Bummed Out on Barbados

Never let it be said that you can please all the people all of the time...but you certainly can please some of the people some of the time

Tampa Exotic Travel Examiner: "While I wouldn’t recommend Barbados for travelers on a budget or as a one-day wonder, its west-coast resorts are great for an extended stay. The pink- and white-sand beaches are world class, and most hotels offer outstanding cuisine with top-notch (and expensive) restaurants available via cab on a reservation basis. My wife Kelly and I stayed for three nights at the lovely Treasure Beach Hotel (www.treasurebeachhotel.com) about two years ago. Our villa faced a pool shaded by gorgeous trees, and only a few feet beyond the beach and Caribbean Sea. During our stay we enjoyed golf, fishing and trying new cuisine such as a flying fish sandwich (I didn’t like it).

By all means consider Barbados in a Caribbean itinerary, but I’d pass unless it’s part of a package deal that includes a few more interesting locations (like St. Thomas and Antigua)."

Ships galore | Barbados Today

 Barbados Today: "More than 12,000 visitors are expected here on seven ships to the Bridgetown Port tomorrow.

Even as the Barbados Port Inc reports this as a positive development, particularly for tourism stakeholders, the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry believes a good mixture of taxis and tour operators could perhaps help to spread the possible benefits around in moving the visitors from place to place."
