This was our first stay at the Southern Palms. In our opinion the best location in the Gap. We stayed in a garden view room and still had a great view of the ocean from our balcony. The room was clean, the shower worked great and the bed was extremely comfortable. Had a little problem with the A/C, but this... More

Journey was good and transfer from airport easy and quick - we paid for private transfers, but won't bother next time - will just get... More

This was a return visit to Southern Palms after a gap of 15 years, we have been to other hotels and Islands since and after having dinner here in March decided to book for December. We were not disappointed the room was just right with a good view of the sea and cleaned every day with fresh towels etc. The... More

I have been staying here since I was 9 years old… I have visited over 10 times and there is a reason we keep going back. We stay in a suite where we have our own kitchenette… we usually make breakfast there every morning. The staff are wonderful and polite, the hotel is gorgeous and the beach- wow. It's always...

Booked a week here through our local travel agent. Not disappointed. The staff on site are really friendly and helpful, and nothing seems to much trouble. Good choice at breakfast time, especially in the outdoor splendour of viewing the ocean. also great venue for eating evening meals, either in the restaurant or at the bar, or sitting around the pool...

We have just made our fourth visit to this lovely hotel. We are very much pensioners (84 and 78) who went for another relaxing break in a a beautiful area. All the hotel staff were extremely helpful and very understanding towards our needs. As always, the room was spotless and very well serviced. The only drawback for us, was people... More

We initially booked this hotel as we had a great deal using up our Avios points. There had been some mixed reviews on TA when we booked but we thought as long as it was clean we’d be happy. But wow – what a great hotel, I can’t praise it highly enough. We had an ocean-view room with a balcony... More
