ESCAPISM AT ITS BEST!

  • 5 of 5
This was the 3rd year in a row we have chosen to stay at Ocean Blue and we have already booked for next year which will be our 4th stay in this property for a period of 3 weeks each time! Everything about the property is just wonderful from mine hosts John & Janice to the wonderful house keeper Lyn who keeps the apartment immaculately clean at all times regularly changing the bedding and both bath and beach towels and generally pleased to facilitate any request including laundry which is a god send!
We cannot recommend this apartment highly enough the setting is superb and many an evening is just spent "Chill axing" on the balcony or small beach inlet, watching the sun set and the ships pass by with either a Banks or Mount Gay to hand! Just a few minutes drive or bus ride in either direction will get you to Bridgetown or Holetown and for a real Barbadian beach bar drive a few minutes more past Holetown to "Ju Ju's" beach bar by the Lone Star restaurant and you feel you really have arrived!
This review has been easy to write and we can assure you that once visited you will want to return as we have, it really does provide you with the most fantastic place to stay at a very reasonable cost! We could wax lyrical all day, but we would simply say, try it for yourselves and you will definitely not want to stay anywhere else unless the lottery comes up and then "No.1 Sand Lane" would be a possible choice, but just not the same!

ROMANTIC HAVEN IN A PERFECT SETTING.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at Ocean Blues, the location has to be seen to be believed! To wake up each morning to uninterrupted views of the ocean and its miriad of colours was just pure magic!

The property is well located between Bridgetown and Holetown both accessible by local bus (although a car is recommended if you want to visit the more out of the way beautiful places of the island and dine out at night). The apartment is well equipped and the outside areas are fab, great "plunge pool" and having private access to the sea is perfect for that early morning swim!! My husband even swam alongside a turtle one evening just yards from the property!

The owners (John and Janice) could not have been more hospitable, they made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The apartment is well maintained and spotlessly clean. Lynn the housekeeper was great, looking after our every need.

Overall, a fantastic place to stay which we would highly recommend. When we return to Barbados it will definately be to stay at Ocean Blues, just magical!!!
