We enjoyed our recent stay at the Palmer Coolum resort but have noticed services and staff have been reduced compared to previous visits probably due to reduced patronage. The Asian restaurant in the square (now Smiling Duck) was only open two of the five nights we stayed. The beach was only patrolled one of our three visits and there were no umbrellas or chairs. So we didn't swim. The beach club pool area was not serviced though food could be ordered in (slower with added fee). The gardens were well maintained. We did not play golf and noticed that only a few did.
On the plus side staff, when present, were wonderful and the food possibly a little better than before.
