Palm Cove Tropic Apartments
Reviewed 20 August 2007

We stayed at PCTA for 7 nights at the end of a 4 week trip from Sydney/Red Centre/Rainforest to allow ourselves some time to relax before the long journey home to the UK.

Arrival at the apartments was lovely. We were greeted by Steve who had taken the trouble to remember our names, so felt very welcome. Given that we'd been travelling and living out of our suitcases for 3 weeks it was lovely to arrive to the smell of an obviously very clean apartment! Not to mention utilise the washing machine and dryer!!

There was everything we needed to have meals in our apartment and we used the bbq one night too. The esplanade is very close, literally around the corner and the wonderful beach equally only a few minutes away.

We organised a trip to the Reef via Steve and Sandy who's local knowledge and research on the weather for us ensured that we had a lovely day when we went. They were very helpful - thanks guys! They were also able to advise us/organise other trips for us along with transportation.

On this subject we used Cove Coachlines for our transfer from Cairns to Cape Tribulation, then back to Palm Cove and then from there to Cairns airport again. They were very good and we feel very reasonably priced (all this for approx A$400).

The outdoor area is great, our 7 year old couldn't keep out of the pool! Again, very clean.

I'm certain that if we were ever in the area again we would definitely stay there and would certainly recommend Palm Cove Tropic Apartments to our friends.

We arrived at PCTA half way through our visit to Australia. I was very impressed with the standard of the apartments. It was spacious, clean and had everything in that you could ever need. The laundry facilities within the apartment (washer, dryer, ironing board and iron), were most useful as it gave us chance to wash our clothes before heading off to Sydney. Although these are self catering apartments there were basic essentials for our arrival such as tea and coffee, soap. shampoo, washing powder etc. The location of the apartments was perfect. It was quiet and peaceful and just a very short stroll to the beach. The surroundings of the apartments really made you feel as though you were in 'tropical' surroundings and the pool was lovely. Due to the plants and trees the pool area does get in the shade during the afternoon, so not an area where you can sit around and get a tan. However, with a beautful beach close by this should not cause too much of a problem. The pool is heated and was a nice form of relaxation. We booked all our tours before arriving, but the range of tour details that Sandy and Steve had available was unbelievable. They were also happy to book any of these tours for you. Steve and Sandy were very friendy and made us feel most welome. We would certainly recommend PCTA and if one day we return to Palm Cove we would stay at PCTA. Thank you Steve and Sandy from Tina and Steve, England.
