“Amazing location, helpful owners, great spa”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

We stayed for 5 nights for a quick get away. Because its the low season we basically had the place to ourselves. Palm Cove is a much nicer place to stay than Cairns city, Clifton Beach or Trinity Beach, which we also looked at. The apartment was large, very comfortable and clean, the pool was very clear and warm, and we really enjoyed the balcony spa. The owners were very helpful in helping us to plan our day trips and obviously have a lot of local knowledge. The Alassio is very well located right next to the beach swimming nets.

We stayed at Alassio's over Melbourne Cup holiday 3-7 November 2012. The place is just great for families with kids (our daughter is 20 months), very safe swimming pool (if you are a serious swimmer, you may find it a bit too shallow, but we love it with our daughter!!!), spacious apartments (we got a two bedroom apartment, but even 1 would be fine), spa in ours, quiet inside due to very good window seals (THIS is very important to us!). Beds are comfortable, and kitchen has all the necessary to cook in. There is a BBQ area outside with tables, so you can have people over and cook some fish. Nice take-away restaurants close by, like the Thai one is to die for.

Pity the first night we arrived, the surf club was giving a party, and there was NO sleeping at all! However, NO Alassio's fault, and it was just one night. The owners were very nice, the place is VERY clean, and you can see them looking after all the areas, inclusive of the BBQ area all the times. It is a nice feeling.

We could park the car in the garage, but if it is too busy, it is a first-come-first-served basis, so just a word of warning.

The place is worth the money and, again, if you have a young family - the place to be.

Room Tip: Apartments with the SPA in the balcony are the way to go.

My wife and I stayed at Alassio Hotel Palm Cove for ten days the location was great just a walk across the road and you are on the beach.There are nice restaurants right outside the hotel. We stayed in a studio apartment on the ground floor,with the swimming pool right outside our room.Some people may find the studio apartment a little small, we were offered a larger apartment for an extra cost but decided the studio was fine.It was nice and quiet at night and we got a good nights sleep,the birds did not bother us a bit it was nice to wake up with the birds.Overall we had a nice time the managers were friendly and helpful we would stay here again and would recommend to other people.

We have just spent a week staying at Alassio Palm Cove. The location is at the top end of the main street. A stroll across the road and down to the right along the beach brings you to the patrolled life guard area. Great if you have small children. We stayed on the 3 rd and top floor in a 2 bedroom apartment. Balconey with a view of the pool and pier. The beds are terrific, grounds well maintained and the staff fantastic. We will return when next in Palm Cove.

Alassio Palm Cove is the best! Fantastic location, beautiful spacious apartment with a fantastic spa on the balcony that I must say we spent a few wonderful evenings in with a nice glass of wine. Managers Daryl and Sue are brilliant very helpful with all our needs and are such a lovely couple we felt like we had known them for years. We have already re-booked our next holiday at Alassio and can't wait to get back.

Overall we were very happy with our accommodation.

The location was great. Although it is above/behind two different cafe/restaurants, there was very little noise or disruption from this. We rented an ocean view 1 bed apartment for 6 nights in late Aug.

Pros:

Location
Underground car park
Comfy bed
Two excellent air con units with fans in both living and bedrooms.
Spacious
Spa pool on the main balcony - only a pro if this is your thing, we used it once.

Cons:

Pool is very average. It's only about 2 ft deep for the most part, with a small deep section that is about 5 ft deep. Okay to have a quick dip in, but not exactly a swimming pool.
Dated decor/kitchen/bathroom area, but still functional.
Cost - it turned out to be quite pricey for the overall experience. Several of the newer apartment complexes charge very similar rates
Birds - I appreciate it isn't the apartment owner's fault in any way, but the bird noise was OUT OF CONTROL! We've never experienced anything like it and it was all night long, every night. Despite decent double glazed, sound proofed windows, there was no sleeping through this noise, and by day two, we'd bought industrial ear plugs. I had a good laugh with the owner about the bird situation and I'd imagine this is a problem for all the beach front places in Palm Cove. I'd definitely advise to pack some ear plugs though.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor if you can get it!

Our room was on the top floor (3) and had a 1 bedroom with lounge /kitch/dining/ spa pool on deck and adjoining this was a studio unit which our teenage daughters had which worked great for them to have tv and own bathroom etc. We just booked a 2 bedroom and were plaesed how it turned out. We stayed 8 days and has been mentioned in other reviews Sue & Darryl a lovely
couple and nothing a problem and no hard sell on advice for certain trips etc. We have stayed in Palm Cove before and great relaxing base and a lot of choices for day trips.
