Southern Palms Beach Club

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Just returned from two weeks at Southern Palms .Had a fantastic stay. One of the best things about this hotel is the location on the beautiful Dover beach. It is literally on the beach. You can sunbathe, swim and spot turtles on your doorstep. Another one of the best things are the wonderful friendly staff. Everyone is friendly, helpful and professional. The team of ladies (and a couple of gentleman) who work in the bar and restaurant are among the nicest I have ever come across. Always time for a chat while providing great service . To many to name but a special mention to Maureen, Jaqueline ,Cherie-Ann, Betty ,Rachel , Michelle and Kerry-Ann (the dancing waitress). The hotel is spotlessly clean and well maintained .We had a sea view room and it was large and airy .Good linen and towels, Equipped with kettle, fridge, iron/board and hairdryer. Bed was very comfortable. Room/bathroom could benefit from a being repainted to brighten it up.Large balconey with great views of beach and sunsets. Food in the bar and restaurant is excellent, due to an offer when we booked with Tui we were full board and we were not disappointed with any of the meals.Drinks are average price for a hotel and on par with any city in the uk. The choice of cocktails and wine could be upgraded. There is entertainment 3 nights and sunday lunchtime, it is very popular with tourists and locals so hotel is very busy and lively .( worth booking a table even if you are staying at hotel) This is a charming,comfortable well located hotel with fantastic staff, comfortable clean rooms, great food and a relaxing atmosphere. If you want all inclusive drinks ,lots of bars/restaurants ,posh rooms and are not worried about meeting locals and staff then this is not the hotel for you but if you want a relaxing holiday on the beach ,enjoy great food in a super friendly atmosphere and want a comfortable nights sleep with the sound of the ocean in yours ears then Southern Palms is for you

Had a lovely stay in this hotel, was a bit worried after reading the reviews but was no need. Location was fantastic and had a room at the front but didn’t get bothered by any late night noise. Room was nice and very big, comfy bed, only negative is bathroom a bit tired/dated not a fan of shower curtains, but plenty of hot water and towels which is more important. Had room only but food was very good when we ate there and reasonably priced. Everyone friendly.

We recently returned from a wonderful stay at Southern Palms. The hotel is in a good location right on the beautiful white sand beach, with fabulous sunsets in abundance. Our 3rd floor room gave us a view of the sea which was picture perfect. The room was very comfortable with good air con a fridge and a sink and a huge bed. It was very clean. The food in the hotel was excellent and plenty of choice the drinks were average and a little expensive. On the nights when there is entertainment it can be crowded and service is slow. Overall we had a very pleasant stay.

Had another great stay. Have already booked for next January. Staff are wonderful specially Jennie, Edrick, Richard and Caroline. The rooms are cleaned to a high standard everyday, the beach is wonderful. Defiantly a perfect place to stay when visiting Barbados.

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary here. Wonderful location & very friendly & very helpful staff. Rodney was our favourite though - a wonderful man who was so friendly. I cried when we had to say goodbye to him and Su-Su the cat!!!!! Will definitely be returning next year and wouldn’t stay anywhere else in “The Gap”. Thankyou to all for making wonderful memories for us.

We were only here one night and had been booked as room only by our travel agent. Would recommend trying to get all inclusive as both our meals (evening bar snack and the buffet breakfast) worked out at £45 per person, which certainly seemed expensive for the breakfast. The location was lovely; beach front and plenty of beach to walk along. The rooms were clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable. As others have also noted, the property presented as being a little tired but the staff and feel did make up for it.

This hotel is perfectly situated on the beach, away from the busier and possibly noisier part of the gap but only a pleasant 10 minute stroll away. We ate here a couple of times and the food was fine. Most of the staff are very friendly and attentive, though some of the younger ones seem a little disinterested. The managers weekly punch party was excellent and very sociable. There are no issues with getting sun beds or shade but there was a shortage of the mattresses for the sun beds. Sandy who works on the beach is very nice. Our room was clean, the bed large and very comfortable and lots of clean towels and bedding put in on a daily basis. Excellent maid service. The only reason I didn’t give this place a 5 is that it does need a bit of a facelift, I wouldn’t hesitate to come back here again. We saw quite a bit of the island and believe it to be the nicest part to stay. Lovely hotel and we really enjoyed our holiday.

Third visit to Barbados but first time at hotel. Excellent location with a long expanse of beach. 2 swimming pools. Rooms were basic but comfortable and fridge and kettle provided. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar prices were reasonable and restaurant/bar menus OK. 10% service charge automatically added to bill, Room safe was 3BBD/day and if you wanted a beach umbrella this was an additional 20 BBD/day. If a late check-out is not available a complimentary 30 minute use of a vacant room is provided. There are plenty of restaurant and cafes within easy walking distance and 2 convenience stores nearby. ATM and bank a short walk (100 metres). Overall a very pleasant stay and would consider again.

Fantastic hotel! Prefect location! We were only staying 1 night in Barbados before heading of to St. Lucia the following morning. So this hotel was perfect for our short stay. Located on the beach front with gorgeous views of the sun and thand sound of the sea. Absolutely amazing. We were welcomed by a lovely lady who completed check-in very quickly & efficiently. The room was beautiful, a welcome drink was there to help kick start the vacation. A very nice touch. The balcony was ideal too. As you come up the stairs you had your own private little area with a mini bar before you open the door to the fantastic cosy room. We were only there for the night but I wish I’d booked for us to stay longer. I would most definitely stay here again. We dine here so can not comment on the dining facilities. But I’m sure the food would have been delicious.

Had a great vacation at this hotel. Beachfront property, fantastic beach ! Rooms are clean and suitable. Great location for walking around or dining out. Located right in the St.Lawrence Gap. Hotel offers great food as well.
