Southern Palms is right on a long sandy beach where turtles lay their eggs and we saw a large large Hawksbill Turtle laying eggs one night and most nights there were hatchlings scrambling around in the sand needing to be collected so they could be counted etc by the 'Turtle Group'. The turtles were an added bonus and we learnt... More

What a beautiful place to stay! Some say it's not luxury but what exactly do you do in your hotel room apart from sleep and shower? It had everything we wanted, always clean and tidy, 2 swimming pools, right on the beach, a few minutes walk to The Gap. Upon arrival we was made aware of everything there was to... More

This hotel and staff ticked all the boxes for a perfect holiday . The beautiful beach with palm trees for shade, a pool with umbrellas also, good food and friendly staff esp. Chad and on reception Jenny were very helpful. Sandy took us out on the Hobbie cat, a lovely sail along the coastline. Our room overlooking the beach had... More

My daughter and her friends stayed at this hotel 2 weeks ago. The hotel is pleasant, the beach is lovely and the location is good for tourists as there are lots of bars and restaurants along the gap. My daughter came out to Barbados for my wedding. Unfortunately, whilst we were celebrating the wedding, jewellery and money was taken from... More

We first stayed at the Southern Palms in Jan 2002 and vowed we would return. This time we received the same high standard of service we did all those years ago from Britta Pollard and her fantastic staff! Nothing is too much trouble to them. They all make your stay as pleasant and as comfortable as possible.....with a smile! The... More

Located right on Dover Beach, great location, room good with nice view, food average esp Saturday night pie night not great at all. Bar staff didn't make us feel welcome compared to other bars, always seemed an effort to serve you.. Nice Pools. Afternoon Tea is a nice touch

We were first booked at Accra Beach Hotel for 5 days, it was a disaster from checking to our decision to find alternative accommodation. We were so fortunate that Britta Pollard was able to help us out in a professional and efficient manner. The staff and food were first rate and everyone friendly and accommodating. The location and facilities are... More

Little nervous about booking but glad I did. Not luxury, but clean, comfortable, amazing beach/location. Staff was was severely lacking in customer service. and no nightlife. Within walking distance to many many restaurants - all reasonable price, but if you want a "nice" restaurant, take a taxi to one of the mega resorts. I woudl go back here for the... More

This is our second visit after an interval of 7 years. Why did I leave it so long? This hotel meets my standards for being clean, well maintained, friendly and good value. And it's on Dover beach. The rooms 203/4 appear to have been refurbished and are larger than I expected. Daily maid service is excellent always unobtrusive, with clean... More
