This was our first trip to Barbados and in fact our first trip to the Caribbean. We didn’t want a large all inclusive hotel and decided to stay at Bayfield House after reading all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and we’re so glad that we did. Our room was lovely – large comfortable bed, tasteful furnishings, a safe, a fridge and the bathroom had a large walk in shower and two handbasins. This room was kept immaculately clean by the cheerful Carol. In particular we liked the veranda on the first floor where it was shaded and comfortable to sit and read or have a glass of wine (or two).
It’s in a quiet spot but close to everything. The buses run past the end of the road frequently to Speightstown, Holetown and Bridgetown and going on the buses is an experience in itself not to be missed, and all for only 2 Barbadian Dollars for any journey. We also got the bus to Bathsheba, again for only 2bbd – it’s on the East Coast, Atlantic side and beautiful – have lunch at the Atlantis Hotel. So really if you don’t want to drive you don’t need to.
Mullins Beach is across the road at the end and has chairbeds to hire, a shop and bar but we much preferred the quieter Gibbes Beach which is a 5 minute walk away. There is nothing there but sand and sea and not many people. There are plenty of trees for shade.
We hope to go again to Bayfield House and you can’t say better than that. Our thanks to Trevor, Pam, Jason and Maria – for all their helpful advice.
