“A Little Gem”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Not sure if I should share this precious little secret in case we can't get booked next time! My wife and I have now spent our third year at The Palms for a relaxing week. The apartment just gets better. Nicely decorated, comfortably furnished, well equipped and a great location. Stay local or wander further afield, the Palms has an ideal location, placed mid-way between Newquay and St Ives, but there are lots of places to visit and things to do in the general area. A surfers paradise, but we just like to sit in the (world renowned) Blue Bar and watch, especially as the sun goes down.
We will definitely be back!

“Perfect apartment with a sea view”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The Palms is a small but perfectly formed apartment in a fantastic location. 2 minutes walk to the beach which is stunning especially at low tide - the rock pools are amazing. Porthtowan is a small unspoilt village, with 2 pubs, a café that is definitely not a greasy spoon and an ice cream parlour. Also has a small convenience store and fish&chips. The Blue Bar, is lovely & lively, great menu, views of the bay and has wifi! The standard of The Palms is very good, nice new fitted kitchen and bathroom. I loved sitting on the patio eating hearing and seeing the sea. Porthtowan is in a great location for visiting a lot of Cornwall. We went as far west as Lands end & east Eden project - both under an hour. Can't recommend this property enough.

“Clean, comfortable apartment close to the beach”
Reviewed 17 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

The apartment was very clean and comfortable and had everything we could need for a care-free holiday. The lovely beach is a one minute walk away so not far at all to carry all our wetsuits and windbreakers. There is a cafe just by the beach for snacks and ice-creams. The Bluebar overlooks the beach and does really nice meals which are a bit different from your usual pub grub - a really relaxed atmosphere but did get busy. The weather was good whilst we were there so didn't explore the area much but will do the cliff walks next time we go! Booking the holiday was really straightforward and Caroline very helpful.
