We had spent 7 days driving around northern Queensland and coming to Palm Cove was to relax. Melaleuca was perfect - very comfortable apartment, beautiful sea and garden views, laundry facilities (just what we needed!) Margaret and Steven were very friendly and most helpful - an issue with the air conditioning remote controller was sorted very quickly. We would highly...

Nestled in the heart of Palm Cove, the Melaleuca Resort is surrounded by eateries, restaurants and shops, is a stones throw from the beach and a short stroll to the bus stop, local pub and surf club. Our one bedroom, self-contained apartment was well appointed with a comfy bed, two icy air conditioners and a balcony overlooking the picturesque gardens,...

My partner and I stayed here at the beginning of December and adored the resort.... The room/ apartment was huge and very clean the staff wonderful and all the amenities were just gorgeous! The best part of the resort would have to be the location... So close to good and activities and the beautiful beach! We will be back :)

We stayed here based on previous reviews and location. It was a lovely place, the gardens are magnificent, in fact we loved them so much we plan on using them as a template for our own. The hosts were very welcoming, even with Margaret's broken arm she still showed us to our room and gave us plenty of information. Not...

Hi RosieMeadows. Thank you for your lovely review. Marg's arm is mending well and I am doing the best I can for a partner with a sore limb. The one handed typing gets her very frustrated but she has to soldier on. We look forward to your return soon and hope your travels are safe ones. Regards Steve and Margaret.

Once again a great 5 night stay at Melaleuca last week. Fantastic location, lovely apartment. Pool and gardens superb as always. An amazing place to relax, where doing nothing is everything. Margaret and Stephen do an incredible job. They are amazingly helpful and always responsive, Margaret's broken arm notwithstanding. Hope it recovers quickly. A beautiful week in Palm Cove. Thank...

Stayed for four nights at the end of our holiday. Best accomadation of the holiday. From check in to check out there were no problems. First class hosts who had booked several trips for us before I arrived. All went very smoothly at no extra cost. Right opposite the beach. Very quiet. Would definitely return.
