Sugar HIll is on the West coast of Barbados in St James bordering the Caribbean Sea, wonderful for swimming and all watersport activities. At most hotels there is on offer water skiing, snorkeling and diving. Just drive otothe hotel and tell security that you are going ot the water sports area. Or call ahead and reserve time with your selected water spots facility. Fishing boats are on hire for deep sea fishing, there are many day and night trips on a variety of boats with snorkeling with lunch and drinks included.

If you prefer to explore the island and are interested in history, drive into The Garrison area which has recently become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is unique because it has survived intact, the buildings are now used for other purposes, becoming homes and business premises. Go to St Anns Fort and see the fine collection of 16th 17th Century cannons. An old custom has been revived every Wednesday at 11.50 at the Clock Tower the Changing of the sentry takes place, its free and charming with a small band playing and the personell dressed in their traditional Zoave unfforms it is a step back in time.The Barbados Museum is nearby, housed in the old hospital and prison, well worth a visit to see so many historical aspects of Barbados displayed together. George Washington House is on The Garrison, Barbados is the only country he visited outside the USA. It is a charming house beautifully and sensitively restored, the visit opens with an infomative film. For National Trust members entry is free bring your NT card with you for entry and also for use at other properties in Bds.

National Trust also include Andromeda Gardens - fabulous botanical garden planted in the 50,s by Iris Bannochie,Arlington House in Speightstown, and if you are visiting in the winter there is the National Trust series of Open Houses to visit. A reduced fee is paid on production of your NT card.

Do visit the magnificent East Coast, breath the fresh air straight from Africa, walk the beaches, take care if swimming as it is dangerous but there are rock pools to explore and paddle in to cool off. Drive along the East Coast Road now called ( I think Emmy Bourne Hiway)

Guestbook comments from the owner
The Sugar Hill resort is wonderfully placed to enjoy the best that Barbados has to offer. Saint James has a fabulous run of restaurants and quiet secluded west coast beaches. The villa is well appointed with a fine well equipped kitchen. The large terrace provides ample opportunity for al fresco dining and the pool is just a hundred feet or so away. All the bedrooms have direct access to the outside by either private balcony or the terrace. Sugar Hill itself has many nice features. The view from the clubhouse is spectacular and that view is available from the pool, bar and restaurant. A brisk walk around the grounds is a great way to get the day started. Barbados has all you would expect in a caribbean island. Great beaches, diving, golf and sail cruises but there is a unique feel to Barbados that I believe stems from its history and topography.

We have visted many islands and Barbados has the most diverse types of terrain of any place we have been. The east coast looks like the Big Sur while the south reminds me of the Bahamas. We took a zip line adventure throught he trees and had lunch at the east coast Atlantis hotel with the surf crashing right below our window. We toured a historic sugar plantation and stopped by the Mount Gay store for some supplies. We had dinner and drinks at a number of very refined posh establishments in Saint James and also had a great meal in a local Friday night fish fry. The night sky is very clear and I had my first unforgettable look at the Southern Cross. All in all a great vacation and we look forward to returning to Barbados and Sugar Hill many times in the future.

PERFECT PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 10 days over my son's half term in February. My Mother came with us and said it is so rare to be able to say after a holiday that everything was perfect. Having a spacious, beautifully furnished and equipped house helped no end.

The beach facilities are brilliant and the pools clean and well maintained. It was so good that we have already booked to go again, at the same time next year. I have never before returned to the same place, as I believe the world is too big for repeat visits, so it must have been good!

A couple of things to be aware of, when Angie comes in to clean the house, she is there all day, not a quick in and out as we would expect in the UK, that said she is extremely pleasant and does a brilliant job. Also, the restaurant at the Club House serves very good meals but the service is dreadful, it took my Mum 2+ hours to have lunch, so factor in extra time if you do decide to eat there.

Owner's Response: Have sent comments on Spago restaurant to Sugar Hill Operations Manager I am sure she will act on your comments and improve things there.

EXCELLENT FOR FAMILIES!

  • 5 of 5
Villa - good size, very clean and felt like home in no time. 3 beds (2 ensuite) and a 3rd bathroom were an great for our party of two families (4 adults, 2 children & baby). The villa also has a reasonably private outside area including bbq, dining area and seating area for drinks while the children are in bed.

Sugar Hill - beautiful resort with two good pool areas including the fantastic infinity pool overlooking the west coast. Car is a must as its a 5 minute ride up the hill from the coast road and shops in Holetown. Good restaurant on site but menu does not vary between lunch and dinner and it's not open for breakfast. Tennis courts are available if you want to punish yourself in the heat.

Beach Club - access to the Fairmont beach club is a great asset to the villa. Its a 5 minute drive, has lifeguards and a nice bunch of employees to help you out with watersports. Special mention to Ryan who is just a genuine nice local guy.

Owner/Manager - Veronica and Manty were attentive from start to finish. Manty provided a cot and a car seat for the duration of our stay, set us up with a local cook for a 'Bajan' night and negotiated car hire rates on the island prior to our arrival.

Would I go back? - definitely if travelling again with extended friends and family.

AMAZING TIME

  • 5 of 5
I travelled with my family, which included 2 small children. The villa was great, was airy, spacious and well decorated. I was collected from the airport as well as having basic provisions bought prior to me arriving. The grounds on the villa was lovely, the staff pleasant and both pools were clean and well kept. We ate in the restaurant Daphne's a couple of times, again the food was nice and value for money. We experienced 2 minor issues during our stay which the property manager dealt with within the hour of me calling, great service. The housekeeper attended the villa, several times during our stay and provided a good service. I would definitely stay at the villa again if visiting Barbados.

ANOTHER GREAT HOLIDAY.

  • 5 of 5
Another very enjoyable stay at Sugar Hill.
Weather was better than expected for time of year.
Not many visitors about.
The Villa as before, was presented in an excellent condition, and everything worked...great beds.
Unfortunately the central Bar and restaurant was closed, but we were told that a new group were coming in to run both sections in early December.
The 2 swimming pools at Sugar Hill are very clean, and great for swimming.
The deal with Fairmount Hotel works well...great swimming with Turtles !!
Angy who works at the Villa is extremely helpful, and does a great job.

HOLIDAY BLISS AT SUGAR HILL

  • 5 of 5
I have just enjoyed my holiday at Sugar Hill.The villa is beautiful, well furnished and well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing holiday. The grounds of Sugar Hill are well maintained and there are two swimming pools. Angela is the housekeeper for the villa, she is a gem. A car is useful, Holetown , the local town is a short drive away. There is a very well stocked supermarket there and a really good choice of restaurants. The owner of the villa provides a pass to use the beach facilities at the Fairmont Hotel. The facilities there are excellent, good showers and reasonably priced food. Enjoy your holiday.

Owner's Response: We are always delighted when our guests take the time to write their thoughts on our villa, the facilities and Barbados. This is a special place, with something for everyone, relaxing with a rum punch on the beach at the Royal Pavilion Fairmont Hotel, swimming with the turtles, sailing, exploring historic Bridgetown, experiencing the East Coast and the wonderful scenery. Or just doing nothing watching the boats sail by from a very comfortable beach chair. But most of all enjoy the friendly Bajans who will take you to their heart and help make your stay memorable.
