First of all I have to say a huge thanks to the staff at South Gap - I was one of those 'annoying' customers who couldn't confirm my travel dates and had to keep changing my plans at a very busy period during the Crop Over festivities. They were all extremely patient and helpful before and during my stay, and despite me being such a nuisance they gave me a free upgrade when I needed to stay an extra night!
I was on a business trip for a conference and was just looking for accommodation on the island to suit my tight budget, so I was very pleasantly surprised by the excellent value for money offered by South Gap. The hotel is in a great location if you want to really be in the middle of things - easy access to both Bridgetown and Oistins and its literally on the doorstep of the clubs, bars and restaurants along St Lawrence Gap (so no taxi fares!)
Its not 5-star accommodation but the rooms have everything you need for self-catering and are kept really clean with a daily maid service.
Noise has never been an issue with me so the 'singing' from the nearby Karaoke bar didn't bother me at all, but it can get very loud at times. Because I had to chop and change so much I stayed in 2 different rooms and the 1-bedroom apartment on the ground floor was actually closer to the noisy area but I couldn't hear it from there so they probably have some sort of sound-proofing on the lower floors.
In a nutshell, South Gap Hotel is a great place to stay and they have a really high standard of customer care which goes a long way in my book. I had a very enjoyable stay there and I shall definitely be returning!
