Hi stonepro... We love The Palms. Close in yet quiet and very "neat and clean" apartments with nice kitchens and large verada's. No need to rent a cart unless you want to explore the island for a day. No restaurant/bar on premises (which keeps noise down) but within a few minutes walk there are many choices for food and beverage. The staff is very helpful and can arrange any activities for you. Hope you have a great trip!
