“Will be back for sure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We stayed at the Melaluca resort for a week at the beginning of June 2013.
Margaret was very friendly and made us feel so welcome!
The apartments themselves were very clean and tidy and exactly what we needed for our stay. We made good use of the kitchen as we didn't want to eat out every night.
As far as value for money goes I would defiantly recommend Melaluca. It's right on the beach and right in the heart of the Palm Cove strip.
The Coles supermarket is a 2 minute bus ride back towards Cairns.
Palm cove was great, not too busy and had a better vibe than Port Douglas.
All in all, it was a special place and we will definitely be back to stay in Palm Cove at Melaluca.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March, part of a 4 week tour of Eastern Australia. We had originally stayed 4 nights at a Hotel in Cairns & decided to drive up to Palm Cove on the recommendation of a local we met on the flight up from Melbourne. What a beautiful location,

After looking at the Hotels on the front we came across the Melaleuca. It was exactly what we were looking for. Really comfortable ,clean 1 bed apatment with everything you needed including washing & drying facilities. Plus the view! Stunning!

We loved our stay here & wished we could have spent our whole time in Queensland at the Melaleuca, taking into account that the place we stayed in Cairns was the same price, but nowhere near as good.

As others have reported, Margaret & Stephen were very pleasant & helpful.

Other than the above, I would simply concur with all the positive things others have said about this place.

We stayed here for two weeks and were so happy with location, rooms and service. The rooms are comfortable and you can hear the waves crashing into the shore, the palms swaying in the breeze or the birds singing wherever you are in your apartment. Everything was available to cook in-house or use BBQ. Pool is gorgeous and it's in the middle of all other accommodation on the strip so very convenient. Thanks to the great managers for their help in booking tours and recommending places to visit. We will be back.

This was our third visit to Melaleuca resort and after staying at some 5 star places in Port douglas and Palm cove I have to to say that this place is the best. Margaret & Stephen are fantastic hosts and the place is so well kept and peaceful. These are all 1 bed apartments so you do not tend to get many children, well behaved children are great mind you but for couples this is a good thing. The apartments are very very clean and have everything, even a window in the bathroom ! The tropical gardens are just beautiful, so well loved and tended and provide a great buffer from the sea breezes. You can here the sea from everywhere in the grounds and see it from most apartments. It was unfortunate for us that we could only stay 2 days this time however the next time we visit TNQ we will not stay any where else. If there is any constructive criticism I could offer and and it would be that I would like some new outdoor furniture. As the view is lovely and its such a lovely place to sit and have a drink and food more comfortable chairs would be be very welcome ! and nice new pair with padded cushions and a small table. Lovely place, great experience....lovely pool, we will be back :)

we were honeymooners at the of our 5 week trip up the east coast of australia. after all our adventures, we wanted to spend our last week in australua relaxing. we couldn't have picked a better spot.
the apartments are located in the middle of the esplanade, next to alk the excellent restuarants. we had a top floor apartment which we could see the ocean and swim pool underneath. the apartment was very clean, had all the utensils, towells, iron board..... everything we needed. steve and margarette were very helpful and friendly. we felt very relaxed at meleaca and palm cove, exactly what we looked for.

Margaret is such an incredible host, our stay at Melaleuca was amazing. Prime location in Palm Cove with great views. Extremely helpful with whatever we needed, including tours, rental cars the works, will most certainly only stay with them whenever we journey back to Palm Cove.
Thanks Marg and team for such a memorable experience, see you in 12 months.
Andrew and Bianca :)

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while visiting Palm Cove Beach. Our room, on the top floor, faced the ocean and we spent many hours with drinking and eating on our balcony while listening to the birds and watching the ocean waves lap against the shoreline. The pool and gardens were an oasis and it was difficult to decide where we would rather be - in the ocean or in the pool - so we did both. Every morning we walked along the ocean and then spent delicious hours in the beautiful pool. Several times I saw spectacular butterflies fly by. Melaleuca Resort is very central to the whole of the strip and it is easy to walk anywhere from here. We always felt comfortable asking Margaret and Stephen any question and we could always count on them to make arrangements we asked for. The units are clean and well equipped to ensure a home-like stay. When we return to Palm Cove Beach, we will definitely stay here again - no question. Why look elsewhere?!
