    This is by far the worst treatment I have ever received at any Marriott owned facility. The wait staff here is terrible. I had ordered a drink from the bar (mind you it’s all inclusive) and the waitress said I don’t feel like walking all the way to the bar to get it. I was Appalled that she didn’t want to DO HER JOB. My room was also flooded after I was downgraded upon arrival. Shower did not work, newspaper in drink and no telephone in room. If you can book somewhere else.

    STILL waiting for a partial REFUND because we checked out TWO days early! My experience in Barbados was the most traumatic experience of my life. I am going to explain in depth because it is important to let other Americans know NOT to travel to this country! My girlfriend and I booked this vacation for our birthdays. The booking agency stated that we would only need a negative PCR test to enter the country. Upon arrival we were asked for PCR test results and vaccination card. (Which wasn’t required on the booking agency). Neither of us are vaccinated, and when trying to explain that on “CheapTickets” website that detail wasn’t included the customer service at the airport became very aggressive and hostile towards us. We immediately told them that we want to go home to the United States because the treatment was intimidating and scary. I’m which they told us we needed yo check into our hotel and quarantine for 5 days (which is impossible because our stay was only 3 days.) when we got to the hotel demanding a full REFUND the service didn’t get any better. We weren’t allowed to leave the room, and where fed our food in boxes and had a specific menu to choose from even though the trip was all inclusive. It felt like we were prisoners abroad in this country because of not being vaccinated. And treated like second class people. By far the worst experience of my life.

    This property was comfortable and nice. We enjoyed our stay and the room was nice. The food standard varied a lot. Breakfast was the most consistent but lunch and dinner lacked quality and taste. The drinks were all of pure quality compared to the standard of drinks we normally consume. The only exception was the Carib beer. Some staff were really professional but a few other had a scowl on their face and weren’t warm and welcoming.

    Very good overall experience. Earlier and more timely dinner reservations would be a potential improvement.
