We stayed at the Palms at Pelican Cove for 1 week in mid- April. We were traveling with a four year old and a 6 month old baby. We found the hotel extremely family friendly. Our four year old spent the entire time in the pool. We found the food to be extremely good. Almost everything we tried was delicious, the Carribean Night on Monday night is a must, the food was very good and the entertainment was fun. The Moko Jumbies (men on stilts) was a huge hit for the 4 year old. This small family run resort is seated right on the ocean. It is perfect for the views and if you like snorkeling there is a good reef right offshore. The location is too far to walk to most things, thus we had to get a taxi to and from town ($12 each way). Well worth the visit a few times, the old fort in Christiansted is fun to roam around and there are very good restuarants in town as well. On Thurs nights there is an Art Walk which is fun to go attend...most stores and galleries provide wine and cheese, it is nice to browse the different galleries. The most favorite thing about our room was the patio that was a few feet from the ocean. Amazing views to wake up to every morning. The staff was extremely kind and very attentive. There are mosquitoes, so bring repellent, it was a life saver for me...they preferentially feed on me. Things I did not know before I came, they drive on the oposite side of the road, be aware of this if you plan on renting a car. We did not rent a car this time around, but on our next visit we will do so. Overall the vacation was truly relaxing and we loved our time at the Palms and will return again, hopefully next May for their 1/2 Iron Man. Kids will love this resort!!
