We stayed at apartment 405 from 8-22nd June 2013. I can only say as far as we were concerned it was excellent. It was clean, comfortable, and well equipped. Although, I think we only switched the TV on twice. The grounds and the pool area were excellent, and I'd challenge anyone to find a location on the West Coast with similar gardens at the price we paid. Sitting on the balcony at dusk drinking rum before and after we'd been out out eat was enjoyable, watching the birds catching insects was addictive. we also sat and listened to the local radio station, which is a must if you want to get an angle on Caribbean music.
At first we found the long walk down the corridor to the apartment a bit long. However, after a long hot day by the beach, there was nothing more relieving than the cool wind blowing down the corridor, so after a while we were quite glad of that little walk.
the only minor suggestion I have, the owners leave an excellent information pack in the apartment, which as all sorts of tips, suggestions and ideas that go towards making your holiday all the more enjoyable. However, if we had been able to access this pack before we departed for Barbados, it would have been even better for us, as we had already made bookings for trips and hire cars etc. Would it be possible to e-mail the pack once the final payment has been made. As I said its only a minor suggestion.
All in all I would highly recommend this apartment.
