First stay in Palm Cove, and must commend Clive, Mary and Sarah for all of their hospitality. The Resort is beautiful, has a lovely openness to it. Paper bark trees, stag horn ferns, and orchids, all make this a green lush tropical paradise. There is a gorgeous salt water stone in ground pool, and a cozy small hot tub. Laundry facilities are available and are extra. There is a lovely small fully equipped kitchen and fridge with toaster to make food if your wanting to not spend too much $$, and the facilities are all clean!!! I am a clean nut- and no creepy-crawlers were visible at all! ( only some cute night geckos outside my room on the ceiling- but the geckos are adorable and run away from people).
The only two pieces of criticism that I have are: Wi-Fi in this day and age should be free to all guests and not at an extra charge.
And in the studio spa rooms- there is only enough space for one person to unpack. There should be more space for quests.
Have enjoyed our stay!! And would come back here again! Because we are loving it so much- are looking to come back next year! :-) thanks Clive, Mary, and Sarah!!
