                Close to beach

                No hotel restaurant. No 24hr reception. Lounge furniture was dirty and marked. Kitchen equipment was a bit lacking. Not serviced daily

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                The hotel is very centrally located within the palm cove village and access to captain cook highway for touring is very convenient. The swimming pool was quite large and one can have a good swim. The pool was not crowded as some thought the water was cold.

                We experienced a lot of noise due to pool deck maintenance. One had to endure daily pressure blasting and blower noises which spoilt our stay. Guests should be advised prior to booking of noisy activities and or room rates adjusted accordingly.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                lobby ambience, location to restaurants and shops, pool (albeit water was quite chilly!) , day bed in room

                the couch in room was stained, we had to ask for clean towels after 2 of a 4 day stay (it would have been nice if they had been offered), young ladies on front desk were a little immature especially handling my partners query as to how long it would be before our room to be avail/ready when he arrived at 11.30am - he kept being told 1/2 hr but it ended up being closer to 2.5 hrs - they shouldn't have kept saying 1/2 hr more.. it just frustrated him, especially when they showed no empathy (which is why we felt they were somewhat immature).

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Very helpful staff including Jane at head office who organised our accommodation and also front desk staff who were helpful and knowledgeable about trips and places to visit

                accommodation was basically very good excellent layout and everything you need but felt the couch, chairs and carpets were in need of a good clean which really let accommodation down

                Friendly helpful staff great rooms with all facilities light and airy Great pool area
