We had not been to Far north Queensland for 16 years when the children were travelling with us. Now aging travellers we were looking for somewhere closer to Sydney and what a pleasing choice this apartment complex was. The apartment was quiet and spacious. It overlooked the lagoon and was super. The managers were knowledgeable of local attractions and made...

Spent Christmas at Sanctuary - flew in from Melbourne to a most welcome tropical climate. Neat, clean, well organised airport and car pickup was a breeze. Short trip from airport to Cairns on a highway you will become very used to. Arrival was something special. Richard and Karin were friendly, open, direct and funny. The apartment was beautiful and the...

A family vacation and first time in QLD. The Sanctuary location is perfect, just off the north end of main beachfront esplanade, private and quiet yet close to everything, only a few minute walk to the bus stop for local transportation access to Cairns. We didn't hire a car, using public transit and arranged transfers for activities worked great. The...

This is my 2nd review of this wonderful Hotel, the first was a few years ago. Surprisingly the Sanctuary has not aged at all, only become better. I didnt realise just how massive the 3 bedroom apartment actually is. After a few overseas trips in very small rooms, this place feels like home. Everything was so clean and everything worked....

This is one of the best places we have stayed in. The hotel grounds are beautiful and idyllic. Set back from the main stretch they are secluded and provide a true sanctuary for people looking to unwind and relax yet still only a short walk to the beach and restaurants. The apartment had all the amenities you could ask for...

Such friendly staff. Amazing pool. Could spend all day there and not feel guilty. Very spacious rooms. Very quiet and private but only 1 minute away from the main shops. Lots of information provided on activities to do at reception.

I have just spent 5 nights in a 3 bedroom apartment (17) with my husband, son (12) & mum (80). The apartment was so spacious with the most beautiful outlook and we lacked for nothing in regard to inclusions. The pool is absolutely fabulous and even during a busy period (NYE) felt wonderfully private. Palm Cove itself is so beautiful...

Excellent Property at the North end of the strip with large apartments. Full kitchen, laundry, and bedrooms can be unlocked to suit. Comfortable walking distance to restaurants. Fully air conditioned and large open span bifold doors onto balcony and louvers. Fantastic large salt water pool which was perfect temperature - not cold to get into but still refreshing. Highly recommend...
