Is this Paradise?
Posted Sep 3, 2016
Visited the hotel in 2007 and 2008 and amazed that Reggie still remembered us after all that time when we returned in August this year!
Hotel was quiet (but so was the whole area including the Gap) and the one bedroom apartment was good although could do with a lick of paint.
The hotel is on the beach, which never had more than a dozen people on it ,and sunbeds, towels, umbrellas were easy - no getting up at dawn to reserve. Walking into the sea is like walking into a warm bath and nice and safe for children of all ages.
No need to go on a trip to see turtles. We were lucky enough to see several turtles come ashore in the evening to lay their eggs. We also saw baby turtles including a whole nest making a break for it and trying to find their way to the sea.
The room had full cooking facilities which we used for breakfast and lunch and was within walking distance within many decent restaurants including The Chopping Board at Mojos, which is just across the road, Stream and Castaways. We were also told about Just Grilling which was very good and also Chilly Moos Ice Cream Parlour.
A couple of disappointments - St Lawrence Gap is certainly not what it used to be with many restaurants closed and not the vibrancy of the past. Several other attractions closed including The Graham Hall Sanctuary. The Soup Bowl choked with seaweed suggesting Barbados is in a bit of trouble.
If you want relaxing it is definitely to be recommended. We are already looking at booking for next year.
