Thank you for a great review. Palm Cove and the central location of Melaleuca Resort is just the formula to relax. The beach opposite is only a few meters from the entrance and our pool and gardens. Regards.

I loved the view from our balcony, over looking the pool & the beach. The room was so quiet, no noise from any of the other rooms. The only thing wrong was that I should have booked to stay longer!!!

The overall tropical feel, being right on the waterfront and the wonderful tropical gardens, both outside the property and inside, so well kept. The resort pool is designed like a natural rock pool to complete our tropical paradise holiday.

Great location, good facilities and lovely manager

Great apartments for self catering. Well maintained and comfortable, and had washing machine and dryer. Margaret was an excellent host, she's very helpful and approachable, organising a number of tours for us. The pool was lovely and apartments all had Foxtel. The only slightly negative was the free wifi wasn't great as we often could not connect or it was very slow. We ended up using our own portable wifi. I would certainly recommend this place to family and friends, the location was fantastic, great facilities and managers were so easy to deal with.
