I stayed at the Palm Plaza in a 'standard room' on my own in April 2011 and was impressed. My boyfriend and I went back last week. I booked a 'standard room' but we were very pleasantly surprised to find that we had been upgraded to a suite, for free. The rooms are bright and spacious. Steve, the manager, is very friendly and helpful. It's not a huge resort but the pool is a good size, clean, and has several recliners near it to relax in. There is a lot of well maintained tropical greenery so it feels quite luxurious. You can walk to the gay beach in ten minutes, and although this place is not "on the beach", I'd rather be a few blocks from it anyway. It makes parking easy, and it's dead silent around there at night. The breakfast basket they give you every day is great - yogurt, muffins, juice, etc. Even the coffee we made in the coffee maker tasted good (which as any coffee lover will tell you, is a huge problem in most hotel rooms). The ONE AND ONLY negative is that the mattresses are getting to a point where they need to be replaced. But they're not bad. I'd definitely stay here again.
