Hi Mary, Yvonne!
We returned from Barbados this morning after a truly fabulous trip and I wanted to extend our thanks to both of you. The experience with you and Exceptional Villas has been truly exceptional! from our initial enquiry through to our return home today.
We have spent a few holidays in Barbados in well reviewed hotels and have always returned home underwhelmed and believing that we would probably not return to the island. The hotels seemed be living on past glories and have failed to invest to bring them to the standards we would expect.
Our whole experience of Smugglers Cove was exceptional from collection at the airport, catering, house keeping and concierge and we will definitely be returning again.
Once again, many thanks

Honeymoon Heaven
Honeymoon Heaven

We had a fantastic time in this absolutely beautiful residence. It’s in a wonderful location, ideally situated for all the top class eateries within easy distances eg. Daphne’s, The Cliff, Tides, CIn Cin, Lone Star and so on. Furnished to the highest standard, a truly gorgeous place to spend your holiday or in our case, honeymoon time. Amazing idyllic beach with turtles and rays visiting often and your own private swimming area...
