We stayed in Southern Palms from 11th - 18th March 2012. We got married there on 15th March. I could sum this place up and ALL the staff as absolutley amazing. The hotel is situated on a beautiful beach with palm trees and golden sands, step out your door to the pool then onto the beach with free beech towels, sun beds and water sports and someone always at hand to help you. We met a number of couples all had been back here many times so I think that says a lot.
The hotel is only 3 storey high and covers a large area with beautiful pink blocks of rooms with balconies looking over the sea. The room was basic but was clean and had hair dryer, iron etc. all you need for a fab holiday. We did have to pay 3US$ per night for our safe but no big deal. All charges for drinks, food etc. bought in the hotel are put to your room which means no money needed when your on the beach (just worth keeping an eye on how much your spending so you know approx. how much you bill will be). The grounds are very nice and well managed.
Our wedding was aranged by Jenni. We e-mailed her prior to going and told her we were planning to get married there. She booked the day for us, sent us the info and told us to just arrange everything on arrival which we were slightly worried about, nothing was paid till we got there. As it happens there was no need to worry, Jenni met us the first day, sat down and simply explained everything we had to do and pay, really simple. There was only two of us there so nothing to worry about, she arrange a taxi for us with Michael, a really nice guy who took us to the ministry for a certificate and waited to bring us home. Then we sat back, enjoyed our holiday, then got married. Flowers, photographer, minister, amazing setting, free cake and champagne. Out of this world. Later that evening I asked for a candle lit dinner on the beach for us..........Jenni was on it and there it was, beautiful with the steel band playing at the hotel in the background and Donna a fab waitress came out and looked after us like we were the only two people in the hotel. Everyone spoke and wished us well and a few small children ran over to give my wife flowers as we had our photo's taken on the beech.
The area around the hotel is clean and plenty of places to eat and drink. We found it safe but best just to keep your wits about you as you would anywhere in the world.
Jenni, Donna and all the staff at Southern Palms we can't thank you enough for making our stay so amazing. O and also Manty Cooper took our wedding photo's, she is a lovely person with reasonable prices and an amazing photographer, I would recomend her to anyone.
We WILL be back!!!!
