First time in Barbados and I had no idea what to expect. South Gap was excellent, the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Rooms were clean, I ended up getting the studio room and although it was very lovely it was still too small for me. I will definitely come back and stay at this hotel but upgrade my room. This was an excellent choice and I enjoyed my stay. Read reviews on noise, I was on the 3rd floor. You could definitely hear music from the strip, but it was nothing to complain about in my opinion....

Party central

My wife and I stayed here for a few days. We were aware of the construction but that really did not affect us.  Upon check in the room was not ready so we had to wait with all our stuff by the pool for an hour.  They gave us a bottle of champange and coffee mug as a gift for the wait.The hotel is directly across from the hottest club in Barbados and they have an open patio and you can hear the music and people until 3am when they shut down.  The room is not sealed off with large gaps under the door and slotted bathroom windows all the noise come right inside.  On the 2nd night we heard a loud popping noise in the middle of the night, when it was light out we noticed the tile floor had buckled -maybe 15 tiles so they had to move us to another room. re-pack everything-move and unpack.  The next night the A/C stopped working but no more rooms to move us so they had to move us to another hotel. Re-pack, move, unpack again.  The staff was very nice just too bad we had so many problems.  Would I stay there again? - No,  way too noisy, no beach and just so so room. Oh, also we hated the shower, the curtain rod on both rooms was no positioned well (too far in) so between the shower curtain and the wall was about 24" so we had to shower sideways to avoid touching the curtain all the time. Also the heads were not movable so it was a real chore to shower.

Good hotel, great location

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: noisy at night
The hotel was very well located, the staff was very welcoming and helpful. The only problem is the noise from the karaoke across the street.

A gem of a find!!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, the view from the balcony, professional staff, close to transport
I traveled alone and at all times during my stay I felt safe and secure. Check in was a breeze!! The receptionist was professional and courteous. She escorted me to my room and showed me everything I needed to know and then some. The other ladies were equally as knowledgeable and professional as well as the other support staff. I researched the hotel carefully before I booked and the reviews were about 50/50 but I still gave it a go. I am extremely happy that I did. I stayed on the ground floor a little way from reception. I saw reviews about the noise from the nightclubs next door and was a little scared but I barely heard anything and if I did it was more like a whisper. The room had the toaster, microwave, iron and ironing board etc plus tea/coffee sugar. Housekeeping was effective and efficient the room was always clean and linens changed and tidied. Bar staff was warm and friendly. The surroundings were always clean. The view from my room was breath taking!! All rooms have an ocean view...ALL!! I sat in the balcony and just relaxed, watching the waves and inhaling the sweet, crisp sea breeze! The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the beach - Dover Beach but you can use the small beach at the hotel next door at no cost. The wifi is lightening fast. There are restaurants all around if you chose not to eat at the hotel. Transportation options are a short walk away or you can have the ladies call you a taxi. The hotel is right in the thick of action but you never once feel the hustle and bustle of the action outside, it is like entering paradise. I have stayed at many hotels and this was the first time that I felt so comfortable like I was at home. My only issue was a minor said "queen bed" but it was actually two junior beds pushed together but I was too tired roaming the country to be bothered, my only concern was to choose between AC or fan to sleep with! lol There is an ATM to the front of the hotel and a mobile police booth which is manned also to the front. As a female traveling alone I could feel no safer...oh and the hotel security is on spot! I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Staff made me feel welcome upon returning for third visit.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, close to the action
Cons: Noisy
This was my third stay at the South Gap Hotel. If you want to be in the midst of the action, this is your kind of place. It's quiet during the day but very noisy and smoky at night - the price you pay for being directly across from the most lively clubs (and grills) in St. Lawrence Gap. The view from the rooms is the ocean. The (studio) rooms vary in size, tend to be small, but neat, with free wifi access. My favorite is the 1 bedroom, with a separate sitting room. The bar, restaurant, patio and pool are open and face the water.

This hotel has all the amenities of a five star hotel and then some

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
I thought that because of the price I was going to be dissapointed, however, I was pleasantly suprised. This hotel is in the perfect location on the gap and all the action. I thought that I would be affected by the music from the surrounding nightclubs, however, once again I enjoyed every minute of my time there and looked foward to hearing the music and seeing all the activity at night. The view of the ocean from my room was a plus and the staff should be commended for their hospitality and efforts in keeping up the maintenance of the facilities.
