UPDATE – August 2012
The SoCo hotel construction/renovations are continuing. Here’s an updated photo taken August-12-2012.
The boardwalk and beach are as fabulous as ever!
The talk in Barbados and online (specially from repeat visitors to our lovely island) is of the new SoCo Hotel slated to open on the south coast of the island in August.
The hotel is located directly along the south coast boardwalk, at its western end. This location gives great access to the boardwalk, perfect for strolling, jogging and watching sunsets, as well as to the lovely beaches and pools along that coastline.
The hotel itself is at the site of the previous Sierra Beach Apartments. At the time of writing (May 28th) the hotel is currently under development. The core structure of the building is in place and major internal and external renovations are underway.
