Dover Beach

We had a wonderful time at the resort! The relaxed atmosphere made for an amazing Birthday get away, the staff was most gracious and accommodating. Centrally located on St. Lawrence Gap was just a few steps away from the fun night life.We're already planning on returning in September...

Repeat guest but would recommend improvements

The staff are very friendly and accommodating and the rooms are adequate for individuals who do not need a lot of frills. The rooms are adequately clean but a threadbare in terms of needing walls repaired from the removal of fixtures and desperate need of a new shower curtain. The rings were falling apart and the curtain would not close properly as a result. Biggest complaint is the beach access. The path on the outside of the hotel is littered and strongly smells of urine. This path converges with the one off the pool and patio which can be treacherous to navigate. In the late evening the tide pushes the sand to create "cliffs" of sand that easily collapse. Best to go in the morning at low tide, however, the path is still not easily traversed by anyone with difficulties with walking or balance. In addition, the beach is public but the available chairs are for the sole use of guest of the adjoining resort. This is not explained by the staff, nor is it usually a problem, however, there are posted signs and it was rather abruptly brought to my attention on one occasion by security at the other hotel. At the very least, Dover should make a limited number of lounge chairs available to their guests for use on the beach.

Friendly Staff

The Dover Beach hotel had an extremely pleasant staff but the hotel didn't 'fit in' amongst the surrounding hotels. I spent most of my time at the Ocean Two hotel next door that could easily go up against a Four Seasons chain. The beach was nice and the pool was often times in the shade of the hotel so I couldn't really get a tan. The restaurant in the hotel had very limited options for lunch/dinner so I chose to go to Ocean Two's restaurant. The ground transportation that I purchased for round trip transfer to/from the airport was not worth it!!! I assumed it would be a private car picking/dropping off but it was a van and we had to wait for other people to fill up before we left. Additionally, my flight was early in the morning and they didn't even come pick me up!! The front desk security ended up driving me in his own car. And please keep in mind that when returning from Barbados you have to be at the airport at least 3 hours before your flight!!

Hotel Description

Dover Beach Hotel in Barbados: Laid-Back Vacation Heaven

Located on the southern coast of Barbados, Dover Beach Hotel is within walking distance of the famous St. Lawrence Gap where you can find restaurants, sports bars, nightclubs and entertainment. Best of all, you're still far enough from the hustle and bustle of the Gap so that you can get the peace and quiet that you need. Whether you grab a sun cot and stretch out on the sun deck by the freshwater pool, or stroll down to the beach for a swim in the warm waters, relaxing is definitely something you can do a lot of here.

When you're ready for some activity, walk over to St. Lawrence Gap, known for its duty-free shopping, great restaurants and exciting nightlife. When it's time to eat, go to nearby restaurant David's Place for authentic Barbadian fare or dig into fresh pasta at Bellini's Trattoria, both within easy walking distance of the hotel. After the sun goes down, let the beat of the Caribbean get you in the island groove at any one of St. Lawrence Gap's cool nightclubs. Dance the night away to reggae and the sound of steel drums, tap your toes to Calypso tunes or sit back and sip a martini while listening to Jazz.

The Barbados Golf Club is located close to the hotel as well. Originally designed by Col. J. Harris, then re-designed by Ron Kirby, this 18-hole course is not only beautiful, but it's also challenging. Other sports like tennis or squash are also available nearby. If watersports beckon, you can find opportunities for deep sea fishing or jet skiing within walking distance. Just let the friendly hotel staff know your interests, and they'll help your figure it all out.

Dover Beach Hotel also makes a great base for exploring the beauty of Barbados. Book a tour of Harrison's Cave, where streams and waterfalls flow through an exotic underground world. Or, explore island history at Holetown or Speightstown. Round out your trip with a visit to the Barbados Wildlife Preserve, where you'll have a blast making one more friend on the island - the Barbados Green Monkey.
