Halcyon Palm
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I absolutely love staying here,it's in a ideal location spot,but very quiet and secluded. The staff are fantastic and very helpfull.would love to say to everyone interested you must stay here as is very good value for money,but then hope it doesn't mean I won't get a room by telling you all. It is basic,so of your looking for luxury it's not for you.

We stayed at this place in late April 2013 and had a great time. The deal we got online was amazing compared to what they charge in person when you walk in. Rooms were clean. The place was mostly quiet. Not too many annoying European tourists with their smokes in your face which was quite refreshing! Most importantly, the place was so easy to get to despite how the taxi driver touts made it seem at the airport! All you have to do is walk out of the airport and catch the bus headed for Speightstown and ask the driver to let you off in Sunset Crest which is a bit outside of Bridgetown. The hotel is within a short walk from the bus stop at Sunset Crest.

Room Tip: All the rooms face the pool, but the rest of the guests were very quiet and considerate.

We stayed here over Easter and had a really lovely time, the rooms are maybe a little basic but with plenty of space and everything you need, a nice little pool that was never crowded (actually for our second week we were the only ones staying there) The staff are really friendly and helpful, and its really good value especially for the west coast. It is within easy walking distance of the beach, and shops and restaurants in Holetown. I would defiantly stay here again.

Ideal for some peace and quiet in an almost secluded area, off the road yet easy access for transport and shopping area is very close by. The staff is friendly, warm and very accommodating. The layout is neat, extremely clean and well maintained. The rooms are spacious, yet cozy and clean. I have stayed here before and had a few problems which they made sure to rectify on this last visit and they made sure I was comfortable. There is however some room for improvement as places do get run down but so far they are doing a good job with the upkeep.

Room Tip: Upstairs apartments are more refreshing.

My wife and I have stayed many times at the Halcyon Palm over the past few years. The property is attractive and well kept. The pool, although rather small is adequate and very well maintained. The units are reasonably spacious, furnishings are aging and kitchen equipment leaves a little to be desired. The staff are very helpful and will search for a can opener or ice cube tray that will do the job, just ask. The location in Holetown is perfect, easy walk to everything including the beach. The price is right here if you are looking for average accommodation rather than luxury.

Room Tip: Unit #1 rocks! No one upstairs, veranda does not look into any other units.

I am not sure which cohort of the tourism market this place is aiming for but it certainly is not the one I belong to. This is not a property for a business trip, period. The night I arrived was late at night but they had this information. Upon arrival, the hotel was dark and nobody around. I mean, nobody was there. The reseption was locked, the guard had disappeared and basically I did not have a place to sleep. I had to tell mi taki driver to take me to another property to spend the night (the Discovery Bay, which is waaay overpriced, incidentally). Since my company had arranged my week at the Palms Resort, I had to return the following day. The following days it was just a set of shocking events: the telephone did not work, the 5 days of wifi internet cost USD40 (!!), the cooks cannot have breakfast ready on time for 5 people at the same time, the rooms stink (old and like Korean kemchi!), there is only 1 remote control for the air conditioners of all the rooms, if you need it, you have to request it at the reception and bring it back, the tv has only 3 working channels, if you want a restaurant to eat (outside the hotel) you need to walk some 15 minutes or call a taxi and pay USD10 each way; they clean the room every other day and NEVER pick up the garbish. These are only a few examples. I was very disappointed and in the future will look for a better place myself.

Room Tip: Just do not stay here, really.
