I often get asked this question and the truth is that you can travel to Barbados any time of year. There are however, various compromises that you may need to make. The weather is changing worldwide, and so these are generalisations based on many decades of historical measurement, but no guarantees. That said, in terms of the weather, the best months are still January through to April, as they are the least rainy and the least humid, and they tend to be a couple of degrees Centigrade cooler than other times of year. The official hurricane season for the whole region is June to November, with any potential major storms occurring between August and October. This doesn’t stop families pouring in during the summer holidays from around the world – possibly because it is understood that Barbados, being the most easterly island in the Caribbean, means that it usually escapes direct hits. If you travel in the late summer or autumn, there is a much higher likelihood of rain.

I’ll admit that one trip in September a few years ago, we had three full days of torrential rain. My husband (Bajan) had never seen anything like it. Having said that, we still had an amazing time and I have never had feedback from any of my September Clients (or even family living in Barbados) which has matched our exceptional trip. So don’t let this put you off September as it is humid and potentially rainy but it has it’s advantages. Price! and if you want a quieter trip, most of the travelling families have gone back to work and school.

So price, well the weather plays an enormous part (along with UK holidays of course). Christmas and New Year are premium prices for flights and accommodation – very much so, as it is such a wonderful place to be for the season. The top hotels are full very early in the year. Flights are taken up well ahead of time, leaving the more expensive seats for late-comers, if at all. Still worth trying if you’re interested. If there is any availability, Barbados Travel Deals will find it. Hotel and Villa rates are also much higher from mid-December to mid-April than at other times of year.

May is a great time to travel as the weather is still lovely and the prices have started to drop significantly. June prices are some of the best, with a slight risk of rain. If you want to go in the winter without the huge cost, November and early December are good. If school holidays are a must, then the May half term will be more cost-effective than the Christmas, Easter or summer holidays.

The only other thing to consider is that the quiet months of September and October are often the time that hotels use to close and renovate and some restaurants and bars may be closed. It is true, but I’ve never found it to be a problem. If there’s somewhere you really want to visit, just ask us and we can tell you if it’s open or not.

That’s it for now. Just call us at Barbados Travel Deals on 0845 6434 606 or 01977 524235 or email at info@barbadostraveldeals.co.uk to get some further advice or options for different dates.

The fabulous-looking Sandals LaSource Grenada has moved the opening of its resort in Grenada from December 12th to December 21st, due to “adverse weather conditions and other operational challenges.”

“This is a profound disappointment and we sincerely regret the impact this delay will have on our guests, our partners and team members in Grenada,” Sandals CEO Adam Stewart said in a statement, whilst offering Clients who have booked, a very favourable compensation package.

This hotel does however, look amazing and one that this Agent hopes to be recommending to Clients in the near future. Stewart writes that it “will set new standards of hospitality”

In the meantime, the Sandals resorts across the Caribbean have a new addition in Barbados which will be followed by a ‘Beaches’ family resort where the Almond Village used to be. This blogger quite recently wrote about the Casuarina resort in Barbados having been hugely renovated and managed by the ‘Couples’ resorts but was then bought by Sandals who are now putting their stamp on it.

For any of the Sandals resorts throughout the Caribbean, Barbados Travel Deals have great offers. Discuss the various islands with us and let us help you find your dream holiday. Call 01977 524235 // 0845 6434 606 or email info@barbadostraveldeals.co.uk

The Elegant Hotels Group continues to gather accolades from various Travel Industry bodies including a Gold Magellan award for The House in the Standard Room Design category and a Silver in the Upscale Resort/Hotel category. All five properties and Daphne’s received the 2013 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence award.

Colony Club reopened on 1 October unveiling the new restaurant and rooms which had been renovated during the September closure.

The House is now Number 1 on TripAdvisor due to their impeccable service. The reviews are wonderful!

Crystal Cove’s latest upgrades are mainly focused on the outdoor and dining areas. With new stylish pool deck furniture and an overhaul of Drifters restaurant, now their Reflections restaurant will present an equally stylish new look. Also great news that Crystal Cove will be introducing all day dining.

And Turtle Beach will also be focussing on their outdoor and dining areas, updating all three restaurants during the next few months.

And with the lovely Tamarind hotel, that makes up the five Elegant Hotel Group’s Barbados properties covering West and South, All-Inclusive and various board options, Adult only and family-friendly.

If you want to spend Christmas and/or New Year in Barbados, you need to sort it now! There are very very limited flights around the critical times and sometimes you will have to pay extra to get an Upper Class seat just to get you there!

If you call me at Barbados Travel Deals, I can check all available options and if not Barbados for your dates, look at other options in St Lucia, Grenada or other similar to get you the holiday you’re hoping for.

Please consider now. Don’t leave it any longer as these islands – particularly Barbados – are incredibly popular (and sadly expensive) for this wonderful holiday time!

I hate disappointing people and have so many Clients getting disappointed because their exact flight dates are not available and they have to compromise.

Let Barbados Travel Deals get you the Christmas and/or New Year that you’re dreaming of. Call 0845 6434 606 or 01977 524235 asap.

Exciting news that the new COUPLES BARBADOS resort is open!!
This brand new All-Inclusive adult-only resort is sited where the Almond Casuarina was, on the South coast on the beautiful Dover Beach at the far end of St Lawrence Gap and thus easy to walk into ‘the Gap’.

I am not well known for supporting the All-Inclusive service in Barbados, as I so want people to get out and about, but I do believe that it has it’s place. Certainly for wedding parties, and I believe that Couples Barbados is going to be a wonderful wedding destination. I only dismiss All Inclusive as I implore visitors to get out and about on the island as the island is your resort. Provided that’s understood, All Inclusive is of course perfect in order to manage your budget or simply not to worry about money once you arrive. Couples resort offers complimentary trips out and about on the island so I will be reviewing my All Inclusive concerns in a very positive light for this hotel. It ensures you see plenty of what Barbados has to offer without extra cost. Great!!

Couples Barbados has three wonderful restaurants, five bars, three freshwater swimming pools, a spa, a gym, floodlit tennis courts, plenty of different room types and many ‘extras’ that go the extra mile to make All Inclusive feel just that! Keep watching this blog for more info on those extras.

If you’re thinking of getting married in Barbados, there are many wonderful spots, but I believe that Couples Barbados is going to be highly successful following in the footsteps of its Couples resorts in Jamaica – elegant, romantic retreats that make you feel special.

Call Barbados Travel Deals on 01977 524235 / 0845 6434 606 or email info@barbadostraveldeals.co.uk to get more information or simply to book a heavenly holiday, wedding or honeymoon!

Conde Nast Traveller awards Palm Island in St Vincent and the Grenadines with 2012 ‘Top 100 best hotels in the world’. Their readers’ choice awards.

At the World Travel Awards, Palm Island has been named ‘The World’s Leading Private Island’.

Caribbean Travel & Life ranks it amongst the Caribbean’s ‘most romantic resorts’.

Travel & Leisure says it is ‘one of the best places to stay in the world’.

Palm Island Resort is a very special 135-acre island in The Grenadines, close to St Vincent, reached generally via a short flight from Barbados to Union Island, followed by an 10 minute ride by private launch to the exclusive private island.

See our other blogs on this wonderful island and call us at Barbados Travel Deals to get a great deal and plenty of information to help you arrange your perfect holiday.

Although debatable, when a Client asks me for somewhere a bit ‘different’ in Barbados, I almost always go straight for Little Arches and Little Good Harbour. Two very different properties with the former being in the South, close to St Lawrence Gap and all it’s fun life in the evenings and particularly close to Oistins for the friday night street party and wonderful fish fry, bringing locals and tourists from all over the island. The latter, Little Good Harbour is on the west coast but north of the ‘West Coast strip’ of hotels, closer to Speightstown, a charming little non-touristy, almost run-down looking town (look for the charming as there’s plenty to find). Little Good Harbour has the famous Fishpot restaurant and it’s fishing village offers it’s own Friday fish fry. The only potential downside to Little Good Harbour is that it’s easier to get out and about with a car – hence the real hideaway feeling.

Call us at Barbados Travel Deals to chat about it as there is still public transport – and obviously taxis – that can take you into the more populated areas if you wanted. An escape from Barbados glitz right in Barbados!

Although Barbados Travel Deals’ website promotes the most luxurious of the luxury hotels in Barbados, from Sandy Lane 5plus * to Bougainvillea, a wonderful 4* mainly self-catering hotel on the South coast, we still offer fabulous holidays in 3* (and less) accommodation, such as Coconut Court, Butterfly Beach, All Seasons Resort etc. I stayed in many hotels on the South Coast in my early visits and have a great fondness for the South Coast. For such a small island, the vibe is quite different on the West and South Coasts (the Caribbean Sea side) and although the West Coast shouts of affluence and super-luxury, the South Coast has a different charm and still boasts luxury holidays aplenty – Little Arches is a case in point.

Barbados Travel Deals can find you apartments to stay in, to act as a base for you to surf, dive, or simply get to know the island. Talk to us.

Elegant Hotels, the company which owns five hotel properties on Barbados, is considering the addition of a further property on the beautiful island and to further expand onto other Caribbean islands, such as St. Lucia and Antigua.

With the All Inclusive Turtle Beach on the South Coast, perfect for family havens, then Crystal Cove, The House, Tamarind and Colony Club on the platinum West Coast, all 4* or 5* recommended hotels. Crystal Cove is also All Inclusive, and The House is for adults only and next door – with Daphne’s restaurant in between – to the livelier Tamarind on that wonderful stretch of beach.

For me, the Elegant Group have got it right. Their properties are lovely with a continual refurbishing programme, they offer service excellence and their visitors return year after year, hence them wanting to offer other islands and thus becoming a Caribbean hotel company.

The Sandpiper is one of the most exclusive small hotels in the West Indies. It is owned by the same O’Hara family who own the Coral Reef Club, which is about 10 minutes away due north on the west coast of Barbados.
Coral Reef Club offers some more facilities and there is an exchange dining programme if you’re staying on Half Board. The Sandpiper, whilst child friendly (not the noisy ones), is adult only between 15th January and 15th March and this period gets repeat bookings well ahead of time. For sheer luxury, there are two treetop suites which offer wonderfully spacious, chic and contemporary living.

The Sandpiper hotel sits right in the heart of Holetown so everything is right on your doorstep if you want to get away from the sheer relaxation and hit the new designer shopping centre or dine out.

Book early with Barbados Travel Deals to enjoy the luxury that is The Sandpiper hotel, Barbados.
