I hope this isn't too late for your travel plans.

My wife and I have been to Barbados several times as I have a customer on the island (yeah, I know, its a tough job but someone has to do it).

We've always stayed on the South side of the island at the Sandy Beach Resort. Fantastic reef protected beach, very gentle waves, water sports, diving. Snorkeling from the beach is low quality, but easy for beginners.

The west side open waters are generally calmer than the open waters of the south side.

The west side resorts are more expensive, but closer to the best snorkeling.

Folkstone water park on the west side is the best snorkeling.

Other things:
Orchid world (one of my favorite places in the world).
Flower Forest
Rain forest & animal reserve
Golf (I haven't played there)

Happy traveling,
