Not to mention the perfect cleanliness of the guesthouse, excellent references to entertainment and... More

We stayed at the guesthouse when travelling to a friend's wedding. The place was very clean, very simple, and had all necessary basics. Guests have a little lounge area and a balcony with patio furniture, and can use the main kitchen. Considering that the island's beaches are public, we were able to enjoy the island at minimum cost compared to... More

Barbados is amazing...and when you are staying only a minute walk from one of the best beaches on the island, you are bound to have a great experience! Staying at Guesthouse Dover was a lot of fun.

I stayed at Guesthouse Dover with my boyfriend this January and we had such a great time! I had read about Brigitte's properties on TripAdvisor and got the impression that she cares a lot about her business and the island - this impression was reinforced by how helpful she and Stephanie were in the weeks leading up to my trip....

The "guesthouse" is clean and in a great location close to the beach and "Scotties". The patio upstairs is the perfect spot for our early morning coffee.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A home away from home. Best value for money in Barbados. 2 minutes to beaches, restaurants, hotels, sports, water sports just a stroll away. We have the most affordable accommodations in Barbados is furnished in Caribbean-European style. At this beautiful flat we rent 2 bedrooms a small yellow and a darker blue medium decorated room. There is a shared small living room upstairs with a balcony which has own SAT TV, MP3 player for guests. Coffeemaker, toaster, fridge for the 2 rooms and a shared kitchen downstairs. Bedrooms have fans, mosquito screens and the windows are tinted to keep the rooms cooler. Air-conditioning available at extra cost. Sometimes companies show that I don't have any availabillity but I do have. Check and look for barbados minus r e n t a l s point and then the com for actually space. Our accommodations are all in the favorite location of Saint Lawrence Gap which is a preferable area for visitors. There are many hotels, restaurants, beach bars, bar, discos, mini marts, shops, banks and the night life of Barbados just in 5 minutes walking distance. We have the nicest white powder fine sand beaches of Barbados in this area. Our accommodations are still far enough away from the night life area to avoid disturbance through loud music. Many repeat guests. ... more   less

“I know the room with the king that can be made into singles is very small- don't know about the other rooms. The area is quiet- except for the T.V. on late into the night. Probably want the air conditioning as theres no air flow - plus drowns out the TV noise!!”
