Very last minute, good safe location?

Having never been to Barbados before, I have the opportunity to go next week (!) from Sunday 17th to Friday 22nd March 2013.

Can anyone with experience recommend a good website, or hotel/apartment that is in a good location, near or on a beach, and a safe location?

Many thanks, in advance!

Might help if you gave a budget, whether you want B&B, DB&B, All Inclusive.

Thanks for asking those questions, Dunnedg

Budget is up to $1000 for the four nights - not expecting All Inclusive for that rate, especially as I care more about location and cleanliness etc.

Happy with B& B.

Really grateful for any suggestions/recommendations at this late stage!

Take a look at Expedia, they always have good last minute packages. I just looked and they have the Sunswept Hotel for your dates plus flights at around £850 per person. Sunswept is on the gorgeous west coast and right in the heart of Holetown and set on the beach. That is good value for this time of year!

Also you could take a look at this website www.relaxingretreats.co.uk. This is a very reputable family company and there are a few good value condos on here such as the Palm Beach Condos. Not sure if there will be availability though as its high season. It is worth calling Irene at relaxing retreats in the UK to find out.

Try Butterfly Beach Hotel - I just searched on their website and they have availability for you dates.

Price quoted was 149USD per night for a superior ocean front studio - it's saying 5 night minimum stay but it's worth asking I think.

Look at the website of Kenwood Travel for hotel only options - for you dates it gave several options. Some are above your budget but it came up with the Casuarina total £707 and that is all inclusive so might be worth considering?

Oh yes, Butterfly Beach is also a good choice especially if you are travelling solo ... they have good rates if there is availability.

Nice hotel with a lovely beach and fairly close to Oistins and St.Lawrence Gap.

Yep Coral Mist is a good choice too as are Babiface's suggestions.

Coral Mist on Expedia is £622.85 for your dates so try the hotel direct and get the rate Verderose mentioned!
