I've just spend 9 days at Southern Palms Beach Resort and the first impression was very nice. We were welcomed with a welcome drink while we signed in. We asked about upgrading to all-inclusive and had to pay USD 25 a day (they said it was a bargain and we liked the idea so we went with it.) But -...

We stayed there for a week. It's a lovely hotel with nice and clean rooms. The food is very good - you can choose between a few restaurants in the hotel. The pool area is great. The beach is lovely, white sand and warm sea.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This dramatic hotel with its fantastic pools and beautiful beach is the perfect spot to relax after a safari… or simply visit to relax! The warm and very African feel of the hotel with comfortable rooms, well appointed bathrooms and selection of restaurants offers guests plenty of places to lounge in the sun and almost as many shady spots to enjoy a bit of a breeze and a good book. All rooms have quiet, split unit air conditioners, televisions, mini fridges and coffee and tea making facilities. There is a safe (chargeable) in each room and a business center located in the main building with internet or wifi access in public areas. The drama of the huge, traditional makuti (thatched) roof in the main restaurant offers the Chef a terrific showcase for a varied selection of local and international dishes on the buffet or you could indulge at one of the a la carte restaurants (chargeable) for a special occasion or just a quiet evening for two. ... more   less
