But choosing where to stay, as on any island, isn’t always easy. Are you looking for the dynamism and fun of the south coast? The luxury and grace of the Platinum Coast? The vibrant history of the capital? An affordable all-inclusive or a luxury retreat — or something that defies classification?

O2 Beach Club and Spa This is the hottest place to stay in Barbados right now, a fresh, crisply-designed all-inclusive with 130 rooms and suites in a prime location in the heart of the island’s always-energetic St Lawrence Gap. Amenities include three pools (two of which are just for adults), four eateries and an outstanding spa. We’re particularly fond of the swim-up rooms.
