“Good location shame about the manager”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

The 2 bedroom Apartment was clean and good size. Location one block back from beach fine.A bit dark and shady. Wayne the manager was not a people person at all and was the main negative. Not friendly. Pool did not seem heated either.

No hesitation in recommending this great spot.
Off the 'busy' main strip, perfectly placed, 2 min barefoot walk to the beach - if strolling,
Quiet at night, pool area constantly maintained, great BBQ facilities, seems to attract like minded - friendly/courteous clientele
Self-contained units are well appointed,
3 steps for strollers on ground floor units. Excellent
Easy organised high chair + cot hire, and well priced

Trying to justify trying another holiday location.....but cant.

Stayed 3 nights,loved it. Great apartment, so close to everything. Complex not too big so it was nice and quiet. Palm cove is a perfect holiday spot for Victorians in winter, we look forward to returning

Room Tip: Ground floor apartment right beside the pool was fabulous - baby could sleep while we swam in earsho...

I booked here (for my husband and myself), on the recommendation of my sister, who stayed here last year. We were so impressed by the place. Janet, Wayne's mum, was managing the place while he was away, and couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. When we asked for advice on some of the tourist attractions, Janet gave some suggestions, then offered to make some further enquiries and made our booking for us. It makes such a huge difference when you get a locals knowledge on the area. The one bedroom apartment, number 105, was just what we needed, and being on the ground floor, overlooked the lovely pool area. The balcony area, off the lounge, was protected and cool, still providing privacy from the other apartments. We would sit out there until dark, on most days, enjoying the serenity! The stairs, just outside the apartment, led to a large undercover parking area. The BBQ area was kept clean and had all facilities needed eg cooking utensils, fridge and toilet/shower area...and huge seating area. Inside the apartment, great idea being able to swivel the television around so it can be watched from the lounge, bedroom or balcony areas. Tea, coffee and washing powder sachet and toiletries supplied, but these only last a few days, so if staying longer, will need to supply yourself. Wifi was available but I was unable to access it from 105. There was a communal computer and lounge area however, opposite reception, which is made available for all guests. The apartments were about 100 metres walk from the Esplanade and beach, without the windy conditions! So well protected from the elements. Very affordable dining in the area and spoilt for choice. Thank you, Tropic Apartments and Janet, for leaving such a great impression of the place. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the pool, I imagine would be best.

This was our 4th visit to Palm Cove and our 3rd time staying at Palm Cove Tropic Apartments.
Scott and Wayne have always been helpful and friendly, nothing was ever too much trouble to arrange.
Being just a short walk (3 minutes) to the beach front meant that we did not have the views some other apartments had, but if you want somewhere peaceful and quiet, to just sit in the sun, read a book,or take a dip in the gorgeous pool, then this is just the place. And fabulous value for money.
We will certainly be back.
And whilst you are up there, have breakfast at Chill Cafe (say g'day to Tony) and dinner at PortoBeoll (say g'day to Michael and Rosa). You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies and aircon. Ours looked over the lovely tropical gardens and pool and was s...

This was our third stay to be near family over the past 7 years. It is soooo good. We stayed 10 nights this time in a 2 bedroom unit. The apartments are clean , well stocked and have everything you could possibly need (except scissors). There are only about 10 apartments altogether but you are not even aware of others really. The pool and barbecue area are just great. It is in such a quiet area but near to cafes, restaurants, doctors..... you name it. Buses go to Cairns every 1/2 hour from just around the corner.Just at great place and excellent value, Nothing is too much trouble for Wayne your host

Room Tip: Corner suite is our preferred but all are great.

A quiet, not too big, place to relax. The rooms are well appointed and the air con works well in the hot and humid times. The pool was great, BBQ area comfortable, clean and tidy. Close to everything but not in the "hub" of the masses. We stayed a week and have come back refreshed and like we had a good "value for money" experience. We will be back.

Room Tip: 2nd floor overlooks everything and gives privacy
