I just stayed in the Palms with 3 friends (all in our late twenties). This was our second trip to Porthtowan so we were already in love the place and the apartment only exceeded our expectations.
There seems to be a fair amount of good value accommodation in Porthtowan but I reckon the Palms is unbeatable. For such a low cost, the standard of service is very high. We loved the binder of local information, especially the information on local walks, that is invaluable if you don't know the place - especially when there is no mobile reception! Also, when I text Caroline to ask her something she replied straight away.
We stayed in another Kingsley cove apartment before and the Palms is more spacious somehow, despite the identical floor plan. And very very clean! I think it is the first time I haven't washed the crockery in a rental before I used it, that's how clean everything was!
