Overpriced, underserviced. The pool was almost unusable with so many leaves the bottom was invisible. At a tropical location, the pool should be star of the show ! For almost $300 per night I expect a lot more than this place offered.

On the Palm Cove esplanade. Management is excellent for this property that is quiet at this time of the year. Ten points to the Manager, who is just a very efficient and friendly person. Dishwasher in our room was not working when we arrived, nor was it working the day we left 7 days later. I asked constantly. I was...

Excellent location. Beautiful surroundings. Very near from the beach ( 500 meters to the safe swimming area, though). Spacious rooms with good facilities for cooking and washing clothes. The swimming pool and the garden are very beautiful. A couple of things were annoying, though. We arrived late in the evening and it was dark. I found it uncomfortable and dangerous...

Being Christmas, not all restaurants were open however we were happy with what was available to us. The hotel room itself was amazing, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and a lounge/dining area, along with a balcony overseeing...

We stayed at this hotel a number of years ago and it was great but on our return a number of things had changed. The main change was that half the hotel is now used for permanent residents. This means that the facilitis have become tired looking and smelly due to the amount of cooking in the rooms. The hotel...

Initial impressions weren't great - first off, the signs all referred in big letters to Rockford (we were looking for Grand Mercure) and then to the Drift Apartments. We turned up quite late and there was nobody on reception. After wandering around looking confused (was this just the apartments or also the hotel?), finally a guy who was sat on...

Another great stay, we have stayed at Grand Mercure Rockford Palm Cove on a number of occasions, love the closeness to the beach (just across the road), the fantastic pool, and the great relaxed atmosphere. Close to lovely restaurants and shops. We will certainly be returning in the future.
