Melaleuca Resort lives up to its #1 rating among hotels in Palm Cove. We welcomed the opportunity to stay in a well-appointed and very clean apartment-style lodging after staying in other traditional hotels. Air-conditioning, ceiling fans, washer/dryer, full fridge, oven, cooking pots and utensils, free covered parking: all made it possible to "settle in" and live for a few days in comfort and convenience and according to our own timetable.
Palm Cove is a beautiful and quite location, right adjacent to the ocean. Melaleuca Resort fits right in and adds gardens that have to be seen to be appreciated. Many trees offer shade near the pool and common areas as well as protect from the very little noise that may come from the street. Through the trees is a wonderful filtered view of the sea.
The proprietors, Margaret and Stephen, clearly value hospitality. We were welcomed by Stephen who took the time to speak with us about the area. He asked great questions and was able to provide very helpful information about the area - from "where is the best grocery store" to "how long does it take to drive to Cape Tribulation", along with all the applicable maps and brochures. He showed us our apartment and explained all of its features.
There are quite a few nearby restaurants for when you don't want to cook for yourself. Our favorite for a special dinner was the Reef House.
Palm Cove is probably best for those with access to a car. Given that, it is a great central location between Cairns and Port Douglas with easy access to attractions north and south.
If we are ever in this area again we will most certainly stay in Palm Cove at the Melaleuca Resort!
