Barbados is still one of the safest destinations in the world. However, as anywhere, crime does occur. You can feel comfortable exploring the island, but please exercise good judgment (i.e. do not wear excessive jewelry or expose your money, do not walk alone at night or in isolated areas, etc.) In-room safes have been provided free of charge for you to store your valuables. Safety deposit boxes are also available at Reception.
Not only does Sugar Bay have a stunning stretch of beach, but it also have a cool calm bay perfect for swimming and paddle boarding.
Smoking is prohibited in public buildings in Barbados. Bougainvillea's smoke free policy means that smoking in the hotel's rooms, on balconies, restaurants, lobbies or in any place that is not a designated smoking area is illegal and subject to fines of up to US$2,500. To offset the extensive cost of restoring guest rooms to a smoke-free condition, guests who do not comply will be charged a fee of US$200, no exceptions.
