We had an all inclusive holiday at the escape hotel and spa a couple of years ago (not linked to a cruise) and thoroughly enjoyed barbados. Bedroom was comfortable, ours was in the main hotel building, but people we met who were staying in the garden rooms, had problems with insects. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was quite good, buffet style at lunch, most evening were waiter service, and the garden restuarant, where you had to book in advance was very good. WE didn't try the spa so can't comment. The hotel had direct access to a lovely beach with swimming and water sport area. We took a couple of organised excursions - one was on - i think they called them "wave riders" a sort of cross between a jet ski and a dinghy - where they took us out to snorkel over a wreck - great. We also hired a mini moke for a few days and just drove around. I loved the Chattel village in Hole town - great for souvenir shopping. And of course Bridgetown well worth seeing. Hope you have a great tim.
