This is the 3rd year to South Beach on Mothers Day weekend. We have stayed at The Loews Hotel (meh), and The Kimpton Surfcomber (enjoyed). The Surfcomber was booked so we chose The Palms after a friend recommended it. From the moment we arrived we knew we made a great choice. The lobby decor is sophisticated yet relaxed, the pool area is like an oasis....gorgeous landscaping, nicely appointed with great chairs and umbrellas, pretty pool, tiki huts to order drinks or lunch and an easy walk to the beach.
Our room was spacious, comfortable beds and attractive bedding. Every single staff member from the front desk to the wait staff to the girls who worked in the small gift shop were friendly, accommodating and extremely pleasant.
We plan to return next year and are so happy to not have to hunt for a great hotel in SOBE as we have found it! Thanks to all. Can't wait to return!
Regarding the construction noise that has been mentioned regarding the hotel going up next door, we did hear a little bit on Friday afternoon....but it was minimal. Saturday and Sunday no workers on site so it was very quiet.
