Maxwell Beach Condos vs. Sandy Surf Condos

Hi...My family and I are travelling to Barbados in January. We are extremely conflicted with where to stay. We are looking at either the Maxwell Beach Condos or Sandy Surf Condo Apt. Beach is huge for us! We are also looking for an active area with lots for little ones to do - Kayak, tennis, gold, etc.

Please help.

Both Condos are in good areas with great beaches. I have only walked past them but they both look equally as good.

"We are also looking for an active area with lots for little ones to do - Kayak, tennis, gold, etc."

Actually unless you go to an all inclusive with a "kiddy club" you'll have to find the activities, which are not all in one place. If you go to "things to do" on the left side of the page you'll find 111 recommended places and reviews by people who have experienced them. Not much if any kayaking available, just put kayaking in the search box and you'll find some posts and comments.

Tennis you'll find in hotels, there are tennis courts at Rockley Golf Club, you can rent court time there.

Any of the Condos are great!. I will also suggest looking into the Dover Christ Church Area. The Dover beach is a superb beach and then you have the famous St.Lawrence Gap right on your doorstep.

Thank you. Have you been to Rockley? Is it a good resort. Perhaps we should consider staying there.

Perhaps give an idea of your budget and requirements. Are you looking for a 1 bedroom apartment?

Have you done a search on Owner Direct?

They may be some more options on here.

Sapphire Beach

White Sands

Both of these are on Dover Beach which has a lot more activities than at Maxwell Beach. They are both at the quiet end of the Gap.

We usually stay at Rockley but based on your criteria for a beach Rockley is slightly in land and not on a beach. Below are Self Catering Web sites for rentals on barbadosrockleyvacations.com/mapandinfo.htm
