A few months ago when looking up deals for some winter sunshine, I came across a great deal on Holidaypirates to Barbados. The flights were coming in at £350 each directly from Glasgow, and since there were going to be 4 of us going, we were able to get our accommodation for the week for £150 each! Unfortunately I discovered that Thomas Cook flights are best avoided, but that’s for another post. The holiday was fantastic though, and our accommodation really made it. We hired a two bedroom bungalow on the West coast of Barbados called Bliss Villa which came with it’s own pool.
The villa was fantastic and the pictures on the website really didn’t do it justice. It came with two bathrooms, an amazing pool and was under a five minute walk to the beach. The West coast although slightly more expensive than other areas, was a great location to be in, with lots of restaurants to choose from in the surrounding area. Barbados also has cheap bus travel, which is an experience in itself, so getting anywhere on the island is quick and easy.
I would really recommend this villa if you ever plan a trip to Barbados, especially if you are in a group as it even comes with an easy to use BBQ and is close to all the amenities you may need!
