We came here off season (July 14) to get cheap rates, and it was wonderful. Rooms are mid-range, but perfectly comfortable, with massive terraces attached. Main advantage is the location: slap bang on Dover Beach - pale sand, blue sea, and no competition for sunbeds or palm trees on the beach, although I bet it will be a different story... More

Arrived here on Thursday 3rd July and stayed on the island for one week. On arrival we were greeted by the receptionist, who showed us to our room. The room was basic but had a lovely pool and beach view. The hotel itself had lovely friendly staff, good food and live entertainment throughout the week. This hotel is ideally situated... More

Went with the family for a long weekend in June 2014, a quaint hotel, with ocean view rooms, and balconies that open onto the beach. Great breakfast friendly and lovely staff who cater to your every needs. Situated in busy St. Lawrence gap with nice restaurants and nightlife, perfect for those who don't want to rent a car. Bus and... More

My wedding was held at the Southern Palms and the staff here is excellent! The beach is beautiful as well as the suite I was in. The food was great! The only downfall was being in a room at the top of the stairs. Pretty hard to drag your luggage but besides that, we had a wonderful stay as well... More

This hotel is right on the beach with very pretty grounds that are well kept. The hotel buildings aren't your usual run of the mill and are also very pretty. The food was great in the restaurant and there are also great choices of restaurants all along the gap...the location of this hotel is amazing. We were upgraded to a... More

Great location for sampling the restaurants in The Gap and getting out and about. Main buses and Reggie buses can be got at the top of the gap or take the shortcut - following the little road right of the chinese then bear to your left and bus stop is there (5min). You can get a bus to take you... More

On arrival had to approach Reception to be acknowledged, no welcome just straight into costs for towels, safe etc. Door to room was faulty day one and talked down to when I informed Reception that the temporary fix didn't work. Misleading advertising didn't help, eg tthe Beauty Spa was a hair salon and the gym was tiny with unsecure equipment.... More
