The Palms Oceanfront Suites
Ranked #24 of 53 Hotels in San Pedro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 January 2013

My wife and I recently left Colorado and 15 degree weather and 5 inches of snow for Ambergris Caye. We had never been to Belize and after reading many reviews on TA and checking availability during Christmas, we chose the Palms Oceanfront Suites.

We stayed 10 days in unit # 12 ground level. We were a little concerned about security and having a view being on the ground floor.
How lucky we were, the palms has 24 hour security and Toby, Santiago and Roberto were always around throughout the day and night keeping an eye on everything.
The view was outstanding, every morning we had coffee on the veranda.
We met a nice couple and two great families which we shared the beach, lounge chairs, and patios at times.We have since become great friends and look forward to traveling with them in the future.

Now, about the Palms, first off there is no Bar or Restaurant. Whoever is staying here is the only people you see, no outside traffic, no strangers.

The front desk of Ana, Lina and Melinda are there for your every need. They made dinner reservations, found times for Christmas mass, arranged tours and a great fishing trip for us.
They even let me use their internet to print boarding passes and most of all were all so friendly they made us feel right at home.
They also provide bikes for us to tool around the island, towels every day, laundry service which we used for a small fee and bottled water.

Roberto became a dear friend, he picked us up at the airport in a golf cart and was always there for us if we needed anything.
We eached packed carry-on so 1/2 way through the trip we had the Palms do some laundry. We dropped tees, shorts and other off at 9:00 and when we returned at 2:30 all was done and in our room. This for only $ 20.00 USA (how nice and convienent). When we had housekeeping, Neila came in and took care of everything. The rooms were spotless, the dishes and towels were clean and the floor was sandless.The room was very comfortable with 2 T.V's, nice appliances, great furnishings especially a comfortable bed and good water pressure.

We really had a tough time leaving. After getting to know all the staff, we found they were like one big family. They had all been working there for 8 years or longer.They really loved where they worked and it showed.

We were there ten days and already miss all of them. We hope we can get back next year and stay with our new Belizian family.

This is our fourth time staying at the Palms. These are small condos but located right by the airport and the little town. Easy enough to walk to the store, town, or Ramon's next door. This is not high end, but good enough, clean, AC works, hot water is hot so all is good. Great views and great stay make it very nice. Being a condo, you have a little kitchen which is cool for coffee or eating small meals. Ramons is right next door so you can set up a tab and use their facilities for food and drinks on the beach. Cannot go wrong on this one.

Room Tip: Top floor are better for the view. 32 and 33. 31 and 34 are nice but view is obstructed by the gia...

This was our 2nd consecutive trip to Ambergris Caye. Last year, we stayed at Ramon's but decided we needed more room since traveling with 2 teenagers

We stayed in room 14. Ground floor, 2 bedroom & 1.5 bath. It was perfect for us. We loved being able to open up sliding doors & stepping outside to the sunshine & ocean view.

The staff are wonderful & very helpful.
Perfect location to walk to everything.
We hope to return next year.

No resturant on site but it is located adjcent to Ramone's which provides diving and a very good resturant.Free bikes are available to Palms visitors.

We have stayed at the Palms many times and the condos are spacious and nicely appointed. The best feature is the location; close to town and on the beach.
A rather major mishap occured this past vacaion. We were burglarized while asleep. We left the sliding glass doors of our 2nd floor unit open during the night and presumably the thief came up a palm tree to the balcony. To the management staff's credit, they immediately increased security from 1 to 2 all night guards, and setting forth plans to increase the security cameras on the premises. While I do not like to sleep with the a/c running and prefer the night air, it would have been wise to keep all doors and windows closed and locked.

The staff was very helpful with all our needs. They booked our excursions for us and all we had to do was go. They attended to our every need. We had a group of 6 people and we rented a 2 bedroom and 2 bath condo with a beach view. The room had everything we needed for our stay. One of the couples stayed in the condo by the pool. Very relaxing and restaurants are within walking distance. We snorkeled, fished, booked excursions to the main land and just relaxed. I highly recommend "The Palms Oceanfront Suites".

Great staff from the desk (Melinda, Anna) to the housekeepers, maintenance and other staff (Diego, Santiago, Roberto, Toby). Whatever you want they make it happen. Made plane reservation, delivered beer to room, etc. etc. No complaints at all. The location is great, you can walk to multiple cafe's and clubs. Grocery store just down street. Also, there is a reasonable Restaurant at the large Resort (Ramon's) next door. Also, nice a beach at the resort next door as any where on the island.

Room Tip: We had two bedroom on ground floor which was great. Beach chairs just outside. Also, request hammock...
