With 289 rooms, this family-friendly resort is the second largest of three all-inclusive Almond properties in Barbados. Located on the south coast along nine acres of original vegetation, the Casuarina has easy access to the airport and St. Lawrence Gap. Rooms are comfortable, though some show their age. The beach area is expansive with plenty of mid-size waves, and the water-sports center provides free use of all the equipment. The three pools, kids' club, tennis courts, and fitness center are enough to keep guests of all ages busy. As a bonus, guests have access to the other two Almond resorts to avoid all-inclusive monotony.
