We stayed at the Southern Palms for a week in October for our honeymoon. On arrival we were given a friendly greeting and taken to our room. The hotel had kindly upgraded us to an Oceanfront room and we had a bottle of wine, bottle of rum and a basket of fruit waiting for us. We loved everything about our...

We have just returned from our first visit to Southern Palms. We were greeted with a bottle of Rum and two bottles of coke in our room when we arrived, a lovely touch. We had an ocean view room and what a view it was. This hotel is sat on one of the best beaches in the Island, white sand,...

Even though being near a good restaurant/bars/nightclubs area (St Lawrence Gap), the hotel is also in a beautiful and quiet beach (Dover Beach). Most of the rooms are just a few steps away from the ocean, what can be very convenient. Me and a friend stayed in a double bedroom garden view, which is not luxurious but it is clean,...

We stayed here in April/May 2014. An absolutely fantastic hotel, facilities brilliant staff lovely and friendly, couldn't do enough for you. It was amazing one night sat in the bar that they brought a tub round full or newly hatched turtles, something that we will never see again. It is worth paying the upgrade to an ocean view room, the...

I have stayed here twice and each time the Southern Palms was fantastic. Service was impeccable, beach idyllic, location great and atmosphere tranquil and relaxing. The hotel itself is getting a little tired (the walkways are getting a little sun-beaten, some of the plumbing fixtures are in need of repair for small leaks) but I would suggest that only the...

I had the opportunity to visit the Southern Palms Beach Club on a Saturday night. A wonderful location in the famous St Lawrence Gap, right on the beach with palm trees blowing in the gentle ocean breezes. A very romantic atmosphere, with disco lights, little tables situated around a shimmering pool, and a good dance floor, and waves rolling in...
