“very friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

This hotel is lovely. Looking from outside it isn't anything amazing, but it is clean, safe and staff are very nice.
The location is a bonus, the bus stop is right outside, the beach is a few minutes walk away. Shops are close by as well as bars and places to eat. The Gap is a 10 min walk from hotel.
No fault on location, all maxi's and buses are $2 wherever you go, which is really good.
The rooms were ok, probably could do with up dating and a bit of paint.Our air conditioning unit didn't seem strong enough, so make sure and let staff know.But rooms are clean.
Nothing seemed too much trouble for the staff and they were willing to help as much as they could.
All in all a nice place, but if you want luxury this is not the place.
Would recommend to people on a budget and who like to get out and see the island.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back of the hotel seemed quiet

I have stayed at the Palm Gardens for years it is halfway between the airport and Bridgetown.
There are plenty or restaurants within walking distance as well as 2 grocery stores.
The beach is right across the street (one of the nicest beaches around)so is the bank for changing money.
There is a duty free store kitty corner to the hotel where you can buy decent quality cds, jewelry, alcohol , and other island goods nice clean north American type store.
The hotel itself is clean and the property is nice with a pool for the kids and adults and the bar is right at the pool.
The rooms are simple with a microwave and a fridge and a kettle and all the kitchen utensils.
If you are expecting Hilton rooms and style and highly appointed furniture and tables you will be disappointed but if you want value and a comfortable stay with a staff that is outstanding this Hotel is for you.
Each room also has a safe for your belongings a tv and a couch and on each patio on the lower level there is a small table and chairs to sit and have a coffee, tea or beverage.
The bus stops right outside the hotel to take you anywhere you want to go for roughly 1 dollar Canadian or U.S.
The staff will arrange any excursions you want to go on I would suggest El Tigre boat cruise where you swim with the turtles have a great lunch with unlimited beverages and snorkel at a ship wreck all for an affordable price.
We come back every year it is that kind of place.

Room Tip: The rooms on the lower level are great for young families as you have a walkout to the lawn and the...

The Palm Garden is a great place to stay for your vacation in Barbados. The best room is A3 excellent A/C unit. I enjoyed relaxing in the front office the two ladies working the front desk are great and very helpful. My girl Jack-Mac is also a wonderful individual to chat with. During any point in your stay you are having problems the property's manager and the front desk ladies will see your issue is resolved immediately. The location is nice only 5-8 min walk to Gap. It's also a on property bar & grill. The food is a great price and home cooked. Very nice place.

This place is nice and quiet. The room are decent & it's like a 3 min walk to the beach. Bus stop is right outside & there is plenty of supermarkets around. I enjoyed my stay here & enjoyed the nice hotel workers "Katrina,Natasha, & miss Jackie." They are the most sweetest people you will meet and make you feel welcome. Overall I liked it here and I would come back to this hotel again. Price is not bad for what you get! ILL MISS BARBADOS!

First off the most polite staff you would find anywhere, sorry I can't remember any names. Palm Garden is located in an ideal location you got beaches, bars, malls and restaurants around all in working distance. There is a pool (which I didn't use but others did) and a bar next to it there is a real cool Cuban bartender/cook he can whip up some nice flying fish. The place isn't no 5 star hotel but it has all you will need and is very clean. While I stayed there they had karaoke at the bar on Saturday, if you want to sleep the noise may get to you but if you came to have fun check it out.
The place was a bit hard to find because the sign is kinda small, only problem I had.

Good budget option on an expensive island. Rooms were large and comfortable although bathrooms were dated. On site restaurant only opens for lunch and dinner but is also a good value choice with lunch around £6 and dinner £10. The daily specials are the highlight of the menu. Free wifi was good as well and seemed to cover all areas of the hotel.

Location is good - 3 minutes to the beach and just under 10 minutes to St Lawrence Gap with its multitude of (fairly expensive) restaurants and bars.

Would have been 5/5 if the pool had not been out of operation for all 6 days we spent here.

The place is beautiful. You really live in a palm garden! Staff is polite and helpful. Although air conditioning in my room worked very badly. The guard in the hotel was very inpolite. When I was leaving, taxi did not come and he did not even bother to help me! (It was dark night, no staff, just guard). And the problem was that there is absolutely no place near the hotel where you can find breakfast.
