We enjoyed our stay at Glitter Bay and would return. We rented a 1 bedroom condo and had a fold-up bed added for our daughter. The condos are clean, nicely furnished and the kitchen is well stocked if you want to make some of your meals. The best features include very helpful and friendly staff, the beautiful beach, the grounds... More

This is one of those reviews that I don't want to write to keep it a secret! This place is brilliant if you want a self catering option on a fabulous beach with good restaurants close by. It doesn't have a kids club but kids so happy we didn't need it and there is very reasonable babysitting so we were... More

Its a small privately owned complex so will never be full as not all the apartments are let out at any one time - thats a good thing! Its quiet, up-market and well located for Hometown (just a 5 mins bus ride or a 30 min walk if you fancy it). The manager Tanya is one of the nicest people... More

This was our first trip to Barbados and Glitter Bay exceeded all expectations. We stayed in Twin Palms (411) and it did not disappoint in any way. The appartment was immaculate and provided everything you could want during a holiday and more. Our housekeeper Chauntel came in 6 days a week and kept the place spotless. Our agents Anoushka/Christina were... More

We are currently on a three week holiday in Barbados. We have one week at the Glitter Bay apartments. It is really lovely here, well managed and with a beautiful, clean beach just 80 feet away from our large ground floor terrace. The staff are lovely. The only drawback is Holetown, the nearest town and a bit of a dump,... More

“Ask for a high room as you will get a view of the beach as well as the excellent gardens. 214 Calypso was fine, but there is one further floor above.”
