We still like Barbados, but the beach at the SLHOA was really crowded this year during the Xmas-New Year's week. It wasn't like that when we were there 4 years ago. Amberley house is okay, but nothing special. We have found that the people who work in a house really make or break the experience and this house doesn't really have a staff which was not clear from the get go. Having a cook come in is not the same as having someone who works there regularly. Also, the house is not equipped to handle a group our size more details on that below. I think the photos misrepresent the house as well, because you expect the living room to be the room you see in the photos, but this is really a room off to the side not the main area.
