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.
