The Beach Club is one of those hotels that you read about in travel brochures. Everything is crisp white, palm trees, and resort-style living at it's best.
The two biggest highlights of this beautiful hotel is the beach bar in the middle of the main pool and the lagoon pool at the rear of the property. Imagine laying on a banana lounge around a beach-style pool, then casually swimming up to a Balinese-style bar, ordering some cocktails and snacks, sitting on a bar stool in the warm water, and then swimming back to your lounge. Ah, it's so tropical.
When we stayed, we were in a spa room overlooking the magnificent tranquility lagoon pool. The deep water, surrounded by tropical plants, and elegant surrounds makes you instantly relax. It's absolutely as it sounds, tranquil and completely relaxing. The fact that there is a property next door filled with rainforest trees is an added bonus as you get the sounds of the wildlife and frogs throughout the evenings, and if you are there in the wet season, everything comes to life and the sounds send you into another world.
The hotel room we had was very indulgent. A huge, comfy bed with crisp white sheets and a big comfortable doona. The balcony had a spa bath that you could lay in while soaking in the sounds of the rainforest and watch the lagoon pool below. The bathroom was polished, clean and elegant.
We stayed here after purchasing a Wotif myster deal, and we are so glad we did. We couldn't normally afford to stay at Peppers, but this was well and truly worth it. I would have liked a kitchen, as it gets pricey to eat out all the time but it wasn't really an issue as we experienced some fantastic meals.
The green tree frogs around the place were very welcome. We even found a tiny little baby one right next to the elevator. I picked him up and moved him so he didn't get stood on. They are so beautiful. There were the usual cane toads, which we didn't mind. They are pretty funny to watch with their antics.
The hotel staff were really courteous and help you with literally anything. If you want any info about tours, or where to eat, or towels, and so on, they are ready to help you. We didn't eat at Lime and Pepper as we are vegan and there wasn't a lot on the menu we thought we could eat, but I believe the would cater for most dietary requests, we didn't enquire much at the time.
We also received some massages at the in-house day spa, and it was one of the best I've ever had. The masseuse did a fantastic job and I felt relaxed and spoilt as I walked out, a great start to our holiday.
Peppers in Palm Cove is a truly indulgent hotel stay, and certainly will get you in the mood for some tropical romance. The only downfall is all the screaming kids (and sometimes parents) in the lagoon pool, which is meant to be a quiet place…but the hotel can't do much about guests behaving inconsiderately. Overall, it's the perfect hotel with a perfect location.
