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
