Just a couple of "blocks" down the beach from downtown San Pedro - this condominium was perfect for a relaxing stay. Easy to to walk up the beach to town for shopping, dining, night life but very quiet at night (the town is pretty noisy at night - loud music at night clubs etc). Appreciated the night security - they are strict about guests only after 9 pm which I really appreciated as a single female traveler. The pool is located in the interior courtyard with gardens surrounding, not on the ocean side, very private. Ramone's is right next door which has a nice gift shop with sundries. I stayed in #23 (2nd floor) - extremely clean, way more than what I needed (would easily accommodate 3 people or a family with small kids). Comfy king bed, clean, simple decor - full kitchen if you want to cook, large nice outdoor covered patio protected from wind, full ocean view, hammock and chairs outside. The condos are privately owned with on site management. I was impressed that the decor was consistent from one to another - no worries about seeing pictures of one and then the rest be something different. Their site has a nice little slideshow for each condo by #, so if you ask which one is reserved for you, you will be able to view its pictures specifically. Ladies at the front desk were extremely polite and helpful, Roberto was a very pleasant chap and happy to help you with luggage or directions. Good wi-fi, lots of cable channels, movies (if you want to watch tv), 5 gallons of water provided on first day. All are ocean front except the cabana by the pool. My stay here was safe, relaxing and perfect for me to be able to walk anywhere I wanted to go. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: I prefer not to be on the ground floor - I was on 2nd which was perfect and very quiet. There is mor...

We stayed at the Palms from May 12-18. We had a wonderful time. Very easy to communicate with staff prior to arrival. We took the Tropic Air plane from Belize City to San Pedro. My boy friend and I were picked up from the airport by Roberto and taken back to the Palms. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. The Palms is a quiet, beautiful resort nestled right in the heart of San Pedro. The location could not be better. We stayed in room #34 on the top floor. The condo was HUGE and beautiful. Full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, balcony and terrace. The balcony overlooked the ocean. It was huge with chairs and a hammock. The terrace off the master suite was HUGE and also had chairs. The terrace overlooked the pool and was open overhead (we were on the top floor) so it was nice for sun bathing. The staff made all of our excursion reservations as well as dinner reservations. The location was perfect for walking on the beach to different restaurants and bars. I would suggest using the beach as much as possible b/c the roads get busy with golf carts and bikes. We spent a day laying out on the end of the dock. It was quiet and wonderful for watching boats or looking for fish in the ocean. I also suggest snorkeling off the dock at Ramon's (next door). We saw tons and tons of fish over there and you are more than welcome to use their dock. We also got drinks at their bar (Palms does not have bar/restaurant--probably only downfall). We had a wonderful trip. I would highly recommend staying here and I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I loved our room-- #34. Great view, clean, and huge.

I can't imagine a better place to stay in Ambergris, especially for the price. It is right on the outskirts of the hustle and bustle of San Pedro but at the same time a quiet little sanctuary right on the beach. It is within 5/10 minute walk of everything you would want to do or any place you would want to eat at on the island. The suites are huge and are perfect for a couple, a group of friends or a family with kids. The staff was really helpful and the suites were spotless, well equipped and clean. When looking at hotels on Ambergris, I would highly recommend checking to see if the Palms has space.

Room Tip: I would suggest spending a little more and staying in one of the suites on the third floor...better...

We stayed in room #31, which is a 2 bedroom suite on the 3rd floor. The rating summarizes it all, but can't begin to describe this wonderful place. First of all, the staff was incredible. Melinda made our reservations and set us up for the week including domestic air travel in country from Hopkins through Belize City into San Pedro. Due to the efficiency of Tropic Air we arrived in San Pedro a tad earlier than expected. We never called. Melinda was in touch with arriving planes and when she learned we were inbound, she sent Roberto to fetch us right away in a golf cart. He got to us before we even got our bags off the plane. Roberto took us to the Palms and showed us to our room, brought up all our luggage and offered to bring up a case of Belikin beer too so we wouldn't have to cart it up ourselves later. What service. Roberto and his colleague Toby were available through the week to help us with anything we needed, always with a smile. We could take the free bikes for a ride around town or ask Melinda to arrange for a golf cart rental for further exploration. The Palms is a perfect location just south of town right on the beach. Close enough to visit the many shops, restaurants, markets and dive operations, but not too close to be noisy. The grounds at the Palms were immaculate too, with lush vegetation and plenty of chairs or lounges available around the pool or near the beach. Our room overlooked the reef and was very tastefully decorated with local carvings and art. Room #31 at the Palms had all the conveniences. The kitchen and living room formed a great room that looked out over the balcony to the sea. It had a big refrigerator, microwave, stove, oven, coffeemaker and even an ice tea maker. Each of the 2 bedrooms and the main living room had their own AC and flat screen TVs. Double doors lead out to the patio with a hammock, loungers and 2 chairs. For us it was like paradise for a week. We will stay there again. You will too. Enjoy.

My wife and I stayed at The Palms Oceanfront Suites during the week of April 12 - 19. What a wonderful place! The staff was friendly and helpful. While we enjoyed all of those we met, we especially enjoyed Melinda and Toby. They went out of their way to make our stay go smoothly. The unit we stayed in could not have been more comfortable. We looked right out on the ocean and the balcony was perfect for morning coffee. Melinda had great recommendations for eating and activities, and we took advantage of those ideas. San Pedro is a delightful town and the water activities are plentiful. We had several excellent snorkel trips and saw nurse sharks, sting rays, turtles and manatees. The coral was colorful and in good condition. Great time! We highly recommend The Palms!

Room Tip: We were in unit 22.

We stayed #32. Going back next year. Security guards are there all the time. The pool is small, but very clean, neat and beautifully landscaped. Front desk is professional and very helpful. Close to town. The "beach" is cleaned of sea grass continuously. The rooms are cool. The third floor requires 21 stairs to climb. Second bedroom was on an upper level. The only complaint was the TV sound speakers.

Great place to stay. Clean. Beautiful garden and pool area. Quiet. Our room had a nice view of the ocean. Very close to town. Staff was helpful when my husband cut his foot and required stitches. They drove us to and from a private clinic in the evening, when we really didn't know what to do or where to go.

Room Tip: Room 23 had an ocean view, a large room with a bed for two, a small single room, and a pull out bed...
