“Christmas in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We've just spent a thoroughly good and relaxing Christmas at Villa Paradiso. Our apartment was spacious and clean with a huge breezy balcony overlooking the beach. We had all of our meals there. The kitchen had everything and most of the appliances seemed new. The pool was well maintained and cool and the gardens were immaculate.That's the bare bones but the fact is that it was very welcoming and comfortable and managers Eva and David were inconspicuous but always on hand if you needed anything.

Room Tip: Try for an apartment overlooking the beach.

We have been staying at the Villa since the 1990s and there's no better value for money on the esplanade. Conveniently located in the heart of Palm Cove, we have consistently been impressed with the quality, comfort and facilities in these apartments, all of which offer a spacious balcony with views overlooking the Coral Sea. Eva and Dave provide the level of service and support we look for in a relaxing family holiday in the tropics, and always at very competitive pricing. There's no better value on the strip!

Room Tip: All rooms provide the same standards and sea views.

They call it Beachview Apartments and it was! with a huge balcony to view from and close to the patrolled part of the beach. Our holiday was peacefull and refresshing even though the outdoor temperatures were higher than expected, a gentle sea breeze and a bit of shade made it thoroughly enjoyable. Breakfasts were on the balcony and very often so was dinner - everything was just so right for a family holiday and being at the beach in the middle of Palm Cove set the perfect basis of the holiday.

Stylish, spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable - everything as it says in the broschure except the Internet doesn't work properly: email was just about possible, but no google maps, no booking excursions, no looking at photos of surroundings. On a foreign trip, as far from anywhere as Palm Cove, that's a serious drawback. And at £ 200/night, I expect the accommodation to deliver what's in the broschure.

Dave J, Manager at BeachView Apartments at Villa Paradiso, responded to this review, November 15, 2012
Chris and her 3 companions stayed for two nights for the Solar Eclipse in a large, elevated, 2-bedroom 2- bathroom apartment with commanding views over the beach a few metres away, and all were able to view the eclipse from the comfort of their own private balcony. Perfect. Sorry if the local ISP companies did not provide unlimited internet capacity during that time.

While we offer free Wifi access via our new ADSL2+ service, it was unfortunate that Chris chose the absolute busiest day for internet service in the entire history of Palm Cove to belatedly plan her onward journey to Mission Beach, competing with thousands and thousands of visitors for limited local internet capacity slowed to a crawl by massive demand. It was a network problem completely outside our control and was over by the time of departure early on the morning of the 15th. Clearly technology is not always the answer to everything.

A comprehensive tour booking service, local advice, and maps of Mission Beach and other areas of interest continue to be available from the tour desk at reception.

Sincerely, Dave

We had an absolutely amazing time staying in this lovely beachside apartment. Dave looked after us exceptionally well and went above and beyond the call of duty to make our trip the other side of the world so wonderful. We would highly recommend staying here. The apartment was absolutely enormous with everything you could possible need. Palm Cove is a lovely quiet place and an ideal location for the reef and Daintree Rainforest. We would definitely stay with them again, if the opportunity to travel again from London arose. Thank you very much to Dave and Eva.

This is a well managed facility. The public areas and gardens are bright and welcoming and the large well equipped and squeaky clean unit allowed us to entertain and self cater with ease. Our balcony was just 50 meters from the gentle lapping waves of the Coral Sea - we were here 10 days and could never tire of the view.
Not having a restaurant attached is an asset as Palm Cove caters for a lot of weddings and parties and can be noisy into the night. Villa Paradiso is a quiet place.
We have previusly stayed in top class accommodation in Palm Cove and certainly will return to this lovely facility. Good underground free parking
Eva is an ideal host- helpful when needed while respecting ones privacy.

Room Tip: We stayed on floor 1 and friends on 2 both were great.

Absolutely beachfront, with views over the beach and out to sea - it was all that they promised plus more. The rich coloured gardens were complemented by well kept lawns, and add to that the spectacular ancient Melaleuca trees in the front yard and we had a unique and memorable outlook. Had a huge and well appointed with a lovely tropical feel, well itted out, and spotlessly clean. Peaceful yet so close to the beach, shops, and restaurants we wished we had stayed longer.
