Very good rooms. Very spacious. Wifi had intermittent disconnects but worked most of the time. It is located on a prime location. 15 - 20 mins from airport (by car), 2 mins walk to Esplanade, Night Mall is the next building, Marlin Marina is 10 mins walk. Full of restaurants around it. Very nice and courteous staff. Will never even... More

Il palazzo lived up to the previous reviews. Couldn't fault the accomodation or location at all. It had everything we needed and was very clean, bed very comfortable and very quiet at night. Excellent value and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Our group of 15 found a gem. The location is perfect to food, shops, stores and a short walk to the pier; rooms spacious, clean, equipped with washer and dryer and there is an inviting pool. Donovan, Kay and Frances were exceptional and helpful hosts. You might even consider their help in planning and arranging excursions to the outer reefs... More

The hotel is located one block off the Esplanade, which put us near to all the action. The hotel is small and the proprietors on site, so the service is friendly and personal- no chain hotel impersonality here. The rooms are small suites with a petite kitchen, sitting room and a separate bedroom. The air conditioning is very efficient and... More

On the positive side the hotel is very well located, one block from the Esplanade. Also the room was clean and quiet with the bedroom away from the front. The staff is friendly and helpful. Cons: the decor is very dated and the free inroom wifi was extremely slow.

Thank you for your very positive review of Il Palazzo - it is always appreciated when guests go to the trouble of writing a review as it is so helpful for potential guests. Although you found the décor to be somewhat dated, it is in fact a typical Italian style of décor. The new National Broadband Network is currently being... More

This is a wonderful location within walking distance of most things in town. It included a parking space under the hotel which was a great saver of time and money. Rooms were basic furnished apartments, and could have used more clothes storage (only room for one person on a few small shelves). Great to have a washer/dryer for beach time... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Il Palazzo, which is very much appreciated. As you say, the excellent location, along with free secure car parking is a great attraction. We were surprised that you felt there was insufficient storage space as nobody has ever made that comment to us before. The apartments are designed for... More

Staying at the Il Palazzo was great. For us it was the proximity to the lagoon that attracted us. We had our scuba gear with us in a wheelie bag and the marina and checkin point were a short distance from the hotel. Checkin was a breeze and the allocated parking spot was certainly handy. The night markets are virtually... More

Thank you so much for your very positive review of Il Palazzo and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. I believe from your comment that you would have stayed in an apartment that is managed privately by the owner. This is the only apartment where we have a different arrangement of payment for the Wi-Fi.... More

Not sure where the 'Boutique' angle comes from, but it's a great location, clean, tidy, with functioning wifi, a decent kitchen with a microwave, the air-con did the business, there was a swimming pool, a TV that worked and you could walk to the Esplanade for a drink or a little further to the jetty to get on your boat...

No complains, everything worked, from booking trips to free Wi-Fi. Location is very good, I had no problems with the late check-in and Donovan at the reception provided good and efficient service when needed.

I can't think of anything negative to say about this place. The location is great, one street west of the main stretch of the Esplanade, which means that you have great access to everything with only a fraction of the crowds. The people who work here are professional, helpful, and friendly. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. If you... More
