    By , East Yorkshire
    Had a great holiday at the escape at the gap. Great room, very clean. Staff very friendly. Good value for a 3*. Lovely clean beach. Omar was very helpful on the beach. Only problem was the beach towel exchange, kept missing the change over time as it only once a day. It could do to be an all day service. Would recomment your hotel for being good value for money.

    "Lots of fun... Omar took us out sailing, which was great..."
    By , Alabama
    Lots of fun... Omar took us out sailing, which was great to have included in an all inclusive resort, but BEWARE OF THE TURTLE MAN. He pressured us constantly to do the turtle tour by ourselves on his simple, outboard boat, rather than the usual catamaran/boat that seats more than 4! All inclusive doesn't necessarily mean privacy here, as there were people constantly approaching us for jetskiing at $80 an hour or druggies that want to scam you into buying Advils that they call ecstasy or flour that they call cocaine... we did get to eat two meals after our check out time of 12 noon, which I thought was nice. LAWRENCE IS THE BEST BARTENDER EVER!! The staff was GREAT, but beware all the other people lurking around who are trying to make your day all the more expensive!!

    By , Cornwall, England
    Our first time in the Caribbean - we had a wonderful time, and the hotel was excellent in every way. The food was great,(especially the eggs at breakfast, cooked to order by a patient and very skilled lady!) and the bar the best we've been to. The beach is right on the doorstep, and the sea a beautiful aqua-marine.... and complete with the occasional turtle.Like many others, we can't wait to return. Very many thanks to all the staff for a memorable stay!!

    "I can perhaps see why some people have posted negative..."
    By , Bromsgrove, UK
    I can perhaps see why some people have posted negative reviews, certainly on our stay there were some parties who were just simply in the wrong place on the wrong kind of holiday. One party's opinion was that it was not "all inclusive" but simply "full board", the logic behind this being that there was not food available 24/7. True, there wasn't, but there was never more than 2 hours between the end of one service and the beginning of the next. All drinks are included except "speciality wines" and champagne. The local brew is Banks (not Banks's!) and is perfectly quaffable. Mark on the Beach bar is or was the wine steward at the very very upmarket Cliffs restaurant, and I found the French house white nicely chilled and very drinkable. The staff are immensely helpful and friendly and "You're welcome" is the response every time. The rooms are perhaps a little basic, but air conditioned, clean as you like, and regularly and immaculately serviced. The food is Barbadian, not meat and two
