After reading many excellent reviews of the Palm Court I booked a four night stay there for my boyfriend and I. We wanted something close to the beach with great service and clean, comfortable rooms.
We arrived at the Palm Court at 2PM and found the reception area closed and locked. There was a telephone and a note to dial 9 to speak to someone. The person on the other end told us that the reception was closed till 3PM and we had to come back later. We had just arrived from the freezing New York weather, fully dressed in jeans and coats. We wanted to make the most of our short trip and put our stuff away so we could get to the beach right away. However, not only were we unable to access our room, we also had nowhere to change or store our luggage- what a disappointment! I wish we had been informed of this and I would have planned accordingly, instead of having to schlep my stuff around for an hour.
Once we checked in Alex and Sylvia were apologetic and friendly. The room was large and clean but nothing extravagant. The beds were fine and the patio was nice.
Over the weekend Alex and Sylvia were not there and the people attending to us were very unhelpful. I came to the island expecting the hotel staff to help us book arrangements such as a snorkeling trip and found them very unhelpful.
All in all, the Palm Court was decent. Do not go expecting first-class service or accommodations. It is a reasonably priced place, close to the beach with a pretty decent free breakfast.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Palm Court is situated in Orient Bay, just two minutes walk from the beach and all local amenities. Orient Beach is on the windward side of the island, so the hotel is blessed with the cooling Caribbean trade winds for most of the year. The breeze not only keeps the temperatures comfortable, but also provides ideal conditions for watersports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. ... more less
