Perfect getaway for two people. Not luxury but clean and very comfortable, everything you might need, almost like staying in your own home. But what a view, right on the beach in Holetown! Palm Beach Condos are right next to Mango Bay but didn't feel cramped. (In fact, some of the units are owned by Mango Bay and rented out as part of their package.) Friendly quiet condo neighbors for the most part. Easy walk to almost anything you might need or want. We didn't hang out in the unit all that much; there's so much to do and see in Barbados! Owner is very friendly, easy to deal with and very accommodating. We'd easily return there and give it a high recommendation.
(If I had to list any negatives, it would include the limited on-site parking. Fortunately we stayed in the low season so no problem whatsoever. But I imagine it gets dicey in high season. Also, forget trying to drive back there later in the evening as First Street sometimes becomes party street! Never all that noisy at the beach end of the condos, and felt safe even when the street was filled with people jammin' to the tunes.)
Just returned from a 1week stay at #1 Palm Beach Condo and had a fabulous time.
Booking was a breeze, checking with the Property Manager was fast and simple. Everything was ready for us including a few groceries to get us started along with some snack and beverages.
The condo is truly in a perfect location, right at the beach so you are just a few steps away from the sand. On the second floor so you have fantastic views of the beach, ocean and sunsets. It is so close to everything, shops, restaurants & groceries all within walking distance. The people are so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Transportation was great. We used taxis and tried out the Reggae Bus just for fun. Watersports were lots of fun; we had a Jetski ride with Izon and did some snorkelling from the Blue glass bottom boat with Marvin. There is lots of great evening entertainment at the local bars and restaurants, so make sure to ask what nights so you don’t miss all the fun. Fantastic place , fantastic location, fantastic vacation. Will definitely visit again. T&K
We have just returned from another memorable holiday at #1 Palm Beach Condos. The condo is in a superb situation overlooking the beautiful wide beach with water sports available. Opposite is a man made Reef, full of lovely tropical fish and is very popular with snorkelers. Also there are turtles in the sea which often swim close to the shore.
#1 is on the upper floor which is good for privacy and the balcony looks directly on to the beach, only a few feet away. The balcony is a lovely place to sit with a glass of wine (or rum!) and relax. It is set in a stunning tropical garden with a private pool. It is very well equipped with plenty of fans for keeping cool. There is a new 40” flat screen television, plus another in the bedroom.
Palm Beach Condos are situated in central Holetown and within easy walking distance of numerous bars, restaurants, banks and a large modern supermarket.
We have been staying here for many years and cannot imagine staying anywhere else. We highly recommend it.
If like us you are looking for the perfect spot to relax and unwind then this is definitely the place to go. In fact, it was probably the most relaxing holiday we have had for a very long time. The apartment has everything you could possibly need, we cooked in the apartment for 4 nights and ate on the balcony taking in the amazing vista and awesome sunsets, we swam 3-4 times a day in the ocean (less than 1 minute walk from the apartment) and the lovely pool which is surrounded by tropical gardens with humming birds and mongooses, very amusing to see Pat's cat Whisky play chasing the mongooses! There are numerous bars and restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk and a great supermarket to buy anything you might need. We left feeling totally chilled and relaxed, what more can you ask from a holiday ! Thank you Dayle, George, Pat, Chris, Ros, Julia and not forgetting Whisky!
I’ve been lucky enough to visit Barbados about ten times and have never stayed in the same place twice, but I will now never stay anywhere other than Palm Beach Condominiums again, and No 1 really is the ultimate location right next to the beach. The views of the sunsets from the balcony were incredible, and I loved waking up in the morning and looking straight out of the window over the sea from bed.
The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable - we had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. It is also very easy walking distance from Lime Grove shopping centre, the new Massey (Waitrose) supermarket, the Chattel village and countless bars and restaurants.
There is a very quiet, peaceful swimming pool which made a lovely refreshing change to the sea, and the mature tropical gardens are incredibly well maintained.
I really can’t rate this apartment highly enough. The owners and Pat, the manager over in Barbados, were incredibly helpful and friendly to deal with, even rescuing us and welcoming us back when the hotel we had planned to spend our last few days at turned out to be a total disaster!
If you want a hassle-free home from home in the best location in Barbados then you really don’t need to look anywhere else!
