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

We stayed here in April/May 2014. An absolutely fantastic hotel, facilities brilliant staff lovely and friendly, couldn't do enough for you. It was amazing one night sat in the bar that they brought a tub round full or newly hatched turtles, something that we will never see again. It is worth paying the upgrade to an ocean view room, the... More

I have stayed here twice and each time the Southern Palms was fantastic. Service was impeccable, beach idyllic, location great and atmosphere tranquil and relaxing. The hotel itself is getting a little tired (the walkways are getting a little sun-beaten, some of the plumbing fixtures are in need of repair for small leaks) but I would suggest that only the...

Hotel was recommended to us as a relaxing chill out vacation and they were exactly right. Stayed for 10 days after a slight flight delay that I will add Virgin airlines staff were excellent. Arrival at the hotel was polite and informative. Staff at reception, bar, restaurant even around the pool area were found to be courteous and always found... More

I had the opportunity to visit the Southern Palms Beach Club on a Saturday night. A wonderful location in the famous St Lawrence Gap, right on the beach with palm trees blowing in the gentle ocean breezes. A very romantic atmosphere, with disco lights, little tables situated around a shimmering pool, and a good dance floor, and waves rolling in... More

Great location for an oceanside evening meal and great food. It wasn't particularly busy when we went but that made it all the more intimate. Great to sit and eat and listen to the ocean waves crashing on the beach. Great prices too. All in all top class.
