“Absolutely the best place to stay in St. Croix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2009

We are so glad that we found this jewel in the Caribbean. The Palms is situated on the most perfect beach in St. Croix. We stayed in a modern beach front room with the most gorgeous view of Buck Island. Hawaii has nothing on this beach which is a fabulous place to snorkel. From the moment we arrived, we were treated as if we were very special. The staff is very friendly and a lot of fun to talk with and learn from. We felt so comfortable and at home, it was difficult to leave. The grounds are spacious, quiet, safe and well maintained. The food at the beachside restaurant is excellent; the service was impecccable. They even serve several varieties of fine the Belgian ales that my husband loves. We couldn't have had a nicer vacation. What a perfect birthday present for me! We will definitely go back, but next time we will stay longer.

My wife and I had the best vacation either of us has ever had. Chuck and Joyce are committed to getting to know and helping out their guests. The full staff at the Palms are very friendly and were a joy to talk with. All were eager to help make our vacation a completely worry free and relaxing time.

Our room had the perfect view, the owner took us snorkeling and set the bar so high in serving us that we would be foolish to not stay there on our next vacation. I don't know how a vacation could be better, but we'll see next year.

The Palms at Pelican Cove was a wonderful mix of quiet and peaceful during the week and a bit busier on the weekends, which was perfect if you needed a little bit of both. The pool was extremely refreshing as I used it every morning and was delighted to find it so tranquil and spotless. The Palms gives you a individual personal feeling and Chuck and his wife are wonderful hosts. I would recommend this little piece of paradise to anyone

We had a fantastic time. The staff, Dicky from the reception desk, Mama G, our housekeeper,, Allison at the bar and the entire restaurant staff were some of the friendliest and efficient individuals we have ever met!

It is very obvious they all truly enjoyed working for Chuck, the owner, who was also fantastic and very involved with making sure his guests have a wonderful experience.

We traveled with a 22-month old active toddler and the staff were great with him!
JJ, Allison's nephew ,was a fun playmate in the pool with him

The food was good and reasonably priced. Great beach and good snorkling. Room is in need of renovation and is on the books as building 2 was underway when we were there. Suprise was a comp drink at the bar for both of us and a comp bottle of Cruzan rum. Need car to get around. Every one was very nice and eager to help. Pool was nice and warm. Take bug repellent as the no see em bugs are bad.

Albert48, Managing Director at The Palms at Pelican Cove, responded to this review, December 26, 2009
St. Croix has been blessed with many good restaurants. In fact, I regularly hear from guests that every place they have eaten on island has been outstanding. That's good, because it sets our standards high. And it matters greatly to us here at The Palms that our restaurant and bar be second to none on island for quality and value. Thank you for your reassurance. As you point out, we are in the midst of some room renovations and are almost half done. However, because we keep the disturbance isolated and at a low level, many visitors are unaware that they are underway at all - and that's good. All of our arriving guests are treated to a complimentary beverage at our bar (to unwind), and to a bottle of our island Cruzan Rum in their room (to remain unwound). We appreciate you staying with us.

I stayed here for a business trip recently. Nice location and nice staff. Free liter of rum with a few cans of coke at check in, as well as a complimentary cocktail at the bar. All good in my book. On top of that, the food marks high by Caribbean standards, in taste, speediness of service, and price.

My wife and I both agreed that this was the best trip either of us have ever had and we have done a decent amount of traveling throughout the years. The island was beautiful and an absolute blast, especially for travelers that like to explore. Rent a jeep and see the island for yourself. There is so many wonderful places to see and discover. Mix with the locals, they are precious people and always willing to guide you in your adventures. The Palms at Pelican Cove was great and at a beautiful and convenient location. The beach at the resort looks like something straight out of a Corona commercial and there is awesome snorkleing on a reef just in front of the resort . But what really made our trip so amazing was the people at the Palms. Everyone made you feel so comfortable and at home. Even the owner and his family, who we met by chance, showed us hospitality like we have never encountered anywhere else during our travels. When you go you have to meet Mama G. She is one of the housekeepers there and she is such a wonderful lady. I could go on for days and never cover all the great aspects of our trip. Simply put, we can't wait to go back to the Palms for a second visit. This is unusual for us because we usually like to explore new places. However, an experience like we had at the Palms at Pelican Cove is not easily forgotten and therefore I hope we can return time and time again. We now feel like the Palms and St. Croix are our new home away from home.
