I have stayed here twice and both times have been great. The service is great and although the hotel is a little on the quiet side, if thats what you want then this is perfect. great location and the sun is always shinning. i love barbados and will always return.

Just back from Southern Palms. Love the space on the beach and the access to The Gap if you want to go for food or drink. Service at SP is relaxed but efficient, and rooms differ so you will always find one that suits. We were in 232 and would recommend. Britta and team are great hosts and worth a... More

Southern Palms has got it all! Charm of the Plantation style buildings on an absolute pristine beach complete with palm trees and beautiful white sand. They are only a two story high unit so the ratio of guests to beach is superb. BUT not to be outdone by their customer service all around. Whether it was email from home, checking... More

Wonderful hotel, beachfront hotel with lots of beachfront seating two pools and a bar too. This October we spent lots of our time catching baby turtles attracted by the hotel lights maybe not a good point. The hotel restaurant was great and the rum punch party on Monday evenings are fab too. Great hotel and staff.

Southern Palms, right on the beach 1000ft frontage, step from terrace straight on to beach then 30yd walk to a warm, warm sea. We had intended to do so much but the place was so laid back that we just lazed around, wonderful.

I come to Barbados every year and in my opinion it is everything I said in title. Location is perfect.. Hard to top the beach. Tyrone, June and Mr. Roach and newbee Simone give the beach bar it's warm friendly personality. On it's entrance from beach it says "all are welcome" and they are. You can get best expresso Martini... More

Booked into hotel next door, bit dull compared to Southern Palms, but some of my friends stayed here. Wish I had. Met my friends by the pool every day at the Palms. Sunbathed, wandered along the beach, drank beer, cocktails. listened to Steel band a couple of times and was even given afternoon coffee and cake. Although they knew I... More

We went with another family, for kids in all. Everyone was pleased with their order, ranging from fish sandwiches to pasta Bolognese. Drinks are two for one between six and seven PM. It's a good restaurant and in an exceptional location. Music starts at eight many nights.
