We spent a week at the South Gap Hotel. We enjoyed our stay and I would suggest it to anyone who isn't sensitive to noise.
The staff! Everyone was very friendly and accommodating to our requests. They provided suggestions, directions, and were willing to help and prompt to do so when we asked. This includes not only the front desk, but the bartenders and other staff as well.
The location: There isn't a beach right in front of the hotel, but the view is still great (you won't get a good sunset shot though). It's within a short walking distance from two beaches Sandy (Worthing) and Dover. Sandy beach has a great sand bar and tons of sea turtles to see.
Not as good:
Again the location: This hotel is a very active nightlife scene and even has the portable police processing center in front of it (we never felt unsafe, but I think it was more so for the drunks). Every night there was some level of noise with it peaking on Saturday night until 4 a.m. We aren't sensitive to noise so we slept through it pretty well for all but that night.
Neutral, but noted:
The restaurant was one of the better values nearby for breakfast. The food was good and not terribly expensive. The Bajan bakes are a mix between a cinnamon muffin and a donut for reference :)
Amenities: Nothing at the hotel blew me away, but everything they had was sufficient for a nice stay. The bed was average, but not uncomfortable which is the most important thing to me. They had a microwave, fridge, tabletop hot plates, pots/pans, and cooking utensils. A nice balcony too.
