My wife and I have got 2 free return flights to be used on Virgin. We are quite limited when we take leave and one of our options is Barbados Easter 2015 for 2 weeks.
I've had a quick look and it seems quite expensive so we thought we would have a week in a guest-house and try to see a bit of the island/culture and then a week in a more luxury all-inclusive hotel (budget aboout £1000-£1200 per person (3000 BD) ideally with decent snorkelling nearby. Does this sound reasonable?
My initial investigations suggested:
- quite limited AI hotels but my budget is reasonable? Any suggestions for either nice guest-houses or more luxurious AI hotels would be appreciated
- cost of eating out/drinks is quite high (more expensive that UK/US), is that correct?
- do we have any other options? Would a cruise from Barbados be an option...?
We are in our mid 20s/early 30s, well travelled and pretty active, would like to snorkel, experience a bit of local culture, relax by pool/beach and do a bit of hiking/other activities. I presume Barbados is good for all of those?
