Royal Palm Resort (y)”
Unfortunately it stormed for the majority of our stay and the power went out in Palm Beach just as we arrived at the hotel so the lifts weren't working for quite some time, but still we had an excellent vacation. The facilities in this resort are amazing - large heated pool with a waterfall, spa and slide for the kids, several BBQ areas and BBQs, sauna, gym, games room, 2 tennis courts (one full and one half size), mini putt putt and checkerboard. Beautiful well maintained gardens throughout attracting abundant birdlife. Beach access with no roads to cross. Just walk out of the resort and the beach is there. Exercise equipment just outside of the resort grounds. Close to shops, restaurants, cafes, parks, public transport, etc. In all just a great place to stay :)
Great location, good security, well maintained and managed grounds and facilities. We bookrd a superior apartment because we were happy to pay a little more for an upgraded apartment with nicer furnishings. We had to ask reception to make sure we were given a superior apartment because the furniture was old and dingy and apartment just a bit dingy. The kitchen and bathrooms haf been renovated but some time ago by the looks of it, but that qualifies it as a superior apartment. Just luck of the draw if you get a nicely renovated one as they are all privately owned. Also a few maintainance issues like blown light bulbs and batteries desintergrating in the t.v remote. Tha pool is one of the best we've come across at a unit complex. We would stay again but make sure of a nicer apartment.
We managed to book this apartment as our last stop while traveling/driving from Cairns to Brisbane/Gold Coast. This is the best price we pay for four of us. Only AUD90 per night for four of us for this fully equipped apartment with seaview from both rooms and living room. Even cheaper than dorm bed we paid for earlier. And this is one of the best accomodation we had in this trip, even better than Hotel Cairns we stayed in the first week of our trip. This place is great if you are driving as the locatio is not exactly at the heart of surfer paradise or main beaches or shopping malls. We spent most of our time in the apartment, enjoying our own cook food, wine, beers, and playing card game. Felt like at home.
We have used this accommodation some times now and still love it! Still there are some things starting to look old needing some up keep. The staff has unfortunately become less friendly, however they did promptly give us another room because the one we were first given was stuck in the 80's. The other downer was the tight lock-down of the external rear area near the pool. Don't bother going for a beach walk before 6:30am (best part of the day) or after 9:30pm unless you head out the front and track around the block. This lock-down system took the freedom out of this holiday trip. In saying all that I would recommend this place, and hope to return myself. Its beautiful location and well keep pool are its greatest drawer cards. Great for young families.
Cheap and cheerful”
We had a great stay - amazing pool, total beachfront, apartment was older but very clean and well appointed. Will be staying again, such a bargain.
Great location and great pool. ”
The unit was a little dated but was very clean and had fantastic views. The pool and spa were great and I loved that we could walk to the surf and to the calm water.
'C' Room - Views and Quiet!”
I stayed in a 2 bdrm deluxe suite with 2 my kids (8, 14). I was thrilled to get an air con room - 16C which overlooks the pool area. It was quiet (no traffic noise), fab views, with air con a bonus. My only gripe was that the kitchen cupboards were pretty grimy. Luckily we ate out a lot! Reception staff were helpful with good local knowledge. Tip: if you're checking in out of office hours, make sure you ring ahead of your arrival to find out the process. This resort is a bit off the beaten track. We were told to use public tspt rather than hire a car - maybe standard Commonwealth Games advice? - but I wish we'd hired a car. Theme parks were a loooong way to go on public tspt with kids. On the upside, you're close to the airport here :)
Beautiful views, relaxing holiday!”
Spoilt for choice each morning looking out from the balcony up on the 23rd floor.. wonderful pool and surrounds .. or through the gate to the patrolled beach. No need to hire a car.. supermarket, restaurants, a stones throw away. We caught the bus 20 mins to and from the airport. They even run from right outside the resort 1.5hr journey all the way to the theme parks! Such a relaxing stay. Would definitely recommend!
Booked a 2 bed Superior ended up with a dirty 2 bed delux. Not impressed. ”
Booked a 2 bed superior for xmas atleast 7 months in advance. To b hit with a 2 bed delux , dirty and needed modernizing. Been coming here the past few years without an issue. Gutted this year. Staff were great though.
Terrific location. Beach access. Apartment 11a has views of GC, ocean, Currumbin Estuary and the hills with Mt Warning! Bright & airy 2 bedroom apartment with shutters. No air con in bedrooms but great breezes. Windows rattle a bit in the wind and no fly screens so a few bugs & cicadas joined us. Great facilities with large pool. Really beautiful setting. Would recommend for group of friends or a family with kids.
Great pool and location ”
Great family holiday accomodation. My kids loved the pool (thank goodness it was heated), it's right on the beach, park close by, cafes, restaurants and supermarket all within walking distance. The apartment was comfortable with everything we needed- just be aware of the 5am summer sunrise and no blackout curtains!
Good ol favourite ”
Pros :value for money when finding a good deal. Location is hard to beat with ocean front, close to cafes and restaurants. We love The view and sound do ocean and the facilities. Cons:units are all so different and the past year we have stayed 3 times and always had something different not right with the units. This time it was the beds -they were small (double for main) and very worn out uncomfortable mattreseeses. The shower in ensuite was very low pressure. The fridge shelves were broken and the frypans were very used and in poor condition that I couldn't use to cook. The other con was the unit above was having work done and we would wake (on our holiday) to the loud sound of workers above, even prior t 7am! (Holidays are for sleeping in !) Besides all of this , we will keep coming back but only when we can access crazy good deals, wouldn't pay full price without these things being fixed. Need to have a set standard even tho the rooms are individually owned.
The swimming pool area was first class and excellent proximity to beach. The apartment we had (11F) was a good size and basically clean but could do with updating and a good spring clean. All the pictures of the apartments online were a lot more modern. We had a sea view from the lounge room but were on the side of the building so facing north up the Gold Coast Highway. Still a good view though. Would definitely stay again but would ask for an apartment towards the middle of the building with more ocean view.
Best location on the coast ”
Uninterrupted beach views and sound of ocean is what Brings us back. The facilities are also of high standard. The bathrooms in 13 B needs renovating as showers were dribbling(no pressure) and doors falling off . The rug and the bed covers were dusty and stained and the curtains could do with a good clean or replacing. Staff were friendly and accomodating.
Absolutely perfect ”
To sum it up in two words " absolutely perfect". The staff are fantastic, the pool, BBQ and garden areas are so well maintained. The apartment was just perfect, and has everything you need. I can't wait to go back there for our next holiday.
Great place for a.family holiday”
We love this place. It's the second time we have stayed here and can't wait to go back. Great location. Large spacious apartments. Beautiful pool. Easy beach access. Perfect for young families. We wouldn't stay anywhere else now.
Spacious with ocean views from every room”
A luxurious apartment in an older style apartment block which is progressively being refurbished. Well equipped kitchen but take plastic plates & cups if wanted for BBQ in pool area as none supplied. 2 ensuite & 1 main bathroom meant plenty of options for 4 adults & 4 kids. Great views up the coastline towards Surfers paradise. No air conditioning but sea breezes and ceiling fans ensured we were very comfortable in one of the hottest months. Very expensive in summer school holidays compared with other times.
Nice apartment, great location.”
We were there in the middle of november and immediately loved the place. It was so breezy and the view from the balcony is amazing. Don't forget to request for the ocean view. The apartment is nice and clean with all the basic amenities and a working kitchen. A pleasant stay and not too far from Surfers Paradise too.
the room was very clean, tidy,and spacious. the views that we had from our room were fantastic, the pool area was very relaxing. great location that catered to all our needs. the staff at the resort were extremely friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay very enjoyable. i would highly recommend this resort to anyone that is travelling to coolangatta.
