“Great Hotel, Location, Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This hotel is located right across the street from Accra Beach and about 15 minutes from the airport. Upon arrival you are greeted with a eucalyptus towel and fruit or rum punch.
The room was clean and serviced everyday, with a fully equipped kitchenette and balcony facing the sea. (Not sure if this is true for all rooms.) We did not eat at the restaurant on-site, but heard good things about it.

The location of this hotel can't be beat. Just 10 minutes from Bridgetown by car and 2-3 minutes from the Gap as well.

The checkout process could be vastly improved, but then again who wants to leave Barbados?

The best holiday ever...if you want to have a warm welcome, consistant excellent customer service from cleaners to reception (Troy) to bar (Sean aka stilt man) to breakfast staff (Jane ) and not forgetting chef, amazing pancakes. Look no further than this little gem of a hotel.
If it's for a romantic getaway, family break like us, or simply a relaxing break with friends make this your hotel of choice if you want true customer service..Veronica all of your team are outstanding well done.
This hotel is ideally placed 10mins (bus)from Bridgetown,10mins (bus)from St Lawrence gap for restaurants/nightlife. Across the road from Rockly beach, with a lovely boardwalk/ children's playground. Play area next to hotel, supermarket 2 mins away...miles and miles of stunning beaches. Try your hand at surfing. Enjoy dinner on the beach with fantastic restaurants.
If your looking for a beautiful island with unspoilt beaches, wonderful scenery, exquisite food not forgetting the fantastic Barbadians, Barbados is the place for you. We won't be staying elsewhere on our next trip but South Beach...We thank you and all your staff for making our stay with you so memorable "home away from home" ps..see you soon.

Room Tip: 4th floor for sea view, 1 bedroom gives you that bit more space.

Our party of 18 friends and family stayed at South Beach resort for our wedding. We could not fault the hotel at all. Rooms are clean and well equipped. Staff go 'the extra mile' to assist. Hotel food is excellent. Location is amazing. The hotel staff arranged our wedding buffet in the evening. I have nothing but praise for the staff at South Beach

Having spent 2 fantastic weeks at this hotel in May/June 2014, we can't find a single thing to complain about. The rooms are spacious, beds comfy, air con quiet and works adequately. Kitchen fully equipped (not that we used it!). Pool does what it says on the tin, not huge but quite sufficient . Loungers clean and comfortable. Breakfast tasty and we'll served by excellent staff. (Jane you got Jazzies vote for the best Hot Chocolate !).Location is superb just across the road from RockleyBeach, where you are sure to encounter Chicken George,aka Jason,who will serve you with great snacks and drinks. Very close to some lovely eateries and Chilli Moo's ice cream parlour. All in all a fantastic trip and one which will be repeated very soon.

This is the second time we have visited this hotel and we still love coming here. We were part of a large group who were over for a wedding. Even though the actual ceremony wasn't at the hotel, they did organise an evening meal for us at the hotel, which was perfect. As most people have commented, Rodney and his staff are so friendly, which make the stay all the more special. The hotel isn't on the beach front and you have to cross a relatively busy road to get to the beach, but the cars will always stop to let you cross. I went with two children and my parents in their 80s to the beach and never felt unsafe crossing the road.
The rooms are clean and the maids do an excellent job everyday. The cocktails from the bar are gorgeous, there is also a daily happy hour.
The chef's specials are also worth a try at lunchtime as they are reasonably priced and taste lovely.
Would I go back - absolutely.

I've just returned from a fantastic holiday to Barbados staying at the South beach Hotel. We were welcomed with a cold fruit/rum punch and ice cold flannels, lovely and cooling. Checking in was quite fast. We had a big room on the 4th floor with a balcony overlooking the sea with fabulous views. The room was fully equipped with a good kichenette, large bedroom with a huge bed, larger than kingsize. We had a lovely bathroom with jacuzzi bath and shower. The air conditioning was great or you could just have the ceiling fan on if you preferred, bedroom and lounge/ kitchen. The room was cleaned daily and the standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel was very high. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would say I wasn't keen on was the busy road right in front of the hotel though you only had to stand at the side of the road waiting and the traffic would stop and let you cross. I would certainly recommend this hotel

Our family had an enjoyable stay at South Beach Hotel. The staff were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. The room facilities were sufficient and the cooling AC particularly appreciated. The hotel is situated within close proximity to shops and restaurants. The beach is a stones throw away, which is handy, although the waves tended to look a little rough and I would recommend entering the water at a calmer beach.

Would definitely consider staying there again!
