Beach View is a stylish family-run hotel, set within landscaped gardens overlooking the west coast of Barbados with spacious suites which allow guests to self-cater. Separated from the picturesque Paynes Bay beach by a road, the property’s elevated location ensures stunning views of the Caribbean Sea.
There are 36 suites with one, two or three bedrooms, all furnished in an elegant yet tropical style with full kitchens and open plan living/dining areas. Most suites have ocean views from their private balcony while others overlook the swimming pool or gardens. Additional hotel rooms and elegant new villas are due to open in November 2018, all with modern finishes, fully equipped kitchens, en suite bedrooms and spacious living areas. Two new swimming pools will also be added along with a reception area, small gyn, small salon, spa and open air restaurant.
The property is ideal for couples, families or groups of friends who are looking for the flexibility of self-catering along with amenities such as daily maid service offering added comfort. The focal point of the hotel is the large pool area, where plenty of sun loungers surround the main pool and separate children’s pool.
A poolside cafe serves breakfast, snacks and lunches until early afternoon, plus a weekly Monday night barbeque. Gourmet frozen meals are also available for guests to purchase for added convenience, plus the hotel offers a basic pre-arrival fridge stocking option.
A rooftop bar is open three evenings per week for sundowners, promising amazing sunset views over the Caribbean Sea. Guests are invited to the weekly Manager’s Cocktail Party, where they can meet the staff and their fellow guests over drinks and snacks.
Just across the road from the hotel is Paynes Bay beach, where guests can sunbathe and swim, or take part in watersports arranged by the hotel. Plenty of excellent restaurants and bars can be found within easy reach of the hotel, or guests who wish to dine in their apartment can visit one of the nearby food markets. Local buses stop near the hotel and offer easy access to a range of destinations up and down the west coast.
