Its a small privately owned complex so will never be full as not all the apartments are let out at any one time - thats a good thing! Its quiet, up-market and well located for Hometown (just a 5 mins bus ride or a 30 min walk if you fancy it). The manager Tanya is one of the nicest people... More

This was our first trip to Barbados and Glitter Bay exceeded all expectations. We stayed in Twin Palms (411) and it did not disappoint in any way. The appartment was immaculate and provided everything you could want during a holiday and more. Our housekeeper Chauntel came in 6 days a week and kept the place spotless. Our agents Anoushka/Christina were... More

We are currently on a three week holiday in Barbados. We have one week at the Glitter Bay apartments. It is really lovely here, well managed and with a beautiful, clean beach just 80 feet away from our large ground floor terrace. The staff are lovely. The only drawback is Holetown, the nearest town and a bit of a dump,... More

This was our 2nd visit to Glitter Bay 306 (our first being May 2013) & our 5th trip to Barbados. The fact we tend not to return to the same place twice speaks volumes about how lovely GB & the Princess Suite are. On arrival, we were greeted with a "welcome home" by a representative from Tigerlily concierge services who... More

We returned to Glitter Bay after a 12 year break. We were not disappointed. Everything was exactly the same as before! The same superb service, large clean rooms, right on the beach. We stayed in room 214 (Calypso). We were met at our room by the manageress of the hotel, who showed us around personally, even though it was about... More

This was our first trip to Barbados and we stayed in a nicely appointed one-bedroom condominium for seven days. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly Tanya, the General Manager, and Barbara our housekeeper. A nice and unexpected surprise was that the refrigerator was stocked with juices, milk, bottled water, cereal, grapes, eggs, bread and butter to help us get... More

Had a great time a glitter bay with our 2 girls. 8 and 10 years old. Marilil and Joe take care of all needs. Duncan and the guys there make you feel so welcome. Lovely vibe, tasteful apartments with daily cleaner who was superb. we really had a dream Christmas holiday. We'll defiantly re-book.

Currently staying in a lovely 1 bedroomed apartment at Glitter Bay - booked with Royal Glitter Bay villas. The beach is excellent with easy access to watersports if you feel inclined! Watching the beautiful sunsets from the beach bar with a rum cooler made by the friendly staff has become one of our favourite past-times. The apartment is immaculate and... More

We were recommended Glitter Bay by some very fussy friends and this did not disappoint. The properties are situated on one of the very best beaches in Barbados. Our apartment was spacious and easy with maid service 6 days a week. There is a charming beach bar which also serves light lunches - perfect for our days on the beach.... More
