South Gap Hotel
- What's Included
Location: St. Lawrence Gap, 20-minute drive from Grantley Adams International Airport. Golf course nearby (20-minute drive), and beach nearby (5-minute drive).
With a doubt the hotel is old, but itvis clean and well maintained. All the units have kitchenettes and oceanview balconies. The staff are extremely friendly and with it being a small hotel, everyone remembers you.The restaurants serves good food although I didn't eat there much. There are two happy hours at the bar: 12 pm to 1 pm and 5 pm to 6 pm. If you order beer I'd suggest ordering a bucket with ice...4 Banks costs $11.50 BBD during happy hour.All of the chaise lounges have thick cushions. There are also tables along the ocean rail. It was great not having to save loungers.The hotel is a favourite among retirees. Children may get bored because there is only the pool in the immediate vicinity. It is anout a 10 minute walk to the beach.There are many restaurants right outside the hotel. I loved the food from a woman who set up a nightly BBQ at the entrance to the hotel. Great BBQ chicken, ribs, burgers, hotdogs, rice with peas, salads at prices much less than the restaurants.Shout out to our housekeeper Tracy, maintenance person Edward Stuart and bartender Shane. Truthfully though, all staff deserve a shout out.The hotel will be undergoing renovations from May to August.
Very noisy at night as you are in the middle of the party area whitch goes on till 4 in the morning so unless you are young this area is not for you.But if you are in your 50s and above it is not for you.The area does have very good returants
The hotel is older and we heard that it will be upgraded, but in the meantime, it is cheap. The bath faucet dripped constantly, the bathroom door wouldn't close correctly and the electrical outlet didn't work in the bathroom. The noise and music across the street at night was very loud until about 3 a.m. If you are a light sleeper, this isn't the place for you. But, the location was great, we walked or taxi'd everywhere and there are a lot of good restaurants nearby. The pool is great, with a restaurant bar and beautiful view of the ocean. Everyone is very friendly.
Me and a couple of other guest stayed at the South Gap Hotel the rooms were cleaned every day and the views from the balcony were amazing all the staff that worked there could not do enough for you they were all very friendly will defiantly go back again.
As this was our first visit to Barbados, we wanted to stay somewhere that was close to restaurants, shopping, etc. South Gap Hotel is a great location-when leaving the property you can go in either direction to get first class food, Mexican, East Indian, a tasty little ice cream shop, best frozen coffee cocktails, convenience store & more. The greatest asset of South Gap Hotel is their staff. From the time we entered the reception area to the time we left, we were treated with kindness and respect & always greeted with a smile. This included the reception staff & evening security, housekeeping, maintenance, kitchen & bar staff & the Manager. The rooms are clean and adequate for what you will need as you don't spend much time in them. All have kitchen/kitchenettes with coffee maker, tea set, apartment size fridge, microwave, portable burner, pots, plates, cutlery & salt & pepper. Bathrooms are stocked with shampoos & lotions.The bed was surprisingly comfortable and the air conditioner/fan kept the room comfortable. The pool and surrounding area is well kept & the loungers have comfy cushions which make for a lazy day of sunning. We ate at the Tropical Mist restaurant & their lunch specials are well presented and reasonable. Their starters and sandwiches are also very tasty. The only reason this hotel did not get an excellent was also because of their location --which is right across from 2 of the most popular night clubs. There are rooms where the sound does not carry to but on the 2nd floor where we stayed there was a couple of very loud nights with karaoke & jazz nights until 2 or 3 am. We did bring ear plugs(upon reading earlier reviews before arriving) and closed windows and doors which helped cut the noise. This hotel is doing major renovations this summer so we will definitely book again if we travel to Barbados.
