“home away from home”
Reviewed March 5, 2010

We have been staying at “The Cherry Tree Apartments” for the last 5 years and find it to be excellent in accommodation, service, proximity to amenities and location. It offers everything that is advertised and at a very reasonable rate…in other words great value for your dollar. The accommodation has everything required for cooking and meals can be served on the lovely balcony overlooking the green areas alive with songbirds, hummingbirds and occasionally the sighting of playful monkeys. The service has always been fantastic, from the minute we are picked up from the airport by the manager (Nicole) a very amicable lady with impeccable manors who has always been on time and just a phone call away for any advice we need pertaining to site seeing or questions about the island, to the maid service provided by Marjorie, a friendly, polite lady who keeps the rooms meticulously clean. The location for us is everything we were looking for….it is far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to the beach, groceries and entertainment (about a 5-7 minute walk).
Having traveled to many parts of North America, Europe, The Mediterranean, and the British Isles, as well as other parts of the Caribbean we think of “The Cherry Tree” as a home away from home and look forward to returning again & again.
If you are looking for a quiet, friendly, garden type atmosphere, where you can sit and read or just enjoy the nature surrounding you, look no further.

Barbados is a lovely place to visit for its beautiful landscape, magnificent beaches but first of all its people. I am lucky to have a few good frieds there and hence I tend to stay for longer holidays (3-4 wks at a time). The last two times I stayed at Cherry Tree apartments as I find taht their offer suits my needs very well:
1) it is located at the quieter end of St.Lawrence Gap in close proximity to nightlife, restaurants (there's a pleasant Italian restaurant just opposite it), shops, bus stop to go into town, taxi rank, internet cafes, etc. The closest beach (Dover) is only a 5 min walk away. It takes me about 15 min to walk from one end of the Gap to another.
2) The appartments itself are clean and well maintained and have a nice garden where guests can have a BBQ, enjoy an evening drink or just relax and read a book.
3) Efficient and helpful management. The process of booking, dealing with enquiries and payment, pick-up at the airport, resolving any poblems that may arise ( I had a minor sink plug problem), etc. - everything was taken care of by managers Petra and Nicole to my satisfaction. Nicole, the manager who looks after the guests in Barbados, is at the appartments during the day most of the days during the week and is always available on her mobile. She is happy to discuss any additional requests that guests may have and tries her best to accomodate them. On this trip to Barbados she kindly offered me her own spare SIM card to use for my mobile which came extremely handy during my stay.
4) Studios have necessary kitchen amenities to make the stay comfortable, incl. a kettle, a toaster, a double rangette, a fridge and all the utensils. Bedrooms are equipped with a ceiling fan, a radio, a safe, bedside and reading lights. Bathrooms are clean.
5) Cleaning and changing of towels and linens is done 2 or 3 times a week by a friendly maid. I found the service being fully adequate and for once didnt feel guilty about tons of crispy clean linens being re-washed daily as it happens in 5 star hotels during my business travels. I guess I am trying to revert to some of the below comments and say: "Determine for yourself what budget you have, research available options and adjust your expectations to the price you're paying or go elsewhere". I would also like to address an ants issue raised in somebody's review. Barbados is a tropical island with lots of animals, birds, fish and insects including ANTS. With doors and windows open if you have food leftovers left on the table you're going to have 'guests' in any accomodation, ants just cant help it :-) Putting food away in a fridge solves the problem.
5) Safety. Cherry Tree is generally a well-secured property with access to guests only and as mentioned above safes are available in each studio for valuables.

Finally it's worth keeping in mind that the place has many repeat visitors who tend to stay for longer periods (on this trip I met a lovely German couple who were there for 7 wks), so it is advisable to book early especially during high (winter) season. I would like to mention that Cherry Tree's rate is probably the most competitive in St.Lawrence Gap (location, location!), the place does not have the frills of the 5 star hotel and is not advertised as such. It is a nice, comfortable, and safe place to stay for those on the budget, people who stay for longer periods and spend most of the time out and about exploring this beautiful island.

Cherry Trees is a quiet apartment block with pleasant, well kept grounds and friendly, helpful staff. If you are looking for a place to stay, close to the beach, amenities and nightlife look no further. The location is in a nice quiet spot on St Lawrence Gap. Everything is a short walk away - the beach, the eateries, the supermarket, the bank, the nightlife. If you want to go in to town or to the fabulous Oistins (especially the Friday night fish fry where you can mingle with the locals, enjoy freshly cooked fish and more and soak up the amazing, infectious atmosphere), the bus stops are just a short walk away too. We had a great time and will be staying at Cherry Trees again when we visit again later this year. Cynnie

I highly reccommend the Cherry Tree Apts, verry good value for money, take no notice of the review from the grumpy person from Brisbane, she probably was looking for a 5 star hotel, well look elsewhere honey! Probably didn't have the money for a 5 star hotel, hence she stayed at the Cherry Tree which is better than a 5 star hotel. Great outdoor area with barbeque and picnic area, great garden to relax in.

The staff especially Marjorie was fantastic, she was friendly and kept the bedding, towels and apartment clean and refreshed every other day, couldn't ask for more, our apartment was what is needed for a holiday, after all are you going just to stick to your room 24-7 whilst on your holidays the whole time? No, you go there for the country, great beaches and friendly bajan people.

So anyone in any doubt who wants value at a great affordable price, stay at the Cherry Tree.

Me and my husband stayed at Cherry Tree in January. It was our first time to Barbados.
Having read some bad reviews - I was concerned. I had no need to be !!!! : Some people must spend their holiday looking for fault.
We had two marvelous weeks at Cherry Tree : Nice and CLEAN studios, friendly staff and a really beautiful garden.
The location is perfect : beach, restaurants, supermarket are in a short walk.
We highly recommend this little house and we hope to return soon.

This was the worst place we stayed in... Ever! Uncomfortable beds and a very dark, scary area at night. We had to share our food with the resident cockroaches and other creatures who lived there. A tiny, tiny shower which made us feel like we needed to bathe again after using! It's just behind St Lawrence Gap but honestly, if you're going to Barbados for a holiday, choose someplace in the Gap (we very highly recommend the Yellow Bird Hotel - our honeymoon spot!). Our advice: only stay at the Cherry Tree if you love cockroaches, mosquitoes, weevils, and a wide assortment of insects, and don't mind taking a shower with your shoes on (because believe me, you won't want to take them off in there!).

  • Liked — Check-out
  • Disliked — Fighting the cockroaches for our cereal (they were huge!)
