Tamarind Cove Hotel: "Rum in the Sun" Barbados Nightlife Tip by SabrinaSummerville

Barbados Nightlife: 58 reviews and 34 photos


Our hotel, the Tamarind Cove, had a guest cocktail party which was actually a free rum party for all the guests.

They served delicious rum cocktails in rainbow colours and we drank as many as they handed us.

Oooh, tons of fun but a big big mistake. The cocktails were so pretty and tastey that we didn't realise they are sweetened with raw cane sugar syrup. I spent three full days in bed recovering, as did my ex.

OK, right, I'm blaming the sugar syrup and not the alcohol - but honestly, I was as sick as can be. Entirely my own fault, of course, and not at all the hotel's as they just put that delightful temptation in our way.

Dress Code: Dress smartly, it's a cocktail party - but remember, if you're going to indulge the way we did, pack your most comfy old PJ's for the recovery days :-)
