“Awesome service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

I just love this place, close to the beach, pool open all night and excellent service. I will sure recommend this place as a top spot for a vacation or weekend party with friends. The staff are very helpful in finding ways to make your trip in Barbados a fun filled one.

We had a marvellous 4 day stay in Barbados at the Southern Surf Beach Apt.

The apartment was big with all the necessary amenities, wonderful interiors, very good service and all necessities you may need are easily accessible, i.e., walking distance. Every thing in the kitchenette worked and we were able to purchase from the supermarket and cook all our meals.

During our stay at the Southern Surf, I heard little external noise. No hallway noise made its way into the room, and almost no traffic noise.

Service at the Southern Surf was fast and friendly. All the staff were helpful in recommending dinner and entertainment spots.

Southern Surf has a pool which is ideal for a nice swim after taking in the ocean.

Very reasonably priced as well.

We were extremely pleased with our recent stay at Southern Surf. The room was spacious and well-appointed, we had a good view of the beach, and the kitchen was a great addition. Exceptional wi-fi kept got us our home town newspaper and radio stations, and the TV (which we didn't use that much) brought us the NBA playoff games involving our local teams. By far the best part of our stay was the front desk staff, Audra in particular. She arranged to have a rental car come to the hotel, gave us good suggestions about what to see on the island, and was great with dinner reservations. We'd be happy to visit again.

We have visted Barbados dozens of times over the past 20 years, and discovered The Southerrn Surf 7 years ago..... We have not stayed anywhere else since.The location is perfect, the value unbeateble, and the service second to non! Lara, Audra and their staff WILL move mountains to ensure you has the best holiday ever.We have stayed there 6 times and have rebooked for Oct. 2013.

This was our second time staying at Southern Surf. For us, it’s all about location and convenience.
Southern Surf is literally across the road from Rockley Beach (also called ‘Accra Beach’). Two minute walk, if that! Southern Surf only has 14 rooms. They are spacious and airy with white tile floors. The rooms are air conditioned with television. All rooms have a balcony with an ocean view. There is a pool in the back with beach chairs and picnic tables painted white. Very pleasant. Great place to relax.
Rooms have a compact kitchenette (with fridge and stove) fully stocked with all utensils, dishes, coffee maker and electric kettle, where you can prepare your meals and enjoy your breakfast on the balcony facing the ocean.
Southern Surf’s lobby is compact, with a wide assortment of beach-read books to borrow (or leave behind), a couch and computer with printer, connected to the Internet that guests can use for a small fee. There is WiFi, free-of-charge – in all the rooms.
The staff is wonderful. Audra and Rachel are friendly and helpful. They will arrange taxis, car rentals and excursions. They will also make helpful suggestions. Always pleasant with a welcoming smile. Andrew, the owner, will even pitch in and help carry luggage! How many hotel owners do that!
Freshly-laundered beach towels are available at the front desk, free of charge.
Southern Surf will also provide, on request, a local cell phone that you can use – you just ‘pay as you go’ and top up as needed. No expensive roaming charges. It’s handy to have with you as you travel around the island and a great convenience if you need to talk to family (or check in with the office) back home.
There is no restaurant or bar in the hotel. No need. Good restaurants, reasonably priced, are all within walking distance, include Bert’s Bar next door (a sports bar run by a Canuck), the Tiki Bar across the road (right on the beach), Chefette Restaurant (like McDonalds) & the Barbecue Barn (like Swiss Chalet), and Just Grillin’ (our favourite).
No need for a taxi since everything is within walking distance from Southern Surf (including Scotia Bank and a Pharmacy), but if you need a taxi there is a taxi stand nearby. There is also an outdoor mini-mall that has a food court (with half dozen eateries), five minute walk away. The 9 to 9 Convenience Store is there and stocks all your food needs, including alcohol .
The other guests when we were at Southern Surf were mainly Brits and Canadians. It is a mixed crowd – some young families, some people soon to retire and some people who are happily retired. Everyone is pleasant.
Friendly, clean, relaxed and safe is how we’d describe Southern Surf.
We had friends who stayed at a more expensive hotel (not as conveniently located) who saw our room and said ours was nicer than their hotel.
We’ll be back again for sure. We booked last June (2012) for winter (2013). We highly recommend Southern Surf.

This was my first trip to Barbados, partially business and partially vacation. AA managed to misplace my bag at MIA, and, without the help of the staff at the hotel, I would still be waiting for it. Rooms were clean and well equipped. The kitchen allowed us to do breakfast in our room. The beach, Tiki Bar and Champers across the street kept us tanned and well fed. It was a wonderful experience, and, again, it is impossible to say enough that's positive about the incredible staff.

Room Tip: There is no restaurant or fitness center at the hotel, but the beach is across the street, and excel...

Southern Surf is everything it is cracked up to be! We spent 12 nights there in March 2013 after reading all of the rave reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. It is the #1 hotel for value in Barbados for a reason; the room was spacious, very clean, comfortable with good A/C and powerful shower. There is also a kitchen which was handy for breakfast and all rooms have balconies facing Accra Beach. There is a swimming pool to the rear of the building but we only used this once as the beach was so amazing.

The location is perfect, only 15-20 minutes by taxi from the airport and positioned directly opposite Accra Beach (literally 10 seconds walk to pure white sands!), which is one of the best on the whole island! There is also a beach bar called “Tikki Bar” just opposite, which serves amazing cocktails and tasty bar food.

The best thing about Southern Surf however, is the staff. We were greeted by Audra and Rachael who were so friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They kindly arranged several day trips for us and recommended many restaurants and bars. We were sad to leave and have already provisionally booked for 2014!

Room Tip: All rooms are similar, there is no lift though so perhaps not on a higher floor (unless your athleti...
