“great property in a great spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

this property has recently changed hands and is now known as "Alamanda Palm Cove." It is a really pleasant place to stay and you can walk to everything in the village.The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are more like suites and very comfortable. The grounds are very lush and tropical plants are everywhere.The restaurant is being renovated but the hotel is connected to a great little cafe called "The Rising Sun" which is also great and staffed by very friendly staff.Would recommend both the hotel and their affiliated restaurant to anyone visiting this most incredible tropical paradise.

Photos definitely do not do this place any justice. You really have to experience it for yourself. There was not one thing that we didn't enjoy about Angsana. The staff were very friendly, rooms were very modern and spacious (we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite), and having immediate access to the beach was fantastic. Sunbaking by the beach pool was fabulous, it actually felt like we were in a movie. I loved Angsana so much and feel that people like to fuss over tiny details that they find negative which is why Angsana probably isn't getting the recognition that it deserves. However, I could not find anything negative about the place and would love to go there again. The pricing was also extremely reasonable and we definitely got more than what we paid for. I 100% recommend it to anyone going to Palm Cove! (I also recommend staying in Palm Cove over Cairns)

Room Tip: Definitely choose a Beach/Pool suite if you have the money :)
