Granted this is a 3 star hotel, but I am giving them an extra star because it’s beautiful there! Pros: It’s extremely clean! The rooms, the pool, the property. I stayed at the Time Out Hotel in November 2012 when new management had just taken over. The walls were painted cinder blocks and the floors were mostly concrete and it was still lovely! The rooms were clean and the pool was clean and cleaned throughout the day. The only difference was the restaurant attached to the hotel was closed for renovations. The hotel did provide the same continental breakfast like they do now, but all other meals were not provided. T the time, I picked this Hotel mostly due to reviews and it was almost 1/2 the price of the resort a friend picked for her and her now husband’s destination wedding and it was less than a 5 min walk away from their resort. The restaurant (Amigos) is now open and the walls in the hotel rooms are now skim coated and relatively smooth and all the floors are now tiled. The rooms are still clean and the pool is still clean. The restaurant Amigos is excellent! Mixed drinks and beers are $3 Barbados dollars (which is equivalent to $1.50 US dollars) and up. Meals are $18 Barbados dollars (which is equivalent to $9 US dollars) and up. This is a rare find- especially in the Gap (St. Lawrence Gap)! Most meals are astronomically priced there because it is a popular tourist area and we all know popular tourist areas are known for price gouging. Other restaurants in the area are far more expensive, so buyer beware! There is nighttime entertainment throughout the Gap. Bars with happy hours and live bands. Most cost from $10 Barbados dollars (which is equivalent to $5 US dollars) and up and they are usually free up to a certain time and/or free during most of the week. Check out Mc Bride’s Pub $ Grill’s live band from 9-11PM on Saturday nights. It’s less than a 10 min walk from the Hotel. Most entertainment you can walk to in the Gap from the hotel. You can take a bus, cab or a taxi to other areas. Don’t be afraid. The buses and vans are cheap and safe. Just ask the staff at the hotel where you can catch them. You can take a taxi, but taxis are expensive. I have walked all hours of the night and have never been bothered or harassed here. Cons: none. Only con is if you are not used to roughing it a little and want to be pampered, pay 2 or 3 times as much and go to a resort. Most times I have found food at resorts to lack flavor because they cater to the majority of people who go there who complain “local” food is either too spicy or salty. Also the beach is across the street from the hotel. I didn’t care, but I know a lot of people want a beach front hotel. The beach is free, you do have to pay for a chair though. Hope this helps!

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast is basic but the location is great and close to restaurants in the gap. The pool is well maintained and the rooms are clean. We had a great time!!

We really had a positive impression from start to finish. Firstly the friendly staff in reception and the straightforward check in, then being shown to our room which was clean, tidy, well decorated and comfortable. The aircon was a blessing and was super efficient, with remote control too. There was a safe as well, handy to keep the passports etc. We had continental breakfast included, it was great with plenty of coffee available & everything we had was tasty. We didn't feel the need to go for the cooked options that were available - conti was fine & plenty for us. The Amigos bar on-site was relaxed, comfy & friendly with good food options too, but with plenty more options in the area - something of a foodie capital and with good reason. All in all, we had a great time & would love to visit Time Out again - totally recommended. Read less

The Time Out Hotel was perfect for our 4 day getaway. Very clean room, dining room, pool area. Friendly staff. And close proximity to lots of things that made our stay wonderful! There is an ATM just down the road that I highly recommend for getting Barbados dollars. Best value for your money. Beach across the road was beautiful but to get a chair and umbrella cost $25 for the day!! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks Time Out! Read less
