I'm looking back wistfully over photos from our stay here last November, but certainly not through rose-tinted glasses; Silver Point is just a fantastic experience for such a very affordable price.
We got a £500 deal for flights and hotel stay with BA Holidays and everything was perfect. November is the tail-end of the hurricane season and the resort was about half full but the staff were still so friendly and attentive - we asked to be moved to a room with a fridge and we were moved to a huge apartment with beautiful sea view (and huge Smeg fridge!) The resort beach is beautiful (water a little choppy in this part of the island, mind) and the restaurant on the beach does the most delicious food - breakfast in particular is a highlight.
The hotel is a $10 taxi ride away from St Lawrence Gap, where you can dine in Bellini's or Flying Fish where the fish is divine and you can watch turtles floating around in the bay. Oistins on a Friday is close by too and the fish fry is something you have to go to, as every taxi driver will doubtless tell you.
We booked excursions from Bridgetown after travelling there on one of Barbados' infamous buses (crammed in with 20 friendly locals) which you can catch from outside the convenience store that's just round the corner. Snorkelling in the Caribbean was amazing and the island tour is a must, that will pick you up from the hotel.
I love this place so much and we're thinking of going again this year as everything was just brilliant - so relaxing, friendly and idyllic.
