The villa was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 4 children. There was plenty of room for everyone, and extra room for by yourself time. The staff was unbelievably wonderful - don't even think of going out to dinner - Darek is the best chef on the island! And Kelly and Grace made life so easy and comfortable. It was the best we could have hoped for to celebrate our 50th anniversary.
Firefly was outstanding and impeccable in its furnishing. What a place to celebrate our 50th with our children and grandkids. Plenty of room for a group of 10 and right on the beach. The staff was great. We ate in all nights and Chef Derick did an outstanding job, cooking for a diverse group. Even a Barbados Thanksgiving dinner none of us will forget. Loretta and Nicole where truly great, our cloths cleaned daily and helping with any request. The unit is on a beautiful private beach with breathtaking sunsets, chairs and umbrellas set up daily by staff. All sorts of water rides available just outside your door.
The location was awesome, the staff was exceptional.
Our Family stayed in two villas at Old Trees (Firefly and Penthouse) and Firefly was beautiful. The layout is perfect for families or couples with lots of space to relax. The plunge pool and beach access were a major bonus. We had issues with the TVs but they were fixed over a couple of days. In addition, the crib set up we asked for had cribs in different rooms so we had to make different sleeping arrangements (as the cribs would have to be taken apart and reassembled otherwise). While the staff at the Penthouse were fabulous, the staff at Firefly were not up to a 5 star experience. The chef was great but didn't engage much with us and the ladies on staff were not always pleasant. We always had to ask for towels and we felt bad asking for anything (even when things weren't working- like the TVs). Also, this villa did not come stocked with basic toiletries unlike other Barbados properties we have stayed at.
All arrangements executed perfectly. All people involved were polite, helpful and friendly. Villa was exceptional. Beach was great. Chef prepared fine dining from morning to night. Housekeeping staff kept the villa spotless, and fresh laundry daily. All were very personable.
The villa was amazing, exquisitely decorated, pristine with the best views on the best beach! Loved the location, and would definitely do it again.
Located beachfront on Paynes Bay.
