Guest Review

The best place to stay in Barbados.....

For many years Ocean One has been our preferred accommodation whenever we are visiting Barbados. We have already schedule our next visit and look forward to another great vacation.

The units at Ocean One are superior in both location and comfort. Albert and his staff have provided excellent service and have helped us in all aspects of our visits from choice of car rental companies to general information... read more

Sapphire Beach Condominiums is one of the newer luxury beachfront condo properties on the south coast of Barbados very near the well-known hub of activity and dining on St. Lawrence Gap or The Gap as it is commonly known.  Some of these tastefully appointed private residences are offered here for holiday rentals and a few are still available for sale.

Sapphire Beach runs onto Dover Beach which is one of the longer and wider white sand beaches found on the island and has mostly calm waters and is safe for swimming year-round. For the safety of locals and visitors alike there is a daily lifeguard presence as can be identified by the yellow lifeguard hut found there and on many of the other popular swimming beaches. Because of its beauty and popularity, Dover Beach hosts a wide range of both water sport and other beach rental service providers such as SunFish and catamaran sailing, boogey board, snorkel, beach lounges and umbrella rentals to name a few.

The property is located a short 15-minute drive from the airport in the south east and also from the main city Bridgetown in the south west. Barbados is a mostly flat coral island of only 21 by 14 miles (166 square miles) so getting anywhere is a short drive by comparison to most other travel destinations. As a mature holiday destination, the islands infrastructure such as road and road signage are also well developed.
 
Barbados is known for being safe and for the friendliness of its people so getting around and seeing the sights is recommended and locals will be happy to offer directions should you lose your way. Aside from renting a car, visitors can utilize the available public transportation of Government operated Mercedes coaches or the smaller privately owned busses and vans which can take you anywhere for no more than US$1.00 per trip. Bus stops are located along almost every road and in the case of Sapphire Beach are no more than five minutes' walk away.
 
Through its history Barbados has been a British colony from 1628 to 1966 when it gained its independence as a sovereign island. As such the language spoken is English with a Caribbean flare or dialect referred to as Bajan. Islanders are referred to as Barbadians or Bajans. It functions as a constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy, modeled on the British Westminster system, with Elizabeth II, Queen of England, as head of state, represented locally by the Governor General Sir Elliott Fitzroy Belgrave its seventh in that role. The Prime Minister, currently the Honorable Freundel Stuart, functions as the head of government. The island has had a history of stability both in its governance and its economic management making it an ideal location for investment. Unlike many of the other Caribbean islands, it has its own currency which is the Barbados dollar and is pegged to the US dollar with an exchange rate of 2 to 1 i.e. BDS$ 2 = 1 $US.  Google Map and also Google Earth Map - GPS COORDINATES:

Things to do
 
Aside from the facilities of Sapphire Beach there are numerous things to do in the surrounding areas of Dover, St Lawrence Gap and Oistins nearby. On Dover beach in front there are a number of water sport providers with SunFish and Catamaran sailing, boogey board, snorkel, beach chair/lounge rentals and more. There are also a wide selection of restaurants within easy walking distance as well as bars, nightclubs and gift shops.
 
Oistins is an outdoors location 10 minutes' drive away famous for fresh local seafood prepared as you watch with great bars, music, gift shopping and is popular with locals and visitors alike. Further afield we highly recommend you visit Rolli's Restaurant and Bar located just outside of the city centre Bridgetown, contact 425-5674. This family owned and run restaurant features ocean views and a fantastic selection of both local and international cuisine. There are also a number of gift and local craft shops nearby and even a local cigar company.
 
The island offers many activities from submarine and coastal catamaran trips to cave and historic plantation tours. There is also a wildlife reserve and nature tours such as the Welchman Hall Gully. Feel free to ask us for recommendations based on your preferences such as coach tours or more active ones such as the Zip Line adventures where you glide in harness over one of the most scenic natural gullies on island.
