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....

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...
