We went back for a third visit because this has become one of our favorite places to be. It is a happy adventure every time we go - this time we hiked out to the tidal pools for the most breathtaking view - lots of sun, sand, and some snorkeling, too. We just love Palms...

A boutique hotel designed so that all rooms are on the water, we opened the door onto our private porch, one step down into the sand, right on the water. We badly needed a "stop"cation after the year from hell and this was perfect. We did nothing but read, snorkle (reef right out front) and eat. One of the staff...

We find that many guests who choose to get a rental car really appreciate us taking a half-hour or so at the beginning of their trip to go over a map of St. Croix pointing out interesting venues and answering questions they may have about travel here. We are happy to do that and we always have time. Sorry about...

We had a wonderful vacation at the Palms. The setting is a natural paradise with palms and sea grapes along side the sandy beach. All the rooms look over the ocean and have a private patio to enjoy the breezes. There is plenty of room to spread out on the beach so you never feel crowded. One of the features...

The on-line photos do not do justice for this hotel and grounds. The expansive layout of the property gave us plenty of elbow room, yet we always felt secure during our stay. The spacious beach was merely a few steps out our front door. The room was clean, quiet and modern and the bed was very comfortable . All of...

We have just finished a four night stay at the Palms and are planning a return already.

The staff were great and the food was excellent. We were treated more like extended family...

We were searching for the perfect place to have our wedding/commitment ceremony and The Palms at Pelican Cove exceeded our expectations in so many ways.

We stayed at this resort for my sisters wedding. We had never been to St. Croix, so we didn't know what to expect. The Palms at Pelican Cove turned out to be a fabulous little gem right on the ocean. It also had a very nice pool. It was quiet and peaceful, the staff was wonderful, and the restaurant was...

Just got back from an amazing trip to St. Croix. We picked the Palms because of the amazing reviews it received here, even though it was a bit more expensive than some of the other hotels we were looking at, and I'm glad we picked it. Everything we read on here is true. The hotel and bar/restaurant area are gorgeous...
