Just a block from the main street along the beach. This was the best value for money we found in Palm Cove. We had a nice little one bedroom suite. The decor is a bit dated, though in a way that seemed to recur in Australia at several hotels (all light green and pink -- very 90's to my thinking). Having the kitchenette was very nice.
The pool area was very nice, as was the covered outdoor barbeque and seating area. Lovely place to bring back some drinks (a liquor store is quite close and a general store/convenience store is nearby too).
This is the tropics, so certain things that often freak out hotel guests are quite unavoidable. Adjust your expectations. The hotel staff dealt with it well.
You don't NEED a car. Palm Cove is the end of a regional bus line that goes into Cairns. The busses run fairly frequently and it's about a 25 minute trip each way.
The beach is very close, as I said. But be aware that for swimming, Palm Cove is not the best town. The area enclosed by jellyfish nets is quite small. The beach is still quite beautiful if you just plan to sit and relax though.
