My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tropic Apartments. We had an apartment overlooking the newly redone deck (1 month old) and beautiful tropical pool area. The apartment decor is basic but tasteful. Dishes, appliances and electric kettle made the stay a little easier. The location was superb (next to a pharmacy, 3 minutes' walk to grocery/liquor...

Thanks to Wayne and co for a lovely stay. They were very accommodating from the get go. Everything was clean and well set up. Great value and so close to everything. The staff went above and beyond to ensure our stay was easy and enjoyable.

Comfortable rooms with balcony looking over pool area -good pool shaded by large trees so can be used all day. Right by the beach, and short walk along from restaurants and shops. Underground carpark with steps up to apartments -mind you do not stub your toe on the stone steps!! Reception could have been friendlier and more welcoming, but well... More

We booked these apartments based on trip advisor reviews and the good value for money compared to other places in Palm Cove. We were pleased in the value for money aspect. We booked from the UK which was easy and straightforward and airport transfers arranged for us and added to our bill. Transfers were quick and efficient. The apartment, one... More

Thank you for your review. Our refurbished apartments are a leap ahead of the standards rooms and represent even better value for money. We are working with the owners to update all of the rooms but this is an on-going process and will take some time to complete. Our BBQ area and pool deck have just been refurbished and looking...

The apartment was just like to the photos, chosen so we had a bit of space as my husband had some Uni reports to finish. On the walk to the apartment the new deck was pointed out and it was a fine job, what was not pointed out it was not finished... It started with the workmen putting a new... More

I am sorry to hear the upgrade works interrupted your stay. The nail gun was being used at an adjoining property and beyond our control. The workman on our site used a chainsaw for only five minutes, dug one hole and drilled 4 holes. We did not believe this amount of noise would have had an effect on your stay... More

Would recommend Palm Cove tropic apartments to any who are looking for a place to stay in Palm Cove. Whilst our room was a little dated it was still OK for a relaxing self catered holiday. We had a couple of issues needing to be addressed and management was OK in dealing with these. The beach is only a 2... More

We booked the apartments from the UK and received excellent service right from day 1. Wayne (the manager) sorted out our airport transfers with Beaches Meet and Greet (who were brill) and 2 day trips, 1 to the Great Barrier Reef and 1 to the Kurranda Railway and a trip on Sky Rail with International Travel (also brill).

The position is great. Short walk to beachfront, shops & restaurants. The manager (Wayne) was helpful and his local knowledge & advice was most useful. Small boutique type complex which offered good value for the price. The pool was in a lovely garden setting which included a practical BBQ area if you wanted that option. The kitchen was well-equiped &... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Since your visit we have had our pool deck replaced and opened a day spa on site. PS: we have sorted out the pans to work with the convection cook top, although the touch controls still represent a learning curve! More

We had a very nice second floor apartment. Reception was very helpful in arranging early morning transfer to the Cairns airport. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Definitely would stay at PCTA again.
