“Absolutely wonderful!”

We have just returned from a 2 1/2 month stay at this property. Our experience was wonderful. Janice, the owner, is the most responsive owner we have ever dealt with. This relates both to her very timely responses to emails to arrange the rental and to attention to any issues or questions we had while we were there.

The condo itself is well appointed and tastefully decorated. The kitchen has all the amenities one could want: stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge and two types of coffee makers. Lots of dishes, cutlery, utensils, glasses including plastic ones for at the pool, and many pots and pans. The living room has lots of comfortable seating, and a large TV. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king bed, a closet with lots of hangers and other places as well to put clothes, etc. The bathroom attached to the master bedroom has a washer and dryer as well as a tub/shower, sink etc. The second bedroom has a flexible bed arrangement, either two twins or one king and its own TV. It has its own very large shower and bathroom as well as a small fridge.

The resort itself is lovely. Four pools, including a 50 meter lap pool which I used often to do laps. The gardens/vegetation are also lovely. There is a very clean BBQ for all guests to use. Parking for cars is mostly undercover so cars aren't ovens when you get into them.

The resort itself is very quiet. Can't hear road noise and guests seem very respectful of not bothering others. We were there in the off season and while there were other people at the resort, most often we would have the pool to ourselves!

The Palm Cove Esplanade is a short, 600 meter walk away. Lots of restaurants to choose from although many of them were fairly high end.

Grocery shopping is at Clifton Beach, a five minute car ride or short bus ride. The mall there has a grocery store, bakery, butcher, and liquor store so everything one could want.

Palm cove as a location was perfect. Sitting between Cairns and Port Douglas, it was the perfect location for going either north into Port Douglas and further to the rain forest or south to Cairns and the waterfall route or west up to the Atherton Tablelands.

We would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a very comfortable place to stay, either as a couple or with children.

Palm Cove is an ideal place for a holiday and the accommodation we had at Mango Lagoon Resort helped to make the whole experience perfect.

“Awesome location & Very relaxing”

This apartment has an awesome location - just a short walk from the car park, no stairs and you can almost step straight from the outside patio area to the main swimming lagoon. It is beautifully furnished (the king bed was so comfortable) and has everything that you could need plus a lot of extra touches like a DVD collection, pool toys and books to read. Felt like a home away from home and was really suitable for a family with school-aged children - they had their own bedroom "retreat" complete with ensuite and a tv with a built-in DVD player so adults could relax in peace in the main apartment area. The resort was immaculate and has a gorgeous tropical garden that was filled with ginger blooms during our stay. It was just a short walk (about 10 mins) through a rear gateway to get to the restaurant strip/Palm Cove Beach. The owner of the apartment is extremely helpful and provided excellent communication during the booking process and in the lead-up and following our stay.

Beautiful presented two bedroom apartment which had all the inclusions needed (and more) and a really helpful owner when needed. The apartment is within a resort with all amenities including 4 swimming pools and tropical grounds. Perfect location to see the attractions along the Cairns coast. You would need a car and we found Redspot a great company to deal with. Thank you Janice for the use of your abode!

“Superb apartment in a quality resort”

This was our second stay at mango lagoon resort, in the Tropical Ginger apartment, which is owner managed, I believe you receive more in an owner managed apartment eg massive DVD library, coffee machine etc. The resort staff still look after you, don't be put off by owner managed!

Owner was great to deal with, honest, always quick to respond, bond returned promptly.

The apartment has 2 great bedrooms each with own bathroom, full kitchen, lounge, dining, TVs, DVD players, fully air cond and ceiling fans too. Outdoor table & chairs. Excellent furnishings, very clean throughout.

Quality apartment in a massive but quiet resort which has 4 huge lovely swimming pools. The apartment is located downstairs, there are gorgeous tropical gardens and pathways thoughout, it's just wonderful.

Communal free BBQ (self cook). Share dining area near the pool which anyone can use, not just for dining but for all types of gatherings.

There is an inexpensive continental breakfast available in the 'restaurant' (share dining area), no hot food included hence inexpensive but good healthy choices to start the day.

Helpful reception staff, we booked a few tours through reception.

Palm Cove is a fantastic little village, close to Cairns and Port Douglas. We stocked up on groceries in a supermarket at Clifton Beach, just 5 minutes drive away.

Make sure you hire a car at Cairns airport so you can really enjoy all Cairns and surrounding areas has to offer. Very easy driving throughout and beyond Cairns.

Stayed April 2015 as a family with a young teenager, who prefer high quality, self contained, quiet accommodation.

Ibooked for a girls week away. The two bedroom apartment is so spacious and well equipped. It could easily accommodate 2 couples, a family or a girls 'getaway' as we did. Very clean and lots of extras like the coffee machine and plunger ( essential for Melbourne visitors!), a cupboard full of DVDs and an iPod dock. The resort is just lovely with 4 pools and while we were there, very few people around, so often had the whole pool to ourselves. Outside patio area, reasonably private and close to the entrance of 2 pools. Also day spa about 20 metres away. Easy walking to The Esplanade, shops and restaurants, once we discovered the back entrance!
I usually like to stay at Port Douglas, but now I think Palm Cove is much more central, particularly if you want to go to other tourist attraction. Easier to get to other Nth Cairns beaches such as Holloway's Beach for markets and afternoon drinks rights on the beach. I would definitely stay here again.

We have just spent 2 weeks at Tropical Ginger and found the apartment perfect for our needs. There were 2 couples and plenty of room for all of us. The apartment is spacious, clean and has everything that you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The resort is beautiful and the pools are lovely as is all the gardens. Clifton shopping centre is a 5 minute drive and we were able to get everything we needed for our stay. Thank-you Janice we had a very relaxing holiday and will be very happy to recommend your lovely apartment to all our friends and family.
