Can you help please


i am looking to book accommodation for our stay in august this year, and was wondering if someone could help please. i was looking at the coral mist hotel, but cannot get my bearings as to how far this is from the centre of bridgetown.

as we are in our late 50's we are not interested in swimming etc, but do enjoy relaxing on the beach.

we will not be hiring a car, so was wondering how easy it is to get around from the coral mist. if this is too far out of the way are there suggestions for places to stay i n the centre of bridgetown???

what would you suggest doing....

thanks in advance.

There really isn't any reason to stay in Bridgetown. This is our capital city and like many is mostly a business area.. Shops, banks, etc. Coral Mist is situated in a very good area and along the main south coast bus route, so if you do want to venture into Bridgetown, even stopping at the Garrison Savannah, going to the Barbados Museum, etc etc.. you are in a great spot.

Just to add, it'll take you about 15 minutes by bus to get from the Coral Mist into Bridgetown. The Coral Mist has an excellent location, with fantastic transportation options, on a great beach with several restaurants and bars within close walking distance.

Bridgetown isn't London or New York... there's nothing to do in Bridgetown nor or there any hotels (as yet) in the city centre. The closest hotels to Bridgetown would be Island Inn, Grand Barbados and Hilton Barbados.

Bottom line, stick to Coral Mist.

You really don't want to stay in Bridgetown!!!

Coral Mist is great for getting arround with buses unning along the south coast road right outside. You can walk to a wide range of restaurants and bars, including the Gap which is a popular area. Quayside centr also has a number of dining options.

I love this location and have stayed there 7 times (once at Blue Orchids the sister hotel next door). If you have any questons feel free to message me.
