Trip report July 2011

We had a great trip the first week of July. The weather was hot but the breeze helped tremendously. Rain showers most every day and the clouds would give way to sunshine for at least a couple of hours. Thank you for all the advice given on this board and I've posted some reviews and link to pictures/video on my blog so you can either reminisce or start planning your next trip! :)



American Airlines DFW-BGI route


Maxwell Beach Apts: budget friendly, super clean, right on the beach

The Crane: amazing! We had a one bedroom oceanview and it was phenomenal--we could have stayed longer!


Harrison's Cave: well worth the trip. I was there 10 years ago and the new renovation is great.

Sailing on the Elegance: really recommend this small boat for a sail around the island, attentive staff


Ackee Tree: great rotis

Oisten's: Pat's Place

Atlantis Hotel buffet: bountiful buffet and a wonderful view

Chefette: loved the pineapple juice and rotis

L'azure: great set dinner (app, main, dessert, wine) for USD50 pp

Carib Beach Bar: great for lunch and beautiful beach view


Loved the Best of Barbados store and that there was an emphasis on locally made items. Brought back sugar and a lot of rum!

Wish we had the time to go by St Nicholas Abbey and Earthworks pottery but we wanted a nice relaxing vacation and we sure got one!

Wonderful! Glad you took advantage of American's DFW service. It's already proving very popular with visitors from the southern and western states. Atlantis Hotel & Restaurant is indeed a true gem! Hope you return and visit again soon to see St. Nicholas Abbey! I love the rum they produce there.

Wow! Your photos are amazing - do you use an SLR camera or automatic? I really must buy an SLR - and learn how to use it!

Thanks everyone! Everything is so beautiful in Barbados it's hard not to take a good picture! These pictures were a combination of a Nikon D3100, Canon powershot for on the go pictures and an IPhone 4 for the videos :)
