very good liaccommodations for families.

The accommodations were great for families. We were out a lot but when we were in the room we enjoyed the atmosphere. We felt the shower could have been cleaner - visible mildew/grout - but generally, we had a great time.

The front desk personnel were very nice and tried to help us. We had booked a pool view room, but did not get it. The bed was very comfortable, which is uncommon in St. Lawrence hotels.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Lots of recipes that tend to the English. I do not like that cuisine, so we went to out of the way places that served flying fish, chicken and lamb dishes.

Great location & buffet breakfast

I was very pleased with the hotel. The room was clean and the kitchenette had everything you could ask for. The location to other activities was well suited. The hotel was not on the beach, we had to cross the street to gain access to the beach. For us this was not a big deal. The buffet breakfast was very good every morning. Would stay here again.

Best location for the price!

The only problem was the fact that the safe was not functioning, and there wasn't anyone available to fix the problem. I had to end up using my friend's safe to lock up my valuables.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

I would not take the Harbor Master Cruise. I would take the tiami cabana crusies, it is more fun, the staff was great and the food and drinks were delicious.

Hospitality from the Front Desk to Beach

Divi South Winds has a unique layout, its like its own little village away from the busy and vibrant night life of St lawrence Gap, but within a 3 minute stroll to all the late night action. The staff is very at ease as it provides sincere help and guidance in making sure you are comfortable. There's a great ambassador of the beach named [...], he's friendly as well as informative. Tell him Sheila said helloDivi beach is breathtaking the north end is cal and the south end is great for wave jumping local enjoy the sea here.

Barbados Bargain

This was my second time staying here. The staff are very friendly and the location is perfect to go without a rental car to save money. The rooms are comfortable with lots of space, but during this last stay, we had trouble with consistent hot water in the shower despite changing rooms. Additionaly, the room above us starting leaking water through our ceiling.

Great for the money

I spent three nights here in March 2009, and was very happy with the hotel. My room was on the beach, with kitchen and balcony. The outside of the building looked a little run down as I approached, but once inside, it was very clean, well furnished and quiet and comfortable.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

The resort couldn't be in a better location for nightclubbing. Situated at the lower end of St Lawrence Gap, nothing is over a 5 minute walk. The Oistin Fish Fry is mandatory on Friday nights and only a short cab ride away.

Nice Property

The Divi Southwinds was a nice property. Quite, in spite of the construction and a very competent staff. Wireless internet reception in the room was excellent! My only issue was that the pool was out of service for the entire visit.

My review of Divi Southwinds Beach Resort

The hotel accomodations were clean but run down. Space was adequate for 3 persons. The kitchen was OK (a bread toaster would help)but the shower was very uncomfortable - bad shower head and poor heat control - temperature fluctuated drastically.
