“Good, clean & reasonable”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Palm Paradise. Just off the main road up the hill, meant a 10 minute walk to get to the beach and of course the buses. Pat arranged our taxis for us at a good rate. Gillie cooked a very good breakfast, nothing was ever too much for them. Even sorting out a problem of the lost mobile. Only one thing that bugged us was the hand written notices everywhere. Apart from that would definitely go back.

Room Tip: not the green room

This hotel is good for those on a budget, especially with Barbados being so expensive. Fantastic welcome from the owner Pat and her colleague Gillie.
Very clean spacious room and free WiFi throughout the guest house. Only 3 little niggles:
Have to pay extra for Air Con
Shower head needed descaling
Mattress had gone on my side, but Hubby had a fab sleep!!

Hi Ruth thanks for public-ally letting me know about the bed it would have been nice for you to have mentioned your niggles personally to me when we were chatting together. However I do really appreciate it as we had had a man in the Apartment for 8 months on a long term let and he was a big Guy, heavy in weight prior to your arrival and yes you were right the bed had gone on 1 side but the maids not laying on it had not realised. Thanks it made me check them all.
Regards the Air Con, yes like many places charge extra for the air con as why should someone who does not like it have to pay the same price as someone who uses it and may I remind you you never paid for it. As you so rightly implied our prices are very reasonable and do not allow for Free Air Con.
In good faith unbeknown to you until you arrived I upgraded you Free of charge from the Studio Apartment which you booked and paid for, to the One Bedroom Apartment costing £10 per night more as I knew you were bringing your Son of 19/20 years and it meant he would have been sharing the same room as you and your Husband, where as it mean't having the larger apartment he had a separate room to sleep in. It is nice to know people do read these reviews as the lady who stayed in the Blue room after you left pointed out the bed in that room was more comfortable than the one they had at home.
The Shower head was also a oversight by the maids and this has been pointed out to them.
Yes we provide Free Internet 24/7 in all parts of the Guest House and the grounds which your Son was delighted with as he was hardly able to use it on the Cruise as it was so very expensive.
So all in all as you said when you left you'd be back when on your next Cruise and so hope next time you will spend more than 1 night with us.

I really liked the Palm Paradise. The owners and her staff were great.The food was good and reasonably priced. Our highlight was when Pat the owner arranged and took us to Oistin's for their Friday nite BBQ.

We stayed in the suite for much less than we would have paid for a hotel room elsewhere. Pat also arranged our transportation from the airport and to our Windstar cruise ship when we left. Our stay was efficient and problem free... which is amazing when in the Islands.

Room Tip: Accept Pat's offer to arrange transportation. Also the meals are good and reasonable.

The location is lovely. Very peaceful and a short walk to the beach. The guest house is comfortable and spotless and the food is delicious!!! Pat & Gilly certainly know how to look after their guests. Friendly, fun & very helpful. The garden is beautiful and it was lovely having our meals out there. Would certainly go back!!!!!

Room Tip: all the rooms are clean and comfortable, we especially liked the Paradise room with the balcony.

We stayed here after coming from the East coast and it was good to see both sides of the Island.
The guest house is well located for the beach at Paynes Bay and to also go into Holetown for shops and restaurants.
The rooms are clean and bathrooms large.It was quiet and we slept well.There is a lovley garden to relax in and Pat is a very helpful host.She arranged car hire before our holiday.
One small point -it would have been good to have had extra towels for the beach as having our own is heavy in the luggage!!Would go back :)

Room Tip: I don't know any other rooms

So sorry about this. we do not hand out towels for use at the pool but if people ask we do or they can hire a towel for use at the beach B$10 to cover laundry and wear and tear. Just like many of the hotels.
We do not allow towels from the rooms to be used for the Pool or the Beach. I am so pleased you mentioned this so others know to ask. as now I realise this has never been amended on our website,
Thanks Pat and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

We went there last October. Pat and Gilly were amazing hosts, very friendly and ensured that our stay was unforgettable. They certainly know the island very well and their recommendations for restaurants and attractions were top notch. Gilly got a fantastic sense of humor and Pat certainly know how to be a great host . We had a great time on the boat trip and swimming with the turtles and thank you to them for making it a great day out with full of fun and laughter. We would certainly stay there again and recommend their venue to friends and family .

We have stayed there the past two seasons...ideally situated in a quiet neighborhood above Paynes Bay on the west coast. Owner Pat and Gilly are wonderful hosts, very friendly and accommodating. The house is immaculate and the grounds lovely. Good food and great value, you won't be disappointed! Richard W.
