My partner and I spent 8 nights in apartment 22. This is the small single bedroom separate apartment next to the pool. Being school holidays we were worried about noise but there was none. The pool was empty by about 8pm every night and the lights are turned out at 10pm anyway. The only noise was from the abundant wildlife....

We stayed at Sanctuary for the second time in September. The grounds are lovely, great pool and fabulous apartment. We had 5 people in a 3 bedroom apartment. The full kitchen and bifold doors make it a very spacious apartment for a family of 5.

Stayed 9 nights in August with kids. Had a 3 bedroom which was huge - two bathrooms and good sized bedrooms. Underground parking with lift direct up to room. Great location just behind beach. The pool is gorgeous and warm which was a big plus in August, most pools in Australia aren't heated and this can be chilly. It seemed...

We have just finished a very relaxing week long stay in the sanctuary. We were blown away with the facilities and apartment , it was just like home from home. The staff were so helpful, pleasant and friendly. You are a short walk from the beach and main shops/ restaurants and navigating public transport to access the supermarket was easy....

We stayed at Sanctuary Palm Cove from 17 - 23 June 2013 in apartment 8. Despite only booking a 1-bed apartment, we were put in a luxurious 3-bed, 2 bath apartment with huge lounge / diner and 3 fab balconies.

We have stayed in apartment 18 for 2weeks, and have found the accomodation met our needs perfectly. As a couple with 3 kids, the space was fabulous. You could have time to yourself and sit quietly or enjoy the company of everyone else. The kid was well appointed with everything you need, including dishwasher and normal sized fridge/freezer. The provided...

We had four nights here in early May 2013 and would highly recommend Sanctuary. The reception staff were helpful and friendly and our apartment was modern, well appointed, very clean, and situated near the large 25 m pool. Lovely surroundings with many trees and a large attractive pond in the grounds. It is just a very short walk to the...
