This was our first visit to Barbados and we spent just over two weeks at Lemon Arbour Studio. This was set in the grounds of Rockley Golf Course. The surroundings are beautifully kept with trees and colourful shrubs. We enjoyed watching the monkeys and the cheeky birds from our shady patio. The studio was very clean and well-equipped with everything you need to cook a simple meal. The bed was large and comfortable and there was a cupboard full of towels and extra linen. We especially appreciated the free laundry room with washers and dryers. We used the nearby pool area every morning and it was very quiet with plenty of loungers and seats. The nearby supermarket is well stocked and runs a courtesy bus. Great beaches are also a 10 minute walk away and we enjoyed using the local minibus taxis which run continually to Bridgetown or Oistins. The helpful management quickly turned up with a new toaster when the old one stopped working. This is a great place to stay although if you like night-life it's not for you. We will definitely return and fully recommend this good value accommodation.
We stay in this studio for 12 days,it is small but in all honesty we spent most of our time on the patio which was a great place to watch the monkeys passing by every morning .the kitchen has everything you need to prepare breakfast and lunch we never cooked a full meal but I am sure it would not of be a problem. The fridge freezer was brand new and when we asked if it would be possible to have a blender on Friday morning we were delighted when it was delivered on the Monday..
The bed was comfy and the housekeeper did a great job when she came in.
The pool is lovely and always had sunbeds we never used it much as we love the beach which is a 10 minute walk away . the laundry room was very handy.
We have never stay at Rockley before and we were pleased we gave it a try as we loved the location and the peace and quiet we had a hire car however everything was close by and didn't really need a car.
The only negative things we would say ,is that the whole studio could do with a good lick of paint I would personal redecorated from top to bottom there had been a leak at some point and although the leak had been repaired the damage which had been done was not and looked dreadful..We would also replace the curtains that let the light in and really were worn out .
We were going to rebook this apartment again for next year but the price has raised beyond what we where happy to pay for a studio so we are looking at another apartment on Rockley a one bedroom which will offer a little more room .
Had the price not jump up so much we would stay here again and certainly would of recommended it to family and friend.we were slightly disappointed .
I had a wonderful stay at 522 during Christmas and New Year. The studio Apartment was cosz, clean and well equipped with a great view of the golf course. The pool and deck were clean and comfortable . The resort is very central and close to many conveniences in the Rockley area. I will definitely recommend.
Stayed here for week and it was absolutely beautiful. The appartment was immaculately clean and had everything we needed for the week.
The location was ideal and within walking distance of many bars and shops.
It was brilliant having use of the swimming pull - we had it too ourselves most times we used it.
The onsite management were perfect and the collection of keys was very swift and hassle free.
Lastly, you can't argue with the price. We will definitely be back.
Had a great stay here! It's on the Rockley Golf course and so it's quiet all day and night...except for the crickets and whistling frogs!! The beach is close by, only a 10 minute walk, but if you don't feel like trekking down there, the pool is lovely too. The studio itself was pretty much everything we needed. We did some cooking, but mostly just ate easy stuff like sandwiches and crackers and cheese. Everything was clean and there were ample supplies of towels, sheets, and kitchen stuff. It was easy to get into Bridgetown, as there were bus stops everywhere! Also, there is a clubhouse restaurant/bar called Birdies about a 5 minute walk across the fairway that is friendly and does really good basic food all day. All in all, we would definitely stay here again!
