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... More

The resort is close to local attractions and the staff were very friendly and tried to accommodate our requests. Unfortunately, the hot water service that serviced two units was not large enough, and we had cold showers on two days. The resort needs quite a bit of maintenance, but the rooms were clean and roomy with a good bed. The... More

We surely did not expect such a great hotel in Currumbin! It's near to the airport, walking distance to nearest bus station is the Pines and has a really amazing lakeside view. The receptionist has been a great help to us too! And they have a really nice shower as well.. The shopping centre is just beside so food and... More

The managers here are lovely and can't do enough to help you but the resort is very tired. It's lovely over looking the lake - very peaceful. Cleanliness is also a bit sad. We had a one bedroom unit and had to use the fold out couch and a roll away for three of us. No mattress protectors - yuk!!!... More

Older resort, about time for a makeover. I was welcomed at reception who were helpful and provided me with local transport information. I think families would feel comfortable in this type of accommodation. It has a BBQ area, swimming pool and a cafe/bar.

Such a pleasure dealing with the very friendly, helpful staff. Donna in reception went out of her way to assist with our booking. The location is so convenient to The Pines Shopping Center, our room had a really pleasant outlook over the pond. Having a kitchen with stove & oven was great to cater for ourselves! Only negative was, sharp... More

We had 2 nights here and really enjoyed it. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment that was very clean a little dated, the bed was very comfy and the view of the canal out of the lounge room was spectacular. Having the shopping center next door was also very handy. The resort itself is nice with a great pool... More

Avoid this place. Too many problems, poor management, terrible quality, no logic. We travel a lot and we are not demanding. I always love writing good reviews, but unfortunately not this time. Dirty, messy, old and abandoned. For every question there is an excuse. - Photos in the internet differ from the real rooms. - They put us in a... More

We booked this for it's closeness to a charity walk I was participating. Not far off the M1 but wouldn't know as there was no traffic noise. We had a ground floor studio apartment. It was clean and neat and tidy

We arrived late to check in as had driven up from Sydney, all we wanted was to get a key and go to bed, instead, no one on site, no receptionist or anything and you had to ring a number who then talked you through what to do, just something we're not used to to be honest Pros: - Excellent... More

Thank you for reviewing Bay of Palms Resort, we appreciate all feedback, good and bad. You will find quite a few smaller Hotels & Resorts on the Gold Coast use the after hours check-in system, we have found this works quite successfully.
