We recently stayed in room 208. The view and close proximity to the beach is what is best about Nautilus. The beach here is beautiful with relatively calm waters which are crystal clear. Our room on the second floor was maybe 10 feet from the sand of the beach!! We saw beautiful sunsets from 1 of our 2 balconies. There were sun loungers to take to the beach but no umbrellas and the sun is so hot in Barbados that one really needs shade. You can rent chairs and umbrellas down the beach at Harbour Lights or the Boatyard but it would be a huge improvement if umbrellas were provided here at the apartments. There was a gas station about 3 minutes away which had snacks/drinks available. Cuz's Fish Shack and Brown Sugar Restaurant were nearby and the bus stop is handy but there seems to be no schedule for them.
The apartment was large, almost too large for the two of us. The full kitchen has all you will need to prepare basic meals. The stove is a gas range that needs to be lit with a match so if you are not used to a gas stove it might make you nervous. It is dated in terms of furnishings but kept very clean by Tony who is a great housekeeper!
The staff at the front desk were very pleasant when they were there, although many times there was nobody there. Suggestions for improvement that would not cost much are the beach umbrellas and signs for the doors (do not disturb/please make up room). We were disturbed twice by staff wanting to make up the room in the mid morning. A simple sign would avoid this inconvenience. A lick of paint wouldn't hurt and It would also be great if you could purchase light snacks and cold drinks in the lobby!
