Nautilus Beach Apartments
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Ok...this is as simple as it gets. I have been coming here on and off since 1996. While it seems very little updating has been done to the place since this time that really doesn't matter. These apartments are clean, and located on the beach...the best beach in Barbados in my opinion. These amazing Caribbean waters are always calm and full of friendly little fish that delight children. Heck a sea turtle paddled by us this past visit.

The Nautilus cleaning staff is amazing. We loved Nicole and Elmina. They are so helpful and full of knowledge. They are also warm and wonderful and go above and beyond their duties as room cleaners. They are the backbone of this establishment.

From Nautilus it is easy to get to Bridgetown. You can either walk the beach almost all the way, or take a ZR (minivan), a minibus or a Bus. The convenient Bay street location is perfect for hitting St.Lawrence Gap nightspots or taking care of business in town. Also grocery shopping near Worthing is great (town offers better prices but Big B and Trimart offer great selection). Lastly, the gas station across and down the street can be a true life saver. My son fell ill one night and they actually had cough medicine and Oblas oil for him. Oblas oil at a gas station!? Whole Foods in NYC just started carrying that...I'm fairly certain we wont be finding it at a BP anytime soon.

Did I mention the amazing beach?! This is an excellent place to have children stay at. Very basic but as long as you are desire serious sea time and want to be able to get around easily this is the place for you.

We have stayed here many times before, in truth it has become a home from home place to stay. Located on one of the nicest beaches in Barbados, excellent for sunbathing (beautiful white sand), swimming and snorkelling Brown's beach right next to the Carlisle Bay marine park.. You wake every morning after a peaceful nights sleep to the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. The rooms are clean and comfortable, adequate kitchen (for those who wish to cook) fridge/freezer, microwave and coffee-maker , valuables safe and air conditioning in every room. All of the staff from management level,receptionists and maids are very friendly, helpful and informative, special treat on wedneday and friday afternoons are Wanda's rotis, these are delicious and reasonably priced.. Close to Bridgetown and a short bus ride to Oistins the Nautilus is the place to stay..

Cannot wait to go back again in November.

Stay safe, Love life

We have just come back from spending 10 days at the Nautilus and can thoroughly recommend it. Its has a perfect position on Browns beach which is the best beach in Barbados for swimming and relaxing.
The superior appartment which we had overlooked the sea and was spacious , clean and very comfortable.
The bed which is very important to me was very large and comfy and we both slept very well. There is air conditioning in the bed room which was certainly needed as both my husband and I had never been anywhere as hot.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, you can also get on line in you need wfi or use the hotel computor for checking in flights etc.
We will definately return in the future.

We wanted a small hotel as close to Bridgetown as poss so we could use public transport to get around the island. We found out later that some of the buses run from the Garrison area close by up to the north so we didn't even need to get into BT to get this bus. By the way, the local buses are fantastic. Nautilus was fine except room number 1 has no outside area apart from the bit for all residents so we had to carry our breakfast across the carpark. Also it was very dark as we couldn't open windows (only shutters) I think any of the other room would be great and many are booked repeatedly year after year. At first we couldn't find eating p,aces nearby but after a couple of days we realised there were several. We don't do hire cars but if you do, it's no problem at all. Go to Oistins Friday night and book a table if you want to eat at the Waterside restaurant in BT.

Arrived in the parking lot at about 3.30 and could not belive my eyes here in front of me was a sight to behold, greenish blue sea extending from a white sandy beach with a group of boats moving with the waves, Was this a dream???. Our 1 BR Apt was on the ground floor. The kitchen was well equipted with everything we needed , small dinning area and very nice sitting area with TV and a nice deck with the same view of the sea. The room was spottless. The maids were wondererful and management excellent. We had the best vacation ever and we have had a lot of vacations.
Thanks to all the staff at the Nautilus, we will be back. "The Moores"

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at Nautilus for almost a month this past January. The location of this hotel is perfect for any type of traveller as it is close to Bridgetown, but not far from the lively south coast.

The staff at Nautilus are extremely helpful and accomodating. They were always available to answer any and all questions we had about the island.

The rooms were more spacious than we expected. We stayed in a "Standard Apartment" and found it very comfortable.

We will definately be back!

We have spent nine holidays at the Nautilus beach apartments. The apartments are spacious and have everything you need for a superb holiday.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
The views are fantastic overlooking the beach and harbour.
If you want a relaxed holiday on one of the best beaches on the island then you can't beat the Nautilus.
It is close to good restaurants and Bridgetown with frequent bus service which accesses the whole island
