“Great location, great value large suites!”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

Stayed with Our daughter, partner and 15 month old grandchild for a week in a 2BR suite and just loved it! The pool (although a little chilly for those more senior of us ) was very safe and enjoyable for the little ones and was sheltered and sunny most of the day and the large spa pool was just wonderful! The staff were helpful and assisted us with baggage removal to/from the room as my husband had an injury. The adjoining ViVo restaurant was great and we had a pre wedding cocktail hour (3 hours actually!) there which was great as was dinner and breakfast! Great service all round in a wonderful surrounding! Well done we will be back!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Very often we find that the people that have enjoyed their stay will let us know directly but they don't always take the time to write a review, I very much appreciate you doing so. I hope that we have the pleasure of hosting you in Palm Cove again soon.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment overlooking the pool. The apartment was spacious and nicely decked out. The pool is enormous and fantastic for children with a number of different shelves to the pool and with tiny fountains. The position of the buildings also shelters the pool from the ocean
breezes that can spring up in palm cove.

One criticism though is the lack of
kitchen utensils provided which is an unpleasant surprise in an otherwise well set out kitchen.

Recently stayed at the gorgeous Mantra Amphora, following a mess-up by Flight Centre with our bookings. The GM, and also delightful receptionist, helped organize a room for us, and we were so glad they did as it was excellent. Brilliant location, warm, friendly and helpful staff and wonderful accommodation all made for a fantastic stay. Highly recommended.

My husband and I and our 5 month old daughter stayed in a one bedroom apartment at Mantra Amphora in Palm Cove for 7 nights in July 2011, and cannot recommend it highly enough!
The staff were fantastic - they were really friendly and helpful, and knowledgable about the local attractions.
The resort is beautiful and really family orientated. There was a bit of noise from the pool during the day, but with all the wonderful attractions around Palm Cove, we didn't spend much time in our apartment during the day. With the front door closed there was very little noise at all in the apartment. I enjoyed a massage and facial at the Senses spa on site, and we had a lovely tapas meal at the nearby Vivo restaurant.
The apartment met all our needs. There was a fully equipped kitchen (stovetop, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge and all the required cutlery and crockery, as well as a washing machine and tumble drier), a beautiful spa bath and large shower, a comfy king-sized bed and porta-cot, a reasonably-sized living area and a lovely front verandah with a view over the beautiful pool.
We booked some tours through the resort and the staff were very helpful in this regard. One of our tours was delayed due to a mechanical problem on the boat, and the staff went above and beyond to ensure that we were rebooked on a similar tour on the same day.
All round, a fantastic experience in a beautiful location!

For the second year running, we had an 8 night stay in late June at apartments in The Mantra Amphora complex at Palm Cove. My wife and I together with our son and his family (two young children 3 and 5 years old) booked a two bedroom apartment and a one bedroom apartment from Annandale Apartments at http://www.annandalepalmcove.com.au/.
These apartments are superbly equipped and wonderfully located overlooking the lagoon pool and adjacent to Vivo which is one of Palm Cove's best and certainly the most family friendly restaurant. Guests in these apartments are well looked after by a friendly resident couple. This is definitely a great place to stay for a family holiday with a huge range of activities of all sorts within close distance. We'll certainly be making this an annual event from now on. Everything about the apartments was superb from the fresh new furnishings to the sparkling clean bathrooms.
