“Stylish, but ...”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Stylish, spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable - everything as it says in the broschure except the Internet doesn't work properly: email was just about possible, but no google maps, no booking excursions, no looking at photos of surroundings. On a foreign trip, as far from anywhere as Palm Cove, that's a serious drawback. And at £ 200/night, I expect the accommodation to deliver what's in the broschure.

Chris and her 3 companions stayed for two nights for the Solar Eclipse in a large, elevated, 2-bedroom 2- bathroom apartment with commanding views over the beach a few metres away, and all were able to view the eclipse from the comfort of their own private balcony. Perfect. Sorry if the local ISP companies did not provide unlimited internet capacity during that time.

While we offer free Wifi access via our new ADSL2+ service, it was unfortunate that Chris chose the absolute busiest day for internet service in the entire history of Palm Cove to belatedly plan her onward journey to Mission Beach, competing with thousands and thousands of visitors for limited local internet capacity slowed to a crawl by massive demand. It was a network problem completely outside our control and was over by the time of departure early on the morning of the 15th. Clearly technology is not always the answer to everything.

A comprehensive tour booking service, local advice, and maps of Mission Beach and other areas of interest continue to be available from the tour desk at reception.

Sincerely, Dave

We had an absolutely amazing time staying in this lovely beachside apartment. Dave looked after us exceptionally well and went above and beyond the call of duty to make our trip the other side of the world so wonderful. We would highly recommend staying here. The apartment was absolutely enormous with everything you could possible need. Palm Cove is a lovely quiet place and an ideal location for the reef and Daintree Rainforest. We would definitely stay with them again, if the opportunity to travel again from London arose. Thank you very much to Dave and Eva.

This is a well managed facility. The public areas and gardens are bright and welcoming and the large well equipped and squeaky clean unit allowed us to entertain and self cater with ease. Our balcony was just 50 meters from the gentle lapping waves of the Coral Sea - we were here 10 days and could never tire of the view.
Not having a restaurant attached is an asset as Palm Cove caters for a lot of weddings and parties and can be noisy into the night. Villa Paradiso is a quiet place.
We have previusly stayed in top class accommodation in Palm Cove and certainly will return to this lovely facility. Good underground free parking
Eva is an ideal host- helpful when needed while respecting ones privacy.

Room Tip: We stayed on floor 1 and friends on 2 both were great.

Absolutely beachfront, with views over the beach and out to sea - it was all that they promised plus more. The rich coloured gardens were complemented by well kept lawns, and add to that the spectacular ancient Melaleuca trees in the front yard and we had a unique and memorable outlook. Had a huge and well appointed with a lovely tropical feel, well itted out, and spotlessly clean. Peaceful yet so close to the beach, shops, and restaurants we wished we had stayed longer.

We loved our stay at Villa Paradiso. It is directly in front of the beach, just a short walk across the street. Lovely pool out the back and the service is really excellent. Eva is lovely. We were disappointed with the the level of cleanliness. The bathroom needs a good bleaching and the grout between the tiles scrubbed. Additionallu, the cupboards and drawers smelt mouldy and needed to be cleaned and aired. The floor hadn't been mopped properly, and the floors in the living area hadn't been vacuumed adequately either as there was dirt and dust under foot which wasn't ideal. We would definitely stay here again, although I will be contacting them prior to arrival to make them aware of my cleanliness expectations. We had a beautiful view from our balcony through the trees onto the water. Palm Cove is just a wonderful place in the world. I encourage you to stay here.

Thanks BAHMelbourne for your feedback. It's just a pity that you didn't mention anything during your stay so that we could have arranged a remedy at the time. We have looked into your concerns and the result is that the cleaners at the time of your stay no longer work here, our new cleaners are aware of the standards expected, and new post-cleaning checks are in place to ensure the standards our contractors achieve are of a higher level. Sincerely, Dave

My husband and I just returned from our 4 night stay at Villa Paradiso and we wished we had planned to stay longer. We were pleasantly surprised by the tastefully decorated and spacious apartment upon arrival. The views from our balcony were second to none; with the beach directly across the road.
The apartment provided all the practical amenities for a relaxing stay and the resort is ideally located to restaurants, cafes/shops.
We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Both Eva and Dave are lovely hosts; very welcoming and helpful.
We will be back.

Thank you,
Kathryn

Room Tip: Ideal for couples and family/friends.

This was a wonderful experience. The most amazing three bedroom apartment, class all the way. Our view through the glorious Malaluca's to the beach only steps away from the building was breath taking. Amazingly well run by thoughtful and such professional people (thanks for all the extra's). I never have to look for another place to stay. We can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: Just email and let Dave and Eva know your needs, they listened to ours and made our holiday perfect.
