Barbados Hotel, Resort & Villa Reviews Reviews
The Escape Hotel and Spa 07/14/2004
Reviewers Rating: Excellent
We had a fantastic time here (all 14 of us) and could not fault the hotel at all. The service from Virgin and all the staff at the Escape was superb, and we could not have wished for a better holiday.
The hotel is all-inclusive with a buffet breakfast and lunch and a la carte most evenings in the main restaurant. There is also another restaurant, which is open for lunch and evening meals. The food in both restaurants is great and you could probably never eat the something twice on a two-week holiday. The drinks that are included in the all-inclusive package are great; the house wine was really drinkable, as was the house beer.
The beach is OK if a little small, however as all beaches on Barbados are public you only have to walk around the corner to find a perfect stretch of deserted sand. You can walk for quite a long way in both directions along the beach before you can go no further. If you walk to the right from the Escape's beach you will eventually reach a point were the sea reaches the cliff face. It is possible to wade through the water and reach the beach the other side and eventually reach Bridgetown (the capital) although you should be prepared for crabs large and small covering the rocks and at one point you will have to walk through a small cave waste deep in water with crabs crawling across the ceiling a couple of feet above your head (great fun).
We stayed in the deluxe rooms, which had the best view you could possibly hope for. Some of our group stayed in the spa rooms, which although they did not have the view, were just as nice as the deluxe rooms inside.
There is really very little not to like about the Escape and I would highly recommend this as a safe bet for a holiday to the Caribbean. It easily out does most accommodation in this price range.
As stated above we travelled with Virgin and the flights were excellent. Each seat had its own TV with around seven films playing at the same time. There were so few people on the plane (747) all fourteen of us could have sat at a window seat or slept across a row of three seats for the whole flight.
All in all a superb holiday and we will all be going back as soon as possible.
