Fodor's Expert Review Peach and Quiet
Inch Marlow Main Rd., Inch Marlowe, Christ Church, Barbados
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Forgo the flashy accoutrements of a resort and, instead, claim one of the stylish suites in this small seaside inn just east of Oistins. With no in-room noisemakers and no children around, the only sounds you will hear are the gentle surf and your own conversations. Hands-on British owners Adrian and Margaret Loveridge have been running Peach since 1988 and are constantly renovating and refurbishing the property—perhaps one reason it's closed half the year. Decor in the spacious suites, arranged in whitewashed Mykonos-inspired buildings, is elegantly spare. Cooled by ceiling fans, each suite also has a large terrace or balcony; however, bathrooms have showers only. Besides lazing in the freshwater pool and windsurfing at nearby beaches (a five-minute walk), you'll enjoy swimming and snorkeling in a natural "rock pool," joining early-morning or late-afternoon walks, and stargazing at night. You're advised to rent a car.
