We stayed in lanata 24 for two weeks in November and had a fantastic time. The apartment easily accommodated 5 of us with plenty of space. The beds were very comfortable so slept very well. Excellent facilities including fridge freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, Tv, Internet. Very well decorated and super clean. The cleaner was lovely.
The apartment boasted a superb view of the sea, which was lovely to wake up to and to watch the sun set. We were also able to see wild monkeys climbing trees in the small local school adjacent.
Access to two good sized pools, both very quiet and plenty of sunbeds. Again very clean.
There's a few local food shacks and rum shacks but more options in the neighbouring towns, (not far at all)
Overall a very peaceful and relaxing stay.
Location: the apartment is between holetown and speightstown in Weston (St James). A few minutes walk to the beach with some of the best snorlking opportunities on the island. Hiring a car to venture around the island is recommended but equally public transport is extremely accessible and very cheap. You can venture from almost north to south on a bus for $3.50 (about £1.30). You can flag buses down pretty much anywhere.
Carlisle Bay great for seeing and swimming with turtles without booking a trip.
Good time luxury cruiser, a little more of an expensive day out on a catamaran, but a special treat.
Recommended restaurants.. Fish pot, round house, champers, chris's place, da outback, the beach house, and oistins fish fry on a Friday night.
Would love to stay again!
We’ve just returned from 2 fantastic weeks at Lantana 24 as a group of 5. The apartment is really spacious with a large balcony which we enjoyed for evening meals together. We found it really useful that the apartment provided both bath and shower towels and also a washing machine which was great for a mid-holiday essentials wash! The apartment was also cleaned half way through our stay.
The location is excellent - on the West Coast half way between Speitstown and Holetown, and only a 2 minute walk to the nearest beach. It’s a short bus ride to some excellent restaurants and only a 5 minute walk to John Moores rum shack which we highly recommend! With so many fab restaurants to sample in Barbados it would really be a shame to go anything other than self-catering.
We hired a car for one of the weeks to explore the rest of the island, but spent the other week getting around by buses and a couple of taxis. The buses were easy to use and only 3.50 Barbados dollars to wherever you wanted to go (less than £1.50!), and the locals are all extremely helpful with directions and often told us which buses to get etc.
Would highly recommend both Barbados and Lantana 24!
Had a brilliant time staying at Lantana 24 , the accommodation was excellent and very clean. It had all the facilities and amenities that you would need. There is a lovely balcony to eat and relax and there is a quiet pool with plenty of sun beds to soak up the sunshine. The sandy beach is just a short stroll away and there is bars and restaurants nearby , however there is a regular bus service up and down the coast lots of excellent restaurants. We found the accommodation very safe and would definitely recommend it for a relaxing holiday however plenty of places to visit and activities .
Great neighbourhood, feels friendly and safe with buses at the end of the street to holetown for resturant s and shops a short ride away and speighstown in the opposite direction with an historical part of the island and buses to anywhere on the island. This spacious apartment overlooks the pool in a gated garden that is cared for by the daily gardener and pool man. Lots of extras, very comfy beds and the air conditioning units in the bedrooms were very welcome in August. The outdoor space is lovely a large verhanda with outdoor furniture and space to hang laundry ect. We had a great holiday here for two weeks and will definitely be using this apartment again.
Stayed in Lantana 24....what a pleasant stay..very clean..comfortable beds...secure...close to amenities..100 yards from beach. Had fabulous time...lots of bars/restaurants in nearby Holetown and Speightstown. Would recommend staying in this apartment..have stayed here a few times and never disappointed. Have booked again for next year!
