This is our second visit to Shades and we are so glad we came back. We were in a different apartment (number 1 on the ground floor of the two-story block) and it was superb. Having a living room, bedroom and kitchen area is very convenient and we spent most of our 9 days on site. The apartment has pretty...

Visiting Barbados for the first time with a couple of friends that visit annually, we were all impressed with our choice of location. We have booked to go back next year. Just a short walk from Paynes Beach and the local bus stop. The apartment had everything needed for self catering, albeit that we only ate breakfast "at home". The...

A very high standard of accommodation. Apartments very maintained and Jacqui welcomed us with a delicious rum punch cocktail which set the tone for our whole break. Pool area was...

I booked the holiday on the Friday and flew out the Sunday to celebrate my 50th birthday waking up to sunshine and palm trees. It was the BEST decision I made going to Shades of Barbados. From the moment I arrived it felt like I had known the Manager all my life, she was SO welcoming and friendly. I also...

We stayed in a ground floor apartment for 5 nights and loved it here from the moment we arrived. The apartment was beautifully furnished with a modern look and spotlessly clean, everything looked brand new with plenty of space in the living room/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom and a great shower. The air con worked well (and thank goodness, as it...

I had a fantastic time staying at Shades in March 2015. Great weather and I loved the biggest decisions of my day being beach or pool, and when to have my first drink. I stayed in Apt 6 which was very spacious and had everything I needed (incl AC & wifi). I had breakfast on the patio every morning and...

We stayed at Shades for 5 nights prior to a two week Caribbean cruise. The manager, Jacqui, is an absolute star for whom nothing was too much trouble. She arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, organised the provision of a hire car at an excellent rate and allowed us to return for a few hours at...

Stayed at Shades for a week, enjoyed every minute and hope to return later in the year. Jacqui met us on arrival and what a lovely lady she is, nothing too much trouble and full of local advice.
