We have just arrived home after another wonderfully relaxing week at Melaleuca. Margaret & Stephen are wonderful hosts. We have considered between Port douglas and palm cove many times and whilst port douglas is a nice place to visit and spend some money in the shops, which is always nice. Palm cove just has the edge for relaxation. Melaluca is... More

These apartments are located in the centre of the main strip at Palm Cove, making access to restaurants and other businesses very easy - no car needed. The apartments are directly opposite the beachfront and we could see and hear the waves from the kitchen, lounge room and balcony. If you're wanting glitzy, fancy accommodation, this is not for you.... More

We recently stayed here for 4 nights. We had a 1 bedroom apartment which included a balcony & beach views. The apartment was self-contained, spacious and clean. We were travelling with a 14 month old so the benefit of having a washing machine and dryer was very handy. There was also air conditioning in both the lounge & bedroom however... More

Great hotel across the road from palm cove beach. In centre of town surrounded by palm trees. Very friendly owners. This was our 2nd time staying here and was just as good as last time. Rooms are big and spacious. Only flaw is there is no ramp or lift for suitcases, only flights of stairs. We will be back again.

Wow! My husband and I traveled through Australia for our honeymoon and stayed at 5 different hotels/resorts. This one was by far the best- we LOVED the Melaleuca. The resort itself is attractive, with a lovely courtyard complete with palms and a beautiful pool. The staff was very friendly and accommodating- we arrived 3 hours before check-in time and asked...

Thank you for your comments. It is great to think we have been a positive for your honeymoon. Hope you come back with the kids one day! Thanks also to all our recent reviews. We have been changing a few things in the gardens and have been through a very dry spell so lots of watering. We have also extended... More

This was the perfect location for us, family of 3 with 1 x 6yo. Easy access to the beach directly across the road. Our son loved the pool with its varied depths and rocky outcrops generating great imaginary play. Short walk to a wide range of cafes, bars, restaurants. Very relaxed atmosphere at the hotel as well as Palm Cove... More

We just came back from our 2 night stay at the Melaleuca. We have stayed at the hotel once before and it is now the place we stay when we want to come to Palm Cove. The location is ideal, especially being able to simply walk across the road and have the beach right there. It is within walking distance... More

Melaleuca resort is a great location to stay in. The rooms are provided with all facilities, facing the beach, with a lovely small pool to relax in. Ideal for families. But what we appreciated most was the attention from Margaret, and all the help and recommendations she has been providing so we could maximize our stay in Palm Cove. A... More
