We are actually still at Palm Bay but are so outraged by the experience that I want to share the experience with other people before they consider booking.
We arrived at Palm Bay and were greeted by a miserable man who showed us to our rooms. The rooms are very VERY basic and you certainly get what you pay for. The water doesn't drain from the shower quick enough that it fills up and overflows - flooded bathroom every time you shower! The cold tap falls off every time we touch it! The cooking facilities may as well not be! The food is ok-ish but being a self catering apartment we provided breakfast and lunch ourselves by going to the shop and buying rolls etc for sandwiches. Coralli, the resort next door is amazing!! The people that own and run it and such great fun, so welcoming, and the food and cocktails are out of this world at very reasonable prices.
The people that run Palm Bay however, are a different kettle of fish! The man that works behind the bar must be afraid to smile incase his face cracks. Worst of all, the owner of Palm Bay told us to take out towels and go next door to Coralli and use their pool as his pool is for people that use his bar and facilities. The fact that we had bought a couple of drinks in his bar, spent a lot in his shop and paid to stay in his apartments didn't seem to come into it. Just because Carolli's is a lot more friendly and welcoming with much nicer food and drink and we chose to have dinner there a couple of nights and have a few drinks there, he seemed to find this offensive and told us we pay for the accomodation not the pool and that we should go and use the pool in Coralli as we use their facilities!
Totally outraged!!!! And will be making Chris;our rep, fully aware of this!!! Completely rude and unacceptable!
