There was a small mix up with the arrival time seeing that he arrived at 10.30 AM and not the usual 3.00 PM check in time. The guest was asked to wait 30 minutes so the apartment could be presented properly. He then went to the airport to pick up the remaining guests. Barbados is actually going through an economic struggle due the government's inefficiency and corruption. Guests are always told not to leave doors open and so on, but unfortunately they do not listen and become careless and that is when crime takes advantage. Barbados is a safe destination, once you are aware that crime does exist and not make yourself a obvious target for criminals. Crime is on the rise all over the world, but Barbados is much safer that many other similar destinations once you keep alert and heed the recommendations of the hosts.
