Cobblers Cove does as well as the Royal Fairmont. Not sure you mean by the tea served sounds like junk food. Are you referring to afternoon tea? Barbados does have alot of restaurants but you need transportation to some of them. Alot of the resorts have nothing much around them unless in the south or near to a small town.

Odin--

When you say Cobblers Cove does as well as the Royal Fairmont...as well with??

yes, I was referring to Afternoon Tea. I have not had it ever in my life...but by the description it seems very much like appetizers snacks that are sweet or small sandwiches or veggies. Am I correct?

greenie-- I wanna trust ya but I'm getting so conflicted. Perhaps I need to just bite the bullet too. Because I don't want the price of the vacation to get out of control. The AI' packages with airfare are around 1900.00-2200.00 per person. I was hoping to keep things around $4,000 for both of us. The Fairmont is in there for around 2025.00/pp and The House is in there for 2058.00. The Bouganville you mention is only 1264.00/pp but I thought it was run down? That's my main thing...I need to stay away from run down compounds.

SalsaGirl, Bougainvillea is not run down. Are you familiar with tripadvisor? Check it out on tripadvisor. We loved it. It's clean and very well run. The food and service was very good.

Of course, Bouganvillea is on the south coast between the gap and oistins. If you want west coast you'll have to bite the bullet and pay more.

We always stay on the south coast because IMHO the beaches are better and the waves are a blast!!

Peace, Greenie

Afternoon Tea is an English thing and very nice too - cup of tea with small sandwiches/cakes served around 4pm. Cobblers Cove is a non AI possibility as well as the Fairmont but am sure there are others too.

Maybe check http://www.hotel-caribbean.com/ for other options

Booked my trip last week. Due to the incredibly different responses with not really much help in the end. Thank everyone for the responses, its really difficult to decide who to listen to. We booked the Crystal Cove for 7 days in August. I have some time to change my mind if I get really scared.
