Recent Speightstown reviews

  • Great new villa, amazing location, perfect island.

    "We stayed for 6 nights in February 2017. The villa is newly built and furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen has a large fridge freezer and a range style gas cooker. The air conditioning in the bedroom was very effective and the fan in the living area kept the house cool. The pool onsite is quite a bit bigger than the pictures indicate and it was warm enough in February for the family to use. The villa is situated very close to the Almond beach hotel which has an amazing beach. You can walk to the beach in a few minutes. The Heywood estate has a good mix of newish build houses and the locals are very friendly. Its a ten minute walk into Speightstown which has all the basic shopping you will need for your holiday. If you walk the other way on the main road you reach a beautiful Marina and its beach, carry on walking and you reach a rural part of the Island where the locals live in their beach shacks. There is a great shack there that does cheap food and drinks, mostly used by locals but very welcoming to tourists. They had 3 BBD banks beer and 9 BBD Spanish wine and also stocked snacks (the Fishcake sandwich was nice). We had great fun exploring the island on the Yellow "Reggae Reggae" buses. These are only 1USD person and we took them twice in to Bridgetown and once into Holetown. The yellow buses are an experience themselves with the loud music playing and Alton Towers style driving. The more reserved government blue buses are also available, however our only journey on one resulted in a breakdown! We spent about 100 USD on Taxi's to and from the airport and then only spent about 20 dollars on buses across the island. We had a small query when we were in the villa which John and Jan responded to immediately and quickly gave us the help we required. They were also very helpful in making sure we got to our villa, calling us at 10pm Barbados time (2am UK time) after our flight was delayed 4 hours. The proximity of the villa to the beach and also its closeness to the amenities means this will be our first choice villa when we return to Barbados."

  • What A Wonderful Place

    "We spent 5 nights and loved our stay. We rented a car for our time there so that we would be able to see the whole island and it was nice getting to come back to this place and not a small hotel bedroom. The place was perfect for the whole family, all 4 of us with two young girls (4 and 6). So much room that we were able to have our space and not feel like we were all right up on each other whenever we were in the rooms. The location was very good also (easy to find), right next to a beautiful beach, with hardly anyone there at the beach it felt like a private beach for us. The swimming at the place was great, just go out the front and a little to the right, and we were able to see so many different types of fish, an eel and several star fish. As for the apartment, it was everything that was described in the listing and the owners were very helpful and supplied a large amount of info about the island and the different restaurants and everything else we might need to make the most of our trip. One thing that anybody going to this island needs to do, is take the catamaran cruise, they will pick you up and drop you off at this place and you will have an amazing day. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone."

  • We had a great time

    "The location is perfect with 2 beaches very close and lots of places to eat within a mile or two. Speightstown is lively - especially the Little Bristol Bar on the waterfront which is great. We loved the yellow buses with music blaring. The pool apartment is comfortable and well maintained by Claudett who is very friendly. Nice to see monkeys helping themselves to mangos in the garden. The information provided by the owners was excellent and we enjoyed several of the suggested eating places. JuJus is great and we had a special meal at Cariba. Hope to stay longer next time. Pippa"

  • Relaxation in Speightstown

    "My wife, adult son and his girlfriend all spent 10 days in the White Sands condo in Speightstown, Barbados. The condo was beautiful, clean, well appointed, and with the outside balcony/lanai provided terrific views of the ocean and street below. On first blush the surrounding buildings gave us pause but it is just another reality of small parish Barbados that older buildings co-exist with the new. The town is very safe and the people easy going. Many of the bars and restaurants (all within a short walk) offer good food, and some have lounge chairs and umbrellas for guest use on the beach. We recommend a car rental for a few days in order to see the entire island - but stay puckered, the roads are narrow, left hand drive and the locals move quickly. All in all a terrific stay at a great location with the comfort of an upper end condo to come home to. Our hosts Richard and Sarah were very accommodating with airport transfers and assistance wherever required. Thanks again for a great holiday."
