From the nine period-feeling Plantation Rooms in the original hotel—converted in the 19th century from the mid-1700s Sheriff’s House, once a canteen for the barracks of the surrounding, UNESCO-protected Garrison Historic Area—the modern white-block wings of this hotel spill down a series of cascading pools and tropically landscaped terraces to the beach. Deluxe Pool Access rooms even let you walk down a private staircase from your patio directly onto the pool deck. From the mahogany poster beds to the swim-up bar to the complimentary non-motorized water sports, the Savannah Beach offers a classic all-inclusive Caribbean resort experience just a short drive from Bridgetown. It’s also a good choice for families, with a kids’ club for younger children and a “teen hangout den” complete with Foosball, billiards, air hockey, video games, and a music mixing station.
