The condos are new, well equipped and across the street from a quiet beach. The location is between Holetown and Speightstown but not very convenient to anything within walking distance. If you do walk, you have to be very careful because the road is narrow, the traffic is fast and there are not always sidewalks. It is quite easy to get around by bus, however and they run often and only cost $1.00 each way (US) We had a rental car but I preferred to take the bus bc I didn't like driving on the narrow roads.
We stayed in Apt. 1 on the first floor from which you could walk right out to the pool. We could not see the ocean but I think the 3rd floor apartments probably had a very nice view. Ours had a TV which got Miami stations and the internet was very good. I was not bothered by the traffic at all.
We also took taxis and found the people of Barbados to be very friendly and helpful. Fun things we did included the Jolly Roger Cruise where we snorkeled and saw some turtles, Harrison Caves and Aerial Trek zip lining. Restaurants we enjoyed were Just Grillin, Lone Star, Surfside, Caribas, and Spago at Settler's Beach. We also found a fun local bar called the Golden Anchor.
If you're traveling with a family or group and don't want to pay hotel prices, these would be a very good option. It felt very safe and there was always a security guard on duty at night.
