Favorite thing: Hello
I have been to Barbados many times and some of the other Caribbean islands. To my mind Barbados is by far the best but by no means the chaepest. As for nightlife try to stay on the South Coast. That way you will not be far from St Lawrence Gap (the Gap)where you can probably party the night away every night of the week at a different place. Also the Harbour Lights is a great nightspot not too far away. Yes rent a car. But as someone has already said maybe one day will let you see the whole island, but two days would be a bit more leisurely. As for hiking there are many guided hikes if that is what you want. Have a look at http://hikebarbados.com/.
Don't forget to look out for the green flash at sunset.
Fondest memory: Sitting at the bar at Surfside in Holetown during happy hour drinking one of the best rum punches on the island, watching the sun go down and hoping to see the green flash.
