We loved being right at the beautiful turquoise water's edge. Enjoying exceptional scenery by day & relaxing to the soothing sound of the waves by night. A highlight for us was snorkeling right off the beach! Huge variety of tropical fish and other aquatic life to observe. Chuck the owner will personally take his guests snorkeling & provide them with...

We had an awesome time. The location is close to everything, beautiful ocean front rooms with patios overlooking the surf, great snorkling on the reef right out front. Staff was so friendly and accomodating, but they are on "island time". We found the resturant at the Palms among the best on the island. Chuck can recommend the best of diving,...

I can't say enough about this place. Customer service doesn't seem to be a #1 priority on islands, but it sure is at The Palms! I have never seen a resort owner involved as much as Chuck is. Our first day there, Chuck and Mitch took us to Point Udall for a nice little hike and some awesome snorkeling at...

Because there are so many interesting and fun places on St. Croix, we want to make sure our guests have an opportunity to see them. Of course we are really big on snorkeling here at The Palms, so a regular hike and snorkel into other great snorkel locations is a natural fit. Glad to hear your comments on the restaurant,...

The location of the Palms is wonderful, since it's not too far from down town Christiansted. It was $10.00 cab ride one way, which was affordable to do activities such as Buck Island snorkel, sunset cruise, kayak... The Palms also had great food & drinks with activities such as trivia night, carribean buffet w/Moko Jumbies, sunday bruch... but most of...
