Overview

Quote:
Our favorite place to visit was Barbados Wildlife Reserve. Amazing animals, hundreds of tortoises, and deerlike creatures wander the paths through the reserve. We went at feeding time so that we could see the famous green monkey. They were delightful, mischievous, and fascinating to watch. Our favorite beaches were Accra and Crane. Accra had local charm of vendors and ladies who braid hair - all were very nice. There was a wonderful restaurant on the edge of the beach that we had dinner at. We also visited Harrison's Caves. It was a tram ride through the caves, and call to make reservations as it can be busy, but definitely worth the wait. We visited the rugged east coast to ...Read More

Venetian Resort Hotel Casino

Hotel | "Rockley Interval Ownership"

Quote:
Good accommodations. It had two twins in the bedroom with air conditioning, a queen pull-out in the living room, one television, and full kitchen with adequate supplies. There was ample hot water and washing machines available.

Nice community feel, several folks there come back each year. They were very friendly but not invasive. We were right on the golf course.

Bonito Beach Bar & Restaurant

Restaurant | "Bonito Beach Bar & Restaurant"

We ordered the caribbean buffet. Buffet in Barbados does not mean serve yourself or eat all you want. Workers serve you small portions of everything. The vegetables were very good. There were several pork and lamb items to choose from. Very modest and semi-rustic atmosphere with a gorgeous view of the east coastline.

It was a jungle where you walked on paths where the animals are free to wander wherever they like. This a cage free habitat. The animals are fascinating to see in a free environment.

The green monkeys wander between the general reserve and this park area. We visited at feeding time so that we saw the largest variety of animals.

Accra Beach

Attraction

Quote:
It was a beautiful beach with a gorgeous view - a nice place to watch the sunset. It was safe, not overly crowded, and comfortable. There are huts to buy drinks and people who will serve you on the beach. The vendors are friendly and have reasonably priced wares, and were never pushy. This is a nice way to experience the pleasures of Barbados.
