Jim McNeilly

Lovely beach hotel on the foreshore at Palm Cove. Great staff, excellent restaurant, beach themed rooms with great balconies. Great facilities including spa treatments and a daily get together at the outdoor bar allows you to meet other guests. A thoroughly relaxing feeling throughout the hotel. Loved it!


Stephen Green

We are currently 6 nights into a 7 night stay, and we couldn't be happier! The staff are fantastic, the hotel has a great relaxed vibe to it and everything is on our doorstep. Our room is spacious and clear, with a great facilities - jucuzzi on our massive balcony, big screen TV, comfy King Bed. The bar / library area is a nice place to have a drink before dinner and the pools are perfect - clean, quiet and the flowing water elements really do make you relax when you are lying around. Could not be happier with our stay and sad to be going!
