Barbados Hotel, Resort & Villa Reviews
Almond Beach Village 07/10/2003
Reviewers Rating: Excellent
We stayed at the ABV for 2 weeks - arriving back home on 7th June 2003. We had read a number of mixed reviews on this resort and we were therefore very anxious - right up until the moment of arrival! Upon arrival we were greeted by a steel band playing and friendly staff bearing welcoming rum punches. Our accommodation and indeed the resort itself did show some signs of wear and tear if you looked for them but there was also plenty of evidence that these were being redressed through a continual maintenance programme within the resort. There are various examples that I could give to illustrate how helpful and friendly the staff were eg complimentary cake provided for our friend's little girl's birthday and consistently providing dining facilities for our party of 8 when every holiday brochure stated that the maximum dining party was for 6 persons. Additionally, when our friends complained to guest services that their shower was not very powerful and that it was intermittently hot and cold, the shower had been completely replaced by that evening. The food served at all of the restaurants was to a very high standard, the Horizon being our personal favourite. The service provided at the Horizon, the bajan style restaurant and the Italian restaurant was excellent - the service at the Reef was not great - there definitely seemed to be a problem with the staff at this restaurant as they just didn't seem as happy, or as helpful, as the staff in the other restaurants. For daytime snacks & lunch there is also the BBQ by the main adult only pool which provides very nice food in even nicer surroundings. The area provided for the self service of soft drinks and ice cream could be improved ie cleaner and replenished more frequently. All in all we had a fantastic time at this resort and we will definitely be rebooking for next year!
