For anyone searching last minute flights to Barbados for Crop Over, bad news...Nurse Karen Airlines is booked solid! I'm joking, but if your only hangup is where to stay, might I make a suggestion?
It might be smart to check out, the The Palms Resort:
Deluxe, affordable accommodation in Barbados
Nestled in an oasis of the resort area of Sunset Crest, as the name suggests, are the two sister properties Halcyon Palm and Travellers Palm Apartment Hotels.
These intimate and cosy accommodations, although tucked away in a quiet corner of this busy West Coast resort town, is within walking distance of every activity your mind can imagine.
Great for families, couple and singles looking for an affordable Barbados island holiday.
When I was in Barbados two weeks ago, I stayed in a cool guest apartment on the West Coast, in St. James. The great thing about it, apart from being close to the main road, and within walking distance of shopping and the beach, is that it was an apartment!
I know first-hand how expensive it can be to travel for a major festival. When events are costing you anywhere from US $15 to $150, it's great to have your own oven, microwave and FRIDGE!! **cough, cough**. A girl needs to keep her ENERGY DRINKS cold, you know!
When I travel, even to work, it's a real luxury to have a space with a living room for entertaining or meetings. Being a city girl, with a country heart, the serenity of well manicured gardens, and a peacful tucked away locale is the perfect complement to a day and night of raucus partying.
Plus, a cool refreshing dip in the pool always relaxes my tired muscles, so I can get out there to catch all the action the next day!
So please, check out the Palms Resort online
Make a booking, and tell them Nurse Karen sent ya!
Special thanks to ALT Entertainment, Gillian, The Palms Resort, Corey Graham 2.0, Noise Productions Ltd, Stan and everyone else who made my trip to Barbados possible!
Have a safe and happy Crop Over 2009!
Love and Soca,
Crop Over 2010
