  • Fabulous apartment

    "Just returned from a fantastic holiday at the Ixora complex . The apartment was very modern and immaculately clean. It had everything you needed to make it home from home. A small pool in the complex that my children really enjoyed. It is walking distance to lots of shops , bars and the beach. We also had a few nights in 2 we'll know hotels on our trip. We would choose the Ixora apartment over any of them. It was just fabulous. I would highly recommend the Ixora 6"

  • Best Choice I Have Ever Made

    "The 60+ Club Having saved up the pennies for a few years to celebrate my 60th birthday, I decided to take the family away for a good holiday, rather than spend it all on a night of boozing and dancing. I had wanted to go to Barbados for some years and looked for a place that we could call our own. We selected Alverton Villas as we wanted somewhere close to the beach. Well, if you got any closer you would be on a boat! It is steps away from the sea and the beach is perfect. I cannot recommend this collection of villas highly enough to anyone looking for a perfect vacation getaway. We rented all the villas for a month and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They were all spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Elaine and Shirley looked after us so well they almost ended up with squatters. Shirley even cooked for us a few times while we were there, for a very reasonable agreed fee, to save us having to do it ourselves. Real Barbadian food! We often went swimming with the turtles that tend to frequent the sea outside the villas and with the crystal clear waters it was a real experience. We really did not want to leave and with any luck the wife and I will be going back next year."

  • A weeks celebration in Barbados

    "Together with family and friends we spent a week at La Paloma in Barbados to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was a wonderful experience made special by the location, the staff and of course Barbados. Thank you to luxury retreats for making the arrangements, we will definitely use the services again."

  • Beautiful villa in quiet area.

    "We have just returned from ten days in paradise! Firstly, I have to say that dealing with Linda was a pleasure from start to finish. She was always available if needed, and arranged our lifts from and to the airport for us. She also checked with us regularly to see if we needed anything. This villa is perfect for a home from home holiday. It is spacious, light and airy and beautifully furnished. There are mosquito and security grills on the outside of all windows which means that you can leave all of the windows open day and night. This gives a lovely airy feel to the place and gives nice through breezes. The air conditioning in the bedrooms is very efficient and the beds are very comfortable so we slept so well! The outdoor spaces are very private, except from the occasional visit from the friendly monkeys which is amazing. They visited us twice around breakfast time. The friendly housekeeper, Janice, visits twice a week to change beds and towels etc. There are plenty of towels provided including beach towels. This villa actually has all the amenities you need. The access that is provided to the Beach House is what makes this extra special. The Beach House is about a 15 minute walk away, but it is an easy walk. The access provides you with the use of all facilities at The Beach House so you have sun beds and shade and free iced water. There is a bar to buy drinks, and a restaurant for lunch and dinner. Also showers and changing rooms with lockers should you need them. We felt quite happy leaving our belongings out when we went for lunch or in the sea. It is a nice place, solely for use by members. The best part is the beach! It is particularly quiet and the water is beautiful here! The villa is situated in a quiet backwater, next door to a small hotel, whose pool we used on one occasion after checking at reception that it was ok to do so. There is a nice little cafe, a few shops and the bus stop within a 5/10 minute walk, and then the main supermarket and restaurants are about a 15 minute walk. Everything is within easy reach. We used the buses on two occasions. We went to Bridgetown on the blue bus, and then rode the yellow reggae bus to Speightstown which is an experience not to be missed!! You need the correct money, but it is only 1US dollar per person per ride. Amazing value. The locals are all very friendly and we always felt safe. We only have positives to say about this villa and holiday. Thank you Linda!"
