Just returned from 7days at Alamanda Palm Cove. What a wonderful place, and a wonderful week. The resort is perfectly located, right on the beach (the only one in Palm Cove) right down one end of the beach. It has three lovely pools, although the unheated ones were a bit chilly. The vibe is very relaxed and tropical. Great gardens, and lovely setting.
The apartment was spacious (we had a 3 bedroom). Well appointed kitchen with plenty of plates etc. Cooktop, oven fridge etc all full size, so easy to cook for yourself. Warning: make sure you cook for yourself before you eat at NuNu which is the restaurant on site - once you eat there, you will want to go for every meal.
Bed very comfortable and at the back of the property so very quiet. Excellent bathrooms and nice cosmetics.
The staff are extremely helpful and obliging, and the reception had movies to borrow and lots of helpful information. There are books to read, and lovely little wedding chapel.
The only downside was the slow and intermittent internet connection. I think they are still working on it.
Make sure you have at least one breakfast, lunch and dinner at NuNu. It is right on the beach, and the food is sensational. Had the best lunch ever, in the sun, with little tasting plates, and couple of glasses of wine. Perfect day made it the best. We even received a complimentary plate because they had run out of the salad we ordered.
There are also plenty of other places to eat in PC, in easy walk. We also paddled kayaks around the island, and went for a couple of drives in the hinterland, but mainly read, slept, walked and rejuvenated before facing the wintry blast of Melbourne in July.
