“Great Value, Great Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The service at this hotel is incredible! The staff was all very pleasant and cordial. The location was in the center of all the night clubs and restaurants on the Gap and within walking distance to the main road to take public transportation or a cab. The rooms were clean and spacious along with a kitchenette and sitting area. The view was INCREDIBLE. It was a short walk to the beach from this hotel.
Overall, made our trip to Barbados memorable and pleasant. They even gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne when they asked us why were there and we told them for our anniversary!!!! Loved it!!!

A great place to stay in the heart of the action in St Lawrence Gap. The view was awesome and the service was impeccable - special mention must be made of Annalee and Zola who were extremely helpful throughout my stay. Recommended for those that love the lime light as well as for those that just want a relaxing time.

We had an amazing time at the hotel. The views from the balcony were fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay and the staff, location, and hotel were all fantastic. We only have the best things to say and I have already started telling friends and coworkers that they need to visit and stay at the South Gap Hotel.

The free breakfast included during the construction was great. Any small noises made during the construction was easily ignored and the breakfast was fantastic.

I only have positive things to say and thanks for the great time!

THe location for the South Gap view is incredible and accessible. The rooms are a dream. I stayed in a superior studio and everything is just as described. They are identical to the photos on the hotel's website. I would definitely visit there again!

Room Tip: The 3rd floor is amazing as you have an ocean and pool size view.

As a frequent traveller I must say this is one of the most enjoyable stay I've had at hotel. I mean I have stayed at plush five stars hotels and to be honest this hotel is right up there with them. THe best feature of this hotel is its staff.Rose and Analee go out of their way to ensure you are well taken care of..from your tours, to taxis to your breakfast. The warmth these guys provide is second to none and that's good because you feel right at home. The views from the room are breathtaking and you literally wake up to the sound of the ocean every day as its literally outside of your room? The rooms are cleaned daily and the breakfast menu quite extensive with some lovely food. I recommend the stewed cod.. That was a delight.

I would recommend the South Gap to anyone looking for a great time in Barbados,great access to transport and a fantastic night life.you are literally in the middle of the tourist entertainment and no need to travel to go clubbing or for a meal

If you're looking for a great break, some of the best hotel staff you will find in BArbados, give this hotel a try. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Try the stew Cod at breakfast and utilise the help available from the staff
