Wouldn't recommend
Unfortunately we feel like we got catfished on this stay. This hotel has an awesome pool area and location, with great views, but is under renovation. They do not tell you this when you book, and then say "we couldn't tell you because it was a body corporate decision". Pretty sure the work didn't just start the day we got there. The lobby area is lovely, and some rooms have been renovated, but not the one we were in. Add to that the carpet is filthy, we had a dodgy bathroom light (that had to have an electrician come in for half way through), no tv remote, a hidden fan/light remote...and then very short reception hours over the weekend to sort anything out. We were eventually offered another (renovated) room, and I called the number to organise. That was a mission in itself. In the end we couldn't move due to it getting booked because my NZ phone didn't connect somehow (we were on site by the pool which I told them but no one sought us out). Then we were offered a "return guest" discount, which I found out is offered to everyone on departure anyway. The customer service is dreadful. I feel for the poor receptionists trying to deal with it all. I spoke to other guests who had similar experiences, some who had managed to get moved. So just be warned, you may get a renovated room...or not. And if you have issues, don't expect much help. has tried to support me with this, but Royal Palm wouldn't offer us any discount etc. Will tell all our friends to stay away.

The unit had bedbugs. We were itching all week & have bites. The unit wasn’t cleaned properly. There was sand on the floor & in the shower recess quite a bit. From the moment we sat on the lounge we were itchy. It was filthy. It belongs on the tip. It was terrible. The pool area & beach is great. We left a day early because we couldn’t stay any longer with feeling itchy all the time. We complained & were told the manager would call us but we haven’t heard a word. We were so disappointed with our stay & lack of customer service. So much for covid deep cleaning. This problem needs to be addressed & they shouldn’t rent out 7B to anyone until it’s fumigated & cleaned properly. There was no picnic ware for the bbq either which is located near the pool. No breakable items near pool understandably. They should at least offer a refund for leaving early.

Great location only downfall was that the apartment wasn’t the cleanest upon check in.

6/10 Good

We stayed with another family for a week in Jan 2022. Our room was 2bed deluxe, it was very ‘lived in’, definitely needed a good clean & update items such as clothes horses (rusty & broken) light fittings full of dead bugs, loose power points in the wall, odd containers in the kitchen- some missing lids, discoloured Tupperware, small & well worn leather lounge. Don’t be fooled that this is, or similar to a serviced apartment. Rooms are not serviced, very minimal condiments such as coffee/tea. I had my kids (3 month old & a 2.5yr old), we were given a room with no bath, no air con & very slippery tiles throughout the apartment. The building also has permanent residents who always seemed very grumpy as if we were invading their home & lifestyle. HOWEVER, the pool was fantastic! The location was perfect, very close to the beach & Currumbin inlet. Great little cafe a short walk from the apartment. I did love the undercover parking although the spaces are very small & my Jeep didn’t fit in some. The room had a huge tv with all channels, foxtel, netflix & DVD player dvds. Our friends room was a 4bed apartment, much nicer and more modern than ours, it had baths & aircon, a lovely big lounge & tv. Although their doors to the balcony didn’t lock so was extremely stressful with their 3 kids (all under 7) who could easily access the balcony… not what you want when you’re on the 13th floor! Our friends said they would return, we probably wouldn’t.

Can’t wait to return
We stayed in the most amazing three bedroom apartment. Ideal for a large family but I’d also love to come back and stay with friends. The beachfront location is perfect with beautiful views and walking distance to a great park, cafes and Coles.
