After an extensive trip advisor search for a honeymoon in barbados we chose 2 hotels. the first little arches- absolutely amazing- and for our second week little good harbour.
The reviews of LGH ,( except one) are spot on. If you want the glitz and footballers wife type hotel this is not for you. If you want to be away from it all in the real old barbados right on the sea front and with excellent service...this is for you.
One reviewer rather nastily said tiny beach..noisy road....typical person who clearly wants to be in all inclusive boring hotel!!
It is true there is hardly any beach now due to storm damage..but not LGH fault. There are still little gazebos to lie in on the beach front and then straight into the water which is so clear! swim out to the diving platform and sunbathe to your hearts content! As for the road...it is a normal road...really not busy at all!!
We stayed in the 2 bedroom fort suite! It is fantastic. It is over the fishpot restaurant and has a huge living room and kitchen...looks exactly like on the website..wooden floors....you can hear the ocean below...has a wonderful veranda so you can watch the sunset..even has a cooling outdoor shower! 2 bedrooms with 1 four poster and mosi nets and fab bathrooms with powerful showers!
You will need a car at this ened of the island....but then that is what is so good you have the freedom to explore barbados and see the caves..go to lots of restaurants (or get a cab so you can drink!)
You must drive down the east coast and see all the deserted beaches too!
The fishpot restaurant at LGH is amazing...the best fish and steaks anywhere. It is right on the sea and has amazing views and the service is top. Also a fab selection of wine and cocktails. SO if you dont want to leave LGH you dont need too!!
We found the staff at LGH so helpful, we got a late checkout with no problems.
As for beaches you can walk to 2 in 30 seconds...no one on them at all!! Or if you like sunloungers and watersports a quick 5 min drive to Port St charles.
As for restuarants near by...you must try The Tides in Holetwon...excellent..and Daphnes in St James...v expensive but worth it....be prepared for a large hangover though as the cocktails are just too good!!
SO to sum up...if you want a peaceful beautiful quiet hotel where you can be very self sufficient, fab food. great swimming in clear sea and really away from all the west coast hustle and bustle this is for you. If you want all inculsive hotel with multiple pools and lying on a busy beach with hundreds of others , i suggest you try sandy lane!!
It was the best holiday we have ever had!
