Going For Platinum Part 10 - Barbados and Hilton
The hotel features it's own beach front at Needham's Point and is about a 20 minute walk to the main township of Bridgetown. There are a couple of restaurants within a short walk, and a gas station at the end of the road where you can buy general items at a cheaper price than within the hotel.
The hotel features several food and beverage outlets as well as 24 hour room service. Room service mains are approximately 20 US dollars. I had a room service club sandwich and mango cheesecake on the first night.
The food was pretty tasty and arrived within about 40 minutes of ordering. Tipping was appreciated but I didn't feel it was absolutely expected.
The following morning I took a stroll along the beach from Needham's point into Bridgetown.
Unfortunately I was visiting Bridgetown on a Sunday, and almost nothing at all is open. It was quite a ghost town apart from a few tourists at a couple of open restaurant/bar's. I was hassled quite a few times by taxi drivers trying to take me places including one who offered to take me to a beach with naked ladies...
From about 5pm is Happy Hour at the pool bar with a lot of cocktails half price (about 4 to 5 USD each). Good value indeed and it was quite fun just sipping on cocktails and watching the sun set.
Overall I really enjoyed my stay at Barbados Hilton and I would choose this property again when visiting Barbados.
