The 9 Best Hotels to Please a Tight Budget in Barbados

Jane Zarem | January 16, 2018

Caribbean vacations can be expensive, but Barbados is fortunate to have inns, hotels, and resorts to meet most any budget. The west coast is called the “Platinum Coast” for good reason, but several lodgings on the south coast or east coast are very affordable, whether an inn, a guest house, a hotel, or a full-service resort. These are the cheapest hotel options in Barbados.

Sea-U Guest House

Why it made the list

Tucked away on a cliff overlooking the ocean on the island’s east coast, this laid-back spot has a few nicely furnished rooms and suites surrounded by trees and tropical foliage.

Why it made the list

Rooms at this south-coast hotel may be “no frills,” but nearly all of them face beautiful Hastings Beach just out front. That’s a huge draw. Also, all rooms have a small kitchenette—and kids under 12 stay free.

Savannah Beach Hotel

Why it made the list

While The Savannah’s location is convenient to Bridgetown and the Garrison Historic District—and the value is notable—the beach here is not the greatest. The lagoon pool that flows through the courtyard just outside the rooms, however, is a pretty neat way to chill. And it’s just a 5-minute walk to magnificent beaches on Carlisle Bay.
