Very disappointing

I have to give a fair review although the Nautilus Apartments are good but we had a very poor experience last week.PositiviesLovely locationNice friendly staffNegativesWe arrived to be told that we had been upgraded because are allotted room had not been finished - so far so good!We were also told that the safe was permanently locked and the tv didn't work.What we didn't know was that:-The A/C didn't work for 7 of our 10 nightsThe hot water didn't work for 9 of our 11 daysThere was no electric kettle and the gas pressure was low so any hot water we needed took a long time and obviously couldn't provide a warm showerWifi didn't work in the room - in room Wifi promised on the internetThe 2 legs fell off the balcony table when we tried to move itWe suffered many insect bites due to the fact that we had to have the shutters open day and night to get any air into the apartment - but it was still hot. We slept badly due to the heat until the A/C worked when we slept well.The tv was only fixed on day 9 despite the problem being poor tuning.The deputy manager tried her best to get things going regarding repairs but there were always excuses of parts being required, engineers gone home etcWe asked a gentleman who was in reception if he knew who owned the apartments and he said that he did. He seemed shocked at our list of faults and did rectify some of them but we felt more in concern of his next visitors rather than us.He apologised but made no attempt to rectify our great disappointment and the fact that we were not having regular warm showers and comfortable sleep at night. Had we been American I am sure threats to sue would have been made.In all it was poor value for what we paid and we wouldn't recommend the accommodation as it was nowhere near what was advertised when we booked. We were very disappointed with our experience at Nautilus. Having seen our designated room we would have been very happy in it and didn't ask for an upgrade.

Dated but friendly

We stayed for a fortnight with our three adult Son's, we had appts 209 and 210 they overlook the car park and are on the first floor, wish we could have had a sea view but other than that the rooms were fine, dated oven gave me attitude from day one, but I did have the choice of using the other one in the smaller room, there is an interconnecting door between them so we could go back and forth, the shutters on the windows are quite prison like to me, but then we have nothing like it in the UK so I can't compare fairly, AC was a little noisy but I am an insomniac so more down to me again lol!! TV was pants but you don't go on holiday to watch TV do you? Staff were lovely, really genuine people, and the apartments are really well placed for getting around the Island either by car or by bus. The beach is in my opinion one of the best in Barbados and many local people use it on a daily basis, I am very into green issues and community focused issues at home so I was pleased that the beach for the most part was clean and that there is very good public access to Carlisle Bay/Brownes Beach, we had no A/C in our main kitchen sitting area in room 210 so we had our door open and the patio door open too so we could get a breeze through, and we heard the music from the various groups meeting at the bandstand up the road, (lot's of gospel reggae lol) and even from Harbour Lights some evenings, but this wasn't a problem for us, it made us feel like we were part of the neighbourhood!! One of the ladies on reception told me that they are working on replacing and renewing some parts in the rooms and giving everything a lick of paint this September, I hope they remember to finish the job then as our room had parts of the wardrobes that hadn't been finished with a second coat, as if someone had been called away and forgotten to back and finish the job (and they must have moved on from the job several years ago, the paintwork is very very old) but I am being pedantic as I had just redecorated all three bedrooms in our house before our holiday I was in 'fresh paint' mode hahaha!! I would stay here again, my Son's said they would like to go somewhere else, I said they can pay then!!! Husband is happy to return, hopefully in 2018!

4days stay

We had a wonderful stay at Nautilus Beach Apartments, right at the beach, with a beautiful view out to the beach, sea, bay!The apartments are big and the service was perfect! (Cleaning of the apartment every day!) Everyone took good care of us! We'll come for sure again! Thanks much! K.

"What more could you need"

As some other people have said there is nothing fancy about the apartments, having said that, there is everything you need for a very comfortable stay, good comfy furniture, a full kitchen complete with microwave and toaster, comfortable beds and most importantly good air con (free) in the bedroom. The staff are amazing, Nicky & Susan will do everything in their power to give you everything you need, the housekeeping staff are friendly and do a very good job. The best thing is the location, just step through the gate and you are on the Carlisle Bay Beach, one of the best on the island, with calm, clear, protected water, turtles swimming round you as you stand in the 30 'C water, swim just a few yards over to the Marine Reserve and you can snorkel on the famous Carlisle Bay wrecks, - 5 wrecks in a very small area, with lots of sea life almost within arms reach. Yes, there are the fancy hotels just along the beach, at 3 or 4 times the cost. But I guarantee that for the cost, & with this location and personal service, you will not find a better deal on the Island, I know where we will be staying on our future trips to "BIM"

Very Convenient spot right on the beach!!!

I was referred to Nautilus Apartments by a friend of mine who is actually from there. She told myself and another friend of mine that we could stay there because it was close to her. We were ecstatic at the fact that it was right on the beach and was close to so many things (restaurants, gas stations, etc). I had such an awesome time that less than a month later i brought my mother back and we stayed in the same room. Everyone was soo nice especially Ms. Nikki, the room attendant. She was sooo pleasant and if i had any question about anything she helped me and answered my question. So sweet! I definitely recommend this place to anyone..they'll have a ball!
