Wonderful hosts, wonderful clean room, wonderful comfy bed, wonderful pool, wonderful advice on tours, what else can be said...Oh, and I was actually convinced to try snorkelling for the first time. It was a memorable experience due to Steve's recommendation to take the Reef Magic Cruise. We will never forget our happy 5 night stay. Many thanks Steve and Sandy....

Very nice. Clean, tidy, secure, fair price, excellent location with beautiful grounds and a lovely pool. Sandy and Steve were excellent and provided both good service and a personal touch. Five minute walk to a lovely beach with local dining. Martin and Vivien, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

After a 3 weeks round trip by car from Alice Springs, Darwin, and Cairns my wife and me just wanted a few days rest. But we found a true little paradise. I didn't expect that. A stunning pool in an extraordinary environment. Here you get the absolute best for your money.

Absolutely beautiful location with top-notch management. The upper floor apt. was complete down to the teaspoons,and the view of the pool was pure tropical romance at night. We arrived late because of travel issues and were greeted warmly. Our special request for internet access after-hours was accommodated, and the pre-arranged tours were some of the best parts of our whole...

We were very happy with the accomodations and Steve helped with booking our excursions. He provides good advise and knows who is best to work with. We are experienced travellers and expect value for our dollar, and we were not disappointed Palm cove is a beautiful, but secluded location so we suggest having a car. We should have stayed longer...

We booked without really knowing what we were getting, making our judgement on internet photos and value for money. We felt that we had really landed on our feet very soon after arrival. Our apartment was spacious, fresh and extremely comfortable. The surrounding grounds were equally of a high standard. The heated pool, deck area and lush garden environment made...

I've just returned from my first trip to Cairns and stay at the Palm Cove Tropic Apartments. Steve & Sandy were very helpful arranging transfers and giving me information about local attractions. As I travel on my own their friendly natures were great and did not intimidate me. Whenever i walked past they always said hi and always called me...

The apartments are ideally situated, just off the main drag but about 200 metres fom the beach - thus very quiet but a walk of only minutes to shops and restaurants. The apartments are set around a pool with very pleasant landscaping of mature trees and palms. The hosts, Sandy and Steve are exceptional - genuinely friendly and nothing is...

We're doing a world tour, and booked PCTA by internet from the lobby of a motel in Auckland, the night before! Took a bit of pot luck by doing this as TA reviews did not exist, but were very encouraged by the rave reviews found via Google. We weren't to be disappointed. From the moment we phoned to make our...
