Christ Church

The Hotel is located in the heart of Barbados' south coast, offers an adult only all-inclusive holiday in a boutique environment. Ideal for the discerning traveler looking for a modern and high quality hotel facility. The Hotel provides an uncluttered chic holiday. Great food and drinks, friendly service and one of the best views in Barbados are all part of the experience. 24 ultra-modern style rooms designed with a blend of South Beach style and Caribbean flair. White leather bed heads, sofas crushed bamboo and veneered furniture. Provided a light, fresh, modern. All rooms are air-conditioned and boast stunning ocean views. Friendly service and a 24 hour front desk will ensure you are well looked after.

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

Amazing location

My holiday at the Soco was fabulous,i had made friends with the other guest due to a lovely Rumtasting that we had one morning by Michelle in the Bar this was so much fun we learned about the Rum,history of barbados etc.... it was just brilliant, BTW and yes Michelle I bought the Mount Gay XO as you suggested.

Food The Chefs were great they always new what I wanted and how to prepare it for me. Special mention goes out to Michelle at the Bar for that fabulous morning, and the lovely girls in the restaurant. Anytime you decide to go to the Soco ask for Michelle Rumatsting ,we decided at the Rum tasting that's she's like a pocket rocket so that's what we called her.

We are back in barbados but this time at another hotel as we are on business ,but Soco hotel will be our no1 for leisure and friendly staff.

Outstanding Hotel - Staff Are Amazing

Just finished a ten day stay here at Soco Hotel, Barbados and cannot recommend this hotel enough. The staff are so wonderful and really made our holiday. The bar staff even did a rum tasting session so guests would experience true Barbados...

The food is 5* with the chef who did everything perfectly and exactly how we requested. The cleaning staff are fantastic. The care, attention and kindness of the staff made our holiday even more special.

Inhumane Conditions/Treatment, Fraud

Review by SunTraveller2022 Florida

We checked into the Soco Hotel on 30 Mar 2022. Our experience was nothing short of awful.

  • We tested negative for Covid, but were still placed under quarantine and were instructed not to leave the room.
  • We were informed we would receive complimentary room service...

However, we were not given a menu and the telephone in our room was not functional. We reported this to management several times, but it was not fixed.

  • Because our telephone did not work, we had to leave the room to go to the front desk to both remind them the phone did not work, and to request food service. We were then chastised for leaving the room.
  • I was 10 weeks pregnant at the time, and on the first morning - having not received a menu and no one sitting at the front desk, We went to the restaurant to get breakfast. A manager later came to the room to remind us that we were not allowed to leave the room for any reason. I again requested a working telephone and access to food and drink.
  • The hotel was very dirty, not maintained, and sits right next to a very noisy road. We took a video (unable to load the video to this site). Persistent honking that did not cease day or night; there was no “rest” or sleeping for us.
  • Even though this hotel mandated masks for guests (understandable), many of the staff did not wear a mask or wore it under their chin. We took several pictures of staff not following their own mandates.
  • We paid over $1750 to stay here for three nights. We certainly had an expectation that it would be clean and a positive experience for us overall.

On the second day of our 3 night stay, we made the decision to depart. The lack of access to food, clean drinking water, no telephone, and downright mean nature of the staff left us no other choice. My husband flagged down a staff member who was able to call a Manager not on property. When advised of the conditions causing us to check out early, she apologized and offered a refund for the remaining two nights of our stay.

They never processed the refund. We followed up directly with the hotel and with Hotels.com (how we booked the reservation) and The Soco Hotel refused to respond either to phone call or to email. We’ve opened a case under my AMEX Platinum card also. To date, we have yet to receive compensation for the early departure or any response to our awful experience. To make matters worse we were on our honeymoon, yet were treated like we were inmates in a prison. (And I do not make that comment to be dramatic - I was in tears.) AVOID this hotel. I will update this review if they decide to respond to us, the booking agency, or Amex to make this right.

Soco Hotel not what we thought it would be

We just came from a week at Sandals so we were coming off a great vacation. The website does not share what you should expect from this resort. All inclusive does not mean all inclusive with a few items...

I will start with the positives. The staff are awesome. Very friendly. From the moment you walk in everyone is cheerful and smiling. We were not happy with our original room as it was right behind the check in desk. You could hear phone conversations and the cars on the street. They did move us to a higher floor. The food was good but very limited for each meal. 3-4 options for apps 3-4 choices for entree. The liquor selection was bottom shelf and I mean really bottom shelf. No wine or champagne at the bar. Only select wines with dinner. They didn’t even have cranberry juice. That is not the fault of staff at all. They did the best they could. The beach was covered in seaweed, again not their fault. It is still on the Atlantic side so it is rough. We went to the boat yard each day to enjoy a gorgeous beach. They didn’t even put bottled water in the room. You had to ask and they gave you two bottles. There were a few other couples that were happy with the hotel. We would not stay here again, again, not the fault of staff at all. They and the food were the two good spots about this hotel. Special shout out to Michelle, Shane, and the taller Michelle (that’s what she goes by!)!

Soco hotel and the island

Review by paulwX9619XW Lasswade, United Kingdom

The hotel needs a lot of TLC, the rooms seriously need it, most of the staff are really pleasant especially the bar man Shane and Michelle in the restaurant, don't trust any of the men on the beach selling things definitely not to be trusted, I advise on car hire as you get to see all of the island at your own pace
