We decided on a short break to the Caribbean in January instead of going skiing - I was blown away by the Barbados and especially by the FRP.
Ok so there are better hotels in the world but none of them make you relax quite so quickly and provide the R&R much needed after a family Christmas.
The rooms all overlook the sea and our groundfloor room allowed me to walk from my patio to swim in the sea (approx 20m).
There is so much to do such as swim with the turtles, dive on the reef and all the watersports!
We walked nearly everywhere and I felt totally safe all the time, the people of this island are some of the most guenuine and educated people I have met accross the Caribbean and make you feel exceptionally welcome.
The highlight of the holiday for me was the number of amazing restaurants very nearby including a couple within walking distance!
All in all - Excellent - I will booking my stay for next year now! Hope you have as much fun as we did.
