We have been to Barbados numerous times, this was our first time at the Magic Isle. Magic Isle Apartments are as basic as they come. Located on the edge of Rockley Beach and the Boardwalk. The staff work very hard to keep the buildings clean, safe and secure. However the buildings are starting to show there age. The kitchenette size... More

We stay here for rest and relaxation. It is on the beach and everything we need is close by. We have been to Barbados 14 times and know our way around. Busses are easy to hop on and make our way up island, Bridgetown and Oistens. Not fancy but lots of room. I just wish the beds were more comfortable... More

This was our third stay at Magic Isle and it was just as good as ever very relaxing, clean on the beautiful Accra beach and the.boardwalk at the end of the garden.The staff are lovely and can't fault a thing. Best place to stay down at Rockley. Would go back in a blink of an eye.

This was our second stay at Magic Isle and we enjoyed it as much as last time. We stayed in the front block on the 4th floor and enjoyed fabulous views and glorious sunsets. The apartments are very spacious and have everything you need for self catering accommodation. The location is perfect. with the beach on your door step, a... More

Professional demeanour and protocol will prevent a right of reply and therefore it is unseemly to refer to members of staff by name - Lancashire lady. Perhaps when you have visited this establishment over 20 years as we have,you might come to understand and appreciate how business like and efficient the staff are , whilst recognising the cultural differences -...

Apartments are spacious, and most have some sort of view of the ocean and beach. A great location, minutes away from lots of restaurants and a mini-mart, seconds away from the ocean. We travelled with a large group, many of whom had stayed here before. The staff were accomodating and definitely had a great sense of humour. I would recommend... More

Not your high end west coast experience, but you'll be no worse off for it , and you won't have had to remortgage to stay here. Clean, spacious, great location, laid back, safe - basic but has all you need. The setting is great as you can stroll to champers, Naru, Tapas ( if you must), just grillin, chill moo's,... More

We've stayed at the Magic Isle previously and you just can't beat the location. If you are looking to be pampered, you need to look elsewhere. The rooms are clean and tidy with a decent kitchenette. You don't need any more and you are only 30 seconds away from one of the best beaches in Barbados. The only issue is... More

Just returned from our second stay at the Magic Isle Apartments.Had a fabulous time....but the only person to spoil our stay was the abrupt,miserable receptionist,Michelle.Upon booking (via the internet) we were told that we could only be accommodated for 13 nights out of the 14 we required.We accepted that arrangement intending to find alternative accommodation for the last night.However,upon arrival...
