Where shall I start, we have just spent two weeks in the Buick suite at the Lone Star. The room was large with a huge bathroom and shower. On the terrace which was also grand looked out over the turquoise sea where turtles were bobbing up and down and the birds were singing. Yes, it was pretty perfect.
The restaurant where we had breakfast every morning was a colonial view of ceiling fans, the sea and many staff all there to serve you. I could not find fault with any member of staff as they all wanted to look after you with a smile.
On the beach and throughout the day Kristian looked after us. He made our holiday and remembered each day that we liked coffee at 14.15. He could not do enough for us and is an asset to the Lone Star. Drew looked after us at the bar making the delicious cocktails each evening. Liesel checked on us daily to make sure our stay was comfortable, relaxing and we had everything we required. What more could you want.
The stay exceeded our expectations and we will definitely return.
Too many staff to mention but a big thank you to you all.

Room Tip: Buick room is the quietest and I think the best. Many guests who were staying there were disappointe...

We stayed in the Cadillac Suite as a family of 4, with 2 teens in the living room. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, with an amazing restaurant to eat in every day, beautiful views of the sea, and our room was wonderful. We had a few minor issues with the air con which the staff were happy to sort out immediately. The butler was a nice touch too.

Room Tip: Would definitely recommend the Cadillac Suite!

No other resort will hold a candle to the Lone Star. We stayed in the Buick. It exceeded our expectations for comfort, quality, and convenience. The king bed was comfortable, the bedroom and bathing areas were spacious, the outside balcony/deck were perfect when we needed away from the sun and the hospitality SUPERLATIVE! I loved that the resort was small and that we were not subsidizing the activities of other people. We had our pick of where to lounge on the beach. The other visitors staying at the resort were friendly, respectful travelers. Liesel, Kristian and Camille worked hard to book activities (golf, massage, personal trainer, catamaran, restaurants, drivers etc), answer our queries and checked in with us throughout the day to ensure we were having a great time. I will say that it was noticeable when Kristian had a day off. The beach service was not up to his standard because he delivers a rare level of excellence. We also missed his jokes and fun! We were able to swim out and snorkel without a tour, in order to see a stingray and a sea turtle. I do recommend buying fresh aloe vera at the beginning of the week from one of the beach vendors. It saved my skin. The housekeeping staff were timely, kept us stocked in toiletries and fresh towels, as well as bottled water. I would book for Christmas, but they are already full which made my heart sink. We cannot wait to return to the Lone Star. The staff have high standards, but they are not uppity or snooty. We slept like dead people and the room was quiet save for the sound of the surf. They are a staff comprised of fun, professional and caring individuals. My only quibble is that I am a coffee addict and there was no coffee maker in the room. I awoke at 7 am daily and coffee was not available at the restaurant until 8:30 am. I would have loved to have enjoyed my coffee out on the deck whilst my lover slept in. I would suggest having in room coffee or a coffee service set up in the restaurant from 6 am on. I researched a lot of places before choosing the Lone Star and we have absolutely no regrets!

Room Tip: All rooms have a spectacular view of the water.

Just got back from a Wonderful stay in the Buick room. The room was very large and the balcony was enormous with a perfect view of the ocean. About half the time we enjoyed our breakfast from the balcony. The staff could half not been better. Liesel helped us with renting a car, restaurants and a sail. Kristen (sp?) beach service was great. The snorkeling off the beach was good and a you can swim with a few turtles in front of the hotel. If we come back to Barbados we will return to this hotel.

Having travelled extensively and stayed at many lovely resorts on the Island of Barbados, The Lone Star Boutique Hotel is a real hidden gem! It really cannot get any better. The suits are spacious and very well equipped. Everything you would need for a relaxed, luxurious, hide away vacation. Every aspect of comfort has been thought of even a 'welcome' bottle of Rum Punch, bowl of fruit, tea/coffee making facilities. Preferential, beach front seating in the wonderful restaurant too. Just perfect. We are staying in The Shelby, a ground floor apartment with five other individually designed apartments - ideal for a large family vacation offering privacy and own space.
