Falling somewhere between miniature resort and large guesthouse, Barbados Terrace has freestanding concrete bungalows packed around a garden just off a quiet stretch of the main drag.

This isn’t a place where you’d probably want to hang out during the day, but it wouldn’t be so bad if you had to.

Most of Barbados’ rooms come in the form of detached bungalows with small porches clustered very close together on three sides of a mini moat with a garden and tables at the centre. A few of the rooms have more interior space and wood daybeds but lack the porches. While none of these are terrible, the air-con and WiFi can be weak and bathrooms are small. Considerably better are the deluxe rooms set in the main building behind reception. These come with newer/better appliances, much-larger bathrooms, sofas, more comfortable beds, larger LCD TVs and closer proximity to the router -- so the WiFi actually works. While lacking the attached porches of the bungalows, deluxe rooms each have a table with a couple of chairs out on a shared hardwood terrace. All rooms also come with fridges and all but the bungalows have desks, though we had to carry a chair in from outside to sit at ours.

The staffers were cheerful and helpful when we stayed, and a tiny cafe serves basic breakfasts, beer and lunch plates. Guests can also help themselves to complimentary instant coffee in a common room with a few tables and a book exchange.

Barbados’ deluxe rooms are among the best in the village and the garden and common spaces give it a leg up on the more straightforward guesthouses, but you do pay a little more for it. You’ll probably get a discount if you ask nicely during low season. In early March we scored a deluxe for the price of a bungalow.
