Islanders travel miles to the old seaside fort in the fishing village of Shermans to eat at this hotel's restaurant, The Fish Pot. The most sought-after seats in the house are those overlooking the sea, particularly at sunset when you can order lobster, grilled prawns and mahi-mahi while watching the sky slowly turn from fuchsia to mauve. But not many regulars have cottoned on to the New England-style, sea-facing wooden cottages in the lush tropical gardens (there are also a handful of suites above the restaurant). Each has a wraparound veranda, a fully equipped kitchen and a light, airy living room filled with books and Barbadian designs. The teak beds upstairs are enormous and the bathrooms small but perfectly formed. Breakfast isn't always quite as spot-on as dinner, but the banana bread - freshly baked each morning - is delicious. There's a tiny spa and two blissful pools, the smallest in the style of a miniature Roman bath with stone columns and water features. Laze in the sun with the resident tabby cat or clamber over the rocky headland to search out hidden coves and glimpse the rock-star mansions that back onto the bay (watch out for the tide, which comes in quickly so that by early afternoon there's only a narrow strip of white sand peeking out from under the shallows). On Friday nights, the nearby Six Men's fish market is the place to go for ice-cold Carib beers and grilled meat, eaten with greasy fingers while perched on wooden benches.

My husband, adult daughter and I had an absolutely wonderful dining experience here last evening. The food and service were excellent. It was lovely to have dinner with the sound of ocean waves in the background. We were in an alcove right on the beach! The dessert, cocoanut crumble, and also lemon pie were I think the best I've had anywhere. A very pleasant, casual atmosphere with top drawer food and service.
This small, low-key, relaxed and out of the way property lies on Barbados' sleepy north-west coast. It offers spacious, cottage-like suites equipped with full kitchens, and dining in The Fish Pot, a casual-chic beachfront restaurant that is one of the most appealing places to eat on the island.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at Little Good Harbour. We simply enjoyed everything about our holiday from the moment you greeted us with a welcoming Rum Punch to the last delicicious lunch on the beach in the Fish Pot. You have built a wonderful business with care and attention to detail from the unfailing courtesy and ‘can do’ attitude of your staff to the beautiful local art and furnishings in the villas and gardens. Having never visited Barbados before we were so happy that we experienced you and the north of the island first. We will be back and we will have no hesitation about recommending you to everyone we know!
Our Perfect, Little Hideaway
We love coming to Little Good Harbour year after year and it just keeps getting better. Graham and Trevor are really the most welcoming hosts and we will definitely be coming back - next time with the children. Comfortable rooms, excellent staff, perfect level of service - could not ask for more.
Hello from higher latitudes! A week ago we were on a beach, and now I'm commuting to work in a snow storm. Such is life! Please pass along our warm thanks to your team. From our inviting villa, to the delicious Fish Pot and down to the charming floating dock and Capt. Dwayne. Both you and Andrew offered us what a corporate chain cannot- a stylish home away from home with an added personal touch. From our greeting at the beginning to our warm goodbye at the end, we were well taken care of and that made our Dad's birthday trip a perfect one. Little Good Harbour truly reflects the warmth and charm of Barbados. I look forward to seeing all of you again, Leslie
