Bajan, The Island of Eternal Summer dreams in Barbados

Bajan, The Island of Eternal Summer dreams with DWVC   by Keith Martin

Barbados is a relatively flat island rising west to east in a series of terraces to its highest point Mount Hillaby, which is 1100ft. On the western side of the island, the sea is relatively calm. However, on the eastern side where the waves roll in from the Atlantic the coast is much more rugged. This is a perfect choice for a Caribbean family vacation or a special island holiday. Noted also for its excellent scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing and boat cruises at its best. There is easy access to horseback riding, tennis, and special rate golf.
The island has one airport, Grantley Adams International which is a thirty (30) minute drive from the capital, Bridgetown. Barbados is serviced by a number of international airlines including Air Canada, American Airlines, British Airways, Air Jamaica, BWIA International and Virgin Atlantic. Barbados, with over 900 miles of paved roads, is considered to have one of the best systems of roads in the Caribbean.

Members of Designer Way Vacation Club (DWVC) can get flights for two adults from London Gatwick and two weeks stay at the Coconut Court Beach Hotel in a oceanfront room in May for just £1,395 all in. Children under sixteen (16) can also stay in the accommodation for free when accompanied by two adults.

Non members can also stay at this resort by booking through Virgin Holidays or Expedia but would be paying £500 or £453.56 (around 35%) more!

Coconut Court Beach Hotel, family owned and operated for over twenty (20) years offers guests a delightful setting and an equally pleasing and relaxed atmosphere. The hotel is situated on a lovely sandy beach overlooking the tranquil turquoise waters of the Carribean Sea and is centrally located on the lower south coast of Barbados, one and a half miles from the capital Bridgetown and two miles from St. Lawrence Gap. There are an excellent choice of bars, restaurants, and night-clubs nearby. All the rooms command spectacular ocean views. Needhams Point is just a short ten minutes walk from the Coconut Court Beach Hotel. A beautiful white coral sandy beach awaits guests, with turquoise sea.

Right on the beach is The Deck Restaurant and Bar open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7:30am to 11pm. There are also happy hours at the main bar twice a day (except Tuesday).

The hotel features 82 tastefully furnished rooms, most of which have been completely refurbished since September 2005 and now also include cable television, king size beds or twin beds, irons and ironing boards, extending lighted bathroom mirrors, hairdryers and have private ocean view balconies. All rooms (except studios which have kitchens) are equipped with microwaves, refrigerators, toasters, electric kettles, AM/FM radios and private showers. They can accommodate two (2) to (3) persons depending on category.

Leisure facilities include swimming pool, children’s wading pool, Jacuzzi, beach volleyball, table tennis and pool tables. There are gift shop, children’s activities coordinator and concierge at the hotel. There is also golf, tennis, squash, horse racing, cricket, football, windsurfing, water sports, surfing, diving and yoga nearby.
