Would return again and recommend to friends.
We would stay at Margate Gardens again. Rod and Wanda were very helpful in setting up the reservation and answering any questions about the property and the services within the vicinity. Natalie provided a warm welcome and made the long day of travel a little easier. The condo is very easy to find thanks to simple instructions from the rental car agent. The complex is very clean and the pictures show the interior of the condo very well. The balcony and the teak furniture is a huge plus. The air conditioning units are very quiet, efficient and cool off the room within a half hour. The other families at the complex were polite and one of the residents, who is a long-time resident of Barbados, apologized for the first two days having an overcast afternoon. The condo is across the street from Tapas restaurant, which is the best in the area. Blakey's is also good for the oceanfront Caribbean bar. There is also Mama Mia's, which is within walking distance, and an option for authentic Italian food. Naru had great food, but really bad service. Champers was closed due to construction and renovation for, what looked like, a big expansion. While there is an iMart in the mall next door, a car is recommended for the Super B grocery store. Bridgetown, Crane Beach, Miami Beach and the eastern/western coasts of the island are all worth a visit. The modern boardwalk across the street is maintained throughout the week and provides a beautiful walk along the shore. Rockley Beach, at the eastern end of the boardwalk, has a few guys that rent sets of beach chairs. Two chairs and an umbrella for 30 Barbados dollars, all day, is a great deal. If you are there for peak season, get there by 10 am for a good spot on the beach and the parking lot. The coolers in the condo were a nice addition for the trip to the beach. We already look forward to returning to Hastings. The warm weather and sun was quickly missed when we returned to snow and near zero temperatures in New York. Thank you.
