Alamanda Palm Cove by Lancemore
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Palm Cove
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

So happy with the Alamanda at Palm Cove. Our 2 bedroom suite was fully self contained and the hotel is beautifully situated on the beach and our included breakfasts at NuNu were delicious. The staff assisted us with all our tour enquiries and bookings and arranged all of our transfers. The heated rock pool and spa were a hit with us and the kids. We would stay again and recommend to friends and family.

We have stayed here before (albeit 10 years ago) and once again it was lovely. The studio apartment was huge, the kitchen well-appointed, two televisions and two bathrooms, two closets and a washing machine & dryer.
The coffee maker requires pods, unfortunately none are provided free of charge (I would have thought the first 2 would be on the house) and have to be purchased from the front office at more than double the price you buy them from Nespresso. Hint: take your own if possible.
Cleaning is well done and efficient.
The swimming pools are lovely, unfortunately only one is heated and if you want it for exercise you need to hop in early before the kids takeover.
I would happily stay here again.

Hi Louise,

Thank you for taking the time to review our resort.

We had already been considering whether to provide a pod or two complimentary to guests and will now do so, so thanks for the suggestion. We have now ordered a large batch and are awaiting their arrival so we can provide some with the small complimentary packets of dishwashing liquid & washing powder etc on arrival.

We certainly could not match the bulk buying power of a behemoth like Coles and sell them at a fair price as a convenience which we believe is a benefit to our guests. They are certainly not double the price we pay from Nespresso & I think this was a little harsh a description of our prices.

We are happy to have as we understand the only heated pool in Palm Cove and glad that you enjoyed it during your stay.

Thank you again for your suggestion with the pods and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again next time you head to our little slice of paradise.

Outstanding service and hospitality. We did not have the privilege of staying at this lovely venue. However the spa and offer of an umbrella to non guests was much appreciated. We will be back on our next visit to the lovely Palm Cove. Compares to se of the other temple like resorts in the area the service here is exceptional

We had a quick honeymoon there, and it was a highlight of our trip. The suite was very spacious, had everything we needed and more. Staff were all fantastic. Great pools and surrounds.
Will definitely be returning

By far the best and biggest suite we've ever stayed in. Huge living area and bedroom, chef's kitchen, beautiful decor. The gardens are lovely with 3 very nice and very different pools. The staff were friendly enough, and a tropical cool drink on arrival was a nice touch. Great location too, on the beach and close to the cafe sector. We enjoyed our stay there very much.

Room Tip: Go for a ground floor room with a private balcony, ours had a nice little tropical garden.

Perfectly placed, Alamanda sits directly on the beach, (the only property of it's kind in Palm Cove) it is well worth paying extra for a beachside suite. The rooms are tastefully decorated and spacious. You cannot fail to relax when looking through swaying palm trees.
The staff are helpful, the food at Nunu restaurant is superb, and beautifully presented.

Room Tip: Request a room on the ground floor if you are worried about numerous flights of stairs (for prams or...
