“Fantastic accommodation in fantastic location”
Reviewed 25 April 2009

We spent just over a week at the Elysium and the facilities and owners contributed to this being an amazing family holiday. The 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment was modern, spacious, with well-fitted out kitchen, airconditioning and fans. The pool was a hit. It was only a couple of minutes walk to the stunning Palm Cove esplanade, cafes and shops.
The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, have good knowledge of the area and its attractions, and are willing to make all arrangements for tours, transfers, car hire etc. Nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend this family friendly accommodation.

This hotel is new and under new management, and it shows.
The hotel and the room was clean and well kept. Due to the low season we probably got upgraded to suite which made our stay fabulous as we stayed there for six nights.

Management arranged us most of our day trips without extra commission. They have a good knowledge about day trips to the Reef, Daintree and so on, so I recommend to book through them as they charge day trips to room bill at check out; very convenient.

Pros:

+ Large rooms with good amenities
+ Fully equipped kitchen
+ Comfortable king size bed
+ Double shower at bath room
+ Washing machine and tumble dry
+ Large balcony
+ Quiet room, no disturbances at night
+ Nice pool area with jacuzzi.
+ Management at reception were very friendly and helpful.
+ Palm Cove had surprisingly good restaurants.

Cons:

- View from room.
- Hotel is a bit away from the beach, but only 200 meters.

Great comfortable resort, pool is very relaxing, being able to cook in a fully set out kitchen was a bonus. Tavern is next door, fantastic places to eat within 3 minutes walk.

Hosts were very good, gave us heaps of info on what to do, very friendly.

Recommend for a great romantic or family getaway.

Was a bonus to hire our car from the resort, the airport pick up/drop off allowed us to maximise our time.

  • Liked — The hosts, so friendly.
  • Disliked — Relaxing, better then home, view fantastic

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.

  • Liked — Cleanliness and spaciousness
  • Disliked — Huge balconies but with no view

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!!!
