Stayed in the new Royal Apartments which are brand new - we were the first to stay in ours. We had a one bedroom apartment which was more than adequate for a couple, with a very nice open plan living area with fully equipped kitchen, large lounge area complete with flatscreen tv, dvd player and bose sound dock and a spacious furnished balcony looking out towards the sea.
Very nice bathroom with walk-in shower but no bath. There was a handy welcome pack for our arrival including tea / coffee / milk / bread / bacon etc and also a basket full of Elemis and Penhaligon goodies - shampoo / conditoner / body lotions / soaps - the basket contained enough to last the two of us our entire stay so I could have left all our toiletries at home!
Another very nice touch is the maid service - daily - this is the cleanest place we have ever stayed! They also do all your washing and ironing for you so you can afford to pack light.
We had use of three different pools (the Royal Villas pool, the spa pool which is located close to Mullins Beach, and the sanctuary pool, in addition to access to the Beach Club at Mullins (comfy loungers / towels and beach service) and a very well equipped gym.
This is a very peaceful place to stay, whilst being only 5 minutes in the car from all that Barbados has to offer on the West Coast - the Lone Star restaurant / Tides etc. Closer still is a restaurant called Sassafras which is located at Sugar Hill - we had lunch and dinner here and the food was fabulous with a gorgeous beach view - you can walk to Sugar Hill from the Royal Westmoreland in five minutes.
Regarding restaurants, if you don't mind a drive it is well worth visiting the East Coast of Barbados, which is by far the most stunning part of the island - Crane Beach is gorgeous and you can have lunch at the Crane Hotel - we went to D'Onforio Italian Restaurant there which has just opened - great pizza and pasta but we hear Zen is the place to go for dinner. Our favourite meal of the entire holiday was lunch at The newly refurbished Altlantis in Bathsheba - run by the owners of Little Good Harbour / Fishport (also highly recommended) - the view is stunning out to the Atlantic Coast and the Bajan food was excellent.
All in all we found the Royal Westmoreland a fantastic place to stay and will definitely go back.
