At the hotel
Exercise room, massage room, free WiFi by the pool and in reception. In rooms: four-poster beds, TV, DVD/CD player, full kitchen (fridge, oven, and microwave; two- and three-bedroom suites have dishwashers, Vineyard suites have washer/dryers).
The one-and two-bedroom suites overlooking the little pool encompass two floors and a terrace, all decorated in inimitably Caribbean greens and yellows, and offer as sublime sense of privacy for couples seeking escape. The newer Vineyard suites at the top of Little Good Harbour are more geared to families, with high spec kitchens, spacious showers and large tiled verandas. The most historic rooms are in the three-bedroom Fort Suite, part of the original Fort Rupert building on the beachfront, where you can fall asleep to the sound of the sea.
The hotel has two pools; one is a small, Romanesque affair adorned with greenery; the other is much larger, lined with slick grey slate and flanked with cushioned wicker loungers.
If you plan to explore Barbados, a driver’s licence is an essential – Little Good Harbour is relatively remote. Snorkelling gear will help you make the most of the coast.
Non-smoking throughout. You can pre-order grocery packs if you’re keen to cook for yourself.
Welcome throughout the year – under-12s stay free on rollaway beds. Babysitting can be arranged locally, for $10 an hour, and the restaurant kitchens have a flexible attitude to child-friendly cooking.
