Barbados offers a storehouse of diversity. The coastline comprises breath-taking sandy beaches lapped by calm turquoise waters on the west, and expanses of wild surf on the Atlantic east coast. Not just a tropical beach holiday destination, there are plenty of sightseeing attractions, including colonial-style plantation houses and villages dotted with brightly painted houses. Depending on what you’re looking for as your base for discovering Barbados, there is a hotel here to suit everyone. Having recently travelled to Barbados, Caribbean Specialist Katie Hill shares her views of some of our favourite hotels...Tamarind“Occupying an excellent beachside location on the west coast, Tamarind is a stylish and modern hotel which is popular with young couples. The adults-only pool and spa area is secluded and relaxing, whilst the fantastic kids' club offers lots of different activities including swimming with turtles.”Prices from £1430 per person for 7 nightsClick to view more information about TamarindThe House“The House is an adults-only hotel with an outstanding level of service that persistently draws in repeat clients. The grand entrance greets you as you drive along the torch-lit decking for an ambient introduction. Even the most basic room category offers a stunning setting for champagne breakfasts.”Prices from £2110 per person for 7 nightsClick to view more information about The HouseCoral Reef Club“There is an elegant, yet relatively relaxed, old-world colonial feel to Coral Reef Club.
