HASTINGS TOWERS, CHRIST CHURCH, BARBADOS

In 1066, William the Conqueror considered Hastings to be the gateway to England. In the 21st century, many people have discovered that Hastings Towers is still the best and most convenient location to stay in for the discovery and exploration of Barbados.

Located on the lively South coast of the island (forget the West coast, that is where ‘The More Money than Senses’ congregate to pay over-inflated prices in a miserably humid area that is prone to flooding!), Hastings Towers is just a 20 minute drive from the airport.

Once you have admired the clear blue seas rolling onto the beaches from the balconies, you will feel inspired to get out and explore. Fortunately, you do not have to go too far, Hastings Towers residents are able to use the pool of the Caribbee which is just across the road. The Caribbee also has an excellent, reasonably priced restaurant and bar with great views.

However, a one minute walk is not exactly exploring, but a 10 minute walk (5 minute drive) down the road takes you to one of Barbados’ best beaches – Accra (aka Rockley Beach) on your way to this lovely beach you will pass several shopping malls that have many facilities including gift shops, restaurants and a gymnasium.

A 15 minute stroll the other way takes you to Carlisle Bay and the opportunity to snorkel or scuba over wrecks. Once again, you will pass many restaurants and bars including Club Fred, TGI Fridays and the 39 Steps.

For those who have more sporting inclinations, en route to Carlisle Bay you will pass the Garrison race course, and horse racing takes place throughout most of the year. Once at Carlisle Bay, you are a stone’s throw from Bridgetown and the Kensington Oval – the home of Caribbean cricket. Close to Hastings Towers is Rockley Resort with tennis courts and a golf course, while the Gary Sobers Sports Centre provides just about every amenity.

If sport is not for you, the Garrison area also contains the Barbados Museum and George Washington’s house.

In the evening, as well as the many convenient local restaurants and bars, there is also the opportunity to visit the famous St Lawrence Gap (about a 15 minute drive). In the Gap, you will find a plethora of bars, restaurants and clubs – come early, stay late, the Gap does not shut and there is something there for everyone!

Also the rest of Barbados is in easy reaching distance from Hastings Towers; Oistins and the renowned fish fry is only 20 minutes away, the Crane Beach with its pink sand is half an hour, Bathsheba and the ‘Soupbowl’ about the same.

Wherever you want to go, you cannot be more conveniently located than Hastings Towers for your discovery of this island in the sun.

Our home away from home!

Camelot House - Lower Camelot My husband and I have stayed at Camelot house six years in a row, and can't imagine staying anywhere else when we travel to Barbados each winter. The location cannot be beat - it is right off the boardwalk on the south coast, which allows us to enjoy our morning walk/run right outside our door. Everything is within walking distance - great restaurants, shopping, groceries, and anywhere else you may wish to go is accessible by the local ZR vans (look for the white vans with the burgundy stripe on the side - listen for their wide variety of horn signals as well!) or by blue or yellow buses, which provide safe and efficient travel across the island for $1 US each way. You don't need a car - although having said that, we finally summoned up the courage to rent a car and will definitely do so in the future again, even for a few days, it's well worth it to have a car to get to some of the more out of the way spots - such as Little Bay or St. Nicholas Abbey. Beaches are plentiful and varied - if you have young children, the shallow pools in front of Camelot House are perfect, and a little farther in is a deeper 'swimming pool', which is the perfect size with calm water, backed and surrounded by a rock reef. At the end of the boardwalk to the left of Camelot is Accra Beach which has more vigorous waves. Going to the right leads to Coconut Court, where you can spend the day lounging under the delightful span of coconut palms, and enjoy their wonderful rum punch and two extremely reasonably priced happy hours at their beach bar. Lower Camelot has the most expansive and fabulous deck which we absolutely adore. The first time we rented this place, we spent the majority of our time simply savouring the view and stayed on the deck a good portion of the day. After six times, we still enjoy the view and the exotic tree which has grown around and become a staple feature of the deck, with its welcoming and necessary shade particularly in the afternoon. There is comfortable furniture in the living area, cable TV and movies, which we watch in the evenings. The kitchen doesn't have an oven, which is the one thing we desperately miss. The tiny toaster style oven takes a lot longer to cook food in, but at least there is some type of an oven as I love to cook my fresh fish in an oven. The king size bed is firm and very comfortable, and also has a mosquito net overtop in case you wish to leave the windows open at night. The air con

January 2017 our family of 4 spent a wonderful week in Diana’s condo. This is our second time staying at Margate Gardens and we love the complex. It is safe with beautiful lush gardens that are manicured daily by friendly gardeners, quiet and perfect for a relaxing vacation. The patio was a few steps to a nice clean pool. An outdoor shower to rinse off the beach sand is located by the pool. We were able to park our rental car right at the front door. The condo is tastefully decorated, clean, spacious, modern and very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a full meal. The fridge has an ice maker! A small portable cooler is supplied to bring drinks to Accra/Rockley beach, which is a 5 minute walk on the beautiful boardwalk across the street. Location is perfect close to beach and a small shopping complex next door. Tapas restaurant across the street is a must with great food and a beautiful view of the ocean. Diana was a wonderful host. She was always available to answer all our questions and had great suggestions for us on what to do and where to go. We will definitely return. Pat, Judy, Kyle & Kelsey

It was our second time staying here, and we had an excellent time as we had last year. We stayed for a week, and can't wait to go back next year! Thank you Rod and Wanda.
