You can't get much better than Sandy Lane!
My last visit to Barbados was back in 2000, with my then new beau! 10 years on I am returning to the island (without my beau who has since been promoted to husband and a daddy to our baby girl). I feel like an excited child on Christmas Eve, full of great expectations and of course a little anticipation; what will the island bring, what will have changed, and of course a tinge of trepidation travelling without my lovely family. Emotions aside and bags packed only time will tell.
On arrival all seems the same, although my driver is very excited about some new roundabouts! The island has undergone development since my last visit both on the south and west coast and some work continues, however it's as charming as I remember. Staying at Sandy Lane feels very indulgent; I can't believe that in my 12 years in travel I have never visited before! I arrive with great expectations and these are well and truly met; the hotel is impeccable and so are its staff - good service comes naturally here. I would not hesitate to recommend a holiday here whether you are looking for a romantic break or a family holiday - whatever your needs they are catered for.
If luxury is your middle name then travelling in Club World or FIRST is a must! Enjoying a glass of champagne to welcome you onboard has to be a good start and the ultimate flat bed in which to sleep the effects off afterwards is certainly an added benefit.
