Having stayed at the Palm on previous visits to Kalbarri and on the strength of recent reviews, we had no hesitation booking in for our Kalbarri holiday in February.

Check in was quickly taken care of by the pleasant and friendly staff next door at the Edge Resort and we were given easy follow instructions to our apartment.

First impressions were that the apartment was huge although somewhat dated and extremely hot and stuffy. Given we had provided our credited card details to guarantee the first night charges, it would have been nice if the air conditioner had been turned on earlier in the day. It ended up taking the tiny and noisy air conditioners in the living room and bedroom 8 hours to bring the temp down to something bearable. Not a good start.

Pros: The Palm's apartments are large and clean with good lighting and great water pressure to the shower. The motel itself is centrally located and easy walking distance to the waters edge, shops, restaurants etc. The BBQ and pool facilities are also a good addition although as mentioned in previous reviews they could do with a few more sun lounges.

Cons: The apartments are dated with inefficient air conditioning and furniture that's in need of replacement. The lounge chairs and beds in particular were well past their prime. We were also surprised to learn that the apartments were not serviced at all during our stay; something that was not mentioned anywhere on the motel website.

Overall we do not beleive the Palm currently represents good value for money.

Would we stay again. Probably not.

Stayed here last November for 4 nights while on W.A. holiday. Accommodation was basic but fine & clean. Pools were good but could of done with some more sun loungers. Reception being next door was confusing at first but fine. Would stay again but only on an offer.

Been to Kalbarri many times and have stayed at numerous places. This was our first time staying at the Palm Resort and loved it. Our apartment was spacious and equipped with everything we needed. The carport was large enough to store our trailer, bikes etc. Great location to shops, beach, skate park (very happy children)! Pool area was lovely with good shaded areas and bbq's were absolutely spotless. Staff very friendly and helpful. 3 weeks was not long enough, didn't want to leave! We will definitely stay here again.

Very disappointed, no reception at this hotel, had to go next door, reception staff were not very helpful. Units look ok from the outside until you step inside - back to the 70's. Everything was out dated and old. The vertical blinds in both bedrooms were broken and so could not be closed. Pool and gardens were suitable. Will not return and will not recommend.

Shower and sink blocked which flooded the entire bathroom, someone came out that night to repair it, but said he would be back in the morning to fix it, meanwhile there are six people who have been travelling for 8 hour's waiting to use the one bathroom, the next morning the handyman returned, he had another look saying it's gonna need to be repaired from outside, we again waited for another two hours, during this time they made no effort to move us to another room which there was plenty, three hours went past until we phoned reception to see what was taking so long, the customer was service was poor and very unhelpful, we had only planned to stay for two nights, part of our day was wasted, we won't be staying or recommending them again, I urge people to avoid at all costs

Nothing remarkable about the Palm Resort. Queen deluxe Rooms were spacious enough. located not far from the main drag, but not close enough to have views of the storefront. Reasonable prices for peak holiday periods. Most annoying thing is the requirement to wash your own cups and plates, without a kitchenette or any of the things that you would normally use to wash.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple
