Help in Choosing a Fantastic Hotel

My bf and I have never been to Barbados and are looking to go for 5 or 6 days in November. We aren't super fussy but I would like a place that is romantic but reasonably priced. We will want to party on some nights so were thinking the Gap is best - or at least someplace close to Oistins. Also, want to be walking distance to a great beach. Any recommendations on a great place to check out? Also, any recommendations on a site to book through that would have some good specials? Thanks!

You may want to consider renting a condo at St. Lawrence Beach Condos -- brand new & gorgeous -- right as you enter the Gap so you'd be where all of the action is. I've got a write up and pictures from our recent visit in my tips. www.barbadostips.com Go to the area that says "Condos". You can easily walk to St. Lawrence Bay & Sandy Beach for some gorgeous beaches.

Your requirements are similar to mine. After much research we booked Bougainvillea Beach Resort for our November vacation.

Can't wait to go

You may also want to examine Southern Palms. It's in the Gap, on the beach, is quite lovely, and short cab ride to Oistin. A romantic boutique hotel at a higher price point is Little Arches -- which is walking distance to Oistin, but a bit farther form the Gap. However, you should be able to take an inexpensive cab ride back and forth in the evening.

Whatever your choices, enjoy your stay in Bim!
