Great in every way
Another wonderful holiday at the Sugar Cane. It was great to be back after a two year break. A lovely warm welcome, cooling cold towel and rum punch was the start of a fabulous two week break. The room, food, gardens and pool were all very good as usual. It was so nice to see so many of the staff that we knew from our last visit. They all work very hard to ensure that you have a great holiday. We went out and about on the buses from Speightstown and made use of the hotel shuttle as well as walking to the beach at the bottom of the hill. All in all we had a very enjoyable holiday and look forward to our return.
This was our first hotel stay on Barbados, we normally stay in a villa in the south of the island, but thought we'd experience a hotel for a few days for a special birthday. We didn't regret it. The hotel was spotless, great service, good food. Some might not like not being on the coast, but we had a hire car and only a two minute drive from the ocean. A good relaxing few days, and we'd certainly go back.
Fabulous Holiday From Start To Finish
We have just returned from a two week holiday to the Sugar Cane hotel in Barbados. I have to say that our time spent there was exceptional. From the moment we arrived we were looked after. Karene and Leo welcomed us with a cooling rum punch. The check-in process was quick and efficient, and the hotel having previously been asked by me, placed a retirement banner and fizz in our room to welcome us. As this was my wife’s retirement holiday. The rooms are a good size and are clean. The air conditioning was perfect considering the heat we encountered in Barbados. The room itself was cleaned every third day which makes a lot of sense. The hotel itself is quiet with about 56 units which meant that there was always plenty of room around the pool and acquiring a sunbed in or out of the shade was never an issue. The food provided by the hotel was truly fantastic. The pepperpot was exceptional and I can understand why the chef would not want to share the recipe!! The service provided by the staff in the hotel was 2nd to none. Gregory, Tamishea, Sharon, Alice and Junior in the restaurant were always so welcoming. Xavier managed the pool bar with help from Ricardo and James. The cocktails and cool beers kept flowing. Michelle on reception was always helpful. The hotel ran an excursion on a glass bottomed boat each Wednesday and we took the opportunity to swim with turtles and stingrays. Tremaine ran a shuttle service throughout the day up and down to Speightstown. Our holiday included a complimentary 30 minute massage in the spa which was wonderful. We were all inclusive. However this did not mean that there was a constant unlimited supply of food and snacks throughout the day but that did not bother us. Breakfast was more than good, lunch was served either in the restaurant or by the pool and dinner in the evening was the choice of two restaurants or on a number of occasions a barbecue around the pool. I could not fault the food or service. The general managers Jacob and Geoff were very engaging and spent time providing very useful information about what to see and do on the island. We actually met the hotel owner Mr Weatherhead and his wife who was very nice to us. Entertainment was provided on a number of evenings. One in particular, Alan, who is a one man band performed on Thursdays. He was rather cheesy but great entertainment! We toured the island using a hire car which is the best way. A three day hire for us only cost 300 barbarian dollars. We used a car hire firm called MAH. I would encourage you to use the bus system also including the reggae bus. It is an experience! $3.50 for any journey regardless of distance. The WiFi in the hotel and on the island generally was really good. Connectivity was never an issue. The sugarcane hotel is quiet in comparison to some of the hotels in Holetown which is about a 20 minute bus ride away. If you’re looking for peace and Tranquility and a place to relax and eat well then the sugar cane is the place for you.
Finally the holiday happened!!
Just returned from our 3rd visit to Sugar Cane Club (our happy place!!) We had postponed our holiday for 2 years so this was a long time coming. We have to accept we are in a post pandemic world and did notice changes but accept this is likely the new norm. Missed not having manager’s cocktail party as in previous visits but hopefully once restrictions are lifted these can once again be started especially as they have new management team. The staff make this place so special and being recognised on our first dining experience really made our day. There are so many staff that we could mention that went above and beyond but a few name checks.. Gregory,( always cheerful at meal times) Tameshia,( always goes above and beyond) Xavier,( made the best cocktails and never seemed to stand still) Kevin the pool guy, ( always made sure out sun beds were ready) also Ricardo, Rashid and Leeann also provided exceptional service. Food is still great with a varied menu for 4 evenings at either Le Salsa restaurant or Chattels and 3 nights are buffet nights. Just a small criticism - we are not buffet people and last time we had option of dining at the 2nd Chattels restaurant but sadly this was not the case this time. Room is serviced every 3 days but should you want extra towels you just need to ask! Grounds and gardens are well tended to. People do mention the more older guest ( not that I am that young!!) we discovered that Saga do list this hotel as part of a Caribbean itinerary with a sister hotel in St Lucia at certain points of the year. Sugar cane is a real family feel hotel and every guest new or old is part of the extended SCC family. We will definitely return in the future.
Amazing and relaxing hotel
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday. Please book here. All the staff are fantastic and couldn't be more pleasant. The food is amazing. After two years of waiting, we had the most amazing time. Loved that the management also are easily available and talk to all the guests. Thank you Sugar Cane Club for an amazing two weeks. We will be back 😁
