BARBADOS IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLANDS IN THE WEST INDIES AND OFFERS AND EXQUISITE SELECTION OF PLACES TO SLEEP AND EAT.
If you are planning a trip to Barbados I am here to help you find the top two hotels and restaurants on the island.
HANG YOUR HAT IN BARBADOS HERE...
This hotel sits majestically on the north-west shores surrounded by tropical gardens, golden palms, and banana trees and is kept to high standards of luxury accommodations. All suites are elegantly furnished and spacious with sitting rooms that open up to your own private terrace, also included is your own wet bar and living room. Oh and it has air condition too! Cobbler's Cover Hotel is known for its fine dining cuisine of local fish, vegetables and fruit so if you are a foodie this hotel is for you. And if you are an adventurist Cobbler Cove also provides excitement at their private beach where snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing, and water skiing is available.
The entire hotel is situated right on the ocean so everywhere you look you have ocean views. The most beautiful aspect of The Royal Pavilion is their long drive way lined with impressive royal palms - it makes you feel like you entering a palace. The decor of the Pavilion is a tasteful blend of Mediterranean with West Indian accents and you will find it exudes feelings of tranquility and grace. They too are known for their cuisine, and I suggest you sampling their pan-fried lobster medallions - simply heavenly!
EAT YOUR HEART OUT HERE...BARBADOS RESTAURANTS
Located in St. James which is the west coast of the island, this prestigious restaurant is the epitome of elegance, exclusive, and chic. Aside from the food making it the most a sought after restaurant in Barbados is also the location....location really is everything. A few of their highlights include Bellini and cocktail bar, caviar and cigar bar, and their oceanfront al fresco dining deck which all make this establishment a superb choice if you feel like treating yourself.
**make reservations early...like before your trip begins
I wanted to include something affordable and quick for those folks who travel with their kids or need a quick meal. Chefette restaurants are the leading fast food chain in Barbados where the food is freshly prepared and is of good value. Menus items will include broasted chicken, burgers, sandwiches, rotis and milk shakes. A roti is a stovetop-baked unleavened bread wrapped around a curried meal of meat, fish, or chicken and potato.
