What Past Guests Are Saying
Stayed at Bon Vivant Feb 22-27. The poolside dinners prepared by Esma and Maureen and served by Haldon were wonderful, relaxing and a great way to end the day. The beach is next to the Sandy Lane Hotel's beach. It is a quiet beach even in the high season. It has all the activities for children i.e. basketball court, tennis court, pool, trampoline, you name it and it is on the premise.
We loved our stay and are having our family reunion of 12 adults and 8 grandchildren there this summer. looking forward to a great time.
Best villa we have ever stayed at!
8 couples stayed at Bon vivant for a week of relaxation and pampering. We have rented spectacular villas around the world, and this one was by far, the best! The pictures do not do it justice. The sprawling grounds accommodated everyone with their own bedrooms and space for quiet times, and also had plenty of space for us to lounge together and eat meals. The amenities are unheard of...full size tennis, basketball, racquetball courts, two pool tables, ping pong, shuffleboard, chess, poker, huge swimming pool and separate hot tub...the list goes on and on. It was literally a 5 minute walk to one of the most beautiful and calm beaches we have ever seen. The villa's best amenity, however, is the staff. They are very professional and attentive, without being intrusive. We were pampered with top notch meals served whenever we wanted and fresh drinks served up poolside! Haldon even brought appetizers and wine down to the beach at sunset one night for us! Esma made sure everything ran smoothly, and like magic, whatever we asked for, it appeared! What a special trip in a most special place! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
South Kingstown, Rhode Island
Every year our company has an incentive trip. this year we decided to do something a little different and stay at a Villa in Barbados. I have been on many vacations and can honestly tell you this was absolutly perfect. we had a total of 18 guests and everyone had a terrific time. from the accomodations to the staff to the food. everything was great.
i am already trying to schedule a trip back next year with my family.
i would highly recommend it to anyone...
Esma and her staff are the best!
It was wonderful! Esma and her staff are the best. The food was fantastic, as was the rum punch! The layout of the villa is particularly nice and spread out with plenty to do if you're not a beach person, which I'm not, but was for that week. Has a pool, hot tub, shuffleboard, basketball, tennis and racquetball courts. It's a 5-minute walk to the beach. The beach is adjacent to the Sandy Lane Hotel beach and was, in my opinion, nicer that the hotel's. Of course, no one wanted to leave.
We went with a large group, 9 couples, and had the best time, even brought in a steel drum band one night! I would highly recommend the villa to anyone.
We had a fabulous vacation!
Bon Vivant was a wonderful house for our group. We had 3 families with children that ranged in age from 15- 20. The staff and food were exceptional! They had something for all ages with outside ping pong, shuffle board, pool and hot tub to name a few. The house is within easy walking distance to the beach at Sandy Lane where they have chairs for you at the owner's club. Esma and her staff took very good care of us. I would highly recommend this house to any large family or group. The house was large enough for everyone to spread out and "do their own thing"
The Best Family vacation ever!
The hospitality and accommodations at Bon Vivant are second to none! We had the best family vacation we have ever had and the 19 members of my family (10 adults and 9 children) have been travelling together each December for the the past 10 years. In the past our family has travelled to all-inclusives and always found them lacking, either in the accommodations. or the fact that they are crowded, but most often with the mediocre food. Bon Vivant was like heaven on earth and a vacation like we had never had before - we had all the benefits of an all-inclusive but it was so, so much more - activities (swimming, tennis, trampoline, basket ball, beach, pool table, volley ball +++) with no crowds, gorgeous accommodations, maid service, the kindest staff, and exquisite gourmet meals prepared for us. It exceeded all of our expectations and we all left looking forward to returning again next year...in 10 years we have never returned to a place a second time...for this discerning crowd Bon Vivant is the only place that measures up!
Thanks BVV, can't wait to see you again in December!
An Extraordinary Vacation Experience!
We had the pleasure of vacationing at Bon Vivant Villa for a week in December with our extended family. There were 19 of us, ranging in age from 2 years to late 60's. There was indeed something for everyone. Trampoline, Tennis, swimming, the beach and of course the beloved racket ball court, which was transformed into a dance studio by our young ones for nightly performances. The property is beautiful and well maintained, as are the accommodations. We especially loved the outdoor showers.
The Staff at BVV is outstanding. Esma and her delightful crew made every effort to make us feel at home and relaxed during our stay. Meals were prepared with a sophisticated style that continued to tempt our culinary palates.
Bon Vivant provided the perfect setting for our family to spend intimate time together. We will cherish our memories and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
Whitaker 60th birthday party week
what a place to celebrate a 60th birthday
Bringing 17 people together for the 1st time from the UK, the us and Canada to celebrate was quite an undertaking.
Esma and the staff at BVV made the whole stay relaxing, stress-free and family-like. The food (we had all meals at the villa) was sublime and varied. The bedrooms were quite luxurious and the outdoor showers in most suites were memorable! The ambiance and cocktails around the pool were not to be missed. There were also lots of activities at the villa - shuffleboard, racquetball, bocce ball courts as well as tennis - whew!
We can't wait to return with others for future get-togethers...
Paradise found !
"My wife and I had the pleasure of being cared for at your wonderful Barbados villa. We spent many hours relaxing and unwinding in your home. The villa is beautiful. The staff is more than perfect. The food was spectacular, the service and housekeeping were beyond reproach. Everyone on the staff went out of their way to provide for us, and made us feel like family Our only regret - we had only one week."
My husband and I had a fantastic vacation for a week in april at Bon Vivant Villa with 8 other couples. Everything was wonderful...from our organizing of the vacation with Caroline, the villa, our rooms, the staff, the food, the weather...all perfect! Looking forward to a return visit. Thank you for the wonderful memories! Diane~ Delaware
What an incredible experience. From the moment we arrived , we were in another world. Bon vivant Villa exceeded our expectations. My family and I were able to relax together whilst also enjoying all the endless activities. The villa is designed with a tranquil , festive approach giving us no reason to ever leave. My worldy mother expressed it was the best experience in her life. My favorite part was the glorious pool and cocktail hour. We truly enjoyed ever moment and hope to be back very soon. Thank you for a flawless experience.
