St. Lawrence Gap is a location with every facility.The Southern Palms is is a hotel of great charm and character, with assorted buildings in spacious grounds, facing a fantastic beach. The staff are all helpful, nothing is too much trouble, everyone knows what to do, to the point where the hotel almost appears to run on automatic pilot.

Hotel is only 15 mins drive form the airport, located on a fantastic beach, spotlessly clean everywhere, friendly staff & plenty of choice of places to eat. Loads of room on beach and around pools, not crammed in like some of the neighbouring hotels. Room was big with great balcony & was very well equipped with hair dryer, kettle, iron... More

I stayed here in March of this year. It's a quick trip from the airport, and it's located on St. Lawrence Gap, with several restaurants nearby. I do love the beautiful peachy-pink buildings, and as their website says, almost every room has a view of the beautiful ocean. I had room 141, a corner room with a secluded porch area... More

This is a great hotel, possibly you may expect a little more for the money, but a very good place to go. Excellent location with very accomodating staff and the whole place is kept to a high standard, possibly you may feel it is a bit tired for the level it is graded?

Loved this hotel. Slightly quirky feel, right on the beach and within easy walking distance of all the life on St Lawrence Gap. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the wifi was free if intermittent, the pool area was welcoming. They even managed to cope with almost 60 cricket fans descending for breakfast at once before going to the... More

Stayed at Southern Palms during England's visit to Barbados. Had stopped on St Lawrence Gap before and wanted to do so again as it meant being well located. This place is excellent, on pretty much every level. It's right on the beach which was wonderfully quiet while we were there. Our accommodation was ok, we did have a saver room,... More
