We spent 2 x weeks at the South Gap Hotel and really enjoyed our stay, its right in the middle of The Gap which is THE place to stay on Barbados with all the bars & restaurants.

I would recommend this hotel to everyone as we had a wonderful time here. What you see in their web page is exactly what is there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. When we arrived they had given us a second floor room,as there was no lift this was a problem for me. I cannot climb too many stairs...

We are huge fans of Barbados, having stayed each June for the past three years and no doubt, i am sure, we will be back again next year. We booked this hotel without reading any of the reviews one month before departure and only then did we read about the South Gap Hotel. We decided to go with an open...

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...
