Reviewed 14 February 2010

We found the South Gap by accident after our first hotel emailed to say "Sorry but we are fully booked!" even though we booked months before !!!
As we arrived we were more than nervous but within second the staff welcomed us and made us so relaxed .... Rose on reception has the biggest smile and heart and together with Sue her manager and the rest of the team made this a perfect holiday.
The rooms are clean and bright and the aircon a blessing .... from our room we had a perfect ocean view... The pool area was an oasis.....
It seems many guests are mature and regulars who visit for three months at a time to miss winter at home.... that was lovely great characters..... No screaming kids or models on a photo shoot strutting around ....
The hotel is in the best location ...2 mins from shops,bars and restaurants ...great little bay area and the beach no more that 5 mins level walk away...
The locals are very friendly ...Kareoke is loud in the bar opposite ...best thing is go join in !
Watch out for the guy in the street selling home made aloe vera after sun .... he will put a bit on yer arm then try and sell u a bottle for $30 ! just say no ..... they are not offended .... just a little insistant lol !
So in brief ...forget the glossy 4/5* places along the strip go visit South Gap ..... We will be back next year for sure !!!
ohhh just a little note the hotel restaurant is not run by the hotel ... lovely food and great Bar staff.... worth a vist ...Breakfast a little ummmmmmmm ...well they scramble their eggs in a wierd way :0)
Have a great holiday ... give Rose and the staff our love

From Philadelphia, Pa, USA

I had a great vacation stay at this hotel. The staff was very helpful and professional. The room was nice because I had a separate kitchenette and bedroom. My room opened up to the swimming pool area and I had a nice view of the ocean.

The hotel is in the heart of the night life and there were great restaurants right out the front door. You don't have to cab it because it's all right there.

I reccomend this place to anyone and I plan to return. I was hooked on the Caymans for years but have found a new place to go to get away.

My wife & I stayed at the South Gap from 12/30/09 thru 1/5/10. We found it to be perfect for our needs. It was close to the activity we wanted to see and do, the accomodations were in line with the great price since this was high season. We loved being across the street from great bars and music. We danced most every night on the deck over the front entrance. Noise could be a factor on that side of the hotel but we were on the ocean side and were not affected at all. There are many wonderful places to eat and drink in the gap within 1 or 2 blocks, all an easy walk. A late flight put us in at 2:30AM and 2 very large security men cordially checked us in. We felt very safe in the area even when walking back having over indulged in the delightful Mount Gay rum or Banks beer. The restaurant at the hotel was excellent, priced right and most convenient for breakfast or lunch. We would definitely stay here again.

My family, freinds and I had a great time at South Gap Hotel; we spent most of our time in the pool. The staff and other guest were all pleasant.

Excellent location for the independent, non-fussy traveller. Great district with amenities galore - walking, shopping, nightlife, beaches, bars. Easy access to the rest of the island. Accomodations are roomy, clean, functional and tasteful. Large balconeys facing ocean. Good interaction amongst guests on pool deck. Friendly, helpful staff all round. Welcoming and delightful. Would certainly return to the hotel again.
