We stayed here for the weekend for a nearby Wedding and this resort was perfect for what we needed. For a cheap $89/night we weren't expecting too much however we were blown away with what we walked into. Friendly staff (and dog!), easy to access studio room (8A), clean and modern room, TV, couch, portable hot plate, very comfortable. The... More

Our group stayed at the Bay of Palms for 11 days. There were 55 of us! Ann & Ian were so accommodating & helpful! The majority of our group consisted of teenagers & it was the perfect place for us to stay. The rooms are comfortable & well equipped for even an extended stay. I personally stayed in a room... More

My friend and I stayed in a studio room for our week's holiday. Our room was very well equipped for self catering, and very comfortable. It overlooked a beautiful lake which had a pathway along one side and came to a park playground area. This resort is in a quiet and peaceful area away the the noise and bustle of... More

Was the perfect place for us. Near the airport but far from surfer's paradise. Had rented a car so that was not an issue. Very friendly staff. Beautiful lakeside with benches and clean rooms. Honestly cannot think of a negative point. We took the one bedroom apartment for a week.

The Bay of Palms is essentially a cheap and effective little resort, one that ticks all of the boxes without necessarily going just that little extra mile. I stayed in one of the studios, which was perfectly fine, and exceptionally spacious. The bed was extremely comfortable, and there was a few appliances provided including fridge, microwave, kettle and even a... More

Initial problems with locating our booking which was made through Qantas. The reception was closed when we arrived (it closes at 11am on a Sunday). There is a phone available at the reception though to book in. When our booking wasn't found the manager came back to the hotel and got us checked in. The room was quite spacious however... More

What a great place to stay. We had a studio room that was large, with great views overlooking the lake and had all the facilities we needed - especially as there are on-site barbecues and a bar! Good pool too. The two beaches are a longish walk away, but interesting (especially if you go along the boardwalk through the Beree... More

Lovely stay as the resort was in a nice area. Stayed here for 2 weeks! Would recommend hiring a car to venture out as we visited the Gold Coast most days and travelling to Brisbane as well!
