Overall good

Savannah, Georgia

This is a smaller resort compared to most Caribbean island resorts but I believe rather typical for Barbados. The rooms are clean as are the grounds. The food is very good and has many options for the buffets nights. I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. My only complaint is the servers. In the restaurants Uma and Sizzler they are wonderful, but in Reef they are less than desirable. Many meals I would get up to refill my tables water w the pitcher on the serving station. Getting refills is difficult. I wish the servers were kinder and I didn’t feel like we were inconveniencing them. At Colin’s there is a nice bartender, but Carson was a server who kept saying he would bring us drinks and then after 30 min not come by. But he would be clearly annoyed when we walked to the bar. For being servers I did a LOT of clearing my own drinks/glasses and plates to clear up my space around me. It wasn’t the relaxing vacation I would hope for after paying more than $500 per night I wouldn’t have to bus my own tables. Also, all restaurants were open air which I thought was awesome (but hot sometimes for dinner before the sun went down). I would go back but I would realign my expectations for the service I expected to receive. One day the green monkeys came by for a visit!!

Wonderful vacation!

Sugar Bay gave our group a wonderful experience, from the warm and friendly check in where we were handed a delicious island rum drink to the easy, speedy check out when we left to meet our flights at the nearby Barbados airport. The layout of Sugar Bay gave us a feeling of living on the beach in luxury. Located directly on the beach, the lobby, restaurants, and bar are designed in a pavilion fashion which allows the sea breezes and sounds to come through while we dined and drank. The swimming pool bar with its shallow water area and marble bar stools was a fun way to enjoy the warm, breezy sunshine and even an occasional light rain while playing in the pool. The rooms were clean, comfortable, had ample amenities, and great views. The staff were friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone wanting a safe, partially-gated resort on the beautiful island of Barbados.
