Great place. Great location on the beachfront. Close to everything you need. Great pool and gardens. The units are well equipped. Great value for money. Margaret (manager) was really helpful and could not do enough for guests. We will return if in Palm Cove again.

Enjoyed a week at Melaleuca Resort in July. Centrally located in the middle of the main street of Palm Cove. Modern with all facilities. And good value for money. Rooms are protected from any noise. Fantastic view of the ocean. Managers Margaret & Stephen couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable. There are no lifts but the rooms are... More

This is a great place to stay. If you are looking for trendy furnishings and fittings don't look here. It is clean, plain and simply has all you want or need in a resort. Where else do you get your host offering to take you shopping when you are ready after you arrive. The position is perfect, right in the... More

A bit perplexed at the the photo for this Trip Advisor Post as it is not Melaleuca Resort? It doesn't have a golf course or look anything like the photo. They are one bedroom apartments only so if there is more than two of you it will be difficult to accommodate you. Basic amenities in a great location.

Thank you Michael R for your review. The pic was changed a while ago and we have been trying to get it changed back. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and our location. We do have a competition golf course close by but certainly not on this site. Thanks again, Steve and Marg More

Self contained one bedroom units, with 2 units in each "block" sharing a large balcony via a central staircase. No lifts, so you'll need to be relatively fit to negotiate stairs to the 2nd level, especially if carrying luggage. Only 24 units at this resort, so it has more of an intimate feel to it. Full kitchen facilities (fridge, microwave,... More

It's a small resort, most apartments have sea views, all based around a lovely small pool (with little inbuilt spas), in beautifully landscaped gardens. We had a top floor sea view apartment - there are only 1 bed apartments in this complex. Access is via stairs (concrete), no lifts. There is an undercover car space below the apartments, again accessed... More

Hi GeraldineBondiBeach and thankyou for your review. Yes I agree with your comments on the noise of children in the pool. We try to monitor the pool noise as when it gets too loud, it affects the comfort of all the guests staying. Also there is a safety factor involved when a fall or call for help cannot be heard...

Last week I stayed with my wife and 2yo daughter at Melaleuca Resort and we had a fantastic time. The Melaleuca is right in the middle of the Palm cover strip right on the beach, a quick stroll to any of the great cafes, restaurants and the beachside playground!

Upon check-in at Melaleuca Resort, the owners gave us a wealth of information about the area and local dining options and kindly helped bring our luggage to an upstairs room, which had a great view from the balcony overlooking the resort grounds and the beach across the road.
