From the extremely convenient location to the exquisite gardens and beautifully laid out apartments Shades delivered all we had expected after having read so many glowing reviews. We could not have been more comfortable or felt more at home. Many thanks to Jacquie and Errol for their gracious hospitality.

Location wise, you don't get much better. We met many people at the beach who travelled every day to get to the beach we were at. Paynes Bay can be very expensive, but shades is set back, just slightly (5 minute slow walk) from the beach so you get good value for money. The apartments are spacious and tastefully decorated....

This is a truly lovely place to spend your time in Barbados! Our flight was delayed and we didn't arrive until after midnight, yet Jacqui was calm, welcoming and not bothered by the late hour. The location is ideal - close to the beach, close to the grocery store, and right off a main road but still in a quiet...

Following a recent two week stay at Shades we have promptly booked to return again in October 2012. The location of Shades apartments was fantastic - beautiful Paynes Beach, bus stop to / from Bridgeton and Holeton a two min stroll down the road. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend friends to stay there. The apartments are spotless and extremely well...

A wonderful appartment with a nice pool. Exactly what you need if you want to avoid the big hotels. The design is such that you can sit on your patio without anyone overlooking you, and it is fitted out with modern equipment. On arrival Jacqui met us and after unpacking drove us to the supermarket - what a good service!...

First let me describe the nervous start, then the fantastic holiday! (And it was fantastic, truly) Several emails, a few phone calls, a couple of credit card transactions and we thought we were (finally!) all set to enjoy a relaxing holiday in this highly-rated, highly-reviewed place... but when we turned up at the airport we found there was no car...

We had an absolutely lovely stay at Shades. The accommodation was excellent, and Jacqui Lee, the manager, was friendly and helpful. All in all, we had a most relaxing vacation -- Shades was like a home away from home. We will definitely stay there again, when we are next in Barbados. Anita and Madhav

My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Barbados! We were greeted by the lovely Jacqui who was a great host! She showed us around the complex and even took us shopping at a local supermarket. She had good advice and was very helpful. Our most fun day was taking a day cruise she set up for us. We...
