We have just finished 16 days at the hotel. It's not everyone's cup of tea - small with only 24 rooms and a very small pool. 100 yard walk to the beach in Carlisle Bay where the racehorses from the track go for a swim in the early mornings. Food is excellent and most rooms are OK - we had...

Have just returned from a 2 week stay at the idyllic Island Inn where we celebrated my 50th birthday.

We booked this well in advance and for my wife's 60th birthday. The hotel is converted from a small courtyard type building and has only 24 units. We were attracted by reviews and the thought that a small all inclusive restaurant would be much better than a large one. We were very happy with the room and with the staff....

Yes service at meals could be slow but you have to realise that this is Barbados time and just relax. I can't really add to what others have put so just read through the...

We visited Island Inn last year and were delighted and were a little nervous that the second time wouldn't be so good, but luckily we were wrong. The staff have to be the friendliest and most helpful that we have ever met and went out of their way to give a good service. The kitchen staff produced very good, tasty...
