This place really is a hidden secret (not any more). With it’s beautifully palm surrounded pool and spa, to its tastefully furnished rooms. Every morning I woke to the sound of nature and water gently lapping the shoreline. I stayed in a delux studio unit overlooking the lake.

Booked here for its central location and access to the Gold Coast Archery club for the Pan Pacific Games. Will not be staying here again. Curtains broken. Water pressure nonexistent and the interconnecting door to my neighbour was the straw that broke the camels back. You can

Such a beautiful place to rest up and yet close to shops, beach and attractions. Our family all traveled interstate and had rooms next to each other so we were able to take full advantage of the lake, pool and spa. Great BBQ areas.

View from our second level room was amazing.
Gap between rooms so you can hear everything next door.

I have stayed at this resort on a few occasions in different rooms. This place is an older resort and some rooms need more work done on them than others. I found the beds to be comfortable,rooms clean,bathrooms were different in each room but everything worked. I found the managers more than helpful and very polite. It's not up there with the Morriet but for the price and the location it's a nice place for a holiday.. Sorry you had a bad experience...

Hi can I use my kayak on the lagoon during our stay ( in the future). Thanks Trish
Hi. We did see some canoes while we were there, so I think it won't be a problem. But please do check with Reception to get a definite answer. Thanks and enjoy!

Thank you for your question. Past guests have done a wonderful job on explaining our cleaning and servicing program. You will find that most accommodation on the Gold Coast is the same with weekly servicing except the larger chain hotels that service daily. Should you have any further questions please feel free to drop us a line. Ann Michelon (Manager) Bay of Palms Resort

Hi, are the bathrooms accessible for wheelchair users?
Thank you for your email. - Some Standard 1 bedroom apartments and studio rooms have shower curtains instead of show screens this helps with guests with mobility problems however in all showers there is 1 step into the shower - fine for some people with assistance but no good for persons unable to change from wheel chair to shower seat. Hope this helps - should you require further information please do not hesitate to contact me. Ann Michelon Manaher

"Corner rooms are quieter I was told. But personally any water views are great!"
"Relax peaceful."
"All rooms are great"
"These beds are the most uncomfortable beds I've ever tried to sleep in. Worn out springs and extremely lumpy. Choose another establishment."
"For a quiet room, ask for lake view away from the pool & reception area."
US$51 - US$165 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
