Lovely location right on the beach. We had a nice room on room only basis. Lots of local bars and restaurants on hand. Good entertainment. Loved the Steel Pan Band. Staff very helpful and friendly. Before we went, St. Lawrence Gap was described as "lively" but we didn't think it was too lively. We had a wonderful holiday.

This was our second stay at this hotel. The beach location is lovely. Some of the staff are absolutely brilliant (David) but some not so friendly. Our room was fine, bathroom really could do with a bit of an update as could most of the hotel but it was clean. We Found a dirty towel on our first day but...

We spent ten days here recently. The hotel is in a quieter part of the St Lawrence Gap area which suited us fine, and we had no noise from adjoining rooms either. The rooms in the hotel seemed to vary a lot in specification: ours was ideal for us - just a bathroom and adequately sized bedroom, with a refrigerator...

Another lovely relaxing holiday at Southern Palms. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful, our room is comfortable, with views onto the beach, the sand, sea and coconut palms. The food in the beachside restaurant very delicious and there is lots to see and do if you can drag yourself off the beach ! We love it.

We have visited this beach side restaurant on two other visits to Barbados and every time we are impressed. The food is very good and isn't over priced either. The staff are very accommodating and professional. If you want a trendy , loud and pretentious bar then this will not be for you. But to my husband and I, it...

Just returned from a disappointing week at the Southern Palms resort in Barbados. I've been to the Southern Palms 3 times in the 1980's and was eager to return. However my vacation there ( with my husband and another couple ) was very mixed - all in all a let down, especially after all the glowing reviews shown on Trip...

We stayed at The Southern Palms in January 2015 for our first holiday in Barbados. It is ideally located right on the beach and centrally on "the gap" We had a sea view room with 2 balconies - 1 overlooking the pool and the other overlooking the ocean. The hotel and grounds were spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and...
