What We Love
- Exceptionally appointed studios and suites, three sparkling pools and tropical gardens all just steps from your door.
Things to Know
- Here, your options are endless. Savor island fare, visit Karma Spa or try paddle boarding for the first time.
Start your day with breakfast at Lanterns by the Sea restaurant. After a good meal, some relaxation is in order, so head over to one of 3 swimming pools. When you're ready to hop in, a full service swim-up bar offers you a variety of local drinks and refreshing cocktails. For families, let the kids run around in the separate children's pool, while you relax in the sunshine. If you're looking forward to the beach, go catch some morning rays. On the beach, you can relax under thatched umbrellas enjoying the tropical breeze, while the rest of the gang swims, tries boogie boarding or competes in a game of beach volleyball.
When you're ready, head out for a delicious dinner and evening drinks. As the day winds down, catch some live entertainment or enjoy the view from your spacious and well-appointed room as you discuss what to do tomorrow.

This has been a great find on our first trip to Barbados. The hotel was in a perfect location with St Lawrence Gap a 25 minute safe and easy walk away. We usually prefer sunbathing by a pool, but with the beach being on the doorstep, very spacious and always easy to get a good uncrowded position, we headed to the beach! The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Our room was modern, very clean and roomy. The beach bar/restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. The only criticism would be the price of breakfast; more expensive than lunch with a bottle of wine! Overall fab place and we will be back.
Beautiful hotel with amazing beach.
We have just returned from a 10 day stay at this Beautiful Hotel where the rooms were spacious and clean, and the staff extremely friendly. From the minute we arrived we were met with warm and friendly reception staff who answered every question with a smile. We had a junior suite with a view of the pool and the beach, it had a nice seating area and a good sized patio/balcony to sit on while listening to the sounds of the Caribbean sea or the music from the entertainment at night. Our rooms and towels were cleaned and changed daily, and again staff were very friendly and polite.. We chose continental style breakfast with a lovely fresh supply of fruit, yogurt, cereal, cold meat, pastries and plenty of tea and coffee.. The buffet in the Calabash restaurant was lovely and we would have enjoyed a few more buffet nights. The beach was fabulous with lots of room and no rush to book sunbeds as there were plenty available, a real bonus!. My husband made good use of the watersports on offer and this really made his holiday. Thank you to the staff who were very helpful. The grounds around the hotel were immaculate and you would often see staff clearing up leaves and ( bougainvillea )petals. We would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return in the not too distant future.
Amazing hotel with incredible beach!
We loved our stay at the Bougainvillea! The rooms are large, clean and comfy and we loved that it had a kitchenette so we could have breakfast/lunch in our room. The beach right outside the hotel is amazing and not packed, we got a chair no matter what time we showed up. Pools are beautiful too and nice and warm. We'd definitely return!
5/5 for the hotel: 3/5 for the Calabash
Nothing really to fault the hotel. Gorgeous location; great facilities; five star gym + spa and a very comfortable room. The beach stretches out to the right and the sand is perfect. Only reason for a four not a five star rating is we really struggled to get a smile out of anyone in the Calabash restaurant. Maybe it's because their menu is so limited and boring? Still, it's a shame as the reception, bar staff and porters were beyond charming. If management read this, some training please?
We are about to leave the Bougainvillea and head off home tomorrow after a lovely week in the sun. Set on Maxwell beach ,this hotel enjoys a great position and because it is not a sprawling hotel, like Sandals next door, it is intimate and offers good levels of services with well kept grounds. The rooms are of a good standard but for some reason hey don’t provide a dressing table for the ladies which surely is a must? Some lovely touches like cold flannels are provided on the beach and they like to go the extra mile if you are celebrating something like a birthday. Evening entertainment is of a great standard( especially the girl singers Virgo). Most of the staff are very friendly but Sue ,the customer relation team leader and her team (who are great) need to tell Donna and Gregory to smile a bit more ..the other house keeping ,bar, waiting and front of house staff do. Food in Siam is really good but not so in the Calabash restaurant where you can wait for up to half an hour for what is mediocre food. Happy hour at the swim up pool bar is a bit early at 3.30pm but they do good cocktails. The junior suites have a kitchen so you can make your own basic meals if you want to, but note due to the lack of some basic utensils i.e a chopping board or a sieve...it would have to be basic. It is only 5 minutes in a taxi to St Lawrence Gap and half an hour to the airport. Overall, it is a good hotel but just needs some basic improvements and we would go back no problem.
