We are a British couple, David and Lorna, and we have been coming to Barbados every year for the past nine years. We bought two weeks in our apartment in Palmetto, Crane, in 2004 and, a few years later, we bought a week in Cliffs Cott. Two years ago we bought our apartment in the Lantana development on the West Coast. We love Barbados for its relaxed feel, beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants and glorious weather.
