My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary in Barbados and could not have made a better choice than the Soco hotel. The staff was attentive and genuinely friendly and personable. One night when my husband's relatives came to visit us Christine made a point of coming over and introducing herself and talking with them. The food was incredible as well. Always hot and flavorful and a varied menu every day. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great holiday with the family , lazing around the pool ,swimming in the nice warm sea - complementary boat trips during the day to swim with the turtles .
Really good complementary wifi in the rooms and on the private beach. The Resort Manager "Jeff" was really nice , as was his concierge Charlene and the Gazebo bar manager Gilbert and Franz ( he's great fun guy , full of positive energy ) .
When we'd had enough of relaxing either Franz or Rico ( another great guy) took us to nearby restaurants and to pick up food supplies . The Yacht Club at Port St Charles was well worth the visit, as was the Lone Star restaurant which we regularly visited as it was up market for us adults , whilst also had a great kids menu for our young children.
What was also good was the readily available use of jet skis from Sebastian at $75 US per half hour ( great fun and half hour chunks worked out just fine when in need of an adrenalin boost ). Complementary use of the resorts paddle boards was great fun also ( the kids had great balance - unfortunately my balance not so good , so I stuck to using the resorts canoe and kayak which I found much easier ) . There was also a platform out at sea that we would swim out to daily and then rest whist laying on the floating platform - "most relaxing".
The best thing of all was meeting Will Smith ( yes , " Will Smith " ) at the St Peters Bay resort , meeting him was just so great as my family and I are huge fans of him :-)

A stay at the Sea-U gives you a completely different experience of Barbados compared with the upmarket glitz of the west coast and the all-inclusive fun of the south coast. The island's east coast, and Bathsheba in particular, is wild and unspoilt and Sea-U fits perfectly into this ambiance with its traditionally built wooden buildings and relaxed atmosphere.

Drinks at the GM's place was great! Nice location, don't be swayed by having to "cross-the-road". Excellent grounds and pool area. Like a mini resort. The 4 buildings create a nice "campus" feel and resort-y. Certainly not your typical chain-hotel.

We had our family of 5 members this was perfect location down the GAP , right on the beach , a great choice of restaurants, bars and grocery stores in walking distance. There was security guards on property from 6:00pm -6:00am the ONLY way to enter the building was with your room key so therefore felt VERY secure. The villa was tastefully decorated Cyrus did not miss a thing when it came to decorating as well. (smile) Central airconditioning in the bedrooms and living room the kitchen was equiped with all the modern stainless steel appliances and ALL the dishes, pots pans all included, PLUS a dishwasher. We had a 2 bedroom which had 2 full bathes. The property has a pool as well .

A truly wonderful hotel, where I enjoyed a very relaxing 10 days. The views are fantastic, the staff were really helpful and friendly and whilst this is not a 5 star resort, it has a lovely local feel about it, a nice change from the old chains.
