4/10 Fair

The place was very tired, We used it as a quarantine hotel but there was no room service. Breakfast was included but menu limited (4 choices) and lunch was available --around 4 choices and had to be ordered at breakfast. One facecloth was so worn it had a hole in it. No fitted sheets and the bottom ones tended to come unstuck all the time because they were not very big--probably not the most sanitary. The telephone broke and it was our only communication since we were not allowed out of the room. We need it to order dinners and to check for our results. It was replaced fairly promptly once we made the problem known. The toilet broke and the part was completely rusted--the repair person had to go to the hardware store for a new part. The staff was friendly and helpful and it is possible some of my review is due to the frustration of being stuck there for 6 days because our test results took over 100 hours to come back. There was a small balcony where we were able to eat, which was good because there were no table, only a pretty narrow desk in the room and a couple of bedside end tables. We took a very small low coffee table type plastic table from the hall and moved it to the balcony to put food and drinks on when we were eating. The hotel could have made it nicer by putting larger tables on the balconies in quarantine rooms. At one point we were the only customers.and when we left there were no customers. Air conditioning worked. Hot water worked in the bath/shower.

8/10 Very good

All the staff was pleasant and helpful, from the front-desk staff to the kitchen staff to the bell hop. They ensured that I was comfortable and checked in on me if I did not order food from the kitchen to ensure that I was taken care of in terms of meals. I did not particularly like the bathroom area. It was a bit rough/worn. The rest of the room was fine. The pool view was really calming and pleasant. Overall, yes, I would stay there again and I would recommend it to others as well.

Sunbay in Barbados a treat!
The hospitality at Sunbay was extraordinary. A friend of mine was able to stay with me for the week at no extra cost. The only caveat is the dining room. It seems to be quite rudimentary although breakfasts were always excellent. Our plan was to eat at other areas in Barbados anyway. Swimming and relaxation were super!

This property was poorly maintained and older. The wi-fi was the worst ever!!! The staff was sour-faced and not too friendly. I paid for a partial ocean view and could not get an internet signal. The replacement of towels was even problematic. I did not witness the housekeeper using any cleaning products to address the bathroom.

Our trip to Paradise
Our stay in Barbdos was excellent, due to an excellent hotel experience. The staff at rhe Sunbay hotel were very professional, polite and helpful, especially the assustan manager Mrs. O'conner who assissted in arranging all of our tours, which we thourghly enjoyed, she went out of her way to ensure we had got the best of what Barbados had to offer, taking into consideration cost and time. We will definitely be returning to the island in the future to enjoy more Bajan hospitality

Quiet area, however, the daily construction before 9am was a disturbance for those wanting to sleep in.
