We're flying to Barbados on 27th December for 3 weeks. Normally, we stay at the southern palms however this year we're on more of a budget and are staying at the rostrevor. For some reason virgin would only allow us to book 17 nights at the rostrevor so we thought we'd take the opportunity to stay at the southern palms for the last 4 nights.
The problem is that the best price I can get for the southern palms for 4 nights is over £1000 which is more expensive than the hilton and is about £300 more expensive that the bougainvillea ( I've stayed at both and in my opinion, they're both better than the southern palms). If it was fantastic theyd be no hesitation but although it has some nice touches and we know the staff, it just isn't worth £250 per night.
My question is whether we should book the last 4 nights before we go or to do it when we are in Barbados in the hope that we'll get a good price for booking in person, at the last minute. I think it's a risk whereas the husband thinks we should wait.
