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.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    My Husband and I stayed at Yellow Bird for 11 nights. 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.

The apartment is set on a beautifully maintained complex with excellent facilities including multiple pools, tennis courts, gym, restaurant and bar, and is maintained by very friendly staff - Delphine was especially helpful. The apartment provided everything we could have wished for, with the roof terrace, hot tub and bbq adding a special bonus compared to other apartments we have stayed at in Barbados. The views from the roof were great with some particularly spectacular sunsets - I will miss watching the sun go down and the stars come up! The comprehensive internet TV was useful for when it rained, which wasn't that often.This was our second family holiday to Barbados and we met up with friends who were revisiting for their 25th wedding anniversary - Star Gazer provided the perfect location for a celebratory bbq, champagne and cake ! A car is essential, the apartment is easy to find and provided a perfect base from which to explore Barbados. Access to the Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel beach club through Sue and Paul's membership card was another great plus which we used several times as there was a beautiful beach, free sunbeds, fantastic restaurant with a great menu, very friendly staff and discounted rates on water sports hire. We noted the hotel was closing at the end of September for 1 months refurbishment and several restaurants had also closed for end of season vacations at this time e.g. Mullins beach restaurant and the Carizma on the Hill. Hole town provided the closest grocery shopping which will further improve when the new Massey store opens there. We found A1 supermarkets the most comprehensive, albeit further to travel. We had an end of holiday meal in The Tides restaurant in Hole town which we highly recommend - seated right next to the sea, the staff even sang happy birthday to us in unique Barbados style ! Overall we had a fantastic holiday at Star Gazer, we highly recommend it and look forward to returning whenever we next can.
