We stayed 6 nights at Reef Palms having read good reviews. So glad we did, it was perfect for us. Having so much space, and cupboard space as well is great, the wardrobes have full length mirrored doors. The kitchen in the room has everything that could be required.
All linen was white, sheets crisp and clean, there are continental quilts in some drawers if required, and cotton blankets in the top of the wardrobe. Pillows and beds so comfortable. There are overhead fans plus efficient reverse cycle ac.
Even the ground floor rooms have a glass sliding door to a veranda or "balcony" where there are chairs and a table. There is a larger table and more chairs inside the room. Next to our room 205 balcony were tropical plants including tall palms trees which gave us privacy and extra shade. Then there were two fences between there and the street, we could just see the "comings and goings" when sitting outside if we wished to without being in view ourselves. We were just lucky in getting that room, so close and convenient to the office on one side, and to the pool and lovely BBQ area on the other, yet were in the middle room of the 3 there. It would be the quietest of those, but one can still hear the trickle of the little "stream" of water over the rocks at one end of the pool when sitting outside the room which was nice.
There were three rooms on the opposite side of the corridor which would be even quieter not being street side, but we did notice the view was not quite as good. We also noticed ground floor rooms facing the street on the other side of the the building and office, which did not have the same amount of privacy if sitting outside.
We didn't look upstairs, but no doubt they are great,but for us being older, not having to carry luggage up stairs was an advantage as there is no lift.
At night it is very quiet.
The free shuttles are wonderful, the staff can't do enough to help with anything. For the first few days we had Fabian and Debby in the office before Geoff and Lyn returned from holidays. All were such lovely people.
If you use the BBQ, and inform the staff that you wish to, it is amazing the equipment they supply for that ,we have never come across that before.
You can walk along the Esplanade into town and maybe get a bus back, or visa versa, the bus stop is on Sheridan Street one street back. That is a busy road at peak hour when you certainly need to cross at the lights then.
Reef Palms is fantastic value all up, and convenient base for any trips whether you are using own transport, or are being picked up from the hotel which we were.
