Wonderful

We've stayed at SP on many occasions and have always had a wonderful time. This trip was no exception. The staff are it's greatest asset (even the management are quite good! ;-) ). Always greet you with a friendly smile and ready to help. The location is fabulous. I doubt there's a hotel on the island with a better beach front.Some of the rooms are a little 'tired' - especially the bathrooms, but that doesn't distract from the enjoyment. After all, you don't come to Barbados to spend time in your hotel room.It's also nice to see some life returning to 'The Gap', after several quiet years.

Great Location

This is our second visit to this hotel and we found it just as good as our first visit, the location is excellent on beautiful Dover beach which was never crowded with plenty of sunbeds. Air conditioning was excellent in the room, the bed was very comfortable and it was very handy having a fridge to keep our essentials cool. Complimentary cake and tea/coffe at 4pm was a nice touch. This hotel is very handily placed for some excellent bars/restaurants and cafes.

Paradise found

12th visit for my sister and I was as wonderful as ever - like coming home! We are always greeted as old friends by the reception staff, housekeeping, security, bar/ restaurant staff and also the management. The hotel is ideally situated on Dover Beach - where we're fortunate enough to watch turtles surfing in the water or popping up next to you while we're cooling down. Beach is great with just enough shade from the palm trees and a gentle breeze to cool us down. Food is fab, whether it's in the main restaurant or from the bar and prices are reasonable. Thanks to everyone for making this years stay so wonderful - we'll be back!

Wonderful Location

I stayed a week at Southern Palms. We booked the lowest category room and were quite disappointed upon arrival but luckily the hotel was not full and they did give us a different room which was much better- brighter and better located.Room 138 is great- I would recommend going up to the full kitchen though if you can swing it budget wise.The hotel staff are very nice, the hotel never felt crowded and we never had trouble getting a lounger or chair. The beach is great although a bit rough. If you walk to the left to the end of the beach the water is calmer. Sea turtles can be seen right from the beach- awesome.Pure Ocean restaurant next door at the Divi was really great and the location and setting were awesome. Restaurant on site at Southern Palms was just OK- their Pub menu was better than the buffet ( imo)Pizza across the street is good, BLISS Café down the street about 5 minutes is AMAZING! Just Grillin' in Rockley was amazing and has great jerk!The resort is quiet and geared to older crowd. Entertainment 3 x weekly was good but I wished there was entertainment nightly. Great of you just want some R&R .

Wonderful Southern Palms

Just returned from a fabulous 10 days at this hotel.Stunning beach, plenty of sun loungers, towels provided. Weather perfect.The rooms are a little dated but didn't bother us one bit. They are clean and roomy and housekeeping top notch. Kettle provided as is iron and ironing board. Beds comfy and air con fabulous.We only ate in the hotel restaurant once and as others have said it is a little pricey. The hotel is situated in a perfect location with plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. The staff are all lovely and friendly and very accommodating. We have no complaints in this department. We only used the swimming pools once but these are cleaned constantly and kept in good condition. The loungers around the pools are more comfy than the beach ones but do get taken quicker.Keep a look out on the beach for the turtles, they swim constantly right in front of the hotel and are a joy to watch.We used the ZR public buses which are 2 Barbados dollars per trip and we went all over the island using them. For longer trips the larger blue bus at the same price. We picked the buses up outside Divi Southwinds along the Gap which is convenient to Southern Palms. (Not for the faint hearted but good fun).The gift shop stocks everything but again rather pricey but beautiful items for gifts etc.When we needed a taxi we used Michael opposite the hotel at the little taxi shack. Prompt, honest and reliable service. Best restaurants by far was Champers, choose the set meal at 118 Barbados Dollars. Outstanding !!At Pebbles Beach try the fish cutter Cuz. Best on the island.We would return to Southern Palms in a heartbeat !!
