"A wonderful stay in a beautifully positioned property"
Before we arrived at Kamala I just knew we were going to love The Palms. Our interaction with the owner, Tony, had been seamless and he was very helpful throughout the booking process.

Thank you for your comments. We have spoken with the management of The Palms with regards to the exterior and they have taken action with the exterior, replacing furniture, carrying out maintenance and changing the usage of the pool bar.

"Excellent apartment - nice hotel!"
Stayed 6 nights at this The Palms apartment. Me and my husband travelled with our two sons (5 and 7 yrs) and had a great time. The correspondance with the owners before the trip was great, quick and informative. Our flight arrived early in the morning but we still got very early access to the apartment to get a couple of hours of sleep. The apartment is huge, clean and very nice. Washing machine a big plus when you have young kids. Pool access was also a big hit for the children. Can't say anything negative about the apartment, though the hotel staff could have been more alert... you could definitely feel that it was low season, no pool bar open, just a few sun beds out etc. Also Kamala felt a bit slow this time of the year. The waves (constant red flag) also made swimming in the sea this time of the year hard (for adults) and impossible for small children. But again, the apartment up for rent is great and we can't recommend it enough! Thanks for the stay!
Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay.You can get some reasonable waves in Kamala bay at times outside of the high season, but this isn't a daily occurance in fact during my present stay in Kamala in August the sea is as calm as the November to March period.

"Been to heaven, stayed for a week and had to leave :-("
Enquired about the property and received a reply that day. Payment made easily and safely through the website. Any questions were answered honestly and almost immediately. Then we got there! Last minute email the day before to Tony and transport from airport was arranged and confirmed with a confirmed price. Met at the airport and took 35 mins to get there. Kamala is gorgeous, it's quiet but has everything you need. Most importantly you feel safe there. The apartment is really lovely and literally across the road from the beach. It has a decently stocked kitchen and a 7-11 two minutes to the right. Beds are really comfy and the apartment is clean. We had a lot of fun pushing/accidentally falling into the pool from the balcony, it's the kids section so no worries on depth for the young ones. It was low season while we were there so we only ate in the restaurant once but the food was good and plentiful. Tuk tuks are two minutes to the right and it takes 10-15 to go into Patong. Great market, supermarket, nightlife, shopping mall all can be found at Jungceylon mall. There are two malls so walk through the first and there is a great eating area and then another mall behind. Japanese facials are 300Baht and fabulous. Directly beside the front mall is a huge out door market for all your beachy dresses etc ;-)
Altogether I heartily recommend this place from start to finish and we will definitely be back.

"Spacious apartment, beautiful beach right nearby"
It's always tricky trying to choose an apartment in a far-away location. This choice turned out just right. The Palms apartment in Kamala is a great place for a family, very roomy and clean, and good value. It was fun to just step into the pool from the apartment "porch." The beach area is beautiful and the town has a lovely Thai-village feel to it, compared to the wild and overcrowded atmosphere in Patong. At the same time, we were close enough to go to Patong for an occasional evening out (our sons liked the action there) and also were able to easily arrange outings to some of the spectacular islands off Phuket.

"Wonderfully Relaxing Holiday"
This was our first visit to Phuket but we'll definately be returning. We had a wonderful time with our teenage sons. The apartment is ideally located on the street running parallel to the beach in Kamala, just a couple of minutes easy stroll to the sea and sand. The town has all the facilities we required on the holiday with shopping and a wide variety of restuarents. Shops stocked all the basic food needs if you want to cook at the apartment, although we chose to eat most meals outside (great food and well priced). The exception was breakfast where we used the restuarant at the apartment complex, which was easy and good value.
The apartments two bedrooms are a good size, beds very comfortable and linen clean. Both bathrooms are well appointed with shower, toilet and basins in each, great for families. The apartment caters for young families with bunk beds provided in one bedroom together with a single bed. The living area is a good size with TV and DVD. As apartment is located on ground floor access is very easy and the living area opens out onto the pool.
Kamala is very clean, laid back and relatively quiet. There are plenty of transport options available to get to other beaches or attractions (we visited the go cart track, Pa Thong and took a boat tour round some of the islands).
