Palm Beach has a great location right on the beach, plenty of sun beds both on the beach and around the pool. Rooms are a little basic but cleaned regularly and have everything we needed. Food was ok, breakfast a bit repetitive but plenty of it. Hotel restaurant fairly cheap but still a good standard. Would definitely stay here again.

Our stay at this hotel was really made special by our bird watching experiences with Aziz the resident guide. He is a very personable, genuine, no hassle guide who really knows his stuff. We went out in the Kotu area and then on a 2 day excursion to Temba Lodge. The lodge is very basic but the early morning trip... More

You will like this place. The atmosphere is very nice. Entertainment nightly by the pool. Free breakfast. Very inexpensive. The food was really good. I am not the type to spend a lot of money for a hotel, but I felt guilty that they charged so little for what they give you. I even saw the NFL playoff game on... More
