I think we loved the shower and bed the most. Definitely would recommend to all of our friends both local and international. We would have preferred a higher floor. The service from the wait staff was excellent.

Please give Tishaun a raise! She is absolutely phenomenal. After booking overseas and discovering there was a local rate, Tishaun was patient with me and guided me through the rebooking process. She confirmed I was all set and remained pleasant despite the inconvenience of my error. When I arrived completely exhausted from the hell that was GAIA, again she greeted me with warmth and kindness as I checked in. She called to advise me to order dinner before I started getting comfortable bc the restaurant was closing shortly and as I had not eaten all day I was supremely grateful. When I had to change locations bc they were fully booked, she secured a new room for me nearby and assisted with my transportation there. I will recommend her and South Gap to everybody. I wish we could clone her bc Barbados needs more Tishauns in tourism!! Read less

It was great! The staff was very friendly, it was honestly a home away from home. The restaurant food and drinks were top tier and the staff there were just as friendly as our girls at the front desk. We would definitely be back!

I enjoyed my stay at South Gap from the moment I walked through the front doors. All of the staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. The property is in excellent condition and we'll maintained. They follow all Covid-19 protocols for sanitizing everything and everywhere.
