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.

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

STUNNING BARBADOS GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This rental is really spectacular. My husband and I and two teenage children were all thrilled with the set up. The bedrooms are far enough apart so that you don't feel like you are on top of one another. There is excellent closet and drawer space too. The bathrooms are beautiful. The best part is the outdoor space which overlooks the ocean. It is set up like an outdoor living room and is perfect for hanging out in at night. We cooked in two nights and had our best meals there. The property is gorgeous. The restaurant serves the best cappuccino i have ever had and a delicious lunch. There is an excellent water sport center steps away which we took advantage of. My kids went jet skiing, sea kayak and took out a Hobie Cat. The daily maid service was also great. It made the vacation still feel like a vacation. I would highly recommend this to anyone. It's like being at a hotel,l but having a huge villa that would normally cost you 4x the price at another hotel.

Owner's Response: We really are very appreciative when guests take the time to review the property as it helps others decide if it is for them. It is important potential guests know we have been honest in our descriptions and that the images truly reflect what is there.

We are proud that we can honestly say we only ever had one unhappy person in the seven years we have rented Ocean Blue, this speaks for its self. We work hard to maintain a high standard of comfort and cleanliness.

That guests have a truly happy holiday gives us great pleasure.

Thank you for your kind words.

Penny

SIMPLY THE BEST APARTMENT AT GLITTER BAY.

  • 5 of 5
ROMANCE AND LUXURY WITH AN ADDED TWIST

Cool contemporary and elegant - Ocean Blue is one of the most luxurious and best positioned apartments on the island of Barbados and guests quickly find out why.

Its glorious setting on a mile-long stretch of white sandy beach on the gentle platinum west coast overlooking the Caribbean sea make Ocean Blue one of Barbados most romantic hideaways. There was a time when white sandy beaches and the turquoise Caribbean sea would have been enough to satisfy most of travellers. These days discerning guests are looking for more; that extra special “wow” factor to make the holiday a truly memorable experience. Ocean blue therefore takes luxury to a whole new level and that’s why guests keep returning year after year. We do so we know!

With unique and breath-taking ocean views from the stunning terrace, as well as stylish interiors, this spectacular apartment aspires to be 6 star and has every touch of luxury to make your holiday simply unforgettable. It really is a truly stress free experience in the sun. Penny you have surpassed yourself once again. Thank you.

A WONDERFUL STAY AT OCEAN VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We visited Glitter Bay in September 2013. On arrival the apartment was cool and welcoming, after a shower and a cuppa we were ready to investigate further. The beach is so very close with sun loungers at the ready just waiting for you to relax, complete with a parasol and table identification number. We went for a beach stroll every morning at 06 30 and swam in the sea, then into the pool and back for breakfast on the terrace, a great start to enjoy yet another perfect Barbados day. Whilst on the beach keep a lookout for turtle hatchlings.
No 203 Glitter Bay really does have everything you could need, the living area and bedrooms benefit from air conditioning for when it is hot, hot, hot or ceiling fans if you prefer. We loved the décor, but the terrace overlooking the beach was our most favourite place of all. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in, those fabulous feather pillows and cool crisp linen’s made sleeping just perfect. There is even a blender to crush the ice for your rum punch. It was helpful having the internet, there is TV and plenty of DVD’s to watch, or you can listen to music with your IPod on the docking station.
There was a picnic set, cool box and ready frozen ice blocks for a day out in the Barbadian sunshine, so if you decided not to hire a car collect your BDS coins and go on a bus trip (BD$2) per trip, the yellow busses are noisy but more entertaining, the blue buses a little more calm. Try a Sunday trip out and about with the locals from the bus station in Bridgetown.
Speightstown has a charm of its own, for a wonderful lunch visit L ’Attitude Bar and Grill, (open Tue -Sun, 10 00 -16 00) just beside Juma’s, amazing food, amazing view, amazing music, afterwards go down to the beach about six steps and sleep it off your lunch on one of their own sun loungers complete with parasol. Holetown is a bit closer to Glitter Bay; it has banks, bakery, bars and shopping complex plus cinema.
We really had a wonderful time at Glitter Bay and the apartment was beautiful.
John and Jane

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.
