“Lovely Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

We stayed at Paradise on the beach at the end of Feb 2013 and had a lovely stay.If was ideally situated and had a small travel agency at the front which was great as we booked our trips there.
There was a bar and restaurant next door which we made good use of. A special mention though for the lady on reception (who I think was owner or manageress )as we had a problem in the UK
during our stay and needed to send emails and paperwork to the UK.She was great and did them all for us as we couldn't get our internet on our laptop. Thank you it was a great stay.

We stayed here in May of 2011. I intended to leave a review when we returned from our Australian vacation but I never got around to it. We absolutely loved this hotel. The owners were very nice and the travel agent for excursions was very easy to work with. The location was wonderful and it cannot be beat. My husband and I keep saying that we would like to own a hotel like this when we retire, not too big and relaxing. It also was a nice home base for excursions. The rooms are not elaborate but were nice. It was a great value. We hope to return again someday!

Super friendly person at reception, large room with kitchenette which was nice and located across from the beach....but also locate dent to tacky karaoke bar which I can hear people partying at as we speak. So quiet and relaxing this is not.

Entrance to the hotel is through what looks to be a travel agency which I thought was odd.

All that being said, Palm Cove is lovely and the hotel provides a clean spacious room. Rest of the place is a little tired and would stay elsewhere in the future. A very average hotel

I'm sorry your stay was made uncomfortable by noise from the restaurant next door, however I point out that had you let us know about this at the time we may have been able to do something about it.
The desk at the front of the reception is not a travel office, but is a booking service for local tours & attractions. It is not unusual in this part of the world, with most tourism accomodation houses offering guests an in-house tour booking facility such as this. Most of the smaller establishments actually sell tours across the reception counter. Ours is just a little larger and has the two services seperated.
Neither of the complaints you have made are covered within the Star ratings criteria, and therefore have no bearing on how we are rated. I point out that we are rated by AAA Star Ratings - an independant professional body who regularly inspect properties such as ours for the purpose of ensuring that standards are maintained. AAA last inspected Paradise on the Beach Resort in November 2012. If you Google Star Ratings Australia and click on the listing for AAA Tourism you can view all the ratings criteria.

Paradise on the Beach has the top three requirements in real estate, location, location, location. Yes Paradise on the Beach is in a great location in Palm Cove and Palm Cove is itself a great location as is the whole Cairns-Port Douglas area is a great location.

The hotel is nice, clean and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the pool area, with more shade than sun it is a great place to relax. There was some repairs going on while we were there, but it did not affect us.

Jan and Matt themselves give the hotel and extra star. They really made our stay better. Their recommendations for restaurants, activities and attractions were spot on. If they give you a suggestion or recommendation, you can trust it. I would stay at Paradise on the Beach just because of Jan and Matt.

My comments of suggestions if your going to the Palm Cove - Cairns area.
For transportation you might consider taking a shuttle bus from the Airport to the hotel and then only rent a car the days you need one. Save money and no worries about parking.

Things to do:
Drive to Port Douglas, just for the drive. Views and drive is incredible.
Go to Granite Gorge, the hike is pretty tuff.

The location is excellent, you cross the street and you are on the beach. The rooms are very big, comfortable and very well maintained. The backyard is awesome with a park and more palm tress so you can listen to the wild birds all day long. The couple that were at the reception (owners) were extremely friendly and helpful. I had a problem with my leg and the man came to my room to offer help. the parking was very adequate. I would definitely recommend it toanybody and would come back if I visit Palm Cove again, which is the Paradise by definition

Room Tip: Choose room that face the backyard forest

Very much enjoyed my stay. Location is great, room was clean, lovely view over the pool, tropical setting, birds chirping, staff friendly and a short cross the road to gorgeous beach and views. Love the palms along the foreshore. No faults, and would definitely stay again and recommend it. Only slight negative - smoking on balconies - had a couple of days where I needed to keep my door shut because of smokers next door.

Room Tip: Perhaps, if like me you would prefer to stay away from "smokers" mention this.

Thank you for the kind comments. We don't allow guests to smoke in their rooms & suites, but do allow it on balconies and in the podium area as an incentive to comply.
