We have been fortunate to have stayed in some wonderful places throughout the world and The Pearl ranks amongst the best. The photos almost don't do it justice. The apartment is beautifully decorated and carefully maintained. The housekeeper, Tammy, is excellent.
During our stay there were few others at Sandy Cove so we enjoyed the pool and beach to ourselves most days. We loved the restaurant scene in Barbados. The Cliff is definitely an experience (and there's a reason they don't advertise the prices!) but other dining recommendations would be Lone Star, Cin Cin, Daphne's.
We found it useful having a car to go to the supermarket and shops at Lime Grove and Chattel Village. The island is definitely worth exploring - Round Hill at Bathsheba is a good place to stop for lunch and enjoy the views.
My husband and son did a wonderful fishing trip with Geoffrey Tryhane of Speartime Charters.
