I've stayed at Golden Acre two times. The first time in January of 2016 and have just returned in November 2016 for my second time.
I love the location of the property. It's a very short walk to Alleynes beach which has some of the best snorkelling and swimming on the island. There are two beach bars on Alleynes beach to grab a bite at. It's a small, private gated community, and there are only 8 other units so we had the pool to ourselves for our entire stay.
Golden Acre is a fantastic spot and will be returning again in the future.

45 years ago I went to Barbados and always wanted to return to see if it was as great as I remembered. It was everything I remembered and more.
To me Barbados is the friendliest and safest of all the islands.
Golden Acres is in an excellent location. Walking distance to the beach and the local bus, very easy to get around. Even though Golden Acres is equipped with everything to make your own meals, we choose to go out every night to a different place to eat.
If you're looking for great modern up to date accommodations with all the comforts of home, Golden Acres is it. 3 bedrooms with very comfy beds, giant screen TV (also with Netflix), air conditioning, beautiful pool surrounded with tables and chairs, walking distance to the water, nice little bar on the beach that we ate lunch at every day. Chairs and umbrellas were also available to rent at the beach.
We checked the weather before leaving and it showed rain every day. Even though we went in what they call off season, it averaged about 30 degrees every day and it only rained heavy one morning. This didn't hinder us at all because even in the rain it was still warm out.
Overall a wonderful holiday.
Just got back from this beautiful property, spent a week there on vacation with 4 others. New fresh unit, great location so much going for this place. If you like something different besides a resort stay here, locals around here are so friendly Sonia's variety store just down the street is a fun place to go get you Banks Beers and chat with the locals and her son has chairs down on the beach to rent by the day.
Be adventurous and take the bus into hole town and have fun at some of the local bars and restaurants we went to a number of them and liked them all. Can't forget the AWSOME beach that's just a short stroll from the unit ( just a warning once you set your feet into that beautiful sand you never want to leave) Ju Ju's beach bar has food and cold drinks and you never have to leave the sand.
I will be going back for sure and recommend it to those travelling to Barbados
Brand new property, clean, comfortable and completely furnished. Beautifully landscaped. Pool on property and gorgeous beach within walking distance (5-10 min). Spent 10 days here and did not want to come home. Will return.
