Nice to be able to enjoy some time at Pacific Palms. The place was comfortable and peaceful. It is quite a long way from shops and also a good distance from the beach. The pool was nice, but not heated. Sadly the tennis courts are closed for repair, though we didn't see anyone there working on it at the time.... More

Loved the Four days we spent in this resort. Just fifteen minutes outside Forster. Clean with good amenities, pool was great to relax in. Air conditioned cabins. Look out for the kookaburras and the friendly bush turkey. Staff were very helpful. Would return.

Friendly and comfortable "resort" with very clean but well worn facilities. Lack of an outlook from the very tiny front porch was disappointing in the unit we were allocated. But the kitchen and bathroom were in good shape and the bed was comfortable indicating a fairly recent light make over - a good start that needs to extend to fixing... More

We stayed at Pacific Palms last week. The resort was clean and tidy with a lovely pool area and games room for the children. It was very handy to Elizabeth Beach, Forster and Tuncurry. Wider afield there are heaps of bush walks and other stunning natural places to visit. We had a lovely week and the staff were very helpful.

This is our second visit, and now I'm wondering why we waited so long. This resort dates from the seventies I'd say, but has been kept up to date. The units are spacious, with a verandah looking out, in our case, onto gardens and trees which are inhabited by numerous breeds of birds including kookaburras who like to visit. There... More

We stayed with another couple for a week in a two bedroom villa. The villa was of adequate size, well-equipped and clean. We were also treated with regular visits from the kookaburra family and other birds. They are used to people and come right up close. The heated pool is the best feature. It is in a lovely setting with... More
