We had an absolutely wonderful holiday at the Palm Beach Condominiums in Holetown on the west coast of Barbados. The facilities and location were perfect - simply first class.
The condo managers, Pat and Chris, welcomed us on our arrival. Pat had arranged for us to be picked up from the airport and she had put our pre-ordered pack of groceries in the condo.
Everyone was very helpful and they made us feel comfortable. It was very personal staying there. You can stay at any hotel, and they wouldn't give you the familiarity we experienced at the condos.
The housekeeper was very friendly and she kept the place spotless.
The gardens and the lovely swimming pool were kept very tidy. It was great just walking down the garden and on to the beach – especially at sunset.
We purchased delicious take-away breakfasts from the nearby Patisserie Flindt. There are plenty of places where you can eat and drink – and the shopping mall is only a short walk away.
We didn’t really need to rent a car because everything you need is within Holetown. It was great to see the rest of the island though – including visiting the east coast and Bottom Bay and Foul Bay on the south east coast.
We kept the condo right up until the time we had to leave for the airport - late afternoon - and that was great because there was no extra charge as there is with most hotels.
We would certainly recommend Palm Beach to friends, family and colleagues. It was everything we expected – and more. We wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else and are already looking forward to going back !
