          Hi Glitter Bay, I stayed at the hotel several years ago when I was working in Trinidad. In Jan 2017 my wife and I are arriving in Barbados on a cruise ship (P&O Ventura) and wondered if we can visit the hotel and use the excellent facilities and have access to the lovely beach without us being guests at the hotel? Would we be able to lunch and drinks? Many thanks.

          This listing is duplicated - listed as Glitter Bay AND Glitter Bay Suites. I want to leave an (excellent) report following my stay, but the two listings should be amalgamated first. In addition, the hotel should be listed under Holetown, rather than Porters, so that you would receive many more viewings. I nearly missed this hotel on trip advisor as it did not come up under Holetown. Thanks
