hotel is very convenient. The housekeeping staff was very efficient. The grounds were well kept. It was truly a good experience. The beach was perfect
Cons: We didn't care that much for the food and it was a little pricey.
Pros: The hotel is located on one of the best beaches in Barbados and there is beach-side food and drink service for guests. We loved hanging out at the swim-up bar in the afternoons and the bartenders are very attentive and knowledgeable. The front desk staff was very helpful with coordinating taxis and tours.
Cons: The hotel itself is a little run down/outdated. The lounge chairs by the pool are mildewed, the paint at the swim-up bar is chipped/peeling, and the tiles throughout are a bit dated. Also my friend Cari used the spa one day for a facial and said it was good/fair, but she had an entire second day of massage, manicure and pedicure that was cancelled on her without notice. She had asked to just re-schedule the massage for another time/day and instead all of the services were cancelled. When she tried to re-book them, she was told there was no one there to do the services. Not sure if the spa techs are just on call or what? The spa seems to be disorganized and poorly run. Also $70 US for 2 people to eat at the buffet seemed high for the quality.
Pros: The location was perfect as a over night stay after our cruise.the front desk was on top of things, right down to making sure we had a taxi at 5:00AM to take us to he airport.
This 3 acre property is ideally located on a pristine sandy beach on the lively South Coast of Barbados. All rooms offer panoramic views of the island, pool or ocean.

The resort has also opened its very own Spa CHAKRA. Chakra Spa is a haven for relaxation, rejuvenation and healing. The spa offers a variety of body massage treatments, as well as manicures and pedicures.
Pros: Proximity to the beach is optimal, the service staff is amazing and breakfast is lovely. The ocean view studio is very cute and comes with a stove, plates and cutlery if one is interested in cooking for oneself. This was a pleasant surprise.
Cons: The pool is not the biggest, and after having stayed at Accra Beach Hotel it was just basic but this is not a deal killer. The beach that the hotel occupies is not the the calmest but this is the south coast of the island and that's what you get. The walls are a bit thin and some adjoining rooms might have guests that are sticklers for quiet and your noisy child might drive them crazy :) Other than those minor things, they're really no downsides to this hotel.

You received a drink of choice upon arrival and all staff (and even some locals hanging at bar/ restaurant) were very very friendly.

Pros: The facility was very clean and the grounds well maintained. I was pleasantly surprised at the state of the apartment that we stayed in, my 18 year old son and myself. It was in very good condition and quite comfortable. BREAKFAST WAS GREAT!!!
Cons: The entrance driveway was a bit rough and bumpy and the parking area was completely undone. It would be great if they at least paved the parking area.
This hotel is overpriced. They have a restaurant that was not even opened ao I had to take a cab into town just to get something to eat and the cab costs are a rip off. I was advised by the hotel it would cost me $15 each way to bw picked up feom the airport and dropped off the next day, but was charged $50 for the pickup!!! Might as well just get a regular cab as their driver is a crook.
Pros: Location, scenery
Cons: The restaurant was closed
