The Sanctuary apartment was amazing, very spacious (2 adults and 2 young children.) The apartments are very private and great balconies. The pool was fantastic for the family and would suit a family with young or older kids. The apartments are self contained so all the amenities you need and more. Jane & Scott where great and booked a trip... More

My extended family of 9 (including 4 adults, 4 young children and 1 grandparent!) recently stayed at Sanctuary and loved absolutely every minute of it. We rented a 2 bedroom unit & a 3 bedroom unit. The apartments were beautiful with everything a family could want. The kitchen was stocked with utensils and cookware better than any other apartment we've... More

Sanctuary accommodations are in beautiful modern apartment blocks on the other side of a large lily pond, from the attractive swimming pool and entrance. The grounds are equally beautiful with mature palm trees. Unfortunately our one bedroom apartment 'The Retreat' was on the swimming pool deck. We found it dark, with rather 'tired' furnishings. A piece of colourful artwork on... More

The reviews of Sanctuary Palm Cove are spot on - it's a fantastic place to stay. The accommodation is spacious, beautifully furnished and extremely well equipped. The staff are helpful, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We arrived hours earlier than we were meant to and they had our room ready within minutes. The grounds are beautiful and the... More

What an amazing find : everything is provided ; the apartment is huge. We booked 7 nights but wished we could stay for ever . No expense spared - even the drinking glasses are of good quality. The living/dining area could easily cater for a family of six and the bifold doors open the dining area on two sides to... More

We stayed at Sanctuqry as 2 couples for 4 nights over the New Year period. Our apartment was amazing, provided a lovely view of the lagoon plus the New Years fire works. Our 2 bed apartment was spacious, a great sized kitchen and dining area not to mention the timber bi-fold doors that allowed us to capture the breeze. The... More

This is one of those places that as soon as you enter, your mouth drops open in amazement and you think "wow I never want to leave here". It's perfection! The website does not do this place justice at all. Huge apartment with great modern design and all the luxury comforts of home. Big kitchen and pantry. Great aircon which... More

We stayed at Sanctuary for 10 nights in November, having found it on Tripadvisor! We had a two bedroom/ two bathroom apartment on the third floor. Absolutely stunning! We felt like we were in the treetops! The bifold doors opened up with louvre windows, bringing the outside in!! Insect screens on everything too. The apartment was more than we expected,... More

We stayed for a little over a week here and it was a great place to stay. The apartment was large, very well equipped and had a very relaxing atmosphere. We felt it was a great value for the money. It was a few steps to the beach and the main walkway to restaurants, etc. The pool was nice but... More
