Barbados - Sea U Guest House

Barbados - Sea U Guest House$104 - Okay, it has the silliest name of the group of resorts, but this ultimate hideaway on Barbados' east coast is tops. Sea-U Guest House doesn't look like much, but behind is a two-story plantation-style hotel with seven basic rooms cooled by the island breezes.

Still, Sea-U is so very appealing. Many Europeans and Americans get to become great friends over the family-style meals. The local house cat and a passel of wandering monkeys will keep you entertained at dusk.

You won't find traditional Caribbean casinos here. And don't expect beach bumming to be your onpastimeime. If you drive the countryside, you will take in some beautiful seaside villages, plantations, gardens and English country churches - some from the 17th century.

Seu U is located in Bathsheba, a community of a few thousand souls. There are Chattel Houses, small wooden homes, spread out over palm tree decorated slopes; not a single three-story-building in the area.
