Expert Review

When you pull up to this unassuming boutique hotel, you'll think you've arrived at a rather quaint-looking gas station, which is precisely what it used to be. Bucking first impressions, The Lone Star attracts Barbados's visiting glitterati to its four rooms and four-bedroom beach house, outfitted with Philippe Starck trimmings, flat-screen TVs, DVD/CD players, refrigerators, and beachfront terraces. The hotel rooms are spacious - 850 to 1,050 square feet in size - and blend subtly elegant Italian furnishings with local Bajan décor (think mahogany, the whimsy of muslin, and gleaming wooden floors). The coral stone beach villa, complete with fresh flowers, fragrant candles and its own staff, touts antiques and artwork from the owners' private collection. Mariah Carey, Simon Cowell and Kylie Minogue have all bedded here, "where Jimmy Choos are often seen, but certainly not necessary."
