When I wrote last about The House, Barbados, I hadn’t realised that it has won an award with Traveller’s Choice as 4th best Romantic hotel in the Caribbean. Yay!! and is now the top of the Trip Advisor ratings for hotels in Barbados at 97%. Now I know everyone should take these number with a pinch of salt but…… can’t help it. When Tamarind went through it’s complete refurb, I watched as the Trip Advisor ratings climbed – but it was slow due to some previous ratings, which was a shame if people do follow TripAdvisor religiously.

But I had planned to speak of a completely different hotel in this blog. That of the Bougainvillea on the South Coast. It’s so easy if you have read all the blurb about the affluent West Coast, to miss out on the joys of the South Coast. Particularly if a family. No, even a couple or single. Yes, the seas are calmer on the west coast, but depending on the time of year, are still very calm in the South. Bougainvillea sits on a fabulous stretch of beach and has two great restaurants. You can self-cater, there is a small convenience store nearby, or you can easily ‘bus’ it to the Big B supermarket and they will bring you home. I would recommend having breakfast there and self-cater the rest. Barbados Travel Deals can give you all sorts of tips for eating out without the fine dining tag.

5 mins drive – or local transport (see earlier posts or ask us, to see how easy) to St Lawrence Gap where there are lots of restaurants and bars and Oistins, a few mins further, for your Friday night fish supper cooked on the site and with a party atmosphere with locals and tourists alike.

Talk to us at Barbados Travel Deals if you’re interested in Bougainvillea but want to know more. Call us on 01977 524235 or email at Happy to chat.

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.

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.

For understated and affordable luxury in Barbados, consider Bougainvillea Beach Resort. On Maxwell beach in the South of the island, it has a great location, within walking distance of St Lawrence Gap and close to Oistins for your Friday night dinner and entertainment. The staff are lovely and service is exemplary. From simple studios to two-bedroomed deluxe suites, all their accommodation is exceptionally appointed and spacious. There is a reasonably priced small supermarket to walk to and Bougainvillea also provide a complimentary shuttle to the large supermarket, altho their restaurants ‘Lanterns’ and ‘Water’s Edge’ bring diners from all over the island. Such a special place and yet affordable prices.
