Just back from 10 days in Barbados and feel very lucky that we chose this apartment. Having never been to Barbados, doing the research on where to stay felt daunting at first. We nailed this one. Paynes Bay is more laid back than the hustle and bustle of Bridgetown, St. Lawrence Gap, etc. (yet, if it's hustle and bustle you want...it's only 20-30 minutes by car). It's a stones throw from Holetown, with great restaurants and shopping.
We loved Paynes Bay Beach. We never felt it necessary to go to another beach for swimming/snorkeling as we had the best right in front of us! We did have a car and explored other coasts, of course, but PBB was the best!! Loved the private terrace when we chose not to take advantage of the sunbeds right on the beach.
The apartment itself was incredible. High quality furnishings and everything in excellent condition. One of the most comfortable king size beds I've ever slept in!!! The staff are amazing. Our housekeeper, Sharon, could not have been better...she took very good care of us.
Some Barbados tips if you are lucky enough to stay in this apartment: We did not visit any of the high end, gourmet restaurants....there are just to many excellent local places. Our favorites: Fisherman's Pub (Speightstown), Surfside Pub (Holetown), Mr. Vic's (a block from the apartment), Angry Annies (Holetown). Also, rent a car...the driving is not so bad. It gives you the freedom to get out and explore!!!
