We only stayed at Shades for 1 day, prior to our villa being vacated. Jackie was extremely welcoming, and made us feel like old friends. Th e room was perfect for our needs, and Shades is well located, close to Sandy Lane.

Very nice place to stay. Jacqui was helpful with anything we had questions about. We went snorkeling just minutes away from the apartment. Found a lovely guy named Spider on the beach who rented us a mask and snorkel. He pointed us to where some turtles were and a reef. We had snacks at Daphne's just up the beach. Very... More

This is our second visit to Shades and we are so glad we came back. We were in a different apartment (number 1 on the ground floor of the two-story block) and it was superb. Having a living room, bedroom and kitchen area is very convenient and we spent most of our 9 days on site. The apartment has pretty... More

Visiting Barbados for the first time with a couple of friends that visit annually, we were all impressed with our choice of location. We have booked to go back next year. Just a short walk from Paynes Beach and the local bus stop. The apartment had everything needed for self catering, albeit that we only ate breakfast "at home". The... More

Visiting Barbados to join in my daighter's wedding celebrations. We chose Shades because the gardens looked lovely on the website and I am a keen gardener. We were not disappointed. A very high standard of accommodation. Apartments very maintained and Jacqui welcomed us with a delicious rum punch cocktail which set the tone for our whole break. Pool area was... More

Jacqui was enormously helpful in booking our unusually short stay at Shades and provided a wonderful welcome on our arrival. The place is delightful and convenient for beaches, restaurants and other places of interest. The apartment was spacious and well-appointed; we would have been happy to stay longer - and share our 60th birthday celebration with the previous reviewer's 50th!

I booked the holiday on the Friday and flew out the Sunday to celebrate my 50th birthday waking up to sunshine and palm trees. It was the BEST decision I made going to Shades of Barbados. From the moment I arrived it felt like I had known the Manager all my life, she was SO welcoming and friendly. I also... More
