“Still a good base”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

This was our 5th visit to Sunset Crest and the 4th to The Palms and I still think they are a good base. Its 7 years now since Halcyon Palms had a refurbish and it is starting to show. The furnishings are grubby rather than dirty and the fixtures all seem to have little bits of wear a tear but these little apartments still have a sunny feel to them and I think they are great value for money. The apartments are brushed out and have the bins emptied most days, towels are changes every other day and bedding change twice a week. Whilst I was there I had a look at Travellers Palm the other apartments which make up The Palms resort, they are just at the end of a complete refurbishment and look spectacular - my only concern is how much they will cost in future! I would have no hesitation in going back to The Palms however if you want 5* then find somewhere else and pay 5* prices

Room Tip: Ask for apartments 1 2 3 or 4 as these are single storey apartments

Well if your looking for cheap accomadation in Holetown then this is the place.
It is very very basic but if you want somewhere to put your head then thats about it.
Even though it wasn't dirty it never felt clean.
You wouldn't want to cook anything there but if your eating out then that's not a problem as you are spoilt for choice only five miutes or so walk away.
Few other things that were not right.
Wardrobe doors broken
Sink plug broken in bathroom
Large crack in draining board
Badly stained sink in kitchen
Hair dryer was off the wall and didnt work.
We stayed in the Halcyon as the palm resort is being re-furbished lets hope they move on to these next.
Good points were it was fairly quite
The pool was clean
And the location was excellent.

Room Tip: Try the refurbished rooms at the palm resort

Second time we have been to this resort, staying at Halcyon Palm, I think the better of the two, although Travellers Palm has the restaurant and reception. We always stay for three weeks over the Xmas/New Year break and the service never falters. Yes, we have had some problems with the apartment this year, but they were immediately dealt with. The owners do need to spend some money on regular maintenance though, so these little mishaps don't happen. It is a great base, with friendly staff and good food in the bar restaurant if you want it.
