We stayed here for one week back in December 2012 (after moving on from another part of the island) and can honestly say that it was the best place that we have ever stayed.
Food was fantastic - each day for lunch and dinner we had something new. For those complaining that 5 courses was too much - you can easily tell the staff that you dont want to each so much and they will tailor the meal for you. Nothing is too much / a problem for them, they will always do whatever they can to help and make you comfortable. Terry and all of the staff were very attentive, polite and very very kind. They knew that we loved chocolate so on our very last day they made us a delicious chocolate tart! It was my birthday while we were out there and I was treated so well. I had a complimentary massage and a delicious chocolate cake after dinner!
We stayed in Villa Jasmine which was lovely and spacious for the x2 of us. It was very clean, spacious and yes of course there are mosquitos but what do you expect in a hot/humid climate. Take some repellant and stop complaining! Also yes the TV signal was not great but seriously who cares!? You have the beautiful, unspoilt beach 10 seconds away from your front door (as well as a private banda), so what does the TV matter?
Cannot say enough nice things about The Palms, other than I wish we stayed longer!
