Sunset at the Palms
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Ok so i will try to be brief in my experience some of my pros may be cons to the reader and vice versa but here goesHotel wAs beautiful very green and clean and beautiful wood structure ( not a piece of concrete in the entire resort) a draw back was it was a little warm even in the room with the ac on full blast 60 degrees the rooms stay about 75 degrees because of the wood structure did hold the cool air well, with the wood vented windows. Mosquitos are a problem make sure you bring OFF deep woods because all dining is done outside unless you call for room service and mosquitos out day and night. Birds are really friendly and sometimes land on the bar where the food is. Also the rooms aren't very sound proof you can hear the crickets and frogs chirp ALL NIGHT but kind of relaxing. There is a mosquito truck that sprays the property everyday but because the rooms are so "airy" you have to smell the the pesticide for about 15 minutes.Staff very friendly and warm no complaints at all about them!!!!Hotel is not on the beach you have to cross the street to the designated section of the beach for the resort but beach front very nice and beach front food tasty. All and all was totally worth the money would go there again
Let's start by saying that we don't usually do all inclusive hotels much anymore, because most of them are too big and crowded for our liking.... THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE ALL INCLUSIVE HOTEL!! We are SO pleased with our stay, we definitely will go back!! This is a very personalized, select and private property. There are only a small number of accommodations, therefore not as many guests, so the staff gets to know the guests very quickly, which makes it feel like a home away from home! This resort seems to attract a very good quality crowd, and by that, I mean that guests are very respectful of each other and the staff alike, which is very important to us in enjoying a vacation. But most importantly, the staff is fantastic. Everyone left a very positive impression on us, with no exception. We have particularly appreciated Sharon's friendly service, always with a smile and great positive attitude! We always looked forward to Sifford's class and professionalism at dinner, as well as great conversations!! Chef Opal is an outstanding young talent, and I noticed how she displays confidence in public speaking while presenting the different courses during the Chef's Showcase. Although the singer by the name of Tia is likely not a direct employee of the hotel, we were amazed at how talented of an entertainer she is, she's the one that got the crowd going the most during the whole week!! I really enjoyed my private nature walk presentation with Headley.We really like how the buffet has a perfect balance between international and local dishes ( which, by the way, are prepared in a very authentic way).The treehouse-style accommodations give a very romantic feel to the vacation. We took a lot of pictures of the vegetation and birds (especially the Doctor Bird) around our treehouse.The set up for the beach is great! We really like how there is a lot of nature and trees on the beach grounds. It maintains the theme of the property as a whole. There is never any issue whatsoever regarding getting a chair at the beach, as there are more chairs and space than there are guests. The water is very calm, and the beach very clean. No seaweeds at all. Spent a lot of time in the water, either just sitting in shallow water while relaxing, or doing swimming laps across the perimeter (that's how calm the water was).You can watch beautiful sunsets at the beach, but also amazing sunrises early morning, looking towards the mountains, from behind the 700's treehouses.The gift shop is small but still has a lot of variety. We found their prices exceptionally low,even compared to local markets. On top of that, they have a day or two with 50% off all clothes, which was a real steal!!! Unless you're looking for something specific that they don't carry, it's not worth looking outside of the resort as far as prices go.The gym needs some of their equipment repaired (leg extension, leg curl, and one other one).We highly recommend this property to any nature lover who values quality over quantity!!!!Carl and Sonia
The staff were very professional and took pride in what they did. The hospitality was amazing. Many friendly people who became friends.The resort superseded above their reputation. The tree top environment was amazing and the grounds were well groomed. Security was provided at the private beach and food was always available. Bravo...to all of the staff of Setset at the Palms!!!
The Property:This is truly a magnificent property. You feel like you are in a tropical paradise. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Pool is nice but small. Don't plan on doing lengths. The gym was a disappointment. 3 treadmills but 2 of them were broken. The resort has also chosen to rent out yoga mats for 5 dollars a day. Really? Paying over 2000$ Cdn for a week and they ask to rent the mats is cheap.The Room: Bed is comfortable. Balcony is great. Room needs some updates though. The TV is an old tube model from the last century. A digital safe would be nice too. We had problems with the old style key model. Wi-fi is sketchy. Overall some sprucing up would be welcome.The Beach: Across the road but not really an issue. 5 minute walk max. The beach itself is small but great. Sand is soft. No rocks. A private beach with no one hassling you. The big downside is there is no access to the 7 mile beach. SATP is on Bloody Bay. not the 7 mile.Food:Overall good but not outstanding. Beach Grill was excellent. Kevin makes a mean jerk chicken. The main problem with the buffet was a lack of fresh fruit and salad. You expect a greater selection for the price you pay. Lots of cake though if you like that.Service: The staff, to a person, were friendly and always there to help. They seem to enjoy working there and the smiles are contagiousThe Verdict:It is certainly a calm and peaceful resort. It could be so much better with some small adjustments including a better selection of healthier options at the buffet. Life does operate at a slower pace at SATP and that is its true appeal.
This is not like any other all-inclusive resort I have been to--in best way! Each tree house bungalow (most containing two units) is landscaped. The entire space is beautiful and relaxing. The smaller scale makes the experience more personal. Many of the tropical plants are labelled and you can take a tour with expert gardener, Headley, who obviously loves what he does.There is a crossing guard to the beach which is also beautiful, with a resort bar and grill--and a beautiful sunset. Evening entertainment includes a piano bar with Mr. Tucker, who also loves what he does--and often a band, later for dancing. Food included more Jamaican dishes than I have seen elsewhere--and lots of vegetables at every meal, both pluses. The seated restaurant options were good change-ups from the buffet. Our bungalow near the pool and designated outdoor smoking area seemed loud at night, before 11:00 PM, so if noise is a concern you would want to stay away from that area. In room WiFi was inconsistent.
