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...

Had a wonderful Ocean View room right on the beach with a veranda area to protect us from the few storms we encountered while we were there.

Hotel was recommended to us as a relaxing chill out vacation and they were exactly right. Stayed for 10 days after a slight flight delay that I will add Virgin airlines staff were excellent. Arrival at the hotel was polite and informative. Staff at reception, bar, restaurant even around the pool area were found to be courteous and always found...

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...

Great location for an oceanside evening meal and great food. It wasn't particularly busy when we went but that made it all the more intimate. Great to sit and eat and listen to the ocean waves crashing on the beach. Great prices too. All in all top class.

We found ourselves without a bed for a couple of nights and decided to stay at Southern Palms, having been a frequent bar and Red Men nights visitor since our first visit to Barbados in 1998. We had seen the staff in action and were always impressed. The reception staff are superb ambassadors for this delightful hotel. Seams unfair to...

We stayed 6 nights from 12-18 September, when the hotel was pretty quiet. It is located at the far end of St Lawrence Gap in grounds which the security guard said measured 1000 feet (300 metres) from one end to the other. But there are, we were told, fewer than 100 rooms and as these are grouped in various blocks...

Overall a good value hotel. Rooms- we stayed in a garden view room which was clean but extremely dated. If you can I would recommend paying a bit more for an upgraded room. By way of example there were bathmats at either side of the bed instead of proper rugs. I would say pretty much all the rooms probably have...
