“Relaxing Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

1 bedroom unit was large and spacious with 2 bathrooms. The tone of the building reflects the recently completed high quality refurbishment. All staff were very obliging and gave the appearance of very happy employees. Nothing was too much trouble. Enjoyed or staff immensely.

This place was perfect! We had a suite overlooking the beach. Clean, comfortable, luxurious! So nice to have a kitchen and laundry. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, every single time I went in the the reception. Loved the setting and the quiet. Just perfect!

We booked this hotel because it was beach front and we needed accommodation for 5 people. Senior, 2 adults and 2 children - 8 and 10yrs.
I was worried that it would be cramped but what a lovely surprise, big spacious, well ventilated and with every thing a family could need. Up market appliances and enough crockery to fill a dishwasher and still have lots left over. Room serviced each day by friendly staff and great choice of swimming options (heated pool too)! Everyone helpful and friendly. I'm now looking for another winter escape this year at the same place!!

Room Tip: Ground floor was great, overlooking the pool. Easy for large family with lots of luggage!

Just returned from 7days at Alamanda Palm Cove. What a wonderful place, and a wonderful week. The resort is perfectly located, right on the beach (the only one in Palm Cove) right down one end of the beach. It has three lovely pools, although the unheated ones were a bit chilly. The vibe is very relaxed and tropical. Great gardens, and lovely setting.

The apartment was spacious (we had a 3 bedroom). Well appointed kitchen with plenty of plates etc. Cooktop, oven fridge etc all full size, so easy to cook for yourself. Warning: make sure you cook for yourself before you eat at NuNu which is the restaurant on site - once you eat there, you will want to go for every meal.

Bed very comfortable and at the back of the property so very quiet. Excellent bathrooms and nice cosmetics.

The staff are extremely helpful and obliging, and the reception had movies to borrow and lots of helpful information. There are books to read, and lovely little wedding chapel.

The only downside was the slow and intermittent internet connection. I think they are still working on it.

Make sure you have at least one breakfast, lunch and dinner at NuNu. It is right on the beach, and the food is sensational. Had the best lunch ever, in the sun, with little tasting plates, and couple of glasses of wine. Perfect day made it the best. We even received a complimentary plate because they had run out of the salad we ordered.

There are also plenty of other places to eat in PC, in easy walk. We also paddled kayaks around the island, and went for a couple of drives in the hinterland, but mainly read, slept, walked and rejuvenated before facing the wintry blast of Melbourne in July.

Highly recommended.

I got married here last August was a really good experience.
The hotel staff were spot on, we had 90% of the guests stay here and everyone really enjoyed the stay.
Rooms were amazing. Huge big apartments, plenty of room to cook, sit and host little get togethers.

The only thing that was missing was a big bbq area near the pool. Went to visit my Uncle in the hotel just behind and they had an outdoor bbq area with a pool which could be accessed all night.

The restaurant at the time was awesome. Really nice food no complaints.

Would definitely stay again

We booked the night before and got a great deal (half price). I think we were upgraded too when we were there, getting an apartment with two bedrooms.

The room was huge. I think our house could have fit in it (sure we have a small house, but really, it would have). Everything about the room (the two bathrooms, walk in robe, balcony, lounge, kitchen) were perfect.

It would be a fantastic place for families, or perhaps a couple of couples.

We had a swim in the heated pool and spa. Loved the waterfall. There was a private function (wedding?) at NuNu so couldn't try the restaurant, we went there for breakfast though and it was great.

Would love to stay there again but I'm not sure we'd pay full price just for ourselves.

All the reviews already written are true to their word! Exceptional service and standards made our entire stay a wonderful experience. Right from the very start when we were offered a cool drink at reception whilst checking in, and having Gary (or Greg - sorry I can't quite remember his name) help us to our room with our bags, we knew we had chosen the right place to stay! Room was exceptional overlooking the pool, clean, fresh, bright. What a bonus for us to have a bathroom each in a one bedroom unit. And as a previous guest has noted, exquisite Australian made toiletries were very much appreciated. I can only sing your accolades Alamanda. And the girls at reception are gorgeous too, always happy to help.
Thank you and we will visit again - without a doubt!
