So, we flew into Barbados late at night...around 10:30pm. A very long day on numerous airplanes. We staggered out of the airport to the long line of taxis, where a gentleman offered to take us to the Silver Point, since he knew where it was. There was no TAXI sign on the car, and it just looked like a private car inside. We were too tired to care. He said he would "take us on a short cut", which took us around the end of the airport, on dirt roads, through back alleys, past grassy fields, up a hill, down a switchback, around corners, past goats & chickens, well you get the idea. We were wondering seriously if this was how our lives would end...in some random alley in the back streets of Barbados.
All of a sudden, he shouts "Here we are!!!" and he pulled up to the hotel's entrance. I guess we'll die another day :)
From that point on, our stay was great. Check in and check out were easy, the room was nice, clean and functional, if not fancy. We got good wi-fi, even from across the street. We had an amazing breakfast on the deck overlooking the beach, and the deck had numerous daybeds for guest use, which was an unexpected surprise.
The beach wasn't great for swimming on that particular day, but the water was warm and the scenery was breathtaking.
When it came time to leave, we asked the desk to call us a taxi. This time, the van had a TAXI sign on the roof, and it was obviously a real cab. We couldn't wait to see the "real" route back to airport, now that it was daylight. Guess what? He took the EXACT same route, turn-for-turn, alley-for-alley, as the previous driver!!! We had a good laugh about it.
By the way, to all previous reviewers - those aren't crickets, they are whistling tree frogs.
