Anyone looking for a relaxing, luxurious pre race venue prior to racing IRONMAN Cairns, look no further than the Alamanda. Adjacent swim start this hotel is amazing. Beautifully appointed, comfortable, relaxing and quiet. Just what you want for a no hassle pre race prep. We will be back in 2016.

My partner and I stayed here for three days, two nights. We arrived at 9am on our first day and was shown immediately to our room, which was an unexpected surprise given that the checkin time was 2pm. The Reception staff made us very welcome from the start, offering some helpful hints for our stay and organising transfers, and even... More

Location is pure perfection in a beachside village unlike any other in Australia. Pure bliss. Alamanda offers wonderful service and sublime resort surrounds. Add in the joy of a wonderful restaurant like NuNu and it makes a perfect holiday location.

From the moment we stepped into reception, we could not have asked for better service. We were welcomed with a cool fruit drink and an upgrade to a three bedroom suite. The suite (#37) had a view of the sea and a couple of balconies. The bedrooms were spacious and clean. There was a generous dining area, a well set... More

Dear Silverton31, Thank you very much for the great review. One of the advantages about coming in the slower periods of the year is the ability for us to add in a lot of free little special touches and some real down to earth personalised service above and beyond what we can normally provide. So for those like you who... More

I enjoyed staying here more than I thought I would when I originally booked. We stayed for 6 nights and I wish I could have stayed longer. The location is fantastic. It is on the end of a cute resort town. In on direction you have small local eateries and shopping. In the other direction, an endless beach with palm... More

Dear WhadaWhada, First things first, cool Trip Advisor name ;o)) Glad to see you enjoyed almost everything there is to love about the hotel and Palm Cove.

Stayed at Alamanda with family for ten days. Of many trips to Palm Cove over the years by far the best experience yet (first time at alamanda) . Accommodation, grounds, food and welcoming staff were all of highest order. Couldn't ask for more from an apartment hotel. Plenty of games, books and pool toys for kids to entertain themselves with.... More

First stay at Alamanda Resort which possibly has the best location at beautiful Palm Cove. The resort is directly located on the beach and the walk to any of the nearby restaurants follows this beach amongst towering palms and magnificent Paperbark trees. The resort itself houses one of the region's premier restaurants (Nu Nu) and has a nice day spa.... More

This hotel is in an area about 20 minutes north of Cairns. Palm Cove is literally about a half mile stretch of beach with many small low rise hotels and little beachy restaurants in-between and an RV area at the end. At the south end as you enter this area is the Alamandra. It has an outdoorsy kind of feel... More
