Recent Barbados reviews

  • Excellent value for money

    "The villa is well situated, extremely spacious, and generally well appointed. It is a great deal cheaper than many other comparable properties, and so with this you need to take some of the quibbles. These could all be easily rectified with some tlc, and in fact the owners could then charge more, but perhaps that isn't a priority. The surrounds to the pool have broken tiles, particularly dangerous with children or elderly guests who might trip. Also the hand rail is loose and comes away. There are discarded inflatable toys around the pool-mostly broken and gathering dirt. We pointed these out, but I suspect they are still there. The bathrooms need a compete overhaul. No lighting in master shower makes it dangerous. Ripped shower curtain in guest shower looked cheap. Fridge covered in rust, but working perfectly well inside. Most of the cupboards sticky to the touch. It was such a shame, as most of this could be so easily rectified. Would suggest the owners go and stay again to pick up on some of the suggestions. With these few updates I would stay here again in a heartbeat and it was terrific value-hence the four stars."

  • A Garden Sanctuary

    "Barabados is blessed with some of the most magnificent beaches in the Caribbean and some of the nicest people in the world. Just a short walk from a lovely beach is Glenville Gardens, overseen by perhaps the nicest people in Barbados, Barbara and Sugrim. Glenville Gardens, a few cottages situated in a beautiful garden, is a soothing environment where one can relax and enjoy the near idyllic Caribbean weather. The garden is a soothing sanctuary for plants, animals, and people. Barbara is an amazing gardener, and the grounds are filled with trees and plants that create a calming oasis and supply the bananas for her delicious homemade banana bread and the fruits (we were there when passion fruit was ripe) she presents as gifts for her guests. A few chickens and turtles are among the unobtrusive but welcome denizens of Glenville Gardens as are many birds, including hummingbirds and bananaquits, and a small group of green monkeys that often pass through the garden though they do not reside there. The cottages (we stayed in Heather), are lovely, well-equipped, and each has an outdoor sitting area. They are also immaculately kept and cleaned. There are communal spaces and a barbecue where guests can socialize if they wish. Privacy or community – it’s up to each guest to decide. This has to be one of the least stressful environments we’ve ever been lucky enough to experience. Glenville Gardens is close to beaches, restaurants, bars, shopping, and the excellent public transportation system that can deliver you from one end of the island to the other. Barbara and Sugrim are perfect hosts. They are hospitable, helpful, friendly, informative, efficient, and just plain wonderful people. Upon arrival, they immediately made us feel welcome and part of the family. When w had to head home, we did not want to leave, not just because we fell in love with Barbados, but because we were enamored with Glenville Gardens, Barbara, and Sugrim."

  • Perfect Christmas get away

    "Just back from 10 days at Sea Spray Villas. The pictures accurately show the comfortable and well-appointed house but to not due justice to the setting and the water. It was such a pleasure to be able to spontaneously decide to go for a swim or snorkeling by just walking down the steps. Although we had a car and did swimming and snorkeling at other spots, right in front of the house was hard to beat and the most convenient. The roads are not in very good shape and we found the signs often confusing and inconsistent, but we also enjoyed having a car and being able to do some exploring of the island. Nevertheless, the house and the water were by far the things that we will remember and miss the most. Cleaning service from Daphnea was very good and more than frequent enough for our visit and the manager Tricia was always within reach with a phone call. This is a well-run property and an excellent spot to discover Barbados away from the hotels and resorts."

  • “Tropical Pearl Offers Unforgettable Memories” – Simply awesome

    "My husband and I would describe our stay at Tropical Pearl intriguing, relaxing and invigorating after coming from our hectic schedules and commuting in Toronto. We arrived at this apartment on July 21st and stayed for one month. We were pleasantly surprised with the luscious surroundings of greenery and colours of red, lilac and yellow flowers which brought back pleasant memories of our honeymoon. The apartment is very well maintained, very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with pans, cutlery etc. If there is something you require otherwise, you can ask Yvette or Ed and they will get it for you. You will hear the birds chirping in the morning. You can also pick fruit of your choice and look at the tropical fish which includes tilapia in their five fish ponds. If you are lucky, you get your tilapia for dinner from the fish pond. Yvette and Ed were very committed to making our stay as enjoyable as it was. We are already planning for next year’s trip. We would definitely recommend persons seeking to get away from it all to stay at “Tropical Pearl”."
