As you may be aware, the people of Barbados elected a new Government on May 24 2018. The new administration has, with dispatch, sought to rebuild the country’s social and economic well-being, in order to renew and maintain Barbados’ competitiveness as a tourism destination.
As a consequence, a mandatory new room tax has been introduced, effective July 1, 2018.
In the case of Dover Beach Hotel, which falls within the category of B Class and Apartment Hotels, the applied tax will be US$2.50 or $5.00 Barbados dollars per room, per night.
As mentioned, the new levy is effective July 1, 2018. The new taxes will be collected upon check-out in the form of cash or credit card
We thank you for your support and your cooperation, in the circumstances, as we work together to administer this new policy as seamlessly as possible.
