We stayed in the 3 bedroom courtyard rooms and it was ideal. We went with my husbands parents from the UK and they were in heaven! The setup with the courtyard with table in the middle was perfect for our situation. The courtyard room is also right next to the pool so perfect for our young children wanting to go...

These apartments are very special. They are large ,very bright with large windows. The rooms are expansive , well furnished and very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The pool is large with excellent surrounds. We are already planning our next sojourn north in October.

We stayed here for three nights in May 2016 and couldn't have been more delighted with our choice. We'd already spent three days in Port Douglas, but coming to Palm Cove and staying here was just the best decision. The apartments are spacious, very clean and our one had a beautiful outlook of the lake and pool. Probably the only...

My daughter and I enjoyed a fabulous three nights in apt suite 23 in March 2017. The hotel is easy to find and right next to the beach in Palm Cove, within 50 steps of the restaurants and cafes that line the beach. The location -- for eating, excursions, and quiet nights -- was perfect. Although we had booked all...

We had not been to Far north Queensland for 16 years when the children were travelling with us. Now aging travellers we were looking for somewhere closer to Sydney and what a pleasing choice this apartment complex was. The apartment was quiet and spacious. It overlooked the lagoon and was super. The managers were knowledgeable of local attractions and made...

Spent Christmas at Sanctuary - flew in from Melbourne to a most welcome tropical climate. Neat, clean, well organised airport and car pickup was a breeze. Short trip from airport to Cairns on a highway you will become very used to. Arrival was something special. Richard and Karin were friendly, open, direct and funny. The apartment was beautiful and the...

A family vacation and first time in QLD. The Sanctuary location is perfect, just off the north end of main beachfront esplanade, private and quiet yet close to everything, only a few minute walk to the bus stop for local transportation access to Cairns. We didn't hire a car, using public transit and arranged transfers for activities worked great. The...

This is my 2nd review of this wonderful Hotel, the first was a few years ago. Surprisingly the Sanctuary has not aged at all, only become better. I didnt realise just how massive the 3 bedroom apartment actually is. After a few overseas trips in very small rooms, this place feels like home. Everything was so clean and everything worked....
