We stayed with my son a few times and loved the whole place. Their apartment was nice and modern and very clean and nice and comfortable. They had daily maids come and clean for them. Outside was a communal pool which was great with a children's pool as well. A couple of minutes walk and you have your gorgeous beach...

Ideal location on the west coast of Barbados. This recently refurbished apartment was a real home from home. Spacious bedrooms and wonderful sized lounge but the best part for us was the huge balcony overlooking the wonderfully kept grounds. The resort beach is two minutes walk from the apartment - allocated sun beds on beautiful sand and warm sea were...

101 is a very nice ground floor apartment with two patios and direct access to the beach. Very well equipped. Two double bedrooms one with a very small en-suit bathroom and one general bathroom. On check out we were offered a free night and a special gift on our next visit if we left a satisfactory review on trip advisor.

Thank you for your review of GB101. We do correspond with our guests with our check out procedures a couple of days before departure. We made a change to our letter in February 2017 to ensure that we kept within the guidelines of TA. Our apologies if you may have received our outdated departure note in error. In our departure...

Newly renovated property right on the beach. Very high standard and tastefully decorated. Would highly recommend staying here. It's a credit to the owner. Two swimming pools, bar with excellent food, your own sun beds for the duration of your stay. Staff are really helpful and friendly, will definitely be back.

Thank you for your review of GB309 and Glitter Bay.

I visited suite 302 Always Summer at Glitter Bay Barbados with a friend last week. The accommodation was first class, spotlessly clean, very well appointed and perfectly serviced. Glitter Bay has an excellent beach and very pleasant bar area. The staff were very helpful. Without hesitation I would recommend this apartment and very much hope to visit again.
