While there are certainly many fine establishments offering convenience and fine food along this eight-block stretch on the south end of the island, this once family-friendly location is now so full of criminal activity that I find it unsafe to visit in the evening. In my first 24 hours at St. Lawrence Gap, I was approached by four marijuana salesmen... More

Just a short drive from Accra Beach Hotel and Spa is this gem. Awesome place which is full of restaurants, hotels and bars! We visited for dinner on our last night in Barbados and this led to our biggest regret...we should have visited before as there were so many great options. Definitely a place to visit and right on the... More

Very cool, happening little place. Great location just off the main road , full of hotels, beaches, bars, restaurants. Action goes on well into the morning hours. Sorta reminded me of a mini New Orleans and Borbon Street. Ask for a room away from the Main Street if you don't want to be kept up all night. We stayed at... More

Originally visited 23 years ago, yes a long time has passed however, as it was excellent then we were expecting even better this time. What a sad disappointment ! The place is a dump, full of beggars in the street and loud karaoke bars at night. Filthy streets, stinking bins and lots of closed down businesses. Didn't feel safe going... More

It's not as wild and crazy as people claim. We found it pretty quiet at nights. I would say the Oistins area is a little crazier. it's basically safe to walk the strip at night, but of course be careful. there are usually lots of people around

Good for local food and bars on a night but also during the day. Meet the locals and seek out all the local beaches along the way. Lovely views and photo points. Walking out is no problem and everyone is friendly.

Best place to be as there's lots of life. It's the busiest place to stay and lots to do as the bars and restaurants keep you full up of food and rum punch !!! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Barbados. You will love it. Something for everyone. The locals are lovely and friendly. Just remember to barter.

Fun area with a local downtown feel. Lot's of restaurants, bars, and street vendors. Took a bit to realize that things there didn't get rolling til after 8pm, but went well into the late late hours. Good times!
