“Great Place to Stay in Worthing, Barbados”
Reviewed 24 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

This was our first trip to the south of Barbados. On our last trip 5 years ago we stayed in Sunset Crest, St James.

Worthing is a fantastic area with several excellent beaches, lots of places to eat and things to see and do. St Lawrence Gap is also about 7 minutes walk away with more restaurants and nightlife. We think it's far nicer than the so-called Platinum Coast which is boring and overpriced by comparison.

We hired flat #3 (ground floor corner) at Gentle Breeze apartments. This is a well organized beautifully kept low rise building with 6 apartments set in lovely gardens - tended by Alvin. Housekeeper, Akielah Browne, was there to meet us and showed us around and how things worked. The property is just off the Worthing Main Road (coastal) in a turning called Worthing View. There are two supermarkets nearby. The Big B is virtually opposite the driveway (2 minutes walk), and is the best stocked supermarket I've ever seen. The smaller Tri-Mart is open later ('til 22:00) and is on the Worthing Main Road, 5 minutes walk away. You also have use of a washing machine, dryer and clothes line to the rear of the apartment. Very useful if you are staying for 2 weeks!

Worthing Beach is a three minute walk from the apartment and is almost like having a private beach - with just a handful of people on it. You also have Rockley (aka Accra) Beach to the right and Sandy (aka Carib) Beach to the left. All are fantastic.

The only reason we could not give 5 stars is that the Wi-Fi is not yet fully realized at the apartment. We could never detect it anywhere in the building. This was a little disappointing as we needed to be contactable by email from a business point of view. However, Worthing has several free (i.e. no password needed), Wi-Fi spots. The nearest is on Worthing Beach itself just by the Coral Mist Hotel. This has a decent signal. You can also access free Wi-Fi from the nearby (excellent) MOJO Bar on the Main Road near the Sea Foam Haciendas apartments; the Carib Beach Bar (on Sandy Beach) and sometimes I picked up another good signal from something called Free Island Wi-Fi.

All in all, we had a great time, and would not hesitate to recommend Gentle Breeze Apartments as it has everything you could possibly need to have a fine holiday, without breaking the bank!. We were sorry to be coming home. We would certainly love to book again if we are lucky enough to be able to make it to Barbados in December 2014

Thanks for the lovely review. We try to really make Gentle Breeze Apartments a "home away from home." However, unfortunately, things beyond our control get in the way. When Danielle arrived our new tv and wi-fi service was being installed after much unexplainable delay from a new service in Barbados. Unfortunately they ran into an unseen problem with the internet. While there is internet service the signal was weak in some areas on the property and stronger in others, particularly near the office, which is where I communicate with our staff when I am off island. Glad Danielle found stronger wi-fi sites near us. As I write the situation has been corrected. Looking forward to your return visit.

Reviewer had an unpleasant stay for part of her visit to Gentle a Breeze. Unfortunately a pipe broke in the neighborhood...Not On Our Property! However, it resulted in foul odor and water build up at times next door! Barbados Water Authority was called in and problem was traced to their depot of malfunctioning pump and broken pipe. To their credit they worked tirelessly....day and night! Businesses throughout the area were affected, as well as our staff. Guests were told if they found other accommodations we would reimburse for unused portion. One guest found other accommodations and moved. However, he continued to bring his small son back to Gentle Breeze to play because he enjoyed being there! Reviewer wanted a full refund, she did not look for other accommodations, took over another more expensive apartment without authorization, then called to say all was better. After other guest moved she became angry writing threatening and accusatory emails..despite the fact she has been offered to be "comped" on any future visit and if compensation forthcoming from BWA she certainly would be included! Since I do not speak French, perhaps there was some misunderstanding on both ends. I am not "irresponsible!" Stuff happens..you try to resolve...the numerous positive reviews should certainly be taken into consideration. Thankful to Trip Advisor for giving us an opportunity to hear our side. Please note the situation has been resolved and has remained so as guests are moving in. Apologies to reviewer for my not having "known" the situation was going to occur during her visit.
