We’ve been all over the island this week and must say this place has the best views. The beach is so close to the bar/restaurant and the pool. We stayed at the condos and they were great. BUT please note that everything is really short handed so to get into restaurants takes time and patience. Even at the Palms restaurant we had to leave after about 30 minutes of no service. So just stock up on food and what you need and then consider it “gravy” if you get into restaurants and get served. We finally ordered take out from the Chicken Shack last night (about 10 minutes from here) and it was amazing. Take out from Paradise Pizza was awesome too. Missing a lot of great seafood. When we were here last you could get grouper, red fish, snapper and flounder. Now it’s a lot of pizza, hamburgers, etc. just know before you come. Also the beach in front of the condos and hotel is unswimmable due to rocks but in front of the restaurant (which is just a 5 minute walk) is great. Some great snorkeling too. There is a great place where you can order some snorkeling gear (that’s basically new) and they’ll deliver it to you. Some highlights were Buck Island and the bioluminescent kayak tour. Fredericksted was pretty dead and a lot of the island reminded us of Haiti. Bucanner beach was pretty nice but crowded and food was really expensive. Cramer Beach is kind of hidden but worth it. Got some great food at Rythms on Rainbow beach but again crowded.

We really enjoyed our Stay at the Palms. We didn’t have any issues nor did we see any roaches or bugs in our 12 rooms! The rooms are huge and the suite is the size of a condo. The rooms were cleaned daily and sanitized. I will really say that some folks have given this place a bad review unjustly! Sure, they are understaffed but everyplace is due to the pandemic. The owners were visible, accessible to the guest and the nicest people ever! The views are SPECTACULAR!! The pool was clean and there were adequate flotation devices and lounge chair...the ambiance is just wonderful. The food was good, however I think it depends on the cook who is on shift. The drinks were good and did I mention that the view is Spectacular?? The islands was hit back to back with hurricanes, so recovery takes some time, they are doing a great job making this prime property live up to its potential. It’s a Boutique Hotel that’s adult only perfect for honeymoons, a quiet getaway or a birthday celebration as we did. The front desk staff was pleasant, helpful and quite accommodating contrary to what was written in other review. I am a Travel Agent and I glad I booked this location for myself and my group. I will be recommending it to my clients. I will return and I will stay at this location in the same room!! Don’t sleep on this place! PS..All beaches in St. Croix are public. It is not the responsibility of the hotel to clean the beach and they can’t deny access to anyone even kids. As far as the grounds are concerned, they are well kept but trimming the dead Palms off the trees would be my suggestion.

Waist of time and money!! Terrible service!! Treated very poorly by upper management and wait staff. Restaurant and bar was hands down worst service we have ever received. Waited for over 20 minutes to be greeted after being sat and then only to receive poor service.

The room was clean and front desk people were friendly and helpful. No safe or phones in the room. Trash on the grounds, rubber gloves, bottle caps and other debris that were never picked up the week we were there. Pool was clean but no one to take your order for snacks or drinks. You had to sit at a designated table at the bar and wait for them to eventually show up. Signs are everywhere for the dos and don’ts of the place. You will spend your stay trying to read them all. If you don’t you will be punished your entire stay for missing one. Especially in the bar restaurant areas. You will probably flunk this test since they are so confusing. A few nice words would go a long ways from staff. Especially covering what is expected with their Covid restrictions. We found the bar and restaurant staff to be poorly trained and/or very condescending. Every time we ordered food it was a very long wait and we were constantly trying to get their attention for condiments that were needed for our meals. To make things worse they were rarely even busy. We did have lots of fun going to town and visiting other places on the Island. Hope you enjoy your stay. We will be trying somewhere else next time
