Traditional and charming, Butterfly Beach is a family-run hotel, popular with those who are looking for an affordable holiday to Barbados. It often attracts repeat business year on year. Expect to find warm and welcoming staff, a beautiful oceanfront setting and a lively, laid-back atmosphere without any pretences.

Nestled on the south coast of Barbados, Butterfly Beach enjoys a convenient and popular location. It’s close to Oistins (just one mile), a small coastal town which is home to the acclaimed ‘Fish Fry’. Here you’ll find energetic vibes every Friday night, as locals await their freshly cooked fish dishes. St Lawrence Gap – which is known for its abundance of bars, restaurants and boutiques – is also nearby (one mile away). In the evenings, head here to discover a hubbub of activity. Alternatively, if you don’t want to venture far, there are a few bars close to the hotel. You can always tee off at Barbados Golf Course which is a short bus or taxi ride from the hotel. Grantley Adams International Airport is just over five and a half miles away and Bridgetown, the island’s capital city, is of a similar distance (just over six miles).

The 93 rooms and studios on the property are comfortable and generously sized, although relatively basic. Decor is in harmony with the hotel’s cheerful orchid exterior – in some rooms you may find eponymous butterfly wall decorations and brightly patterned tropical curtains. Deluxe rooms offer solid wood furniture and rain showers in the bathrooms. All rooms include air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi, a refrigerator and a television and most have a balcony or terrace area. There are plenty of room options available which are ideal for self-catering, especially the Superior One Bedroom Apartments which offer a full kitchen and separate bedroom and living space. For the optimum views, it’s well worth booking an Ocean View room or studio so that you can look out on to the picturesque grounds and witness spectacular sunset views across the ocean.

A triple cluster of whirlpools can be found in a separate landscaped area, complete with sun loungers. At the main poolside you’ll find plenty of additional sunbeds, overlooking the lovely shoreline, and there are two access points to the rocky, sand beachfront where you can relax. A short walk either way will take you to two more beaches. Handy on-site amenities include a convenience and gift shop, activities desk, currency exchange and laundry facilities.

The hotel is making a conscious effort to be increasingly environmentally friendly. Local plants are grown throughout the property grounds to help support wildlife and you’ll also be informed of the green practices at the hotel, such as the towel reuse programme.

You can also take pleasure in socialising and sipping cocktails at the karaoke night, held once a week.
