Ultimate Vacation - Royal Villa 10
Submitted: July 19, 2010
Stayed: March 2010
Royal Villa 10 was more than we expected. This was our first visit back to Barbados in 20 years, now with our kids (16,14,13,12) and my mother who is 81. We arrived to a warm welcome from Ms. Harriet and departed with lasting memories and hugs with the thought that we couldn't have chosen a more inviting location.
The villa was maticulously maintained and decorated right out of a magazine with ample space for everyone. The pool was a major asset and perfect for us all to relax at different times of the day. The unbeleivable view was spectacular and it ended the day with amazing sunsets over the water. The peace and tranquility of this location was irreplacable.
The villa was perfect for families and would be a wonderful place in the future when the kids are older for us or with friends.
The buggy allowed us to move around the property with ease. The clubhouse was a delightful place to visit in the late afternoon for cocktails. Looking over the golf course, you can also see the ocean. Nearby, was the quaint rum shack for happy hour. The fitness facility was state of the art and was set in a tranquill, well ventilated, clean facilty. Much enjoyed.
We used the private beach (Mullins) on a regular basis. The staff was accomodating and friendly, as well as the food and drinks were great. The area was easy to swim/wade in with very little coral and also child friendly. We strolled down the beach to Gibbs beach which was a very peaceful and relaxing setting. Our early morning walks were on other west coast beaches that we found exquisite and charming.
The convenience of Holetown (5 minutes away) made it easy to pick up groceries, wine, etc. The Weston and Paynes bay fish markets were close by for fresh fish daily (arrive by 8am). Returning home, to find a well equiped kitchen in a refreshing open concept space. It made it easy to gourmet cook and enjoy the family at the same time.
Our 10 days were wonderful and we have more to uncover on our next visit. The elegant accomodation, the charming restaurants, the amazing golf course, the prestigious beaches, and the simplicity of the country side makes this location outstanding. There is something for everyone.
Royal Villa #10, "reflects the interplay between oceanviews and scenic landscape". We can not wait to return and would reccomend it to family, friends and colleagues.
