Fantastic 10 days….

Thanks Pam for showing us that pumpkins make great soup! Her Caribbean curry was delicious. Thanks for making our stay extra special. Her Royal Highness Megan felt at home!! xx Thanks to the others taking care of the garden and car park, etc. too!

Barbados at its very best

The Ivy is the most fabulous place to stay. From the warm welcome from Pam who will look after your every need, to the warm breezes flowing across the luxurious balcony of the apartment, to the stunning views of the beach on its doorstep. To stay is to return, again, again and again…

G.M (May 2019)

Thank you!….

Excellent first class service. Could not fault anything. We felt taken care of and all/any requests looked after. Thank you.

M.G (April 2019)

Back again!…

As usual, the warmest of welcomes from Pam – thank you for taking care of us! A little piece of heaven at The Ivy!

M.P (February 2019)

Excellent property. We loved the beach views and PAM! She spoiled us for 5 glorious weeks. See you next January!

D.S (January 2019)

Another great stay at Coral Cove 6! Thank you for everything Pam! Great relax before Christmas

M.H (December 2018)

Home from home….

We have had a fabulous time in this apartment! It is a home from home with Pam helping to make our stay memorable. Delicious food made for us – Oxtail stew is a must, with peas and rice along with tasty roast chicken. The beach is fun and great for snorkeling. All in all we had a truly wonderful time and hope to return. Thank you Pam!

B.G (July 2018)

We shall return….

Where to begin? The apartment is truly wonderful and has a view I could never get bored of. Fabulous location and wonderful people in Barbados! Pam is a wonderful housekeeper and looked after us all with anything we needed. Pumpkin soup = yummy! Thank you, we will be back!

S.B (May 2018)

Just wonderful….

We come to the island several times a year and always stay at Coral Cove. We have stayed in this unit many times and it always exceeds our expectations. Pam is absolutely amazing and the comfort of The Ivy is just like being home. Beautifully decorated and every detail thought of. Thank you again for a wonderful family holiday!

H.P (May 2018)

We keep coming back….

Third time at this apartment, you just can’t keep us away. When we are thinking of a relaxing week – this is the first place we think of! We keep returning as we know it is an ideal place to relax, enjoy the sun, beach and sea and have a wide variety of good restaurants within easy reach! Pam is an incredible asset to the place, thanks a lot!

P.B (February 2018)

Great view! Great apartment! Great vacation! Thanks for everything! Pam is truly amazing and such a great person!


C.M (January 2018)

Wonderful Stay…

A week was way too short! We had a wonderful stay at “The Ivy.” Pam took great care of us. We all loved the Villa! Thanks Pam – you make the place so welcoming!



K.P (November 2017)

True Bajan Luxury…

Our first visit to Barbados was a real treat with staying at The Ivy – A perfect holiday apartment with everything you need. Spacious and decorated throughout with beautiful art, The Ivy is situated on an idyllic, palm-fringed, sandy beach.

Paynes Bay is perfect for snorkeling- we saw turtles everyday and a kaleidoscope of fish. The people are very friendly and the area is very safe too. Pam the housekeeper really looked after us. She is the best cook and her pumpkin soup is out of this world! We absolutely loved our stay and would highly recommend it as the perfect holiday destination. We have certainly returned home fully relaxed and recharged.



S.A (August 2017)

I shall be back….

It is the first time we have stayed in a private apartment instead of a hotel and wow what a difference! Everything is much more personal, spacious and private. Pam gave us the ultimate care and hospitality needed to make our stay truly memorable. The location is absolutely unbeatable. The apartment is really spacious and immaculate and you really couldn’t be any closer to a beach. Any closer and you would be in with the turtles! Thank you for such a magical stay. See you again soon.



C.L (June 2017)


Wonderful stay at the Ivy, its’ very beautiful, and very equipped for all your needs especially Pam the housekeeper. The apartment has a view you will never forget. The beach is pretty and there’s a good beach bar, price ok. The sea can be a bit rocky but sill lovely. We will definitely be going back.



S.R (June 2017)

First time to Barbados….

It was our first time to Barbados and we loved it! The condo was fantastic and the added personal touch was Pam. She was incredible and truly loves taking care of guests. She is 1 in a million and we can’t wait to come back soon.



T.F (May 2017)

The best place to stay….

This is our second visit to Coral Cove and once again it proved to be the best place to stay. The beach is beautiful, the accommodation is lovely and Pam is a delight. She pays attention to every detail ensuring the guests are well looked after. We are looking forward to relaxing again and coming back for Pam’s delicious cooking.



B.C (December 2016)

The best week!….

The Ivy is the best accommodation on the island. The highlight was an afternoon spent on the beach and coming in to find a beautifully set table and Pam’s gourmet flying fish dinner. We also enjoyed the curried chicken and Pam’s fantastic attitude. The staff made for a great holiday, thank you.

C.T (July 2016)

Couldn’t be better….

Very large 3-bedroom apartment. Huge master suite, good size 2nd suite, and 3rd bedroom has next door shower room. Everything was presented in a first class condition. Pam the house keeper is great! Location is everything in Barbados and by luck we chose that, as The Ivy is on the best part of the best beach in Barbados (in my view). 1st floor location which has stairs and lift access and very secure.

P.P (May 2016)

Stylish and Superb….

A beautiful floor-to-ceiling glass concertina door folds back completely to leave nothing between you and the view…and it’s no mistake this will be open for you when you arrive at the Ivy. It actually stopped me in my tracks. The apartment is huge and stylish, but I lived on the balcony terrace. It’s huge too – another lounge and dining room – on the outside, in the fresh air, with that stunning view – oh and a hot tub!

The Ivy is one floor up and so you have privacy, yet you’re close enough to see turtles coming up out of the crystal clear water for a quick gulp of air before heading back down. On my last day, from the hot tub, I looked out to the garden to see a hummingbird hover above a beautiful flower and a few yards beyond it – a turtle coming up for air. A beautiful goodbye. The Ivy is a delight.

B.O (June 2015)

The staff are great….

Such a beautiful country and apartment and the people are the friendliest we have met. Thank you to Pam for your hospitality and Romeo for your advice. Pam – your cooking is incredible. We were so well looked after. We feel so lucky to have had this experience and will miss the sound of the waves and the frogs, but mostly people. Thank you.

F.L (April 2015)

Amazing location….

After our visit a few years ago I had no hesitation in booking this apartment again, as it lived up to our expectation and more, with superb high quality fittings and facilities. The location within this bay is just fantastic and is yards from the fabulous beach where we spent many hours swimming, snorkeling and chilling on the water. Romeo, Pam and Deborah were also very helpful and looked after our every need.

M.G (February 2015)

Cannot get enough….

A fourth wonderful stay at No 6 Coral Cove Paynes Bay in Barbados. A luxurious and very comfortable three bedroom apartment right on the beach with stunning views of the sea and a lovely beach. Everything one could wish for, for a beach holiday including the wonderful Housekeeper, Pamela who is also a great cook.


P.S (January 2015)

Stunning apartment and great location….

We had a really stunning week at Coral Cove – the apartment met all our expectations – beautifully appointed rooms and a private access and onto the best beach in Barbados, which is a stone throw from the apartment. From the veranda overlooking the beach we enjoyed the lovely Caribbean evening sunsets, if you have not seen one then Coral Cove is the place. Pam looked after us well and produced delicious meals cooked to perfection – fantastic views and location. Coral Cove gives you a real taste of the vibrancy and colour of Barbados.

T.B (December 2014)

Perfect getaway….

We had an absolutely amazing stay at The Ivy. The apartment is beautifully furnished and really does look as it is online. An added bonus was the proximity of some of the island’s best restaurants with The Cliff within staggering distance and plenty of other eating places very close by. It was also very useful to be within a five minute drive of Holetown and the Supermarket. I’d also recommend checking out the East coast for its rugged beauty if you hire a car.

We mainly spent our days lounging on the beach and swimming with the turtles, which my partner insisted on swimming out to most days! It’s pretty incredible seeing these creatures in their natural environment. Lunchtimes were spent dining on the terrace enjoying Pam’s culinary delights and then we often ate out in the evening. We loved the Jacuzzi and spent many an evening taking in the beautiful views/sunsets from the balcony with a glass or two of bubbly!

Romeo and Clifton who provided security were really friendly and helpful, as were the Owner and Property Manager with arranging our transfers and groceries. We would be very happy to return here as it was the perfect getaway!

H.H (June 2014)

Style and location….

Coral Cove – if there is a better position for an apartment on the West coast of Barbados I want to see it. Standing on the balcony you are a stone’s throw from the enticing Caribbean sea – and when I say stone’s throw – that is a gentle under arm toss, not a full blooded hurl. The apartment block is on one of the most wonderful stretches of beach, with turtles swimming a short distance off shore, likewise the vibrant coral with its abundance of sea life. The apartment is beautifully furnished, but feels really homely too – and the wonderful restaurants of the West coast are all within easy reach.

R.W (May 2014)


Who needs Sandy Lane when you have Coral Cove 6? Truly amazing!

D.C (May 2014)

Luxurious stay in a fabulous location….

Coral Cove is in an unbeatable location – The Ivy, on the first floor, has a fantastic view overlooking the beach and easy access to it. The apartment is beautifully furnished and has everything one could possibly need. Pam, the housekeeper, is a lovely lady, who cooked and cleaned, and spirited away our dirty laundry, returning it clean and ironed the next day. Her little touches, like a bowl of water in which to rinse our feet when we returned from the beach, were very much appreciated. The apartment is spacious, but when we weren’t in the bedroom, we were out on the balcony, with its comfortable sofas and large dining table, marvelling at the view, especially of the sunset. It’s the perfect place to watch the goings on on the beach and the catamarans stopping at the turtle feeding station offshore. Having hired a catamaran for our own trip, we actually found ourselves swimming along beside a turtle about two feet from the beach there. Sun loungers are set out every morning for Coral Cove residents and there is a roped off swimming area.

Paynes Bay is well located for eating out, with Holetown just along the coast and the marvellous Cliff restaurant close by. It was well placed for visiting other parts of the island, like the wild and beautiful Bathsheba or the hustle of Bridgetown.

All in all, Coral Cove is the ideal spot for a beach holiday in Barbados and we will surely return if we can.

D.T (March 2014)

Best pumpkin soup….

Pam’s pumpkin soup was a Hit! As was our entire visit. What a lovely place to spend a mini-break. Thank you for being so accommodating with our requests and a special thank you to Pam for being such a great lady to have around. See you again soon.


L.L (April 2013)

Can’t wait to come back….

Back in Paradise and returning to Coral Cove! We have had an amazing stay. Pam has been fantastic, we love the apartment and we will be booking again. Palms food was also fabulous- we love it here.


P.K (March 2013)

Wonderfully luxurious apartment….

The Ivy at Coral Cove is the perfect base to experience everything Barbados has to offer. It is wonderfully luxurious and very well appointed, while also being very comfortable, incredibly spacious and perfectly located right on the beach. Pam, the housekeeper looked after us very well and she is really friendly, without being intrusive and her cooking is absolutely delicious. The apartment is in a perfect location to explore all of Barbados or you can just relax on the balcony, in the hot tub or on the private sun loungers on the beach. We especially loved being able to swim with the turtles every day, as they live right outside Coral Cove. We would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone wishing to enjoy Barbados in style.

E.F (March 2013)

Amazing view….

We have enjoyed a lovely holiday in the apartment and on the beach. It has been very relaxing with the sands and the view of the sea on our doorstep. The food prepared by Pam was wonderful and she took very good care of us. Thank you

M.E (August 2012)

Very relaxing….

We visited this great holiday destination in 2012 and were not disappointed. The accommodation was everything we expected and more, with a great layout and every comfort you could want or need. The apartment terrace has an outlook directly onto the beach and is just the best place to relax at any time of the day.

G.M (June 2012)

5 stars isn’t enough….

A fabulous week in a fabulous apartment. Everything was perfect and it was made so much better being looked after by Pam, who’s cooking skills are the best in Barbados. Sad to be leaving, can’t wait to return to Coral Cove.

J.K (April 2012)

Happy days on the beach….

What a wonderful vacation. The weather was amazing, fantastic food, service and security. Thank you to the staff for being so welcoming and some ‘friendly faces’

D.U (March 2012)

A brilliant stay on Paynes Bay

Wow! What a beautiful apartment and amazing view, we loved it. Pam is also a great hostess. Thank you for the great hospitality everyone!

M.F (October 2011)

Fabulous apartment

We have had an amazing time, the location is perfect and we can’t wait to visit again. Pam was great, and her cooking was amazing. A great stay in Barbados.

G.D (July 2011)

Very spacious apartment

We loved staying at Coral Cove “The Ivy” and greatly enjoyed our vacation. The unit was so spacious and well-appointed, the views were spectacular and Pam was lovely and a pleasure to have. Thank-you for renting your apartment to us. The four of us are already looking forward to next year!
