“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Stayed here for 5 nights at the end of March for a wedding we were attending at the resort . Loved every minute we spent here. The rooms were fantastic , the pools and surrounds were amazing. The wedding was very nice down on the beach just across the bridge at the back of the resort. My daughter loved the free WiFi. Two negatives , a couple of staff were a little rude, but the positives definitely outweight the negatives . The wedding we were attending was actualy on the same date as our own wedding anniversary so were thinking we loved this place so much we would like to come back at the same time next year for our anniversary.
Thanks again for a fantastic play everyone.

Pullman Sea Temple Resort and Spa in Palm Cove was a beautiful resort offering the perfect setting for a mini holiday.

The resort was easy to locate when driving into Palm Cove and its location off the esplanade created the feeling of seclusion. The foyer was very grand with a view of the lagoon pool, bar and private resort beach access. We were greeted by professional and helpful staff.

Our room was tidy on arrival with a view of the tropical rainforest. There was a smell of dampness when we first entered however did not impact on the impression of the room. The bathroom was a good size with a large spa bath and shower with extremely strong water pressure.

The restaurant at the resort was 10/10 and highly recommended. We thoroughly enjoyed our main meal, delicious dessert and selection of wines and cocktails. The lagoon bar at the resort offers a nice atmosphere however the cocktail was not prepared properly and there were far better places to drink along the esplanade.

On a side note, the resort and Palm Cove as a holiday destination is extremely child friendly. Although beautiful and relaxing, as a couple with no kids looking to escape the noise of the big city, we did find the constant screams of children at the pool and in cafes/restaurants to be annoying.

Room Tip: Although it was beautiful to wake up to the view of the tropical rainforest, I would suggest booking...

From the moment you walk into the reception area you know you are in a high end resort. We were met with friendly staff while checking in and also offered a refresher towel to help cool us down. As we were early we decided to have a drink at the lagoon bar while we wait for our room. The staff member behind the bar was very friendly and helpful when asked a question. To our surprise we got a phone call almost two hours before normal check in time to say our room was ready. When walking into our room both my husband and I said "Wow". We were lucky enough to stay in the one bedroom penthouse spa apartment with all the luxuries of home (dishwasher, stove, oven, microwave, washing machine, dryer, king bed & spa/shower) the major selling point of this apartment it the HUGE upstairs terrace equipped with sun loungers, BBQ, dining table and 4 person spa. Yep and you get all this luxury all to yourself. Awesome time spent relaxing at this beautiful resort, you must stay here yourself to experience all these spoils.

Dear Princess260812,

I’m pleased to hear that you received such a wonderful welcome from our reception staff upon your arrival. Our cool Oshi buri towels are very popular upon Check In. I’m very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us in one of our Penthouse Apartments. It’s a very relaxing experience to spend time in your own private rooftop & enjoy your own personal spa.

Princess260812, thank you again for your kind words, we hope to welcome you back again to the Resort in the future

Kind Regards

This Hotel is good, definitely not 5 star, maybe when it first opened but it looks tired & un kept now. Furniture in rooms very worn & ours was uncomfortable... On the positive staff very friendly & helpful although our request could not be met at least they tried.

The resort is off the main drag, which is something you either like or not, I feel there were better options on the seafront with same or better facilities.

Rooms clean & good size (we stayed in a 2brm)...main gripe, when you sit on the balcony you can only see tops of trees as the balcony wall is so high, other rooms had glass or railings which would be much nicer.

We stayed for 4 nights with a 6 yr old & he loved the pool.

Overall not a bad stay but could have been better, next time would try Peppers or the Mantra as they are on beachfront.

Room Tip: Ask for room with glass or railings on balcony.

My family of 4 (2 adults, 5yr old & 7yr old) have just returned from a wonderful stay at Pullman Palm Cove. The pools are fantastic, apartments are superb, the restaurant is lovely as are each and every staff member we encountered. We were there during Cyclone Ita and were extremely impressed with their communication and care of us during this time. After the storm had passed the staff worked tirelessly to get the pools and grounds back up and running within a few hours for which we are very thankful. We could not fault this resort and have only wonderful things to say about it, so much so we are already looking forward to our next trip up there! Thank you Pullman Palm Cove.

Dear kathygriffin 73,

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments regarding your recent stay.

I’m pleased to hear that you enjoyed your apartment & our facilities. I’ll be very happy to pass along your positive comments to all our staff regarding the care they took of you & your family during Ita’s stormy weather. We were all very thankful that when she passed through she only caused only some disrupted tree debris & some wet & windy days.

Thank you again for all your kind words, we look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Palm Cove.

Kind Regards
