Friendly and helpful staff. Large suites with very well appointed kitchens, including full-sized fridge. It is possible to live very comfortably in these rooms. Grounds and facilities are well maintained, and excellent location, across from the beach.
Staff where very helpfull and pleasant to deal with, room was a bit noisey on 1st 2 nights as it was directly overlooking the barbeque area and some other guests where up late using this area. so if you want an early night sleep you might want to avoid room 212
Great interlude to visiting a nearby friend and children
Room a bit hot - pre set a/c to 22 was too warm for me
Excellent spot if you want to be walking distance ten minutes to beach or want quiet as resort was when I stayed.
Hayden at front desk was most helpful
The overall hotel pretty much fit its representation online. There were mixed reviews mostly regarding the room allocation and access to above ground rooms and that pretty much was consistent with our experience. The hotel was small, boutique, nothing too fancy but simple. It was nicely situated right across from a great beach in an area with lots of dining choices. The front desk is not open all night so if you are coming in from the Cairns airport you need to arrange for the combination to a key lockup. Avoid driving at night if you are from North America and uncomfortable with manual stick shifts and driving on the other side of the road! The roads are small, filled with chicanes and roundabouts that can throw a first-time traveller. Consider arranging for a shuttle pickup and then rent a care when in Palm Cove.
Manager, John was hospitable and helpful. The biggest disappointment was the room (105). It was ground floor and adjacent to a common area/foyer and the rubbish bins at the side. It had a skimpy door/lock that did not look or feel secure and there was no safe in the room which added to a feeling of no security. The room opened onto a claustrophobic and damp little courtyard ringed with a very high fence that prevented any air from entering the room. This caused the air in the room to be very close and stale. Air conditioning unit did not function optimally. Bed was poor on comfort.

Sanctuary is a really lovely location perfectly situated in Palm Cove. Fantastic apartments, really well appointed and comfortable and very close to beach and restaurants. A short drive (25mins) from Cairns Airport up the coast. Palm Cove is a small and very beautiful beachside town and has a lovely esplanade with lots of shops and restaurants. good access to other North Queensland attractions such as Kuranda and the rainforest.
