                I really like the staffs there. They are so helpful and pleasant. The set up at Reef Retreat Palm Cove is very nice and convenient. The small vacation town is very quiet and lovely. I highly recommend this place for anyone for vacation at Cairns.

                This is our third stay at the Reaf Retreat and we have enjoyed them all and hope to visit again in the future. I would recommend this hotel as the most peaceful and relaxing hotel on the East Coast. See you next time. Richard Lavender

                Clive, Mary and Sarah are fantastic and do everything they can to make your stay very special. Had a great time immersed in the wonderful nature of the tropics !

                The jacuzzi style bath tub

                No house keeping during your stay. You can pay $ 45 if you want your room to be cleaned and your sheet to be changed.

                I liked the tropical design of the hotel. The rooms were furnsihed in a contemporay yet relaxed manner with a tropical theme. Timber ventiains and slats added to the privacy and ambiance of the venue. Provate balcony overlooked the secluded pool and just a minute's walk to the beach and esplanade featuring great dining and shopping. I will definately be back to this resort and bring my husband this time!

                The shower in my room was a bit hit and miss. The hot water wasn't very hot...but then again I'm from cold old Melbourne! I guess it was measured for the temperature of the region.

              • Older travelers
                5.0

                Reasonably close to restaurants and beach

                Ground floor unit, but had to climb steps to go up to a landing leading no where, and then down to the unit. Kitchenette was in an open area which was not too much of a problem in winter but could be in summer with mosquitoes. Louvre windows were not screened either. Noisy sprinkler system came on a 12pm each night waking me up with a jolt. One cake of soap was in the bathroom for 2 people for 2 nights, no teatowel or washing up cloth of any sort. Car park was too far from unit which would be unpleasant in rain.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                convenient location off the front street

                No views of the water or the hillsides

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                The outdoor kitchenette on the balcony was great. Lovely spot to sit and enjoy breakfast or an afternoon cheese platter which we did alot. Very romantic.

              • Couple
                9.2

                Location was excellent...also very quiet while just one block off the main road along the beach; free parking and nice in room jacuzzi tub. Kitchen has basic amenities (microwave, small refrigerator). Bbq area/deck and pool was nice lots of shade from palms.

                Pool is shaded - never any sun no matter what time of the day! Cannot enjoy the sun!

                8.8

                It's very cosy, has lots of room, is nicely decorated & perfectly located (close to everything and yet quiet), ... practical, nice, spacious, light.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Great location - close to the beach, restaurants and shops; very helpful staff; great pool surrounds - under a canopy of trees and palms; lovely rooms - ceiling fans + wooden shutters

              • Couple
                10.0

                The rooms were amazing and very romantic. Loved the semi outdoor kitchen and the lights over the pool

                What I particularly liked was the convenience, close to coffee, restraurants, walking, beach, easy access to all of the above
