I found a great deal online. The customer service was awesome from check in to check out. The room was beautiful and the view was amazing. I am very familiar with Barbados and this location is great. Close to the beach, fast food, fine dining and grocery stores.

FANTASTIC!!! A relaxed, well priced hotel in a convenient location. The rooms have a full kitchen. There is a washer/dryer on each floor. The pool us more for dipping, not a serious swim. Breakfast is included and within a few days, the friendly staff knew my habits and brought items to the table without having to order. The hotel is very clean… Read more
FANTASTIC!!! A relaxed, well priced hotel in a convenient location. The rooms have a full kitchen. There is a washer/dryer on each floor. The pool us more for dipping, not a serious swim. Breakfast is included and within a few days, the friendly staff knew my habits and brought items to the table without having to order. The hotel is very clean and you can see how hard staff work to keep it so. This can't be easy with masks and the Barbados heat. All staff from housekeeping, to pool maintenance are super friendly. A special thanks to the fabulous, friendly, and helpful front desk. Everyone was amazing!!! I look forward to the next visit, hopefully, when masks are not required, and you can see everyone's smiling face! Read less

We enjoyed a really relaxing time at South Beach. Friendly staff, spacious suite ( 1 bedroom suite), good breakfast and the beautiful beach just a short stroll across the road. There's a variety of eateries not far from the hotel too. The reception team were helpful - thanks to Troy for helping us source car hire for a one day road trip. We liked the two happy hours, especially as we both didn't have to have the same cocktail! We spent our final few hours after checking out, lounging around the pool, and taking a dip in the sea. It was very handy having the hospitality room where we could change and get ready for the flight home. We would happily return for another stay at South Beach. Read less
