We have just returned from a week's stay at Southern Palms. From the moment we walked in we knew we had made the right choice. The reception area was lovely with a beautiful view of the pool and beach. The rooms are basic but have all you need for a holiday. The beach on which the hotel sits on is... More

Just returned from our second visit to this lovely hotel and we were not disappointed, everything was as we remembered. Staff were friendly and some even remembered us from our previous visit which was nice. As some people say the hotel is in need of some updating but this somehow adds to its charm, the rooms are clean and comfortable.... More

We have just returned from a wonderful 3 weeks at the Southern Palms. We travelled as a family of 6 with 3 adults, 2 children and 1 teenager. Between us we had an ocean view room and a luxury suite in the crescent terrace block with a fantastic view over the beautiful beach and sea. Both rooms were spacious, ocean... More

Having been to Barbados 5 times before, this was my first time staying in a hotel and I really enjoyed my stay at the southern palms hotel. The hotel was nice & clean and rooms were comfortable and spacious. The room included a large double bed, double wardrobe, chest of drawers and a refrigerator. The only small downfall was that...

The location... More

As a family we regularly visit the island as my partner and his family come from Barbados originally, having moved to the UK and USA. We have a very large extended family and like to meet up every 2-3 yrs to hold a family reunion. Our last visit was in 2011, we stayed at the Divi Winds, just a few... More

I have been to Barbados 4 times before & rented apartments, first time in a hotel. This was great for the beach, we walked out of our room on the ground floor 50 paces & we were on the beautiful beach at St Lawrence Gap, if you wanted a more lively time in the bars & clubs they were a... More

We stayed here in the last two weeks, the 4th time we've stayed at Southern Palms. The only thing that lets the place down is that it needs some renovation especially the ground surfacings. That said there are more important things to consider, you would be hard pressed to find more friendly and helpful staff, from Reception to cleaners and... More

Staff were helpful, polite and couldn't do enough for you.Highlights included swimming with the turtles who were regular visitors to the beach,... More
