TripAdvisor Rating


One of the smaller hotels on the beach, the Palms is known for its service and the tasty food served at its restaurant. All rooms come with refrigerators, microwaves, and big walk-in showers. The real lure, however, is the beach, located right outside your door.

Motel with Roaches

by nick6507897

First of all this place is a MOTEL not a resort. Absolutely NO BEACHFRONT VIEWS. Nickel and dime charges, extra $50 dollars if you book with an online booking service ("resort fee") which they only let you know upon check in. Overall terrible experience.

Walked into the room and noticed scurrying motion under the kitchen counter. Opened a drawer and saw multiple cockroaches scurry behind the counter. Grossed out we left as soon as we came.

Do yourself a favor and don't stay here. If it is the cheapest option (~$100) and your on a budget would be the only consideration.

Went to the Isla Grande instead, that was an actual resort with no hidden fees. Great experience at the Isla Grande.

What a disappointment. Construction was taking place above us at 8am on July 4. When we called to complain, we were told no construction was taking place. Check out was 11 am and we called to request an extension. Front staff and manager were rude and did not allow a delayed check out. Not to mention, the room was poor at best. We will NEVER stay there again.
