We were so looking forward to staying at this place as one of our relatives highly recommended it but it was a big let down. We arrived at this place around mid day, the entrance looked pretty awesome with big dinosaurs and that was about it. We checked in, got dropped off at our room,we opened the door and sense... More

We stayed here on the weekend for 1 night with friends as the boys were playing golf the next morning. The whole resort is tired and needs some TLC. The gardens were so overgrown and there was mud all over the villas which only need a pressure wash to get clean. There were small plants and leaves growing out the... More

I really didn't know what to expect staying here. We stayed in a two bedroom Golf Villa as the Villa's were the only rooms available to suit us at last minute at New Years and were very expensive at $500 a night. The room was lovely and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Because we had paid so much... More

We spent 2 days at the resort over Christmas and boxing day. We got to see kangaroos close up. The rooms were great but not every unit comes with a kitchen (we should have asked). Buggies with very friendly drivers take you to and from your unit which unfortunately for us just didn't work well as there was always something... More

Clearly this resort used to be very good, but appears to have declined rapidly recently. The facilities were poorly maintained, often closed and there was a clear shortage of staff across the whole resort - there appeared to be a real lack of management. However the majority of the staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you. With investment... More

My family and I have been to this resort many times over the years and we love it. We've just come back from our last visit and can't wait to go back! The staff are so friendly and service is great, from front reception, bell desk staff to all restaurant staff, you all made us feel welcome and special. Plenty... More

Although this place was a little out of shape the short staff did everything they could to please, the little buggies that ferried everyone from there rooms to the conference venues or the restaurant were fantastic I would like to commend them, they worked 24 hrs an with the staff shortest we often saw the same driver. We only did... More

I was dubious about staying at the palmer coolum resort after reading a lot of negative reviews, and hearing of second hand bad experiences. The reality was 5 star all the way, excellent staff and facilities, the golf course in top condition, the only thing was the expensive breakfast($30 a head and then extra for a coffee)make sure to include...

"I am thankful for everything and have no complaints whatsever." Room airconditioner wasnt effective and was fixed at 10.30 at night, thankfully. Buffet Breakfast at Ned Kellys restaurant had good variety of foods. cooked to order poached eggs are available. Lovely place to enjoy the sounds and temperature of queensland!
