Our last time in Palm Cove was 1987 (home leave from Tokyo), and the Reef House was there but much smaller. Accordingly, we chose this destination after returning from the first part of our trip spent at Port Douglas. Notwithstanding that "Ita" was brewing near the Solomons, the weather for our was near perfect, and this gave us the opportunity to see Palm Cove and the Reef House at their best.
Absolutely no complaints about our stay, as the amenities and service are first class and typically Queensland orientated. Very comfortable room, and a choice of several pools (one salt-water and one chlorinated). Lovely buffet breakfast was included (optional cooked breakfast fort a cost, although not really necessary). Interestingly, we made use of the resort restaurant for our dinner, and really wondered, afterwards, why we had been trying to find a dedicated restaurant in the area. The resort's meals were above expectations, and we were very impressed with the servers and the high quality of food . We had tried a highly recommended, discrete (and recently relocated) restaurant, and were very critical of the entire experience, especially after we were earlier told it was BYO and we then found that it actually "didn't have a liquor licence yet". My wife described it as "try-hard" food.
In respect to Reef House (it is an Accor hotel), we will definitely be returning for a longer holiday - hopefully when there is no chance of impending cyclones. A wonderful experience to remember, at a place to be recommended to any travellers, intending to stay in Palm Cove.
