Palm island honeymoon trip report

Jump to last reply

WOWOWWOWOWWOW just got back from Palm,,7 nights in #43 treehouse north side of the island,,,,is was great,,not only being my honeymoon but the island and my bride loved it as a suprise. We flew from Toronto to Barbados( short stop in Philly) and stayed in Rostrevor hotel in the St.Lawerence Gap in Barbados. Nice quite place, clean room, friendly staff (but then all Bayjans are very friendly) simple room,,no AC or TV, we stayed for 2 days here,,,,rented a car went to Bridgtown and then up to Harrisons cave,,nice but only have to do once.. Now on to the good stuff,,,you take a little puddle jumper (18seats) from Barbados to the Grenadines, if your lucky its direct to Union,,if not its a stop at one or as many as 3 other islands...Bequia,Canuia,and Mustique(spelling i know),,we recieved the full tour,which I enjoyed, then a quick 8 minute boat ride to Parridise..
Palm Island greets you at the dock with the Manager of the island and rum punches that punch,,they then give you a quick tour and take you to your room...deliver all your bags in a short while as you and the rum settle.
Since we were there during the off season, there were only 20 other guest sharing "Our" island, but the service was not cut back,,the food was great,,my wife is a very picky Greek,,and she didnt have one bad meal..and have as much as you want,,I have to confess that one lunch I ordered 3 plates of the smoked salmon because it was so good,,,the next day we had it delivered to a hammock on a private beach on the other side of the island,,,while there we witnessed a wedding which was beautiful and all were invited. I have to say that I'm normally a jeans and t-shirt type of guy but I had no problem putting on button down shirts and long shorts or pants for dinner,,,it was a nice touch..
This is truly a place where they cater to all your whims and if you dont like something they will do their best to change it...one night we were all wishing that they had Grey Goose vodka for our drinks,,,the next day theres a case for us to have,,
If theres anything to complain about its that it was in the 90s all week and im from Canada where i like my snow...but it wasnt that bad,
theres even a fresh water pool to go into after swimming in the ocean all day to quickly get that salt feeling off
I know I've rambled a bit so if theres any direct questions I will do my best to answer them
