Barbados Apartments - A Great Hotel Option For Families And Couples
By Earlyn Shuffler
Barbados Apartments are a great choice for families or couples who enjoy the option of self-catering. There are lovely Barbados apartment hotels that are owned and managed by local families. The services in these hotels tend to be more personalized and by the end of your visit you begin to feel like you are part of the family. You will find these Barbados apartment hotels primarily on the south coast of the island.
Barbados offers visitors a mix of old world charm and modern infrastructure; while you are reminded that friendly service can accompany excellent cuisine at an affordable price. At the same time if your taste is for luxury you will find it readily available.
Visitors can feel welcome and interact with locals on the beach, in the shopping areas or while exploring the island. There are still deserted beaches, beautiful coral reefs where you can snorkel or scuba dive, the world famous Harrison's Caves with its 300 ft cavern and the amazing Atlantis Submarine where you can take a ride to 150 ft under the blue Caribbean Sea.
If you're looking for a holiday destination where you will be able to relax, kick back and contemplate the finer points of life in style, while enjoying beautiful sunshine, why not choose Barbados. Take the opportunity to escape the normal hustle and bustle of everyday life for a few weeks on a Caribbean island where life slows to a pace that you can really enjoy nature, like a sun-set that you will not soon forget. Then have dinner outdoors at one of the many great restaurants on the south coast and watch the moon come over the trees and cast a shimmering glow on the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea.
In Barbados the local people are friendly and welcoming towards overseas visitors because their island still depends primarily on tourism but they have also been able to remain fairly unspoiled. They are proud of their island and like to share what they appreciate with visitors. The will want to tell you about the lovely beaches and the exciting East coast, where the Atlantic Ocean comes crashing on to the wide open beaches. You will hear about the many churches, like St. John Parish Church, which is hundreds of years old. They will tell you about the many night spots where you can relax and enjoy local Jazz and Socca music. If you want to try some local food they will tell you where to get some steam flying fish and Coo-Coo.
Experience A Family Friendly Self-catering Barbados Apartment
There is a mixture of hotel resorts, All-inclusive hotels and condominium rental accommodation, but the majority of Barbados hotels are small apartment hotels built along the sea shore, which offer beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea. Yellow Bird Hotel is a good example of this type of Barbados Apartment Hotel. It sits on a little elevation overlooking the scenic St. Lawrence Bay on the south coast of Barbados. As the owners say "our hotel is one of the most centrally located! You are within walking distance to the exciting St. Lawrence Gap, where there is an array of restaurants and night time entertainment and only a few miles to the city of Bridgetown, where shopping is fun".
Despite the pace of life being incredibly laid back there are many adventures to be had. On your Barbados vacation you can plan various Tours to enjoy a host of activities. You can stroll on beautiful white sand Barbados beaches, enjoy great snorkelling and Scuba Diving, play a round of golf on one of several World Class Golf Courses, tour the island and take in the spectacular East coast or spend a day deep-sea Fishing.
There are very few high-rise hotels spoiling the skyline and I hope that is maintained. If you want to experience the ultimate tropical escape you can book a Barbados apartment at Yellow Bird Hotel, where you and your family can enjoy the convenience of an Ocean-view resort with the option of self-catering.
