Beautiful beach and pool, disappointing hotel

We found the staff unhelpful, and actually rude. The rooms were nice sized but really quite run down. The bed was old, thin pillows which smelled of mildew, and shabby bedding. Cracked old tile in the bathroom. What saved our short stay was a lovely pool and very beautiful beach. The location is good for experiencing the "Gap" with it'd party scene, but the beach, while lovely, had much rougher surf than other places on the island that we have stayed before.

Clean, close to the beach with the tiki bar serving good food

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
Nice pool. Good activities for kids with basketball court, videos etc. On premise store is very convenient. Check that your shower works ok before you settle into the room. Overall a great place and location.

Great Last Minute Decision

We booked our trip at the last minute and were very happy at Divi Southwinds. The location (beachfront, close to the Gap restaurants) is amazing. The room was a little run down but you can live with it for the view. The staff is very friendly. Island time is in effect so the late openings for the activities center, restaurants, etc took me by surprise. The new AA direct flight from Dallas arrives at 9pm so by the time you reach the hotel EVERYTHING is closed. Next time we will plan for that and bring food.

great place, south shore is the best

we did not expect such great conditions for the money that we paid, it was outrageous, nice staff, clean, great location(location, location), free breakfeast. Bring your wine and vodka with you( since it is so overpriced on this island -if you are able to to drink it, it is so hot!!!) such a nice cats around, claimed to be a "divi cats" give them a little treat and you would feel a a hero!!

Stayed Nov. 27 to Dec. 5,''08. The room was very nice. Everything worked including the AC. We had a pool side ground floor room so we had a shorter path to the pool when retrieving drinks from the room. The staff was great, at the activities hut. They made all our dinner and excursion reservations for us. The hostess at breakfast and beach bartender was also especially helpful. We loved the location in the Gap because it was easy to walk to many excellent restaurants and beaches. This was our second stay at the Divi Southwinds. We didn't want to go home.

The Divi South winds in Barbados was the worst resort bar none that I've ever stayed at. Try one night in room 515 and you'll never travel again. Birds and bird mess was everywhere in the dinning room at the buffet line , it was as if the were paying customers.

Divi Divine

I have stayed at the Divi Southwinds several times and have brought other members of my family there. It is a nice family friendly environment where you feel at home. The people are very attentive and rememberable. They really make you feel comfortable and make sure that your needs are filled. I have gone to the Divi not long after a tropical storm and even in the clean up stage I was not dissatisfied. As they add more and more to the resort it only becomes more and more admirable. It is a beautiful place and its location is situated next to almost everything. I would refer friends and strangers to enjoy the family of the Divi Southwinds Resort. If you are looking for the snooty dooty people they are not here. Book somewhere else.

Nice and relaxing!

I have stayed at the DIVI Southwinds several times. Even ritght after the hurricane one time it was nice a little desheveled but nice. The people are very friendly and the service is exceptional. The only reason I rated some of the room features good was because we had a problem with I guess mosquitoes in the room when we didn't have the air on. This only affected us when we stayed on the waterfront apts. The service and the food is excellent. The night entertainment is great too. It is a nice quaint place for regular folks to have a nice, comfortable, relaxing vacation. I have referred many others to the DIVI Southwinds.

Ok Hotel

When I visited the Divi's they were in the middle of construction which made for a lot of noise that woke us up early in the morning way before we wanted to get up.. The food and drinks were horrible. The rooms were way to small with no fan in the bathroom for ventilation. The furniture was old and the seating hard. The location is great, right on the strip were you can club hop every night. The staff was very helpfull which made the experience better.The price was reasonable. I will say this, don't leave anything behind becausee it took me a month to get my orthopedic pillow back.
