Have visited this location many times, eating, buying and have played golf at The Palms twice. On this latest visit we were fortunate to stay with friends for a few days in one of the upmarket gated communities. The views across to The Pines golf course were superb with birdlife and dozens of kangaroos. However our highlight for this visit... More

We attended the Chinese New Year Event that was listed on the Sanctuary Cove Website with a number of child/family friendly stalls/activities being listed. We attended with friends who have previously been to this event. On arrival, we found a large empty marque, the Lion dancers (as listed) and that was it. None of the listed stalls/eats/activities were there. Very... More

Up early from Brisbane for 18 holes. Course was very tough and in great condition. Will definitely be back again. Golf was followed up by breakfast served by welcoming friendly staff and a great menu! Best savoury mince I've had hands down. Great experience overall.

My husband and I had a lovely weekend here and can't wait to come back. Our room was beautiful and the heated lagoon pool and spa were great. By far the best thing was the people. The service was exceptional from reception, bar staff, wait staff - everyone we encounted!

Lots of restaurants, boutiques, and boats. A great place to shop for fashion or nick-nacks. Arrive by land or sea, the locals get about in golf buggies

This used to be one of my favourite destinations when visiting the gold coast. But it has gone downhill a little bit. We specifically turned up to go on our little cruise that takes you around all the canals and gives you a guided tour of the cove. But I was informed it doesn't operate unless it has 10 people...

We love going to Sanctuary Cove, there are some great restaurants there (George's and Black Angus specifically) and it's generally a great place to just spend an afternoon. Such a relaxed and scenic spot and it seems to be growing but hopefully keeps its low keep appeal that we enjoy.

A lot of wealth and botox in this place, but a very nice marina. We didn't stay and dine at any of the places, as they didn't open till late and where on the expensive side. The playground there was a big hit!

Such a nice spot for a quick weekend drive and lunch. Nothing beats walking around the marina on a warm day, admiring all the boats and eating good food. Only a short 45 minutes from Brisbane it's worth the trip!
