"Winter Get-away"
We loved the location of the hotel but it is best if you have a car bcause it is out of the city a bit. We were able to go south to Babinda Boulders and Josephine Falls one day and then we went north to Port Douglas and the crocodile farm the next day. The resort had everything we needed and the room overlooked a pond and a pool - very tropical! The room was very comfortable and well set-out for my two sons and I.

Rendezvous Reef Resort Port Douglas

"Spacious apartment "
Whilst we were a little underwhelmed upon arrival to the Resort we did have a pleasant stay. The hotel staff were friendly however not very knowledgeable about local events and attractions. The apartment we stayed in was spacious and had all the requirements that one would expect of a two bedroom apartment. It was generally modern and clean. The outlook from the upstairs balcony was disappointing as it was dirty and overlooked a parking lot with old caravans parked in it. We asked for a room move but were informed the hotel was fully booked. When we booked, it appeared that we had complimentary wifi in room however on arrival we discovered this was only available in the restaurant and pool area. There was internet in room but only hard-wired and not suitable for the iPads and iPhones that we only now travel with. It appeared that the most well-appointed rooms with balconies and views over the swimming pool areas and palm trees are occupied by permanent residents and are not available to holiday makers for short term stay. Definitely a family friendly Resort.

Hotel Grand Chancellor Palm Cove

Coral Coast Drive, Palm Cove 4879 - Map
All the staff I had contact with were excellent. Patricia at Reception was particularly pleasing. She handled my Check-in swiftly and efficiently. I've travelled to thirty six countries in the last ten years, stayed in hundreds of hotels, and written a travel book, so I recognise good service when I see it. My room was clean, and the service at the restaurants was great. I ate there every night. The hotel, while not top class, is very comfortable, and not over crowded. Palm Cove is wonderful.

Roydon Beachfront Apartments

"Very well maintained, clean and comfortable"
My partner and I recently stayed at Roydon for 7 days booked through Expedia with airport transfers included in the price which were were arranged prior by email and phone with Bradley (Owner/Manager). Bradley was really helpful and also helped with organising car hire and day tours. I chose this accommodation based on other reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. The apartments are very spacious, clean and well appointed, full kitchen and laundry facilities. The location is perfect as a base toexplore numerous attractions (there is a bus stop is next door to the complex but I highly recommend hiring a car). The beach is directly opposite the hotel and there is a convenience store with ATM within walking distance. Highly recommended and would return.

"Lovely apartment with amazing views"
My friend and I just spent a week here and we shared a bedroom with 2 single beds. The apartment itself was wonderful - just what we had hoped for after reading the reviews. Big lounge and dining area with a couch that overlooks the double glass doors out to the verandah and sensational view of Palm cove beach. We were on the second floor but every room has a view - although we did prefer our level to ground where you do get a tad less privacy due to people entering and leaving their apartments. There is a lift - which was great for our luggage but we took the stairs coming and going generally. We spent heaps of time on the amazing verandah which was a good size with a good quality outdoor table and chairs - just lovely to watch the sea and the world of Palm cove go by - we even saw a wedding on the beach right in front of the apartments! The beds were standard singles and the room was an adequate size for the 2 of us. It did have a good wardrobe. Just the one bathroom (with toilet inside) given that we had only one bedroom and although another bathroom or a separate toilet would have been nice we did not have any problems sharing. The kitchen was a good size and well equipped. The pool area is beautiful and affords some protection when it is windy on the beach as it is located behind the apartments. As others have noted the pool temperature was good - there is also a BBQ area here and lounges with adequate shade for those of us not wanting to risk burning.

Pullman Palm Cove Sea Temple Resort and Spa

"Winter sunshine birthday break"
I cannot fault the Sea Temple and especially the staff. Seeking some winter sun for my husbands bitthday, I booked our shirt break the day before travelling and emailed the restaurant to book a table for our birthday dinner the night after. Arriving from a late flight from Sydney just after midnight, we were welcomed and went straight to our room which had the best bed ever. I'd booked the basic studio room which had everything we needed and plenty of space for 2. Breakfast was everything you need from a buffet, and service at every touch point of the hotel was perfect. The icing on the birthday cake was my husbands birthday dinner - lovely touches to celebrate his day such as a personalised menu and iced 'Happy Birthday' chocolate dessert greeting with perfect service and awesome food topped off a great stay. The hotel itself is lovely and the staff even better. Genuinely friendly service. I was undecided between dining at the hotel or heading out to Vivos (rated number 1 for local dining) but the hotel was the right choice. We dined at Vivos the following night and it was really lovely but for a celebration, the Pullman took line honours for just being that more intimate and personal experience.

"Wonderful place to stay"
These apartments are very nice and comfy. The kitchen is stocked, laundry machines are in each apartment, decorations are light and welcoming, and even has a Jacuzzi bathtub. Stayed for one night. Is right across the street from the beach and near the playgrounds along the beach. About a 15min walk from the main restaurants and shops but in a quieter location. Great stay!
