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...

This is the second visit to Southern Palms, and i have to say it was just as good as the first. On both occasions we have stayed in a garden view room on the ground floor so your a few strides to the lovely pool and a few more strides to the superb gorgeous 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

To be brutally honest when we first pulled up outside the hotel it was a bit disappointing...don't really know why...don't know what I was expecting....we usually holiday All inclusive known brand hotel chains...so maybe was expecting it to look something like these....but we went here for a change from the "could be anywhere all inclusive complex" to make us go...

Wow, what a fantastic view. You couldn't wish for a better location for a hotel. The hotel itself is looking tired in places but compared to the rest of the hotels in the area it is very clean and well attended too. We booked through Virgin Holidays and the room was described as a "super saver room" and that is... More

We stayed at the Southern Palms for a week in October for our honeymoon. On arrival we were given a friendly greeting and taken to our room. The hotel had kindly upgraded us to an Oceanfront room and we had a bottle of wine, bottle of rum and a basket of fruit waiting for us. We loved everything about our... More

We have just returned from our first visit to Southern Palms. We were greeted with a bottle of Rum and two bottles of coke in our room when we arrived, a lovely touch. We had an ocean view room and what a view it was. This hotel is sat on one of the best beaches in the Island, white sand,... More

Even though being near a good restaurant/bars/nightclubs area (St Lawrence Gap), the hotel is also in a beautiful and quiet beach (Dover Beach). Most of the rooms are just a few steps away from the ocean, what can be very convenient. Me and a friend stayed in a double bedroom garden view, which is not luxurious but it is clean,... More
