“Lovely Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I was only in Melaleuca Resort for 3 night but had a wonderful time. It is directly over the road from the beach, is situateds right amongst strip of excellent restaurants in Palm Cove and Margaret (manager) is friendly and helpful. Thre is a sheltered pool, and plenty of space for loungers.

My husband and I stayed at Melaleuca in October of this year and sadly it was only for a week. The resort is in the perfect location and the only place with wonderful lush tropical gardens. This allows you to lounge by the pool or in the garden in privacy but whilst also being able to still see and hear the sea.
It was great to be in a self contained apartment with everything you could need that allowed you to be independent, feel like you were at home but away on holiday at the same time.
Close to all the restaurants and the village it is the perfect home away from home.

The resort was perfect! The appartment was modern, clean, well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer facilities, free wi-fi, we overlooked the gardens/pool and had sea views. Stephen and Margaret were very welcoming and helpful, their local knowledge in helping us decide what to do. Bonus was on-site parking. I would definitely recommend the resort to anyone who is looking for somewhere to unwind and relax in the northern beaches area.

A lovely clean well positioned apartment rental.The managers are delightful and helpful.We stayed 6 days in a top floor apartment with nice view over the pool which is an unusual shape and well protected from the sea breezes.Only down side was no sun to speak of on the balcony so next time we would opt for an aparment further back but still with views of the sea and sun on the balcony.Parking also available which is a bonus.The pool is super and an unusual shape.

Room Tip: Choose a room further back.we had room 3,Large and very well equipped,but stairs to climb

Why would you stay anywhere else in Beautiful Palm Cove; when you have it all beachfront views, easy access, self contained apartment, exceptional botanical gardens surrounds, yes there is only one choice, Melaleuca. Marg & Steve the Managers extremely helpful and are very much locals, suggesting, assisting their local and Australian knowledge on to all that stay there. Yes one needs to stay here, as we do time and time again.

Room Tip: let Marg & Steve help you; all are very good positioned

This was our first visit to Palm Cove and Stephen and Margaret were very welcoming and helpful. Stephen drove us to the supermarket the day we arrived as we didn't have a car, which was really helpful! Margaret helped us plan our time in Palm Cove and booked tours for the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. The companies she recommended were both amazing. The resort is a lovely place to stay. It's right across the street from the beach and near lots of yummy restaurants and cafes. Our room was clean and tidy and the outside pool area was a great place to relax. The kitchen facilities were good and it has a washing machine and dryer. We had a fantastic time and didn't want to go home. We highly recommend staying here and getting help to plan your activites from Margaret and Stephen.

Melaleuca Resort is a perfect place to relax and unwind. The rooms are fresh, clean and spacious. This is a nice exception to the standard cramped, cookie-cutter type hotel. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is also a washer and dryer which was really great. The pool was wonderful and had a nice bubbly spa around the rocks. There were great restaurants just steps away. It is a perfect launch point to head out to the reef. You are treated exceptionally well by your hosts...we will definitely return!
