All the rooms are self-catering apartments. They are well furnished and roomy with everything you need. We were very pleased with the quality of everything. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The location is perfect, between The Gap and Dover Beach which has improved and now has a nice selection of small local-style eateries, bars and shops.

I had booked through Priceline. and was only there for a short little trip. They said they could not find my reservation and did I bring a confirmation? I told them no and she asked me to look it up on my cell phone. My internet was not working and I could not. She acted like she did not believe...

Fabulous location, beautiful beach, lovely clean room/suite, super comfy bed, good shower and mainly friendly staff. They are my general comments on the Divi Southwinds, although I agree with some other reviewers that some parts of the building (the corridors mainly) could do with a lick of paint. Special mention must go to the best member of staff there .....

Beach was beautiful but across a street/alley from the hotel. Room was a suite with kitchette so we were able to reheat some pizza for breakfast. Room was clean and okay but we expected the resort to be nicer. It seems there was some remodeling so some areas were not accessible. Check in/out was a problem with a flight crew...

Take a good look at the photos on their website... these are things that you will NOT see at the actual hotel. Where should I start; most everything in our room, throughout the grounds and common areas was either in disrepair, closed, boarded up (literally with plywood), or non-operational. How many people like shaving in the kitchen in the morning?...

No complaints about Divi Southwinds. This is a different experience than "all inclusive" Caribbean - so be prepared for that and you won't be disappointed. It is not a pre-packaged "fun" kind of place with activities staff etc. It is someplace you stay for the night, then go out and make your own fun. The location of this hotel is...

Stayed at the Divi for 10 days and it was a very relaxing and rewarding stay. The people were nice, the place clean and always well stocked with towels and neat. Thanks to Pamela.

Sits on a great beach. That's the only good thing about it. Dated, no one cares, you get promises, but nothing happens. If you stay there make sure to see the room first. If something is not right, do not believe it will be corrected. Move on. There are lots of alternatives.

Stayed there for a weekend and it wasn't really satisfying. The hotel is located well, just some steps away from the beach. There is a little street you have to cross first which leads you to some beautiful restaurants nearby. The bedroom, kitchen and shower have been cleaned up properly, but there was mold in the sink and some corners....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the beautiful south coast of Barbados in Christ Church, the all-suite Divi Southwinds Beach Resort is a casual Caribbean retreat. Divi Southwinds lies along a wide stretch of soft white beach and gentle waves, and is uniquely divided by the St. Lawrence Gap-a lively street, home to restaurants, nightlight and local vendors. An intimate collection of one-bedroom suites is steps from scenic Dover Beach and offers stunning ocean views. Behind the St. Lawrence Gap, over one hundred spacious one- and two-bedroom suites surround a sparkling freshwater pool and feature tropical garden views. All suites at the Divi Southwinds feature oversized private patios or balconies perfect for a sunrise breakfast, fully equipped kitchens, king-sized beds, and sleeper sofas. ... more   less
