The young waitresses provide friendly, courteous and excellent service. Awesome food coffee at the pool pavilion. The older middle aged woman who sometimes serves is always grumpy and one star. A big contrast to the girls. The girls are five star!

We stayed here in Jan 2023 for 5 nights as part of a wider trip to Australia. We really enjoyed staying here, the hotel staff were friendly and welcoming with good facilities. We stayed on a room only basis and ate at local eateries during our stay, so can't comment on the food. However, the bar service was excellent with great cocktails, including a cocktail of the day. Pool area was quite busy, but as this is tropical Queensland the majority of people do use the pool as the beach is not suitable for swimming due to the crocs and jelly fish. Shops, restaurants etc are all in easy walking distance. Good place to stay.

The resort is not only secluded and quiet, it was also the best time to travel there during the off season. The happy hour cocktails daily made my friend and I excited to see what the cocktail of the day was. Our favourite was the Tim Tam cocktail. The resort is right near the lovely and luxe Palm Cove retail complex as well as some lovely restaurants neaby. Temple of Tastes had great food, but it was a bit of an inconvenience not being able to sit outside while we ate our dinner. Just a minor inconvenience so not a big deal. Special mention goes to Tahnee- the pool bartender- she is super chill, nice and friendly. Loved the pool- loved the vibe- overall, a very luxe place.

We have stayed at the Palm Cove Sea Temple probably 10 times in the last three months on each visit has been a real holiday experience, which may sound strange when I tell you that we actually locals and live within six kilometers of this property. I have pursued platinum status basically because of 5 properties in the Cairns area, which I considered to be top quality and value for money, which the Palm cove Sea temple features at the top of the list The sea temple Palm Cove has some wonderful apartments which overlook the pool area , my favourite Being, so far is the double bedroom apartment in the corner of each building that are very spacious and have great amenities.these are displayed in most of my my photographs. The management of Megan, the general manager, and Steve who.i believes is the assitant manager seem to be on top of their game with great support from Miranda in housekeeping and kirstin the head of hospitality, who is a lovely enthusiastic person..the front desk has some..lovely welcoming people such as Natalie and katsumi but all the staff seem to.give their best. who I've got to know well over the last 10 visits . The room I have photographed is one of the best that i have ever been allocated,at the sea temple , although some guests dont like the apartment because the roof of the temple of taste's is in the view. But to be honest and I would stay once a .week if this was a normal upgrade I will end by saying it's a wonderful location to the south of Palm Cove with full beach access and still very close to the action of Palm Cove. This Sea Temple has exceptional service from enthusiastic employees, and the Temple of Taste Restaurant is highly rated by us locals. Give it a try. You should not be disappointed

We stayed over the October long weekend which was just fantastic. Staff welcomed us warmly on arrival and said hello every time with a smile. Room was a penthouse which was fantastic with lounges, bbq and spa which made the stay even better. The pool was busy being school holidays but we all had a great time. Food was good and tasty. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Kazumi and Natalie at the front desk made the whole experience of our trip outstanding!!! These ladies are an absolute asset to this resort. Everything was so good. Clean pool. Plenty of sun chairs. Lagoon bar food and drinks were very impressive. Alain at the lagoon bar was so attentive and lovely. I would definitely come back here again. My family and I had a wonderful time! The only thing I found weird was the kitchen closes at 8:30pm but when I walked around and went to other restaurants outside of the resort, I realised it’s the same thing all over Palm Cove.

Dear N7862LXlindas, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful experience at Pullman Palm Cove. We are absolutely thrilled to hear that you had an excellent stay with us and that our team members, Kazumi and Natalie, at the front desk, left such a positive impression on you. They are indeed valuable assets to our resort, and we will make sure to pass along your compliments. It's great to know that you enjoyed our clean pool, ample sun chairs, and the impressive offerings at our Lagoon Bar. We're particularly delighted that Alain's attentive and friendly service made your experience even more enjoyable. We appreciate your feedback about the kitchen's closing time at 8:30pm. While this may seem early, it's true that dining hours in Palm Cove can vary, and many establishments in the area have similar schedules. However, we are always looking for ways to enhance our guests' experience, and your feedback will be considered as we continually improve our offerings. We are grateful for your kind words and are thrilled to hear that you would choose to return to our resort.

The room is nice. Quite spacious with enough space for a family of four. There is a barbecue grill and kitchen as well as dishes and cooking utensils. But the service and hospitality is poor. The worst experience I've ever made! There is one restaurant that is always fully booked, but still has tables and chairs available. You have to please them to make up a table for you, very uncomfortable for a five star hotel! Then they have a lagoon bar that offers foods and drinks. First day 29. Dec there was a wedding, so the lagoon bar was closed for hotel guests. Food can be ordered to room, because restaurant is fully booked. We asked if there is a celebration for New Year's Eve, but concierge told us it was cancelled because no people were interested in. On 31. Dec they closed lagoon bar again for hotel guest because suddenly they had a New Year's Eve party, but not for us. On January 1st there was no room service.... Check out was the same unfriendly treatment as during check-in... If you don't mind to spent your holidays like a tenant it's a great place. As a hotel guest better try another one. We will not come back here!

Virtually NO WiFi. “Full bars” but would timeout before it connected to anything 99% of the time (over numerous days). Worked in lobby. Rude staff when you made any request/complaint. Uninspiring pool. Loud (can hear courtyard when you try to sleep). Would not stay here again.

Our stay was magnificent. We only wish we had longer. Our room was so comfortable, spacious and quiet. All staff were so kind and really went over and aboard to make sure our stay was superb. A short stroll to the beach and few minutes more to the cafes. Plenty of sunbeds and a great size pool. Some shade cover over part of the pool during the day would be a great bonus. The breakfast was sensational with so much to choose from and the Asian fusion dinner was scrumptious. So much so we went back again. Thank you, we very much look forward to returning soon.
