Single bedroom unit in an excellent location. Nice pool and surroundings. Margaret and Steven were excellent hosts. The local restaurants were of a high quality with discounts applying if you mention Melaleuca Resort upon arrival. Excellent value for the area

We stayed at Melaleuca Resort for 5 days. We had never been to Palm Cove and found it was well situated on the beach front. We were on the 2nd floor and had lovely views of the beach. Very comfortable. Margaret was very kind and helpful and explained the area and things to do very well. She made our helicopter ride booking for us, which was brilliant. Would definitely recommend. It is not a "glamorous" resort but it ticks all the boxes for us with being roomy and comfortable with great views. There is also a beautiful pool which was never crowded.

Nice peaceful and relaxing, with the coffee shops being friendly and restaurants reasonable priced but as Melaleuca is apartments do your own bbq, or cook in the kitchen. The pool is fresh and clean and never too full of ppl.

My husband and I really couldn't fault Melaleuca Resort, it ticked every box. Palm Cove is a wonderful destination and Melaleuca Resort is perfectly located on the waterfront.Our room was on the 1st floor overlooking the pool and the ocean. The apartment was very well equipped and quite spacious. For quality, comfort and cleanliness we couldn't ask for more. We felt welcome from the start and simply didn't want to leave. We highly recommend Melaleuca Resort.
