We loved Sapphire and would definitely stay there again. The staff was wonderful, the rooms gorgeous, the views spectacular, and the pools fantastic. Just what we were looking for in a perfect getaway for both relaxation and fun. Close to everything you might need.
Every condo has a gorgeous view of the aqua blue Caribbean ocean! The condo is spacious and well maintained. Have your mask and snorkel ready to swim with the turtles right off the beach! The people of Barbados are incredibly friendly and we felt extremely safe. We thoroughly enjoyed our spring break!
We enjoyed our vacation very much. St Lawrence/Gap offers so many great dining options however shopping in this area is limited. Our boat trip, swimming with the turtles, was truly wonderful. Access to water sports was easy. I will share one negative-we stayed on the first level so we were enjoyed our poolside patio every evening before dinner. I have two very well behaved and courteous young adult children. My son was playing music on our patio (not loud at all) and I was sipping a glass of wine. I wondered out a few steps by the pool and I was scolded by female security guard for having a glass of wine by the pool and for my son's music. She could have been polite when asking us to take the wine inside and lower the music but that was not the case. I am an adult paying a good price for this vacation rental and I did not appreciate being treated like a child. I wish I had her name to report her. Other than that the stay at Sapphire Beach was fine.
Our experience in Barbados was wonderful. Our accommodations at Sapphire Beach condo were perfect. ASK Real Estate handled all the details to our complete satisfaction. We are looking forward to our next trip.
Two week stay in this fantastic condo. Located in a secure environment which leads directly onto the beautiful sandy Dover Beach. The Condo is fully furnished with everything you need to feel like home. We were two adult couples sharing the space, which felt plenty big enough and provided more than enough private space. Fantastic location, fantastic security (watch out for Gayle) and wonderful facilities throughout. Only one warning, you will need to take luggage up a narrow(ish) staircase to one of the bedrooms. High recommend this Condo.
close to St. Lawrence gap, restaurants, bars, easy to go on the bus to anywhere, walking distance to restaurants, and Dover Beach is really nice.. You can arrange for two chairs and umbrella for 20 bbd ( 10 us) or pay by the week...
The Condo was really nice, nice furnishings, nice bathrooms, the Veranda facing the ocean was the best...
Our first time in Barbados and everything was an unknown. Was this a good location? Did the condo actually look as nice as the pictures? How far to the beach? What was the food like? Does Barbados really exist?
The answer to all of the above was an emphatic positive yes!
St Lawrence gap is a superb location for all class of restaurants within walking distance from the condo. From casual to elegant dining with most having a water view. Food is is very creative in fine dining and excellent for ethnic island cuisine.
The management team (Anita & another young lady) met us in the covered parking area upon arrival. If you rent a car, you have an assiged space adjacent to the door to your ground floor unit. They took us through the condo and showed us all the features and even provided a gift basket with milk, eggs, orange juice fruit, chips, a fresh loaf of bread and even the local Banks beer. The condo looks even nicer than the pictures and the ocean view is spectacular from the upstairs living room and the downstairs bedroom. I would point out that if walking stairs is an issue, this unit would be a problem. You walk in on the lower (street) level and there is a bedroom, bath and laundry area. You climb a flight of stairs to the kitchen, living area and bedroom and bathroom #2. The bedrooms are good size and the lower bedroom has a very nice walk in shower.
Dover beach is adjacent to the Sapphire Beach condos and through a security gate. Excellent beach with just enough wave action to make it interesting. Some areas very soft sand and others not as smooth. Chairs can be rented for $5 USD for the day and the condo comes with beach towels and chairs by the pool. There are two pools within the condo area (pleasantly warm water) and a security gate at the street and at the beach. Maintenance is continous at both the condo area and the beach area in front of the gates with the sand raked and all the vegetation taken away.
The condo was fully supplied with everything except kleenex and washing machine soap. Great washer/dryer as well as twice a week maid service made life very comfortable.
There is an answering machine and local phone calls were free. The wifi was excellent with the router in the unit.
The condo location was perfect and the beach was just the right size. We even took a tour of a 3 bedroom unit, which is all on one floor.(upper floor with elevator) in preparation for our next visit to Barbados when we will have our grandchildren with us.
Couldn't have asked for a better vacation.
