Historical Traveller Reviews of Butterfly Beach Resort Hotel
barbados at its bestfrom A TripAdvisor Member
If you're after a decent, clean 3* hotel or self catering appartment as we enjoyed you should basically look no further. The staff are really pleasant. We had our bed made up every day and the room cleaned every other day. The rooms are spacious with good decor and the happy hour at 5pm was good value for rum punch cocktails. The pool is a decent size for a dip and cleaned daily. We never ate at the hotel as St Lawrence Gap is only a 5 minute bus ride away which again is another selling point in my view
The best thing about this place though is the beach. Last week there were no more than 15 people on it at any one time so it really felt like a private beach. You can use the sun loungers from the Sea Breeze hotel and the views of the ocean are simply beautiful. There is a lovely calm breeze and while the water is not the mill pond of the west coast it is far from choppy.
I have been to Barbados a couple of times and this was easily the best value for money place I have stayed. Go and enjoy the paradise!
a must stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The bus stop is 20 metres from the front door so you do not need to hire a car,bus fares anywhere are 1.50 (50p) even for the longest journey. A must for a excursion is Ted's tours round the island with Rum Punch & lunch included and Ted himself is a wonder.
So if you are looking for a home from home look no further.
paradise for a week - excellent hotel and staff - thankyoufrom A TripAdvisor Member
have only seen one view to compare with the one from the hotel here and it was in malaysia. the sea is green and the beaches pink sand - you do not need to leave the hotel!
staff are lovely, food excellent and all round fabulous value.
Great location, friendly staff, BRILLIANT!from A TripAdvisor Member
When you arrive you walk in to a nice quiet reception area & are met by very friendly staff who will help you with anything at all. The hotel of course is right on the beach, has a nice pool with lots of sun loungers, also there is three new jacuzzis which are great. There is a nice bar with an open air restaurant next to the water (be careful not to get splashed by the waves though!!)
Although the food is very good I would not have main meals (Lunch, dinner) because they serve very mean portions & therefore you will still be hungry! It is easy to get a cab to St Lawrence gap for around B$15 which is about £5 or jump on a reggae bus if you have the nerve for about B$1.50 which is about 50p, there are lots of great places to eat & drink there as that is where it all happens at night.
Ok back to the hotel again, the rooms are clean, tidy & spacious with balcony & en-suite shower room, we stayed in the new wing which has A/C & a ceiling fan, there is no TV in the rooms & anyway who cares when you are in Barbados!
The maids were very good & cleaned the rooms on a daily basis & always left fresh towels & made your bed with clean sheets....oh yes you also have a small kitchenette with cooker & fridge which is ok.
Overall I think this is a great Hotel & will certainly be returning to Butterfly beach next year.
Remember your insect repellant because the mosquitoes are a real pest. also at night you will have to listen to the whistling frogs & they are quite loud but you soon get used to them.
Everyone we spoke to at the hotel were quite happy with Butterfly Beach Hotel & had few complaints if any at all, if its 5 star luxury you want the you had better go to Sandy lane if you can afford it because this is not a luxury hotel, however it is very good value & very comfortable.
The location is great right on the south coast & not far from Oistins, the gap & Bridgetown & it is pleasantly quiet in the evening.
While you are soaking up the sun on the beach or the sun loungers you will almost certainly get approached by vendors trying to sell aloe vera, necklaces or even wacky backy, if you are not interested a "no thankyou" is usually enough.
Things to do:
Atlantis submarine trip is amazing.
Grenadines tour is simply paradise whilst sailing on an 80 ft schooner.
Barbados wildlife reserve in the north of the island is well worth alook, if you go at about 3pm you have more of a chance to see the monkeys.
Graeme Hall nature sanctuary is also well worth a visit & it is on the south coast.
On the west coast at mullins beach you can go out on a glass bottomed boat and swim with the turtles, what an experience that was.
The list is endless, if anyone has any questions then mail me & I shall do my best to give you an answer.
PS: Bottom bay on the south east has to be seen as it is truly breathtaking.
Car hire is around £200 PW.
Eating out is quite expensive but very tasty!
Oistins fish fry on a friday night is a great night out & the fish are really tasty, flying fish, marlin, dolphin (not flipper!) & a few others I think.
cannot believe the bad reviewfrom A TripAdvisor Member
p.s On one visit to this hotel, I was hospitalised for the whole of the second week of my holiday and was sent a beautiful flower arrangement from the hotel, only to be visited by the hotel manager, informing me that everyone was thinking of me and that if I needed to stay on in Barbados there would be no problem, they would ensure there was a room for me and my husband with them.
Keep up the good standards
Anne & Angus Ferguson - we will be back

Best Holiday Everfrom Rosiepeardrop
fantastic, great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The location is stunning only metres from the white sandy beach and clear blue sea.s . This is my 4th visit to the island in 5 years and will definatly stay here again. Forget Sandy Lane ! it isn,t worth the extra £23,000.
Nice Place For The Money !!!from A TripAdvisor Member
