“Relaxed and friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013

Fantastic getaway with a great location, especially if you are into water sport like surfing, kite or windsurfing. Barbados is an expensive island, that said Moonraker is great value for the money, clean, fresh and very friendly and helpful staff.
The location is great, just by the water with close access to one of Barbados best kite and windsurfing venues.
The apartments have what you need and are clean, fresh with access direct to the garden.

We spent two weeks at moonraker and really enjoyed its friendly atmosphere and great location. The appartments are located on the see front in the middle of a large garden. It is very quiet and the area is still preserved and uncrowded. A small bar/restaurant is located on the property and is very convenient for a sunset cocktail or a tasty burger. There were few life bands when we stayed there. You just need to walk few meters to access a small quiet beach and or a kilometer to access the kitesurf/ windsurf area. Oistin (nice fish market on friday) and surfers point (nice surf spot for beginners) are reachable within a quick drive. The staff taking care of the restaurant and the appartments were very friendly and made us feel like home. We were staying in a spacious and clean two bedrooms flat on the first floor with lovely see view. You cannot go wrong staying there ...

I just returned from staying 8 days at MoonRaker in Barbados. We had a wonderful time there. MoonRaker accommodations provided all the basic comforts which was all I wanted. The room was clean, neat, open and breezy. The views of the ocean at the southern tip of the island were wonderful. I am not a surfer but many folks staying there were surfing/wind surfing at the Atlantic beaches at the resort.

I am into photography and took some wonderful photos walking along the paths by the resort and while touring the island. We had several great dinners at the restaurant on the grounds along with some great music and entertainment. Met some nice people from all over the world.

There were no surprises at MoonRaker; great value; scenic; peaceful; and fun. Steve and his staff all went out of their way to help. Definitely would return.

Moonraker apartments are a great place to spend your holiday. The vibe is chilled and friendly and the area is perfect. Only about 100 yards from my apartment is the beach and close by also a really good bar and restaurant which provides lots of entertainment without keeping me awake at night. It's a short bus ride into Oistains where you can buy fresh fish and veg and hang out of an evening with the locals. About 10 minutes on the bus is St.Lawrence Gap where there are loads of clubs and restaurants that won't break the bank. You can also learn how to kite surf, surf, wind surf and S.U.P. right here too, if you get tired of relaxing that is. A great place very comfortable and affordable with lovely staff.

We were at MoonRaker Reef Apartments 2 years ago and thought they were nice then. The rooms are continually being improved. We had a two bedroom unit. Our bedroom looked out to the sea. What a way to wake up in the morning! The charm of the room was unbelievable. I saw some of the planned improvements for the summer, and this place will be even better next year.
Everyone was so friendly. We compared notes with some of the other guests. It makes you feel like you're at home.

a great place to chill, apartments are clean simple with killer views also the service is fantastic. I would recommend getting a car but the owner Steve is always willing to give you a ride into town or wherever......... Much thanks looking forward to coming back again next year.

Simply put the best place on the island. Simple apartments with a good kitchen (GAS STOVE!)

Buy your fish from the market and grill it yourself.


All the best regards to Steve who will make things happen even when it seems that there is no option.

He is also the the source for your every day swell report/forecast. No need to open your seaweed.

Thanks again for a great stay. We will be back
