We turned up a little after check-in time and our room wasn't ready but the lady at reception was very helpful and went out of her way to inform us of all the things to see and do while we waited for our keys. We stayed in the budget holiday villa as that was the only one available for 5 nights. It is for 2 Adults & 2 children which we had but I found it a bit to cosy with the lounge only suitable for a couple of people and once we unpacked we were tripping over each other so I would go for the standard accommodation or better if you can afford it. Everything was clean and when we had a couple of issues with the cabin it was fixed that day. There were a lot of housekeepers and maintenance men around keeping the park clean & tidy. We spent most of our time at the theme parks so it was hard to judge how the days were at the holiday village while we weren't there. My son spent one afternoon in the resorts pools and he loved it, there was also plenty of security and people around enjoying themselves. They had kids activities everyday with bird-feeding and creative things to do. My kids were getting ready to go out to theme parks each day at these times but the other kids looked like they had fun. The Macaws and cockatoos etc were presented nicely around the park along a rainforest walk which has been designed to go around the park. The kiosk is nicely stocked but there is also plenty of shops nearby such as Woolworths, Pizza Hut, Red Rooster etc within walking distance. Even though it wasn't a major issue I found the price of $19.00 a day for internet a bit steep. A few places we have stayed at it has been free Wi-Fi. The best thing about this park is that is situated between Seaworld / Surfers Paradise and Movieworld / Dreamworld. It is certainly a park to stay at if you plan to use it as a base to visit all the site around the area.

Dear Dean,
Thank you for your review. We really appreciate your time taken to write such a comprehensive recount of your Gold Coast holiday at Ashmore Palms. From your comments, it sounds like your family would have been more comfortable in a 2-bedroom cabin rather than the 1.5-bedroom Holiday Villa, especially for an extended stay. It was very interesting to read your perception of Ashmore Palms’ staff, facilities and services. Thank you again for your encouraging remarks. We have noted your comment about the Wi-Fi charges and will add it to the agenda of the next pricing review. We were happy you found Ashmore Palms’ conveniently located to all major Gold Coast attractions. We hope to see you and your family here again soon.

Ashmore Palms Holiday Village is a beautiful holiday village. The Resort pools are amazing and excellent for young children too. The cabins are excellent and extremely well equipped. The park is kept in extremely tidy and the bird avaries all around the the pool area is excellent with beautiful Macaws and other birds. The park is extremely kid friendly with some brand new play parks. The extra activities they put on for kids during the school holidays are fantastic. This is extremely cost effective for families. The staff go out of the way to help. We have continued and will continue to back there for our holidays. Only 15-20mins into Surfers it is a brilliant location.

A group of 4 of us stayed here over the Big Day Out weekend, and it was everything we wanted and more!! Everybody at reception was so lovely and really made the start to our weekend away so special!! The room was perfect! Full sized fridge, more than enough room, tv with DVD player, air con, all necessary cooking equipment. Walking distance to food and bottle shops. I can't praise Ashmore Palms Holiday Village more, the best value and friendliest park staff anyone could ask for!! It suited us as a group of under 25's, and would be more than happy to recommend to family's or retirees!

In a word - BRILLIANT!

Don't be fooled by the drive through the Ashmore Industrial Park to get to this place, it really is an oasis in the desert.

The facilities for kids are brilliant, with a range of local and exotic birds to look at and interact with on the daily bird tours/activities (all conveniently in the early morning so as not to encroach on theme park time) and pools in a resort style setting.

The cabin itself, a budget holiday villa (kitchen/dine/lounge, separate main bedroom, curtained off kids bunks, separate toilet and bathroom) was clean and tidy, and although pretty small was perfectly sufficient for a week with kids of 10 and 11 years.

However, the real benefit of the place is its location - just 15 mins to movie world/wet and wild/outback spectacular and 15-20 mins to sea world, dream world and the heart of surfers, but minus the hustle and bustle of being in surfers itself.

If you are after luxury accommodation and the hurly burly of surfers night life, then ashmore palms is provably not for you ... BUT if you want a quiet, family friendly place to relax of an evening after the torture that is the theme parks, then do yourself a favour and stay at ashmore palms.

P.S. The staff were all really helpful, and a special mention must go Gloria (who did the bird tours) who really did go above and beyond in answering all of Mr Eleven's bird questions and explaining to him the finer points of keeping birds.

Last November we spent a week at Ashmore Palms, This was our fourth visit to Ashmore Palms and each time we go it just gets better, We have already booked for our 5th visit this year. The display of exotic birds is fantastic, as are the childrens playground and activities.

There are 2 swimming pools that are equally as nice and the staff are so friendly,you are always made Welcome. We wouldn't stay anywhere else,as Ashmore Palms is in close proximity to all the theme parks, Surfers Paradise.and shopping centres and the Carrarea market.

Room Tip: There are several types of cabins to suit different budgets and they are all equally very good
