3rd time in Barbados

Would not recommend Mon, Dec 7, 2015
Barbados is amazing, this hotel location in St Lawrence gap is pretty good for not being direct onto the beach. On arrival at hotel they didn't have our booking, but was rectified. Room was ok, comfy bed and nice clean fluffy towels, kitchen very basic, missing items of crockery and Utensils though. Shower poor and lacked hot water but was fixed, hair dryer was missing from room but was replaced. Fridge froze all our food, we did manage to turn it down but most of the contents were ruined. Card key entry often didn't work well. There is a good pool but the pool bar area is not open any more. It has been replaced by a new beach front bar and restaurant which looks lovely and is clean. Nice area of beach and good loungers. The service at reception is pretty poor and not friendly, I thought it was bad until you go to the beach front bar and restaurant. The staff are rude and it is certainly the worst service we have ever received in the 10 years of going to the Caribbean. ( you do generally have to accept a little of island time service) we had one main meal there, food was alright, but due to service we agreed not to go again, mistakenly we decided on our second week to try breakfast, should have know better. The lady that cooked the eggs was lovely. However you will get much better breakfast, snacks, meals and drinks very close by, with great fun service and much better value. The Gap is a great location for all types of dining. Room only is a good choice. I do however have to acknowledge the grounds staff are all friendly and very polite. They should put these employees front of house.

Totally relaxing, beautiful beach!

Would recommend Wed, Nov 25, 2015
We loved this hotel, it was informal, friendly, choice of pools, stunning beach, a host of eating options (Go Bajan for value!) and fun things to do. The morning flypast of stunning green parakeets, seeing little hummingbirds visiting the flower beds, or meeting a really international crowd that have been coming for years, made Divi Southwinds a really nice place to be. It was probably a resort for the more mature, not many young families but that's what made it very peaceful and idyllic. Evening restaurants and breakfasts were pricey so you do have to shop around or do it yourself. We thought the Bajan people were polite, friendly and very helpful. The apartment rooms were extremely clean and a good little kitchen included.

Our stay at this hotel was short. Its locations is great and we enjoyed our short stay. However there was no hot water in our room. Other than that it was enjoyed.

Great value for money, friendly and helpf staff, brilliant location

Would recommend Tue, Mar 3, 2015
Would definitely recommend this hotel. Although a little tired round the edges, the rooms are very comfortable and pretty large. Extremely professional and helpful staff. Good facilities - really nice, large pool and lovely gardens. Our room wasn't spotless, but to be fair we dragged in a lot of sand most days from the beach. Rooms seem to be given a basic daily clean and beds made but not exactly a deep clean - by no means dirty though, so don't be put off by this. Good location right in the middle of St Lawrence Gap. All round really excellent value for money.

Can't do better for the £££s-location location location!

Would recommend Tue, Apr 8, 2014
Even if its in need of a lick of paint, the location is perfect for The Gap. Lovely clean pool and plenty if cover. Nice large grounds. Pool bar and restaurant refurbished only recently to a very high standard and now open at night-very good. The rooms are extremely spacious getting a suite rather than just a room. A separate bedroom plus a lounge with nice sofa bed and good kitchen area. I've stayed here three times now and security this year was better in the past years maybe because of their newly refurbished facilities on the beach. I doubt you will do much better than this unless you want all inclusive but that's really not necessary on The Gap.

Dining

Harlequins restaurant very good but lots of other fine eateries to suit all budgets.

Superb hotel

Would recommend Fri, Feb 22, 2013
Perfect location, a few minutes from the beach and bars/restaurants but its extremely quiet and picturesque. Staff can't do enough to help and our room was spacious, clean and well equipped. We had room only and that worked for us as I don't think it's the best value for money if you eat on site. I'd definitely return to this hotel as we couldn't fault it!

Dining

Eat out as the local food is great.

Good but could be better

Would recommend Sun, Feb 10, 2013
This was my first visit to Barbados and to Divi Southwinds. The hotel was clean, although it was a bit noisy with some repairs going on in and around the hotel. The fountains on each end of my hallway were VERY loud. The bed and furniture were comfortable. My room did not have any information about the amenities or how to get what I needed. I only know what was missing because my family (who own a timeshare) were in another room that had alot of information. The kitchen did not have silverware the first day. By the second day, silverware was provided. The hairdryer in my room did not work.The living room remote control did not work properly (it was held together with tape). These things could be fixed. I would visit again.

Money saver

Make the effort to go to an actual bank and change your money to Barbados dollars and spend that during your trip.

Would recommend Sun, Jan 27, 2013
The boys and I just returned from Divi Southwinds and we had an excellent vacation. We spent seven nights at Divi. The location and the staff was great. It was at the beach and we could walk down St. Lawrence Gap at any time. We felt very safe at this resort. Thank you Divi Southwinds.

Money saver

Take the public transportation. Not only is it cheap, it is also very interesting.
