We stayed here for 5 nights - the room was massive, beautiful and very clean. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The pool was great because there were not much people using it. And finally the location was great too, less than a 5 min walk to the beach! All in all we were very happy with our stay... More

booked to stay 3 nights but we extended it to 6 nights as we found the stay pleasant. When we arrived on our first day we were not happy with the room as we were given twin beds when we had requested a double bed. The staff were able to offer us another room that was to our satisfaction. The... More

We had a choice between chain hotels and boutique hotels. Travelling from India, it was a bit of a risk not going for names we had experienced elsewhere. But from the arrival to departure, it was a wonderful experience, steeped in local flavour. We were given an early check-in, and the staff, along with the manager were really polite and... More

We stayed at Palm beach for 2 nights in June 2014. Location good but place very tired looking. Needs a complete makeover. Things like broken hair dryer in bathroom, broken safety deposit box, no force on shower at all. Just a dribble. When I enquired about having the safety deposit box looked at I was told by hotel manager that... More

Hotel is within 5 mins walking distance to the beach. Tuk tuks available from hotel to shops about 8 mins ride. Will definitely... More

Close to the beach (just 200 m walking distance). All the rooms are overlooking the nice garden with swimming big swimming pool. Nice, big rooms. Good breakfast and very nice staff. Maybe some details could be better, like the shower which did not work well and even after two remarks had not been repaired, or there is only one socket... More

When my husband and I first arrived, we were not happy with the room that was given to us. After we expressed this to the staff, they were able to quickly provide a different room that was to our liking! We stayed for about 4 days before going on to the north of the Island, where we actually stayed at... More

Stayed here in February for one night before flying home. The best thing about the hotel was the swimming pool which seemed clean and well kept. The bedroom seemed good on the surface but then we discovered the floor was filthy and towels smelly. The aircon worked fine but the room smelt of cigarettes and there was no fan so... More
