We stayed here for a week back in April for our Honeymoon. We had never been to Palm Cove or Far North Queensland before and found Palm Cove Tropic Apartments to be the perfect base. The apartment was a perfect size, very clean, with ideal facilities for self catering. Our apartment overlooked the pool which was very pleasant. The apartment complex was very peaceful. I loved waking up in the morning to the sounds of the birds and watching the flying foxes fly over at dusk.
The location was an ideal short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. There is also a short nature walk that I was lucky enough to see Wallabies roaming wild on nearby.
Wayne at reception was amazingly helpful. Being tourists we asked him advice everyday about things to do, he supplied maps and valid information about Mossman Gorge, Daintree Rainforest, Great Barrier Reef and Crocodile adventures. You can also book up day trips and hire cars through him. We had our own hire car and really appreciated the use of the safe underground parking spot that comes with the room.
Coles supermarket is a short drive away, this does tend to close early especially at weekends so be aware.
Our favourite restaurant was Colonies in the shopping village. They had a good offer with food and wine. The style of restaurant was alfresco dining. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff were very friendly. We went there a couple of times during our stay.
Palm Cove is an ideal location to zip up and down the coast to see as far up as Daintree Rainforest or as low down as Cairns.
I would definitely stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other travellers.
