“The Palms was our Paradise Cove!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2009

From the moment we arrived, the staff was friendly - helpful and attentive. Taking care of all our needs to make our stay the very best experience my family and I have had in 13 years of traveling. Our rooms were promptly and professionally cleaned daily (with fresh flowers). The view from our hotel room balcony could only be described as breathtaking.
Every staff member (from the owners - front desk - bartenders - resteraunt servers to the cleaning and security crew) always had a smile and friendly hello which made us feel comfortable and relaxed. They are truly like an extended family that made us feel at home.
I would recommend this hotel to EVERYONE that is considering a vacation in St. Croix.

If we could give the Palms a 10, we would. We had a memorable stay and marriage (we eloped). Let me begin with Julie, she made us feel as if we were special guests from the moment we arrived, showing us around and letting us relax at the bar with a drink on the house while our luggage was sent to our room. Both Julie and Dickie also made our wedding exceptionally special and stress-free; beautiful service, tropical flowers, made-to-order cake; and thanks to Stephanie, our photographer (great pix), and Louise, our minister (beautiful ceremony). More thanks to our housekeeper Velma, she took really good care of us and our room; the bartenders all made great drinks, Jovan, Willie, Allison, and the sweetest Conan, who also helped serve us when dining. And I must give credit to the front desk, Pat, Danny, and again Dickie (you’re the ‘bomb’) for being the most helpful. And just a few words about Chuck and Joyce, the owners. Wonderful people! Treated us as if we were ‘guests’ in their home. Met Chuck’s sister Mary and daughter Carley, and her friend Abby, in which we all went sailing to Buck Island with packed breakfast sandwiches made in their restaurant. Again, great people! Chuck is the ‘snorkel king’, so make sure you go snorkeling with him. We ate delicious gourmet food for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurant. We also give the restaurant a ‘10’! The room had a beautiful view (we now know why it’s called Pelican Cove), a really comfortable bed (no problems sleeping in ‘a ‘foreign bed’), a bottle of Cruzan Rum when we first arrived, and fresh tropical flowers every day. Oh, and remember to ask about Chuck’s cove for snorkeling at the front desk. Loved this island, loved the Palms, loved the people!

The Palms is a great resort for relaxation and family fun. The owners, Chuck and Joyce, are some of the nicest people out there. He took us on a wonderful snorkeling tour and called us to come see a green sea turtle nesting! The staff was absolutely wonderful and waited on us hand and foot. The rooms have a great beach feel, the grounds are beautiful, and the ocean view is indescribable!!! And did I mention the food? It's great! Also, if you like to snorkel just walk fifty feet off your porch and dive into the magnificent water world. The Palms has it all- no need to even leave the resort!!! My family and I will definitely be returning for years to come!

The Palms at Pelican Cove has so much to offer. We traveled around St. Croix by car, and noticed many of the island hotels may offer waterfront locations, but the Palms is beachfront (and what a view!). It has a perfect beach for sunbathing & an excellent reef for snorkeling! They also have a pool, open air bar & restaurant on the water. We noticed a great deal of wildlife during our stay at the hotel (pelicans, herons, lizards, crabs, geckos) as well as an abundance of tropical fish, starfish, eels & a stingray while snorkeling at the hotel! (we also saw horses & chickens while driving around!) Lots of beautiful coral, shells & sea glass cover the beach. The staff is fabulous and very attentive to the needs of the guests. The front desk staff (especially Dickie) were very knowledgeable about things to do on the island, and they offer free snorkeling. They absolutely bend over backwards to make your stay memorable and make sure you are enjoying yourself. We happened to be upgraded to ocean-view (and what a fabulous view it was!), and were much appreciative of the complementary bottle of rum & complementary welcome drink. The food was very good, and the location was perfect. It was a very romantic setting & very private (there were many days we were the only people on the beach). Note--the beach is a turtle nesting area, so the chairs are carried in for the night to allow turtles to lay their eggs. The Palms was a perfect paradise for those looking to escape the hustle & bustle of the mainland. This was also an escape from the typical touristy hotel--you never have to wait for a chair on the beach or a drink at the bar. We also saw a beautiful sunset wedding (hello and congrats to our new friends from King of Prussia!).

We really enjoyed our stay at The Palms at Pelican Cove. We were greeted warmly by the staff and felt comfortable right away in our spacious and well appointed room. The rooms have sliders onto a private patio overlooking the ocean. The main room and bathroom were very clean with new linens. Our king-sized bed was very comfortable. We ate many of our meals in the hotel dining room, and the food and service were excellent. We especially enjoyed our breakfasts in the covered dining area overlooking the ocean. The pool area was well maintained with both sun and shade available. The restaurant bar was nearby for refreshments. Walking on the beach was great with spectacular views of Buck Island and Gallows Bay. We were given free snorkeling lessons, which we enjoyed more than a commercial snorkeling trip we took on the island. The number of colorful fish and coral right outside our door was amazing! The overall atmosphere of the hotel was laid-back and relaxing. The staff was always there and ready to assist us with our vacation plans on the island, and had many good suggestions about things to see and do. We can't wait for our next trip!
