This was actually my third stay here at the Southern Palms as a fairly large group and as always it was amazing. All the staff are friendly, genuine and quick to help with any problems. I stayed in a three person room and it was spacious and cleanly and the view was great! The beach is right on your doorstep... More

We had a lovely relaxing time , a friendly welcome started the holiday off just right, we got the room we asked for and the wonderful view, my only quibble with that was it only had a double bed , not good when you need room to move around...

The hotel is located on the beach an excellent location. It needs a bit of a makeover but in general it is good. The room was okay but the bathroom was a bit run down. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and very helpful. It is a few minutes walk to the bars and restaurants and there... More

We stayed room only in the hotel because we like to explore different dining places and do not like to be tied into meal times or staying in one bar. The room was good ,in a fantastic position overlooking the beach only 15 yards away. St Lawrence Gap is a special location, it is very picturesque with a constant pleasantly... More

We only stayed one night prior to going on a Star Clipper cruise so it was part of the package we booked. Therefore I cannot give a very detailed review. I think the big plus point for the hotel is the location. It is not too far from the airport and cruise terminal in Bridgetown and is right on a... More

I'm amazed this hotel has largely very good ratings. For me it is a typically run down Caribbean hotel benefiting from being in a great location with good staff. We booked for one night only to pick up a cruise the following day, we immediately noticed that everything about the hotel screams poor maintenance,, from very dirty paintwork to broken... More

My first impressions was that the hotel was a little dated and needed an update. But, the staff were very friendly. Rooms always clean. Great location on beach. Great entertainment. Good service. It was a very special birthday for me, so much appreciated. Food was good.

Probably one of the best positioned hotels in Barbados, situated towards the middle of St Lawrence gap but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle. Huge beach where turtles can usually be spotted coming up to breathe. Try the Bajan fishcakes with rum punch, at happy hour which is 6-7 every night except Monday and watch the sun... More

My partner and I stayed for a week whilst on a cricket tour. We had a fantastic stay. The room and facilities were clean, comfortable and spacious. The staff were most helpful and friendly and went out of their way to assist us. Of course the location is great due to proximity to a beautiful beach and numerous eateries and... More
