Having stayed at the Royal Pavillion last year, and loved it, we rebooked for this year, but decided to cancel in December, as the price had gone up to $1,000 per night (exclusive) was crazy, particularly in the current climate). A good friend suggeted that we look at Glitter Bay and rent an apartment for the 10 days in mid...

This was the first holiday we have ever had in an appartment rather than in a hotel. We eat out most of the time we are on holiday, very rarely venturing in to hotel restaurants so we were happy to go somewhere without it's own dining set up. We stayed in Suite 305, which has one bedroom, bathroom, a kitchen,...

We have just returned from the most idyllic holiday staying at 203 Glitter Bay (Ocean Blue). To say that the apartment is in the best spot on the island, with the best beach, has the best interior decoration and is perhaps one of the best places we have ever stayed, would not be an overstatement! As we said to a...

After a long month of sales trips around Europe, I thought going to Barbados for work would be the worst possible thing to happen but all I can say thank you to Glitter Bay as the hotel made my stay delightful and I was so happy when I left and left a refreshed man. The grounds were amazing and the...

Glitter bay is an excellent location - just 3 or 4 minutes drive from Holetown on one of the best beaches on the island. The great thing about Glitter Bay is that you get the amenities of a hotel (large pool, managed beach, bar) without all the formality and the huge quantities of food! We stayed at apartment 304 which...

I have just returned from my stay at 309 in Glitter Bay and I am already planing a return trip with my partner. Working long hours through out the year, and traveling quite extensively as well, Glitter Bay is the one place I feel I can get actually get under the radar from the bustle of life, switch off and...

This three bedroom ground floor apartment is so perfect for our family - we have 4 children under 12 and it is spacious and has a huge, and I do mean, huge liviing area and kitchen. The breakfast bar seats the four young ones perfectly! The kitchen has all you need to whip up a meal but there are some...

We loved this place!!! We where there at the first time 2004. We heard they refurbished the hotel 2005 so it´s probably more modern now. The hotel location is next to the fairmont Royal Pavilion hotel and I believe it´s the same owner. For us the hotel staff was lovely and friendly and made you feel special. The breakfast was...

Glitter Bay gave us basically everything we were looking for and expecting. We wanted a condo property to accomodate 2 couples and one child but also wanted a few 'resort' facilities such as a pool, beach bar, watersports etc. We were very happy with our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo. We stayed in Penthouse 411. It was situated near the...

Eternity is one of the rental apartments on the Glitter Bay resort, in Barbados. It is the corner unit on the second floor, overlooking the beach, with two large patio doors that create a sense of being outside, even when in!. We booked through Bajan Services, who took good care of the arrangments and who responded speedily to any questions...
