Good location right in the middle of the gap. It has a huge frontage right on the sea front, staff are good throughout and rooms are ok, best to upgrade slightly here. we have been four times and the last opted for a better room and was bigger about as close to the beach as possible and was a lot...

We selected this hotel to have our Holiday and Wedding due to the wedding package being tasteful yet affordable as we just wanted to keep it small and simple. The Wedding Rep/Receptionist (Jenni) is a fantastic lady and was very helpful not only with the wedding arrangements but also when she was on duty. As well as Jenny the staff... More

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Southern Palms at the end of August. Our first impression was one of dread as we were driven through a shanty town by our taxi driver and stopped just out at the end of the road opposite our hotel. However, do not let this put it off because as long... More

This hotel was fantastic. Great value for money, clean and comfortable. The food was delicious. The location was perfect. It is fairly quiet but there are lots of lively bars in the area. I would highly recommend it!

We have just returned from a week's stay at Southern Palms. From the moment we walked in we knew we had made the right choice. The reception area was lovely with a beautiful view of the pool and beach. The rooms are basic but have all you need for a holiday. The beach on which the hotel sits on is... More

We stayed in Southern Palms for 12 nights and as a family of 5 (2 adults, 1 teenager and two children) absolutely loved it! The hotel is situated on Dover Beach and is definitely the most beautiful beach we have ever been to. The website displays photos of the beach practically empty with palm trees and sunbeds underneath and this... More

Just returned from our second visit to this lovely hotel and we were not disappointed, everything was as we remembered. Staff were friendly and some even remembered us from our previous visit which was nice. As some people say the hotel is in need of some updating but this somehow adds to its charm, the rooms are clean and comfortable.... More

We have just returned from a wonderful 3 weeks at the Southern Palms. We travelled as a family of 6 with 3 adults, 2 children and 1 teenager. Between us we had an ocean view room and a luxury suite in the crescent terrace block with a fantastic view over the beautiful beach and sea. Both rooms were spacious, ocean... More

Having been to Barbados 5 times before, this was my first time staying in a hotel and I really enjoyed my stay at the southern palms hotel. The hotel was nice & clean and rooms were comfortable and spacious. The room included a large double bed, double wardrobe, chest of drawers and a refrigerator. The only small downfall was that...

I have recently returned from this delightful hotel after spending two weeks holiday with my husband. The hotel is not as modern as most hotels we have stayed in and is in need of some updating, however the rooms were spacious, extremely clean ( fresh white towels regularly)and the bed was extremely comfortable, with crisp white bed linen. The location... More
