We've stayed at SP on many occasions and have always had a wonderful time. This trip was no exception. The staff are it's greatest asset (even the management are quite good! ;-) ). Always greet you with a friendly smile and ready to help. The location is fabulous. I doubt there's a hotel on the island with a better beach...

This is our second visit to this hotel and we found it just as good as our first visit, the location is excellent on beautiful Dover beach which was never crowded with plenty of sunbeds. Air conditioning was excellent in the room, the bed was very comfortable and it was very handy having a fridge to keep our essentials cool....

12th visit for my sister and I was as wonderful as ever - like coming home! We are always greeted as old friends by the reception staff, housekeeping, security, bar/ restaurant staff and also the management. The hotel is ideally situated on Dover Beach - where we're fortunate enough to watch turtles surfing in the water or popping up next...

I stayed a week at Southern Palms. We booked the lowest category room and were quite disappointed upon arrival but luckily the hotel was not full and they did give us a different room which was much better- brighter and better located. Room 138 is great- I would recommend going up to the full kitchen though if you can swing...

We have been drawn back to this hotel 4 times over a number of years when deciding to return to Barbados. The external fabric is a bit crumbly but internally the rooms are well decorated, clean, comfortable and have air conditioning, tea making facilities and a fridge. We have always booked 'room only' but a range of different boarding arrangements...

This hotel is beautifully located on a stunning Barbados beach. With ultra friendly staff, superb food and bright airy rooms the hotel will draw you back time and again. We met a couple on their sixth trip. It has two swimming pools, direct access to the beach and entertainment. With tea and a cake each day at 4 o'clock what...

We stayed for a week in this hotel; our first visit to the hotel and to Barbados. The hotel can in no way be described as luxurious by international standards, but it proved to be a great base in a great location. It was not too far from the airport and in a good location in St Lawrence Gap, very...

Just returned from a 2 week stay and am just going to review the hotel itself as so many talk about things in the surrounding area. Greated well on arrival and shown to our room - 3rd floor overlooking small pool and beech. Perfect as we had asked for a high floor and paid for ocean view. Room was ok...

“We were in a larger room on the east side of the restaurant which was excellent. We also heard good reports about the classic rooms on the west side. We had a sea view and a balcony which we upgraded to and which was well worth the cost.”
