Been to Disneyland... Now come to Palmerland ?
Having read recent reviews, we were quite concerned about our stay here, however a conference necessitated staying so off we went.
Greeting us on arrival ware titanic references, a dinosaur, subliminal signs in size 200 font saying "Palmer grill, fantastic food", a collection of cars, more photos of Clive then personally I'm comfortable seeing (I'm actually a little surprised there wasn't a photo of him beside my bed, but thankfully I could watch one of the 3 tv Channels about him should I have felt a little "Clive deprived" upon returning to my room) ... But this being said... The staff were fantastic, the room while a little dated, was very clean, big and functional and the resort facilities were quite good
The breakfast staff in particular I'd like to mention as being fantastic.
My wife with children went to and from the resort frequently and then formula 1 golf carts were quickly on station to transfer them to and from the room.
