This was our first trip to the Caribbean and we are not usually beach people preferring to tour, however we are now converts! Southern Palms is not a 5 star hotel but what you get represents great value for money and a great holiday and not what I would call "tourist class". We had a Duplex/Suite on 2 levels which gave us loads of space to chill... yes the aircon worked extremely well which meant a good nights sleep. The room was always kept very clean and tidy and lots of fresh towels, the house keeping staff even washed up our tea mugs which made me feel a bit guilty! The kitchen was well appointed but who wants to cook with all the great Restaurants within 10mins walk !
Some days we just stayed on the beach which was very long and never crowded in fact sometimes we almost had it to ourselves... breaking the day for a slow lunch at the bar watching the waves. The staff were always friendly and took the time to have a chat. The pools were glorious and grounds always kept clean and tidy. 2 internet terminals to keep in touch, not for me thanks, but my daughter liked to email her friends.
A recommendation, do not go "all inclusive" and get trapped in a resort and eat at the same place every day, at Southern Palms if you eat in it is good value, the drinks are not expensive and good portions but then try the other great places to eat, I bet it still works out cheaper. You can buy a meal package to save a few quid but you have to eat in for 7 consecutive nights and really its good to vary it a bit, not that the food isn't good and menu varied.
At the end of some holidays you're about ready to come home... not this time, by now you will have guessed, we had a great stay at Southern Palms.
