We are here at the moment in a top floor pool/sea view room. We arrived later than scheduled but we were warmly greeted and shown to our room. Initial impression was that the bathroom was a little tired ! However, the hotel/ staff and superb location on the best stretch of Dover beach make this hotel fantastic. The location is...

Old colonial style hotel with only 2 storeys high. Rooms are a bit dated and bathroom could do with being refurbished but everything works. Good sized rooms with 2 big double beds and decent balconies. Fridge and kettle in room but no coffee or tea provided. Supermarket is just across the road. Great views and on the beach so choice...

This place is very nice and has a wonderful beach. The food is good and the entertainment was nice. Our room was small but adequate. Water sports are available. Adults only, no kids. Very nice pool. The place has a quiet charm to it.

Having visited Oceans Two (St Lawrence Gap) 4 years ago just after it had opened I was a little worried about Southern Palms as it obviously isn't as new as Oceans Two and I thought it may be a little dated! It definitely didn't disappoint! Location is perfect, close to restaurants, reception staff were very friendly and nothing was too...

Been staying at Southern Palm's for years and it never disappoints. Attractive Basian low rise buildings spread out over one of the best beaches in Barbados with room to find your own spot and palm tree. Maintains it's friendly atmosphere with many of the same staff year in, year out and a short walk to a selection of good restaurants.

We too were put up here when a Virgin flight was cancelled. Our rooms left us feeling quite vulnerable-it was 1a.m. When we checked in. A very pleasant man took our luggage. The rooms were stuck in another era and we'd just spent Christmas in a villa so it was a real downer to find hairy bathrooms, glass panelled front...
