“TRIED THE REST FOUND THE BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 for a stay in April 2013
3
people found this review helpful

We recently stayed in this excellent apartment for 42 nights, and after visiting Barbados for 20 years we found this apartment to be up there with the best we have stayed in,it was extremely comfortable and very well equipped and very clean and spacious,it has a large walk in shower,plenty of wardrobe and drawer space,and Cynthia's finishing touches i.e.the fantastic sun loungers on the balcony and the coolbox (ideal to take a couple of Banks beers down to the gardens)are a big plus.The maid service is excellent.The apartment is situated close to everything you could need especially the lovely chinese restaurant in the grounds.We would like to return very soon and would recommend this apartment to anybody
A big thank you to Cynthia & Barry

“Home from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

person found this review helpful

We have just returned after spending 32 days in this lovely apartment. Considering this is a holiday apartment it had everything you could possibly want. Beautifully decorated, lovely walk-in shower, great views and convenient for Shops, beach and restaurants. My favourite spot was on one of the very comfortable loungers on the balcony drinking my run and coke, while my husband, who is a chef, was cooking our evening meal in the kitchen, which was more than adequately stocked with equipment.
We have been coming to Barbados for 25 years and are so happy to have at last found our home from home, and will hopefully be returning to Cynthia & Barry for many more years.

“Superb Apartment - Just Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

person found this review helpful

3 weeks of sunshine and relaxtion - this 3rd floor apartment ticks all the boxes...home from home - excellent location with a view overlooking the gardens... with the Caribbean Sea in the distance...
This apartment has all the facilties you need...with ceiling fans in each room, including the balcony.. New Air Con in the Bedroom (due to the nice breeze we never needed to use).. a large fridge/freezer to keep the refreshments cool... nice...
Since our last visit...you now have a Full Throttle (Deluge) Shower in the Bathroom ..an excellent upgrade...just like the Shower in the W Hotel in Barcelona !!!
Golden View Apartments - well kept gardens and swimming pool, with a Chinese Restaurant.. eat in or take away... very nice..
Within a 10-15min walk.. you have all you need to enjoy your stay...Beach, Bars, Restaurants (Tides is our Favourite), Supermarket, Shops, Banks..

Thank you to our hosts - Cynthia & Barry...

“BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT IN PERFECT LOCATION”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

I cannot sing the praises enough about this apartment and location highly enough.
The location is excellent, easily accessible to all amenities, attractions, shopping ,bars and restaurants .The apartment is very well appointed and more than we could have hoped for.The service was excellent Cynthia & Barry were so helpful -great hosts.
The apartment did make our stay something special, if you are looking to stay somewhere with everything you need for the perfect holiday look no further,this is a fabulous apartment.
It is our intention to visit Barbados again and we will definitely be looking to stay at this apartment again.

“A very well appointed apartment with friendly hosts - a home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We have been going to Golden View for many years, and walking into Cynthia's and Barry's bright , clean and airy apartment is like coming home. There is everything you need for stress-free break – even the kitchen knives are sharp!
The decoration of the apartment is regularly refreshed so it never looks tired. And we like the Caribbean style of wicker furnishing with the splash of colour that seems to bring the garden indoors.
The lounges on the balcony are very comfortable for catching the afternoon sun. Watching the sunset from the balcony with a glass of rum punch is a great way to start an evening.
Golden View is a block of apartments with a residents' car park on one side and a pretty well kept garden on the other, containing large swimming pool and bar/restaurant. There is a handy laundrette, and the common room contains shelves of paperbacks – ideal holiday reading.
The place if very safe. There is wi-fi, easily accessible in the foyer, and I understand it is to be rolled out to the entire block.
Golden View is very peaceful. The only noise you will hear from your balcony is birdsong in the morning and Barbados's ubiquitous piping frogs in the evening – a lovely sound. You might be lucky and spot a troop of green monkeys making a dash across the garden lawn.
There are some very good restaurants within walking distance and a large supermarket and a little row of boutiques in pretty wooden chattel houses.
We have been coming to Barbados every year for over twenty years. We stay at Cynthia and Barry's apartment every time it is available and their apartment is one of the reasons why we keep going back.

“Excellent Holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

My wife and I recently had the privilege of staying in the Hooper condo for our holiday. This charming 1 bedroom condo is spacious, nicely decorated and is spotlessly clean. It has all the amenities of home including a new air conditioner. We particularly enjoyed the private balcony with a table, chairs and two lounges. It is closed in at both ends to provide maximum privacy, and overlooks lovely grounds with a very large pool and the ocean for a background. Although, not right on the ocean, it is nicely located so as to be only a 10 minute walk away, as are the restaurants and the West End Shopping Mall. We found the place to be excellent value and would not hesitate to return.

“Quiet appartment close to aminities - but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

We booked the appartment for 10 days and in general our experience was positive. It is a clean, bright, quiet appartment set in lovely grounds which includes a swimming pool and pool side Chineese restaurant. It is a 10 /15 minute walk to the local Supercentre for all groceries. It is also less than a 10 minute walk to the bus stop and the dive centre.

However, when we arrived the air-conditioning didn't work. The appartment has a housekeep that can be contacted by phone (at your cost) and the complex has a "handyman" - so it got sorted. The air conditioning unit is located in the bedroom and is not powerful enough to cool the appartment. You have to feed it with dollar coins and it is very very noisey i.e. there is no way you can sleep with it running!

There was no washing up liquid or cleaning agent to wipe the sink or surroundings. There was only 1 toilet roll. When I rang the housekeeper to request the above I was told the maid would be there on Thursday which was 3 days away. Clearly this was not acceptable and 1 toilet roll was promptly arrived while we were out. However we were informed that the owners did not supply washing up liquid or clearning material. I spoke to the owner and was told it was self catering and I should have brought my own!

Barbados is very expensive (£5 for a box of cereal) so beware - bring your own or stay somewhere that offers basic kitchen consumables such as kitchen paper, foil, salt and pepper etc., We have stayed in numerous appartments world wide where the owners pride themselves og going that little bit further to ensure you have a great stay. These extras mean to dont have to buy a litre of salad dressing to make a salad or seasoning to make a pasta dish. They make the stay memorable and mean you would recommend it to friends without any hesitation.
There are many appartments on the island and although the appartment has many positive features there are just one too many "buts".

We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us, however we were surprised at some of the low ratings you gave us.
We are considered to have one of the top six apartments in the building, the apartment was refurbished in April the pictures speak for themselves,everyone can see.
Re the a/c my housekeeper said you put in the coin but did not switch on at the main switch.The switch is next to the a/c unit. Also phone calls are free in Barbados so the call would not have cost anything

We have owned the apartment a long time and have repeat guests year after year who are more than happy with everything we provide. Sadly in your case you were not.
We do provide washing up liquid normally as previous guests can confirm I didn't realise it had run out for your arrival.
I was upset with your attitude when we do our best to make our guests comfortable.
Once again we apologise if you were unhappy.
