I will begin with the welcome. Staff was nice and met us at transport car outside. Took our bags and gave us a celebratory drink with a wet nap. After the long journey of travel it felt very nice to finally relax and begin to enjoy our vacation. Staff delivered luggage to our room. Check in was quick and easy.... More

Anyone looking for a relaxing, luxurious pre race venue prior to racing IRONMAN Cairns, look no further than the Alamanda. Adjacent swim start this hotel is amazing. Beautifully appointed, comfortable, relaxing and quiet. Just what you want for a no hassle pre race prep. We will be back in 2016.

My partner and I stayed here for three days, two nights.

Hi KevC0206, Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. At the Alamanda, where possible, we try to get guests in on the expected arrival time even if it is before the standard 2pm check-in time. Of course sometimes this is not possible if someone is still using the room and has yet to check out,... More

Location is pure perfection in a beachside village unlike any other in Australia. Pure bliss. Alamanda offers wonderful service and sublime resort surrounds. Add in the joy of a wonderful restaurant like NuNu and it makes a perfect holiday location.

From the moment we stepped into reception, we could not have asked for better service. We were welcomed with a cool fruit drink and an upgrade to a three bedroom suite.
