Pure Bliss: A Review of The Palms Oceanfront Suites San Pedro

The Palms Oceanfront Suites is a stunningly beautiful property located on the island of Ambergris Caye in Belize. The resort is situated in the town of San Pedro on the beachfront, and its exquisite design is inspired by the beauty of the Caribbean Sea. From the moment you arrive at the resort, you are transported to a world of luxury and tranquility.

Spacious Accommodations at the Palms Oceanfront Suites

The Palms offers a variety of accommodations, from one to three-bedroom suites, each with its own private balcony or terrace overlooking the beach. The suites are spacious and beautifully decorated, featuring comfortable beds, luxurious linens, and wall-mounted air conditioning. The bathrooms are equally luxurious, with updated features and oversized showers. The suites are also equipped with a full kitchen, making it easy to prepare your meals if you prefer to dine in.

During our travels, we stayed in a two-bedroom suite with my parents and had plenty of space to spread out, hang out, and hide out, when necessary. We actually stayed in two different two-bedroom suites, once at the front end and once at the back end of our trip, giving us a chance to stay on both the second floor and the first floor. Both suites offered patios overlooking the beach, but there was definitely more privacy with the second floor patio since it was actually a balcony. The first floor, although offering less privacy, gave easier access to the luxury loungers in the private beach area. In the end, I had zero complaints about either room!

Tranquil Swimming Pool at the Palms Oceanfront Suites

Of course, the property also includes an serene swimming pool surrounded by comfortable loungers, palm trees, and other tropical plants. The Palms Oceanfront Suites also offers a private space to lounge on the beach, which is separated from the water by a short fence, making it easy to spend the day soaking up the sun, reading a book, or just enjoying the stunning views. With sounds of island birds chirping outside and the smell of salty Caribbean air, The Palms provides a perfect atmosphere for relaxation.

I actually have memories of swimming in the pool at The Palms as a six-year-old when we visited as a family not long after they were built by my Aunt and Uncle. They both lived at The Palms Oceanfront Suites with my three cousins during its earliest days, making our visit there extra special. The pool is just large enough for the property so guests aren’t crowded, but small enough to make it an intimate space where you might even make a new friend as you cool off in the water.

Exceptional Service and Staff at the Palms Oceanfront Suites

One of the standout features of The Palms Oceanfront Suites is the helpful staff. They are knowledgable about all the local tour options and are on standby to help guests book a day of snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving, or cave tubing on the main land. They are also quick to help with golf cart rentals by arranging for the companies to bring the carts to their location for guests’ convenience. The staff at The Palms Resort are friendly, welcoming, and always happy to assist with any request. The level of service is exceptional, and the staff go out of their way to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable.

While we did not utilize their services to book any tours (we were a bit busy since the reason for our travels was my sister’s wedding), they were incredibly helpful with carrying our luggage, refilling our drinking water, providing room service when requested, and arranging for our golf cart to be picked up from their property for return. I also witnessed them very kindly and patiently asking guests not to drink from glass containers by the pool. Somehow, they were able to enforce the rules while preserving the tranquility of the space.

Final Thoughts on The Palms Oceanfront Suites

Overall, The Palms Oceanfront Suites is a luxurious and beautiful property that offers exceptional service, stunning views, and all the amenities you could need for your Caribbean vacation. If you are looking for a luxurious and relaxing getaway in Belize, The Palms is an excellent choice.
