Angsana Resort or Sea Temple?

Has anyone had a good stay at Angasana lately...I read that it was tired looking but wondered if it had been upgrades since those reviews? Is the Sea Temple better in Palm Cove or Port Douglas?

You know what in the end its just a hotel room - you sleep in it. You are only going top be there for 2 nights!!! Why does it matter so much?- just chill out and enjoy. The environment and the experience of it in North Queensland is what counts and its gorgeous- surely the hotel is just a side issue.

When we travel we stay in anything from 6* to youth hostels- and really I hardly remember any of them. I do remember the experiences I had and the places I saw though.

Sea temple without doubt

ocean running i have reviews for both properties and TBH i was very disappointed with Angsana last Sept/oct. i would stay at Sea temple again in aheart beat but have a penthouse! We did the first tiome.

Nozzie,

rooms depend on what you want them for, we wanted a hotel to sit on the balcony, watch the ocean and chill out which was not possible at Angsana. if our room was for going out from 9am to 5pm to sight see and then sleep then not so much an issue as Angsana was quiet and well located.

The fact that i had sliced my hand opened and asked for 30 mins extra room time to "CLEAN UP"before we left showed a totally silly attitude from staff..instead of having a cleaned out fridge, tidied bathrooms etc we left quite a disaster IMHO 3 of us in 30 mins was more than there 1 staff member who did not start to clean the room until after 12 (we were sitting in front of the room on the beach) could dream about.

Definately Angsana, has style, charm and atmosphere which are sadly lacking at sea Temple. Also Angsana is a lot closer to all the other restaurants etc in Palm Cove and has great duirect beach access.

I can only comment on Sea Temple from experience.

I stayed at sea Temple having researched from friends experiences who have stayed at both. It may be our demographic and preference for modern rather older style but everyone agreed Sea Temple was plush, clean modern and stylish. Facilities of lagoon pools. lap pool and views of the beach certainly met our needs. Best of luck> I am sure you will enjoy either as Palm Cove is a wonderful spot
