The Ivy lived up to the description and photograph

  • 5 of 5

Superb: Very large 3 bedroom apartment. Huge master suite, good size 2nd suite, and 3rd bedroom has next door shower room. Everything was presented in a first class condition. Pam the house keeper is great! Location is everything in Barbados and by luck we chose that, as The Ivy is on the best part of the best beach in Barbados (in my view). 1st floor location which has stairs and lift access and very secure.

Stylish & superb

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful floor-to-ceiling glass concertina door folds back completely to leave nothing between you and the view…and it's no mistake this will be open for you when you arrive at the Ivy. It actually stopped me in my tracks. The apartment is huge and stylish, but I lived on the balcony terrace. It's huge too - another lounge and dining room - on the outside, in the fresh air, with that stunning view - oh and a hot tub! The Ivy is one floor up and so you have privacy, yet you're close enough to see turtles coming up out of the crystal clear water for a quick gulp of air before heading back down. On my last day, from the hot tub, I looked out to the garden to see a hummingbird hover above a beautiful flower and a few yards beyond it - a turtle coming up for air. A beautiful goodbye. The Ivy is a delight.

A luxurious stay in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Coral Cove is in an unbeatable location - The Ivy, on the first floor, has a fantastic view overlooking the beach and easy access to it. The apartment is beautifully furnished and has everything one could possibly need. Pam, the housekeeper, is a lovely lady, who cooked and cleaned, and spirited away our dirty laundry, returning it clean and ironed the next day. Her little touches, like a bowl of water in which to rinse our feet when we returned from the beach, were very much appreciated. The apartment is spacious, but when we weren't in the bedroom, we were out on the balcony, with its comfortable sofas and large dining table, marvelling at the view, especially of the sunset. It’s the perfect place to watch the goings on on the beach and the catamarans stopping at the turtle feeding station offshore. Having hired a catamaran for our own trip, we actually found ourselves swimming along beside a turtle about two feet from the beach there. Sun loungers are set out every morning for Coral Cove residents and there is a roped off swimming area.

Paynes Bay is well located for eating out, with Holetown just along the coast and the marvellous Cliff restaurant close by. It was well placed for visiting other parts of the island, like the wild and beautiful Bathsheba or the hustle of Bridgetown.

All in all, Coral Cove is the ideal spot for a beach holiday in Barbados and we will surely return if we can.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay at The Ivy. The apartment is beautifully furnished and really does look as it is online. An added bonus was the proximity of some of the island's best restaurants with The Cliff within staggering distance and plenty of other eating places very close by. It was also very useful to be within a five minute drive of Holetown and the Supermarket. I’d also recommend checking out the East coast for its rugged beauty if you hire a car.

We mainly spent our days lounging on the beach and swimming with the turtles, which my partner insisted on swimming out to most days! It’s pretty incredible seeing these creatures in their natural environment. Lunchtimes were spent dining on the terrace enjoying Pam’s culinary delights and then we often ate out in the evening. We loved the Jacuzzi and spent many an evening taking in the beautiful views/sunsets from the balcony with a glass or two of bubbly!

Romeo and Clifton who provided security were really friendly and helpful, as were the Owner and Property Manager with arranging our transfers and groceries. We would be very happy to return here as it was the perfect getaway!

Stunning Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a really stunning week at Coral Cove - the apartment met all our expectations - beautifully appointed rooms and a private access and onto the best beach in Barbados, which is a stone throw from the apartment. From the veranda overlooking the beach we enjoyed the lovely Caribbean evening sunsets, if you have not seen one then Coral Cove is the place. Pam looked after us well and produced delicious meals cooked to perfection - fantastic views and location. Coral Cove gives you a real taste of the vibrancy and colour of Barbados.
