“Excellent!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We moved from the disgusting YELLOWBIRD Hotel into the South Gap Hotel on the 2nd day of our holiday and could not have been happier...
The rooms were very clean, spacious and reasonably modern. The kitchenette had a two ringed hotplate, full sized fridge freezer, microwave, toaster and small kettle, perfect for basic catering.
The hotel cleaning staff were quite wonderful, they were cleaning from 7am until late in the afternoon and everywhere was spotless, they worked tirelessly.
The ladies on reception were always full of smiles and friendly/helpful at all times
The restaurant/bar was spotless with excellent service throughout the day. Also large portions of food, lunch was often shared with my daughter.
The pool area overlooked the sea which was inaccessible as the waves crashed against the walls, but not a problem, the beach was just down the road.
The only downside was the location, right next door to an open air nightclub which during the week was turned into a Karaoke Bar - not good! We did buy earplugs which drowned out most of the noise so we managed to get a decent nights sleep.
Would I go again.... armed with earplugs - yes!

Great location. Staff friendly and efficient. Clean rooms, all facilities for basic self catering. Gap is convenient for food, put up with the late night music, but try to get hotel staff to keep noise down.

This was our 7th annual visit to Barbados and our 6th stay at the South Gap Hotel; need we say anymore!

All staff - the reception girls, bar staff, housekeeping, and the maintenance and security guys are a credit to this hotel and its management. Cleanliness is to a very high standard with rooms and the pool being serviced daily. The food and drinks served in the restaurant are superb, and the girls on reception are always on hand to assist; nothing is too much trouble. We cannot fault this hotel.

Other reviewers have mentioned noise from the local bars, but given St Lawrence Gap is the liveliest part of the island the sound of people enjoying themselves on an evening is only to be expected.

We will certainly be returning again next year.

Noise is also inside the hotel
It seems the night person plays their own music ( could be wrong )
Staff nice rooms basic but clean.
Crabs crawl up around the pool from the sea early morning but disappear by bout 8am it was weird to see
There is a street burger/ chicken vendor right outside hotel smells really greesy and the kirb is thick with fat needs jet washing.

Lovely intermate small hotel. Amazing sea views from the clean brightly decorated room and balcony, it was a joy to wake up to each morning. 24years since our last stay on the Island but the hotel still captures that traditional Bajan feel. Very relaxing stay and great place to wind down. Lovely staff. Earplugs recommended if you're a light sleeper to block out music from local bars during the night.

Room Tip: May be less noisy on the ground floor accommodation, not sure. Request quiet room.

I was very pleased with my stay here. The room was quite comfortable and beautiful, the decor quite caribbean. The view of those Barbados Aqua and heavenly blue waters from my room was a reason to sleep with the door open at night and enjoy that ocean air...what a beautiful thing to wake up each morning.
The service was courteous and warm and the team even called to check up on me after my first night there, which I found very thoughtful. Definitely planning to visit again soon and stay there.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 217, but I had friends in room 212, 304 and on the ground level and they were all e...

This hotel was just what the wife and I needed for our stay in Barbados. Great location, very good food, and a wonderful staff. The room was clean when we arrived, and was kept clean during our stay. The ladies at the front desk were wonderful to talk to, and very pleasant when we had questions for them. We had the breakfast plan which worked well for us. Just the right amount of food and prepared properly. We had an early tour booked one morning and the staff prepared our breakfast earlier than normal for our convenience.

The day of my birthday we were surprised with a bottle of wine which was greatly appreciated. The bar staff were very friendly and accommodating, Patrick and Jay have wonderful personalities and were more than helpful with questions about their country.

We would definitely stay here again on our next visit.
