This is one of those apartments within a resort where the reality is actually even better than what is promised. The unit is beautifully appointed with lots of attention to detail and full of little extras such as Dvd's (for adults and kids), loads of games, tennis rackets (and balls!), even a cooler to take to the beach. The layout - with the reception rooms in the centre - means the bedrooms (plus separate bathroom for each, both well sized) feel like they are in separate wings, so there is lots of privacy, even though you are close. We have two children and it was perfect for them, although we would have enjoyed it just as much as a couple. The resort is fabulous, two lovely pools plus Sassafras restaurant which serves great food. Coral Sands is the perfect base to explore Barbados, especially the west coast. Our entire experience from start to finish was a real pleasure and I really cannot recommend this place enough. The owner is a delight and really helpful.
Barbados is a wonderful island with so much to offer compared to it's smaller neighbours. The sea is truly turquoise and the sand white. Try the local rum punch, coconut water fresh from the coconut (sold alongside the road), flying fish and any locally caught fresh fish, its delicious.
There are boat trips to snorkle and swim with turtles or dive on wrecks; surfing on the east coast or calm caribbean waters on the south/west coasts.
Travel to the south coast and lunch or dine at Champers or travel north to the Fishpot and host Manny will take great care of you.
All in all, the best place ever for a holiday!
