We were very pleased with our rooms (2 couples) at the motel/resort. They were quite large rooms and the table and chairs outside each was appreciated. There is a lovely pool which we were happy to use as the beach is quite a fair walk away. Hosts were very pleasant. We had an enjoyable night. Would recommend.

Stayed at resort for 3 nights and had a great time. Great facilities and location. Situated in the heart of the town it was an easy walk into town and centrally located. Kids loved the tennis court, Spa and pools. Only minor niggle was placement of car parks when situated in an upstairs room. Bit of a walk but not... More

This is an ideal place to stay with children. Easy short walk to town, nice two bedroom units, spacious and clean. The resort has a big swimming pool (2 meters deep), spa pool, tennis court and pétanque court. Lots of ways to keep children occupied. Leave the car at the resort and walk everywhere!

We have been moteliers ourselves for quite some time,, and Palm Pacific was lovely. Everything was spotlessly maintained, very well furnished, and up tp date. Hosts were very friendly, and helpful. We were in the town for the "Brits at the Beach" car show, and felt the car was quite secure. A lovely place to stay... highly recommend it.

On a one-night visit to the town, the two-room apartment was well appointed and spotlessly clean. not the cheapest but well worth the money, and located right in the middle of town for meals, viewing and going to the beach and pier. Great little town.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. All our laundry is done onsite and the towels are washed daily by our efficient staff that have been here for many years. So we are at a bit of a loss as to why your towels would have an unpleasant smell. Only that they were brand new but were washed before... More
