“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful stay. Location is perfect, the beach is glorious, sea clear and calm. The villa's plunge pool was perfect for cooling off, and the main pool was scarcely in use by anyone else. The villa was clean and well appointed, with nice touches like leaving insect repellent in each of the rooms.

Our housekeeper Coreen was friendly and accommodating - she cleared up after our kids and gave us clean towels every day. Our cook Alice was a magician - turned basic ingredients into wonderful food. We ate well every day - chicken, mahi mahi, marlin, pancakes, cakes and pies. Faultless.

Even the daily jaunt to the supermarket was fun - getting the 'reggae' bus outside the villa every day, supermarket was large and well stocked. Food is expensive in Barbados but so much better value buying in and having Alice cook than going to restaurants. Our kids are 18, 15, 13 and 8 and they all had a wonderful stay.

We'd definitely go back again.

Management Response

The transport board here in Barbados does provide some entertaining rides! It can truly be a 'local" experience to ride the mini buses....we are so pleased that you ventured out and "braved the music"! Merlin Bay is a great spot for a family holiday and we are so pleased that it suited you well. Our reservations team has a knack for matching location recommendations to family needs - and they certainly scored high points for steering you towards Hibiscus. Thank you for choosing a Blue Sky Luxury villa for your holiday experience and we look forward to being of service again in the future.
