This was our first catamaran trip and it exceeded our expectations in all respects. The catamaran itself is beautiful- pristine and in tip top shape. The crew, Tony, Casper, and our chef Lindel were exceptionally professional and personable. Our lunch was absolutely delicious and all 12 passengers raved about how wonderful it was. They picked us up at our house in Holetown and dropped us back after the cruise which was great. The cruise was really nice in that it went from Bridgetown almost all the way to Speightstown. They stopped for snorkeling or swimming and anchored for lunch at a lovely spot.
We can’t wait to return on our next trip to Barbados!
Thank you to the Seaduced team for such a great experience in Barbados.

Folkestone Marine Park & Visitor Centre

Reviewed By paulm2101 - UK

Excellent snorkelling from the beach with toilets and showers on site. Sunbeds for hire at 10USD pp. Small bar for drinks and small shop for ice creams, water etc. Plenty of shade and picnic benches. Free parking.
Shopping centre (upmarket) nearby with delis and similar.
Well worth a visit for an inexpensive fun day on the west coast.
Right on the boardwalk for nice walks up and down the coast.

Reefers & Wreckers Dive Shop

Reviewed By condiver - New York City, New York

Had a good time diving with Phillip and taking "slow down" lessons from Captain Archie. Did six dives, Bright Ledge, Pamir Wreck, Stavronikita,Dottins reef, Great Ledge, Cement Pier. Very professional and treated each diver or divers according to their experience level. Would highly recommend. And remember "there are two speeds here on Barbados, slow and stop"-Captain Archie. LOL a good time was had by all.

Apes Hill Golf Club

The newest golf course in the Caribbean opened in December 2009. Apes Hill Club enjoys a prime location at almost 1000 feet above sea level in the centre of Barbados. Located amongst a richly diverse landscape of rolling meadows, dense tropical forest, and coral stone quarries. The Club and its splendid amenities are establishing a new standard of excellence in the Caribbean. The developers, with a shared passion for creating communities designed to preserve and enhance their natural environments, have risen admirably to the challenge. The 470 acres of land has been divided into eight neighbourhoods with two two-thirds of the acreage ramaining as open space. Property owners have a selection of custom homes or semi-detatched villas which blend harmoniously with nature while affording unparalleled views of breathtaking scenery.

This is a wonderful course to play. It is expensive, but golf is on this beautiful island! The staff are very friendly and helpful, loading clubs onto your your cart (which is a must), ice in an icebox, water, towels... all you would expect from a high quality club.
The new clubhouse is very glamorous but does need a few tweaks. Breakfast was slow which is not ideal when you might want to practice before playing, maybe a cappuccino instead of coffee out of a thermos!
The course is fabulous. Challenging in places, wonderful views, monkeys if you are lucky and a cart that pops up regularly with cold drinks and snacks. Apart from the clubhouse, the loos on the course are not ideal especially for the ladies so recommend a comfort break back at the club after the 9th hole.

Fabulous location for a snack or a drink on Mullins Beach
We expected to be stung for drinks but it was very reasonable and an enjoyable experience each time we visited (including live Champions League football!).
Good live music on Sunday nights and a pleasant vibe to the place.

Earthworks Pottery

Beautiful, fully-functional tableware decorated with traditional designs.

Reviewed By DinFrance - France

Now I am one that normally runs a million miles from something such as this and/or craft-related places. I loved the comment in the Visitors Book which said 'My wife really loves your pottery'. Clearly, in this world of being politically correct, I cannot jump to the conclusion that this comment was written by a 'bloke' BUT if it was - then detected the undertones that this chap was in the same camp as myself i.e. there under duress.
That said, the place really grew on myself - plus the rest of the family. You could walk inside to see everyone working on the clay/pots etc and it was really interesting. In wasn't some polished-off show room but really was a true-working environment.
Then (the owner I guessed) gave a couple of the kids a chunk of clay each and they were they were off creating and it suddenly become an 'interactive event'. There were absolutely over the moon.
I for my part was most impressed with the visitors toilet (restroom)! Admittedly an odd thing to say but the wall was fully decorated with brightly coloured pieces of pottery - and coloured fairy-lights. It was wonderful.
All these little attentions-to-detail certainly notched up our view of the place (and even mine!).
Clearly the pottery is of a high quality. I was most impressed by the effort one of the staff went in wrapping and boxing up the previous customer's purchases. A thoroughness I could only ever dream of.
So by the time we came to depart, everyone was extremely happy plus we were blessed with our own-made a) turtle and b) Boeing 777. (The latter survived the rigours of Bajan roads slightly less well on the journey back home).

John Moore's Bar

Reviewed By VoyagerCANADA - Brampton, Canada

The most elegant thing about this place is the paint job on the outside. Likely paid for by Mount Gay as it is a jazzy yellow ith brown mount gay words and images. The building is a set of slave chattel houses strung together from curbside to waterline.
Roof. Yes it has one . Perhaps it leaks in the rain. The sign has no Apostrophe S. so it may be John Moore.
No shot glasses here. flak, mickey or bottle of rum . Vodka if you must. Banks beer.
No food. No snacks.
Bucket of ixe a a cola for mix.
DONE.
Talk to locals. See the oceanside sunset. Dont ask to join the card game in the back.
A washroom . Not for the dainty.
Experience it once. or twice a visit to Northern barbasos. Half way beteen Holetown and Speitstown. (Really.)
You can say it is north of Taylors Gap in Weston. But drivers reference everything else near here to this shack .

Holders Farmers Market

Holders Farmers' Market was created in 2011 to help local organic farmers sell their produce to customers at a fair price. Great place for organic produce, food and juices, craft and live music. Holder's market is a wonderful cultural experience for the entire family. Plus, you never know which celebrity you'll meet at Holder's Hill Market located on the "Platinum Coast".

Reviewed By Loucha2015 - Coventry, United Kingdom

This market is open on Sundays. It is set on a hill overlooking a lovely green Polo Pitch. You can also see the sea in the background! There are lots of different stalls selling fresh produce, vegetables etc.and homemade products such as jam, hummus, bread. There are also arts and craft stalls selling jewellery and Barbados artwork. There are also places to eat and drink and you can sit in a tranquil setting and take in the whole experience.

Hunte's Gardens

You might hear this garden before you see it; its delightfully eccentric owner,Anthony Hunte BCH, plays classical music throughtout the garden. this is the working end of old Castle Grant plantation, where sugar cane was once processed into syrup. Step through the gate and you'll soon tread on the old weigh bridge, where loads of cane were tallied. Just past the old stone outbuildings, where statues lurk among exotic plants, you'll find yourself on the lip of a great, hemispherical sinkhole in the limestone substrate. Steps lead down and paths branch out through an exquisite profusion of flowering plants, with towering trees around the edges. Both here and farther along the top are a series of small secret Gardens, where you can sit to absorb the serenity and enjoy a picnic. Be sure to climb the upper level steps to Mr. Hunte's house, a transformation of the old stables. He'll invite you for refreshments-including his legendary rum punch or freshly made lemonade (for sale)-on his glorious, antique studded verandah overlooking the garden. If you're lucky, he'll tell you tales, and you will surely leave with some of your own. If you're driving, follow the red and white signs that read Hunte's Gardens, from all over the island. Or, come by taxi. If you take the local bus from the Fairchild Street Bus Stand in Bridgetown it's #5 Sugar Hill Bus - Bds$2 each way.

Reviewed By spirited74 - London, United Kingdom

A beautiful garden sadly not suitable for buggy’s or wheelchairs or people with walking difficulties as there are a lot of stairs and small winding pathways, but for the rest of us, an inspirational garden, I didn’t have enough time here, I suggest a minimum of 1.5 hours, more if you are keen gardener, lots of shady areas and Seating places if you want or need to take it slower,, I think there was a cafe we didn’t have time to stop,so not sure,

The last time I visited limegrove cinema was a lovely experience but this time was bittersweet for me. On arrival yesterday to see the emoji movie; the girl at the ticket booth had seemed so unapproachable. No standard English was used whilst speaking to customers and she seemed as if she didn't want to be there. Thankfully the waitress on the inside was completely different and was reluctant to assist me and brighten my experience. You guys really need to do something about the girl at the ticket booth.
