I have just returned from a 12 day stay at Alamanda by Lancemore resort, half of the stay accompanied by my older Mum. We stayed in a 2 bedroom beach view apartment on the second floor (Building 1, Suite 17) booked through AirBnb. For a significantly cheaper price I would recommend booking through AirBnb, our apartment cost much less when compared to the hotel website. Similar to other reviews, I wouldn’t consider this a 5 star resort, it is a self-contained hotel so even if you stay under the umbrella of the hotel itself, there is no daily maid service, concierge, pillow menu, blockout blinds, no elevators, everyday spa access, mini bar, room service or pool bar. It’s important people are aware of this prior to booking IF booking through the hotel directly. As I used AirBnb I was aware of this. As a self-contained hotel, there are many positive aspects but some negative also. The location and views are simply the best in Palm Cove, overlooking the picture perfect palm cove (which is absolutely full of rainbow lorikeets, swallows and bats at night) the town is renowned for. I would return simply for the view and location! I honestly felt like there was no where else better to spend the time than on the balcony or by the pool. It is the only resort with direct beach access on the whole strip and the adults only pool is located right next to the water under the palms. With lots of families staying at the resort, it was bliss being in a pool only for adults. The balconies of the beach view apartments are private and being brick you can’t hear your neighbours if they’re also using theirs. The apartments are spacious and comfortable, with fans and air conditioning in every room. The hotel gardens and magical and well maintained, they’re lovely to take a stroll around. The major negative is that the building has no elevators, which can make it tricky if you have toddlers, lots of luggage or in our case an older parent. From the underground parking lot to the bedrooms and bathrooms it’s a total of 4 flights of stairs (5 if located on the upper floor). My Mum struggled and for anyone disabled, elderly, with respiratory issues or out of shape, this isn’t appropriate accomodation unless on the ground floor. Overall, I would return solely for the view and location alone - it’s just perfect. For those considering booking, I would recommend trying AirBnb, choosing a beach view apartment (however taking the stairs into consideration) while also considering the time of year to visit as the beach is closed for many months due to stingers and box jelly fish. If you’re a palm tree lover like me, this is the place for you!…
We went here for our honeymoon in March for 4 nights. We originally booked the one bedroom ocean view room. Upon check-in we were upgraded to the 4 bedroom ocean view room. The room was massive. The view is breathtaking. Its hand down the best spot on the strip. The staff were Friendly, the pools were nice. The spa was great and the complimentary breakfast at Nunu's everyday was even better. Will definitely be back.
Our beachfront apartment in Alamanda Palm Cove worked out to be a great choice for three friends to spend a few days. The apartment was a great size. There were plenty of restaurants around and the beachfront yoga was a treat. The staff were incredibly helpful and always cheerful. Would certainly return.
This colonial beauty is the place to be if you are visiting the Palm Cove. The breathtaking views from the Sea View Suites teamed with service that went above and beyond sealed the deal for a revisit. Tom and Daniel at the front desk had been top notch at the time of booking throughout organising the room when we arrived way earlier than the standard check-in time.
We stayed there last night because we were booked into Nu Nu restaurant for a lunch event 9 Feast of the beast) we were given a great deal. Lovely clean well furnished room with great water views. Will definitely stay there again next time I visit Palm Cove.
