Palazzo Versace
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Main Beach
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Had a great stay at the Palazzo Versace. Beautiful rooms, plenty of space some lovely touches such as oil burners, WIR, powder room etc. Had a problem with the TV and a very capable man with a tool belt and everything came and fixed it straight away. Can't recommend the restaurants and room service enough, everything was presented beautifully and was of an excellent standard. The service in the restaurants was also great. The guys at the front door are a real asset too, one even put out my husbands cigarette as he couldn't see the bin! Concierge very helpful & I thoroughly recommend the chauffeur driven tour around the coast with a very informative driver. The atmosphere is also very relaxed and the staff very welcoming, which is nice to see in such a large establishment. We stayed in a deluxe suite, originally booked 2 nights ended up staying for five nights as we couldn't leave it was that good.

Stayed here for 5 nights. A beautiful hotel with a beautiful pool area. We stayed in a superior suite which faced Seaworld Drive. It was a lovely suite with a separate bedroom, living area and spacious bathroom with spa bath. The buffet breakfast each morning was brilliant with a vast array of food. Service throughout the entire hotel was impeccable. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I surprised my wife with a weekend at the Palazzo Versace for our wedding anniversary. From the very beginning I knew it was going to be a good weekend. We were only waiting at reception for only a few minutes, in a queue when Martin came over to us and said if we would like to come to the counter opposite the reception counter he would be with us in a minute. The check-in was quick and professional, and Martin even personallly showed us to our room and described all the features of the room and the services of hotel. He noticed that I was carrying a leather bottle case (containing a bottle of Moet) and asked if we would like some ice sent up to us. Very observant and helpful. He also asked if we were celebrating something special. I advised him that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The room was magnificent, exceptionally well appointed with everything you could wish for. Big comfy bed, big fluffy bath and pool towels, very plush bathrobes and even slip-on Versace slippers.
Dinner at the Vanitas restaurant that night was out of this world. The staff and the service from every one of them was excellent. Matthieu was friendly and attentive without intruding and looked after us very well. When we were shown to our table he presented my wife with a card and a gift of a small bottle of Versace perfume for our anniversary. Foood was brilliant, wine was magnificent and we had a great night.
Next morning, we had the buffet breakfast by the pool. A lovely outlook and beautifully prepared food with great coffee. Checkout by Leah was fast, friendly and professional.
In summing up, an expensive weekend getaway, but in this case you certainly get what you pay for.

I have just stayed in a lagoon suite at the palazzo Versace. I stay in many 5 star hotels around the world and have never written a review before but feel moved to do so this time...let me summarise the good and bad...
- checking in, one person serving with a queue...
- room, suite was nice but no wifi in room (only in lobby) and no movies on demand plus poor DVD selection
- restaurants, lunch and dinner at vie were good (lunch v good and service excellent). Vanitas (fine dining) was TERRIBLE. Service was appalling, took 1.5 hours for the main course to arrive for a 9pm sitting. Then the food itself was very average. Queues for breakfast - empty tables sitting uncleaned for ages while we queued.
- wake up call for last morning didn't happen
- and best of all I wanted to give my feedback on checkout in response to the normal 'how did you enjoy your stay' but he didn't even bother to ask but did bother to inform me of the credit card surcharge on a visa.
I spent 4000 aud for 3 nights - poor value.

Dear Gary S

I was really disappointed reading your response, and would like to apologise for the issues that you encountered during your stay with us.

In regards to your unsatisfactory dining experience, I have discussed your feedback with our Executive Management Team who are both suprised and concerned about the slow service you received. We have a very high standard of delivery here at Palazzo Versace and they will share this with their team.

I am happy to announce that we are currently in the process of introducing WIFI throughout the hotel and will soon have movies on demand in all rooms which will eliminate the chance of missing out on the DVD of your choice.

I would very much like the opportunity for you to return to our hotel and to experience the true Palazzo style. Please contact me directly at grm@palazzoversace.com.au, and I would be more than happy to look after you on your visit.

Warm Regards

We stayed here in April 2013. It was only overnight. The price was right and we had a buffet breakfast for two thrown in. When we arrived our room wasn't ready. But we were offered free drinks at Le jardin and were escorted there by the reception staff. My wife had booked a spa at aurora spa. They are a separate business but the use the hotel facilities. The change rooms were tired but presentable enough.

Our bags were not in our room when we got in a few hours later when the spa was completed.. but a call to reception and about 15 minutes later and it was resolved. Our turn down service didn't arrive until after we had returned from dinner and were almost asleep. That was after being asked to return at 7 when they arrived the first time 5 pm.

The hotel and rooms are starting to show their age. For example the ceilings in the main dining area near the glass are showing significant water damage. The car park was a bit of a mess with hotel furniture visible and seemingly stored all over the place. But the service, apart from the above, couldn't be faulted on our short stay.

We'd probably stay here again.

Dear _BadApple

Thank you for taking the time to review Palazzo Versace on Tripadvisor recently.

I am sorry that you encountered a variety of concerns during your stay and I do hope that this did not affect your overall stay with us. Attention to detail is key in providing the 5 star service for which we are renowned for, and I am happy to announce that we are currently working towards revamping our hotel.

Here at Palazzo Versace we have recently started refurbishing our rooms, and will have 50 rooms complete by the end of June (with a view to complete all rooms within the next year). I have had the chance to view some of the finshed rooms, and we are very excited with the end result.

Please email me directly at grm@palazzoversace.com.au should you return, and I would be more than happy to personally look after you.

Warm Regards

This hotel is opulance at its best and i would expect nothing less from a hotel of this calibar , you pay for what you get and when your folking out $500 + a night for a room you want the best , the rooms were everything i would expect the bedding comfortable and the bathroom was just beautiful with the marble and spa bath , the ammenities are everything you would expect . Pool is loverly as is the fake beach and bean bag lounges , having to pay extra for a kabana package is a little annoying considering the price you are already paying for the hotel they could at least supply you with a kabana . The restaurant attached to versace is VIE it is not even worth a look in , its a perthetic excuse for a restaurant ( please dine elsewhere ) . The breakfast buffet was that of a 5 star hotel but not amazing or anything special , it was loverly by all means but i was expecting more from this hotel .

Room Tip: Get a pool view , other wise you will be looking at a car park .

Perfect luxurious accommodation. We didn't need to leave the hotel, the stunning pool and the impeccable service made our stay enjoyable. Loved the restaurants, food, cocktails and the best buffet in Queensland, with an amazing selection of seafood and desserts to keep any person happy. At the end of our stay at the Palazzo Versace we were completely relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to get back to work. A must stay and we look forward to our next trip there soon. Diana Clark
