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.

I’m regularly asked about the cost of eating out in Barbados. My view is that it is as expensive or as cheap as you’d like. The restaurants always highlighted are the fine dining more costly restaurants, such as The Cliff, more about the wonderful ambience and experience. Yes, dining in such places may well be hundreds of pounds but you can go and savour the experience over a cocktail or two instead.

I am still in the anti-All Inclusive in Barbados brigade, but simply because Barbados does not offer the huge All Inclusives like Mexico, Dominican Republic etc, where you don’t really leave your enormous ‘compound’. Despite this, in Barbados Mango Bay and Crystal Cove are firm favourites and Turtle Beach and Casuarina are all great All Inclusive options if you have kids or want to fix your budget.

But Barbados is about the island. Barbados Travel Deals will advise on cheaper places to eat, the street vendors, the ‘white van’ vendors, the fish fries (Oistins in particular) and the supermarkets offering wonderful cooked local food. Alcohol is cheap if you stick to their (light) Banks beer and Mount Gay or Cockspur rum. You don’t need bottled water as Barbados has one of the cleanest water supplies in the world (filtered naturally through limestone) but don’t take my word on that – I just always drink tap water there. Groceries are costly at the supermarket, but it is an island and so most is imported. Look for local foodstuffs and give it a go.

Come to us at Barbados Travel Deals and we will offer plenty of advice and then once booked, we will send you all the information you may need to suit your needs.

If you want to be close to a local town for dining and nightlife, it’s quite simple in Barbados. If you’re on the west coast, you are generally close to Holetown eg. Mango Bay, Colony Club, Coral Reef Club, The Sandpiper to name but a few within walking distance, or a little further north, the smaller Speightstown, closer to Cobbler’s Cove, Little Good Harbour or Sugar Cane Club. In the South, the closest ‘centre’ would be St Lawrence Gap, two All Inclusive hotels on it’s doorstep are Turtle Beach and Casuarina. Strewn along the way there are lovely oceanfront bars and restaurants and even open air nightclubs playing Calypso, Reggae, Soca (Soul Calypso) and R&B. It’s always great to find a local band playing at Harbour Lights or The Boatyard , both near Bridgetown or at the Reggae Lounge in St Lawrence Gap. To add to the evening entertainment on offer, take a romantic cruise in the moonlight or take in a show extravaganza with dinner or just simply quietly relax just about anywhere. Barbados has it all! And whatever you do, don’t miss the Friday fishfry at Oistins (south of the Gap)!

Talk to us at Barbados Travel Deals if you want to ensure that you choose a well-placed hotel for all your needs.

I am always a tad biased (I try not to be – honest) when people want to book All Inclusive in Barbados and yet those who book Mango Bay, Crystal Cove and Turtle Beach go back and back and back. Sad that Almond Beach Village - the largest – has closed, but Almond Casuarina is another great affordable option. Maybe I’m missing out on not doing All Inclusive in Barbados. For families, I understand totally and even for some couples who simply want to stick to a budget as much as possible, I understand, but for those who want to spend more time getting to know the island, we at Barbados Travel Deals can help out with places to dine without the ‘fine dining’ price that comes with much of the wondeful fine dining in Barbados.

Talk to us at Barbados Travel Deals where we can advise on All Inclusive options and the various other options if – and only if – you’re interested.

For a luxury All Inclusive Barbados hotel in a boutique-style resort on the wonderful west coast of Barbados, then Mango Bay is for you!

As with so many hotels in Barbados, I would recommend the Oceanfront rooms. At Mango Bay Barbados, the Oceanfront rooms are at the west end of each of the first three floors of the main building – this places them parallel to the beach, therefore providing a full Ocean view. Above on the fourth floor, there are also two Penthouse Suites at Mango Bay. These suites provide panoramic ocean views and have a separate living area. 

Mango Bay is so convenient for restaurants, bars, shopping, banking etc. as all is in Holetown on the doorstep. And take a walk along that beautiful beach and go for lunch at Sandy Lane. Why not have it all!

Mango Bay is an excellent choice for those looking for a boutique Barbados hotel and indeed the Mango Bay will make a great base for your Barbados holidaysCall us now on 0845 6434 606 to find out more about the Mango Bay and get an unbeatable deal at the same time!
