“Wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at the Southern Surf Apartments. Previously we had stayed at the Hilton, which was nice but singificantly more expensive. After relatives recommended the Southern Surf Apartments, we decided to give them a try. They are clean, neat, and have a great location immediately across from Accra Beach. They are also located within walking distance from restaurants, the boardwalk, convenience stores, and small shops. The two ladies who manage the front desk are above and beyond helpful/honest/kind. They are available for all types of help: even renting cell phones, using the internet/printing boarding passes, organizing tours, and providing helpful/honest hints about getting around the island. They even gave my husband and I a bottle of wine/card for our anniversary! We couldn't recommend staying here more!

Room Tip: No elevator but higher rooms have a nice view of the beach.

We returned from another wonderful stay at Southern Surf. Location and convenience are A1. Rockley Beach is literally across the road. Restful, comfortable and safe is how I’d describe Southern Surf.

There are only 12 rooms and 4 floors. Hidden in the back, is a wonderful crystal clean swimming pool with plenty of lounge chairs. Best kept secret. Hardly ever used! Everyone is across the road at the beach.

Each room has a balcony and every balcony has an ocean view. What a great way to start every morning...stretched out looking at the sea, or reading or just relaxing while sipping tea. You are so close to the ocean you can hear the waves from your room, but once you slide close the patio door – silence and air conditioned comfort.

The apartment size kitchen is compact and fully stocked. Two blocks away, there is a convenience store that sells groceries (including booze), and lots of good, reasonably-priced restaurants within a three to five minute walk.

The rooms are clean, bright and spacious. Each room has a room safe – handy for storing notepads and iPads.

The staff is attentive, without being intrusive, friendly while remaining respectful. Audra and Rachael always have a ready smile to greet you. They are a veritable Wikipedia on Barbados, with fun suggestions on what to see and helpful suggestions on where to go to get things done (for example, eyeglass repair and haircut) and insider suggestions on good local dining places. The support staff of Maggie, Cheryl and Sondra keep the rooms clean and Ken keeps the grounds tidy. There is a security guard at night keeping watch so safety is not a concern.
Southern Surf is constantly making improvements and upgrades this year included new televisions and sleek new patio chairs on the balcony.

My favourite service they offer are “pay as you go” cell phones available for rental, so you can stay in touch with family and clients abroad with NO expensive roaming charges. And after each call, you can quickly check your balance, and top up as need be. It’s a Brilliant service. There is a computer/Internet and printer (handy for printing your boarding passes) in the lobby available for a nominal charge.

Please note: there is no elevator and no bar. So no noisy drunks or loud music when you want to go to sleep. And if you need a hand with your luggage, someone is always ready to help.

Book early to avoid disappointment. Repeat visitors (this was our third stay) are very common. And based on our experience, it’s easy to see why. We booked in September for April.
Whether you are travelling alone, with a family, seniors or young couples or not-so-young couples, Southern Surf is clean, comfortable and makes for a great getaway, A1 location and excellent value. Highly recommend Southern Surf.

We made an almost spontaneous decision to travel to Barbados...on a very busy weekend of Rally Barbados...we were fortunate to have available accommodation at Southern Surf Apt Hotel. The location was excellent....close to a popular stretch of coastline that is bustling with activites and all conveniences within walking distance....restaurants...bars....beautiful beach and grocery. The staff at this locale were so accommodating and helpful and at short notice shifted around their rental commitments to ensure that we got connecting rooms. The rooms were crisp and clean...decor very 'bajan' in design...and fully equipped kitchenette for our morning in house breakfasts....easy enough....when grocery and convenience store only a short walk away....just lovely....will certainly recommend this local....and can assure we will be back....rhank yoy to Audra and Rachel for hour warmth and hospitality. ...you both are "Ambassadors" for your establishment

The staff are very welcoming and accommodating. We arrived early and left late and it was not a problem. Audra and Rachel were so nice and made us feel right at home. The apt was well kept, had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend the apts to others and stay here again.

Had a great visit because of Audra and Rachel. The facilities are well kept and inviting. I enjoyed the pool area in the evenings, with the great variety of tropical plants and deep swimming pool. Our room was room #4 on the second floor with a great view of beach. Great A/C unit, quiet all the time, kept us cool and collect. We never had to worry about transport, money exchange, and asking questions was never abtrusive, they always smiled, even the guard and housekeeping smiled. Smiling & laughing there is contagious. That's what a great vacation is all about. The only detriment was the high volume of bus and congestion on highway 7, the exhaust & noise from the vehicles was annoying. We slept like babies because we wore ear plugs. Being across the street from the Tiki Bar and watching the sunsets and enjoying their great food made the Southern Surf Beach Apartments the place to be in Christ Church. Just sprint across the street and your on one of the best beaches in Barbados.
