Soak up the sun on either of the two white sand beaches or splash around in the sprawling complex of cascading pools surrounded by lavish landscaping. For amped-up fun, cruise on over to the on-site water sports center, Barbados Blue Water Sports, where you can check out snorkeling equipment or a boogie board for extra surf-time fun.
Let the kids find their own personal heaven at the Kidz Paradise Club while you enjoy the startlingly unfamiliar sound of silence. Don't feel too guilty, though; the kids' club has plenty to keep the wee ones gleeful, from Bajan games to treasure hunts and storytelling. They might even have so much fun that they won't notice when you slip off to the Hilton's spa, where an outdoor massage on the beach under a sunshade is the icing on a worry-free afternoon.
When it's time to eat, both of the Hilton's restaurants offer scrumptious choices sure to satisfy even the pickiest eater in the family. At The Grille the catch of the day reminds you of just one of the many benefits of vacationing near the sea: fresh and flavorful fare. For snacks, Careenage Bar offers Caribbean tapas and funky island drinks sure to get you in the island groove.
If you're starting to feel a little too indulgent, Hilton Barbados has a full-service fitness center with Precor fitness equipment and fun salsa and yoga classes. Or, for an additional charge, you can grab your clubs and head over to the Barbados Country Club. Want the crowning touch for a vacation to paradise? Book a boat cruise to Brown's Beach, where you can watch sea turtles in their natural habitat.

Fantastic beach & pools, nice rooms, pricey extras
LOCATION & ATTRACTIONS NEARBY *** Hilton Barbados Resort is located in the south-west corner of the island, on the outskirts of Bridgetown, approx. 30 min drive from the airport (longer if you take the coast road). Situated on a peninsula between two stretches of awesome beaches – one would be busy Brownes/Pebbles/Bayshore beach and on the other side very quiet and almost deserted Drill Hall Beach. The other attraction, Needham Point Light House was actually in front of our balcony. It’s also a walking distance from the George Washington House, the Clock Tower and the horse race track. There are some restaurants around, but not many shops (drinks/water/sweets/snacks you can buy at the petrol station 10 min away from the hotel). In front of the hotel there’s busy, but quite large complimentary car park. HOTEL OVERVIEW *** This is quite typical, large, corporate, business-orientated style Hilton. There are two main towers of the resort, good swimming pools & recreational area, fantastic beach (surprisingly not many guests go there), plenty of sunbathing and dining options. I like the swimming pools on two levels with many smaller bays and almost private areas for sunbathing. There are many sunbeds and beach towels are provided. You can have drinks from the bar attached and also staff will serve you on the beach if needed. I loved the beach I have to say… The sand is white and like powder and the sea was amazing. You can actually swim in that small bay (which is often a problem in Barbados due to strong currents). PURPOSE OF THIS TRIP *** Leisure RESERVATION *** Booked through Hilton.com – reservation also available in the mobile app. Contacted hotel to pre-pay in advance and this request was also met. LENGTH OF MY STAY *** 3 nights – May 2019 CHECK-IN *** We arrived quite early (far before the check-in time) and we’re advised to wait in the recreational area (swimming pools). Of course, we could use all the facilities and a text message would be sent to us when the room was done. At the end, we’re able to check-in earlier and get our stuff to the room. LOBBY & RECEPTION *** Large, busy open space between the main entrance and the pools on the level below. Very fresh and airy which is great if the temperatures outside are crazy high. There’s great view of the entire resort from reception and directions to all facilities are very clear. ROOM *** I have booked “Ocean View 1 King Bed with balcony” room and it was really good choice. Room allocated to us (#309) was spacious, spotless-clean and comfortable. We had a great partial view of the beach and the lighthouse just below our balcony (with 2 chairs and a table). That was great to wake up to the sound of the sea in the morning. Room was well equipped, which included of course flat-screen TV (I don’t think I used it, haha), coffee/tea machine, fridge (empty). No complimentary water. Air-condition was quite old, but efficient. I preferred to leave doors open as the ventilation was much nicer and the sounds of the waves and birds were really enjoyable. From the balcony we were also able to see the anniversary staff arrangement for the "100 years of Hilton" celebrations. BATHROOM *** Also, same as the room, stylish, spotless clean and fresh. Good quality toiletries were provided (Crabtree & Evelyn herbal/flowery collection). Loved the big mirror with the lights around. There was a shower and a small bathtub. BREAKFAST *** We were on Room Only basis, so we added breakfast locally but only for one of the nights. It is quite expensive (BRL 50.98 = approx. 22 EUR) and I don’t think it was really worth that money. The other days we went outside for some breakfast (10 min walk). Firstly, the breakfast is served in the Lighthouse Terrace Restaurant. I found the entire process extremely confusing and unnecessarily delayed. By the time we were seated (plenty tables free), we spoke to 5 different staff members “arranging table” for us… Hm… OK, if you say so. Selection of the buffet was all right, cold/warm meals, fresh fruit and juices, coffee etc. I was expecting (based on other 5* experiences around the world, incl. other Hilton hotels where you would pay similar price). So, if you can get a rate with breakfast included, do it in advance (or it’s complimentary for Platinum Hilton Honours). But again, it was only OK and it was quite amazing how staff was equally confused with the entire settings and guest seating arrangements. I still don’t get what was creating this chaos… I know, they advise of the possible in the welcome letters (I get this, but this was just wrong work organisation in my opinion). POOL BAR / RESTAURANT *** After this experience with the restaurant, we decided that lunches / dinners we will have at the pool bar (Waters Edge). This was far more casual and actually quicker to be served. Also, prices were much better and meals they served were delicious. We liked all our choices and I found the staff great and attentive (and they were not lost, haha). There is also some coffee point in the main lobby selling some sandwiches and of course coffee… Hm… I think this was the most expensive coffee I have ever had. That was quite annoying. INTERNET ACCESS *** Wi-fi was complimentary and coverage was also quite good, including the beach. CHECK-OUT EXPERIENCE *** As our flight was in the evening, we were again allowed to leave our luggage and use the pool areas for the day. All drinks / meals we were able to pay locally as well. The final bill was accurate and check-out was very efficient. STAFF *** Staff was lovely. Reception very helpful and managing very well with the constant flow of guests. They’re also informative and helpful when needed. The Waters Edge Pool Bar staff was lovely. They’re attentive and welcoming all guests with a smile. Even if on the beach, they’re checking if we needed some drinks or take some orders. Good, pro-active approach. The Lighthouse Terrace Restaurant staff was extremely confused and chaotic. Still nice and talking in a professional manner, but by the time we finished our breakfast, at least three people did the same work asking ‘how’s everything and do we enjoy’ etc. OVERVIEW *** Solid hotel and if booked with a right price, then it’s great. Try not to go with the basic rates (room only), as you’d pay quite a lot for extras. Upgraded rooms are also worth checking as this might be worth it and the sea view rooms are awesome. Beach and pools area are great, no ‘corporate feeling’ there at all. You can relax and completely forget that there’re few hundred people around you (as it’s so spacious and with remote spaces). Did I enjoy it? Yes! Would I recommend it? Yes! Would I stay there again? Yes (but I’d prepare / prepay for few things in advance or try to catch some good prices for meal packages).
For various reasons, my wife and I had an unexpected and totally unplanned overnight stay at the fabulous Hilton Hotel complex. We stayed in room 715 and had the most amazing view of the lapping water and golden sanded beach. Everything the hotel is top class although, for us, it’s just too remote. Additionally it comes at a significant financial cost. Just one last thing though, the staff we encountered during our short stay were efficient and organised but, perhaps, could have been just a little happier when interacting with customers - just a thought.
Recent 3 night stay at the Hilton property in Barbados was very nice. First thing travelers should know is this hotel is not right in the main city. Its about a 30 minute walk or 10 minute drive into Bridgetown and there is not many shops or restaurants right near the hotel. The building is not new but well maintained and the property is nicely laid out with a large 2 shore beach right in front. The room we had was large, bright, very clean and well appointed with a safe and mini fridge. Service was prompt and friendly. The hotel has 3 restaurants of their own that include a buffet, beach house grill and formal dinning area. Food and drinks are quite expensive so you need to know that ahead of time not to experience sticker shock. There are banquet facilities on site along with a fitness room and spa. All & all, we really enjoyed our stay, I would go back and would also recommend.
Beautiful Hotel and Island
It was a dream vacation! Beautiful hotel! We spent a couple of days at the hotel beach and had so much fun in the waves. We felt like kids. The rest of the time we walked around the island or took the bus and really experienced Barbados. It was perfect!
The Hilton Barbados is a wonderful property! The many pools, spa, fitness center, beach and view were superb! The rooms are very clean and very up to date, lovely shower! The staff at every level is so kind and helpful! Also, perfect location!
