“Best Holiday for Years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Loved my recent holiday at Melaleuca where I was able to relax and unwind but also managed to see some of the local attractions at my leisure. The apartments were clean and very comfortable, only a short walk to the lovely restaurants/cafes and all in all a very enjoyable experience. I thought the Coops were extremely helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were looked after. Close to the beach and great pool/garden on premises.

We chose this apartment based on reviews. It is in the perfect spot, in the middle of Palm Cove. Although comfortable and quiet, we cannot understand how it has a 4 star rating. The place is more like a "1980's" self contained unit than a 4 star resort.....
That said, it was nice and the pool and the sun lounges were always available. I am sure we read in an advertisement that it has 3 "in pool spa's " ,well 3 in pool water jets that create bubbles in the water is a better description... .
The apartment was clean and comfortable and really well equipped. Both Stephen and Margaret were friendly and always happy to help.
The wireless internet drops out quite often and we could not get reception from our 1st floor apartment, so spent most of my internet time sitting in the stairwell or "tethering" off my mobile.
So our stay was very nice but the expectation was much higher considering it is advertised as a 4 star "resort" with 3 in pool spa and free wireless internet.....

Room Tip: Top floor ocean view is the go, but poor wireless reception unless you are on ground floor...

We had never been to Palm Cove and chose this apartment based on reviews. It is in the perfect spot, in the middle of Palm Cove. We weren't after flashy, we wanted comfortable and quiet, and that's what we got. We thought as all apartments were one bedroom, that would reduce the amount of kids staying (we were travelling without kids on school holidays) and we were right. This meant we could use the pool and the sun lounges when we weren't at the beach. The apartment was clean and comfortable and really well equipped. We ate out the whole time (very expensive but great quality food). We were happy we could get a beach towel from reception, and took Stephen's advice for our day trip to the Daintree and about car hire. Both Stephen and Margaret were friendly and knowledgeable and we would dearly love to go back, preferably outside school holidays. While Palm Cove has plenty to offer even when packed to the gills, the few days we had before holidays were so peaceful, it was hard to adjust!

Room Tip: We stayed in 18, upstair in the middle and it was perfect. We looked onto the beautiful gardens from...

We had a very enjoyable stay, clean comfortable accomodation, ocean views, lovely pool area and gardens, great cafe (Rising Sun) right next door, supermarket one more door along opened at 7am for an early coffee. What more could you want in Palm Cove?

met and directed to undercover parking and our unit by very obliging Margaret who with Steven were always available and willing to assist. Could not ask for better location and amenities.Originally going to stay one night but because we loved it so much we decided to stay three nights.Definitely would recommend this resort.

My wife and I have stayed at Melaleuca Resort for the past four years and will do for the foreseeable future. We choose August as the weather is perfect, high twenties and no humidity. The accommodation is situated perfectly on the esplanade, within walking distance to everything. The hosts steven and margeret can't do enough to make your stay memorable. The apartments are spotless and well serviced, with everything you could possibly need. If you only come up this way once make sure you stay here, and you will be back again and again. The Palm Cove Tavern in Veivers street do monster 500gm steaks that are the best value in the "Cove". ENJOY!!! Pete & Deb, Melbourne.

Room Tip: If you love the sun go for rooms 3 or 4. The rest get shade in the afternoons

Stayed at the Melaleuca Resort Palm Cove for 5 days at the beginning of September.

Great position across from the beach and an easy stroll to some lovely restaurtants.

Service was friendly and efficient, accommodation spacious, clean and bright, Undercover car parking in the complex, beautiful gardens, pool and bbq area. Why would you stay any where else.
Will be back again. Thanks Margaret and Stephen.
