We thought we were getting a 2 bedroom apartment with each room a queen bed. Well one room was ok but the other was a terrible little room with nothing but a bifold window separating the rooms , it was so small that you can’t get down either side of the bed . There was just enough room at the end of the bed to walk into the room . The only way to get to the swimming pool from the unit was like a five minute walk through all of the buildings corridors, completely around the other side of the property . Probably the worst set up resort I have stayed in at palm cove

Great location and friendly/helpful staff especially Kirsty on reception. Unfortunately there was maintenance work around the pool area which we wasn’t made aware of when we booked. Our bedding was stained and room cleanliness wasn’t the best standard. Room amenities were minimal

The apartment was airy and clean. The 2nd bedroom was far away from the bathroom and not very private. The amenities were great and the pool super inviting. Staff were lovely. Would stay here again..

The location is great, the room itself was very small for a 2 bedroom, we had a toddler with us and the 2nd bedroom was basically a glass box, it was impossible to keep the light out at night so when our daughter went to bed at 7 we had to turn all the lights off and couldn’t have the tv without creating a rave in her room! Pool area is great and plenty to eat nearby.

We had a lovely stay here but there was no communication that the pool was under construction, so half of the decking was off limits meaning there was little room for all the guests to sit. The construction happening while we were swimming was ok, but should have been communicated prior to our arrival as it was a pre planned upgrade of the decking. The bathrooms also don’t have fans which was odd for the climate as nothing dried.
