Caribbean, Bermuda & Mexico / Barbados

Jessica Read, Client Experience Team Manager at Carrier

"I’ve been visiting Barbados on family holidays since the age of four – this island has provided me with a lifetime of memories and truly feels like my home away from home, with friendly locals and a safe atmosphere that make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive. Indulging in Bajan culinary delights is my favourite pastime when visiting. From the delectable flying fish at Champers to the speciality dish cou-cou at Brown Sugar, the food is as diverse as the people. You can’t afford to miss the Friday Fish Fry at Oistins, for fresh grilled swordfish and lobster mixed with infectious street music, where you can dance the night away. Aside from the food, I love admiring the local history and architecture of St. Nicholas Abbey where you can explore the rum distillery and sample some of the local spirit. If you like to hit the waves, a visit to the east coast is a prerequisite for any surfer – championships are held there annually."

Review /"I loved the fresh, clean design of the suites."
