We met Ben and Clare last year on our trip to Exuma. We thought they were so great that we came back to Exuma this year, just because we wanted to stay with them. We have never done the same vacation 2 years in a row before.
We were not disappointed . They just go above and beyond the call of duty 24 hours a day to make sure all their guests are happy. They are so personable that they make you feel like family. The fact that they have worked in the hospitality business throughout their life's is very apparent.
The work they have accomplished on the building in one year is very impressive.
The rooms are not fancy, but clean and quaint with an excellent view of the ocean. The beach is our favorite on the island. There is a beautiful reef there for snorkeling too if you have fins and are a decent swimmer. Recently they added kayaks for guest to use which is a very nice touch.
When we are on vacation we love to meet new people and get a true feeling of the culture. If you go here you will meet the nicest people ever, travelers and locals alike. Exuma in general is a great place for that, but we always meet the most interesting people at the Palms.this a great place to go to get a genuine Exuma experience. It is also a great value and the place is getting better and better.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a new hotel on Exuma, in the midst of a transition, striving to bring you casual but fine dining, ensuring you have fun, minimizing your impact on the environment and maybe teaching you something along the way. Our on-site marine biologist Nicole will be happy to assist you in your personal discovery of the local flora and fauna. She has also implemented many environmental reforms guiding the resort to a more sustainable and harmonious place without hindering quality nor comfort. Because her passion lies with the ocean, Nicole is very knowledgeable about the marine environment and is willing to help you organize excursions. You can experience the world famous swimming pigs, James Bond's Thunderball Grotto, the world's oldest marine conservation park or discover the life beneath the turquoise, clear water. We want you to have a nice, relaxing holiday, enjoying local customs and activities, but ultimately coming back to the comfort of your ocean view room with private balcony. Here you can enjoy coffee in the morning or Caribbean cocktails as the sun sets. We would love to share our passions and values with you, in a way that will only enhance your vacation, leaving your footprints in the pristine white sand, and not on the environment. We are not a chain hotel, therefore we offer the ultimate personalized experience for every guest, including young adventurers. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you, and your visit. ... more less
