“Nautilus, Not to Miss!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2010

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at Nautilus for almost a month this past January. The location of this hotel is perfect for any type of traveller as it is close to Bridgetown, but not far from the lively south coast.

The staff at Nautilus are extremely helpful and accomodating. They were always available to answer any and all questions we had about the island.

The rooms were more spacious than we expected. We stayed in a "Standard Apartment" and found it very comfortable.

We will definately be back!

We have spent nine holidays at the Nautilus beach apartments. The apartments are spacious and have everything you need for a superb holiday.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
The views are fantastic overlooking the beach and harbour.
If you want a relaxed holiday on one of the best beaches on the island then you can't beat the Nautilus.
It is close to good restaurants and Bridgetown with frequent bus service which accesses the whole island

This was the first time that my husband and I went to Barbados, it was for our honeymoon.... the beach was so nice and the location of the Beach apartment was just right. The service was excellent. They also assited us in renting a vehicle, being there for the first time we didn't know the whereabouts, but the supervisor was so kind to assit us in renting a vehicle was indeed service to remember. The staff decorated our bedroom and had champagne for us to drink which was quite a surprise. Whenever we decide to travel to Barbados again, we know where we will be staying.

Although the accommodation is Spartan, the BEACH more than makes up for it. The beach is literally at your feet. A convenient grocery store is close by. You can walk to Bridgeport and the exciting St. Lawrence Gap in the evening. The staff were pleasant and helpful.

This is the beach where the locals love to swim, which is exactly what we were looking for. I hate staying at resorts where everyone there is a tourist - you might as well be in Miami beach.

This place was recommended by a local now living in Eastern Canada. We will return - but there are soooo many wonderful places in this world.

For someone like me who loves having a beach right there on my doorstep, morning noon and night this was amazing.
The rooms and decor was quite basic but clean and comfortable, staff were freindly and kind. it's a self catering aparment with fridge feezer, cooker everything you need to be comfortable for your stay.
It's only a bus ride away to the town and in the opposide direction again only a bus ride away to st lawrence gap for the night life. Me and my mate were so in our element, we relaxed and chilled, a small walk down the beach you have a the boat yard which holds daytime entertainment and turns in to a night club in the evening. Wicked!!! i've actually visited 3 years in a row for crop over which is thier carnival season and stay here!!! prices are very reasonable, the perfect location for beach, chill out, night life and main town .

Stayed July 2006

I was looking for a place to spend 2 nights before I boarded a cruise. I didn't want anything too expensive but it must be clean and well located to the harbour.
I contacted the Nautilus Hotel who replied in a timely fashion and I booked with them.

We arrived at the hotel and Betty greeted us and showed us around. Nautilus is right on the beach and provides a small patio with chairs for the guests.
The rooms are basic but clean, air conditioned and with cooking facilities.
The best asset for this hotel is Betty the receptionist who lives on the premises and always has a smile.
Betty knows everything about the island and can recommend restaurants and shopping and couldn't be more helpful..
I highly recommend The Nautilus as clean basic furnished suites and the price cannot be beat!

The Nautilus is a small, older, and no frills place to stay. It is directly on a beautiful beach which was most important for us! The staff were very helpful and the rooms were nice they had a full kitchen, (on a small scale) T.V., a large bathroom, A.C. units, phones and were very comfortable! This place is great for the money! It was just a short cab ride to Bridgetown. It's within walking distance to restaurants, we even ate at a nearby hotel a few times.
If you are going to relax and stay on the beach this is a great place and I highly recommend it!

  • Liked — so close to the beach
  • Disliked — no pool
  • Tips/Secrets — the "Bird's Nest" across the street has great food when it's open!
