“Beautiful Accommodations”
Reviewed 20 May 2010

You couldn't ask for a nicer condo complex! We checked in and they were getting ready to check us into a 1 bedrooms suite on the lower level. Since I had a baby, I had specifically requested and paid a higher fee for a 1 bedroom, second story condo. When I brought the mistake to the attention of the person who was checking us in, they moved us upstairs and upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite with no additional fee.

This is in such a great location being right next to a full resort is nice because you have easy access to their bar and restaurant which is really convenient. There's really no swimming beach to speak of due to the mangrove weeds in the water but it's still a nice spot to lounge on the sand or sit in the water to cool off.

The only negative I can speak of is the air conditioning units went out on our first day there (out of 6) which made the stay a bit unconfortable. We let the hotel know on our 5th day only to find out that they could not fix the problem and we were left our last 2 days without air conditioning. When we checked in they didn't really provide any how-to on using the air-conditioning units which would have been nice. We went 4 days thinking the second unit was broken when it was just a complex unit and we just needed a little instruction on one of the units; that was our fault for waiting for so long before calling somebody in to address it.

The other thing that needs a bit of improvement is the cleaning of the shower. I have a thing about mold in the shower; although glass-blocks are nice, they need constant cleaning which the condo's didn't provide so there was mold in the grout which really freaks me out when I'm showering.

Great pool area offers plenty of privacy and is beautiful.

Over all we had a nice experience and would like to visit again.

This was a fabulous place to stay! It is affordable, yet you are spoiled with the comforts of home. The decor in our unit was so impressive! It was conveniently located to San Pedro as well as feeling like you had your own piece of the beach.

We loved visiting with the locals and everyone was so friendly and helpful. We will be back!

We stayed in the poolside Casita and couldn't have been more pleased. Although it doesn't have an ocean view, that wasn't a big deal for us. We were on the beach in less than a minute. The Palms' location is fantastic, with all of San Pedro's restaurants and bars within a short walk. We were in San Pedro for the diving and dove through Ramon's dive center, which is right next door. We made all the arrangements through the Palms and everything went off without a hitch.

I woud certainly recommend the Palms to anyone staying on Ambergris Caye. We stayed in the Casita (the one free-standing unit next to the pool). Although there was no ocean view, we certainly didn't miss it. It felt as though we had our own private house and pool.

Another nice amenity was the utility sink located outside which made it very convenient to rinse out our scuba gear. Nice touch, I wish every hotel offered this feature.

If you're interested in diving, the dive shop in right next door at Ramon's. be sure you ask for Turiano as your dive master. We went on 3 dive trips with him and he showed us some amazing sights.

Restaurants: Went to Pineapple Grill (at Ramon's), Lazy Croc BBQ (didn't see any crocs, sorry), Blue Water Grill, Pinocchio's, Red Ginger (great food, odd atmosphere), Hidden Treasure and Sunset Grill (fed the fish and one ate my ring!). All were really good.

Love this place! Would certainly go back.

I would come back and stay here again. Small building with many apartment suites with kitchen and a small pool; staff pleasant and laid back. Oceanfront location was perfect and convenient to Ramon's dock and town. View was breathtaking!

My wife and I stayed at The Palms for our honeymoon and had a great time. It is walking distance from the Tropic Air airport (don't need to rent a golf cart to get there). The view doesn't get any better than this. We had a second floor suite, where the balcony looked straight out to the beach. We took pictures of the sunrise from our balcony and on some days just sat on the balcony and relaxed. The staff was friendly and helpful and set us up with all the trips. There was a pool at the resort, though I'm not sure why anyone would swim in a pool when the clear ocean water is a few steps away.

The service at the Palms is outstanding. Everyone was so friendly and went out of their way to make things pleasant and make you feel like you are at home.
Our room was wonderful. Very clean and the perfect location for me and my fiance. I could lay in the sun and he could be in the shade at times. I would definitely want to stay in room 12 on a return vacation!
The location is perfect. It is right in the middle of San Pedro. You could really walk just about anywhere...and I love that when you get off the plane at Tropic Air you are right down the street, you really wouldn't even need a golf cart!
The best part to me is the location of the Palms and the room location we had. I can honestly say that there isn't anything about the Palms I didn't like....It is all around a wonderful place to vacation!!
