Historical Traveler Reviews Sea Breeze Beach Hotel Christ Church
Amemorable two weeks
We had a great relaxing 2 weeks. All the staff (except the sullen unhelpful lady in reception) were great. Good communication has to be 2 way, but it didn't work with her, so went to the duty manager who was fine. The sailing dinghies could have been in better and safer condition but they were OK for a bit of fun for the experienced. The complementary evening cruise and dinner on the Harbourmaster was very good.
The beach is quite small but very good. There is a lovely cooling breeze most of the time which makes swimming in the sea more fun.
Security could do more about the unlicensed beach vendors, on or two became a nuisance.
Shopping in Bridgetown just OK.
Sailing / snorkelling trip up west coast very good.
I never recommend to others, but I would say I would go back there.
Last message - Do not fly BWIA. As a world traveller, business and pleasure, the worst I've been on.
Spent two weeks at the Sea Breeze in November 2003. A very relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Most of the staff were very friendly although i thought the bar staff would have been more talkative with the guests - they always seemed to be having their own conversations. Great choice for all inclusive as the food was fantastic. It was a-la carte 4 nights a week, a buffet 2 nights and a barbecue on the Saturday. The a-la carte menu was as good as any gourmet restaurant i've been to.
Unfortunately both my wife and I piled on the pounds as we ended up having three course meals every night - but it was worth every mouthful.When we stayed there were two large wedding parties also there - one of 19 people the other of 16 so it sometimes felt you were more like a guest at a strangers wedding but not much we can do about that.
A staff member did say that large parties like this were very very rare.We went on two excursions - a cruise up the west coast on a catamarrahn and the jeep safari. Both were very good, the safari was excellent. It took us up the unfashionable east coast but the views were breathtaking. Also went to Bridgetown and i must agree with the last reviewer, the shops were ok but nothing special.Loved the island of Barbados and cant wait to go back to the Caribbean.ps apart from maybe one shower per day, the weather was brilliant - it was nearly 30 degrees every day.
We've found paradise at the seabreeze
in about four weeks we will return to the seabreeze for the third time.
this coming august we will be bringing our entire family for a pre-wedding vacation. we absolutely love the hotel, the staff, the food....everything. miss karen runs a fantastic dining room....breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. (all inclusive is definitely the way to go). gloria, nicola, joanna, oscar, ellerton, waple, hazel, renae....and everyone who works there will do their best to see that your vacation is a special experience. the bajan people are so warm and welcoming....we have found our vacation paradise...the search is over.
Just got back Nov 26, 2003. What a beautiful hotel. I would recommend this hotel highly. The beaches were perfect, very clean, no rocks, sand very white and pink at the water. We had a kitchen room and it was clean and in good repair. Didn't see any bugs the whole time at the hotel. Only the odd lizard. The pools are open till 9pm which was nice as we had our 6yr daughter with us. The restaurant was nice but I would recommend going all inclusive as the food everywhere in Barbados is REALLY expensive. The staff were really great, met us when we checked in with a drink. The weather was super, really hot and humid, great breeze all the time. The hotel really isn't close to anything, so taxi's to town 12.50 US to get to bridgetown, but the shopping in Barbados isn't great so it didn't really matter. There were very few beach vendors on the beach and we were not asked about drugs once.Took the lunch catamaran cruise on stilleto and it was great. Saw turtles, lots of fish, great lunch in a beautiful spot and the captain let my child steer the boat to the beach. She loved the snorkling. Took the island safari which was nice, got to see the other side of the island.
The beaches up on the west coast are not white sand. It is very brown, a lot like hawaii. We went to a few different beaches and honestly found the one at the sea breeze the best there was. The one on the bay to the west of the sea breeze was nice too. The Sandy beach hotel are is ok, a bit more to do than Sea Breeze but a bit busy also.The only thing I didn't like was the crabs that came out at night, but thats it.
It is a 5US taxi to the gap area, so not bad to have a quiet beach in the day and go in for other things in the evening. Although when I go back I don't know that I would ever leave the hotel. Barbados was beautiful, the water very warm and nice colours.
Wouldnt go again
I wouldnt return to the Sea Breeze again.....We went in January and I was sorely disappointed with the attitude of the management and some of the staff.......The hotel is owned by a Canadian couple who undoubtedly favour guests from their own homeland and the US and some of the Brits were looked down upon especially by some of the management. Incidents concerning the allocation of tables at evening dinner........we were non smoking and were always put in the top end of the restaurant where there was bright overhead lights or in the middle where people were walking past all the time. We repeatedly asked to be seated in the more romantic candle lit bit but were told no we had to sit there..............on the last night we asked to sit in the window in the first table as it was our last night...yes we got it but it had obviously caused upset to one of the more mouthy abnoxious guests.....
a brit by the way, who made it obvious she was meant to be sat there.Very unpleasant experience with Ants in the bathroom which were eventually sprayed after us asking for 3 days for something to be done.
Next time we return we are off to the west coast were the sea is less rough
Never again at the sea breeze!
seabreeze hotel is beautifull and all the staff brill. but do not go there untill they sack the asst. manageress. that person ruined our holiday by humiliating us in front of other guest by making us look like wanting something we were not entitled to.
2 trips which came free but she made us pay over 400 dollars. i intend to warn the world about the sea breeze"s assist. manageress, because of the injustice my wife and i suffered. i will inform everyone that i can, via the web.
Loved the sea breeze hotel
we have recently returned from 2 weeks at the sea breeze in barbados. BRILLIANT! this was the best holiday we have had in 31 years of travel! The food is excellent aqnd the staff charming . For a fun day out try going to Garisson Savannah for the racing.The only down side of the holiday was being bitten by mosquitos! , the local doctor soon sorted me out . Certainly not our last trip to Barbados or the Sea Breeze Hotel
I stayed at the Sea Breeze last November and enjoyed the holiday so much I'm going back for 3 weeks in December. The food was excellent, the staff very friendly and the hotel was exceptionally clean and tidy at all times - nothing was too much trouble for them.
Well named place
My mother (aged 77) and I spent a glorious week at the Sea Breeze Beach Hotel in late February. It is a quiet, family based oasis in Barbados. We were always glad to get back to the hotel from our forays into town and the highways and biways of the island. They don't call it sea breeze by accident. There was always a lovely cooling breeze throughout site. It is spotless, friendly and very much geared to the low key traveller. I intend to go back again whenever I can. Highly recommended.
What a great place to chill!!
We have just returned from Barbados , and stayed at the Sea Breeze beach hotel for the fourth time, well that says it all hey? Its fantastic...the staff are all so warm and friendly and the hotel is spotless and located on a lovely beach. Its the ideal holiday if you want to relax and chill if i can help anyone who is planning to stay there you can email me anytime and i will be happy to see if i can help.

The meal was fairly typical cruise fare, multiple courses, but smallish portions and a very expensive wine list, but the conversation was good.

Wayne remembers us from our fleeting visit this afternoon and is glad that we decided to return and bring the family with us. We sit at tables on the lower deck right next to the water. There's every chance that we'll be splashed by the spray.
