Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to write to you to thank you for providing us with such a beautiful apartment in Barbados. Ocean Blue was even better in real life than the pictures, and Beverley does a fantastic job in maintaining it. It was like returning to a five-star hotel suite every day. We had a great time. I thought the kids would spend most of the time in the pool but the beautiful beach and sea on your doorstep was just too inviting. They both learnt to waterski during the holiday and swam with the turtles.

We couldn't get over how friendly everyone was - it was a holiday to remember and we will definitely be back. An ideal apartment in the perfect location.

WOW WOW WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW WOW WOW!!! We have just spent an incredible three weeks in this gorgeous apartment in Glitter Bay. There were four of us, my husband and two boys aged 14 and 11 and it was our best holiday yet.

Firstly, the apartment. It is perfect, the furnishings are very luxurious and comfortable, we spent many a happy mealtime sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea and the gardens. Chauntel the houskeeper is just lovely, very kind and helpful. She ensured that all my washing was done so when I unpacked on returning home this morning I can just put everything away nice and clean. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms and bedrooms are great sizes. And the master bed is super comfortable!

Secondly, the location. It really is second to none. Glitter Bay is situated on what is widely thought to be the best section of beach on the entire west coast. It really is stunning. And the apartment is in one of the best locations of the whole development, no road noise, all you can hear is the sea. And you can just stroll up the beach to snorkel with turtles - a definite 'must-do'!

Thirdly, Glitter Bay development. It is just perfect.The grounds are immaculate and the monkeys kept my children entertained. The pool is very clean and proved to be a great place for all the children to get together and play. The barmen (Alan and Rocky) really couldn't have been nicer and were great with the chlidren. They confirmed to us that the kitchen is going to be reopening for breakfasts, lunches and dinners, from around November onwards, and they plan for this to be open all year.

Fourthly, the owner. Penny has been great all the way through the booking process. Helpful, honest and timely - what more could you ask for!

We are already in discussions with her to go back next year - that's how much we LOVED it!

And I haven't even mentioned the Bajans. What lovely people they are, they really couldn't be any more friendly and kind.

If you are in two minds about booking to stay here - I can't recommend it highly enough.

Our holiday was one of the most relaxing we have had. The setting of your apartment could not be better. The ambience and the decor were just as you described, the terrace was a great place to watch the sunset with a drink. It allowed us all to enjoy the surroundings at our own pace (18 and 16 yr olds want to get up late and do their own thing).

My personal favourite was walking along the seashore early in the mornings, quite often sharing it with only 1 or 2 other people. My husband enjoyed Alan and Rocky's hospitality at the beach bar; my daughter enjoyed swimming with turtles in front of The Lone Star, and my son the jet-ski’s and waterskiing.

The Bajan people were very friendly and we enjoyed a trip by boat (Woody and Randy) to experience the Crop Over celebrations in Bridgetown (Rhianna didn’t show this year!). We tried out many of the restaurants on your recommended list and our favourite was Nishi, who prepared their chocolate dessert for me with Bon Voyage written on the plate on our last evening. Perry took us on a tour to see the island, and I will bring my tennis gear next time, as he tells me he is a coach too!
Chantel looked after us very well too, hardly any washing to do this morning on my return.

It would have been icing on the cake if the bar was serving breakfast and lunch time snacks to eat, but I think as it was quiet, they don’t plan to do that until it gets busier. We did go to Fairmont just on the other side of the lifeguard tower for lunch a couple of times.

Already planning to come back at sometime, so will hopefully be in touch for a 2nd trip.

Beautiful Aparment in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked through the door of Penny's beautifully furnished apartment I knew we would have a memorable holiday. Drifting off to sleep to the sound of the sea in that lovely white bedroom then having breakfast on the balcony overlooking the landscaped gardens and beach was bliss. The apartment is located in an idyllic spot, landscaped gardens, pools, tennis courts, bar and that palm fringed beach! Local shops and facilities including a new luxury shopping mall with designer stores and cinema are not far away. Ocean Blue has all the advantages and privacy of your own serviced apartment with the bonus of hotel facilities - drinks brought to your sun lounger at the water's edge, light lunches at the day-time bar or you can just stroll along the beach to the next door hotel for afternoon tea complete with cream scones (recommended!) or dinner. Everything about Penny's apartment is perfect - I left this magical place feeling calm, relaxed and bronzed knowing I have to come back and would highly recommend it to anyone.

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My sincere apologies Penny for sending such a late review of your beautiful apartment. I spent two weeks on my own in this exquisite, tastefully furnished property. I fully agree with all the comments made in other reviews so it would be pointless to repeat what has already been said. Chantelle, the housekeeper, was absolutely charming and nothing was too much trouble for her. I am returning to stay during November/December this year to a beautiful apartment in the same complex, which I viewed and booked before my departure. The only reason I have not booked at “Ocean Blue” is because I prefer to travel mid week , when it is quieter, and “Ocean Blue” is from Saturday to Saturday – I did this when I stayed at Settlers Beach (which is about to be rebuilt) and I prefer the flexibility of days to travel.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone. I have been coming to Barbados at the same time of year for over 10 years and love the Island more and more each time I stay.

Ocean Blue is truly a wonderful apartment.

  • 5 of 5
Ocean Blue is set in the wonderful complex of Glitter Bay which has a lovely gardens and the apartment is just steps from the beach and for those used to 5 star accommodation this is the place for you.
We thought long and hard about where to stay in Barbados and when we return which we shall,this is where we will come to.
Penny has thought about the furnishing very carefully and the equipment that is needed and no expense has been spared leading to a truly relaxing and worry free holiday.
The location is fantastic the people at Glitter Bay are friendly and nothing is to much trouble
I would recommend Ocean Blue to anyone.
Thank you Penny we will be booking again.

First Class in every way

  • 5 of 5
I together with my husband and 12 year old daughter stayed at Ocean Blue for 11 nights. We have never stayed in apartment before but have travelled to the Caribbean before but always stayed in five star hotels - which we will not do again! The apartment is absolutely stunning, so well equipped with everything you desire and when you are there, you do feel it is your apartment rather than a rented apartment. It was lovely having two bathrooms and two beautiful large bedrooms rather than one room at a hotel. The Glitter Bay complex is so well run and it certainly felt like a hotel complex rather than just renting an apartment. The bar is excellent for snacks at lunch time and drinks after you head off the beach, which is also stunning! You get allocated a sunbed for the duration of your stay which is a great system so no getting up at 6 a.m. together with complimentary towels! The gardens are beautiful and our daughter loved feeding the monkeys every morning, so we got through lots of bananas! The staff at reception were so helpful booking taxis, recommendations for various trips/restaurants it really could not have been better/easier. The view from Ocean Blue, which I would go as far as saying is one of the best in the complex, is stunning and we enjoyed sitting on the beautiful balcony watching the sunsets whilst sipping our champagne!
I also have to mention the owner, Penny, was incredibly helpful from the moment we made the booking through to when we were departing. There was a very helpful fact sheet also left in the apartment so nothing had been forgotten. The housekeeper kept the apartment spotlessly clean and cooked us a lovely meal on our first evening. The driver Penny uses to collect you from the airport was also fantastic and we used him (Dave) for all our trips and going to restaurants in the evenings.
So a very big thank you to Penny for an amazing holiday and we certainly will be returning as it was the best holiday we have had in the Caribbean and this was our 9th trip so have had lots to compare it with!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Virginia,

Thank you so much for your encouraging words. I am glad you had such a great family holiday and have booked again for next year. Many of our guests are repeat families who book almost every year.

It is encouraging to know you really liked the apartment and felt it well equipped, when we try so hard to get it right, and always try to act on guests suggestions. Recently a guest asked for child cutlery and crockery, also a small step for the bathroom for her little one to stand on. We have now purchased these items. We like guests to get the feeling they are at home, most people report this is the case. Ocean Blue is a special place with and amazing view you never forget.

Glitter Bay is a resort that feels safe and with a good security presence one feels comfortable. Often a worry when one reads the press and it is a part of the world you have not visited before.

If you have an amazing images or a special tropical picture you would like to share with us, please do send it.

Thank you again for your kind words,

Penny

Barbados, perched in the sea to the east of the Windward Islands is wonderful holiday destination with natural attractions all of its own: acres of rolling green sugar cane fields, a breathtaking coastline of soft sandy beaches lapped by calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean on the west and expanses of wild surf crashing onto the wide sandy beaches of the Atlantic east coast; exotic trees and shrubs such as banyan, mahogany, flamboyant and poinsettia. As you drive across the island you glimpse fine, colonial-style plantation houses and come across villages of houses brightly painted in classic Caribbean colours, surrounded by garden of frangipani and hibiscus. Barbados is a paradise island,. You can enjoy every type of water sport, water skiing, sailing, diving and paragliding. The snorkeling all along the beach is excellent and you may even see a turtle! Windsurfing is available on the south coast side of the island. Game fishing and boats for hire can all be arranged.
