annehY7645ZR Couples - TripAdvisor review

From the moment we set foot on the wide timber walkway leading to the open air entrance we knew we had found our special place. The Reef House is a little slice of magic hidden amongst 300 year old Melaleuca (paperbark) trees, and yet located right opposite the beach in Palm Cove. Designed to induce relaxation, the Reef House exudes an effortless old-world charm where all that seems to matter to every single staff member is the comfort and happiness of the guests. The amenities are superb. Guests are spoilt for choice with two large private heated pools both flanked by tropical gardens - one is even a magnesium pool! Also, simply reach out and press the buzzer on the little table next to you if you are hungry and a poolside waiter will bring drinks and delicious food. Quite honestly, the cuisine is superb! Included are delicious Sorbets served poolside at 3pm, canapés and punch served two hours later, and a daily delectable breakfast too flavoursome to miss. And our luxurious room had a brand new bed, private outdoor kitchen and enormous private balcony. Thank you Cedric, Jess, and all the wonderful staff for making our stay so memorable - it was Magic!

watdal Couples - TripAdvisor review

We just spent 5 very relaxing days at the Reef House. The service was outstanding and the extras included in the price made the stay very special. Our veranda suite with direct access to the pool was well appointed and the outdoor area was huge with sun lounges, deck chairs and a table and chairs. We used that rather than the pool lounges after our swim although unlike a lot of places you never felt there were too many people around the pool ( or pools as there are more than one). Location was great. Right in the middle of many lovely restaurants and bars and the in house restaurant was lovely as well.

Bonjour WATDAL, Thank you very much for taking the time to express your positive feedback following your recent 5 day visit to the relaxing Reef House. With our unbelievable personalised service provided by our international team members and our numerous inclusions you are guaranteed a peaceful rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. We are all looking forward to welcoming you back again in the near future in our adult tropical resort! Please check our website and book direct : reservations@reefhouse.com.au Tropical regards, Cédric Lootvoet Luxury Concierge & The Reef House Family

Penny K Couples - TripAdvisor review

We looked long and hard for a place to enjoy a child free holiday. (We love children, we have 3 now adults in their 40’s), todays childrearing seems to condone loud, boisterous, behaviour with no concern for the rights of others for a peaceful environment. The week we spent at the Reef House was perfect. Accommodations are pristine, with old world charm. Cuisine varying daily, always a high standard. Staff are discreet and helpful. The Resort has ticked all boxes for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We’ll be back!

Bonjour Penny K, Thank you very much for your kind words on TripAdvisor following your recent visit to the marvellous Reef House. We are very happy to hear that your week with us in our old world charm boutique style retreat for adults was perfect and ticked all boxes! We are all looking forward to welcoming you back again next year for another unforgettable child free rejuvenation in paradise!
