Southern Palms Beach Club

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

The Southern Palms Beach Club and Hotel is spread out along 1,000 ft of oceanfront at St Lawrence Gap, so it has the best of both worlds. There are spacious grounds in which to relax and unwind during the day and then lively restaurants, shops and bars just a 5-minute walk away for evening entertainment! You can look out over the Caribbean Sea as you dine in the Garden Terrace restaurant and, on Sundays, people come from all over the island to enjoy the wonderful Sunday buffet lunch — accompanied by live music.

The location of this hotel is perfect, long white sand beach, plenty of bars and restaurants nearby but the rooms are quiet.We had breakfast every day and several lunches and dinners in the restaurant all were delicious and tasty, I especially liked the coleslaw and had extra portions.We were lucky enough to see turtles hatching on the beach one day (125 we were told) which were collected by the authority to be looked after and then put in the sea.You didn’t have to go far into the sea to watch the turtles they could also be seen from the beach. Staff at the Southern Palms work really hard to make your stay memorable and enjoyable, special mention to Ken who kept us cool with jugs of ice water on the beach and Chanel who served rum punches during a very happy happy hour. We will definitely return to the Southern Palms, we really enjoyed our stay. Read less

I didn’t ever think I would go somewhere and want to return time after time but this place is that place! The staff all go above and beyond.

I didn’t ever think I would go somewhere and want to return time after time but this place is that place! The staff all go above and beyond. From the chambermaids, waiting staff, receptionists, porter, assistant manager right through to the maintenance guys and the pool (and everything beach related) guy. I don’t think I’ve ever stayed anywhere quite like it for positive, customer focused attitude. The building is a pink colonial style sprawling estate but it feels like an intimate boutique hotel. There are two pools, a crazy golf course, outdoor gym equipment and this is all set on the beach. The menu is varied and although we only had dinner here, there was plenty of choice for us to have something different every time and as I don’t eat seafood or fish that’s quite a feat! The rooms are in typical Caribbean style and very quaint and quirky. As corporate hotels with no personality are in a past life for me it suits me well. We had a slight problem that needed maintenance and rang reception. There was someone at the door within five minutes and the issue was resolved later that day. We were offered another room but as we had an amazing ocean view we were happy to wait until it was fixed. As soon as it was done the chambermaid came in to thoroughly clean and sanitise. There is a steel band playing twice a week who are awesome! Read less

She was always attentive, professional and greeted us with a smile and good humour. I mistakenly called Leah , Doreen the first night I met her and then she joked with me that she would call me dorothy . We had a really great joke about it every time we met. Leah was a fantastic person to meet and I really hope that the hotel values this member of staff. Thank you Leah for your laughter, dry sense of humour and your service . Hope to see you in 2022! Keep safe lovely x Read less

We just had the best time at the southern palms beach club! Our room was lovely and the beach is absolutely stunning and we never got bored of watching the turtles play in the waves. The staff were absolutely lovely and we especially wanted to thank Steven on reception who went above and beyond to rectify a problem with our PCR tests - an issue which was the lab’s fault not ours or the hotels. Linda was so cheerful and wonderful serving breakfast in the mornings and always made us smile! We stayed half board and the food and drinks were delicious, we can’t wait to come back again one day!
