The Blue Horizon is not a 5 star but its a very clean quaint hotel with all the amenities and close to everything. The best beach in Barbados is directly across the street from the hotel parking lot. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were very clean, beds very comfortable.

My wife and I ended up here 1 night when we flew in to meet our cruise ship after our flight to San Juan was canceled by JetBlue.

The room we got was very nice. The shower was truly Huge. It was a bit noisy though as we had a spot near the corner by the front street. Immediately across from us was a BBQ restaurant that stayed open late. We were only there for about 9 hours total but would be willing to go back. It's right by the beach and includes free breakfast. The breakfast wasn't anything great, in fact, it was worse than a typical Comfort Inn here in the States, but it was better than having to buy breakfast somewhere else.

Check in was a bit rough, but that was the travel insurance I think. They did not have an elevator. Our room was on the 2nd floor and that meant lugging our bags upstairs.

Room tip: Get something back from the street and away from the external restaurants

This hotel was a real mixed bag for me. I booked this hotel based on location and price. I booked the regular room. They gave us a room right at the back of the property, on top of the restaurant and backing onto a service area with a dumpster full of garbage...not so nice. The room itself was very basic, although it appeared to be somewhat renovated. A king bed, a desk, a small fridge, a TV and efficient A/C but no ceiling fan, no coffee maker and no safe. The room rate included a 'continental breakfast'. We tried it one morning and just left. The wait staff was rude, the coffee undrinkable, the OJ was 'Tang', the 'assorted fruits' were a couple of bananas and apples and the so called 'pastries' included a few pieces of stale banana bread. And for this luxe spread I had to sign off on before we left. I guess the management is worried that some people might eat breakfast twice..haha. Luckily at the Quayside Mall right next door, there is a nice little Italian coffee house where the coffee is drinkable.
The other hotel staff were all very pleasant and accommodating.
The hotel itself is very clean and public spaces very neat and tidy. The pool is smallish in size, but during our stay it was empty. The bathroom near the pool area was kept locked most of the time (?)
Rockley beach is right across the street, and there are several vendors who rent beach chairs and umbrellas. We paid 30BDS a day for two chairs and an umbrella. There are also some food vendors where you can buy some decent local fare such as fish cakes and flying fish and rum punch, and also the standard hot dogs and fries.
There are several restaurants in the area as well as a food court, all within walking distance.
I am not sure if I would return to this hotel. If so, I would definitely book a better class of room, depending on price, b/c at that rate, you can pick a much better hotel, such as the Accra across the street.

Room tip: Don't pick the lowest class of room.

The reservationist was a delight when I made my booking over the phone. 10/10

Location is very good- close proximity to both cheap eats and fine dining (walking distance, convenience store also very close by, ATMS very close & though not quite beach front the beach is less than a minute away. 9/10

When I arrived the initial reception I received from the front desk staff with lukewarm to say the best but they were professional and did their jobs. 5/10

Bellman was very friendly and helpful. 10/10

Housekeeping left a bit to be desired; strands of hair on towels, dust on the over head lamp and the tiled floor was also a bit dusty. 4/10

Wi-fi Signal came and went 7/10

A/C worked nicely. 10/10

Maintenance, had to call the morning because there was no hot water (let it run for a few minutes before calling.), the guy arrived almost immediately after I called fiddled with the tap and said that he would be back in 5 minutes- he never returned. 1/10

Check out- the friendly bellman from check in was present and asked how my stay was etc, the front desk staff took a call during my check out (did not bother to say excuse me) & stayed on it for the duration of the check out. 0/10

Pool looked clean but we didn't use it or the bar so I can't speak on that.

We stayed on the top floor- room 427 I think...I personally like it to be dark when I sleep and this was unattainable as there is a portion of glass/window high above the door that can not be covered so the moonlight and then sunlight came through.

At intervals during the night there was a loud mechanical sound but turned the tv on and we were able to drown that out.

Definitely won't be staying again, there are several hotels in the area that are a much better value.
