employees were not friendly. air conditioning did not play, the cleaners left without visiting, often came from After seven in the evening! Hotel Room kitchen equipment level really bad, it was not even a bottle opener. In hotel breakfast, birds were jumping on the tables and plates.

GENRALLY STAFF VERY HELPFULL, ACTIVERTIES COULD BE BETTER ORGANISED.. COMFORTABLE BED ;GOOD HOUSE KEEPING STAFF.WE HAD GOOD CHECKIN EXPERIENCE. plenty food choices, on the GAP also small stores to get basic food supplies if you are self catering, Small Island so dependent on imports which are more costly The resort has good garden area so not a concreate jungle . Wonderfull beach on site & great pools. Families should have a lovely time. It is a 3 star resort so do not expect 5 star facilities

Room Tip: High floor pool side have lovely views

We have stayed at Divi Southwinds 6 times now. The hotel is 3 stars, not 5, so I don't know what people on here expect! The hotel is spacious, so you are not ontop of other guests, the beach is amazing, and the beach bar/restaurant is always packed out. The food is excellent also. The cost is just as it is in the rest of Barbados. The staff were always friendly, helpful and when the cleaner missed our room out, we called housekeeping, and she came along immediately. The only down side is the patio door windows need cleaning, as we couldn't see out of ours the entire stay. The beds/pillows were very comfortable, and we always had hot water, whatever time of day it was, for 5 people. The gardens are beautiful, as is the surrounding area. Right on St.Lawrence Gap, and easily within reach of all restaurants along there. Look forward to going back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool, as it is a little quieter

We had a room on the 4th floor with pool view. THe rooms were small but efficient - although small, I liked the fact that the room was separate from the living area and there was a full kitchen with a breakfast bar, no table. Families with kids can really appreciate having the kitchen. The rooms didn't usually get cleaned until later in the afternoon. There was a small road between the hotel and the beach but the beach facilities were part of the hotel and there was a very casual restaurant there. THe water was a bit rough for the kids so the pool was much better.

This Hotel is disgusting , Firstly the attitude of the staff is nothing short of abysmal!! RUDE and uninterested the lady in the towel hut on 29th dec 2012 spent more time making personal calls booking her own car hire then doing her job, she was so so rude and left us waiting until she was ready to hand us a towel without even turning round to look at us. This general attitude can be found at reception too.
If you like water to come out of the tap in the bathroom you will be lucky, I had to have a shave in the kitchen sink !!
If you like a lock on your balcony door (very advisable in barbados ) then you will be hard pushed to find one.

Im very well traveled but can honestly say there is no other hotel I have stayed at that is more disgusting .

Firstly, location is good as its near to bars and restaurants of The Gap.
A huge word of warning! Never accept a room in the annex which is outside of the grounds across the road-these rooms are substandard, poor water supply, damp and generally run down-there is also a issue with noise (from the bars and traffic from road)
In the main resort rooms are very tired and need money spending on them, chipped floor tiles with grubby grouting etc. We had issues with security-the security chain was partially detached, the patio door although looked felt loose and insecure. This was especially an issue as we were on the ground floor.
Wifi in room worked well.
