  1. Surprisingly this was pretty much my 50th birthday activities. Stayed at Little Arches near Enterprise Beach and had the pleasure of spending an afternoon snorkeling and swimming among the turtles aboard the Silver Moon. Visited the Abbey and have my own personalized bottle of St Nicholas Abbey Rum. Our unforgettable dinner at The Cliff was two years prior during our wedding/honeymoon in Barbados. I have nothing but very fond memories of our trips to Barbados and hope to visit many more times.

  2. Did Barbados … Waves Resort for my 40th. Opted for Daphne’s Restaurant as a nod to my mother who is called Daphne cannot make comparisons to the cliff because I’ve not been there but Daphne’s was excellent. Other must do’s … Oistins, 4×4 tour and mount gay cocktail making. Don’t waste money on the tour operators catamaran trips to the turtles, many resorts have their own smaller cats that are far better.

  3. We are currently staying in Barbados.It is a nice island but not the best by far!Holetown is the “nicest” area – unless you want to be with the AI mob in St Lawrence Gap.Apart from high season which basically is Christmas and Easter,it is pretty quiet.There are a handful of decent beach bars but all are relatively quiet after 10pm.
    As for “world class food” I have to disagree,granted The Cliff does have amazing views but the menu is dated and has not changed for 15years.We had a hideous lunch at Lone Star the club sandwich more akin to a doorstep of bloomer bread – NONE of the restaurants would last very long in central London and I find it quite incredible how people say otherwise,perhaps it’s because they are on holiday!
