Moder, clean, fully equipped, with a private outdoor area, beautifully located! Palm Cove is such a beautiful destination and we had a great family holidays with our toddler. the facilities are fantastic, beds comfortable, couldn't hope for more! Located just next to the beach, as good as it gets! Definitely coming back!

Absolutely lovely, pool is beautiful, rooms clean, BBQ is free and all utensils supplied in the room. This is one of the best places I have stayed at and I have travelled. You can't go wrong here. No swim up to bar but its cheaper to bring your own drinks anyway. Also pool isn't overcrowded.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was well priced at $225 a night. It was fine for the money but not somewhere I would choose to return. The pool wasn't heated which makes it a bit uninviting in winter. Pool maintenance could be improved - lots of leaves and debris remained in the bottom of the pool during our week long stay. Reception staff could be friendlier - just a smile and eye contact would make a great difference.

Stayed for a week and had a fantastic time. Great location and great feel to the resort. Large pool with an ability to be in the sun or in the shade. Really nice setting and you don't feel on top of others around the resort. Everything arranged for us with a smile. We had a great time. Will be back!

We had a wonderful stay at the Mercure in Palm Cove. Walking distance to everything you would need during your stay. One bedroom apartment big enough for 2 Adults and 2 Children (7 & 9). We loved getting up each morning and going for walk along the beach and ending with a coffee and milkshake on the way back to the hotel for breakfast. Wonderful cafe's right around the corner.

Palm Cove is a great location out of the hustle and bustle of the city. Very quiet and some great restaurants. The room was well designed and easily met our needs. The Staff were friendly and the grounds offered a peaceful serenity with all its tropical vegetation. The pool is huge and you can get your BBQ gear from reception without taking stuff from your room.

The only downside to the Cairns region (not the resorts fault), is the tours are well over priced but I guess that's Australia for you.

We booked our apartment via Stayz.com from an owner that lives in overseas. The advert sold the "sit on the balcony and have breakfast and an evening drink" and said that it had table and chairs and loungers. Unfortunately, the balcony had only a garden bench type seat. This really spoiled our holiday. The apartment was not filthy but it was not clean. All the vents and the cooker filter were dirty. All the lights had insects still in them. The inside lounge had stains on it. Fortunately , the bed linen and towels were clean. The bathroom lighting in both bathrooms was so dark and dingy that you could not see if it was clean or not. There was a hair grip and some paper on the floor. As regards the Actual resort....the pool is surrounded by large trees (which probably are protected) however even when there is sun the tree block it all out. The pool always has lots of leaves in it....There is not bar or cafe etc inside the resort. Nope wont be back and wont recommend thats for sure. Try the maleluca resort, excellent !!!!!!!!
