We found your website easy to navigate and full of useful information about the property.
The description on your web site was accurate and everything about # 8 exceeded our expectations. We can't think how the accommodation can be improved, it was like a 'home away from home' equipped with everything you could possibly need and the location was perfect, within easy walking distance of many shops, bars and restaurants.
It was a pleasure dealing with you both at Bajan Retreats, the booking process was very efficient and straightforward.
The information pack you provided was very comprehensive and the little extras, such as a pre-arranged taxi and grocery shopping, were much appreciated.
We had a wonderful time and look forward to our next holiday at Palm Beach.
