I'm considering either the Southern Palms or Whitesands for my honeymoon next year. I have read lot's of helpful reviews about the places but I am still undecide wether to go to the north or the south. I've heard that the beaches are quieter and nicer in the south and that at the Southern Palms the beach boys are not allowed to approach you when you are on the sun beds, would this be true of the Whitesands???? The only thing putting me off the South is the 1.30hr transfer time, is it worth it? We'll also be booking the Tsavo east/west safari for 2 nights so I'd like to know which of these two hotels would be easier to travel from.
I would be grateful for any replies and also if someone could make up my mind for me...decisions, decisions.
