Overall our vacation was wonderful, we loved Barbados and thoroughly enjoyed being in a villa rather than a resort. Ocean view villa was lovely with exquisite views. The villa while comfortable and certainly adequate for our needs could do with some renovation - particularly the bathrooms and kitchen - for example there was rust in some of the toilets and baths and the plumbing was slow and the bathrooms are a little dated. The appliances in the kitchen were old and in poor working order (stove, toaster over, toaster). This is certainly unfair to the cook. The staff were very kind and helpful and looked after us very well. Joan the cook was open to make anything we needed but is a basic cook and certainly knew nothing of the menu's we had been sent prior to our trip. We felt that was a quite misleading. However, in the end it did not impact our overall enjoyment. - Jennifer K., Quebec, Canada

We enjoyed our villa at Merlin Bay, we love Barbados! Only negative thing to say about our villa is that I would not recommend for families with baby or toddler as there are many steps throughout the unit and open staircases. In Barbados there are no sidewalks so it is difficult to go for walks. - Sarah R., Alberta, Canada
