I recently stayed at The Palms for a belated birthday trip and had an overall amazing time. Starting off with the rooms- my boyfriend and I stayed in a junior suite, and considering it is The Palms' smallest and least expensive room, we were pleasantly surprised at the space. The bathroom is separated by a hallway from the bedroom, so it really opened up the space and made it seem huge. The king bed was plush and comfortable, and housekeeping always left the room in pristine condition each day. My one issue with our room was that the shower didn't get quite hot enough (was almost always lukewarm). This may have just been an issue with our specific room, but it didn't bother us enough to make a fuss. The resort itself is spacious and beautiful. We loved how the rooms were all separated into blocks. It minimized the noise and gave off a more resort feel. My boyfriend and I spent most of our time at the pool, which was always enjoyable. The water was just comfortably warm, and it had an expansive wrap around, so you never felt like you were too close to anyone. We were able to enjoy lunch service right from our chairs, which was great for whenever we didn't feel like getting up to go to the poolside restaurant. The only minor annoyance at the pool was how guests were able to reserve chairs. Many guests would put down towels earlier in the morning to reserve their spots and then not return until hours later or at all. This made it difficult to find open spots, as we didn't want to take anyone's seats. When we were able to find chairs, the pool staff was always extremely helpful with setting up umbrellas and laying out our towels for us. Lastly, the food at The Palms was consistent and tasty. Breakfast was served in a buffet style every morning in addition to an omelet bar. The choices were the same every morning which got kind of repetitive, but the food was always fresh and enjoyable. We mostly ate lunch at the poolside restaurant, and they provided enough options that we could try different things every day. For dinner, we ate either at Parallel 23 or L'Attitude Bar every night. We LOVED sitting at the bar- it was probably the highlight of our evenings. Dwane, who was our bartender every night, was very knowledgeable on his alcohol recommendations and was excellent conversation. The food at the bar was great when we were craving something simple, and Parallel 23 was great when we wanted something more upscale. Our stay at The Palms was amazing, but I am taking away one star for an experience we had at the front desk on our last night. My boyfriend and I approached the woman and gentleman sitting at the front desk asking if they would mind taking a photo of us, and we were met with an irritated look and an eye roll. We would've just forgotten about this, but after dinner that night, we had another similar experience back at the front desk. We again approached the woman at the front desk asking to reserve a taxi to take us to the airport the nex

Wymara Francesca Ruth Carlande If you’re second-guessing on booking this place, don’t! I’m telling you now, you clearly get your money’s worth here. The place is beautiful, the rooms are beautiful, the views are beautiful, the bed is so comfortable, the shower pressure is amazing, the service is amazing, there’s just so many amazing things I don’t even know where to start. So far I’ve enjoyed all of the food. When I got here my room was not ready so I went to Zest and I had the red snapper. 10 out of 10 recommend! My waitress was Carlande, and I saw her practically every day that I went to eat. She was amazing and so sweet! Always checked in and asked how I was doing, just made me really comfortable. I came on this trip alone so everyone that I interacted with was amazing. All of their staff made me feel welcome; however, my top three would definitely be Carlande, Francesca, and Ruth. Francesca took these amazing pictures of me and got different angles and multiple pictures! People don’t always do that and when I tell you she took some FIRE pictures, I cannot wait to post them. Ruth, I would literally say hi to Ruth every time I saw her because she just had this loving spirit to her. She was so helpful and always kind. Any time I would talk to these ladies it was a great conversation and they were very sweet. Each of them made my experience here so comfortable. This was my first solo trip out of the country and first time to the island. I really appreciate each of these ladies and how comfortable they made me feel, I appreciate all of the staff and the entire resort like I absolutely will come here again. Oh, also the breakfast in the morning, there’s definitely good food for you eat. My favorite thing was the omelette station and the orange juice. The barbecue that they have on the beach on Saturday night, the brisket is so good! I also had steak at indigo and that was great as well. You can’t go wrong here. I’m not much of a drinker but they definitely seem to look out on the liquor when they make drinks so if you’re a big fan of alcohol you’ll definitely enjoy your drinks here.
