It's called Palmer Resort for a reason. Clive Palmer is EVERYWHERE. From the posters on the fence, to the dinasours on the golf course, and the promotion of his titanic project you just can't get away from him (or his personal passions). I found it overwhelmed the resort, which is also showing its age and in need of a refurbishment. I feel sorry for the staff who are great, and making a big effort to make do with what they've got - but I think they are fighting a losing battle. Certainly not the luxurious resort it was in its Hyatt days, but if you love golf, are looking for a 3 star experience, and can ignore Clivesville you could have a good stay. I won't be back.
