This was our third trip to Barbados, but first time at Settlers Beach. It has about 22 bungalows & town houses on the beach, set among beautifully maintained tropical gardens. We stayed in a 2 bedroom town house which was very spacious & spotlessly clean. The house was very well equipped, including ample kitchen equipment, washer/dryer, clock radio in bedrooms ; there is no dishwasher or TV (although there is a TV & computer in the residents lounge, also free wi-fi throughout the complex). The bedrooms have air conditioning and there's a ceiling fan in living area. Plentiful towels, including beach towels changed daily. The staff were lovely - very friendly and couldn't do enough to help with any query or request. Just a few minutes walk away are the bars, restaurants and shops of Holetown. We didn't bother hiring a car as the bus stops were 2 minutes walk away & the frequent local buses are a cheap & convenient way to get round the island.
Spago's restaurant on site was disappointing - the food was ok but the staff (particularly at night when we dropped in for a sundowner on the terrace) were offhand & unwelcoming .The beach is small , but there are plenty of other beaches locally, some with beach bars & sunbeds for hire (all beaches in Barbados are freely accessible to the public). We would definitely return to Settlers Beach.
