Places to Visit on Holiday to Mount Standfast, Barbados

Less than 3 kilometres to the south of Mount Standfast is the relatively busy town of Holetown. The town used to be named Jamestown but the activity of unloading and cleaning ships in a narrow channel on the outskirts of the town eventually led to the name being changed. One of the main attractions of Holetown is the Folkestone Marine Park and Museum. This centre has a wonderful artificial reef with its own sunken sea vessel which visitors can dive down to and explore. The museum also has aquariums that hold rare and fascinating examples of marine life.

On the outskirts of Holetown is the Portvale Sugar Factory which is a must-see attraction. The factory is modern and still working but it is home to the Sir Frank Hutson Sugar Museum. The old boiling houses are home to many sugar-production exhibits that were collected by an engineer, Frank Hutson. If you visit the factory during the crop season, which is January to May, you can actually see the sugar manufacturing process in full swing.

The apartment exceeded our expectations. It had everything we needed for the perfect, relaxing stay. We particularly enjoyed the private roof top terrace and hot tub. The resort was very well maintained with lovely staff. We had use of a car for the duration of our stay. Taxi's are readily available but felt they were expensive. Great bars and restaurants are within easy reach and the use of the beach club was a real bonus. We felt our stay at Lumiere gave us a different perspective of the island and can honestly say we fell in love with Barbados a little bit more! Would definitely recommend the property and hope to make use of it again the future.

On arrival we were met by the housekeeper who was extremely helpful and friendly. She kept the apartment beautifully clean throughout our stay.The apartment had everything we could have hoped for. It is perfect for 2 people with a great location on the Sugar Hill development, close to the pools and the main reception area with a lovely restaurant and bar. We also used the gym facilities at Sugar Hill almost every day and it is well equipped and very clean. The apartment itself has a nice outdoor dining area and an upper terrace which was fabulous for sunset drinks and barbecuing. We have visited Barbados before but this is the first time we stayed in an apartment rather than an hotel. We chose to dine at several restaurants but also wanted to be able to eat in the apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped and we had everything at hand to make any meals ourselves. The nearest super market is very close in Holetown (although closed for renovations during our stay). We shopped elsewhere but it was not a problem at all. We would definitely recommend a car to stay here as most places are close but too far to walk. We were very pleased to be in this location as all the best restaurants and shopping are a short ride away. The additional use of the facilities at The Fairmont Beach Club was a real bonus as we went to the beach most days and the Beach club restaurant was very good. The fact that you can use the beach facilities without an extra charge is great and the beach is very safe with a friendly security lady, who assured us we could swim and not have to be concerned about valuables on the beach. Our favorite restaurants are Lone Star, Cin Cin and Carizma on the hill (right in Sugar Hill itself). We also visited the Barbados wildlife reserve on our only rainy day and that was fun. We only needed to call the management company once during our stay for a slight issue and they responded quickly and sent a maintenance person right away. The only thing we wish we had done was to book for longer!! We would certainly stay at Yellow Bird again and would definitely recommend it to our friends. Thank you Kate for a wonderful stay we will be back.
