Palm Cove Tropic Apartments
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We had a short stay here for a friends wedding, only 5 nights, wished it was more but we will be coming back. It's a small complex in a real tropical setting. The apartment was roomy and very clean, comfy bed and nice verandah. We really liked the pool, it looked great at night. The wedding was on the beach just across the road less than a minute. Lots of restaurants all an easy walk, maybe 10 minutes to the furthest one. Staff were helpful and friendly. Highly recommended and good value from what we saw.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are very quiet and look over a creek and bush land. No lifts but there are onl...

We stayed for 6 nights in a 1 B/R Apt. which was well equipped & located at the rear of the property , with a balcony overlooking the pool & gardens , but quite private.
An excellent & well kept BBQ area was a bonus, as was the underground parking.The attractive pool area tends to be very shaded by huge ( attractive but messy ) trees.This may be good or bad !!
On the couple of occasions we needed to seek advice or assistance it was readily & happily provided.
The location is excellent , being just off the "main St " & only 5 minutes or so walk from the beach & restaurants.
This is not a 5 Star property , nor does it charge like one ! It is a clean & well kept place, to where we would happily return.

Great one bedroomed apartment in small attractive complex. Furnishings clean, bright and comfortable. Older style kitchen and bathroom but everything we needed was there. Liked the swivel TV for viewing in the bedroom or the lounge. The underground secure car park was a surprise bonus. Don't remember it being mentioned in the details. Overall excellent value for money and will definitely be back to enjoy more of Palm Cove and the surrounding area.

My husband and I came to Palm Cove for a Wedding and thorougly enjoyed our stay here. We received a very warm welcome from Wayne, the on-site manager. We had a 1 bedroom apartment on the first floor, which faced the street, but it was amazingly peaceful. The lounge is tasfefully decorated, the bedroom is spacious with a large mirrored wardrobe, side tables and a very comfortable bed, excellent, well equipped kitchen, a large bathroom/laundry, air cond and ceiling fans. The balcony is more than adequate and has a glass topped table and 2 chairs. The complex itself is set in very lush, tropical surroundings and has an amazing swimming pool. The location is perfect - close to the beach, shops and restaurants, spas and a bus stop nearby.
The only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer, but unfortunately, reality beckoned back in Adelaide!! Would certainly stay here again.

Great place -- we had a one bedder, it was clean -- the decor is a bit dated, but who cares? The pool area is second to none -- very shady and relaxing. The free parking is under ground which is nice in the tropics. Wayne is really nice and helpful. The only thing I would change (in every hotel that it exists) is the two twin beds pushed together to make a king -- on one wants to sleep on the crack! Other than that you can't go wrong with this place -- great value and perfect location.

So glad I found this! Great value and perfect location; close the beach, shops, restaurants, short walk to the grocery store, bus stop nearby, spas, etc. On-site staff able to make arrangement for tours; could even do a car rental on site.

Lucky we found Palm Cove; so much better than staying in Cairns (that was a quick half day trip for us).

We stayed in the most comfortable quiet one bedroom apartment for six weeks,January 2013 to mid February 2013. Very comfortable bed,excellent kitchen facilities,good size bathroom with shower,washing machine and drier.The lounge was well furnished and comfortable .there were ceiling fans in the lounge and bedroom .Also air conditioning in the lounge which also cooled the bedroom. Our balcony overlooked beautiful tropical plants which attracted butterflies and birds.
The apartments surround a beautiful swimming pool situated in well maintained tropical gardens.There is the most comfortable covered BBQ area with two large tables,sofas and arm chairs.
The sea is just a few minutes walk and a bus runs every 20 minutes to Cairns.The same bus will take you to Coles a large supermarket just 5 minutes away.
We are very happy to recommend these apartments to all age groups during the summer and winter months.
Everything is maintained to a very high standard by Wayne and Scott and we thank them most sincerely for a very happy stay.
