Quiet Relaxation Feb 11, 2009
This hotel is situated at the end of St Lawrence Gap, making it convenient for visiting the local bars, restaurants and clubs. It does, however, attract a slightly older crowd as well as sporting groups (whilst staying there in February 2009 there was a group of teenage American athletes doing winter training and then the Grenadan football team).

The hotel is comprised of three blocks of accommodation : Flower, Calais and Goldwater, each offering a different setting and view. I stayed in the Flowers block which is a garden block and slightly separate from the main hotel. I stayed on a room only basis booked via www.expedia.co.uk and paid GBP57 a night (including taxes and service charges - worth noting that Barbados charges a 10% service charge on all services, including hotel rooms and restaurant bills).

My room comprised of a sitting/dining area with kitchenette (with ceiling fan), bathroom, balcony and separate bedroom (air-conditioned). Soap, shower gel and shampoo are provided from wall-mounted dispensers. The hotel provides beach towels on check-in and these can be swapped for fresh ones at reception each day (US$10 payable for loss).

The hotel has a pool, bar/restaurant, fitness and meeting rooms.

Free WiFi is available in the reception area; a separate internet room with computers is available for those travelling without a laptop.

Take a taxi from/to the Grantley Adams International Airport - BS$35 (US$18).

Unique Qualities: This is a smaller, quiet hotel and will not appeal to those looking for St Lawrence Gap's party atmosphere.

Immediately at the beachside of the hotel it is rocky; access to the beach is via a small ramp to the side. This beach offers little shade and the hotel's sun loungers are not allowed on the beach.

The manager hosts a rum punch party every Tuesday evening between 6:00pm and 7:00pm which is useful for meeting other guests if you are travelling solo.

The hotel operates a 'no unregistered guests' policy so if friends are visiting they will not be allowed into your room.

Dover Beach Hotel Overview

The Dover Beach Hotel is a great Christ Church hotel that includes three blocks (Calais, Goldwater, and Flowers) that is all located in a quiet veranda just off the lively St. Lawrence Gap. 'The Gap' is known for its ample range of shops, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. Calais is found on the beach, Flowers is found in the bright tropical gardens, and Goldwater is an island structure that supports its own gardens. The Dover Beach Hotel is located just a few minutes' walk from the famous St. Lawrence Gap nestled along the beach.

All of the rooms at the Dover Beach Hotel are equipped with air-conditioning, telephones, radios, safes, cable TV, full bathrooms, and balconies views of either the ocean or tropical gardens, and full kitchenettes with both stoves and refrigerators. There is also housekeeping that is offered daily.

The Dover Beach Hotel is completely family-owned hotel and is serenely located near the energetic St. Lawrence Gap. The hotel features a pool and sundeck, a poolside snack bar, wireless Internet throughout the property, valet laundry service, currency exchange, 24-hour security, beach towels, fax and copy services, and even a meeting room. There is little that this hotel cannot offer or provide.
