We arrived back from Shades at the end of March following our second brilliant holiday there.We stay in apt 5 which is a lovely ground floor apt with a private terrace,apt 5 is a one bedroom apt with lovely walk in shower room,kitchen with everything you need and lounge area with flat sreen tv and lots of sports and film channels.There is a swimming pool set in beautiful gardens which we had to ourselves most of the time.Jacqui,Errol and Errols dad are the friendliest people and nothing is too much trouble.Jacqui will advise you on trips,transportand restaurants and will even take you to the supermarket when you arrive.You can order your groceries to be delivered by the local supermarket before you arrive which we did,when we arrived Jacqui and Errol had taken them into our apt putting some in fridge including a few bottles of beer.
Barbados is a beautiful island and Shades is a 2 min walk from one of the lovely beaches.
It is quite expensive to eat out in Barbados so we ate out about 6 times whilst we were there, on the other nights we went to Daphnes for happy hour cocktail 5-7 to watch the sunset.One of our favorite places to spend an evening is MR VICS he and Karen will make you very welcome and they serve good food and reasonably priced drinks.Mr VICS is 5 mins from Shades and even though you cannot compare it with CIN CIN or TIDES we spent some of our best nights there.
Our favorite restaurants are CIN CIN,it is amazing with beautiful sea views and good food,TIDES (we cant decide between these 2).We also enjoyed Beachouse and Spagos and we love Vics.
On the nights we stayed in we either cooked food from the supermarket or got a takeaway from the roadside chefs which set up near the main road Thur -Sat (try the shrimp kebabs) and sat on our terrace at Shades.
If you are thinking of trying SHADES i am sure you will not be disappointed.
