The beach spans the entire length of the property, enjoy a beautiful beach and sea view from just about anywhere on the resort grounds. Never more than a few feet away, there is plenty of room  to take a leisurely walk, go for a jog, build a sandcastle, or let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep as you relax in a lounge chair.

Enjoy complimentary tennis and snorkel gear. Snorkel the marine phenomenon known as long reef, located just a few hundred feet off of the half mile long beach or just float in St. Croix`s largest pool while sipping one of the signature cocktails.

Rooms feature air-conditioning, ceiling fans, cable TV, refrigerator, coffee maker, CD, private balcony or patio and incredible sea views.

The staff will know your name and help you relax in a secure and spontaneous environment.

Spend some time here talking to some of the most interesting people in the Caribbean. The heritage is of African traditions and the influence of seven settling nations, including French, Dutch, Spanish, British, Danish, and even the Knights of Malta, before becoming US citizens in 1917.
Dive the largest living reef of any Caribbean island or snorkel the famed underwater trail of Buck Island National Park. On land, The St. Croix Heritage Trail has been named one of the 50 National Millennium Legacy Trails in America and includes architectural ruins, preservation and restorations of the 18th and 19th in 1493. Ride horses on the beach or through the rain forest. Shop for stunning, original island art in the shops of Christiansted.

We are so fortunate to be able to return to the Palms every winter for a recharge of spirit and energy. There are really no words to describe the welcoming and accommodating owner, caring management and accommodating staff. They will go to all ends to make sure your vacation is all you dream it will be and more. There were many gestures and services that go above and beyond what one should expect from a resort.

I can't say enough great things about this hotel. I've been treated like family since I arrived. I was introduced to (Chuck) the owner as I was checking in and he gave me a personal tour of the hotel. I was informed of a night snorkel where Chuck personally takes out hotel guests. He invited us over us over to his place and we had a few drinks and I got to know a couple of the other people that were going out with us. They provide gear and all you have to bring is yourself. The tour was awesome... Read more

My wife and I stayed "The Palms" at Pelican Cove for five days and loved it. We found the rooms, restaurant, bar, pool, beach, grounds and location to be among the better which we have experienced in our Caribbean travels. Additionally, the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. In sum, we found this to be an outstanding bargain and would not hesitate to return in the future.

If the close view of the Caribbean Sea and being right on the water is of interest to you, stay here. Their closest competitors cannot offer or compare to this location. And, location IS a big deal. Some may be a little more plush, but we have stayed here 3 times, so it is obvious that we love being so close to the water. Stepping off our patio, you are in the sand and only a few yards away from the water. Due to the reef area along this location, beautiful waves are crashing in all the tim... Read more

My wife and I stayed here May 21 thru May 28, 2016. I selected the property based on Tripadvisor previews and was not disappointed. The resort is very nice and clean, is at least 40 years old and could use some minor updates. But with that said, I would certainly rebook at a later date. Their beach is nice! Some resorts in the area have a rocky cliff for a beach - The Palms have sand and a reef to snorkel. The restaurant and bar have spectacular views of the ocean. Christiansted is about ... Read more

The restaurant at the hotel is five star food at three star prices. All in all, one of our favorite places that we have ever stayed.

The best part of our stay was the guided snorkeling tour of the reef with hotel managing director Chuck. We were only expecting to be led to the nice part of the beach for snorkeling, but Chuck went above and beyond in finding some sea creatures for us to hold while he took pictures, finding us the perfectly fitting gear, and taking pictures underwater. As if that weren't nice enough, he presented us with a CD with all our pictures, and also added in some nicely labeled photos of other denizens ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff greeted us and treated us as friends and pretty much let us set our own course. If you just want to get away and and be comfortable in a low pressure but comfortable surroundings, this this the place. The owner Chuck even took me out snorkeling to the reef. All staff, especially Eileen at breakfast and grounds keepers Kendrick and his father Norbert where lovely as well. Will definitely be back. Thanks everyone for a wonderfully relaxing time

I loved this property upon entry. The owner, Chuck, shook hand firmly and welcomed us on premises, asking what he could do to make our stay better. The staff is great -- awesome start. The room is 15 steps from one of the most gorgeous beaches ever. Fabulous. Long Reef is practically snorkel-able from your patio, which is an irreplaceable asset. The views of Christiansted and the north shore of Croix are mesmerizing. The only issue we had with this hotel was the mosquito infestation. Maybe this ... Read more

The beach location is peaceful and well landscaped...once we found it tucked into a neighborhood- no GPS nor helpful directions. Night one presented a closed restaurant for a high school prom complete with revving engines and squealing tires. After that, the raggae music was the only loud distraction.

Stayed here for 4 nights during a recent fishing trip to St Croix. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach is a great place to hang out with lounge chairs provided. There is a pool on site, but I didn't utilize it. The room was fantastic, had a beachfront view. Lounge chairs are provided on the private balcony. Highly recommend the place, I would stay here again.

The staff is hit or miss with professionalism and courtesy. We were given incorrect info by several different people, and there were too many 'I don't knows' without follow up. The bar 'manager' kept dropping 'F' bombs, even with minors within earshot, the one night we chose to sit at the bar. Housekeeping came by daily, but if you didn't have the 'do not disturb' sign up, they literally knocked once, then entered before you could reach the door.The restaurant food was okay but overpriced.

Property and location is beautiful, but don't expect much from the hotel. The hotel room was nice, very basic with AC. Plan to eat outside the hotel, the food is not only terrible, they serve you on "island time". Everything takes forever. They do have snorkel gear and beach towels but cross your fingers to get one, During the four days we were there, the snorkel gear was not washed. Its a good value hotel if you are not interested in amenities.

I stayed at this hotel for conference, and I really loved my room. I had glass sliding doors that overlooked the beach too and walked right out to it. It was gorgeous. The people that worked at the hotel were always friendly and helpful, and made the stay enjoyable. The only downside was the food- not a lot of local food, breakfast's were not too great, and the bar menu was pretty basic. The salads were good though. I would return to this hotel, but definitely eat at other local restaurants.
