Another great stay, we have stayed at Grand Mercure Rockford Palm Cove on a number of occasions, love the closeness to the beach (just across the road), the fantastic pool, and the great relaxed atmosphere. Close to lovely restaurants and shops. We will certainly be returning in the future.

Third visit to this hotel. We just love it. We stay in a one bedroom apartment which is great value for money. Lovely and big, beautifully furnished, with kitchen and washing machine coming in very handy. We always eat out for dinner due to the fabulous restaurants in Palm Cove, but love the option of breakfast in the apartment. The... More

the apartment was well equipped the 2nd bedroom was little more than an alcove with sliding glass panels to close it in, not affording us any privacy from the children in the evening.. The lighting in the rooms was very dim, the pool was fabulous surrounded by huge protected melaleuca trees .loved the location lots of good restuarants in easy... More

My husband and I have stayed at this resort on 4 occasions. The apartments are well appointed and provide everything we need. The outlook over the tropical gardens, ancient gum trees, and the pool is sensational. It is in an excellent position - the beach, cafes and a variety of shops are close at hand. It is the very best... More

The rooms are well appointed and the furnishings comfortable and modern. The location is right across from the beach. There is ample car parking. Whilst the place may lack something in atmosphere and charachter, it was a good stay,

Came away to chill out. That's exactly what we did. Apartments clean. First experience at Palm Cove. Will be back. Weather perfect. Staff very helpful when needed. Spa was great to relax in after day in the sun. BBQ was cleaned after every use by staff the following day. So really no complaints.

Had a wonderful time at the Grand Mercure. The staff were really helpful. We stayed in two different apartments, both just off the pool deck and found them both to be spacious and well equiped. The weather was perfect so we used the BBQs set in the beautiful gardens nearly every night. The lush tropical gardens are a feature of... More
