Our seventh visit to barbados but our first to the Island Inn, probably not the last as this is a real treasure. Tucked away on the edge of the historic Garrison District, it's advertised as 'not on the beach', but this is deceptive, as a left turn out of the front door leaves you 100 yards from one of Barbados' most beatiful beaches - Pebbles Beach. I have been further from the beach in several 'beach front' hotels! A charming feature is that racehorses from the nearby garrison Savannah racecourse are brought down to swim off this beach at dawn every day. The hotel itself has only 24 rooms, but masses of public areas, so that you feel almost as if you're at a private house party. The staff are genuinely friendly as you come to expect on Barbados, and while the menu is short, the food is invariably well-cooked and well presented.
