There is a restaurant and bar ( which serves food also),swimming pools and recreational facilities.The restaurant serves a great breakfast and has themed dinners/lunches when music is also provided. Ther is also a happy hour in the... More

We have just returned from our second stay at the Southern Palms and enjoyed meeting the friendly staff again as well as our main reasons for re- visiting which were the wealth of excellent amenities. We love being so close to the beach, the pool, the cocktail bar and voice of many restaurants nearby. For us Southern Palms is a... More

We have been going to Southern Palms for more years than I can remember. As soon as you arrive you unwind. The staff are all people we have known over the years and they are lovely and are pleased to see regulars return. Ready access to Dover Beach is great and you can spend many an hour walking up &...

Just the best place to chill out and relax. Fabulous, fantastic, friendly people work at this non-pretentious hotel, right on a magnificent and stunning beach. Ocean view means exactly that, with a comfortable balcony that traps the sun. Watching baby turtles start their lives with their struggle of enormous effort to get to the sea, is inspiring and emotional. If... More

Stayed for one week at the southern palms, great location, right on the beach and just a few mins walk to all the bars and nightlife. Room very clean, spacious balcony and sea view, all staff helpful and friendly. A special mention goes to Sandy who runs the water sports for telling us about the turtles hatching on the beach...

The rooms are well equipted... More

We went to listen to the Calypso steel band at the hotel,we were not staying there, if we were perhaps our experience would have been different. The band was great, would gave better had they been able to play their own set, not a Calypso version of your average family party disco tunes. We went for cocktails. Service was slow,... More
