These apartments are very basic and badly in need of updating. No amenities to speak of. Airconditioning only in bedroom, a fan in the sitting area and an ancient TV. Furniture needs to be replaced as do the towels which seem to have patches of bleach. Room not cleaned for 2 days. This was mentioned to the manager whilst there. Located on the beach, next to the Yacht Club.
We booked this venue for myself and a friend who were participating in the Mount Gay Round the Island Race. It is right on the beach (through a chainlink fence) and our room was on the ground floor with a beach view. It is a very clean place and very "doable" if you have other distractions. The staff are lovely and for the five nights we were there it was great.Kitchen was very handy as was the living room so there was LOTS of room compared to a hotel.
This place is very basic, no frills, but everything you need and very clean. Furniture and appliances are extremely dated and couch needs replacing. My biggest complaint were the beds. Hard as rocks,definitely not for middle aged or older people. Having said that the location is great. It's on the best beach on the Island. Overall a good value for young couples or a family on a budget. The security was good and we felt safe. Staff helpful.
I was extremely pleased with my stay at the Nautilus Beach Apartments. The ladies at the reception were very welcoming and kind. I stayed in a beach view apartment room 205. The apartment was spacious, updated renovations, fully stocked kitchen and an extremely comfortable bed. The building is a bit dated however you can't beat the price for such a cute, affordable apartment within stumbling distance of one of the best beaches in Barbados.
My friend and I stayed at the Nautilus for 10 days earlier this month, and had a pleasant experience.As mentioned in other reviews we were 'upgraded' as our original booked rooms were unavailable due to refurbishment. We had no. 12 on the first floor, overlooking Carlisle Beach which is fantastic, very clean and it was wonderful to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by!The apartment was spacious and well equipped and the air conditioning in the bedroom effective and quiet. There was a large rotating fan in the lounge area which was effective, but as we were on the end of the landing we usually left the doors open to allow a welcome through breeze.Our shower was good and we always had hot water, and the cleaning was adequate, though one of my negatives was that the room was not usually done before mid afternoon which was not really convenient as we were usually out early and back in the afternoon.Everything appeared to be in working order (though didn't put the TV on!) except the wi-fi though if I stood near the stairwell at the other end of the landing I could get a good signal, annoying as it is advertised that it was available in the room. The staff were friendly and helpful, and again the owner was around to talk directly to.The location is ideal for walking into Bridgetown( takes about 25 mins gentle pace), or it is well served by the bus services, and the bar over the road is good for basic meals and beer though there is very little else around within a reasonable walking distance if you don't want to self cater. Generally if was quiet, but due to the proximity of a local youth club and bandstand there was occasionally loud local music which I didn't find particularly annoying.I felt safe and the site seemed secure.Overall the apartment was fairly basic with no frills but suited us, however I thought it was on the expensive side .
