Each unit is given an assigned spot on the beach and Rocky ensures all your needs are met from fresh towels, to cappuccino to the traditional rum swizzle....

This was my first time in Barbados and the location on the island is perfect. It is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of Bridge Towns package holiday hotels and booze cruises.
