This was our first time in Barbados and will never return. To sum up the hotel honestly I would describe this as a 1 star with a very shabby entrance right in the middle of a sleezy, run down area ,with locals who are drunk on the local rum and offering drugs and prostitution. Once at your room the views...

Our hotel is a 3 star property which is located in the heart of St. Lawrence Gap and offers full ocean views from every room. St. Lawrence Gap is an area that is filled with restaurants,...

Just been to Barbados and stayed at South Gap for a 4th time. The cleanliness and hospitality are FAB especially the receptionists who always greet you with a smile and happy to help and share local knowledge. We did eat a bar snack in the hotels restaurant which was excellent, reasonably priced and in a lovely spot overlooking the sea....

This was our 4th stay at the South Gap and yet again the hotel did not fail to impress. From arrival to departure we again found the staff very friendly and most helpful. The hotel is spotlessly clean and is ideally located for travelling to other areas on the island. Salvio’s, the onsite restaurant, is excellent, both in value for...

Lovely hotel, really nice helpful staff, very clean room including the bathroom and cooking area, great food in the hotel restaurant/beach bar and a nice pool. We had a room facing the sea, and the view out of our hotel verandah was just beautiful. What more could you want? It was a real pleasure to stay there and at a...

Me and my wife stayed here from the 16th to 26th 2012. We booked the hotel because it was low cost and central. We are not one for all inclusive style places because we like to eat and drink out, whilst travelling around. Shortly before leaving, we decided to marry in Barbados but just round the corner from here. Accomadation...

The view cannot be beat from this hotel! Our room looked right out onto the ocean! The room itself was very nice, with a little kitchenette and hot plate, sofa, bed, and bath. The pool was small but clean and there are a good number of loungers, even if there's not a ton of space to spread them out. Along...

If you're on a budget looking for some nightlife and beach fun this is the place to be. It is ideally located in St Lawrence Gap, right outside of McBrides and all the other nice nightclubs. On arrival we were given a card for a complimentary drink, and since we arrived very early we left our bags in the downstairs...

This hotel would be great if it were somewhere else. It's right in the middle of St. Lawrence Gap. Music booms into your room until 4am and when I say Boom, I mean Boom.

This is not the Ritz. But it is a basic, good value and friendly hotel that has spectacular 180 deg sea views from balconies on every room. How many shades of blue are there? The staff were very helpful. It's a very short walk to a sandy beach. The location at St Lawrence Gap has a good range of bars...
