Reviewed March 1, 2006

I was very nervous booking this hotel as it was pricey and the reviews seemed mixed to me, but I must say it was FABULOUS!!!!! We stayed for 5 days at the end of February in an ocean view suite with our two children. The room was HUGE - the biggest most up-to-date room I've stayed in with two of everything (bath (w/ shower), bed, TVs, DVDs, family rm)...it also had a nice kitchen, dining room and great laundry room. The view was amazing and I would not recommend staying w/o the ocean front room b/c you can sleep with the ocean at your door (actually across a sidewalk). Our two balconies had a lovely jacuzzi tub. I was worried that the lagoon pool would be dirty or fake and unappealing, but it was fantasitic, warm and the whole family loved it. The only lacking thing at this hotel was the poor, slow and intrusive maid service. The room was not immaculate, but it really is the tropics, so some sand and ants to be expected. This location is ideal for adventures - Great Barrier Reef, Rainforests, Crocodile farm (a must!). Palm Cove itself was a little sleepier than I expected and fewer families and children than the reviews said, but it was the perfect getaway. I would definitely go again, probably in the Australian winter, so we could enjoy the beaches w/o the "stingers".

Stayed at the Outrigger for a few days to celebrate our wedding anniversary in late December. We were very happy on the whole - the rooms may not be very big but they are very comfortable and nicely decorated - we were very happy. The bathroom was very nicely designed and the balcony with spa (ie jacuzzi bath) was huge. The lagoon pool was great -very important since it was jelly fish season so no sea swimming. Yes, there are quite a few kids but there is also another pool which is a bit quieter. The other pool was called the Tranquility or Serenity Pool but despite the name that doesn't mean that children aren't actually allowed, which is a shame. It might be a good idea to make that one child-free since the main pool is more geared towards families. The service was fine but our only complaint was the limited times for eating. The pool side menu was not available late afternoon and at that time it was too early for dinner. Dinner ends around 9.30 and we were caught out when we wanted to eat around 10.00. Most restaurants in Palm Cove were closing then and we had to order room service which was also operating on a very minimal menu after 10.00 pm. The four restaurants in front of the hotel are not actually part of the hotel, only one of them. Nunu was very good, as was Vivo (further down the main street). The restaurant at the Angsana is nice - the only one right on the beach as there is no road in between but the food is not quite as good as Nunu.
I would definitely recommend a stay at the Outrigger as it is a really good price for the quality you get.

We booked into a Lagoon Spa room and had a really good time. A few tips re this hotel:

The room itself was relatively small but didn't make a difference given we were beside the pool the whole time.

The resort pool is very 'child friendly' so as a couple without kids we found that we were out run by families - not that it really mattered to us but I'm sure some people are sensitive about that. The only gripe I had was having beer served in plastic cups beside the pool - we weren't even swimming at the time !!!

The spa on our balcony was amazing - perfect for a post beach/pool swim. Very clean room, great bathroom, clean and the staff were always on hand if you needed anything.

The restaurants out the front (four to choose from) are pretty good - except for the Thai - terrible customer service - the worse that I had experienced in a very long time.

Be aware that you can get any type of weather at Palm Springs - I mean it is the tropics !! Just be aware for four seasons in one day.
