“Very comfortable stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Just completed six days here at South Gap. I was totally blown away by the service and the standard of the room. The breakfast plan menu had many variations, so I basically ate something slighty different each morning. The room was refreshed daily, including bath towels. The receptionists were helpful and all staff were pleasant. I would really like to thank Jason at the bar for a wonderful time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't have "deep" pockets!

One of the best views from a balcony i have ever had, good accommodation and a great central location for bars,restaurants and beaches. Can be noisy at night as right in the middle of the gap,so get involved in it.

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean veiw

This hotel is a lovely hotel, lovely people down in the bar/resturant area.
Just a walk away from the beach.
Few shops close by, restaurants a stone throw away.
It is quite loud at night time as your are on the strip and the music is noisy at night time.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back of the hotel, as its very noisy at night time at the front, right thro...

Well from start to finish holiday stay was great everyone so helpful and friendly from management Cecile to Rose, Monique (was even helpful before we left England with emails to & from Monique thank you) and the rest of the girls at the reception desk, security man and housekeepers would certainly go back at drop of a hat. Yes it is in a noisy part of St Lawrences Gap but never bothered us ideal location in fact.Was there for husbands 50th on Valentines day (sorry for late review). Would also highly recommend Teds Tours look on Utube book before you go its a full days trip but well worth it and what a charactor!! Hope to go back soon Thanks South Gap for making my husbands birthday special :) x

I had a wonderful staycation experience for my birthday at the South Gap Hotel. I received a lovely bottle of complimentary red wine. The room was exceptionally clean with an ocean view balcony. The view was breathtaking as I walked onto the balcony. The hotel has a fully functional kitchenette and bathroom with running warm water. The noise from the neighbouring bars and night clubs were not an issue. Would not recommend to someone seeking a quiet vacation. The pool was nice, very cool during the day, and clean. At the end of my stay I got lucky with my partner on the slot machines, with no prior experience, which was fun. I had an amazing birthday and would definitely staycation at South Gap Hotel in the near future.

After visiting on my own in November 2013 I returned with my girlfriend in June 2014 for another lovely stay at the South Gap Hotel. All the staff members were professional and very friendly on both visits, from the cleaners to the receptionists and security guard.
The rooms are comfortable with a beautiful view to wake up with.
The resteraunt downstairs serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Good way to start your day with the B&B option.
It can get noisy in the night time with clubs on St Lawrence Gap, as a non drinker this didn't bother us much. If you're not tired enough to sleep by the evening then you're not doing it right!
Plenty to do on the island and the south coast is a good central location. We would both highly recommend!

Where do I start, first off on arrival we were greeted by Cecile the manager and she hand us a warm welcome, then lead us to room 119 then oh dear my new wife started crying because basically it was not the room we were sold by the travel agent, we were told there was 3 types of room available so as it's our honeymoon we requested a one bed suite, only to be told by Cecile that they only sell one type of room, then bless her heart Cecile did everything she could to change room for us, and move us to room 220 which we were over the moon with, and she even decorated the room and gave us a bottle of champers, could not fault anything about the room or hotel bar and restaurant very reasonable, bar staff rose, jay (the cocktail wizard) and jerry ( oops my arm slipped) made us feel so welcome , pool excellent and clean, front of house girls friendly, noise yeah there is some but never bothered us, all in all a fabulous honeymoon made by Cecile and her team, thank you all x
