This is one of the world's great hotels, but not in the sense of the Savoy or George V... The location on its own bay with enough land for three golf courses stretching back behind the hotel is wonderful. You are, however, removed from any but the most general sense of being on Barbados. And most of the guests are money or media.
The staff are low key and friendly, apart from a slight tendency to whip away your plate before you've quite finished the last mouthful. Obviously enough, the food is mostly amazing and if you don't want to eat at the hotel then Carib and The Cliff near by are both world class in their way.
Our vast balcony looked out at the sea and the horizon, and watching the sun set each day across the water was something I'll remember forever.
An experience (probably to be repeated).
