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.
