Infinity on the Beach wasn’t my first choice of accommodation in Barbados, but it should have been. Instead, we arrived to a ramshackle apartment block which wasn’t the warm Caribbean welcome I had dreamed of. However, I won’t sully this review with that terrible experience. Moving on to better things…
Heaven is Infinity on the Beach
If there was ever an image to make you want to stay at Infinity on the Beach, this is it. Set in the south coast of Barbados, Infinity on the Beach occupies an enviable location right on beautiful Dover Beach and in the heart of St Lawrence Gap. The 3 star, 66 room hotel features two pools, a beachfront restaurant and bar, laundry facilities and can arrange watersports such as snorkelling, windsurfing and kayaking.
Infinity on the Beach was exactly what we needed to complete our relaxing break. Our last minute Booking.com ‘Secret Deal’ included a ‘standard oceanside twin room’ (there are two buildings to the hotel and only one overlooks the sea) and yes – unlike our previous apartment it did actually overlook the sea! It was literally right on the beach and at the risk of sounding like I’m exaggerating (I’m not), it felt like heaven.
Our room was spacious, clean and air conditioned with comfortable beds, balcony and a huge TV (although who goes to Barbados to watch TV?). The bathroom, although a great size, was in need of modernisation to match the rest of the room but this was only a minor complaint. We had free WiFi, accessible from our sun loungers on the beach!
We had already dined at the onsite restaurant Sea Fans which we enjoyed so that was our breakfast plans for the week sorted too. Turns out they did a pretty excellent full English breakfast (yeah, I ate this every morning. It was amazing). I also got a bit too used to the lunchtime happy hour and after dinner Mudslides…
The reception staff in particular were very helpful and were especially great when we wanted to arrange a last minute tour of the island, phoning round all the companies and securing us a fantastic 4×4 jeep tour.
I would absolutely recommend Infinity on the Beach if you are staying in Barbados, for the incredible location alone – considering most people go to Barbados for the beaches, you can’t go wrong with this hotel. Book your stay at Infinity on the Beach now!
- 5 nights at Infinity on The Beach in December 2015 would’ve cost £792 but thanks to Booking.com Secret Deal we paid £396
