We arranged for 60 guests to stay at the Southern Palms for our destination wedding. We could not have been happier with this decision. We had guests from all around the world (US, Canada, Japan, the UK, and Mexico to name a few) of different preferences and purchasing power; with all that said, we had 100% satisfaction rate. I cannot... More

We actually did not stay at this location, but we did visit there. We stopped in and asked for some local info. We watched the fish in the pool for a bit. A few days later we returned to watch the fish again, then went to the outdoor pond to see the turtles. While we were looking, the man cleaning... More

Hotel is on a great location, Sea view is a must Staff friendly and polite, especially Richard. They always say good morning and smile. On the evenings on the Gap you do get asked alot if you want a taxi but if you reply no thank you they often make a joke and leave you alone. Eaten at most of... More

Stayed at Southern Palms for 9 days with three other families. Exceptionally clean rooms and facilities, friendly and helpful staff, good food, empty beach, and quiet. Perfect getaway. We will definitely return.

We had a wonderful stay at Southern Palms, perfect location, one of the best beaches in Barbados, lovely wide stretch of white soft sand, palm trees, lots of space (compared with others where beach chairs are all lined up and packed like sardines, my idea of hell!) and we even got to swim with turtles right there, magical! The hotel... More

The hotel is in the best location. We arrived at 1:00am into Barbados. We jumped into a cab to the hotel which took about 15-20 minutes ($20). We arrived at the hotel dropped our luggage off and headed out to the bar which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is in such a quiet location... More

I like many others do not understand the high ratings for this hotel. We were not greeted in any conventional way; surly reception staff who told use we would pay a deposit for beach towels and rental for the room safe (!). Chastising a guest on arrival for "interrupting" when we asked a question was unfortunate to say the least.... More
