Barbados apartment hotels are typically smaller properties with the feel and support systems of a hotel and the independence and convenience of self-catering.
Rooms are self-contained, with stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, ironing board, etc. However, guests still have access to all the property’s amenities, such as the swimming pool, restaurant, security, Reception area, beach facilities, bar, and activities personnel.
It’s the best of both worlds. You can use the hotel facilities when you wish – then retreat to your room and enjoy all of your creative comforts. Imagine cooking your favorite meals and dining under the stars on your patio with your family and friends in the privacy of a self-catering apartment.
The majority of apartment hotels also come with air conditioning, ceiling fans, cable television, and direct dial telephone, safe.
Several of the properties are part of an eight-year-old group called the Intimate Hotels of Barbados, offering accommodation for visitors who wish to “get away from every day – including Royalty and the Hollywood elite.”
Barbados Apartment hotels in the Intimate group offer low prices and on-line booking for member properties. Summer rates can be as low as US$59 a night.
The south coast of Barbados has a high number of apartment hotels available to rent for locals and visitors.
If you opt for a one-bedroom apartment, you get a lounge and dining area as well as a separate bedroom. Some apartment hotels even offer two-bedroom and three-bedroom units for larger groups and families.
Apartment Hotels in Barbados often bask in the glow of the feedback from their visitors.
This year one couple, on their return home, wrote: “A truly memorable holiday in the most spectacular location. My sister and I have been privileged to share a beautiful week, watching the sunset from the bottom of the garden – we felt like we were in paradise”
It’s these kinds of comments Barbados apartment hotels have grown accustomed to over the years.
