Yes Barbados is relatively safe - just use common sense and take steps to protect your property and personal safety just as you would at home eg use hotel safety deposit boxes, don't leave valuables unattended on the beach etc
Barbados is a very safe island for tourists with crime rates being among the lowest in the Caribbean region, however you still need to exercise the same caution as you would at home by not leaving valuables on display and not walking around unlit roads at night.
You won't be confined to any resort in Barbados as this is not that type of destination. You'll be free to roam the area including the major tourist zones such as Hastings, Worthing, Rockley, St. Lawrence Gap, Maxwell and Oistins.
Hope this helps
