Wonderful hotel, beachfront hotel with lots of beachfront seating two pools and a bar too. This October we spent lots of our time catching baby turtles attracted by the hotel lights maybe not a good point. The hotel restaurant was great and the rum punch party on Monday evenings are fab too. Great hotel and staff.

Southern Palms, right on the beach 1000ft frontage, step from terrace straight on to beach then 30yd walk to a warm, warm sea. We had intended to do so much but the place was so laid back that we just lazed around, wonderful.

We went with another family, for kids in all. Everyone was pleased with their order, ranging from fish sandwiches to pasta Bolognese. Drinks are two for one between six and seven PM. It's a good restaurant and in an exceptional location. Music starts at eight many nights.

My friend and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Barbados. We stayed at the Southern Palms, a beautiful Hotel set at the quieter end of The Gap, which ensured our sleep was not disturbed! The Hotel has prime position on Dover Beach, and it was lovely to have so much space on the beach itself and not...

Just returned from a wonderful Christmas week at Southern Palms. The only thing that beats the beautiful beach and location are the staff. Just the best. Room was spotless, cool and comfortable. Not sleek and modern but perfect for us. Food was very good, Christmas dinner quite impressive. Would go back in a heartbeat!

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...
