Everything we imagined, more than we hoped for...

Having traveled to other Caribbean islands but never to Barbados we did our research before booking. Upon arrival at Coral Cove Apartments we immediately realized we had chosen wisely. The pure feelings of relaxation and welcoming struck us as we entered this apartment. The unit is tastefully furnished and provides an easy island style. It is truly a home away from home. We wanted for nothing during our stay. The view from the balcony is outstanding. The beach that this property sits on is the nicest stretch of beach on Paynes Bay if not the entire island (we know, we toured the island by car). This beach is perfect for swimming, provides a small reef for snorkeling and turtles are a common sight in the water. Each morning there are lounge chairs and umbrellas perfectly aligned on the beach waiting for you. It could not be easier. You spend as much time on the beach as you want with all the comforts of home directly behind you. The staff at this property could not be nicer or more helpful with any questions or concerns you may have. Dina, our house keeper, is a pure joy and kept things clean and tidy. She is a true indication of the warmth of the local people. Additional positives of this property is it's location to the local bus routes and local eating and drinking establishments. We did not rent a car for our stay and used the local buses to travel to Holetown, Speightstown and Bridgetown. The buses are economical and efficient. There is a local food grill (take away) across the street from this property on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Do not miss it. The food is fresh, delicious and affordable. Also across the street is Mr. Vic's, do not miss! His restaurant and bar are local and provide good food and great company. You will not meet a nicer man than Vic. Our vacation was outstanding because of this property and the introduction it provided us to Barbados and her beautiful people. Take advantage of this home and meet Barbados on her terms, you will be greatly rewarded! You will feel safe, secure, relaxed, welcomed, refreshed and most importantly, right at home. Our sincere thanks and appreciation to all at Coral Cove Apartments. I wish all who travel here a similar experience.
