#9 of 11 hotels in St. Lawrence Gap
Located on the beautiful south coast of Barbados in Christ Church, the all-suite Divi Southwinds Beach Resort is a casual Caribbean retreat. Divi Southwinds lies along a wide stretch of soft white beach and gentle waves, and is uniquely divided by the St. Lawrence Gap-a lively street, home to restaurants, nightlight and local vendors. An intimate collection of one-bedroom suites is steps from scenic Dover Beach and offers stunning ocean views. Behind the St. Lawrence Gap, over one hundred spacious one- and two-bedroom suites surround a sparkling freshwater pool and feature tropical garden views. All suites at the Divi Southwinds feature oversized private patios or balconies perfect for a sunrise breakfast, fully equipped kitchens, king-sized beds, and sleeper sofas.

First room allocated was depressing, dark and nothing like the website pictures. I asked to move rooms but was told “the hotel is full” however when I offered to pay extra a room became available! We had a problem with the air-conditioning unit in the second room and had no AC for 24 hours. The reception staff were helpful and always friendly with getting it fixed but everything just takes so long. Beach bar staff rather unhelpful and unfriendly compared to the lovely reception staff. No beach service at all. I was refused a drink at the beach bar on our first day because I didn’t have a face mask on (On the beach, in the sand, in the open air). Many staff had their masks under their chin (don’t blame them in this heat) so they shouldn’t refuse to serve guests in a covid safe environment. I saw the same guy serving other people with no masks so maybe he just decides on the day! I asked for a beach umbrella to be told “they are not usually provided” despite two large groups of Americans getting them every day. I was sent off to look for “the Rasta by the pool” to try to get an umbrella but nowhere to be found so we gave up. just felt very unwelcome and almost an imposition to the staff who just don’t seem to value customers or have any grasp on customer service. It took over an hour to get a club sandwich on the one occasion we attempted to eat on the beach. One would have hoped that the last 20 months had changed peoples attitudes in a country that relies so heavily on tourism but clearly that was optimistic! It was as if the hotel reception staff and the beach restaurant team have totally different attitudes, perhaps they are not the same company. St Lawrence Gap area is rather run down and very quiet. There are a handful of restaurants but almost all were fully booked in the week around New Year so the few that are open after Covid are clearly doing well. (Highly recommend Primo bistro). All the locals we met were absolutely wonderful. The beach is lovely and we had the unexpected honour of watching a nest of baby turtles hatch very close to our sun loungers! Unfortunately there was nowhere in the area to go for afternoon coffee and it just doesn’t seem geared up for visitors. Maybe it was different pre covid. we probably wouldn’t rush to return to Divi or St Lawrence Gap and will hopefully return to Barbados when we have the budget for Sandy Lane!

It's not just for quarantines, but for vacations now. We had a very nice 1 bedroom unit overlooking the main pool area. There are actually 3 pools. The beach area is very nice with plenty of shade trees and lounge chairs. The unit and the bathroom were very clean. Everything worked in the unit, and the refrigerator and microwave were very useful. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The location is terrific as there are so many restaurants that are an easy walk away. We even received some special treats due to my Divi Vacation Club status. No sales office here so you will not be bothered by any timeshare sales presentations. The Pure Ocean restaurant was also very nice.

We stayed at divi south winds for a 2 week holiday It was a bit last minute as our other holidays had been cancelled due to covid and was booked 10 days prior to arrival so didn’t really do my usual research before booking the hotel. Was very annoyed to find upon arrival that both restaurants on site were closed and due to quarantine for the first 24hours until results were received we were literally stuck for food we had to buy some bread and butter and cereal from the shop on site to feed us and the 2 kids The play park is closed on site so my youngest couldnt play there but the small golf course baskets ball court and tennis courts were open and they had a great time on those. Other than the fact there is no food on site and very few bars and restaurants open on the gap( can imagine pre covid the gap would be thriving) pure ocean restaurant opened up towards the end of our stay and we’ll I’ve gotta say the breakfast and lunch menu they offer is lovely big shout out to the chefs there they can cook the hotel is lovely although the sofa beds could do with some extra cushioning it’s clean and welcoming staff are really friendly and nothing is too much for them. Beach is absolutely spectacular and is by far one of the best we visited. Watch out for the seaweed you can see it coming in from far off in the ocean but make sure your out the water before it hits because it’s a lot. Keep eyes open for the turtles too travelling from the sand to the water very special to watch

Very pleasant stay here. Staff were very pleasant and helpful even though it was my quarantine hotel. The rooms are excellent. The one thing that needs attention is the television provision provision. The picture quality was poor on both TVs in the room. Otherwise a good experience and I look forward to visiting again.
