Stayed at Southern Palms for 9 days with three other families. Exceptionally clean rooms and facilities, friendly and helpful staff, good food, empty beach, and quiet. Perfect getaway. We will definitely return.

We had a wonderful stay at Southern Palms, perfect location, one of the best beaches in Barbados, lovely wide stretch of white soft sand, palm trees, lots of space (compared with others where beach chairs are all lined up and packed like sardines, my idea of hell!) and we even got to swim with turtles right there, magical! The hotel...

The hotel is in the best location. We arrived at 1:00am into Barbados. We jumped into a cab to the hotel which took about 15-20 minutes ($20). We arrived at the hotel dropped our luggage off and headed out to the bar which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is in such a quiet location...

We chose Southern Palms having been to the Sandals Resort last year, as we wanted somewhere where the service was more relaxed and less formal. We certainly got that side of things right - the staff and service were first class. One thing we'd failed to consider was that it seemed to be US school holidays, so it wasn't as...

Just returned after spending 10 days at this lovely beach resort. Our first visit to Barbados and we were not disappointed as the location of this hotel is perfect with wonderful white beaches on its doorstep. Our room whilst not luxurious was clean and comfortable. It would benefit from an update especially the bathroom which looked tired. Our room was...

We returned to Southern Palms for the fourth time but after a gap of 7 years we were pleasantly surprised that quite a few people recognised us - it made us feel like we were home! After a long, hassle free day travelling with Virgin Atlantic we were welcomed at reception and told we'd been upgraded to a sea view...

Not a Sandals and the better for it in this traveller's opinion. A lot of appeal and the beach is stunning too. Definitely for the person who prefers a subtler experience. We found it becos' wanted to play tennis as well as have an ocean view. Lovely.....

“We were in a larger room on the east side of the restaurant which was excellent. We also heard good reports about the classic rooms on the west side. We had a sea view and a balcony which we upgraded to and which was well worth the cost.”
