"Hello Irene,

We had another lovely holiday at Palm Beach.

Many thanks".

Andrea & Chris - Kent, UK. December 2018. (Repeat Palm Beach guests).

 

"I had a fantastic time and the condo is beautiful.

I want to be back there !

The service and information you provide is amazing.

Thanks".

Fiona - Cheshire, UK. November/December 2018. (Repeat Palm Beach guest).

 

"We had a brilliant holiday at # 7.

The accommodation was spacious and very comfortable.  We like staying at
places which are well provided for in terms of kitchen
equipment/utensils, books, DVDs etc. as it really adds to the
holiday. 

We loved sitting on the balcony and having a cup of tea in the morning
and later, reading with a sundowner when we'd come up from the beach,
watching the sunset.

The access to the beach through the gate was special and I loved
snorkelling and my jet ski trip with Mali. The gardens were lovely - my
sister described them as 'idyllic ' when I sent her a photo.

Being able to walk to the local restaurants was great and we tried many
of them.

The quick response to emails by you, Irene, during the booking process
was much appreciated and Pat's thorough run-through of everything in
the condo when we arrived was much appreciated, together with the lack
of pressure to check out as no one was following us in for a few days.
If we could have stayed on we would have !

We are booking again for next year.

Many thanks for all your help".

Caroline & Keith - Berkshire, UK. March/April 2018.

 

"We had a fantastic time.

Pat was her usual polite self - so were all of the other Palm Beach Condo owners that we met.

# 7 was well-equipped and was kept very clean.

We hope to return in 2019.

Thanks",

Alan & Sue - Hereford, UK. March 2018. (Repeat Palm Beach guests).

 

"Great place. Stylish and cosy. Kitchen well equipped for eating in. The hotel next door has music each night that ends at 11 p.m. Nice beach just through the gate. Great value for Barbados !"

Jeff - February 2018.

 

"We found # 7 Palm Beach to be excellent, and Pat was very helpful.

The accommodation and facilities were exactly as shown on your web site.

We will be contacting you again about next year !"

Yvonne - Kent, UK. January 2018.

 

"# 7 Palm Beach was beautiful, couldn't have asked for better.

The condo was fantastic, nicely decorated, well equipped kitchen, lovely balcony with views of the pool and lush tropical gardens. 

The condo was spotless and regularly cleaned by a lovely maid who was always smiling.

We had a fabulous time. Pat (the manager) was excellent, helpful and friendly - as were other guests we encountered.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday".


Sandra - Flintshire, UK. January 2018.

 

Thank you Irene for being the friendliest, most helpful person we could wish to book through. Nothing was too much trouble and you always replied promptly to our e-mails and questions".

We had an absolutely wonderful Christmas at Palm Beach Condominiums.

The facilities and location were perfect - simply first class. The condos are in a fabulous location right on the beach with a great selection of restaurants nearby on 1st and 2nd Street. You couldn't be in a better spot.

When we arrived at # 7 the lovely Pat was waiting to greet us - and our pre-ordered groceries were all there. Pat showed us around the apartment. She was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.

The condo is one of fourteen and # 7 is on the top floor facing the pool and the gorgeous beach just a few steps away. The condo has a large dining/living area, a small but well equipped kitchen, a large bedroom (with air-con) a bathroom, a dressing area and a balcony. Both the front door and the patio doors have security gates on them so you can open the doors but lock both the gates and let the lovely breeze blow through without having any safety concerns.

Everyone was very helpful and they made us feel very comfortable. Pat was always on hand to answer any of our questions. The housekeeper was very friendly and kept the place spotless. Chris kept the gardens and the lovely swimming pool tidy.

We really enjoyed the beach just outside - where the snorkelling was great - even seeing the turtles.

There is a great supermarket (Massy) only 5 minutes walk away.

We tried many of the local restaurants and never had a bad meal.

We couldn't believe how friendly everyone was. We felt very safe when we went out and are so glad we found this little piece of paradise !!

We would certainly recommend Palm Beach to family, friends and colleagues. It was everything we expected - and more. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else and are already looking forward to going back".


Paul & Sharron - West Yorkshire, UK. December 2017.

 

"Hi Irene,

Your website is full of information and easy to use. I cannot think of anything to improve it.

The accommodation absolutely matched our expectations - it is lovely".


Fiona & Mark - Cheshire, UK. November/December 2017. (Repeat guests). 

 

"Hi Irene,

We really enjoyed our holiday.

The literature you provided was brilliant and, had we been first time travellers to the Caribbean, extremely beneficial. In fact there was additional information in the pack that helped us too".


Lorna & Steve - Kent, UK. October 2017. 

 

"We just LOVED our stay !

As soon as we arrived we knew that we had made the right decision !

# 7 was wonderful, right next to the beach and a reef where you can snorkel - and the private garden/pool area. would be the top benefits we would pick out !

Pat was there to welcome us and answer our questions - she was fantastic - thank you for everything Pat ! We loved sitting on the balcony watching the mongooses run around and the variety of bird life, and even a couple of rainbows stretching over the sea. From our apartment, it was a quick few metres to the beach where we could sleep in a shady spot (permitted to use loungers from the garden on the beach) or go snorkelling to find a variety of fish literally a few metres from the waters edge, or lie back watching the sunset and the flying fish (a real highlight) which seemed to make their appearance just as the sun was setting.

The locals were a delight to get to know, very friendly and welcoming, and always up for a conversation.

The apartment and gardens were quiet and peaceful (apart from some music from the hotel next door which started after dinner and stopped at 11 p.m.), comfortable bed, sea view, spacious room and lounge, coffee shop a few metres up the road....the list goes on ! All in all, if we have the chance, we'll be back for sure !"


Bron - September 2017. 

 

 

"This place is awesome. We love the fact that it is right by the beach. Highly recommend this condo. Will definitely be staying here again".

Damian - August 2017.

 

"# 7 was great. Close to everything you need. Right by the beach with lots of activities, like jet skiing, boating and snorkelling. I saw lots of fish and 2 turtles while snorkelling by the reef. All of the Holetown restaurants are only minutes walk away. The condo is perfect for 2 people, with lots of space. Definitely recommended and would stay again".

Mark - July 2017.

 

"This little gem is in the midst of it all ! By a beautiful beach, many nearby restaurants and shops with a convenient location for exploring the whole island. Yet it feels a world away, with lush gardens and the tree frogs whistling at night".

Dina - July 2017.

 

"Location, location, location !!! WOW !!! 

Beach, bars and restaurants within a minutes’ walk. Fantastic !! 


Imagine having a beautiful beach at the end of your garden !!! Stay here and that is what you get. The private pool and gardens are like a little oasis of peace and tranquillity.

Pat and the team do a fantastic job looking after the complex and the guests. I felt at home straight away.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable (especially the bed).

With only 14 units there is always plenty of room around the gardens and fresh water pool - and you have the option to take your sun lounger to the beach which is literally a few steps away. Shops, bars, restaurants and bus stops are less than a minutes walk. I would definitely book again.

All the best". 


Tony - UK. May 2017.


 

"Irene,

Your web site is great and # 7 Palm Beach was pretty much perfect.

Thanks for all your help".

Fiona & Mark - Cheshire, UK. April/May 2017. (Repeat Palm Beach guests).

 

"Hi Irene,

First class experience with both yourself & Pat.

Pat was excellent in helping with any problem.

Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Thank you for all your help.

Due to our brilliant experience we would like to book through you again".

Sandie - St Albans, UK.  March 2017.

 

"What a great location - and what a great place

Everything was fantastic.

We had a great holiday. The place was immaculate, and very nice decor. Very nice pool and a great beach. This was a great value for the price. Walking distance to great restaurants, shopping and groceries.

We will definitely be back next year. Would recommend this place to anyone".


Palmer - Ottawa, Canada. March 2017.

 

"Dear Irene, 

Firstly, we had a very good time, Aside from 1 day, during the remainder 
of the holiday the weather was as expected. 

The position of the condos we found to be excellent. Having the ability 
to go to either the pool or the beach within a few steps was something 
that we greatly enjoyed. In particular, being able to take loungers onto 
the beach was brilliant. 

The proximity to the local supermarket, shops and restaurants is a huge 
plus. On our first evening we had a concern that the noise from the 
Mango Bay Hotel might be a problem but everything died down by about 11pm. 

The pool area and the gardens were extremely well maintained. 

As you know, due to lack of availability at # 14, we moved from # 7 to # 
14 during our holiday. Both condos were very nice.

The furnishings and equipment in both condos were very good. The beds 
were extremely comfortable and the regular change of linen, towels and 
beach towels worked well. 

The arrangements regarding taxis for airport collection and delivery 
worked perfectly and the advice and assistance of Pat were appreciated.

We had a really good time and would a) seriously consider returning and 
b) recommend to friends. 

Finally, thanks to you for the smooth and efficient booking process and 
information. 

Kind regards",

John and Penny - Razac D'Eymet, France. January 2017.

 

"What an awesome stay at # 7 ! It was such a great price for all that it included. We had never done a self catering vacation before, always staying in hotels or all inclusive resorts. We absolutely loved the freedom to go see and do everything around Barbados !
 
We spent a lot of time poolside and at the beach. I loved watching the sea from our balcony as I had my morning coffee. The condo was incredibly clean and had all of the necessary items we needed. When we couldn't find something we needed, the manager, Pat, was able to easily locate it for us ! She was exceptional and so sweet. The maid was great, she came every other day and the place looked awesome at all times !

We would absolutely stay here again ! The location could not be more perfect. We made it all over the island during our one week stay and had a great time touring around Holetown to all of the great shops and restaurants (we loved Zaccios !)

We had a very memorable trip and can't wait to come back !"

Jenny - Broadview Heights, OH, USA. September 2016.


 

"Hi Irene,

 

Thank you for facilitating our holiday. Your service was as efficient as ever.
 
Palm Beach was as lovely as ever and Pat is just the best.
 
 # 7 certainly matched our expectations.

We had a great time".

Fiona & Mark - Cheshire, UK. April 2016. (Repeat Palm Beach guests).

 

 

"# 7 Palm Beach is in a fabulous position with a lovely view from the balcony.

The sun beds and umbrellas were good.

Pat was really helpful.

We loved the place and will book again".
