“had a great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

No regrets about staying here. Lots of good snorkeling right off the beach. Its not really much of a sandy beach for relaxing and swimming. But if you have a really young kid, I did see a mom at the waters edge with her child, 1st few feet was all she needed. After that, not really a sandy bottom. The bar tenders were all GREAT. And riding in my rental car, this was the place I heard the radio on the radio-"and tonight at the Palms" etc. They have stuff going on at times that brings in locals and guests from from other hotels. Its not the Waldorf and I dont want that anyway, but the rooms were still real nice and very clean. All the staff as friendly as can be. Good food. I'd definitely go back!

Room Tip: I did request a new shower curtain-thats the only bad thing I can say otherwise I would have gave 5...

Stayed for a very quick getaway. Staff was helpful and friendly. Rooms were immaculate. Especially loved the rock wall feature if the shower and the wooden bathroom caninetry. Had a lovely dinner...particularly love their "backwards wings". (This is a twist on regular buffalo wings in that they are deep fried then dipped in blue cheese. Your dip is the hot sauce.) The beach is not a "swimming beach" but go off and explore some of the other excellent beaches on the island. Be prepared to run into an iguana or three. I was not too happy about that! Lol. All in all, a well managed property with good services and amenities. I will definitely visit again.

This trip and vacation was the best ever! Made several wonderful friends. No one is a stranger at "The Palms." Personal attention to the tiniest detail given by owner Chuck Fischer. Fabulous foods and the bar tenders know how to make all the wonderful island drinks! The accommodations were 5 Star! Thanks, Chuck, for making my stay memorable!

Clean, newly updated bathroom, gorgeous views out sliding glass door, walked right onto the beach from patio, (really going to miss that view) we were provided snorkel equipment and used for day and night snorkel w/ chuck ( owner). Used on our own too. Night snorkel was one of the highlights of our trip. Chuck takes underwater photos of ur adventure and then provides them to you! Thank you, chuck as I can now have photos from that awesome underwater adventure. Wait staff at restaurant and bar a pleasure. Easy walk from room to restaurant/bar and pool area. What a relaxing and lovely time we had. Met some locals and enjoyed the stories and info they had to tell us about the island of St. Croix. Here is a shout out to our friend, Tom. Pat in the front office was very helpful every time but especially after tropical storm was approaching and we needed to rent a car at last minute. Can't wait until we can return again! Hoping it is soon!

By reading some of the reviews, there's clearly a segment of people that can not be pleased! It is pretty clear to me that the majority can! To the naysayers, you can tell by the gas prices as you drive through town, that things are expensive here. If you were to take a little break from your self centered life and your phone texting and actually have a conversation with the locals, you could learn a lot about life on the island and just how expensive it is to live there, much less run a business there. I suggest to these people to stay in a fancy big city hotel and watch us have fun on the Travel Channel.

As far as our stay, my wife and I fell head over heels in love with it. But, we're the types that like a lot of space and enjoy the outdoors. Our room was well appointed. I can’t think of anything we needed, with the exception of some beer and bourbon. A little bottle of Rum was already in the room. We made a quick run to a local store, where you can pick up snacks, liquor, and beer! With our mini fridge stocked for the week, we were ready to explore the island.

My wife called the desk to see about getting some advice about places to visit. We met with a guy named Chuck who had plenty of information and we had our week planned out. Much of the travel information he gave to us you wouldn't find on Tripadvisor. Let me just say this, they have the same type of yahoos on the island as we do on the main land. We listened to his advice, and as they say on the island, there was "no problem."

I really liked the beach and the grounds in general. They seemed natural but there was constant cleaning and manicuring. We had a nice view of the ocean with swaying palms and blooming flowers. We enjoyed our coffee on the porch every morning and watching the resident anoles going about their business. We are really into nature. We came here to dive, but ended up doing a little hike just to soak up the island. If you’re into that type of thing, but don’t want to hike, I'd suggest grabbing a drink and walking the grounds. I especially enjoyed seeing bats in the twilight of sunset. The orange glow and the silhouette of palms was just beautiful. Did we see chickens? Yes, once. Did we have a problem with it? NO! They have gone ferral on the island, just like they have in Key West. We found them to be a novelty.

As for the food at the restaurant, we fall on the liked it side, really enjoyed breakfasts and burgers particularly! And Mat is in the bar is like a Black Belt Bartender!

As I mentioned before, we loved the place and we enjoyed the staff. Kudos to Matt, Lewis, Erin, Julie, and Chuck! We appreciated your kindness and hospitality. It is killing us to miss a quarter after 6:00!

Room Tip: I like the bottom floor myself for watching the birds and lizards etc. Great place to sip coffee in...

We stayed at the Palms at Pelican Cove during the Fourth of July week. We booked a beach front room. It did not disappoint. Each morning we woke to the beautiful Caribbean waters, the palm trees blowing in the constant gentle breeze, not to mention the mild temp, made for a very pleasant vacation. There was even a night of entertainment, discount for the hotel guests, with dancers on stilts, fire dancers and live music. One necessity, bring mosquito repellent - they can be quite a pest.

Room Tip: Beach front rooms are a must.
