Had a amazing time @ Bay of Palms resort. Everything was perfect, clean well kitted out rooms, great service, friendly staff and central to everything in the area. The manager Jake was someone that went the extra mile. He made sure we had everything to make us feel like we were part of the family. Thank you for making us...

Had a great room overlooking a pretty lake. Big, comfortable, modern and with excellent fitouts (stove, big fridge, oven). There was even a pool and bbq area to relax in which was really nice. The staff were super friendly and helpful, on booking way back in Nov I'd messed up my dates completely and they changed the dates of my...

Chosen on price, location next to a major shopping centre and proximity to beaches, this well maintained fairly basic facility exceeded our expectations.. everything we needed nothing we didnt. There was an appealing pool, the room was well airconditioned with a nice view of the lake, it was quiet with a kitchenette that provided enough for a couple.. On checkout...

We stayed there for 3 nights and had the best experience ever. Nice swimming pool and even nicer view of the lake. Staff were very nice and friendly. Planning to visit next year again Insha Allah. I would simply say I loved the place

This is the second occasion in which I have stayed at the bay of palms resort, the staff are very welcoming and friendly, stayed in a different apartment this time and was equally happy then the first time I stayed, prices are very acceptable, close to all the theme parks, and with a shopping centre right at your door step,...

Booked this based on past reviews & photos on trip advisor. We where disappointed when we first arrived as the place looked a bit run down. Found the car park which is difficult to park in & a long way from the room we stayed in. The room looked basic & didn't reflect the price paid. The room was very...

My wife and I stayed there 2 weeks ago and had a very good experience. The staff were very nice and welcoming. Very nice decor and the room was of a very good standard. The location is very quiet and close to shops and the beach. Canals at the rear of the property are very nice. Would stay there again....

Room was surprisingly large, comfy and clean. Close to Airport and to the Palm beach. Right next to a mall (food) but still sporting nice outdoors - a small lake, pool, barbie area... The staff was very nice too. The only negative thing was, that there is only paid WiFi service. As an Australian, I used my own mobile service,...

Great location, great place to relax with great view. Everything you need in the resort and 3 minutes walk to a shopping plaza. Even a little bar in the resort, staff where very friendly. Definitely will stay again 😄

Situated about 10 - 15 min drive from Coolangatta Airport. Great shopping mall immediately adjacent. Takes about 20 min to drive to Pacific Fair the major shopping arcade at Broadbeach central on the coast. The motel is basic but well equipped and clean. I suggest asking for a room on the upper balcony that overlooks the lake. Other rooms overlook...
