"Do not hesitate to stay at # 14. You are right close the beach and close walking distance to anything and everything you need. The other residents are very pleasant and the complex is extremely well kept in comparison to some others. There is the added bonus of musical entertainment from the Mango Bay bar next door which added to the overall ambience in the evenings. Would not hesitate to recommend this condo if you are staying in Barbados."

Paget - March 2018.

"We did have a car and there is a private lot available which is very convenient. We would HIGHLY recommend # 14."

Robert - February 2018.

"# 14 was a wonderful find. It is all you would like in an accommodation: cleanliness, security, management on site, steps to the beach - and a welcome pack of shopping if you wish (paid for locally).

It is situated nicely in that you can have both the peaceful tranquillity of having a slice of great beach with clear blue waters (that at times you can have, what it seems, is to yourself) or you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of Holetown life (steel drums and entertainment at Surfside - or Sunday night karaoke street parties outside the One Love Bar).

The property has a great lush, tropical garden with greenery, coconut trees and flowers. There is a pool for those that might opt for that (though we did not need to utilize it since the beach has refreshingly wonderful and swimmable water). Also, loungers are available to take onto the beach (very convenient). You literally step outside your door and walk maybe less that 20 steps and ...BOOM...the beach is there. You can then walk along the coast in either direction to explore the other nearby beaches and resorts dotted along the west coast.

# 14 is well appointed: great kitchen with ice in freezer, cooker, microwave, utensils and glasswear should you want to self-cater some meals. Plenty of storage/space for clothes and luggage. Effective A/C unit with enough electric fans throughout the apartment as well.

Pat (the on site manager) was very communicative and was accommodating to us (very grateful for that). We fell in love with the west coast of Barbados and this condo was that perfect base that allowed us to do so, so effortlessly. We did not have a car but a bus stop is just at the corner (1 minute away) allowing us to get to both the northern tip of the island (Animal Flower Cave) or south towards Bridgetown (in our case, Fitts Village) very efficiently and cheaply (only two Barbadian dollars no matter how far you are going and an experience in itself !)

Book this condo and fall in love with west coast like we did. (Mango Bay Hotel next door, just FYI... We found no problems with some music coming from there, when a majority of the time we heard the lapping of the waves against the shore. That is the only music I really ever remember hearing. Thank you for sharing this slice of paradise !"

Christina - January 2018.


"Hi Irene,

Everything at # 14 Palm Beach was absolutely fine.

I appreciated the new bed linen and towels, and the condo was spotlessly clean. In the kitchen everything I needed was there, and the bathroom facilities were good.

I shall certainly be looking to book another return visit.

Many thanks for dealing with all the arrangements so professionally".  

 Helen - East Yorkshire, UK. November/December 2017. (Repeat guest). 


"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. 


""The location is perfect right next to the beach and there are plenty of sun loungers to take onto the beach too so we spent a lot of time there. We booked number 7 (first floor) but were actually staying in 14 (ground floor), this was just a mix up and were offered to move into the correct apartment the following day, but decided to stay put as 14 was really nice too and easier to get to the beach from the ground floor.

Pat (the apartment manager) arranged some shopping for our arrival which was great, and was very helpful throughout our stay.

The bedroom has good air conditioning which made things very comfortable, although the the windows are more traditional with shutters rather than glass.

It's really easy to just walk out of your door to find something to do/eat.

All in all a great place to stay, especially if you just need a base for exploring the island (we rented a car), and lounge around on the beach."

Greg - August 2017.


"Just to let you know we had a great time in Barbados. The accommodation was very good - would not change a thing. We would like to have the same apartment # 14 Palm Beach for next year".

Jim - Hants, UK. May 2017.


"Great location, direct beach access. There are also shops and nice restaurants close by. Very nice apartment, great WIFI connection. One can hear a bit the music from a bar which is close by but the music stops at 11pm. Would highly recommend the place and will try to stay there again when visiting Barbados next time".

Bernd - Vienna, Austria. February 2017.


"# 14 is in a great location - on the beach and handy for Holetown nightlife".

Peter - Richmond, UK. February 2017.


"Pat who met us on arrival was very helpful in explaining all about the apartment".

Colin - London, UK. January 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 although on balance we 
feel we preferred # 14. The better points were: 

The wet room/shower (hand held as well as high shower). 
2 settees in living room. 
Bigger TV. 
Smaller dining table - we like having our evening meal on the terrace 
and the table in # 14 was easier to move than in # 7 - which was huge ! 

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 

Kind regards",

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


"Hi Irene

We had a very enjoyable time in Barbados at # 14 Palm Beach Condo.

Everything went smoothly and we liked the apartment.

Pat looked after us very well.

We will certainly go back.

Thanks again, all the best."

Andrea & Chris - Kent, UK. January 2017.


"What a beautiful time we had with gorgeous weather.

This apartment is so well equipped and we have never slept so well.

The fact that we are 20 yards from the beach is a super bonus.

We loved it and will definitely be booking again."

Anita & Chris - Lancashire, UK. November/December 2016.


"Hi Irene,

Everything was excellent.

We had a good flight and Harold was there to meet us at the airport.

Pat was wonderful and showed us everything about the condo. We liked everything about its location and furnishings. Exactly right for our needs. Clean, spacious, well furnished and equipped, with comfortable beds.

The kitchen was well-equipped and it was easy to prepare and cook meals in there.

The maid service was thorough, with towels and bedding being replaced during or stay, and the entire condo given a good clean-through.

We like the location of # 14, being set in lovely gardens with a good sized pool on one side and the beautiful beach on the other, all hidden away from the bustle of Holetown's 1st Street.

We enjoyed having our G & Ts on the balcony before we turned in to the sound of tree frogs.

Everything about this holiday more than met our expectations and we hope to return soon.


Helen & Barry - Yorkshire, UK. November 2016.


"Hi Irene,

We had a fabulous holiday. Everything was perfect and we could not fault # 14 Palm Beach.

Pat was very helpful when you needed her.

We will definitely go there again. We just love it. You have everything you need...shops, restaurants and bars. No need for taxis.

Thanks again".

 Renee & Stan - Lancs, UK. June/July 2016.


Just to say my wife and I had a wonderful time and everything was fantastic.

Pat was very friendly and helpful gave us lots of local information, she also got me a card and a cake for my 50th birthday.

Can't wait to go back. Thanks again."

Alan & Sue - Hereford, UK. April 2016.


"Greetings Irene,

We had a much needed holiday and thank you for all the information/maps etc. you provided.

Your customer service cannot be faulted and we would definitely consider using your services again if we return to Barbados.

Kind regards,

Mike & Frances - Hull, UK. Dec. 2015/Jan. 2016.


"Irene, Your web site is very informative.

We loved Palm Beach and # 14 was well kitted out, clean, comfortable and with a good shower".

Natalie & Ross - Surrey, UK. December 2015.


Hello Irene,

We had a fantastic holiday at # 14 Palm Beach in Barbados.

From the first time I contacted you via your website everything ran smoothly. Virtually everything I needed to know was on your website. It is very informative with plenty of photos for each of the properties. Any questions that I asked were answered quickly.

The accommodation was brilliant. Spotlessly clean with everything that you need for a self-catering holiday.

The holiday information pack you sent was superb. It gave a lot of really good information. Also, it is great that you can order groceries ready for when you arrive.

Pat was great. We didn't have any problems but she was always about if we needed her help. She even offered to take us to the cricket ground in Bridgetown to get tickets for the test match.

So, there you have it, a wonderful experience from booking, right through to the end of our holiday. I will have no problem recommending Bajan Retreats to anybody, and when we do return to Barbados you will be the first person I contact. I couldn't have asked for any more.


 Steve & Tracey - Birmingham, UK. April/May 2015.


"Hi Irene,

Fantastic holiday !!

The accommodation at # 14 Palm Beach was good and very spacious.

You have a good web site and the service we received from Irene Ford's Bajan Retreats was absolutely outstanding. Highly recommended and we will certainly use again.

Thank you for all your help".

Maxine - London, UK. May 2014.


"The location was amazing and the condo perfect. It couldn't be faulted. It was even better than we expected. We would have booked again for next year but unfortunately it has already been booked.

You provide a fantastic and comprehensive service and we would definitely use you again.

Thank you so much".

Debbie & Bill - Sheffield, UK. February/March 2013.


"The accommodation and facilities exceeded our expectations in terms of size, location and quality. The apartment was very well-equipped.

We were visited by friends living up in St. Lucy who were impressed with the condos and their standard.

We were both impressed with the service we received and the local information provided in advance which was vastly superior to that provided by the large companies.

Thanks to Pat in Barbados for her friendly and approachable style. The environment provided us with everything we needed for a relaxing break.  We hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

All the very best,

Nigel & Tracey - North Yorkshire, UK. February 2013.


"Hi Irene
Had a great holiday at # 14 Palm Beach and we would like to book for a similar time next year if possible.
Really want to stay in # 14 again if possible as we love the location of this condo.

Sue Harding - Chesterfield, UK. January 2013.


"Just to say we had a fantastic holiday. We would love to go back at the same time next year".

Chris Smith - Hampshire, UK. January 2013.

"Palm Beach is in a fabulous location right on the beach but close to the bars and restaurants in 1st & 2nd Street.

Maid service provided and you have the beauty of having cooking facilities and a fridge etc.

The pool area was well-maintained and there were plenty of sun beds available.

We spent a great day at Mullins Beach as well as eating out at the beach side restaurant one night. The food was as always fabulous. We also splashed out for the Sunday brunch at the nearby Sandy Lane. Expensive but worth it for a treat!  You just won't need to eat for the next few days ! Other restaurants worth a mention are Cariba and The Mews. Great meals and service in both.

There are so many great restaurants in and around Holetown you really are spoilt for choice which is why we opted to stay in an apartment rather than an expensive all inclusive hotel.

We also had a great trip swimming with the turtles - great fun ! A must is a visit to Lexy's piano bar too.

All in all Holetown is a great place and Palm Beach is in one of the beach locations to enjoy it ! Hope to return soon !! "
