Barbados Hotel Guide
Barbados hotels can be pricey in the west side of Speightstown and Holetown, but they will place you in the vicinity of some of the must-do attractions (like St. Nicholas Abbey). For the best deals on the island's south coast, some suggest you stay in the city of Bridgetown. However, many travelers also say the nearby parish of Christ Church has well-run small resorts with serene views for a fraction of the price. For quieter lodging, try the family-run inns on Barbados' more secluded east coast.
- There are very few all-inclusive resorts, making Barbados a more interesting, authentic (and markedly more expensive) Caribbean vacation. An even more decadent alternative for visiting families is renting a villa." -- Concierge.com
- Tourist facilities are concentrated on the west coast in St. James and St. Peter parishes (appropriately dubbed the Platinum Coast) and on the south coast in Christ Church Parish. Traveling along the west coast to historic Holetown … and continuing to the northern city of Speightstown, you can find posh beachfront resorts, luxurious private villas, and fine restaurants enveloped by lush gardens and tropical foliage." -- Fodor's
- The rugged East Coast is dotted with homey, family-run inns, while the south coast is known for affordable apartments (although rare, we have identified a few quality properties that provide rooms for under $150 per night). Top-notch villas and condos exist throughout island and are often the best choice for large groups and families spending more than a week in paradise." -- Sherman's Travel
