10 Reviews on Palm Springs Resort

We booked at Palm Springs believing it to be a 3 bedroomed "luxury" property. The website stated that 1 bedroom had a double bed and 2 bedrooms had single beds. We were looking for a property that we could use to sleep in and wanted to cater for ourselves - nothing too fancy as we were not planning on spending all our time in the accommodation. As we were travelling with 3 adult couples, we thought that would be perfect for us. As it turned out 1 of the "bedrooms" had a double bunk in it - not 2 single beds. That particular bedroom was in what appeared to be the entrance to the property. There was a cupboard and the bunkbeds in the room. There was not enough space to even take out the bunk beds and put single beds in the room. Children's bunk beds are by no stretch of the imagination suitable for a 6ft man! There was not even the option of putting beds in the lounge as the glass door was not covered meaning there was no privacy in the lounge. There was 1 bathroom with a shower and toilet for 6 adults. When I went back and checked with the owner I was told that there were only 2 luxury units and the other unit was being vacated 2 days later but we could take that one - it had the rooms with the single beds. We decided to stay and take over the other unit 2 days later - only because we had no other option. I had booked here because the holiday home I usually booked was not available and there were very limited options in Kidds Beach for 6 adults self catering. We ended up leaving the following morning and booking 3 rooms in a hotel in East London. The beds sounded like they were falling apart every time anyone moved, the linen was threadbare, there were no blankets - just a light duvet on the bed - in the middle of winter. The duvet on the double bed smelt like stale sweat…. Definitely not my idea of luxury - would never go back! The apartment was clean and had a lovely view…….if you didn't mind that your neighbours from the adjoining property shared the little balcony. If that was the luxury unit I would hate to see what the other units were like!

We enjoyed every moment at the place, especially kids. Going to the sea, river boats, jumping castell etc. The environment was very calm.

We stayed at Palm Springs over the Christmas and New Year period 2013-14. We found Belinda and Jason extremely helpful, they are up front about their rules and make sure people obey them. We especially appreciated the quiet atmosphere over Christmas and New Year, as we had been at resorts in which people forgot to consider their neighbours. Palm Springs is an ideal resort if you are looking for a peaceful holiday. The close proximity to the beach enabled us to spend many hours walking on the beach and studying the rock pools. My son enjoyed the fishing in the sea and lagoon. Why not 5 stars? I found the chalet kitchen needed to be equipped with a few extra bowls, microwave and kitchen utensils. As we did not want to swim in the sea with the strong riptide or the lagoon, a swimming pool would have been ideal. Overall, we would definitely return to Palm Springs and would recommend it to our friends.

We had a very nice stay at Palm Springs. The staff were friendly and made our stay memorable. We will definitely go again.
