Going to Barbados and staying here should be on everyone's bucket list!
We rent condos all the time and this is truly a wonderful condo. The apartment is on the 3rd floor overlooking both the pool and the beach. You would be hard pressed to find a more picture perfect view. The condo property is gated and very clean. The beach is gorgeous and although you have to pay for the beach chairs, the service and security that Kenny provides is well worth it. We were not hounded at all by any beach vendors. We even rented Jetskis on the beach and the vendors were very helpful and nice, he didn't even take our money until after we returned to the beach.
Albert was wonderful. He met us at the condo upon arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. He also introduced us to Barbara the manager. The apartment has 3 bedrooms with 2 of them being master bedrooms. There are also 3 bathrooms.There is an amazing amount of living space in the condo with its big closets, big screen tvs and big bathrooms you never feel crowded. The balcony is to die for! The kitchen is well equipped and there is a small grocery story a few minutes away.
You also have your own parking spot inside the gate, which again made the property feel very safe. We rented a car for a few days and it was great to be able to slip right into our parking spot.
The resort did not feel crowded at all. It seems ideal for couples and families and although there is no restaurant on-site, there are several beach bars within a few feet of your chair on the beach. There is also a restaurant right next door at Southern Palms. We walked to the gap most nights for dinner. The walk at night may seem a little intimidating but we felt safe, just use common sense.
It is really in a great location and we will be returning. By the way, we are a family of four adults, daughter 19 and son 22 and we all loved this place and would highly recommend it.
