Designed with families in mind, this four-story hotel (with elevators) sits on a beautiful stretch of south-coast beach—and offers tremendous value. For the price of your room, you can enjoy activities ranging from beach volleyball or miniature golf to nature walks. If you like real golf, special packages are offered in conjunction with the nearby Barbados Golf Club. So grab a Boogie board or a kayak and hit the water, or take a scuba-diving lesson in the pool. Join the aerobics class in the pool or in the gym. Or sit by one of three pools (one for kids) and socialize while working on your tan. Poolside meals are leisurely and informal. At night, the main restaurant specializes in Caribbean seafood with a Mediterranean influence, whereas Veneto's is pure Italian. Children can eat early, and a staff member will watch the kids if parents want a special dinner alone at one of the restaurants.
