"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more" may have been the valiant words resounding in Phil's ears when he decided to go into battle with his old foes Mount Gay, Banks and Blue Sapphire. His recent defeat at their hands just a few nights ago had not dampened his resolve and just like Henry V he was determined to fight, no matter what the cost.

... to get some cash out we were dropped off at Mullins Beach, I had seen this mentioned in tourist information and wanted to have a look. We had lunch in the beach restaurant and then spent an hour or so on the beach. I went for a quick swim checking out the coral, although it just looked like bare rock to me, maybe you have to go out further. The water was lovely and warm.

Down the main street there were lots of stalls selling lots of different things – clothes, leather goods, sandals, souvenirs, wooden carvings and childrens toys to name but a few. Then there was a huge array of cooking stalls ...

Speaking of the Fish Pot, we had to enjoy this lovely little restaurant for lunch. It’s right on the beach and has delicious food.

It could have been my imagination, or perhaps wishful thinking, but a familiar ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Little Arches Boutique Hotel Christ Church
We have just enjoyed a remarkable stay at Little Arches. We booked the accomodation purely on the reviews set out on this website and are so glad that we believed them! On arrival, we were treated to complimentary Cheese & Wine on the rooftop of the hotel at sunset - it was here that we first enjoyed the most outstanding service - intimate and attentive, yet in no way overbearing. This theme was to continue for the next week. 'Moo', the canadian chef is a star. Incredibly pleasant and humourous and quick to treat you to one of his infamous 'Moolicious' cocktails. The food at the restaurant (Cafe Luna) was outstanding - We can highly recommend the sushi on Thursdays. The room was excellent. Looking extremely fresh and colourful and situated right on the edge of the pool. Vere, the hotel manager, could not be more helpful and accomodating. We also enjoyed a complimentary luxury sail on the catamaran 'Silver Moon'. An excellent day (helped by the fact that the boat only takes a max of 12 passengers). The hotel is situated 2minutes walk from 'Miami beach'. This is a small and beautiful beach with white sands and a gently shelving incline into the azure water. A small but very nice touch is that the hotel provides beach chairs for you to use on your day out. The hotel is situated on the edge of Oistins (famous for its Friday night fish-fry (do not miss it - great food, great atmosphere)) however, we recommend you hire a car, this is the best way to get to the other 'must-see's' on the island (Crane beach, Sandy Lane beach, Bathsheba etc.). We have never contributed to a review site before, however we have had such an amazing stay at Little Arches that we felt compelled to tell you about it.Part of us is saying 'no, don't tell the world, keep it to yourself'. However, we benefited from this site, so here is us, giving back. GO THERE, it is truly EXCEPTIONAL! Sophia and Ian
My wife and I just got back from five nights at Little Arches. When we first arrived, we were a little disappointed with the location -- very residential and directly under the landing flight path to the airport.However, when we left, we didn't want to go. The Hotel is very charming, the food is spectacular and the beach was the best that we had found on the island. We made a trip to Holetown to check out the resorts and concluded that Little Arches was the best overall experience provided you don't need to go anywhere or you have your own transportation. Public transportation (taxis and buses) was frustrating and/or expensive. Our bus up to Holetown blew a radiator and we ended up walking for a while and then taking another bus -- the driver felt compelled to blast hip hop to the point that we had to get off again.
Little Arches Hotel offers an experience in attention to detail. From its excellent location, wonderful staff and relaxing atmosphere to its rooftop restaurant of amazing cuisine the effect is magical and lasting. I recommend it highly!

Wonderful ambience, staff could not do enough for quests, food excellent, rooms way above average, will definitely visit again, Emer & Michael O'Connell, London
Worth the Stay
A wondrous little find. My girlfriend and I went for an after the bar exam holiday and this was just the place. The hotel is located on Miami Beach on the south shore and is the only hotel on that beach. It only has 10 well appointed rooms and a wondrous staff making your stay all the better. Moo, part owner and chef, is a delightful host. We could not have asked for a better place. If you want intimate, this is the place to be. BTW, try Mr. Delicious' snack bar on the beach for a flying fish sandwich and a coconut punch.
A very special place
I had the most lovely time at Little Arches recently. Just wanted to let anyone wanting a really special place that it is the place to go.
I have noticed in recent years (I go to Barbados at least once a year) that the larger hotels offer nothing but the same old thing, they have gotten quite complacent in terms of offering mediocre food and service.
However Little Arches was like a breath of fresh air. The staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were wonderful; each room different from the next and the restaurant was great. We loved it and recommend it thoroughly.
We can't recommend this hotel enough. Everyone was amazingly helpful and friendly and did everything they could to make it a memorable stay.
The peaceful location was superb, the staff were brilliant- Moo was incredibly accommodating and will cook anything to order. We loved the daily happy hours from 4-6pm to indulge in the fantastic cocktails- still making the Blarney Stones now we're back. The decor was beautiful and individual. The fact that this chic little hotel has only 10 rooms is a definite bonus- it never feels overcrowded and we found it often feels like you've got a fantastic villa all to yourself with staff attending to your every need. What could be better?
It was the perfect honeymoon- a great place to unwind! We can't wait to go back! Amalia and Rick
Just thought I'd write a short review to any of you out there who prefer to stay at small, friendly places rather than the big resorts.
We just got back from a perfect 10 day stay at Little Arches Hotel.
We have just returned after two weeks at "Little Arches", a brand new 10 room chic retreat Boutique hotel. The owners, chef, reception right down to the two lovely maids were all fantastic. Food provided by Mark is outstanding, the whole experience is exellent. They are even re touching paint in the rooms as soon as people check out. If they keep this standard up I am sure they will be fully booked all the time!! If you like peace and quiet, style and very lovely people then this is the place for you. If you visit Barbados then visit "Little Arches" this is the best Boutique hotel on the Island!! Michelle and Mark!!
