This hotel is lovely. It's low-rise and clings to the Dover Beach-front with a range of gently interconnecting sections, gardens, games areas, a couple of uncrowded pools and lots and lots of beach space right on your doorstep. It's clearly a bit old-fashioned and some aspects (e.g. bathrooms) would benefit from upgrading to match the hefty room price, but you...

Life is what you make it - Sandy For people like us living in the north, Barbados is a gem-spot for a winter hideaway. Its wonderful climate, friendly people and the clear blue ocean provide wellness for both body and soul. We ( Xukun Ji, Elisabeth Ehmer and Benny Andersen) had 2 weeks’ holiday in the Southern Palms Beach hotel...

Superb position on the most beautiful beach. Sun beds available on the beach. Sea was a bit too rough for me to swim in ( bad knees) but you could see the turtles just 10'yards offshore swimming in the sea. Low rise hotel in separate sections which makes it appear small and friendly. Two swimming pools which were never crowded....

THE EXPERIENCE was very very good, Staff were very attentive and very friendly. The room was clean. We were on the almost all inclusive plan, and the food was well prepared and presented, and the menu contained many varied items. My partner had certain dietary issues and the staff did their best at looking after these.

My husband & myself have just returned from our first visit to Barbados. And if ever there was a place to prove that you would go on holiday & completely chill out then Barbados is the place to go. The hotel is just wonderful, a family run hotel with years of experience who centre on giving you the personal touch....
