Wonderful place to stay
St. Lawrence Gap apartments was a wonderful place to stay during our trip to Barbados. The apartment was clean & well-maintained, and the apartment & property were just as described in the listing. These apartments are in a great location - close to restaurants and beaches. If you're into nightlife, you won't be disappointed.
The apartments were not crowded. Typically, we would see 3 or 4 other people at the most around the pool at one time. Also, the apartments felt safe. There were guards on duty around the clock. The beach area in front of the apartments is quite small, but one can still swim there (but it is rocky). We swam around the corner and saw some fish and large conch shells. A larger beach was a short walk down the Gap. For $5 a day, we could rent a beach umbrella with chairs. Very nice. On our last day, it rained in the morning and sea turtles came to the beach where we were swimming. We were able to swim with the turtles. It was awesome!
Barbara was very helpful prior to our arrival. If you're going to rent a car, be sure to use the company she recommends. We went with another company and everything was fine, but the company she recommends has an office at the airport with really helpful employees. Our comany isn't located at the airport and we had some trouble finding the representative. But it all worked out in the end.
I would recommend Barbados if you're considering a carribbean island for your next vacation. Everyone is friendly on the island, it feels pretty safe and the weather is gorgeous. My only dislike about Barbados are the steep prices for food. Much more expensive than the U.S., but if you know what to expect then you can factor it into your budget.
One more thing..if you stay in these apartments, consider going into Bridgetown for a grocery store. The grocery stores that we found closest to St. Lawrence Gap had very limited selection. But we found a wonderful grocery store in the Bridgetown area.
