“Perfect for our family holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

This was our second trip . We bought a time share here after our visit last year.
As before, the area is stunning & the beautifully landscaped resort is perfectly situated for the beach or the lake . It's an easy 10 min drive to Forster , and our favorite fish & chip shop Beach St !

This resort is very well maintained and unique, being surrounded by beautiful lakes and mountains. The management staff were always very helpful for us in determining what to do, where to go, and how to get there. They take personal interest in their guests. The units are very nice, of adequate size, and fully equipped with everything needed to make our stay enjoyable. We enjoyed waking up each morning to the various birds in the area putting on a beautiful concert. If given a chance, we will certainly return to this resort.

Room Tip: I can't help but believe that every room on this property is good.

We (2 couples) recently spent 1 fantastic week at Pacific Palms Resort. Our 2 br unit was roomy and extremely comfortable...very newly refurbished. Slight hiccup with fridge initially was quickly addressed by the efficient staff and an alternative for the interim was provided so our food was not spoiled. All our requests and needs were cheerfully seen to by reception staff. grounds staff were also helpful and informative with great local knowledge. This area really is stunning and we were lucky to strike perfect weather for our entire week. Elizabeth Beach is lovely and only a short walk away. Tip: always swim between flags, the north end of the beach is tricky near the rocks as my adventurous husband discovered. We took the guided walk which was very informative and enjoyable. Also visited nearby sights: Seal Rocks and Smiths Lake a must! Lots to see and do nearby. This is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle. Plenty of places to visit by car or just relax and enjoy the well maintained facilities in company of fantastic wildlife visitors while kicking back!

Room Tip: Contact the resort and explain what you are after. They are more than helpful in attending to reques...

We are a family of 5, and stayed at the Pacific Palms Resort in Dec 2012. Initially we were underwhelmed by the apartment, but by the end of our stay we were happy with its facilities. The 2 bedrooms were comfortable and spacious enough, and the bathroom, although a bit on the small side, was good enough. The furniture is looking a bit tired now, but then for the price you shouldn't expect much more I guess.

The great thing about Pacific Palms Resort is the location - a 5 minute walk from the beautiful beach, as well as some nice walks in the bush along the coastal path. It is about a 15 minute drive into Forster, which has all the supplies you need. Also worthy of note are the fabulous lakes; it is such a shame they don't seem to be used very much (that we saw).

A minor grumble is the games room, which has a rather depressing feel to it and pinches too much money from your kids for some pretty disappointing games. However the pool is good, and the tennis courts are free and in good condition. It also has a nice little playground for younger ones.

Overall, I think we would stay here again as it is in a lovely setting, and we enjoyed the kookaburras sitting on our veranda and trying to pinch our steak as we barbecued it!

Am very pleased to add our review from our recent 7 day stay at Pacific Palms Resort. Staff were available when we needed them & we found them to be polite & very friendly.The gardening/mtnce men enjoyed their touch of "customer service" & really enjoyed a yarn. The unit met our needs for a relaxing time. It was clean & comfortable. We had a quiet & private rear patio amongst palms & huge stag horn. We used the BBQ s twice & each morning they were cleaned first thing ready for the next day. The whole experience was pleasing. Thanks.

Room Tip: We stayed in unit 24 but all units appear to be good

Thank you for the most wonderful relaxing week we would have jumped at the chance to stay longer if the resort had a vacancy but i am not surprised they didn't as this would have to be the most perfect place for a peaceful getaway i have found and only just 3 hours from the crazy hectic life of Sydney. We will definately be back with family next time as we were welcomed with good old fashioned country hospitality that is so hard to find these days. Nick, Susan and their staff are so helpful and friendly that we felt like we were staying with people we had known forever. Well done for making your guests feel so special, see you again soon. Oh please say hello to Alice for us we miss her friendly visits already.

This was the first time staying here with my family in December and am already planning my next stay here again however 1 week was definitely not long enough to enjoy the facilities and surroundings. The kitchen was complete with equipment and the bbq's were placed conveniently near each unit. My children loved all the native birds that came to our balcony each morning. Used the tennis courts and pool almost everyday, however spa was not working at the time. The location is also close to Elizabeth Beach which was perfect and safe for young kids to swim and close enough to Forster/Tuncurry to get some supplies and to go fishing. The only thing was there was no reception to use your mobile phone or internet, you have to pay to use the wifi or go down to Elizabeth beach to use your devices. Good place to get away from it all and a side trip to Seal Rocks is a must!
