I visited Battaley's Mews with a friend in Feb 2014 and was very impressed. The apartments were huge and well maintained in a lovely complex. We had a spacious living room, spiral staircase, large kitchen, two bathrooms (one on each floor) and a private jacuzzi in our garden. There were only two of us staying there so we only had access to one bedroom, but this apartment would easily fit a large family. The pool area is nice and relaxing, although I only spent one day there given how famous Barbados is for its beaches.
There were a few issues - only one plug socket seemed to work in the kitchen area and the toaster, hairdryer and fridge were all faulty. They were all fixed when we asked but it did seem odd that all of these things were all faulty in the same apartment. The air con broke too but there was an engineer out that day to fix it.
The complex is a 5 minute walk away from Mullins Beach which is picture perfect paradise. We spent most of our time there. Car hire is a must if you want to explore the island easily. We hired one for a few days and got to travel to the East Coast, and to the South of the island to spend time on other beaches - although Mullins was our favourite. There is a bus which takes you all the way from the hotel down to Holetown, Bridgetown and Oistens for only 2BDS. Taxis are considerably more expensive but quicker!
I would definitely recommend Battaleys to anyone visiting Barbados - it was excellent value for money and well worth a visit.
