Most disappointing - apartment 212 is very tired and in need of modernisation - poor showers - generally shabby - we left after one night and moved in to a 5 star hotel up the road. We were told it was a fabulous modernised apartment but unfortunately it was definitively not.

I visited suite 302 Always Summer at Glitter Bay Barbados with a friend last week. The accommodation was first class, spotlessly clean, very well appointed and perfectly serviced. Glitter Bay has an excellent beach and very pleasant bar area. The staff were very helpful. Without hesitation I would recommend this apartment and very much hope to visit again.

We had the opportunity to spend 19 days at Glitter Bay! The gated community is spectacular with lush gardens, both an adult and kiddies pool, and the best beach on the island.
