Barbados Hotel, Resort & Villa Reviews Reviews
Peach and Quiet 03/22/2004
Reviewers Rating: Excellent
If you’re seeking a quiet haven from civilization while remaining very much civilized, you should consider a stay at the Peach and Quiet. Our stay in late October 2003 was one of the most serene and yet most affordable trips we’ve had in years.
We felt like honored guests of Adrian and Margaret Loveridge’s four-acre piece of heaven. The Loveridges seem have an almost preternatural instinct about the needs of each guest. When we wanted to enjoy the view of the ocean and do a bit of snorkeling, it seemed as if the view and the natural pool were all our own. But when we wanted explore and learn about Barbados, Margaret scheduled everything we needed (even taking care to help us schedule our excursions to avoid sunburn). And Adrian was a wealth of history and information about the country. A traditional beach is just a five-minute walk, and that meant we could get there quickly, but there weren’t loads of other tourists crowding us.
The honor bar is a nice touch for those who prefer not to have a costumed waiter serving $10 drinks. Just mix them yourself, mark the sheet, and you’ve paid little more for a cocktail than you would in your own home. The meals were wonderful and always included a vegetarian option.
The overall property and rooms are spacious and elegantly spare in a tropical way. We found the scents of frangipani trees and handmade soaps enticing our senses rather than the blare of a radio, television, or telephone. There are even small collections of books in each room which prompted during our stay a literary discussion at dinner with other guests. (Bonus for us: no children are allowed at the Peach.)
We took advantage of the Summer Breeze package which included two days car rental, breakfast every day, several dinners, a snorkel tour, and dinner at Carambola, one of the island’s best restaurants. It was an incredible deal by any standards, but we felt like we were living like kings on usually-expensive Barbados.
If you want roaring air conditioning, a screaming “social director” leading a limbo line, and a tacked-on charge for every little thing, go to one of the big resorts on the West Coast. Or better yet, just go to Orlando. If you want to chill out and enjoy true island life, consider Peach and Quiet.
