“Best Stay In Barbados St Lawrence gap!!!!”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

OMG!!! This Hotel was the best stay I've ever had. Its in such a great location, it has the best staff, and its the best value for the money. Everyone was so polite and you have many great bars and restaurants near by. The free wifi was everything and the feel was so homely. I loved it. My room was great, right near the pool and was very clean. Again, the staff was amazing. They were like a family and so polite. I never had any problems asking for anything. They were always on point and they help in anyway that is needed. It was great! It was like i was home and I was very comfortable. I can't say a bad word because my stay was everything!

Room Tip: The first floor rooms are the best hands down!

Just returned back home.. Had 5 nights at Dover Beach Hotel and 5 Nights at the Time Out Hotel...Time Out Hotel is the true winner!! Grate hotel, clean room, large rooms, comfortable beds, perfect location, right next to the Dover Beach... Best Value for the Money.. Grate Staff.... Can only recommand this hotel to everyone.. We were two girls travelling alone.. The Dover Beach Hotell is almost at the end of the main street.. You have to walk a bit alone.. (no hotels, no restaurants... in the area) to get there... And there will be people following you trying to sell you or offer you everything you can imagine... ( we were there in the low season.. it might be different in the main season with crouded of people everywhere...) I felt safer by living at The Time Out Hotel, close to all the restaurants, the beach and also the clubs if you wanna go there. The Staff on the hotel is really profesional and helpfull.... I need to give this hotel 10 out of 10 point!!!

we were pleased to at Time Out as last year it was closed for refit. Great spot across the road from beach, Good little bar cheap beers!!

We have stayed there 3 times, Pierre on reception was very helpful as were all the other staff. Only fault was we has to pay 51B$ to stay in our room until 3pm which we didn't before.

Saturday night at Oistins was better than Fri night as it wasn't so crowded.

My partner and I are staying on the island with relatives but wanted a couple of days to ourself. Booked in here looking for a base close to night life and value for money, as we don't need luxury. Only complaint is lack of accessible plug sockets in the room as they were behind the bed or other cupboards and the waiting staff. Unfortunately it seems the norm in many establishments and shops across the island that people don't smile and there's a gross lack of customer service to the point that straight faces and can't- be-bothered attitude is borderline intimidating. Shame for such a beautiful island.

Well after 12 years we returned to Barbados , having stayed in the time out at the gap twice before were service was 1st class we return to the same hotel. When we arrived bit disappointed to find out the hotel had closed down a few years earlier , though the staff soon shown us this service was as good.
It was just sad to see this place was stuck in a time warp everything looked like it did 12years ago . Tired and worn our room over looked the back of the hotel so we had a lovely view of their rubbish skip old bins etc. but hey we were only sleeping in our room which was no 330 very clean and comfortable. This is a budget hotel but with so much potential. If the new owners spent some money this place could have so much it could offer. Our room could have a kitchenette installed safes that work as I'm sure other rooms could. The bar dining area and adjoining court yard could become a large resturant , don't get me wrong all meals served in bar were good value for money but other than quiz night you could count customers on one hand were 12years ago it was packed. Bins & skip all that's needed is some fence panels view sorted. Demolish the pool bar which on all visits has never been used and is just a rotten shed. Again that area easily usable for out door dining by the pool. , so time out your staff were lovely but come out of your time warp. Take a walk over to southern palms. Lovely dining lovely rooms an entertainment with steel bands giving you that Barbados feeling not English quiz night. It was also nice of southern palms to give a tour more than Sandals who told us we could pay $110 each to stay there from 10 am to 6 pm. So we arrived nest day to be told no we don't offer this. Typical of Sandals. Back to gap opposite in entrance to beach was Johnny's bar lovely food great views , Charlie's For sun loungers lovely service. Lovely food at Pablo's , harlequins , and directly opposite harlequins was another resturant think it was rage or something like that but food was top notch. . Overall if you've not been to the gap then it's a must. If your on a budget then time out is good value for money.

Dear Steveloud,

We are always grateful for reviews on how we can improve our property to make our guests happier. We would like to advise however that our property has gone through a recent renovation in 2012, since its closure.

All of our rooms are now outfitted with 32” flat screen TV’s and tea and coffee amenities. The driveway and courtyard at the main entrance has been redesigned and tiled with marble tiles. The restaurant and kitchen have all be upgraded, and we have installed 9+ TV’s to showcase the latest sports in our restaurant. We have repainted the entire property and pool deck, upgraded the furniture in the public areas and installed a complimentary computer station for our guests, which is a big hit!

We would certainly take your comments into consideration as we are always looking at ways we can please our guests and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to our hotel in the near future!

Kind Regards,
Alicia Farmer

We have stayed at Time Out 6 times. All were great. We were really happy to see Time Out reopen after renovations... Must say that Pierre at the front desk was always so helpful!
The staff is wonderful. Our room was clean and well maintained. Nice to see the new flat screen TV and the free Wifii now! Love the pool.
We spent our anniversary there in October and the hotel surprised us with a nice bottle of wine and a congratulations letter.
So of course we will be back!

Room Tip: we always request the rooms by the pool... nice little patio and just a few steps to the pool!
