After we checked in at the Silvester Palms up the road we felt that we needed a drink as the tripadvisor description was definitely more flattering than the reality. Walking down the Esplanade we saw a number of nice hotels and decided to simply walk in and see what was available as it is still low season. One look at...

We stayed at this appartment and were very excited as we were told that it was modern and in the Grand Mecure Resort. Expecting the high standards of the Mecure name we were shocked to find that the unit was not clean and that the owner had not even had the analog TV changed over. The unit is in a...

I had stayed here 3 years previously and had a lovely time. Both times I was staying as a private apartment guest. This time I was treated like an unwelcome visitor. The air con quality has gone downhill dramatically, there was one night I was so uncomfortable I couldn't sleep. You can only use appliances after 6pm at night. The...

Overpriced, underserviced. The pool was almost unusable with so many leaves the bottom was invisible. At a tropical location, the pool should be star of the show ! For almost $300 per night I expect a lot more than this place offered.

On the Palm Cove esplanade. Management is excellent for this property that is quiet at this time of the year. Ten points to the Manager, who is just a very efficient and friendly person. Dishwasher in our room was not working when we arrived, nor was it working the day we left 7 days later. I asked constantly. I was...

Excellent location. Beautiful surroundings. Very near from the beach ( 500 meters to the safe swimming area, though). Spacious rooms with good facilities for cooking and washing clothes. The swimming pool and the garden are very beautiful. A couple of things were annoying, though. We arrived late in the evening and it was dark. I found it uncomfortable and dangerous...

Stayed here for 2 nights over Christmas, the staff were fantastic, the pool and spa just beautiful and the beach and views just breathtaking. Being Christmas, not all restaurants were open however we were happy with what was available to us. The hotel room itself was amazing, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and a lounge/dining area, along with a balcony overseeing...
