Reviewed 5 August 2014

This hotel is real good if you want to be in the party area of Barbados. Rooms have view of the ocean. Rooms are very clean, although somewhat dated. Full refrigator, microwave, sink and hot plate. Air conditioning is very weak. The pool area is very nice. Hotel staff is excellent and very friendly. Curtains are very thin and don't keep out the morning sun.

Be prepared to hear the music playing all night at the bar across the street.

Hotel is near many restaurants and clubs. Although you are right on the ocean, the entrance to the beach is a few blocks away. Near the bus line and taxis are always available.

I would stay at the hotel again.

The staff were really friendly, the room was absolutely fine but the night club across the road is on every night till at least 2am. BOOM BOOM BOOM, BANG BANG BANG. Squeeeeeeeal! I spent six or so months living in a squat next-door to a ragga pirate radio station when i was a lad. This is what sleeping at the South Gap reminded me of.

I was here while working. Oof did my head hurt in the mornings.

Room Tip: I think the rooms down stair on the sea-side might be quieter, but none seem to be double glazed. BO...

Just completed six days here at South Gap. I was totally blown away by the service and the standard of the room. The breakfast plan menu had many variations, so I basically ate something slighty different each morning. The room was refreshed daily, including bath towels. The receptionists were helpful and all staff were pleasant. I would really like to thank Jason at the bar for a wonderful time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't have "deep" pockets!

This hotel is a lovely hotel, lovely people down in the bar/resturant area.
Just a walk away from the beach.
Few shops close by, restaurants a stone throw away.
It is quite loud at night time as your are on the strip and the music is noisy at night time.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back of the hotel, as its very noisy at night time at the front, right thro...

Well from start to finish holiday stay was great everyone so helpful and friendly from management Cecile to Rose, Monique (was even helpful before we left England with emails to & from Monique thank you) and the rest of the girls at the reception desk, security man and housekeepers would certainly go back at drop of a hat. Yes it is in a noisy part of St Lawrences Gap but never bothered us ideal location in fact.Was there for husbands 50th on Valentines day (sorry for late review). Would also highly recommend Teds Tours look on Utube book before you go its a full days trip but well worth it and what a charactor!! Hope to go back soon Thanks South Gap for making my husbands birthday special :) x

I had a wonderful staycation experience for my birthday at the South Gap Hotel. I received a lovely bottle of complimentary red wine. The room was exceptionally clean with an ocean view balcony. The view was breathtaking as I walked onto the balcony. The hotel has a fully functional kitchenette and bathroom with running warm water. The noise from the neighbouring bars and night clubs were not an issue. Would not recommend to someone seeking a quiet vacation. The pool was nice, very cool during the day, and clean. At the end of my stay I got lucky with my partner on the slot machines, with no prior experience, which was fun. I had an amazing birthday and would definitely staycation at South Gap Hotel in the near future.
