The hotel is located at the north of the Island, by Speightstown. This is the 2nd largest city on Barbados (but it's still Tiny, Population around 800 people). The location is good, about 45 minute taxi from airport (around $50US). The resort is large but not huge, it takes around 5 minutes to walk from one side to the other. Food - 5/5 - lot's of variety, 4 restaurants offering a la carte food for dinner. Amazing fresh fish everyday, beach BBQs Drinks - 5/5 - All the main brands, lots of blended cocktails and some great Rum! Pools - 4/5 - 10 pools, so you'll be able to find one for you. some are loud/quiet, for kids or for adults so there is plenty of choice. Rooms - 3/5 - The rooms are the main variable thing about the hotel. THey are undergoing refurbishment across the hotel so some rooms could do with an update. Having said that, they are large and have the main amenities. Our room didn't have a fridge or minibar which was a surprise. Beach - 5/5 - Beautiful clear water and clean sand. Heaven. Watersports - 4/5 - Lot's of choice, Kayaks, Sailing, Pedalos, Banana Boat, Waterskiiing - you do have to get up early to book yourself in for waterskiing as it's very popular. Overall - 5/5 - One of our best holidays. Amazing Island, hire a car and take a drive to the east coast (the Atlantic Ocean is amazing).

What a find an absolute gem of a hotel. The general manager Roddy and his team make this hotel like a home. The hotel was purchased by Roddy's family in 2006 and it was closed for 2 years to be refurbished, all i can say is they have done a superb job. We found the public areas, the restaurant, the pool and the rooms to be pristine. If i was going to fault anything the air con unit being in the bedroom is a slight inconvenience as the lounge and bathroom can get a bit warm, but I am being picky here. The food at this hotel is stunning if you go full board be prepared to put weight on, we booked Bed and breakfast and mixed between eating in the hotel restaurant and cooking in the small but adequate kitchen in the room. However be warned Barbados is not a cheap place to eat out or buy food, so half or full board could be a good economic option. The hotel grounds are lovely and we only ventured to the beach on one occasion ( the beach is about a mile away and the hotel run a courtesy bus down and back). The Hotel has a great pool area which I think could be a bit busy if the hotel is full, we had no issue and really enjoyed our time around the pool. The Sugar Cane also has a gym, squash court and Spa, all of which are well equipped and i would recommend the massages. Overall we had a fantastic time that was helped by the Sugar Cane resort, the staff and the way they looked after us. We did get a tour of the 2 bed penthouse a couple of days before we left, had we seen it earlier in the week we would have upgraded. Having stayed in 5 star resorts around the world i would happily put the Sugar Cane up against them, an absolute find and we will return.
