Oh my gosh! We just returned from an 8 day stay at Glitter Bay #109. The whole place is just amazing. We had two couples that stayed at #109. We all 4 have cruised to Barbados a few times and fell in love with the island on our first visit. On our 1st cruise we took a jeep safari with "Island Safari". Our drivers name was Ralph White and he made our experience so much fun. We kept in touch with Ralph over the years and when we have been back we have looked him up. He told us we should come back sometime and stay for longer than a day, that his sister had a place where we could stay. So this year the 4 of us decided we had time off this June and that we were going to make it happen. We contacted Marilil (Ralph's sister) she is also with Barbados Villa Services. She was terrific and helped us make it happen. Boy are we glad we did!!!! This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had. The apartment was very nice and had everything we needed. Our maid Charmain took great care of us. The grounds are beautiful. Duncan and his staff keep the grounds looking so nice. We enjoyed chatting with all the staff. Duncan, Brian & Rocky were always so nice and very helpful. Everyone was so pleasant. The time we were there was what they consider slow time. For us the slow time was just what we needed. We loved the pool. The beach was wonderful. They even had beach chairs and umbrellas for us. They were ready for us every day. We walked the beach at least 2 or 3 times a day. We enjoyed the monkeys. They were right there in our backyard!! We all have a new appreciation for the sea turtle. We were privileged to get to watch at least 7 to 8 Momma turtles come up on the beach to nest. We enjoyed visiting with the people from the Sea Turtle Project when they were on the beach. We even got to see baby turtles that hatched out right there on the Glitter Bay beach. WOW!!! This experience was new for all of us and one we will not soon forget. Do we want to go back? We are counting the days till hopefully we could make it all happen again.
