Do Your Homework Before you Travel

One great thing about traveling is being able to meet other travelers to Barbados. It gives me the opportunity to ask them about their vacation experience and if they had been well informed about knowing where to stay and great things to do before they arrived.

Most times some of the responses truly amaze me and I realize there was a lack of vital information - information that could certainly have made the difference between a fantastic vacation and a disastrous one.

I hear things like “I didn’t know I could do that”, or “Never heard of those places; we thought we’d just play it by ear.”

Wrong move.


Here are just a few things that could happen if you don’t Know Where to Stay in Barbados:

  1. You arrive in Barbados and realize your accommodation does not, and cannot accommodate kids. You have 3 in tow.
  2. The hotel is beautiful but is located in a very remote location. The only entertainment at night is the whistling frogs and crickets, and someone inadvertently forgot to tell you that you’d need a rental car to get around.
  3. Conversely, the hotel is beautiful but there’s so much going on. There’s a lot of noise and activity (let’s say around 2:00am?) and you realize a lot of the guests are.. college students who just love to party. This was not part of your plan.
  4. It was supposed to be a romantic getaway for you and your partner. You arrive at the hotel and your room looks nothing like the pictures on the hotel’s website. You express your concern to the management and there is no recourse. “This is the room description and there’s nothing we can do about it”, they say.

These are all worst-case scenarios of course, and like me, I’m sure you want to scream just about now. And you haven’t even made the booking yet!

If you don’t quite know where to stay in Barbados, don’t leave things to chance. Knowing where to stay is conquering half the battle when selecting your destination. It can surely make the difference between a great vacation and the worst vacation experience you’ve ever had so plan ahead.
