Our family of five will be visiting Barbados next March. The original plan was to stay at Tamarind but the prices jumped so we talked about it and rather than go to a different island, we're going to try a villa. I've spent the better part of two days reviewing different ones on agency sites as well as Homeaway and VRBO. I'm totally confused because listings are doubled up on different sites. I have reached out to a few and people have been very helpful. I'm now torn between two locations:
1. Glitter Bay
2. Mahogany Bay
The kids are between 10 and 16. They love water activities so they'll want to paddle board, kayak, jet ski and try water skiing. Hubbie and I love to laze at the beach and go on day excursions with the kids (probably one water excursion to visit turtles and a land one that will bring us around the island). It'd be nice if there was a place we could buy a drink or two while on the beach. We don't plan to drive so we'll be limited to walking, buses and taxis. I don't plan on cooking. Hubbie may bbq, but not guaranteed. We plan to visit local restaurants for dinner and find something fast on the beach for lunch.
Between these locations, which would you choose?
