We loved the Palms!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well kept. Our room was super nice and we enjoyed the pool almost every night! The beach shuttle was a little hard to navigate, but it was easier just to drive to beach anyway. Staff were also great! No complaints!

Some issues need attention...overall good family place

  • 3 of 5

The front office staff are short with the guest. The living room TV did not work and maintance never showed up to fix the problem. The living room balcony door was almost impossible to open. That was also brought to maint. attn. but was not fixed. No security in the pool area at night or in the parking lot. The guard that is there is there only in the daylight to let cars come in but anyone can come in at night bc the guard is not there to supervise. The dryer did not work good. The pool and hot tub weren't very clean.

Average stay for money

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for a place just to get out of the sun then this place may be for you but if you have a family and will spend more time in the room then maybe look elsewhere. The pictures don't show the condition the room is actually in. The king bed is like a rock and not very comfortable at all. The twin bedroom has no extra space in there at all and that is also where the washer and dryer is at so you can't have your kids in bed and do some laundry. The carpet is stained and disgusting as well as the living room couch. We had to put a sheet over it just to sit on it. The tv in the twin room didn't work either. Then there is the building which you can tell is very old. The elevators are small and as soon as you walk off the elevator the towers smell terrible. Our floor smelled so bad just walking to the room made you nauseous. And they tried to cover it with spray and that just made it worse. Like I said if you just need a basic roof over your head for a decent price then this could be it but if you have a family and want a clean place to come home to this might not be it. We were rather disappointed and won't book it again in the future.

This is a very clean condo. The pool was awesome. Very big and didn't have to worry about being on top of one another. Staff was very friendly. Bus service to the beach was on time for drop off and pick up. I would stay there again
