This was our 1st trip to Barbados, and what an excellent choice we made by choosing #9 Palm Beach in Holetown. Good location close to a supermarket, restaurants, and shops. Besides the condo being immaculate, everything was provided that you could possibly want or need; they've thought of everything. We appreciated the full kitchen and all utensils etc., and the wonderfully cool bedroom with it's super comfy king bed. (There are both ceiling fans and air conditioners in the bedroom and living room, although we found the portable air conditioner in the living room not strong enough for us, but that's just us as we like it quite cold inside when hot outside, but it wasn't that bad.) Super security being on the ground floor, no worries there, and we were blown away by the fact that the lovely swimming pool was just literally steps outside our patio door, where we had wonderful padded chairs and ottomans with a table for enjoying a drink or meal or just relaxing outside. The beachfront was only not many steps away from the pool, which was beautiful, and we happened to have the pool to ourselves most times. Pure heaven! Irene who does the booking is the kindest, friendliest, most helpful person you could ask for. Any question she will answer and nothing is too much trouble for her and always comes with a quick response. Marianne, our chambermaid, was an absolute treasure and sweetheart as well. We have no hesitation in reccommending Palm Beach #9 and would definitely book it again if we'd be so lucky to be able to return to Barbados in the future. (Only 2 negatives which didn't bother us at all, but might if you have children. The first night there was a dog barking non-stop the whole night, and the rest of the time but not non-stop but could really only hear him in the bathroom, and the resort next door plays music from 7 to 11 every night.) Otherwise, fantastic, lovely place; didn't want to leave!!!
