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 House, Barbados

The House, Barbados is one of the few Adult-only resorts in Barbados. On the beautiful west coast, a chic, tranquil retreat for adults to unwind in it’s understated elegance. A complimentary jet lag revival massage in a beach cabana greets you after check-in and before enjoying complimentary afternoon tea and evening canapés. Next door is the Zagat-rated Daphne’s Restaurant, in between The House and Tamarind, all properties owned by the Elegant Hotel Group. Morning brings a complimentary Champagne breakfast, a wonderful start to the day. The Elegant Group offer complimentary (have I said ‘complimentary’ too much?) water taxis to the other Elegant Hotels West Coast properties ie Crystal Cove and Colony Club.

If you don’t want to just ‘fly-and-flop’, there are plenty of activities at The House (and of course all over the island – just ask us). Motorised and non-motorised watersports are complimentary and there is a Beach Ambassador service.

The House is a very special indulgence. Reconnect with each other! Treat Yourselves!

One of the top hotels to visit in Barbados is the Fairmont Royal Pavilion, a seriously stylish Bajan sanctuary to relax and unwind, with all the elegance and sophistication of old-world charm. Stunning views over one of the best beaches in Barbados.

Arguably unrivalled facilities, with everything for families with children, little ones and teenagers entertained with treasure hunts and the whole range of watersports, meeting the funny little green monkeys that wander around the grounds or getting close up and personal with the greenback turtles who nest very close by – there are daily swims with the turtles. (note: children under 11 yrs old are only able to stay from mid-March to end of October). Time for parents or for couples; garden tours of the amazing luxurious grounds, the leisurely or invigorating watersports, a fitness centre, a game of tennis, and a concierge who will help and arrange all possibilities on and around the island.

Dining is amazing at the http://www.barbadostraveldeals.co.uk/barbados/hotels/fairmont-royal-pavillion.htmlrestaurant or the Palm restaurant, both very highly regarded on the island. All fish is sourced locally and guests can join the fisherman and catch their own Snapper or King Fish which the chef will then help prepare and cook that evening!

All guest rooms overlook the stunning sparkling Caribbean sea and if staying in a Junior Beachfront Suite, you will be fast-tracked through Customs and Immigration on arrival at the airport, you will have a butler service and complimentary canapés served on your private oceanfront balcony each evening.

And lots more. Call us at Barbados Travel Deals on 0845 6434 606 // 01977 524235 for more information and an exceptional deal to stay at the http://www.barbadostraveldeals.co.uk/barbados/hotels/fairmont-royal-pavillion.html, Barbados.

In the Sunday Times yesterday, it refers to the ‘blinged up and flashier hotels……of the west-facing Platinum coast of Barbados‘. Although the west coast is the more affluent area, there are still great lowish-costing deals on the west coast for luxury options. Staying at Tamarind or Mango Bay will deliver everything you may want. The South coast is generally more affordable but still has amazing hotels on wonderful beaches. Bougainvillea or Ocean Two are favourites for luxury but easy access to the St Lawrence Gap and Oistins nightlife. I’m not sure that I agree with ‘better for watersports and nightlife’ as I love both coasts and if you want to just sail up the west coast on a catamaran on still turquoise waters (as we do), the west coast is it. If you want to party in St Lawrence Gap every night , then maybe the South coast is for you, but restaurants and bars are in abundance in Holetown on the west coast. Wherever you are, it’s easy by public transport or taxi to get to Oistins in the South for the ‘must-do’ Saturday night street party.

Call us at Barbados Travel Deals on 0845 6434 606/ 01977 524235 for more information and to share your dreams of a perfect holiday so that we can find you that perfect holiday.

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!

After Sandy Lane, there are a handful of superior 5* hotels in Barbados. This blog looks at Cobbler’s Cove, only 4* but another favourite with the international glitterati somewhat more private.

It is one of only five hotels and restaurants in the Caribbean to be invited to be a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux organisation.

The main restaurant at Cobbler’s Cove sits at the edge of the beach and overlooks the Caribbean Sea and this perfect setting and outstanding local and international cuisine has won the Barbados Gold Award six times; you can even join an early morning trip with Barker, the hotel’s personal fisherman, and then the French trained chefs will prepare your catch for you to enjoy the same evening. Enjoy the freshest local produce on the wonderful terrace restaurant, or take afternoon tea in the sitting room of the Plantation House.

A warm and welcoming luxury hotel, with friendly and attentive staff for all your needs.

Cobbler’s Cove is a wonderfully pampered experience for those wanting true 5* accommodation and service. Call us at Barbados Travel Deals for a great deal on this exceptional holiday. 0845 6434 606/01977 524235

For a true luxury Barbados holiday, Coral Reef Club, run by the O’Hara family for almost 60 years, is a grand, even spell-binding vintage luxury hotel on the Platinum coast of Barbados. Just 88 guest rooms, each named after flowers, fruits, trees and shrubs. The five Luxury Plantation Suites are supreme and as such, get booked up well in advance. Travellers looking for beauty, space and style in coral stone and marble and maybe a private terrace with a 12′ x 9′ private pool.

Watersports are complimentary and with the offshore coral reef, snorkelling here is a must or you can learn to scuba dive or polish up on your water-skiing skills at the onsite school. All this plus exquisite dining, an exciting spa, well-stocked gym and tennis courts.

If you want to join a livelier part of the beach, it’s right next door to Colony Club. And of course, Coral Reef Club is within easy walking distance to Holetown, the main town on the west coast.
