“Our favourite holiday stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We have stayed at this resort several times. It is set in beautiful tropical surroundings with a delightful pool area. Our hosts, Margaret and Steve are unfailingly helpful and friendly. Steve even offered to drive us to the supermarket on our arrival. The apartments are spotless, spacious and extremely well presented. Beds are supremely comfortable. it is great to have a full sized kitchen, and our own washing machine and dryer. the balcony is ideal for relaxing, and each balcony offers restful views of the garden and/or the beach. You go to sleep to the sound of waves and the call of the curlews beneath the beach almonds. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else but Melaleuca. close to shops, and restaurants, and the beach is opposite.

Room Tip: We think all the rooms would be equally well appointed, but if you have mobility problems ask for a...

This hotel resort was budget friendly and family friendly. A few different groups with young children stayed here while attending a wedding and the facilities in room and on site were great, with fully equip kitchen as well an outdoor bbq facility and pool area. The hotel was also in a prime location being on the esplanade and in very close walk to the beach and all of the restaurants. Would highly recommend.

Our booking was made very last minute due to the Indonesian Volcano erupting our plans to Singapore. Margaret and Steve were very accommodating and we were able to book into the Melaleuca Resort for a few days even though the Iron Man Marathon Event was on that weekend. A recent update including fresh paint and new outdoor furniture was most appreciated.
We will continue to recommend this establishment to all our friends.
A special feature is the stunning tropical garden equal to any worldwide resort.

Room Tip: The sound of the ocean from the balcony is fabulous.

This will be my fourth visit to the Melaleuca Resort,it has improved year by year. The units are immaculate, they have recently been painted and refurbished and look great, the view from your balcony is spectacular, Margaret & Steve as always are helpful and friendly and always make you feel welcome.The location is perfect right across the road is the beach and a short walk to the shops & restaurants.I have encouraged my family to visit this beautiful place.Looking forward to my next trip there.

Room Tip: my suggestion is the ocean view units

Though Margaret was a great host, didn`t think the rating should have been 41/2 star. The unit was tired, bed uncomfortable, the screen door was broken and the aircon wouldn`t work. We could hear the unpstairs toilet flushing when we were in bed. It was in the centre of Palm Cove which was good.

Thank you Chris M from Brisbane. We do hope you enjoyed your visit to Palm Cove. There may have been some confusion over the Air Con control as you need to insert the Key tag into the wall switch to power the two Air Cons. All is working well now. We are rated by AAA STAR Ratings as 4 Star Self Catering Holiday Apartments. We are at present painting the apartments and are half way through the 24. We try very hard with cleaning and service to maintain this standard, and are continuously upgrading where cost and time allow, hence our painting. Our next big project is to install new beds through out. Thank you again for your positive comments. Steve.

We stayed at the the Melaleuca Resort Palm Cove. The host and hostess were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was clean and tidy and plenty of room for the 2 of us.
The location is in the middle of Palm Cove's main beach esplanade and not to far from the patrolled beach.
Plenty of walk ways around the area to explore.
The bus service comes along the esplanade that will take you to Clifton Beach shopping centre (Coles and Target), Smithfield Mall or onto Cairns Bus 110
Although the apartment on the lower level was sea facing it looked over the grounds and garden where the growth obscured any sea views. But it was pleasant outlook.

Thank you Sunseeker from Wellington. We enjoyed having you stay and look forward to your return. We know how cold it can get over there and not be on the Ski Slopes. To other guests who have had a problem with our free WiFi. We have upgraded the external aerial and reception and signal strength are much better. We think this is very good as a FREE Resort WiFi standard. We are well aware of the increasing needs of all to download everything, some guests can each have three devises on at once. We will keep improving and monitoring your feedback. Keep warm. Steve and Margaret.

Just spent 5 nights at Melaleuca, booked it after reading reviews and we were not disappointed, it is a great place to stay in a perfect location, room was spotless and spacious with views of the ocean(second storey). Margaret was very friendly and helpful (thanks for the umbrella!) we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Second storey for ocean view
