“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 29 November 2008

We stayed at these apartment for 4 nights. This is excellent accommodation for a very reasonable price. The managers were fantastic and extremely helpful. Apartments are furnished to a very high standard, very clean, spacious, bright and modern. Complimentary tea,coffee milk and water on our arrival. Lovely pool area and BBQ for guests to use. Broadband access TV, VCR, DVD player, telephone, air conditioning and ceiling fans, large balcony with seating, car parking facilities. Palm Cove is only a 20minute drive from Cairns and on a beachfront location with a tropical relaxed atmosphere. This is the perfect place to unwind - there are even a couple of spa's to choose from.

The apartments are located next to a restaurant were you get discount as a guest, with good food and play area for the kids. Just down from that is an off-licence (or bottle shop as they call it), after passing a couple of coffee shops you reach the main street. There are many restaurants to choose from, all of a high quality, there are 2 supermarkets, one which is directly on the main street, and another which is upstairs further on down in what they call the 'shopping centre'! The hotel can arrange your pick-up from the airport, they also have cars which you can hire for a small daily amount. They organised all our tours and provided us with honest valuable advice on the best ones for us as were were travelling with our 3yo son. All the tours picked up/drop off from the apartments. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Palm Cove or indeed the Cairns area.

Elysium Apartments are on Veivers Road, just a short walk away (approximately 5 minutes) from Williams Esplanade, the beach and a multitude of fantastic restaurants.

We stayed with another couple and booked into a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment. This was ideal as we didn't need to share a bathroom. Also, the beds in the second bedroom zipped together to form a king so we didn't have to worry about one couple getting stuck with twin beds.

The apartment was spacious, clean and very well appointed. Even though we only stayed two nights, this was the kind of apartment that you'd be very comfortable staying in for a week, as everything you need to prepare your own meals, etc is there.

The apartment had everything you'd expect in the lounge room - TV, DVD, cable, stereo, air conditioning, internet access - plus a separate dining area. There were balconies on three sides of the apartment which made it feel very airy and light, and added to the feeling of spaciousness. The view from the balconies was fairly ordinary, although from one we could see a bit of the mountains behind Palm Cove.

The pool area was smaller than it looked in the pictures on the website but still a very pleasant spot to sit and read, or go for a quick dip.

All in all the apartment was very comfortable. Even with four adults lounging around in it, we didn't feel crowded.

My wife & I have just arrived back from a 5 night stay at the Elysium in Palm Cove.
We arrived late in the evening when reception was closed. Tony & Yvette the couple who look after the apartments had organised a security code for the safes which they e mailed us to ensure we could get the key for our apartment.
We booked a 1 bedroom apartment but were given a 2 bedroom at no extra cost although we didn't have any use for the extra bedroom.
Our thoughts when we first entered the apartment was wow! this is perfect for what we needed its clean modern and great care has been taken to ensure there is everything in the apartment you are going to need for a short stay.
We were very dissapointed when we walked onto the balcony to find our only view was that of a carpark roof.( a really bad view! )
The photographs on the apartments website are a fair reflection on what to expect although the pool looks quite big but in reality is quite small, good if you have small children.
Tony & Yvette were very helpful when it came to booking tours, hiring a car etc.
Would we go there again ??? mmm! don't know, perhaps, not sure. We would like a room with a better view though then we wouldn't have to keep the blinds closed.
Palm Cove is a small but very clean place with a large variety of restaurants to choose from and is perfectly situated to visit Port Douglas,Cairns and kuranda.

Our stay at Elysium was one to remember. Tony, the manager, looked after us from booking our tours to loaning us brollys. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment that overlooked the lush green mountains which was a gorgeous view to wake up to. It still had that nice new, clean feeling and as for the king size bed well what can i say. Also having the rental cars on site was a great help and certainly saved lots of time. I totally reccommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely be making a return visit. Only one problem we found was that a week was just not long enough :)

  • Liked — The cleanliness and space
  • Disliked — Could have had a hairdryer!!!

We stayed at these apartments over Christmas and New Year. Excellent accommodation in a two bedroomed aprtment overlooking the mountains. We asked for a quiet situation and overall it was, the only problem we had was dealt with by the Managers straight away. The apartments are relatively new , were clean and run very efficiently by Yvette and Tony who went out of their way to be helpful without imposing lots of rules and regulations. This was our second visit to Palm Cove and having good accommodation certainly helps to enhance the experience, we would have no problems in using this accommodation again.

We booked two nights at Elysium Apartments to attend a wedding which was being held at Angsana just down the st.
We had a studio apartment (108b) and it was really good. There was no view except the roof of the tavern. But at least there was a balcony! The room was pretty large actually and had a 'kitchenette' with sink, microwave and mini fridge. The bathroom was nicely fitted out with a double shower too!
Had reservastions about the place being next to the tavern but we heard no late night noise or anything at all. The location was great, even though it's not on the beach it's literally a two or three minute walk down the street!

We loved the food at Vivo restaurant on the grounds of Mantra Amphora and also the food at the Angsana restaurant Far Horizons was also stunning, but quite expensive, we ate most of our meals at Vivo!
The pool are is nice with a bbq too if you wanted to use it.

The carparking was secure underground with remote door and internet was $10 /24hrs...they actually had us connected for longer than 24hrs too but didn't charge any extra.

The owners and also the lady who works on saturdays were lovely and we found the place to be great value.

We found Tony and Yvette who manage the property to be excellent, very welcoming and their willingness to assist us with what ever questions we had were great.

The services available in terms of tours, car hire and airport transfers where all looked after for us by Tony & Yvette before we had even landed. Service was always with a smile and when your are on holidays....(well I don't know about everyone else....) but we were glad to just have to wake up and know that we didn't have to worry about a thing other then getting down stairs on time to be picked up.

We stayed in apartment 17 and it was great with 2 bedrooms and all the facilities that we needed. It was near new and yet it had a welcoming appeal to it. Very clean, very fresh and fully self-contained which was fantastic for us as we were on a tight budget - so we didn't want to eat out every night. The apartment allowed for us to cook and enjoy a night in on occasion.

We were also facing away from the beach which was good because we didn't get the night time winds - just a cool pleasant breeze. We could also see the pool from our balcony which made it easier for us to decide if we wanted to relax at the pool, because there weren’t a lot of people there, or head down to the beach which was a short 10 minute walk.

We will be staying there again that is for sure and recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, well serviced and close to the beach apartment - particularly apartment 17!!!!
