This was our first trip to Barbados and we stayed in a nicely appointed one-bedroom condominium for seven days. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly Tanya, the General Manager, and Barbara our housekeeper. A nice and unexpected surprise was that the refrigerator was stocked with juices, milk, bottled water, cereal, grapes, eggs, bread and butter to help us get...

Had a great time a glitter bay with our 2 girls. 8 and 10 years old. Marilil and Joe take care of all needs. Duncan and the guys there make you feel so welcome. Lovely vibe, tasteful apartments with daily cleaner who was superb. we really had a dream Christmas holiday. We'll defiantly re-book.

Currently staying in a lovely 1 bedroomed apartment at Glitter Bay - booked with Royal Glitter Bay villas. The beach is excellent with easy access to watersports if you feel inclined! Watching the beautiful sunsets from the beach bar with a rum cooler made by the friendly staff has become one of our favourite past-times. The apartment is immaculate and...

We were recommended Glitter Bay by some very fussy friends and this did not disappoint. The properties are situated on one of the very best beaches in Barbados. Our apartment was spacious and easy with maid service 6 days a week. There is a charming beach bar which also serves light lunches - perfect for our days on the beach....

My husband, his brother and I stayed at Glitter Bay in July. I booked the trip through Kerri at Barbados Dream Villas. She was so helpful from beginning to end!

We stayed in #207 in May and had a great experience. This unit is very well maintained, clean, and everything functions as you expect. The balcony area is fantastic to just sit and be still or read with gorgeous tropical gardens below. My only tiny issue was that the bed was rather firm for our taste but we will come...

Glitter Bay has been one of our favorite places to stay in Barbados, and we have checked out a number of places over our 15 visits to the island. The location and beach are great, but the apartments are all individually owned, and all are NOT of the same standard, standards vary greatly so be sure to ask lots of...
