Escape Hotel and Spa Prospect Bay Barbados by Virgin Holidays is a perfect choice for those seeking an affordable all inclusive hotel with style and fine dining.All of our staff members are very proud of their hotel and are pleased to attend to your every need. Being Bajan, they are naturally friendly and courteous. We truly believe that you will remember their names and faces long after your stay. If you need assistance, or just want to “lime”, our staff will be there to provide an unforgettable Escape.Escape Hotel and Spa Prospect Bay Barbados by Virgin Holidays, overlooks the lovely deep sand beach of Prospect Bay, set upon the St. James coast. The hotel enjoys an enviable position, as no other hotels share the beach, leaving you in peace to relax and explore.On our beach, you will be able to lose yourself in either the sea or the sand, with our offshore swimming deck, sun chairs, kayaks, snorkelling, sailing, beach volleyball, windsurfing, sunset meditation, and more. Even if you would prefer to read your book and leave the sports to the others, we know it will still be thirsty work, so you will always be able to get a drink or two at our Rum Shack.

We had a fantastic time here (all 14 of us) and could not fault the hotel at all. The service from virgin and all the staff at the Escape was superb, and we could not have wished for a better holiday.

The hotel is all-inclusive with a buffet breakfast and lunch and a la carte most evenings in the main restaurant. There is also another restaurant, which is open for lunch and evening meals. The food in both restaurants is great and you could probably never eat the something twice on a two-week holiday. The drinks that are included in the all-inclusive package are great; the house wine was really drinkable, as was the house beer.

The beach is OK if a little small, however as all beaches on Barbados are public you only have to walk around the corner to find a perfect stretch of deserted sand. You can walk for quite a long way in both directions along the beach before you can go no further. If you walk to the right from the Escape's beach you will eventually reach a point were the sea reaches the cliff face. It is possible to wade through the water and reach the beach the other side and eventually reach Bridgetown (the capital) although you should be prepared for crabs large and small covering the rocks and at one point you will have to walk through a small cave waste deep in water with crabs crawling across the ceiling a couple of feet above your head (great fun).

We stayed in the deluxe rooms, which had the best view you could possible hope for. Some of our group stayed in the spa rooms, which although they did not have the view were just as nice as the deluxe rooms inside.

There is really very little not to like about the Escape and I would highly recommend this as a safe bet for a holiday to the Caribbean. It easily out does most accommodation in this price range.

As stated above we travelled with Virgin and the flights were excellent. Each seat had its own TV with around seven films playing at the same time. There were so few people on the plane (747) all fourteen of us could have sat at a window seat or slept across a row of three seats for the whole flight.

All in all a superb holiday and we will all be going back as soon as possible.

We stayed at the hotel for one week, during which my partner and I got married. The hotel was very very clean, and all the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful (although the bar staff could be more cheerful). Our wedding ceremony was absolutely wonderful and just as we had dreamed of. The food at this hotel is fantastic and both restaurants are lovely. We will definitely be returning. There are lots of excursions to choose from, and lots of places to visit on your own as well. Highly recommended.
