Ashmore Palms was a not a huge disappointment because I wasn't expecting very much - lucky!
When we arrived quite late at night due to a flight delay - we were welcomed by an army of ants crawling up the wall and inside the bed of my 11 yr olds room (11 yr old girl vs ants galore = drama!)
After spending 20 minutes stripping the bed and making sure ever last ant was gone we settled into very dated yet clean cabins.
In the morning we went for a walk around the park to be met with more dated views a smelly bird cage area with mice zipping about - but it was the smell I found most offensive.
To make this a bit shorter.
1. Park is at the end of the road in an industrial zone
2.There are NO restaurants within walking distance
3. Very dated and not a great deal for the children to do , other than swim in the pool. Children were not at all interested in the activities.
When it came to check out - at 10.05am there is a knock at the door to hurry us out (and they had already asked my 11 yr old if we were almost leaving when she went to the shop) I would expect that given we had to look after pest control issues upon arrival they would have been somewhat lenient.
Would I stay there again? No
But I am sure it would be acceptable for someone on a different budget.
