MoonRaker Beach Hotel

TripAdvisor Review
Barbados, Caribbean
Christ Church

Set within a backdrop of picturesque secluded bay near Silver Sands, the hotel is a south coast laid back haven on Barbados. This original iconic 6-acre surf resort is internationally of interest for its locale, in the heart of the kite boarding region of the island. The beachfront hotel features Surfer's Bay Beach Bar and Restaurant - a highly popular dining experience. Each of the airy beach-themed guestrooms bear individual decor interiors. The property is steeped in rustic charm and has become a firm favorite for travelers interested in surfing and stand up paddle boarding water sports, sport fishing, a Caribbean honeymoon and yoga.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

review

We stayed here for 4 nights in Feb 2022. We were initially unsure about whether to book as reviews were mixed, but ultimately were happy with our choice. Moonraker is essentially a collection of self catering apartments on the beach with a shared pool. There is a beach bar on site that serves a limited menu of food and drinks from 1400 til late (note, no breakfast!). The atmosphere is laid back and friendly...

When we stayed there was a group made up of a number of couples and also some families with children. The site is ideal, with access to a secluded beach. But aside from this, there is very little in the immediate vicinity and a car is necessary. Moonraker is not a hotel experience but is a great value-for-money option if the luxury West Coast hotels are out of reach. Far better than the slightly naff budget hotels in the area.

5* location and food

My 5 friends/collegues and I wanted somewhere local to the aiport that we could go to for a few hours prior to our flight. (5/2/2022). Seeing mixed reviews on tripadvisor we were sceptical but went anyway...

On arrival we couldn't believe what we were seeing. A typically Caribbean wooden rustic building, small white beach and turquoise ocean. Our idea of paradise!

The owner, his family and the staff were very welcoming and friendly.

FOOD- The rum punches were lovely (and strong). My veggie burger was absolutely amazing and served with salad and chips/fries. The rest of the group also enjoyed their burger meals. The brownie and ice-cream also went down very well with us!

The restaurant had a great menu, I was impressed with the veggie options available. Lovely atmosphere, caribbean and disco music playing. Fairy lights. Plenty of seating options.

BEACH- The beach was so natural and beautiful. Flour-like sand and turquoise sea. Which was a 30 second walk away from the restaurant. Grass area complete with swings, area for anyone to do activities like yoga.

We did not stay overnight but I think I will be back to stay soon after such a lovely relaxing few hours here.

Thank you to all the team for such lovely hospitality and a great day!

Nice "right-by-the-beach" laid back hotel

Review by 891PeterC Fregene, Italy

Well, it is not "a hotel" in its traditional sense. It is a little compound with a bar (Surfers' bar), a pool, garden,.. and a complex of some self-catered rooms/small apartments...

It is low-key, and friendly-laidback Caribbean style. It is located by the southern tip of Barbados, so always a good wind. It is right at the beach, at the end of a road, so very quiet and isolated. A bit of a walk to the next mini market, but easy to ready by taxi (about US$15-20 from Bridgetown). For me, it outcounts most of the other fancy (and far more crowded hotels) in Barbados. I loved the vibe at the bar too.

Great vibe

Had a lovely overnight stay. Great vibe to the bar, the food was excellent, and priced reasonably. We loved our little chalet, very rustic...

We didn't pre-order our breakfast, but Jae who was very helpful came to the rescue, with coffee and a cheese sandwich.

Great Vibe - would stay again!

Review by Skio3 Sardinia, Italy

My wife and 7 year old son stayed here for 10 days and had a very memorable and lovely time. Whether you surf of kitesurf (we don't), i think this is pretty sweet place, not fancy but rather rustic in the bajan sense, right on the waterfront (small beach with many others nearby). The owner Steve offered to take us to the grocery store the next day, he was quite caring and wanted us to have a great stay...

A bondfire was starter each night and it's lovely to hang out at the bar/restaurant. We rented a car which you can determine once you get there, for us it was helpful to explore parts of the island. They have a lovely pool which has a great vibe, like the bar which has live music on the weekend. When we visited, there were French, Swiss, Italians, Germans, and Canadians, a very international mix which added to the experience. It is a bit of self serve, and the time slows down in Barbados, which is also pretty great. Our son wanted to move here... We would go back! :)
