Third visit to this hotel. We just love it. We stay in a one bedroom apartment which is great value for money. Lovely and big, beautifully furnished, with kitchen and washing machine coming in very handy. We always eat out for dinner due to the fabulous restaurants in Palm Cove, but love the option of breakfast in the apartment. The pool is beautiful, one of the nicest I've been in. Only disappointment this trip - we asked night before check out could we extend our check out. Receptionist said yes, let them know next morning and could extend past 12 midday for $20 per hour. After deciding we'd like to stay till 1pm, we spoke to the receptionist working on the morning of our departure. She declined saying the cleaners would need to clean the room so we could not stay past 12.00. We went back at 3pm to collect our bags and since our room was ground floor I went for a peek - the room had still not been cleaned. Anyway, since everything else so fabulous at this hotel I'm sure we'll be back again asap.
