I just returned from Barbados about two weeks ago and i must say I fell in love. I am still talking about this house and how amazing it was. It was 6 females and we all know females take a long time but having 4 full bathrooms was absolutely what we needed to get us up and out the house. The bedrooms were so comfy and spacious each room had an ac and a closet which was great to organize our clothing. Kitchen had everything we needed and there was more than enough dining space. The pool was small but that’s all we needed to refresh from the bajan sun. Of course the location was also a plus. The house is located across the street from the Fairview Pavillion hotel which was so convinient as a land mark and also for a nice beach day or night. We had dinner at jujus shack about a 5 minute walk away it’s hidden so ask around. It has great local food and flying fish, and an amazing view to end your day. Also we didn’t take a cab to get around we hopped right on the bus which cost $1 or $2 we went to different towns just on the bus alone. It was great such a small island you literally cannot get lost. The bus runs up and down the road right outside the house. Also we booked an excursion and we told them that we were staying at the Fairmont Pavillion and the hotel had no problem letting us go into the lobby and wait for our van to pick us up. Definitely a plus. The locals were very helpful directing our way around Bridgetown and back to Holetown. This house is also located in small gated community which gives you comfort knowing that only people with a key can come inside. I would definitely come back and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. Thank you to Jacintha that was also very helpful with everything!
My family and I had a great stay at Glitter Bay. We went during the off season (in june). The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable as they had no reviews posted when we booked. Sylvie is so sweet! The manager of the property had transportation waiting for us at the airport! The beds were comfortable for most of our family members, they were on the firm side. The only con was that the supper table was outside on the deck. It was under a roof, but yet- still outside. Plenty of couches, chairs both inside and out to lounge around on if you needed a break from the sun. The air conditioners worked well (one in living area, others in bedrooms). Bring DVD's to watch at night in the bedrooms as the wifi works well in the main living area but not so well in bedrooms. The beach was clean and SO SO SO close! The water was turquoise and a tiny bit rocky, but nothing that prevented us from enjoying the sea. The pool area was great with a cute little bridge over the water and a tiny little waterfall that my teenagers loved getting pictures for Instagram! Staff members were friendly, especially George the landscaper! The boutiques and shops were not comfortably in walking distance, but a walk down the beach did have some restaurants and interesting people to meet. And Kirk, the taxi driver was available to take us anywhere we wanted to go! And if he could not get to us, he sent a driver. He, and other staff members helped us navigate to the best ice cream shop, shopping and grocery stores. We saw 5 monkeys during our stay! One even was carrying a baby monkey! And my youngest daughter found so many lizards, teeny tiny frogs, and even a mongoose! We all had a blast! I definitely recommend this property!
