Portzvue Villa exceeded expectations in every respect. We were a group of 3 Canadian couples visiting Barbados for the 1st time and, while Speightstown may seem a little out of the way, it was perfect. Five minute walk to a fabulous beach and another ten to shopping, restaurants and center of town. The villa is extremely comfortable, clean, well equipped and well managed (thank you Sonia). The pool was SUCH a bonus - lighted for evening swims and immaculately clean. We rented a vehicle, but next time we will rely on public transit ... it was easy and reliable. Finally, the locals were warm and welcoming ... wonderful folks. Very highly recommended accommodations for Barbados ... truly fabulous.
