Atlantis Hotel

This charming historic inn is set on the outskirts of raw and gorgeous Bathsheba, with a striking Atlantic coast and proximity to some of the Atlantic’s top surfing. Atlantis has charming rooms, a great pool and right at the top of the list of the island’s best restaurants, too. It’s one of our favorite hotels in the Caribbean, period.

Eat Your Way Around Barbados

Restaurant guide: eat your way around Barbados

Tuck in to flavourful Bajan-inspired food across the island from lavish high-end restaurants to in-the-know local favourites

Fine dining experience: book in at The Cliff for a memorable meal 
 

Food in Barbabos is as vibrant as the island and its people. And that doesn’t just apply to typical tasty Bajan food. Virtually every style of cuisine seems to be available in hundreds of restaurants, yet every dish seems to have been given a power boost in terms of flavour. 

This is down not only to the local produce – ripe, sweet fruit and veg and super-fresh fish in particular – but the chefs, who just love to experiment with different combinations of ingredients and spices. 

A number of chic restaurants in idyllic seaside settings command a lavish budget, but there are plenty of mid-range options and others that are excellent value. 

Here are some suggestions but you really can’t go too far wrong in Barbados. And don’t forget to try the nectar from one of Barbados’ four rum distilleries. 

 

West coast

Starting at the top end, The Fish Pot is in an old fort and serves up catches that come in to the neighbouring fishing community at Six Men’s Bay. The chef cleverly brings out the natural flavours and the setting is a delight. 

There’s more seafood at the rustic, homely Fisherman’s Pub in the pleasingly ramshackle Speightstown, along with grilled chicken with rice ’n’ peas. 

Nearby Juma’s combines Caribbean, French and Thai cuisines and has an inviting three-course menu that could include flying fish pate followed by thai green curry and rum and raisin cheesecake. 

At the eponymous restaurant on the beach at Mullins, you can sample fish cakes, steaks and salads looking out over a classic scene of palms and powder-blue water. 

Heading down into Holetown, you’re spoilt for choice. Sea Cat does British-style cod and chips, but you should go local and try amberjack, grouper or barracuda – or ask for a platter if you can’t decide. 

Plate of crepes with sauce, and garnishes on white plate

Upmarket Nishi presents top-class sushi and sashimi as well as bistrostyle main dishes. 

A little further south you enter the zone of glamorous waterside restaurants frequented by celebrities. 

Cin Cin by the Sea and Daphne’s are great but if you want one very special experience while in Barbados, book in at The Cliff. It’s pricey, so make the most of your evening by turning up to watch the sunset with a cocktail on the wooden terrace, overlooking the cutest little cove on the island, before taking your seat for dinner. 

Bridgetown sometimes gets overlooked for a foodie night out but there’s a decent selection of eateries here. Waterfront Café on the quayside is a good bet for succulent shrimps and live music and is apparently a favourite of Rihanna. 

It’s easy to work out what Lobster Alive offers at the top end of Carlisle Bay. The spiny crustaceans in the tank are flown in live from the Grenadines by the restaurant’s owner on his private plane. A medium lobster, enough for two, will set you back about £45. 

 

South coast 

A perennial hotspot in Barbados’ south is Champers, where generous portions of quality meat and fish – and divine desserts – can be enjoyed on the terrace above the waves. It won’t break the bank either. 

Tapas is making a name for itself with a choice of small dishes such as calamari and ceviche, as the name implies, or bigger plates of grub including West Indian curry. 

Blakey’s on the Boardwalk is reliable for gourmet burgers and hunks of grilled fish, while for lighter fare visitors are raving about the waffles and paninis at Bliss Café. 

The combination of Caribbean and Japanese cuisine at Naru (jerk spring rolls?) sounds odd but it is receiving great reviews. Plenty of thought has gone into the design of the restaurant, which is right beside the seaside boardwalk. 

There’s satisfying value at Shakers Bar & Grill, where a plate of catch-of-the- day in batter with chips and trimmings will cost less than £9. Washed down with a chilled Banks beer, that’s a tasty lunch. 

Harlequin is a St Lawrence Gap favourite, with tables out on the deck, jazzy background music and a menu that features meaty king fish, tangy pork chops and pasta dishes. 

Man and woman laugh togethe holding beersFor traditional Bajan fayre, the “fish fry” at Oistins is a must. 

At the east end of the south coast, near Crane Beach, is a modern take on the Bajan rum shop: Marco Polo. It offers a collection of classic dishes ranging from grilled mahi mahi to lasagne (it’s run by British expats), with locally-sourced ingredients. There’s a short but well-chosen wine list. 

 

East coast 

The wild east coast of Barbados inevitably has less choice, but the settings can be magical. 

The Round House, a historic inn, looks down on the palm-fringed shore of Bathsheba and has been going for more than a century. The coconut shrimp with vodka-lime sauce is recommended, as are the grilled fish sandwiches. 

Open to non-residents, the restaurant at The Atlantis hotel on Tent Bay is charming. It is well known for the West Indian buffet served on Wednesday and Sunday lunchtimes, though the a la carte menu is worth a look too. 

Casual Dina’s Bar & Café is relaxing with fishy staples, a house-special macaroni pie and friendly service. 

 

And in the middle… 

Much of central Barbados is rural but there are a couple of hidden gems here. Visit the lovely 17th-century Sunbury Plantation House and its horse-drawn carriage collection then dine on calypso chicken or a choice of fish. The Sunday buffet lunch is something of an institution. 

Drive around the lanes of inner Barbados and you may come across Judy’s Watering Hole at a crossroads. One of the most revered rum shops, it is perfectly placed for grabbing a box of grilled chicken, rice and okra along with a cool beer.

East Coast Nature Walk

Barbados is more than just a sea, sun and sand destination!

In 1881, a railway was opened offering a service from the east coast of Barbados to Bridgetown. Primarily used for the transportation of sugar, produce as well as passenger services, the train ran for approximately 53 years with various stops and starts due to maintenance issues as a result of the salty sea spray from the Atlantis Ocean and changing Management several times. 

The Atlantis Hotel was one of the first hotels on the island as a result of the train service as it provided a "staycation" opportunity for "city dwellers" to escape to the rugged and peaceful east coast of the island.

Atlantis Hotel circa 1883

Discover more of the history and untouched beauty of the east coast of Barbados on our weekly, East Coast Nature Walk. 

Enjoy a guided tour from Bath Beach to Tent Bay along the old railway tracks followed by a Welcome Drink on arrival at The Atlantis Hotel followed by our famous, West Indian Buffet Lunch.

The tour is available every Wednesday starting at 9.30am. The cost is US$75 per person and includes transfers to and from your hotel, the guided tour, lunch and use of the hotel pool and loungers. Moderate fitness recommended as the hike is approximately 2 hours long.

Stunning Views!

Ericeira is one of only 8 areas in the world to be given status as a World Surf Reserve due to its abundance of surf breaks, all within 10 kms of each other!

The Atlantis hotel, Barbados: review

Tent Bay, St Joseph, Barbados.Show on map

The Atlantis, in the Caribbean, is a Barbados hotel offering colonial-chic decor, friendly service and renowned Bajan buffet lunches.

Rooms from £120
 
 
The Atlantis, Barbados: hotel review
 

Rooms are elegant, understated and comfy

 
 
Destination expert

Fred Mawer lives with his family in Bath. His travels take him to the Caribbean every year, and he has been writing about the islands for the Daily Telegraph and other publications for more than 15 years.

 

Why go?

Dating from the 19th century, this historic seaside property on the undeveloped and beautiful east coast reopened a few years ago after being rebuilt and revamped with a stylish neo-colonial look.

Best hotels in Barbados

Location 

7/10

The hotel lies in the seaside hamlet of Tent Bay. Locals tend to fishing boats in various states of repair in the boatyard yards away. A seaside path takes you to the striking, sandy, surfers' beach at Bathsheba in the next bay in ten minutes. Bear in mind that it's very quiet out on the east coast, especially in the evenings. 

 

Style/character 

8/10

Think colonial chic, with white shutters, darkly polished pine floorboards, photos of Barbados of yesteryear, and yachting prints. Outside, there's a decent sized, kidney-shaped swimming pool. Both the restaurant and rooms are popular weekend boltholes with locals. 

 

Service

7/10

Very willing. The hotel is owned and run in hands-on fashion by Andrew Warden, a friendly Aussie who also has the well-regarded Little Good Harbour and Fish Pot restaurant on the west coast. 

 

Rooms

8/10

Ten in all - elegant, understated, comfy, some with four-poster beds. Several bedrooms look directly out to the ocean through French windows, with the bed aligned with the view, but note that as there are no curtains on the windows, in these rooms you are likely to wake up very early. While rooms in the main building are without a terrace or balcony, two large apartments in a next-door building have their own outdoor spaces, with rocking chairs. 

 

Food & drink 

7/10

The Atlantis has long been famous for its Bajan buffet lunches - and it's keeping the tradition going on Wednesdays and Sundays. Otherwise, there's a mix of appealing international and local dishes on offer, and prices are reasonable for Barbados. Lunchtimes attract day-trippers, and are generally much busier than evenings. 

 

Value for money 

9/10

Double rooms from £120, including breakfast. Accommodation this stylish would cost much more elsewhere on the island. Stay for five nights, and the fifth night is free. Free Wi-Fi is available. 

 

Access for guests with disabilities?

 

No. 

 

Family friendly?

 

Yes - though beaches on the island's other coasts are a lot more appealing to children. 

 
 

East Meets West Package featured by Blue Bay Travel

Barbados isn’t just what you see in the glossy leaflets. There’s a flourishing island underneath the media that’s filled with astonishing landscapes and hidden holiday gems. However, the search off the beaten track can sometimes feel a little daunting.

The good news is we’ve found the best way for you to enjoy the real Barbados, and it’s a neat little package known as East Meets West. In 7 glorious days you’ll see the highlights of the East Coast and the West Coast of Barbados. Here’s what this unique holiday involves:

•   4 Nights in a One Bedroom Garden Suite at Little Good Harbour
•   3 Nights in a Coastal or Ocean View Suite at The Atlantis Hotel
•   Daily Continental Breakfast
•   Dinner nightly at The Fish Pot at Little Good Harbour, one of the best restaurants on the Island
•   Dinner nightly at The Atlantis Hotel
•   3 Day Car Hire, so you can explore the island
•   Prosecco in-room on arrival at 1st hotel
•   Welcome drink on arrival at 2nd hotel

So, lets break down East Meets West to see why it’s our recommend gateway into the real Barbados.

beach-view

Little Good Harbour and the West Coast

Little Good Harbour is the honest Barbados, set within a restored 17th century fort in the fishing village of Shermans. There’s a charm to Little Good Harbour that can’t quite be captured in words, but I’ll try regardless. It’s one of the few remaining family run hotels in Barbados, so the hospitality has a distinctly welcoming feel that eludes many modern holiday destinations. Most West Coast hotels are new, polished, commercialised Goliaths, and despite their generally excellent facilities it’s deeply refreshing to see a truly Bajan hotel that still delivers unprecedented excellence.

The all-suite format adopted by Little Good Harbour, coupled with the fabulous tropical garden view with glimpses of the ocean from your terrace (or balcony), creates genuinely peaceful island escapes. Fully equipped kitchens give you as much independence as you like, and four poster beds add a palatable touch of finesse in keeping with the hotel’s colonial origins. The East Meets West package serves up 4 nights in a One Bedroom Garden Suite, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the facilities and see the sights on the west coast.

While we’re on the subject, the west coast of Barbados is awash with trendy bars, exquisite restaurants and stylish boutiques carrying many of the world’s leading retail brands and luxury goods, so you can get a taste of the new Barbados alongside thetimeless charisma of Little Good Harbour.

The Fish Pot

Unlike most hotel restaurants, The Fish Pot at Little Good Harbour is famous in its own right. The Fish Pot built its reputation on an unyielding commitment to fresh food and local seasoning, with a special interest in seafood. The open-air seafront setting adds a tang of saltiness to the air that vouches for the promise of freshness, including speciality dishes such as Lobster ravioli, pan-fried Mahi Mahi, and oven-roasted Sea Bass. The views are spectacular, and the coral stone walls help to distil an unprecedented level of calmness. This quest for culinary supremacy has earned The Fish pot a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and seen it named among USA Today’s 10 Best Barbados Restaurants.

The East Meets West package includes 4 Meals at the Fish Pot, one for each night of your stay. How many other hotels can serve up award-winning beachfront dining? Not many, take our word for it.

The Atlantis Hotel and the East Coast

The Atlantis Hotel is as boutique as it gets, with just 10 chic ocean-facing suites. This East Coast hotel, sister to Little Good Harbour, overlooks the powerful Atlantic Coast. Dating back to 1883, extensive refurbishments saw The Atlantis Hotel reborn in 2009 as a sequestered hideaway; a place where you can see Barbados from a new and dramatic perspective. The East Coast is distinctly different from the rest of island, distinguished by its rugged terrain and lush hillsides. Smaller, colourful villages like Tent Bay (home to The Atlantis Hotel) come framed by coconut trees and banana plantations. It’s a great place to explore, for the landscapes and local towns are full of opportunities.

Just imagine throwing open your bedroom shutters to the rugged Atlantic coastline or ocean waves, before slipping back into the luxury of your four poster bed and watching the Caribbean sunrise. The Atlantis Hotel knows how to create unpretentious luxury and empowering exclusivity, and your 3 nights in a Coastal orOcean View Suite will be spent enjoying the lay of the land and lounging in the pool  - or even surfing, if you’re the adventurous type.

The Atlantis Restaurant also has a bit of a reputation as the place to enjoy a Sunday lunch, with a wine list personally selected by the owner to ensure quality. Much like The Fish Pot, the chef takes great pride in using locally sourced seafood and meat. The East Meets West package treats you to dinner nightly at The Atlantis Restaurant, so you can end every day with a good meal and a fine beverage. Life doesn’t get any better.

Free 3 Day Car Hire

The free car hire included in East Meets West is a real gift. Barbados is remarkably easy (and safe) to get around, and the H2 highway makes the north, south, and west of the island very easy to access. The eastern side of the island is peppered with smaller, country roads renowned for their stunning exotic views. There are a number of quality road trips you could can keep in your arsenal:

•  See the beaches beyond Bridgetown: Foul BayBottoms Bay, and Crane Bay – the latter widely considered one of the best beaches in the Caribbean.

•   Go Speightstown, home to the Arlington House Museum and some classic Bajan architecture, and pass through the rolling sugar cane fields to reach St Nicholas Abbey, the island’s oldest plantation house.

•   Head east to Bathsheba and have your breath taken by the strange shapes of thesea-weathered rocks, and then head a little inland to the Andromeda Botanic Gardens.

Also, don’t be afraid by all the honking that goes on: car horns are often used as a way of saying “hello” or “thank you” to other drivers, so don’t sweat it.

Discover the real Barbados

If you want to get a true feel for Barbados then you should seriously consider the East Meets West package. You can make that dream Bajan adventure a reality, and you’ll see things from parts of the island that even the tourist guides scarcely know.

The real Barbados is within your grasp Holidaymakers, so make it happen.

“Boston is one of the most affluent states on the eastern seaboard of the United States and it presents an opportunity to diversify Barbados’ tourism business beyond the current US gateways.  We look forward to continued strong cooperative marketing efforts with our partners at JetBlue to ensure the success of this new service”.

 

As at April 2015, Barbados’ arrivals out of the USA were up by 27.4 per cent.

 

The weekly Boston-Barbados flight will complement JetBlue’s existing daily service from New York JFK to BGI, which was launched in 2009. The flight sale is scheduled to commence on May 1, subject to receipt of government operating authority, with an introductory fare of only US $149 one way for travel from November 7, 2015 until April 30, 2016. JetBlue Getaways will offer customers heading to Barbados the opportunity to bundle flights and hotels, as well as with their car rentals and other amenities and activities. Four-day, three-night packages will start at US $345 per person at Courtyard by Marriott.

 

JetBlue’s flights to Barbados will be operated on a 150-seat Airbus A320 and will offer the airline’s award-winning service featuring assigned and comfortable seating; free Fly-Fi, the fastest broadband internet in the sky; complimentary and unlimited name-brand snacks and non-alcoholic/soft drinks; free, live DIRECTV® programming and 100+ channels of SiriusXM® radio in every seatback; and the most legroom in coach (based on average fleet-wide seat pitch of U.S. airlines).

 

 

 

The Boston-Barbados flight is the fifth new Caribbean seasonal service launched from Boston in the last year following Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR); Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic (POP); Saint Lucia (UVF); and Port-au-Prince, Haiti (PAP). JetBlue also recently announced it would offer its highly successful Mint experience between JFK to Barbados on Saturdays between November 7, 2015 and April 30, 2016, and daily between December 19, 2015 and January 4, 2016.

Guest Reviews

The Perfect Place To Get Windswept

This hotel is slightly off the beaten track but an ideal base for those who want to spend a few days in peace and quiet. Not much of a beach and swimming in the sea not advised unless of course you enjoy surfing, in which case you are in heaven! The hotel has its own pool and a lovely restaurant with stunning views of the Atlantic coast.
