“lovely resort”
Reviewed July 1, 2009

The moment Iarrived I knew I was in for a treat. Front recepetion were very helpful & the whole resort is beautiful. The view from the restaurant facing the golf course is stunning.
Recommended for all travellers etc family's, golfers, honeymooners. I think photograhers would have a field day at this resort. I notice weddings are very popular here. The rooms are lovely & the food is simple & nice. Great breakfast so yummy. Every cocktail you can muster & they change their menu specials every week to suit all taste buds. The pool is beautiful, with barbaque facility, the grounds are so beautiful with wild life etc birds, wallabies frogs. Maybe a bit off the main road but only a 5min walk to the main highway or a short drive to everything. This place is a hidden gem, you will love it.

Paradise Palms is a newly opened resort which has seemingly not become popular with tourists yet. When we arrived, there were literally 3 cars parked outside and for the two days we spent there, we only saw one other guest.

We were given a room looking toward the pool area, which looked lovely and the exact opposite of crowded =) (never got to use it due to our limited time and multiple activities in the Cairns area). The room itself was clearly being used for the first time, smelled like fresh paint and everything was sparkling brand new. It is a regular size, has the usual furnishings (no boutique design or anything like that, but still very nice), an HD flat screen TV, a kitchen-like stand with a small fridge and utensils (the hotel has no room service or restaurant). The bathroom is on the large side with a bathtub and separate shower. What I completely loved is that the bathroom and the bedroom shared a wall which had a window opening into the bedroom. It really 'added space' to the bedroom (see attached pics).

The hotel didn't seem to be extensively staffed (not that it needs at this point), but we requested some things from reception and we were asked to come down and pick them up, as opposed to someone delivering them to our room. No biggie, but it shouldn't normally happen at a hotel which markets itself as 4.5 star.
Wireless internet was not (yet) available while we were at the resort, and paid LAN was just installed - we surfed the net for free on the first night, and paid 20AUD on the second night.

The hotel is located about a 40min drive from Cairns airport in the Northern Beach area (Kewarra Beach). A car is a must, I think - this way, you can easily explore Cairns or Port Douglas, or make day trips to the Daintree/Cape Tribulation area.

All in all, this hotel has a good potential and I would repeat if I am ever in the Cairns area.
