“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2010

We stayed in the poolside Casita and couldn't have been more pleased. Although it doesn't have an ocean view, that wasn't a big deal for us. We were on the beach in less than a minute. The Palms' location is fantastic, with all of San Pedro's restaurants and bars within a short walk. We were in San Pedro for the diving and dove through Ramon's dive center, which is right next door. We made all the arrangements through the Palms and everything went off without a hitch.

I woud certainly recommend the Palms to anyone staying on Ambergris Caye. We stayed in the Casita (the one free-standing unit next to the pool). Although there was no ocean view, we certainly didn't miss it. It felt as though we had our own private house and pool.

Another nice amenity was the utility sink located outside which made it very convenient to rinse out our scuba gear. Nice touch, I wish every hotel offered this feature.

If you're interested in diving, the dive shop in right next door at Ramon's. be sure you ask for Turiano as your dive master. We went on 3 dive trips with him and he showed us some amazing sights.

Restaurants: Went to Pineapple Grill (at Ramon's), Lazy Croc BBQ (didn't see any crocs, sorry), Blue Water Grill, Pinocchio's, Red Ginger (great food, odd atmosphere), Hidden Treasure and Sunset Grill (fed the fish and one ate my ring!). All were really good.

Love this place! Would certainly go back.

I would come back and stay here again. Small building with many apartment suites with kitchen and a small pool; staff pleasant and laid back. Oceanfront location was perfect and convenient to Ramon's dock and town. View was breathtaking!

My wife and I stayed at The Palms for our honeymoon and had a great time. It is walking distance from the Tropic Air airport (don't need to rent a golf cart to get there). The view doesn't get any better than this. We had a second floor suite, where the balcony looked straight out to the beach. We took pictures of the sunrise from our balcony and on some days just sat on the balcony and relaxed. The staff was friendly and helpful and set us up with all the trips. There was a pool at the resort, though I'm not sure why anyone would swim in a pool when the clear ocean water is a few steps away.

The service at the Palms is outstanding. Everyone was so friendly and went out of their way to make things pleasant and make you feel like you are at home.
Our room was wonderful. Very clean and the perfect location for me and my fiance. I could lay in the sun and he could be in the shade at times. I would definitely want to stay in room 12 on a return vacation!
The location is perfect. It is right in the middle of San Pedro. You could really walk just about anywhere...and I love that when you get off the plane at Tropic Air you are right down the street, you really wouldn't even need a golf cart!
The best part to me is the location of the Palms and the room location we had. I can honestly say that there isn't anything about the Palms I didn't like....It is all around a wonderful place to vacation!!

We stayed at the Palms with 4 other friends and between us had a 2 bedroom and a 1 bedroom unit. We all raved about the place. It was well stocked and spacious. We really enjoyed the balcony (better on the 1 bedroom unit) and spent many a morning there sipping coffee and watching the beach activity. The staff were great - be sure to take advantage of the offer to pre-stock your refrigerator before you arrive with drinks!

One downside is the pool isn't beach facing. Because we were there in January (over NYE), it was cold and no sun to warm it up. Might not have been a big deal in the summer if it was warm but no view.

But overall, I'd highly recommend The Palms. Can't beat the proximity to bars and restaurants and the comfort of the rooms.

One of the cleanest, well-maintained, safest facilities in San Pedro. The Palms is perfect if you want to be near town, if not, The Victoria House.
