I’m a frequent traveler to Barbados, as this is where my beloved Parents were born and many family members live. I’ve stayed at numerous resorts and hotels in Barbados. South Gap Hotel is my new favorite. The hotel is impeccably clean. The staff is very friendly. Tia is at the front desk. Her personality is warm and welcoming. She called me by name from day one. The sounds of the waves hitting the shore is so soothing. The location is great. Very good restaurant downstairs, and in the gap. The gap comes alive at night, however, the “noise” was not overwhelming for those that choose not to join in. The shower pressure is soooo wonderful. The a/c is great and the WiFi works all over the property. There is no elevator, but the climb up the steps is effortless, as it’s not steep. This will be my new home when visiting Barbados. Thanks everyone and see you soon!! 🙏🏾🇧🇧 Read less

Basically its faultless, except for The Draconian anti smoking laws. However these are a product of The Bajan Government, not the hotel. Not being able to enjoy a cigarette on ones balcony with a morning coffee or evening drink, is to my mind OTT, but one can smoke by the pool. That is the only negative, and really, its no big deal, as everything… Read more
Basically its faultless, except for The Draconian anti smoking laws. However these are a product of The Bajan Government, not the hotel. Not being able to enjoy a cigarette on ones balcony with a morning coffee or evening drink, is to my mind OTT, but one can smoke by the pool. That is the only negative, and really, its no big deal, as everything else is "Off the scale". Great staff, clean to operating theatre standard, good food, at reasonable prices, and in a perfect location. I could write chapters about the outstanding qualities of the place, but lets just leave it at superlative. Probably one of the worlds best hotels of its type. Read less

My boyfriend and I decided to take our holiday in Barbados this year and we were so glad we booked the south gap hotel. Gorgeous ocean views from the room, great restaurant and bar downstairs. Close to shopping, restaurants and beaches. So much fun. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Barbados!

A small recently refurbished hotel with excellent sea views. The customer service was very good and although it is situated in st Lawrence Gap which has restaurants and night clubs there was no excessive noise at night.
