... they would never be there when we arrived but was proven wrong, thankfully. A lot of waiting about in airports today. Nothing much of interest to report. We were surprised that we only did one security check at Denver and then no more at Miami, we just walked off one plane and through the terminal to the next gate. Had some half decent coffee at Cafe Versailles. Watched one movie - Las Vegas - with ...

It was a game of tag. I arrive to stay with mum while Omara hops in the taxi with Keisha heading back to Holetown for her massage appointment.

Once we were unpacked we began exploring the ship. We ended up at the aft portion of the lido deck. That is where we chose to have lunch. After lunch and some soft-serve ice cream, we continued our exploration.
Our mandatory safety briefing was at 16:00 in the ship's ...
... We enjoyed some breakfast prosecco and livened up the morning orange juice with a few generous shots of vodka, whilst relaxing and waiting in excited anticipation for the holiday to come.
Eventually the flight was called and we boarded the A330 Airbus which would take us to Bridgetown, Barbados. It always reminds me of that 1974 "Typically Tropical" song that goes like this:
Whoa! I'm going to Barbados
... think if they knew they were snorkeling in the middle of ocean worms? LOL.
Free rum (I'm getting to like this stuff) on the beach, music, dancing etc (an older crowd so not crazy or out of hand), then back to the ship. All good things have to come to an end. I only realized it when boarding my ship when I discovered my iPhone missing :-( I have to say I'm pretty crushed. It was one thing when I lost the last one (that was my fault), but this just feels bad. *&$%#

Historical Traveler Reviews Coral Mist Beach Hotel Worthing
We just returned from a week at Coral Mist. Having never stayed on this part of the south coast before, we were completely unprepared for the tremendous noise of the waves breaking right in front of the hotel. If you are a light sleeper, take the strongest earplugs you can find, you'll need them because the noise is magnified at night.
Coral Mist is no Mystery
Spent a week in Barbados at the Coral Mist March 2-9 2005. I had phoned them a few times to varify that the hotel was oceanfront, elevator was available, rooms would be clean. I was completely satisfied. All rooms have a complete kitchen. Maid service is thorough. Beach is quiet. An easy walk to the gap 10 minutes. Two supermarkets moments away. Nicola and Lisa at the desk were always available for suggestions on activites and directions. Traveled to the west coast and all along the gap, and couldn't find a hotel that could compete with the Coral Mist. Indian Restaurant across the street was great, Mojo's for a cocktail was stumbling distance, Loster Alive is a must.
Great Hotel, Can't wait to go back
Stayed at the Coral Mist over Christmas and New Year for 18 nights. Had a ground floor one bedroom apartment. Lovely, clean brand new rooms, everything you needed, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, Iron etc. Maid service was excellent, really friendly reception staff. Only 3 steps to the beach, another 5 steps into the ocean. 10min walk to the gap or 2min drive. Recommend hiring a car, go to Oistins, go to the Cliff, East coast is stunning, you won't want to come back. Have been to Barbados 4 times now, this place is by far the best place we have stayed at. Highly reccomended.
Just returned from 2 weeks at the Coral Mist resort and have to say we were impressed, we stayed in a studio which has a fuly equipped kitchentte/AC/bathroom/balcony overlooking the sea - nice big powerful shower and gorgeous views of the beach and the aquamarine sea.
Self Catering hotel / apartments with everything you could possibly need (well apart from oven gloves!...but who is perfect?!). Our one bedroomed apartment had a large bedroom with ensuite bathroom, spacious living area with dining table, desk, tv with adjoining open plan kitchen and direct access to the balcony that looked directly out onto the ocean. Rooms were cleaned daily and there was tons of storage space. The views from the balcony were amazing and all apartments are roughly 10 metres from the beach! There is a small pool, however we didn't use this as the sea was crystal clear and very warm. The hotel provides sun loungers, kayaks and boogie boards for guests at no extra charge, a real bonus as you have to pay for this further down the beach.
Great hotel, excellent service
We just visited Barbados for the first time and did a fair amount of deliberating and research as to where to stay. Having read great reviews about Coral Mist we decided to go with it. We were not disappointed! The 2 bedroom apartment we booked was more than up to our expectations - good space with breathtaking views of the ocean. The reception staff extremely helpful and accommodating, the maids very thorough and friendly, the restaurant was small but served excellent food, great cocktails and were always very friendly and pleased to see us. The beach is by far the best that we came across and whilst we were there it was not too busy. We will certainly be returning in the future and can't recommend it enough.
My family have vacationed the past 7 years in Barbados, always the during the second half of March. I believe the Coral Mist Beach Hotel has one of the best loactions on the Island, with a soft sandy beach used by very few people and the ability to walk about one mile along the beach to the Gap.
We spend two weeks at the Coral Mist Hotel and were absolutely delighted with the place. I had read the first review on this site and felt a bit nervous that only one person had written a review, hence my addtion.
I have been to Barbados and 5 occasions and as the previous reviewer stated (thanks for the recommendation), this is one of the best apartment hotels I have stayed in, as stated it has been recently refurbished, which obviously helps. Let's hope they keep the standard up.
I recently spent five glorious days at Coral Mist Beach Hotel in Barbados in February 2004. As a frequent visitor to the island I had just about had my share of disappointing accommodations. Coral Mist was everything that I expected in an apartment hotel and more. The property is brand new having just opened in 2004 and is right on the beach. I reserved a One Bedroom Deluxe Unit which was practically the size of a two bedroom apartment. It comprised of a full size kitchen, living/dining room with patio, king size bedroom with satellite televison, private telephone, patio and a sun deck - More clean and well decorated space than I could ever expect and at a great price under $200 in high season. The outdoors of this property is equally pleasing - A quiet and uncrowded pool area, beautiful landscaping, a long stretch of Worthing Beach at your door and an array of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and other beaches in the immediate area. Public transportation is very accessible - just right outside. You must catch the beautiful sunset from your patio while sipping a cold Bajan rum punch and while walking the beach at night (you must do this) look up to see the stars - truly Paradise. I have found the only place that I would want to stay in Barbados and the staff was very accommodating before and during my stay. Congratulations to the management for a job very well done.
