The good: an amazing beach, close to good breakfast places, including Bliss, Sharkey's and Happy Days, all of which serve better food for the price than the hotel. Local dinner places, including Cafe Sol and Castaways are worth a visit, as is the cafe at the Yellow Bird Hotel. The rooms here are adequate to moderately upscale, and more than...

We had a nice stay at the Southern Palms. We were expecting a higher quality/mid-luxury resort based on the pictures and the price, but that was not the case. We still had a wonderful stay. The location is excellent in St. Lawrence Gap. It's on the end so it's nice and quiet and a three minute walk to the center...

Loved my stay at Southern Palms. Excellent location. Beach amazing. Front desk staff and security friendly. Room was clean, but a little dated. I arrived prior to check-in and my room wasn't ready. I sat by the pool and within 30 minutes the desk clerk found me to inform me my room was ready. My only complaint would be the...

Stayed here as part of an England Cricket Tour. Wonderful position on the long beach!! Spacious ground floor room with sliding door to patio, seven paces to the beautifully maintained pool and 20 paces to the beach.... Two double beds, great shower, in room safe they wanted US $3 a day for, which is a mistake on their part. Making...

Friendly, professional staff, good food, and most convenient location. No car required for most things. Loved the smaller, more secluded pool too. Fell asleep listening to the surf rushing up the beach outside my window. This hotel stays consistently at the top of the list.

We were upgraded to an executive suite, which had its advantages, but meant an awful lot of stairs every day. Everything is very laid back and Bejan pace, and the hotel sits directly on the beach.. Dinner was a mixture of a la cartè and buffet throughout the week, and I feel there is room for improvement here.. Breakfast was...

We have stayed here twice and what a lovely hotel it is. the hotel is clean and welcoming, as are the rooms. Stepping out on to the white sands of Dover Beach is wonderful, and watching the turtles while having lunch is great. We will defiantly be going back!

My husband and I just got back from Southern Palms where we celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary. Also, this was our second visit to the hotel. It was as amazing as we remembered it from the first time. The front desk upgraded us to an ocean front suite which was perfect! Service was awesome. Grounds could not have been cleaner...

We have eaten at most of the rated restaurants along The Gap and loved the setting of the above so we thought we would try lunch ... a superb choice!!! A lovely welcome to non-residents sitting in front of the ocean and alongside the pool under an unbrella we had the best rum cocktails of our visit on The Gap....
