Sugar HIll is on the West coast of Barbados in St James bordering the Caribbean Sea, wonderful for swimming and all watersport activities. At most hotels there is on offer water skiing, snorkeling and diving. Just drive otothe hotel and tell security that you are going ot the water sports area. Or call ahead and reserve time with your selected water spots facility. Fishing boats are on hire for deep sea fishing, there are many day and night trips on a variety of boats with snorkeling with lunch and drinks included.
If you prefer to explore the island and are interested in history, drive into The Garrison area which has recently become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is unique because it has survived intact, the buildings are now used for other purposes, becoming homes and business premises. Go to St Anns Fort and see the fine collection of 16th 17th Century cannons. An old custom has been revived every Wednesday at 11.50 at the Clock Tower the Changing of the sentry takes place, its free and charming with a small band playing and the personell dressed in their traditional Zoave unfforms it is a step back in time.The Barbados Museum is nearby, housed in the old hospital and prison, well worth a visit to see so many historical aspects of Barbados displayed together. George Washington House is on The Garrison, Barbados is the only country he visited outside the USA. It is a charming house beautifully and sensitively restored, the visit opens with an infomative film. For National Trust members entry is free bring your NT card with you for entry and also for use at other properties in Bds.

Do visit the magnificent East Coast, breath the fresh air straight from Africa, walk the beaches, take care if swimming as it is dangerous but there are rock pools to explore and paddle in to cool off. Drive along the East Coast Road now called ( I think Emmy Bourne Hiway)
The Sugar Hill resort is wonderfully placed to enjoy the best that Barbados has to offer. Saint James has a fabulous run of restaurants and quiet secluded west coast beaches. The villa is well appointed with a fine well equipped kitchen. The large terrace provides ample opportunity for al fresco dining and the pool is just a hundred feet or so away. All the bedrooms have direct access to the outside by either private balcony or the terrace. Sugar Hill itself has many nice features. The view from the clubhouse is spectacular and that view is available from the pool, bar and restaurant. A brisk walk around the grounds is a great way to get the day started. Barbados has all you would expect in a caribbean island. Great beaches, diving, golf and sail cruises but there is a unique feel to Barbados that I believe stems from its history and topography.
We have visted many islands and Barbados has the most diverse types of terrain of any place we have been. The east coast looks like the Big Sur while the south reminds me of the Bahamas. We took a zip line adventure throught he trees and had lunch at the east coast Atlantis hotel with the surf crashing right below our window. We toured a historic sugar plantation and stopped by the Mount Gay store for some supplies. We had dinner and drinks at a number of very refined posh establishments in Saint James and also had a great meal in a local Friday night fish fry. The night sky is very clear and I had my first unforgettable look at the Southern Cross. All in all a great vacation and we look forward to returning to Barbados and Sugar Hill many times in the future.
We stayed in this beautiful villa for my husband's 30th birthday - how lucky were we! It's presented to the highest standard with everything you could wish for. The housekeeper keeps it spotless; I was desperate to take her home! It felt like staying in a hotel but with the freedom of self catering.
For things to do, we would highly recommend trying the catamaran with Silver Moon, the Island Safari and Harrison's Cave. For places to eat, visit Daphne's for a special treat.
A big thank you to Manty for looking after us so well and Veronica for the The Royal Fairmont membership cards - a beach you must visit and don't leave before swimming in the sea!
If we're lucky enough to return to Barbados in the future, we would only stay here.
Very happy to award 5 stars.
Manty and the team were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.
We received a very friendly welcome from Heather, who had kindly supplied us with all the groceries we had asked for.
The property was very clean and in excellent decorative order, with good quality furniture and pretty much everything you could wish for. I would say it was as well appointed as any holiday property we have ever rented.
Both pools were lovely and the beach facility was excellent as well.
We had a lazy time which was perfect.....!
Would recommend Cool Running boat trip and Lone Star restauranat on beach for a very pleasant lunch.
Would love to return.
Thank you for a fabulous stay in your lovely home. The property was described accurately and served our family of 4 perfectly. The house was well laid out, spotlessly clean and a short walk to the clubhouse. We have stayed at the Royal Westmorland resort in the past but preferred the Sugar Hill Resort with its magnificent clubhouse infinity pool overlooking the Caribbean sea.
The service whilst we rented the house was excellent. Manty was there to greet us on arrival with our pre-ordered shopping having arranged a driver to collect us from the airport and arranged delivery of our hire car to the property. We were grateful for her telephone calls during our stay to check if we needed anything. We enjoyed eating out at the many magnificent Barabados restaurants (Lone Star & Tides were our favourites) but also spent some evenings in the house taking advantage of the Netflix service available to us.
We spent many days of our holiday taking advantage of the Beach Club facilities at the Fairmont Hotel on the coast (5 mins drive) which Manty had made available to us. On arrival at the beach the friendly staff made sure we had a bed and shade and encouraged us to join in their activities - snorkelling with the turtles was an amazing experience.
The Bajan people are friendly and helpful. We had a fabulous holiday and would definitely recommend the property and resort.
Coconut Shell is such a lovely house. It's spacious and very tastefully decorated. Six of us stayed and we had plenty of room to move around. The houses and villas on the complex are really spread out so you feel you have enough privacy. We had a lovely pool 50 feet from our back yard, then another totally amazing pool with bar and restaurant a 2 minute walk away within the complex.
The kitchen has all the utensils you need and with the maid service 3 times a week, the house is kept very clean.
I spent a lot of time relaxing in the back yard area which was really comfortable. Our room had great air con, and a very comfy bed so I got a great night sleep every night. My whole holiday was about relaxation, and this lovely house certainly gave me what I wanted.
Manty and her husband were such a great hosts, so welcoming and helpful. If there was a problem they were straight on it.
The complex is very tidy and well looked after. It feels safe with staff at the main gate and security staff patrolling at night in their little golf buggy.
The trees and plants are so beautiful and really well looked after, and the whole complex is just so pleasant and peaceful.
We ate one night at the Spago restaurant on the complex, and the food and cocktails were really nice and we were well looked after by their staff.
We cooked for ourselves most days. The nearest supermarket is a five minute drive away so we hopped in a cab to get our provisions. If you're not au fait with the laid back Bajan way do remember to give yourself plenty of time when you book a cab. If he says he'll be with you in 30 minutes there's a pretty good chance you'll see him in an hour. This wasn't a problem for us as we were in no big hurry to get anywhere. I think we'd probably rent a car though when we come again, just for the convenience of coming and going when you please.
The beach closest to the complex (sorry I can't remember its name) was beautiful, and we spent many days at Brown's Beach where you pay one reasonable price to enter the beach which covers the cost of a meal and a couple of cocktails. The sea is crystal clear, and my daughter and I went jetskiing for the first time which was great fun.
I can't rate this holiday home any higher. We would definitely come back again. I almost want to say horrible things about Coconut Shell so that you don't want to go there and we can have it all to ourselves. One of our best holidays ever.
We stayed for 10 days over my son's half term in February. My Mother came with us and said it is so rare to be able to say after a holiday that everything was perfect. Having a spacious, beautifully furnished and equipped house helped no end.
The beach facilities are brilliant and the pools clean and well maintained. It was so good that we have already booked to go again, at the same time next year. I have never before returned to the same place, as I believe the world is too big for repeat visits, so it must have been good!
A couple of things to be aware of, when Angie comes in to clean the house, she is there all day, not a quick in and out as we would expect in the UK, that said she is extremely pleasant and does a brilliant job. Also, the restaurant at the Club House serves very good meals but the service is dreadful, it took my Mum 2+ hours to have lunch, so factor in extra time if you do decide to eat there.
Staying in the villa was just wonderful . Starting from the warm welcome of the owners and the perfect organisation of their beautiful and spotless home ? We felt comfortable , safe and cuddled . We are planning to go again . I would definitely recommend it. Thank you Veronica , thank you Manty
