    We stayed at Silver Point Hotel (SPH) for CropOver/Grand Kadooment week. The hotel grounds including beach, scenery, boardwalk, ocean view, etc. was quite impressive. Loved the style of the hotel boardwalk, etc. However, I thought the rooms were pretty standard of a good 3 star hotel (not what I expect of a 4 star). The bathroom functionality was not nice at all. The wood fixtures look nice but wood and water does not compliment each other. Hence, some areas look rotted, scummy, rusted, etc. Even on our balcony doors were rust. We stayed in the loft style room which was pretty cool but as a frequent traveler--Ive seen much better. Our fridge wasnt even stocked with basics like water bottles, soda, etc. This is a 4 star hotel right and thats something 2 star hotels offer...wasnt impressed with the rooms. Maybe other rooms are better. We stayed in the primary building with the reception office. I dont know if the building across the street have better rooms or if the non-loft style rooms make a difference but I wasnt the least bit impressed with the rooms. Other than the 'partial' ocean view which was gorgeous for what we did see...the rooms were nothing to boast about. Anyways, in terms of the area (Christ church) its fairly close to the airport which was great for our 1st & last day -and it wasnt too close either where you would hear airplanes all through the night. We took the Zed-r-V vans numbered vans almost everywhere...only cost 2BBD/1USD which was awesome. The official (blue/yellow) buses are the same price. So traveling around is farely cheap. In fact, it was cheaper for us to take taxis/buses everywhere than to rent a car for our stay. The hotel restaurant wasnt impressive. I'm a bargin hunter so I felt prices were too expensive. Maybe you'll think otherwise. As for food, it was american with certain carribean dishes. I dont like going to another country only to eat the same food. I want to experience the country like a local which means eating local food, bajan food, not american food. So I wasnt happy about that. People who complain about not having american options in foreign countries need to stay home because it deficits the purpose of traveling and learning new things. hmmm what else can I add? The receptionist was helpful but only to a certain extent. Often times she seemed like she only wanted us to book activities through SPH which is understandable but if we can find better packages/prices else where obviously as customers thats what we're going to do. Other than that we never saw of spoke to employees because they were often unseen. Except for the wonderful, young spirited lady at the restaurant, I wish I remembered her name, but she was great. Recommended parties for us, and a few other places, how to get around town, etc. She was awesome. Overall, silver point hotel was average to me. I do plan to stay else where for our next visit not because its a bad hotel but because I would love to experience more from a 4 star hotel and perhaps a hotel located further north near st. lawerence gap, accra beach area. Good luck with your travels and I hope my review was helpful :)

    If you're not picky and not looking to be pampered, but just want some place nice to relax and unwind. This is the spot! The staff was wonderful, the location was amazing, and I couldn't have asked for anything better for the price I paid. This was a place a person could lose one's self! I had such a great time, it made coming back to reality... tough!

    I read a lot of reviews on the different hotels in Barbados prior to booking our 6 night stay. We were focused on seclusion and a smaller, quieter property. That is exactly what we got. Upon arrival we immediately upgraded to an ocean view room from the smaller partial view room we originally booked. That was a good choice. The room was much larger with a private patio and ocean view. The air condition in the room did not work very well, but we got used to it. The property only had 1 restaurant with mediocre food. The bar was not well stocked, leaving the bartenders little options for mixed drinks. The area outside the property was less than desirable but we overlooked that. The staff at the Silver Pointe was very friendly and accommodating. The beach was private and we enjoyed watching the Kite Surfers and Wind Sailing. I have traveled extensively and I would say overall it is a middle of the road hotel. We did spend a day using the beach at the Crane Hotel. For $25 US payable at the reception desk, you receive food vouchers you can use towards one of their 5 restaurants. (well worth it) Also once on the property you are free to use the marvelous beach and other amenities at the resort. We enjoyed dinner at the breath taking L'Azure Restaurant perked on the Cliff. Personally, I would spend the extra money and stay at the Crane Resort. Another word of advice...if you rent a car, opted to include a GPS for $5 US a day. The roads are poorly marked. Driving on the left takes some getting used, but we found the local drivers to be good drivers.

  • Excellent hotel for relaxation and surfing

    Stayed in an Ocean Front room (room 118) for seven nights (6/2/2012 - 6/9/2012). Everything was perfect. The beach is a few feet from the hotel and the waves are perfect for surfing. Theres a strong breeze constantly sweeping thru the south of the island so the heat was always bearable. The only possible downside is the hotel's remoteness. There are no restaurants/clubs near the hotel, but renting a car solves this. We rented a car for 4 days for $150 ($50 per day plus 1 free day) and had total freedom to go anywhere whenever we wanted. Bar: expensive, but the drinks were always massive and had plenty of liquor in them. Restaurant: expensive as well, but very delicious and large serving sizes. Beach: big, clean, lots of waves. Locals try to constantly sell you stuff which got annoying.
