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...

We stayed for two weeks in the super saver room which was great value, the view to a shed did not bother us, the size of the room was good with plenty of storage space and a large comfy bed. Our only criticism was of the shower, it dribbled rather than showered you with water, which also tended to be...

Nice place and beach. I invite my sister to spend a long weekend there. We use that hotel as our headquarters to exore the island. The food instead requires to be more diverse. Rooms are okay. There is also a store inside the hotel

The hotel is wonderful, we could not fault the staff or the accommodation or the food, we had the breakfast option included and it was cooked fresh and plenty of choice. (well done to the egg ladies) Our room was in the main area and clean and well laid out, we did expect some noise but that was ok. What...

We have been staying at Southern Palms for many years now and have never been disappointed with any aspect of our stay. Wonderful staff ( most are familiar faces) really make a difference in a holiday and each year we are greeted warmly by Edric, Richard, Allie and Jenny to name but a few. Britta does a fantastic job of...

This was our first time at Southern Palms, but will not be our last. Our room was ideal, as our terrace overlooked the pool on the ground floor. The hotel is not huge but well laid out with the main pool and bar and restaurant being quite close together. There are plenty of places to sit either in the sun...
