Special Needs Barbados Accommodation Guide

Special Needs Barbados Accommodation Guide

As the premier vacation destination of the Caribbean, Barbadian hoteliers and support staff are friendly, customer service oriented and increasingly equipped to support clients with special needs.

North, South, East or West?

While the north and east coasts of Barbados boast incredible natural beauty, there is not much to do and offers few amenities suited to the Special Needs Traveler. If traveling with a friend, a car rental would facilitate your stay as taxi availability could be limited.

The south and west coasts of Barbados provide maximum utility and amenities to the Special Needs Traveler. Sidewalks are better maintained and there are a variety of hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues, and services to meet your needs.

Consider the trendy Holetown or popular St. Lawrence Gap for the best combination of comfort and accessibility.
