    Historical Traveler Reviews Palm Cove Tropic Apartments

    Greate place to stay

    from

    our daughter organised the accommodation, it was excellant. Steve and Sandy were very helpful and lended us a hand when we needed help with transport. Steve provided glass ware from his own fridge when we needed a couple of extras.

    The Perfect Retreat in Palm Cove

    from

    On short notice, business colleague and I rented a two-bedroom apartment as a base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef. This spot turned out perfect!

    Complex is a two minute walk from the beach, three more minutes to the center of Palm Cove. Town is a delightful, peaceful gem. Apartment was tastefully decorated, clean and quite comfortable. Balcony was adjacent to jungle-like area surrounding a nice pool. Even had fully-equipped BBQ area.

    Steve was a friendly, well-informed host. He helped us make excursion reservations for the reef and recommended area restaurants (that were fantastic). On the morning of our departure the airport taxi we had booked was running late. Fearing we might miss our flight, Steve whisked us to the airport in his own car. Now that's what I call service!

    Very much looking forward to a future visit with my family!

    Very nice

    from

    Stayed for four nights, the apartment was lovely, clean and well furnished. Steve & Sandy were really helpfull, friendly, and happy to help, great time had by all, would reccomend this nice friendly place.

    Family feel

    from

    giving the units need an up date they were very clean the manegers were helpfull, nice and close to the beach and restaraunts, there was even a spade and bucket that we could borrow for the beach for the kids nice place will definately stay the again !!!!

    Restful retreat

    from

    My husband and I needed an escape for five days and Palm Cove Tropics was perfect for our needs. We visited the area during peak season which could have cost us a fortune but the affordable prices of Palm Cove mean't we could get away without breaking the bank.

    Our room was clean and tidy and the bed and pillows excellent. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed and each morning we enjoyed breakfast on the balcony surrounded by gorgeous palm and tropical trees.

    While the apartments were not on the beach they were within 5 minutes walking distance. This is actually an advantage as when the wind gets up along the shore we could retreat back to our apartment and relax at the pool side which was sun lit and totally protected.

    I found the hosts to be extremely friendly and helpful. They were highly knowledgable of the area and arranged our booking out to the reef, car hire so we could travel up to Port Douglas for the day and into Kuranda and bus transfers from Cairns.

    I would not hesitate recommending this place to friends and family and should I visit the area again definetely intend staying. Palm Cove Tropics is great for families or couples who want a quiet, affordable holiday in a beautiful setting and a relaxing environment.

    Defintely 4 stars.

    Tropical Paradise

    from

    We have reluctantly returned from PCTA. The Apartments are like a haven, most of the rooms surround a beautiful lagoon style pool. Our room was facing the pool, yet it was still very private and quiet. the gardens are beautifully kept and has a tropical feel.

    The apartments are well appointed and beautifully clean.

    Only a street back from the beach, made an easy stroll to the water. We were able to visit a lot of the beautiful restaurants along the esplanade. Highly recommend that activity!

    We were able to book our tours from the on site manager. All arrangements went without a hitch. Recommend the Skyway trip and the Daintree River. We visited Port Douglas but much prefer the serenity of Palm Cove.

    The Managers are new, but you would not receive this style of personalised service at a five star hotel.

    Highly recommend, we will be back there asap.

    Very nice pslce and people

    from

    Just returned from 10 days at Palm Cove Tropic Apts,which we booked on line through Travel Agent ,(big Mistake )and even before we arrived new managers Steve and Sandy made us

    welcome and helped and guided us all the way.

    Loved Palm cove itself but there advise and help made it so much easier,nothing was too much trouble even after hours,the place is very clean and tidy and the pool was great (The photos don't do it justice )location was also great .

    Location 10 out of 10!

    Acccomadation 10!

    Steve and sandy 10 plus!!!!

    These guys have only taken over 11 weeks ago, but it is obvious they enjoy what they do and enjoy the people, we were sad to go as we felt we knew them so well after 10 days , how rare is that!

    So all in all a great and happy time and would only stay there if going back to Palm Cove, cairns etc......

    Made our vacation perfect

    from

    We stayed at the Palm Cove Tropic apartments for four nights in October, and loved it. We were looking for an affordable place to stay in Palm Cove that was near the beach, but quiet. It also needed to accomodate both our family of five and my parents. We had stayed in Palm Cove previously, and knew that places right on the Esplanade were quite expensive, and noisy at times. Steve and Sandy had the perfect solution for us. Their apartments are just steps from the beach, but one street off the main esplanade in a quiet, lush setting. They had an apartment that suited our family (and it's not always easy to find a place that sleeps five!) and another apartment that perfectly suited two people for my parents. I had originally booked for three nights, but Steve was cheerful about my request to change it to four nights a few days after my original booking. He was very pleasant to talk with on the phone, and followed up our conversations with confirmation emails.

    From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. Steve and Sandy remembered all of our names, and greeted us whenever we came in or out of the property. The apartments were clean and well-appointed, with a wonderful kitchen area, full-sized refrigerator, and a washer and dryer that came in handy during our stay. The dishes were a bit mismatched, for as new owners they are still trying to completely restock the apartments, but there was plenty of everything.

    Steve and Sandy had our kids eating out of the palm of their hands, literally, when they gave them a small bag of candy on check-in. They also thoughtfully provided a large box of sand toys for kids to borrow, a large rack of books for the adults to borrow and swap, and had beach towels and videos available to rent for a nominal fee.

    The pool area was beautiful, with lounge chairs and pool toys provided. There was also an underground parking area for our car that was secured at night, so we felt very safe parking our car there.

    After a day on the beach, or out on the reef, it felt like coming home to our own personal oasis.

    Excellent hospitality

    from

    We spent 11 nights at the Tropic apartments in August. We contacted the owners directly and, despite it being a late enquiry, Steve and Sandy did everything they could to fit us in and make our stay enjoyable. Prior to visiting Palm Cove we had lived out of a suitcase for 3 weeks, so were delighted when we arrived in QLD to find a very clean apartment of a high standard with all mod cons. The decked pool area is lovely; loungers are provided and it is quiet and peaceful surrounded by lush tropical plants. The BBQ area too is great (we want one in England?!) providing you with an additional kitchen, where we embraced the Aussie barbeque tradition. Steve and Sandy recommended different tours we could go on and their friendly, hospitable approach really enhanced our stay.

    Basic but good

    from

    My husband, young son and I stayed here in late August '06. The ownership had just changed hands and new owners made every effort to ensure we had all we needed.

    We had purposely booked a ground floor apartment for our toddler and it worked out well - although slightly dated, the full kitchen and laundry plus big balcony was a blessing.

    The location is a little off the beaten track - at one end of Williams Esplanade - but that actually suited us (particularly with so much construction going on!).

    I'd recommend this accommodation if you're after something cheal and cheerful and close to the beach.

    Last night was an eventful one. Shortly after getting into bed we heard something running around in our tent annex... when we checked it out we found a bandicoot trying to steal our bread! There was a bit of a comedy moment as I chased it out under the trailer with the Australia road map as my weapon of choice. The next thing the bandicoot was hopping back in the front door of the annex and off we went again!! ...

Tegan and I left the main group and went over to the main beach and had a look to see what we could find. We saw a few more turtles and more crabs we walked back to the room and then called it quits for the ...

    ... It hasn't let us down yet! 3. Drink local beers! Burleigh Brewing co. has a great, 'hoppy', 1970s style pale ale. Beats XXXX hands down! There is a great website www.tq.com.au that has a page titled: 10 top beer stops - Tourism Queensland. Check it out and plan accordingly. 4. I am a bit of a wine snob.....BUT, I also love a cheesy tourist stop from time to time. So, when The Murdering Point Winery presented itself, we had to check it out! ...

    ... the lifeguard that Rob was talking to said the the stinger net about 3km down the beach was closed because a 3mtr croc had been spotted three times in the last 4/5 days... On our return to the hotel we sat on our veranda watching nightfall arrive, having the customary beer/wine whilst being entertained by fruit bats diving in and out the palm tree in front of us. The esplanade in front of us is alive with ...

    ... to Brisbane for the coming Tuesday too. We were so fed up of staying in that we had to go out for a few drinks, we couldn't take it anymore and we didn't care if we got blown away. So we rang our families and friends to say what could be our final goodbyes if we didn't make it through the weather (drama queens)!! We ended up having a good night, dancing away with some rather large aborigine girls and ironically the only song I can remember dancing with them too is "big booty ...
