My stay was all that I wanted it to be: relaxing & comfortable. The room was clean & the shower was amazing. It was a last minute decision to stay here & I’m glad I did. Dayo was very nice & helped in every aspect that she could. Would definitely stay again.

We spent 5 nights at South Gap,and enjoyed every single minute.The room was spotless, comfortable,with a beautiful sea facing balcony. It was actually very restoring to get off a plane and spend those days re-adjusting, reading,sleeping and being fed! The hotel food and bar were good and we were fortunate to have food deliveries from our Barbadian family members! The staff could not have been more helpful and gracious. They were kind, considerate, patient, efficient when it came to booking COVID tests etc.. Excellent value for money.Thank you all. Penny and Albert Read less

I stayed there for a couple weeks and enjoyed the amenities. Although the food was pricey, it was great. The location was amazing. However the futon in my room was extremely dirty and looked like it had never been washed. Besides for that I had an ok time, just wish they had more reasonable prices.

I stayed here for three weeks. It's a really lovely hotel, For the first four days I was in quarantine, so confined to the room: not a problem at all - all meals delivered to the room and you couldn't really get bored of the lovely view of the sea and occasionally turtles! The mini kitchen is perfectly adequate for reheating food or even making food from scratch if you wish. The staff were all charming and helpful. I guess one of the best things about the hotel is the location. Plenty of bars and restaurants on your doorstep and the beach a very short walk away. But the hotel itself is quiet, the only noise being the sound of the sea. I've stayed at the Radisson Blu and Hilton on previous trips but will always stay at the South Gap in future. Read less
