Places to visit on holiday in Speightstown, Barbados

It wouldn’t be much of a guide to Speightstown without a mention of the closest beaches to the town. After breakfast, it is only a gentle wander to the beach from any holiday rental property in Speightstown. Speightstown Beach is a beautifully flat, soft beach, with fine white sand stretching into the distance, interrupted only by a smattering of palm trees which grow in clumps along the sand. Sitting in their shade in a hammock is a completely unrivalled experience, and one you shall remember with jealousy when you arrive home!

                                                              Everything and more than I expected

It's not often I go on holiday and say I wouldn't change a thing. This was one of those holidays.. I will be back. Great for adults and children.

                                                              I recently had the good fortune to spend 10 days in Villa Elysium with my wife, two 9 year old daughters and friends. The villa is amazing with everything you could want including an excellent pool which is great to sit in with a glass of wine in the evening to watch the sun set on the horizon, just like a painting! Set further along the coast than the main hotels you are still within easy reach of the more renowned restaurants and beaches, while having a sense of tranquility. At the bottom of the hill is a lovely quiet beach along with the Port Charles Yacht Club for casual dining with the Fish Pot restaurant a couple of minutes around the bay for a more upmarket affair (great cocktails). The staff are so helpful and welcoming and the children were especially impressed with Sam, the cook, who went out of her way to entertain them providing local tasting and taking them out on a nature walk. Bonnie and her staff try to think of everything and if you can by chance find anything lacking all you need do is ask. Not that we needed to. If you want to be pampered in an amazing setting with good food and every whim catered for then this is the place for you. Highly recommended.
