Barbados hotels & accommodation options
The variety of Barbados hotels and accommodation available include luxury hotels and villas, golf resorts, villas and apartments, inns and guest houses.
Sophisticated Barbados, which has earned a reputation for its west coast luxury elegant hotels and villas favoured by celebrities and VIPs, also offers numerous hotels in other parishes that are not going to break the bank. In the main, Barbados hotels, resorts and villas on the chic west coast and the St James area tend to be exclusive so stay in this area if you like luxury, sophistication and a choice of top-notch restaurants. There are a few less expensive options though – beach apartments in Paynes Bay and guest house accommodation in Fitts Village.
For budget accommodation and lively nightlife, stay in the St Lawrence Gap area on the south coast. The south coast is good for small family run hotels, while in the north (Maynards, Shermans, Heywoods, Mullins areas) there are fewer hotels. You will find guest houses and apartments in the Dover, Maxwell, Rockley and Worthing areas. Further south – and wild in sea and wind rather than in nightlife – there is the Silver Sands area, favoured by windsurfing and kitesurfing enthusiasts. There is limited accommodation on the wild east coast of Barbados, where you can get away from the bustling south and west coasts. There is just one large resort with spacious luxury apartments, plus a small hotel and a guesthouse.
Each Caribbean destination has its own dedicated Hotels page so go to the main Caribbean Hotels, Accommodation, Villas section and click on the Country by Country images to check each destination out. In addition to the Caribbean hotel reviews written by travel writers who have personally experienced staying in the accommodation, you will also find specially featured hotels we would particularly like to bring to your attention: you can discover them via this link to Caribbean hotel reviews & featured hotels.
