5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2006

The photos on Maresol website don't do it justice. I had a huge one bedroom over looking the ocean, while located in a beautiful garden, with a terrasse half the size of the living room.
I was amazed at how clean the entire apartment was, compared to some locations in the French Caribbean.
The Maresol apartments have plenty of closet space and commodes in the bathroom, hallway and bedroom. I could easily have lived there six months.
Audrey and her staff are very friendly.

I had come to Barbados to rest after two very stressful years, and I left quite relaxed, thanks to Maresol Beach.

The only thing: The Maresol is loosing its beach. Five coconut trees fell due to high tide taking a big chunk of sand with them, but you still have white sandy Dover Beach a few steps away.

I will gladly stay at Maresol beach again. It's a good value for your money right now.

We recently returned from Barbados after spending two weeks there in Jul/Aug 05 for a small Family Reunion. We stayed at Maresol Beach Apts located in St. Lawrence Gap and everyone was quite pleased with their accommodation. After staying at hotels around the world, maresol was the best idea for the occasion. We didn't have to worry about walking down long hallways to the elevators around the corner. Maresol offerred affordability, US $625 per week for a beach front two bed room apartment. Each apt vary in price depending on size, sea view or garden view. I especially enjoyed listening to the waves clapping late at night and early in the morning. The early bird swim (as I call it) was much fun inspite of some rain. The apartment was clean and fully equipped with the much needed amenities. The staff was friendly and was there when you needed something. Restaurants lined St Lawrence Gap, so you don't have to worry about finding some good food, and they are all in walking distance, well, if you don't mind walking. Gift shops next door, across the street and down the street. Don't worry, public transportation is just a few blocks away in walking distance, so you can just hop aboard for a ride to the city or to the popular Oistins Fish Market. Maresol got an "A" in my book. Like everywhere else, exercise common sense when travelling.

Members of my family have stayed at Maresol for several years and I have rented there for the last 3 years. The units are very spacious and have all the amenities you need, the staff is very helpful and the location is terrific. Dover Beach is perfect for swimming and there are lots of restaurants within easy walking distance of Maresol.

I would definitely recommend Maresol.

Maresol is that rare place on the South Cost - apartments and houses with a sense of tranquility and space. No high density accomodation here- instead a lovely garden complex with breathtaking views of the sea, the beach and the sunsets. Not for those wanting luxury but our apartment was perfect- simple and clean with a good kitchen, large bathroom, brilliant air conditioning in the bedroom and a shaded balcony for the balmy days. Another visitor here was on her 58th visit to Barbados and she chooses Maresol every time! We will return without hesitation.

These apartments are excellent value. The thereaputic surroundings help you to enjoy a well earned vacation. However as with many holiday destinations you must be security concious. Whilst the security staff at Maresol do a very good job, the holiday maker has to do their bit also. If you loose goods from your apartment make sure you are not to blame. The staff are of a high standard and you will get all the assistance you need from them. They will book inter island flights and also trips on dinner cruise boats along the west coast.Excellent

We spent two weeks at Maresol and enjoyed every minute. My wife and I love to read when we vacation and Maresol has a lovely shaded garden that overlooks the Caribbean. The water is warm and calm, ideal for swimming or just bobbing around. Maresol's staff are very helpful and make you feel right at home. The apartments are open and airy -- no need for air conditioning. We willl return!!!
