|Relaxing, lots of laughter Villa is lovely. Loved walking the beach every day. We had a driver by the name of Perry that shared stories of the island, shared some local spots, was always on time... The staff were friendly, and attentive. We had the Chef. Breakfast , lunch and dinner, all was good. Favorite activity: swam with the turtles, sunset spectacular..|
|Our holiday was fantastic, everything was great. The house was just wonderful and everything we had hoped for. The staff were very friendly and looked after us very well. We were so lucky with the weather, hardly had any rain! Many thanks for all you help and we hope to be back next year!|
|The staff the Sandalo house was very welcoming. Our every need was met. The detail service was evident in the seasoned marlin to the poolside beverage service to cleaned, folded and pressed clothes. The home was kept immaculate. The grounds were well-maintained with daily attention, and Phillip made us feel very secure with his constant attention to the property perimeter and security checks.|
|Hi Tricia (Concierge Guest Specialist) I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all your help with our holiday in Barbados and to say a HUGE thank you for the beautiful champagne West Coast Villas kindly gave us on Seaduced. It was so kind of you all and made what was an incredible day even more special. Sadly we're now back home - we landed this morning :( BUT we had THE most wonderful holiday ever so thanks to everyone who helped make it so wonderful. Thanks again and we really hope to come out again soon (I read the West Coast Villas brochure all the way home!).|
|Having stayed at a few villas onthe West Coast, we have always found the hospitality to be of a high standard. The staff at Sandalo have been exceptional, excellent service with a friendly smile. Highly reccommendde!|
