Stayed at this resort for two nights. Staff seemed very friendly and helpful. Accommodation was excellent. Food was great. The only issue is during breakfast when customers have to deal with the bird issue. Something animal friendly needs to be done to control this problem. Do not get me wrong I am a bird lover but these little creatures can...

The hotel is very well located on the beach but is badly in need of a refurbishment. Staff are not particularly friendly but response to assistance adequate. On arrival and for first two days inadequate shower pressure but when pointed out to reception the maintenance people promptly fixed the problem. Probably no fault of the hotel but on day four...

The best thing about Southwinds is the location,it's right at the St.Lawrence Gap.On our visit only one restaurant was open at the resort,the beach is nice but you get chairs but pay for umbrellas why? Overall not too bad,staff is friendly.

Thank you for your review, we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate your comments on our restaurant pureocean and glad you enjoyed our local monkeys at the resort. They are quite shy but do come out at sunrise and sunset.

All the rooms are self-catering apartments. They are well furnished and roomy with everything you need. We were very pleased with the quality of everything. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The location is perfect, between The Gap and Dover Beach which has improved and now has a nice selection of small local-style eateries, bars and shops.

Fabulous location, beautiful beach, lovely clean room/suite, super comfy bed, good shower and mainly friendly staff. They are my general comments on the Divi Southwinds, although I agree with some other reviewers that some parts of the building (the corridors mainly) could do with a lick of paint. Special mention must go to the best member of staff there .....

Beach was beautiful but across a street/alley from the hotel. Room was a suite with kitchette so we were able to reheat some pizza for breakfast. Room was clean and okay but we expected the resort to be nicer. It seems there was some remodeling so some areas were not accessible. Check in/out was a problem with a flight crew...

Located on the beautiful south coast of Barbados in Christ Church, the all-suite Divi Southwinds Beach Resort is a casual Caribbean retreat. Divi Southwinds lies along a wide stretch of soft white beach and gentle waves, and is uniquely divided by the St. Lawrence Gap-a lively street, home to restaurants, nightlight and local vendors. An intimate collection of one-bedroom suites is steps from scenic Dover Beach and offers stunning ocean views. Behind the St. Lawrence Gap, over one hundred spacious one- and two-bedroom suites surround a sparkling freshwater pool and feature tropical garden views. All suites at the Divi Southwinds feature oversized private patios or balconies perfect for a sunrise breakfast, fully equipped kitchens, king-sized beds, and sleeper sofas. ... more   less
