We stayed at the Palms in April. We purchased an online Groupon deal which made it roughly AUD $110-120 per night. The Palms advertise for almost double this elsewhere. To put it simply, this hotel is good if you get a good deal, if you pay double what we paid, it's not worth it.
+ Rooms are great: they are big, designed nicely and are modern & clean. Shuttle goes every hour so it's really convenient. Staff are lovely too.
- Apart from the rooms everything else in the hotel is needing a paint job/uplift - especially in the reception areas. All the gardens are a bit rough and everything just looks tired generally. The pool is uninviting, the water was a murky-white colour which looked like it had enough chlorine to any kill-low flying birds. Breakfast is very repetitive and variety is lacking but you do get eggs how you like it on toast, noodles etc.
Need to know: The location is about a 5-10 minute shuttle drive from the main area. The beach is a 5 minute walk from the Palms and when you hit the beach you need to keep walking left, past fishing boats etc. until you get to Friday's hotel as this is where the beach starts getting really nice. We actually used Friday's beach chairs for the day (you need a minimum spend for lunch/drinks to cover the hire of the beach chairs etc. which was minimal).
