Stayed at the hotel for two nights then five nights in one of the timeshare apartments. Great location on the sea front, breakfast in the hotel was excellent. Hotel room was spacious and modern with small basic cooking area. Timeshare apartment was also spacious and beds extremely comfortable, but the apartment was slightly dated. Nothing crucial but small windows so...

He told us he had worked there for 25 years. A good recommendation. Our room was on the 3rd floor of the round building directly...

The Palms hotel & apartment was very good. Our 2 bed apartment was very clean, with excellent views / location. The room servicing was excellent. The apartment is getting a bit tired and needs to be refurbished. We would defiantly return and stay at the Palms again

We have stayed at the Palms before but this time we were there for 3 weeks. We did not have to change rooms as we thought we might, as it was a last minute booking. We decided to have more meals in the restaurant as the variety was wonderful. I can't eat a lot so the buffet was perfect. The...
