I have reviewed The Palms once before, in 2010, but my girlfriend and I have stayed there for a few nights each winter since then, and I wanted to thank the Palms crew for another great visit earlier this month.
The coziness and hospitality of this hotel--and the beauty of its setting--have kept us coming back year and year. The restaurant and bar feature great food, drinks, views, and atmosphere, and the beach and nearby coral reef are perfect for snorkeling. The rooms are in good shape following renovations completed since my first visit.
Our time with Chuck, the owner, was the highlight of this past trip. He sought us out at breakfast to help plan our day and later took us on our first night snorkel, when we got very close to a large spotted eagle ray.
Do rent a car and take time to explore St. Croix. No trip is complete for us without a drive to the East End and an evening dining outside in Christiansted.
