This is simple, we went once, we have been back half a dozen times... The McColins, (under the watchful eye of Wilf and through the powerhouse that is Errol, of whom, if ever anyone was ever born to do their job, is this marvellous man,) provide the ultimate holiday experience, like staying with your favourite, doting, family members without any...

We enjoyed our stay at Shades Barbados. Good location with quick access to Paynes Bay beach, a lovely beach with calm waters, white sand and water sports. We chose Shades to get an alternative experience rather than being closed off in a hotel. Most of the reviews give Shades 5 stars and they truly deserve them. The accommodation is excellent...

We have just come back from a fantastic 10 days at Shades, and can't recommend the apartments too highly. They are in a lovely garden setting and are very peaceful. Our apartment was spotlessly clean. We rarely sat in the lounge as the balcony had table and chairs and we ate and relaxed out there, overlooking the pool. The manager,...

My husband and I stayed in Apt 6 for 2 weeks. The setting is like being in a tropical paradise and the apartment was large and spacious and offered everything you needed.

As with so many others we booked this holiday because of the reviews. We stayed in Appt 1 which was great because there were two rooms but only the two of us so the spare room was good storage for suitcases etc. It might be a bit cramped if there were four adults as there is only one bathroom /...

Our family of three was happy to stay in Apt #3 for the week February 16-23rd. We chose the upper floor so as to have a view of our oasis of trees, flowers & pool and to benefit from the daily breezes. There's plenty of space on the balcony for breakfast and dining on "Connie's" Thursday, Friday and Saturday night...
