... always we must have fried fish.
You'd think by now we'd be better at planning and keeping the shopping to a minimum as we usually cook enough for at least twice as many people. But you know us, we can't help ourselves.
When we get back the cooking starts in earnest.
Just to keep us going until dinner we cook patties and fish cakes. I also prepare the saltfish for tomorrow breakfast. Thank goodness ...
DAY 46 ….. March 3rd ……. Bridgetown, Barbados
We had toured the whole island on a previous visit but never spent time in the Capital ... so as it was Sunday and there was 'no traffic' we took the opportunity to stroll around …. and had a most enjoyable time.
Also made time a call to the new parents from ...
... t keen but Claire liked it. Worth a try though. While we were sipping our coconut another Brit asked the guy on the stall how much a coconut was, he was outraged at $2.50 and walked away, that works out at about 75p scandalous!!!
From Bridgetown we drove over to the airport for our supersonic experience. They have one of the Concordes here and have guided tours. We didn’t know exactly what to expect but it was really good. ...
... safety reasons, as the capstan and chains and other potential hazards are situated there. It made you want to do what Kate Winslet did in the movie Titanic. :-)
It was so pleasant at the pool deck that we went back to our cabin and changed into our swimming things, before applying the Factor 30 sun tan lotion. Normally I would only use a factor 8 or 10, but we were heading closer to the Equator all the time, and with the sea reflecting ...
... I hate planning. I like my trips to be relaxed and without rules. Ok, the only rules being my vacation, my rules. So my tentative plan was to visit Galway, Cork and Killarny. Any specifics were to be figured out when I was there.
The day I was supposed to leave, I got a message from my friend, M, who told me about a volcano eruption in Iceland. He said most flights in Ireland were cancelled. Thinking he was kidding, I made a joke ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Barbados Beach Club Christ Church
Hated it !!
Having stayed on the West Coast the previous year I was interested to see what this resort would be like when I stayed here in April 2002.
The staff were rude and sullen, especially the main restaurant staff and no-one went out of their way to help. The rooms were basic, nothing to write home about and whilst requesting a pool view we were given a view of the back and beyond. The food in the other restaurants was varied and very nice but this is the only nice thing I can say really.
We paid full brochure price for this holiday, which was a mistake and has dimmed my memories of this gorgeous island - I would never stay on this part of the Island again.
On arival and during are short stay the staff were unfriendly,
A great value with terrific staff
Our family (two adults, four children) had a great time. The staff was very helpful, particulaly Kay in Guest Relations and Damien, who was great at organizing activities. The pool and beach were fine. We did not do the all inclusive package, but given the high price of resturaunts in Barbados, I probably would the next time. I would recommend this facility.
My companion and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Barbados Beach Club late April 2003 - it was better than what I had thought it would be. Food must have been okay as I put on weight during our one week stay. Pool was clean and adequate; swimming off the beach was good unless you were a poor swimmer. Enjoyed most of the entertainment except for the last night of our stay. Next time we go back we'll make sure we're not facing poolside - nothing worse than a bunch drunks trying to sing to Kareoke at 11:30 p.m.The staff? All were good, right from the start, particularly the front end people. Always helpful with solutions to any problems you thought you might have. I'd recommend this place to any of our friends. And, yes, we'll be returning.
Can't Wait to come back to this beautiful place!!!
Just got back from 2 fantastic weeks at the Beach Club with my boyfriend - fiance now as we are engaged!!! This hotel is lovely. The staff are so helpful and the location is fantastic. If you want nearby action, its all there. If you want to just chill out the hotel offers everything. The Cliff is a must!!! (Up the west coast) for a special dining experience. The people so friendly, beaches beautiful, loved the island and am still smiling now! Will not be my last visit there!!!
My wife and myself went down to get married, we had an amazing time and brought home many memories. The staff are great, the food is great and the locals are great. Nice scenery and gorgous beaches. I have nothing negative to say as the both of us had smiles the entire time, our first time on Barbados won't be our last and the Beach Club is where we will stay again.
My girlfriend I with our two sons stayed here for a fortnight in May 2002.
My husband and I just got back from a 7 night cruise and 7 night stay holiday in Barbados. The Barbados Beach Club was our allocated on arrival hotel for the second week.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay but if you're looking for super luxury - this isn't it. It is very clean however and the food is alright. I found the people to be sort of rude at times and for those who like to go to be before 12:00am, forget it because they have music, bands, etc...by the pool until then EVERY NIGHT. I got frustrated by this point. You absolutely can't keep food in your room either because even though the room is immaculate - ants seem to come from no where. They are super aggressive. But I think thats part of being on the island. Over all it was a nice place.
My wife and I have just spent 2 weeks at this resort This was oue 4th return visit to the Barbados Beach club. So,that alone speaks for itself,the food was excellent.The searocks Restaurant is absolutley first class.
The owner Felix is a most charming man,always ready to cater for your liking.The staff are so kind and friendly,and I call Kay from guest services A Princess.so kind, so helpful.All in all a great hotel in a fatastic location.
See you all there in the New Year.
