8/10 Very good

The hotel has a nice relaxed, homely atmosphere. The food was good although did feel a little repetitive after a week. All the staff were good & some were excellent. I think the only point worth noting is the hotel was significantly more upmarket 10 years ago before Marriot took over. This upset some guests who had stayed in this time. However for me who had never stayed there before, I found the hotel good with nice rooms & lovely views out to sea.

This was our second stay at The House, the first being in 2018 before it was taken over by Marriott. Unfortunately we felt that the service and attention to detail had slipped during this time. We had a nice relaxing stay but felt that some of the staff (not all), appeared disinterested in helping with any queries we had. We had arranged for a car to collect us from the airport (which had been confirmed via email) but upon arrival there was no car and the hotel said they hadn't organised it. They offered to pay our taxi fare but no apology was given. We had to ask for the toiletries in our room to be replenished on a couple of occasions (which would normally be done automatically), and the bathroom looked as though it was in need of some attention.The lunchtime service was sometimes slow and on one occasion we waited an hour and a quarter for our food. We asked the waitress to check it for us but she just mumbled something and walked away. Overall our stay was enjoyable. The food and drink was very nice and the location is fabulous. However I think when the prices are this high the service should be impeccable.

2/10 Poor

Expedia your agents prioritising to celebrate what I can only imagine was a Christmas party over putting my cancellation request through to this hotel has cost me £929.00. For 7 weeks (since December 15th 2021), hours on end your agents have phoned me to the “back office” to investigate resulting in further weeks of emails “requesting a further 48 hours to investigate”. This has gone on long enough, your service is disgraceful. Even with proof from the hotel giving consent to void the booking if Expedia (being the third party) cancel it their end, as well as the hotel making direct contact with Expedia to give them the cancellation emailed you still didn’t make contact within the requested timeframe (12hours).

Thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing
Overall had a wonderful time at The House in Barbados. Staff were super-friendly and the food and service were excellent. Perfect position on the beach, and adequate space for all guests. Would have been nice for the island-wise famous Daphne’s restaurant to be open, but that will be re-furred and open again soon.

This is a very clean, quiet, and beautiful Ocean from hotel in Barbados. The staff is very friendly. They give me excellent recommendations for shopping and restaurant. Excellent places for couples. I will come back for sure.

The concept with ambassadors is NOT working. No one is motivated to help you, you can ask one for coffee and wait 5 min. and then ask another for coffee and again wait and then they bring you tea. At the breakfast buffet you had to ask for plates, glasses, food etc.not working. No tour disk and no tour manager to arrange for this, you can call a taxi and make a tour by yourself. The sand beach is not existing the island is an old coral so not a lot of sand beaches. The hotel is extremely quiet with no background music, we asked for this so we just had some background music. A lot of very good restaurants is around this area and we recommend you to these, specially Scarlet just across the street form the hotel better and cheaper that the hotel and the service is excellent. Please be aware there is an extra fee pr. person at check out for every day you stay at the hotel. Please note there is no elevator at this hotel only stairs. Not recommended for people with walking problems, short breath etc. and not possible to move around in a wheelchair.
