“The palms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

My wife and I have stayed at The Palms quite a few times.I just returned from a short father /daughter trip.The rooms are very large with large kitchens and living areas.The grounds staff are continually cleaning ,raking the sand and taking care of the beautiful vegetation.The airport is a 3 or 4 min. walk and town is a 5 min walk where you can dine at many restaurants or just eat good street food.There is a dive shop about about 200 feet away.We will be back!

Room Tip: Book early to get the ground floors and walk out your door to the beach!

We booked an oceanfront suite with ocean view. The room is the largest out of all the places we've stayed around the world!master bedroom with king bed, bathroom and a guest den/office, kitchen, living room and HUGE balcony right on the beach!
Hotel has a lovely pool and hardworking staffs that clean up your apt and backyard everyday!
In the center of everything and close to a supermarket.
Hotel staffs were also helping with puddle jumper booking, directions and free movie rentals(We have 2 TVs!!) cant recommend it more!
We could hear music from maybe hotels/ bar or apt above? However it wasn't too loud where we couldn't fall asleep!

Room Tip: First floor oceanfront! You won't regret it

The Palms Oceanfront is a nice set of condos you can rent, right on the beach and conveniently located to restaurants, bars, etc. in San Pedro. On the plus side - our condo was nicely furnished (the bed was very comfortable), roomy, with a beautiful view of the ocean. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The grounds were immaculate. The staff can help with arranging tours and activities as well. On the negative side - the pool is small and hidden away in the back (this might be a plus for some folks). The condo is located almost literally ON the airstrip so the noise of the planes may disturb some (again, this location may be what you want). There is almost no beachfront to speak of in front of the Palms - to find somewhere to lay out on the beach, you'll need to wander to someone else's property. And since it's a condo rather than a hotel, there is no bar, restaurant, or gym on site.

Still, I rate the Palms very highly and would recommend it to anyone looking for the condo experience in San Pedro.

Room Tip: The Executive Suite on the beach side, top floor is worth every penny. Spent a LOT more time on the...

The Palms is a great find. Each condo is individually owned, and run by a management company, so it's not about resort level amenities, but is it very nice, convenient, affordable and centrally located. We started our vacation in southern Belize taking advantage of the rainforest excursions, so our stay in Ambergris Caye was all about the water and the beach. The Palms fit perfectly in our plans. The adventures that the Palms management team booked for us included, snorkeling, SNUBA, golf cart rentals and a sunset sail, and all were very well done. We stayed in a first floor beach front condo which was perfect (#15). The patio was beautiful with a great hammock of which we took full advantage. We walked to great restaurants and the staff was very courteous and helpful. They have a nice pool that we utilized daily, but it would have been nice if the pool were bigger and had a view of the beach. Maybe for good reasons unbeknownst to me, they were a bit chintzy with regard to coffee, shampoo/conditioner and beach towels, but if that’s the biggest complaint one can mention, life at the Palms is very, very good. One great perk: they will stock your refridgerator with a case of the local beer of Belize, Belikin.

Room Tip: Ask for an oceanside, first floor room. This makes Access to the beach super easy.

Great. Would book again. Beautiful view, safe, clean, close to all beach and downtown areas by foot. COLD A/C!!
Only drawback is pool. Excellent pool but its inside and no beach view from the pool but its surrounded by palm trees, plants, birds so it works for pivacy and shade. Still you can lay on the beach in front of hotel in like 10 steps. Would be better if less than $200 per night

I found the Palms through Tripadvisor and chose it based on the reviews. I'm so happy I did. These are condo units so there are no bells and whistles that come with resorts. We stayed in a 2 brm (unit #14). It was great being on the ground floor and being able to walk directly from the unit to the beach. The grounds are impeccable - the staff is very attentive and very friendly. We loved having use of the bikes to run back and forth to the market. We also loved that it was walking distance to the airport and town. We never heard planes except when at the pool. Walking distance to town saved on the need for a golf cart and gave us a chance to get to know the shops and restaurants even more. Totally recommend Wild Mango and El Patio. We used Ramon's for some meals and all of our excursions. We used their beach chairs a couple of days but then were kicked off by a security guard even though we had asked permission on other days and had received beverage service telling them we were staying at the Palms - it was our last day so we didn't argue. Thats the only downside to the Palms - not much in the way of lounge chairs. The pool is small but nice. I would definitely go back if the opportunity arises. I wouldn't recommend for young kids - pool and entire building is a very quiet.

Room Tip: I loved the ground floor - walk directly onto beach and beach chairs tend to be yours. Two middle u...

Ok, so maybe it's not that close to the airport, but it is less than two blocks. It took all of four minutes to walk there. The hotel is very good. We split a two bedroom suite with another couple which made it affordable for us. The kitchen was great and fully supplied with all cooking hardwear and even a blender. The grounds are meticulously kept, with us getting multiple fresh tracks in the raked sand each day. The beach frontage is very nice and swimmable, and is shared with Ramone's. The washed-up sea grass is cleaned up early each morning. There is some snorkeling off the end of Ramone's pier, but you do need to stay within a rope line due to frequent tour boat traffic in the area. The location is great for being downtown and being able to walk (or ride a complimentary bike) to different restaurants, D &E's, Thursday night chicken drop, or Friday night bingo at the Rotary hall. For that same reason, the location may not be for you if you don't like the sound of turboprops in the morning, golf carts, or beach merchants. The pool is located on the opposite side of the building from the ocean, as such it did not see as much use as other hotel pools in the area.
