Wouldn't suggest a family w chn book the only 3 bedroom in the complex. The 3rd bedroom is separate and across a courtyard. You can't hear if your children need you! On check-in we found air-conditioning not working in one of the kids' bedrooms. They were not able to replace it during our 5 night stay so that bedroom could not be slept in for the whole time. Kids slept in bed with us instead, which totally defeated the whole reason for booking this hotel and paying premium when we should've stayed down the road at a more comfortable and less expensive hotel! So disappointed. The owner of apartment would only authorise receptionist to compensate us a measly $80 (from accomm cost of $1480) despite us having to chase up every day about the aircon, and having to put up with kids sharing our bed during the holiday. Seriously, look elsewhere everyone. So many other great options at Palm Cove for you to consider. You might expect a dishwasher in a 'family' apartment with a 'self-contained' kitchen. NOPE. You might also expect your own laundry with washer and dryer for the price. NOPE. You pay to use the communal facilities downstairs! Tiling and garden all unkempt around the 'spa area'. Didn't see one person use it the whole time we were there. Or the BBQ. Not really family friendly pool as the restaurant patrons at front of property have prime view of everyone sunbaking and kids playing in pool. A bit eek...

Thank you "Disappointed" for your review, we are disappointed too that you really haven't told this how it really was. When you checked in, reception did tell you about the split room configuration with our 3 bedroom apartment and you said "that would be fine" reception did ask you the next day about the same thing and you said it was great the kids loved it and it was safe as no-one else could access that area. You were kept up to date constantly about the Air Conditioner issue (you DID NOT have to keep on asking) , we got it working that same day you told us in reception, however overnight it wouldn't work again, we did get the Air Cond Man in the next day and he told us it needed a new Air Cond, unfortunately the Air Cond had to come from Melb, we did offer to shift you to a 2 bedroom Apartment but you said no. $80 compensation was all the owner thought was necessary as the Electric ceiling fan in that room is very sufficient and cooling. Thanks for staying with us.

We thought the staff was very helpful but we were upstairs when we thought we had down stairs accommodation which we found very difficult.

Thank you Roger for your review. Unfortunately when you booked there was no mention to us on the booking form about you wanting a ground floor Apartment. When you checked in and you mentioned a ground floor apartment I did explain that we only have 2 x 2 bedroom apartments on the ground floor and they were both occupied. Thanks for staying with us and hope you will stay again soon, If you do decide to stay again please request on your booking form for Ground Floor Apartment.... Management

Palm Cove

Pros: The central location of this property was fabulous. Opposite the beach and in the middle of the shops and eateries.
We spent a relaxing 3 days in Palm Cove. The weather was sunny but the wind kept the temperature pleasant. We loved the paperbark tree lined streets and the shopping. It felt quiet and very safe. The adjoining apartments worked well and both bedrooms were king sized. We enjoyed our stay and would happily book this property again.

Lack privacy with folding ‘Glass doors main b’room

Booked ground level due to serious physical injury Given 3rd floor with no warning. 3 of our 4 group tripped or stubbed toes on very small step into bathrooms. One Jarred her toes resulted in pain for holiday My husband tripped on stair causing recent scar on nose (excision skin cancer 5 weeks ago) to bleed. When reported to receptionist no interest shown. We have recently lost our dear daughter and this holiday was to help us heal even a little. The position of accommodation was ideal. Rooms comfortable. But main room near kitchen lacked privacy due to only folding glass door. Especially as central to dining/kitchen area. Accommodation comfortable and clean.

Thank you Lyn for your review. We are pleased to read that the apartment was comfortable for you all. Unfortunately a request of a ground floor is never guaranteed as we only have 2 x 2 bedroom apartment on that level and they were already booked. When you reported to me at reception about the small lip going into the bathroom causing a few toe stubbs, that is totally wrong that I showed no interest I was very sympathetic to the injuries but unfortunately that very small lip into the bathroom is there for a reason and has been there for 18yrs and there is nothing we can do about it. As the 2nd bedroom has its own entry away from the main apartment having the folding glass door separating the bedroom from the main area has always been sufficient and we have never had a complaint at all about this. We are very sorry to hear about the lose of your daughter and we wish you all the best in the future.

A fairly old room, which had not been properly cleaned before we checked in (a spare key lying on the floor, half eaten biscuits sitting on the balcony). The pool was lovely and the staff were excellent - but the room did not live up to expectations.

Thank you Anonymous for your review, we are shocked at your mention of the apartment not being clean when you checked in, we cant understand why you would not have come straight down to reception and complain straightaway we know we would of!!!! if guests don't mention these things to us and then make a review as Anonymous then we cant even offer an apology in person or look up what cleaner actually did the clean. Our apartments are normally cleaned to a VERY HIGH standard and checked before check-in so really cant believe how this would of been missed.
