“Excellent resort Good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2007

The apartments were very clean and comfortable with all the ammenities you would expect. The hosts Stee and Sandy are friendly and ready to assist with any needs while not being intrusive.
The pool and BBQ facilities were in excellent condition and provided friendly common meeting area for all the guests.
While the property is not directly on the beach it is away from any noise or disturbance and is very close to all the facilities at Palm Cove. (Beach, pub and shops all within a couple of mnutes walk)
The apartments offer excellent value for money in a location is close enough to all the attractions around Cairns withou the tourist crowds. I will be certainly returning to these apartments.

We've just returned from a wonderful 3 week holiday in Australia. We stayed in the Palm Cove Tropic Apartments for 4 nights over Christmas & thoroughly enjoyed our stay.The apartments were very spacious,clean,well equiped and set in a beautiful,relaxed enviroment.The pool was delightful and there's also a BBQ area with the facilities including sink and fridge etc. Steve and Sandy the owners were very friendly & helpful & recommended places to eat & places to visit. We would not hesitate recommending these apartments to friends & family,in fact we hope to stay there again when we revisit Australia sometime in the future.

Many thanks Steve & Sandy for making our stay most enjoyable.

Best Wishes
The Welsh Gang.

Stayed December 2006

I have just returned from sending Christmas with my elderly parents at Palm Cove, North Queensland. We stayed at Palm Cove Tropic Appartments. They were some of the best presented appartments I have stayed in for a long time. Both Steve and Sandy made us feel welcome from the time we arrived until we left, they were both genuinely friendly and helpful. Giving us all the assistance we needed and more.
The appartment are very well maintained; spotless throughout, with all the facilities anyone could want. We had two rooms side by side with either views of the rainforest or pool area. The fans had been left on, so that when we walked in the rooms were pleasently cool and inviting. All the equipment in the rooms were in working order, clean and well maintained.
The pool area was presented in a welcoming way; with deck chairs and tables arranged around in convient positions but not on top of each other. The pool was maintained to a top standard; crystal clean water, clean under foot, with lovely little areas you could sit in the shade. The bababcue area was also spotless with every amenity you could want, BBQ tools, oils, paper towel, sauces etc.
Overall I would recomend Palm Cove Tropic Appartments to any of my friends. Because of the atmosphere, friendly attitude of Steve and Sandy, and the overwelming presentation and facilites they have. One of the last things I said to my Mum and Dad as I got back on a plane for home; 'Make sure you go there on a regular basis as it is one of the best place I have stayed at in a long time."
