Is Blue Haven Holiday Apartments a hotel?

We provide accommodations to residents and visitors of Barbados, however we’re designed more as an “Airbnb” meaning:

  • We don’t have a front desk. We provide all the information you need to check-in and make the most of your stay as soon as you book. We also provide the contact information for our operations host, reservations host and guard/caretaker so you can immediately message or speak to someone whenever necessary.

  • We don’t provide daily house keeping. We provide complimentary house keeping once for every 7 nights stayed and if you would like additional house keeping we would be happy to organise it for an additional US$20 (BBD$40) per cleaning.

  • We don’t offer concierge services (eg arranging a taxi for you). We provide the phone number of private taxis that you may choose to use, as well as other suggestions to help make the most of your stay in our House Manual/Guide.

  • We don’t have an onsite restaurant. Many restaurants/eateries are within close walking distance (as close as a 2min walk).

  • We don’t have a pool. Dover Beach is a 2min walk from Blue Haven.

  • Our wifi averages ~50mbps (download). Actual speeds will vary depending on specific locations throughout the building.
