In a country where everything from bottled water to taxi rides is overpriced, the century-old Royal Palms is a refreshingly good value. Just blocks away from downtown Hamilton, the property is a postcolonial dream of coral-pink manor houses and white-roofed cottages set among manicured grounds. The 32 sunny rooms, decorated in English style with pastel-painted walls, flowery upholstery, and dark wood furniture, are elegant without being ostentatious. Start the day with breakfast on the patio surrounded by flowering tropical bushes; then wander through the grounds and test the romantic two-seater lounge swing, or refresh with a dip in the kidney-shaped pool. The friendly and helpful staff are managed by brother–sister team Susan Weare and Richard Smith; both are fonts of information about things to do and see on the island.
