Great location , lovely Villa and the Sharon and Aranda were both wonderful.


Pamela K. Dec, 2016

The villa was gorgeous, immaculate, and with all the amenities you could wish for. Staff was unfailingly helpful and friendly. We lacked for nothing and our party of nine was ecstatic to have been able to stay in such a beautiful home away from home.

Spent a week here with 7 people from two different generations. One group came to participate in Kadooment and another just wanted a "holiday." The property is exactly as featured in the photos. It is very "homey" while also a bit upscale. Although the beach is about a 10-15 minute walk away, the splash pool is a nice alternative.

The staff is very attentive. Merle, the cook, is amazing. And Ramanda, ensures that the house is in order.

One suggestion to future guests: Let the concierge arrange to pick up and deliver your groceries. I thought it would be easier to do it myself since I was already on the island, but in the long run I realized the 15% service charge is worth it.

In the end, everyone was pleased.

Spent 2 weeks with family and friends. The villa is gorgeous and extremely close to the center of Holetown (maximum a 5 minute walk to the grocery store and Surfside beach). I have stayed at many villas in Holetown over the years and this was probably the best location (unless you can afford a villa direct on the beach). We had morning visits on most days from the local monkeys (they use the back fence as a highway). Merle and Aranda (I hope I spelt her name correctly) took very good care of us the whole time and we really appreciated the hard work and long hours they put in. The local Property Manager (Michelle) was also helpful and accommodating especially given that we kept calling her because people kept locking themselves out of their safe (the local rum punch will make you do silly things if taken in large enough quantities). I would have given the villa an excellent rating except for 1 thing (although it is not the villa's fault). The neighbor next door is probably the most unpleasant person I have ever dealt with. Our first introduction to him was at about 8PM on our second night when he shoved his head through the bushes and started yelling we were being too loud. Granted we were having a good time but not so loud as to deserve such treatment. Had he been polite we would have been very accommodating and understanding. I could go on and on about the different "encounters" with him but suffice it to say, any noise level above what you hear in a library will get a reaction from him - no matter what the time of day is...We did eventually learn how to deal with him, and what initial upset us we now see as funny memories and stories to tell our friends, so I would definitely go back. Just wanted to give everyone fair warning ;-)

No. You will not share the villa with another party. The villa is exclusively yours. If a larger villa offers a lower bedroom rate category, the villa will remain exclusively yours but the unrented bedrooms will be locked off.
For example, a 5 bedroom villa that offers a 3 bedroom rate will be the exclusive use of the guest but two bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms will be locked off. Capacity is capped at 2 guests per bedroom.

WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING

"I wanted to say a huge thank you to you both for all your help with booking our recent stay at Forest Hills 25 Royal Westmoreland. We had a fabulous holiday and this was due to a huge extent by the quality of the villa. We spent quite a bit of time looking at the options available and we chose Forest Hills 25 due to location , facilities and based on the photos. There was a slight concern before we arrived whether the villa would live up to the photos but it’s fair to say the villa in real life exceeded our expectations. The villa is beautifully decorated and all the furnishings are of a very high standard. The villa is very well equipped (blender for home made pina coladas!). The bathrooms are very modern and all beds bedding linen etc very high quality. Everything was provided that we needed - down to beach towels for the pool, all kitchen equipment and great storage space for unpacking all our holiday wardrobes. One of the aspects that really made it for us in particular was the separate apartment which our 15 year old son loved as having his own space meant he could maintain his love of a long lie! And my husband still can’t stop talking about the TV package - on the few nights we stayed in there was plenty available to keep us entertained. We made use of all the facilities at Royal Westmoreland- great rum sours at the Rum Shack. And the boys loved having their own private pool just outside the villa! The weather was hot and on a few days a bit stormy so having a lovely villa to come home to really made a difference. We only saw Anne the housekeeper twice during our visit but she was very helpful and helped keep everything clean and tidy. Sally's welcome and farewell service was much appreciated and even though we only had 1 query Sally responded so quickly with an offer to help. The service from Barbados Blue before arriving was exceptional with lots of helpful information and answers to all our questions. We last visited Barbados 15 years ago but we are not intending to wait that long again to return to Barbados and fully intend to book Forest Hills 25 again. We have already recommended it to lots of friends. If I was going to provide any constructive feedback it would be to the owners in relation to their Royal Westmoreland membership. I imagine that few people like us bring tennis racquets on holiday and the rental they charge for racquets is very expensive for an hour. We did also make use of the facilities at the Beach Club and while the beach is beautiful and we had some lovely days there, the service is not the most friendly and efficient compared to other places. I would love it if you could pass on our feedback to the villa owners so they know what a great time we had. Thank you again for all your help."
