The Merricks, Barbados – Thursday, March 7, 2013
(click all photos for larger versions)
Dear Barbados Free Press
While sight seeing and using Barbados Holiday Map provided to us tourists as a guide, we went looking for the “Photo Opportunity” shown on the map at Palmetto Bay. As we looked for Palmetto Bay, we came across the Merricks sign; so being a periodic reader of BFP I decided to proceed to see what Photo Opportunities we could find.
The attached pics were just taken Thursday March 7, 2013. They look strangely similar to those previously published on BFP in August 2012! What has been done in the past year?
There were two workers (?) on the site. An old guy who was dismantling a temporary storage area, and a young kid who was wandering around and sitting around. Thought you might want save the time and gas expense to go out to the Merricks site.
Harlequin’s promotional claims that “The Merricks Resort is situated on the stunning Atlantic coast in the south east of Barbados; and the resort has been designed to take advantage of the stunning cliff top position which affords spectacular vistas across the Atlantic Ocean.” are true. I must have missed it but I saw no beach.
“Just Taken” moniker reflects that the photos attached were just taken a couple of days ago. Fortunately I have not been taken in by the Harlequin Scheme.
