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.

Alexis was great to deal with before and during our stay. Although she couldn't meet us on our arrival at the property she arranged for Juliet to let us in and show us around and then Alexis came next morning to introduce herself.t he apartment is very spacious and well equipped. We also think it has the best location within Margate Gardens as it is in the far corner from the pedestrian entrance and is therefore very secluded with little or no passing foot traffic. We loved chilling out for breakfast on the patio before heading off to a beach. On day 3 we were visited by a troop of Monkeys passing through. This was one of the highlights of our stay. There is a supermarket next door in Lanterns Mall and the larger Massys store is a few minutes away by car. We hired one for most of our stay from Top Car rental who are based in Rockley and delivered and collected the car. Made breakfast some days and on others went to Artsplash Cafe about 100yds west out the front gate. Rockley Beach is 10 mins walk along the boardwalk or highway 7. Dover beach and Miami /Enterprise are great a few mins drive east or Browns beach a few mins drive west. Great restaurants nearby include Blakeys, Tapas, Shakers, Berts and Mojos. The latter two are about half a mile away but we just jumped in a beep beep /reggae bus which are every few seconds on h7 and cost 2bbds to anywhere. We also used the bus to Oistins Fish Fry on Friday which was great fun. Get a bus back too not one of the taxis plying for trade. Cheapest beach for sunbeds is Dover on the Gap. Fave restaurant Shakers. Try and get to Huntes Gardens. Beautiful. Our flight back was late evening and Alexis allowed us to check out late as noone was checking in to the apartment that day. All in all we had a great time in this apartment and love Barbados. The drivers here are the most courteous we have ever seen and the Bajans are the friendliest people. You will love it.
