This was a real find thanks to the wonders of the internet and TripAdvisor!! We wanted good quality not necessarily luxurious self catering accommodation for a family holiday in Barbados and Shades does not disappoint. It thoroughly exceeded all our expectations in every way. We booked apartment 7 the two bedroom penthouse villa and it was totally perfect for us...

Location of this place could not be better, it is off in the middle of a neighborhood within minutes of walking distance to some of the best restaurants and incredible calm beaches. We stayed in Apartment 6 and it was extremely clean and included everything needed. Awesome bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. The bed was extremely comfortable and the whole apartment...

We stayed in one of the 2-bed room apartments (ground floor) with our two children (6 and 8). The whole apartment was spacious and clean. The manager Jaqui was very friendly and helpful. She helped us arrange pick up from the airport and drove us to the grocery store the first day. She gave us great advice on things to...

I visited Shades on a friends recommendation and boy what a recommendation. I travelled there with my parents and from the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. Shades is a real jewell in the Paynes Bay crown, it is in a very unique position and while it doesn't sit 'on the beach' it doesn't need to, it literally...

Everything was taken care of, from the moment we landed and being collected from the airport, to having a bed waiting for us at the beach every day. All of this and half the cost of all the hotels in and around the area. We stayed in the penthouse and it was much better than pictures show. Jacqui took care...

If you are tired of the 'all inclusive' bubble Shades is for you. The accomodation is excellent and the location perfect. The walk to the beach in the morning was a pleasure with all the neighbours saying hello. Without doubt the experience is made by Jacqui's enthusiasm and willingness to help ensure that the guests get what they want from...
