Before going to Southern Palms, I was a little bit worried having seen some bad reviews - there was no need to worry.
We stayed in a double room with no real view, and a small window - that being said it was still airy, light and comfortable. We got such a good deal (£800 for 10 days with flights from the UK) that although the room wasn't amazing, we had no complaints at all. The room was kept clean and came with a fridge, safe and ample space.
We were on a room only basis so didn't eat in the hotel but the food did look good from what I saw. Before going, I had been a bit worried about being room only as a lot of people had said how expensive food was. I needn't have worried as less than a 5 minute walk away from the hotel there were food shacks selling chicken, burgers, flying fish, chips and lots of other things. These shacks were really good quality and as nice if not nicer than the expensive restaurants we went to. There was also a place almost directly opposite that did breakfasts such as omelettes and toast so we never went hungry.
St Lawrence Gap seemed quite quiet when we went, maybe because it was November, but the hotel is really well placed. There are a good number of restaurants and bars within a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Also at the end of the Gap towards the Bay is the pick up for the bus that took us to Oistins one day and into Bridgetown the other way.
The only thing I would mark the hotel down is the repair, whilst it was really clean, it could do with a spot of paint just to modern it up. Other than that, I cannot fault it at all and if we weren't going to Jamaica this year, I would happily return to Southern Palms. Looking at some of the other hotels local were people had paid quite a lot more for their rooms, I would say Southern Palms is extremely good value for money.
