The Palms was just our style. Not ostentatious yet very enjoyable. The food was delicious and the portions were perfect. We visited during the first week in April at the end of the popular season which was perfect.
One tip: Don't sit under the palm trees at poolside unless you don't mind having a "friend" literally drop in on you! (See pictures). Mr Iguana landed 6 inches behind my lounge chair and I'm sure the shrieks were heard in Christiansted! One more tip: take your GPS with you if you are renting a car at the airport. It's a tricky place to find without one.
Rooms were clean, large and the bed was very comfortable. (Same pillow top as home).
Soooooo, good food, clean room, comfortable bed, quiet surroundings and friendly staff. What more could you ask for?
Try them out. We'll go back for sure.
