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.
