South Palms is a well renovated property with beautiful rooms, facilities and a beautiful clean beach, however the food was okay and due to a conference there was a lot of noise via a large speakerphone.
The property is gorgeous and I found the rooms very nice with extremely comfortable beds. The gym was fantastic and the games area was great also. It was unfortunate that our stay coincided with a conference, as the group (about 40 pax) played games on the beach where they had an announcer on a very loud speakerphone which could be heard around the pool, beach and restaurant. (The people themselves weren't annoying, just the loudspeaker).
I recommend getting the breakfast/dinner option as there are no other food options in the area and the a la carte menu is incredibly expensive in comparison. The food is okay, some food was delicious but it was mostly average-good. The variety of food is good, and each meal I found a few delicious dishes. Others have mentioned a lack of food, however I found that food was replenished within 10-20mins. The service was excellent and the staff we spoke with loved their job and were extremely helpful.
I would stay here again however I would double-check to see if there are any functions booked as the loudspeaker ruined the atmosphere!
