This is the second occasion in which I have stayed at the bay of palms resort, the staff are very welcoming and friendly, stayed in a different apartment this time and was equally happy then the first time I stayed, prices are very acceptable, close to all the theme parks, and with a shopping centre right at your door step,...

Booked this based on past reviews & photos on trip advisor. We where disappointed when we first arrived as the place looked a bit run down. Found the car park which is difficult to park in & a long way from the room we stayed in. The room looked basic & didn't reflect the price paid. The room was very...

My wife and I stayed there 2 weeks ago and had a very good experience. The staff were very nice and welcoming. Very nice decor and the room was of a very good standard. The location is very quiet and close to shops and the beach. Canals at the rear of the property are very nice. Would stay there again....

Room was surprisingly large, comfy and clean. Close to Airport and to the Palm beach. Right next to a mall (food) but still sporting nice outdoors - a small lake, pool, barbie area... The staff was very nice too. The only negative thing was, that there is only paid WiFi service. As an Australian, I used my own mobile service,...

Situated about 10 - 15 min drive from Coolangatta Airport. Great shopping mall immediately adjacent. Takes about 20 min to drive to Pacific Fair the major shopping arcade at Broadbeach central on the coast. The motel is basic but well equipped and clean. I suggest asking for a room on the upper balcony that overlooks the lake. Other rooms overlook...

Close to shops, transport and beach. No frills but very convenient and quiet compared to other accomodation on the glitter strip.Rooms are basic but comfortable and clean and have all you need for a lengthy stay if you need. Added bonus of a lovely lake if your looking for a view and some space to let the kids play.

Recently stayed for 2 nights mid week. Checked in and out, outside of reception hours with ease. Didn't use the pool but it looked nice as did the bbq area. My room was clean, parking available onsite , shopping centre next door. Good value for a great price. I will stay again.

After reading some of the reviews on this Resort I was going to change my accommodation, glad I didn't, what a surprise, could not fault it in anyway, room was spacious, clean and well set out, bathroom was clean and well lite. Staff were wonderful. My room over looked a lake. Only 15 min drive from Gold Coast Airport and...
