It is so beautiful here at the moment, the weather is good and not many people. Alleynes Bay is just what you imagine a beach in a tropical paradise should be like, Royal Pavillion is still closed and the beach is nearly empty. There are a few people at Glitter Bay and that is about it. Ramshackles is still closed, Lone Star is a work in progress but Ju Ju's is open. We had lunch at Ju Ju's today and had the most delicious red snapper, it was the best fish I have had in a long time.

It is great to be back in Barbados, to me it is one of the most special places in the world.

Sounds like heaven Bertha, we must try Ju Ju's on our next visit.

Enjoy the peace while you can, when the chap from Southampton arrives it will be shattered.... :lol:

How lovely to be on a virtually deserted Alleynes Bay, looking out of my office window at grey skies and heavy rain I am very jealous! Enjoy!

I didn't realize that Royal Pavillion was closed. I would assume & hope because of renovations. Several years ago plus, they had a great jazz trio in the bar, which I always enjoyed. Their beach picture is saved as my desktop backdrop, so I get that great feeling when I'm at my desk. Although I've never stayed at Royal Pavillion, I've dined there several times.

Apparently Ramshackles are only open on Fridays through to Mondays at the moment. I am going to go down there when I arrive to find out their future opening times during October/November.

Jerry I think Royal Pavilion normally closes until mid October, they use this time for staff holidays, renovations etc.

Yes they are doing refurbishment work Sue, I think they have been doing a programme of upgrades over the last few years or so. I think that is a lovely property, like you Jerry I have never stopped there but enjoyed eating there. I think if I were going to choose a hotel rather than an apartment and I didn't have the Sandy Lane $$$$'s that would be very high on my list. The beach is so gorgeous there.

Have a fab trip Lesley!

Royal Pavilion looks as if it will soon open, the South block seems ready and the sun beds and umbrellas are out, yesterday they were still working on the North block.

Ju Ju's now has a permanent roof on their lower deck.

Sandcastle, the ex Bob Monkhouse house next to Royal Pavilion, now called Footprints is just about finished. Ultra modern and very swish, I would love to have a look inside.

I will have a look to see if Ramshackles is open today, it will be good to see some activity at that end of the beach.

Last night three of us went to Bombas where we had a reef fish called Leather Jacket (a type of Skipjack), excellent. There were quite a lot of people eating there and Wayne was in good form.

This is a pic from the Royal Pavillion web site of their beach. I once looked at one of their ground beach front rooms and it was quite nice, along with the price. :lol: At the time, I was staying next door at The Glitter Bay and it was just a short walk to Royal Pavillion. As I recall, didn't RP purchase Glitter Bay? The beach there is quite nice.
