“Rude Staff tainted the whole day with yelling at my child and complaining about making coffee.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

I will start with the good.. Great coffee and reasonably priced. The play area is fantastic for kids also.
Would have been a great day if the staff weren't so rude. Upon purchasing a coffee one employee started moaning about the workload in front of us. This made me feel bad for ordering and I did not go back. Then taking my 3 year old to the toilet he mistook a broken table for a chair and sat on it. As I picked him up and explained he shouldn't sit on it a staff member started yelling over the counter at him. This alone ruined my day. I would suggest teaching your staff some manners and not having broken furniture laying around.

“locals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

we are Locals and don`t live far from the Club. It`s nice to sit, relax and enjoy a coffee. We had a few times breakfast as well which was very delicious. A bit pricy, but what is not expensive?

“Very family oriented”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Spectacular club house, great bar and views. The restaurant here borders on average-good but is spoilt by a childrens play area close by disturbing the vista and the peace. A shame they didn't place it further away. We bring visitors to Cairns here for arvo tea during the week while the kids are at school for a pleasant afternoon tea. If you're lucky they'll have rosella jam on!

“Supurb setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

The course is excellent and the grounds are pristine. We will definitely be back for another round and would highly recommend this course to any golfer. We originally came here just to have a hit on the driving range and a drink in the club house through a deal on bookme.com.au. Excellent job Paradise Palms. The view from the clubhouse and course is fantastic, worth coming by even for just a meal in the restaurant.

“Adventure playground with pool to cool after”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Although a bit pricey the adventure playground for kids are great, with bouncing pillows, that even a myself enjoys getting on, cubby houses and climbing trees. A true delight for the kids. The nearby pools are also great to cool of in during the hot part of the year. The pool Cafe is rarely open so to pay entry and order food one must venture into the club, a hassle with young kids and it aslo very expensive and not childfriendly. So bring your own food!
