The location of Imagine Drift is great. It is within walking distance to everything in Palm Cove. The initial impression was good, with a picturesque foyer and pool area. Front desk staff members were friendly and parking was easy. Unfortunately, the pool was too cold for us to swim. Additionally, the rooms were in need of repair and furniture replacement. Cleanliness was poor and there were no tea bags (apart from green tea).

The room was nice but the state of the furniture wasn’t. The couch was covered in stains we had to put a bed sheet to sit on the couch. The chairs and small sitting blocks had stains as well. There was no housekeeping at all

A nice property, well located with lovely outdoor area and large pool. Our room was facing the street with the car park under it and it was very, very noisy. So check room location when booking. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The location is fantastically central in Palm and the pool is great, as in the photos. As with other reviews we found the apartment a bit run down and the particular apartment we were in was nowhere close to a full dinner set/glasses, had very dim lighting, a fridge with issues and poor balcony furnishings. All of this was disappointing given the price point, although staff were prompt and helpful in resolving issues. Lastly we were also disappointed that it wasn’t a true 3-bedroom. The third room is tiny, has no power outlets and barely fits it’s bed. Bedroom 2 and 3 are connected to each other and the living space with frosted glass doors making sharing difficult. This should be made clearer when booking.
