This is not the Ritz. But it is a basic, good value and friendly hotel that has spectacular 180 deg sea views from balconies on every room. How many shades of blue are there? The staff were very helpful. It's a very short walk to a sandy beach. The location at St Lawrence Gap has a good range of bars...

We began the holiday in room 118 which was a studio. The room itself was well presented and more than adequate with a stunning view over the pool and the sea. The room was without noise, day or night, other than the waves breaking against the shore below. However, after a few days, we discovered a leak in the bathroom...

Definitely would recommend this place if u plan to visit the Paradise island of Barbados but don't want to break your bank. My wife and I had an oceanfront room. Modest size but always very clean. Also comes with a full size fridge and kitchen and utensils which was nice. Cable tv nice big bed. Best part was the view...

This hotel did not disappoint. It provided us with the best of both worlds. By day you can sit on the back patio to watch the ocean and by night you can sit on the front porch and people watch. Staff was friendly, rooms were very clean, bed was comfy, locals were very welcoming (not pushy) and the location was...

A lovely place to stay. The staff are fantastic - warm and friendly. The Hotel is an older property, but had everything that you could want. It was well cleaned daily, and a pleasure to stay in.

The South Gap hotel is situated in the center of the St Lawrence Gap, literally moments walk to restaurants and bars. One of the downsides of being so close to the "action" is the noise at night (particularly from a karaoke bar almost oppositte). The rooms are not very sound proof so bring your earplugs if you are planning to...

The staff was fantastic, we felt like family at the first smile, and the smiles never quit!. The view was two fold, the "Gap" out the back door, and the sea off the balcony! The party starts at about 8pm and goes till the wee hours of the morning, so this is the place for night owls! For the "not...
