Trip Report Barbados Trip Review

Jump to last reply

We enjoyed a week on the island with the family after my husband returned from a 6 month overseas deployment. We stayed at Jacaranda Villa in Gibbes Glade and loved that - 3 bedroom, 4 full bath villa with 2 pools - one indoor and one outdoor. Great staff too. Rented through Bajan Services.

Also enjoyed our favorite restaurants which include The Tides, Champers, Mullins and Naru. A new restaurant we thoroughly enjoy is Cin Cin by the Sea (Larry Rogers new place). We went for the first few times in October 2011 and could not wait to return this visit. More indepth reviews and personal photos can be found at my blog at: www.barbadostips.com

All businesses and attractions told us business is down due to the worldwide economic crisis that is still ongoing. As a result it was easier to get reservations at various places.

We had a wonderful holiday and we're already busy planning our 33rd trip in the near future.
