This was our first stay at the Southern Palms. In our opinion the best location in the Gap. We stayed in a garden view room and still had a great view of the ocean from our balcony. The room was clean, the shower worked great and the bed was extremely comfortable. Had a little problem with the A/C, but this...

Booked a week here through our local travel agent. Not disappointed. The staff on site are really friendly and helpful, and nothing seems to much trouble. Good choice at breakfast time, especially in the outdoor splendour of viewing the ocean. also great venue for eating evening meals, either in the restaurant or at the bar, or sitting around the pool...

We initially booked this hotel as we had a great deal using up our Avios points. There had been some mixed reviews on TA when we booked but we thought as long as it was clean we’d be happy. But wow – what a great hotel, I can’t praise it highly enough. We had an ocean-view room with a balcony...
