Great Condo, Great Location, Excellent Price!
We stayed at St. Lawrence Gap Beach Condomiums from 5/21/11 to 5/25/11. Our unit was Apt 7, "Sea Breeze". The unit was exactly as the photos show, with a beautiful view of the ocean from both your living room and master bedroom; WOW says it all! A great comfy king size bed and the A/C worked wonderfully! We arrived late at night and were greeted by Mike in Security. He explained the town and all it had to offer. He was extremely pleasant and acknowledged we were weary travelers (13 hours of traveling). Within minutes, Monica greeted us, showed us around the property and then took us to our unit. She explained all the amenties inside the unit, just like a five star hotel host would. She was wonderful and stated, "if we need anything, just call". We saw Monica and Mike numerous times during our stay, what a terrific staff! We met Jane Shattuck for a brief moment as she was leaving for a business trip with her husband; she too was very pleasant and helpful. We cannot say enough good things about the staff, their hospitality and our unit. The location was GREAT, right on the main street of The Gap where there are numerous restaurants, bars, nightly entertainment, shops (a convenience store just a 2 minute walk on the same side of the street that has everything you could need). About a 4 minute walk there's a great beach area with food and drinks stands (not expensive, either). Various stands offered 2 for 1 drinks. Also, you can rent beach lounge chairs and umbrellas there. We paid $10 USD for the day for 2 lounges & 1 umbrella (that's a deal). The ocean was warm and the color was beautiful. We also visited a unique place called Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary (just around the corner from the unit) that has a barista with homemade desserts, ice cream and sandwiches. You can sit inside or eat outside on the covered patio by the lake; a must if you like dessert. After our stay in St. Lawrence Gap, we traveled to Holetown for 5 days which was another delight. However, I must say there are MORE activities at St. Lawrence Gap. The Gap has everything you could wish for. The employees we encountered at the restaurants and bars at The Gap were extremely pleasant and created a FUN atmoshere. Even with the nightly entertainment, our unit was quite. We believe the people of Barbados truly want everyone to enjoy a wonderful Barbados experience and it shows, we will be back! Thanks Jane, Mike and Monica for a wonderful stay!
