We stayed one week at The Palms and our visit was what I would call average to good. The facilities in the resort are first class and the park is kept clean, tidy, and quite presentable. The paved roads were in great shape. The quality of entertainment for a resort of this size I would say was very good. This is a resort that is on the very edge of being what I would call the best in Yuma, Az.
If you are renting one of their park model/casitas then you will be very pleased. Unfortunately, where they lose points is in their RV section. We have an 38' motorhome and the space we got, and any other motorhomes we could see got as well, were quite large sites but landscaped with only 1" navy jack gravel. It was clean and weed free but it sure was generic and UNINVITING. Essentially, they are a gravel row parking lot with hookups and no privacy plantings between or behind any of the sites... If only these resort operators would understand that us snowbirds that travel south for the winter have no problem in paying more money to have some landscaping and a nice green INVITING site. It really doesn't take much to at least put some grass/greenery and a couple of trees (ala lazydays rv, tucson, az / outdoor resorts, Palm Springs, CA) in each of the sites to completely change the ambiance the resort would take on and for to want to come and stay longer. It is because of this that we didn't stay longer and went to another resort that did provide this type of landscape ambiance.
Really, there isn't much to do in Yuma, Az and a nice site to come home to I would think would encourage more snowbird travellers to stay in Yuma, Az vs. places like Palm Springs & Hemet, CA.
