SOUTH GAP HO­TEL, ST LAWRENCE GAP

The south coast of Bar­ba­dos has a party rep­u­ta­tion, so this is the place for those whose idea of a per­fect hol­i­day in­volves fre­quent nights out. The South Gap is a mod­ern ho­tel with pool and restau­rant in St Lawrence Gap, a lively 1.3km stretch of road in the par­ish of Christ Church. A stu­dio for two with bal­cony and mini kitchen costs from Dh470 B&B.

BECKY’S BY THE SEA, FITTS VIL­LAGE

Just across the road from the beach in Fitts Vil­lage on the west coast, this mod­ern guest house has two en suite rooms from around Dh235 a night. Guests have use of liv­ing ar­eas, sev­eral pa­tios and kitchen. Becky’s doesn’t of­fer break­fast but it prom­ises that you’ll wake to ‘freshly brewed cof­fee, herbal teas, lo­cal fruit and juice when in sea­son’. For more sub­stan­tial fare, take a bus to Ho­le­town, sit­u­ated a few miles up the road, where Bean’n’Bagel cafe does a real Ba­jan break­fast of fried fly­ing fish and bakes (the lo­cal ver­sion of a pan­cake) or a more tra­di­tional cooked break­fast.

ROSTREVOR HO­TEL, ST LAWRENCE GAP

This beach­front prop­erty on the south coast has dou­bles with small kitchens from about Dh445 a night room only. It also has a pool­side restau­rant.
