Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A great location for a relaxing time out. We enjoyed our time at Sanctuary Palm Cove with its unique setting one block back from the beach. We were a family of four with an apartment set amongst native trees and a Lilly pond. Comfortable beds, and a well appointed kitchen meant we had everything necessary for a great time away.

We spent a week with our daughter and 2 grandsons at the beautiful Sanctuary apartments. We had a well appointed, spotlessly clean and spacious 3 bedroomed apartment with a great well equipped kitchen. The children loved the pool and the location so close to the beach. Thank you so much to the wonderful staff for their great recommendations, especially for the Salt & Pepper food stall at the monthly Market! We will definitely be back

An apartment high amongst the trees in a really lovely quiet village - though with lots of restaurants. The service was superb, the apartment extremely well appointed and comfortable. If you want a base for your North Queensland adventure you could not do better than here.

We stopped in a amazing 3 bedroom apartment for 4 nights, they are to a very high standard with a modern design and furniture. Spotlessly clean, and managed by a lovely family that are so helpful. Very close to the beach and shops/restaurant's. Thank you for amazing stay.

As a local who has spent plenty of time at Palm Cove, I can't recommend Sanctuary highly enough. Beautifully designed and appointed villas, lovely hosts and a very peaceful vibe with only a short stroll to the beach and restaurants. Sanctuary is the perfect spot to unwind and relax .10/10.

Our second visit to Palm Cave and same accommodation. My wife loved it so much the first time, I HAD to book Sanctuary again ! The managers were sensational - thank you Gerhard Snr and Junior - the 3 bedroom apartment was as we remembered, almost as big as our house ! We will certainly be returning ...

You cannot fault the serenity of this place. The staff are incredibly friendly and approachable, the location is absolutely perfectly positioned within walking distance to all the restaurants and beach plus size of the apartment is very roomy. It has all the amenities included plus if we run out of anything or have any issues, the hotel management are straight on to it without a hassle. We’re really enjoying our relaxing honeymoon here, it’s so blissful.

The Sanctuary apartments are spotlessly clean, very large and beautifully appointed , nestled in lush gardens. With a large shady pool opposite the sandy, patrolled beach. The hosts were fabulous, friendly and informative. Gerhard helped us organise all of our tours based on his local knowledge and our requests. He also gave us advice on restaurants and sights to see off the tourist track. We hired fabulous electric bikes and rode to beautiful Trinity Beach. Palm cove is a tropical oasis with easy access to the rainforest and reef. We will definitely be back!

We are so fortunate to stay in Sanctuary. Beautifully appointed, very spacious apartments are very well managed and maintained by Labuschagne family. The apartment we stayed was spotless clean, everything was working perfectly and all facilities and amenities were at the highest standard. It’s very close to beach and restaurants but so quiet and all we hear is birds. Fantastic environment in nature where we can spot amazing wildlife at our door steps but in living in luxury, comfort and style. Gerhard Jr, the reception manager is the champion of local knowledge as well as nature and wild life. We could not discover and experience the area without his advise/recommendation. He knows what exactly we are looking for and always helped us to achieve what we want in most efficient way. I cannot thank him enough for what he did for us! Truly amazing place!
