This was a really great place to stay for a week - when I initially arrived I was wondering whether it might have been a better idea to stay in central Cairns, but after a couple of days I was confident I had made the right choice. The drive to Cairns centre is 15 minutes max so with a hire...

Hi Feddy, Thank you for your wonderful review, we really appreciate feedback. We are currently going to plant up another Banana Grove and some butterfly friendly vines behind the Barbecues area. FYI on the views we are removing the old golden cane palms to open up the view as it is a shame to hide it away. Happy traveling. Naomi,...

Before we left Los Angeles our daughter wanted to dip her feet in the east Pacific Ocean. On our arrival at Cairns Beach Resort she dipped her feet in the west of the Pacific Ocean. The resort is across the road from the beach in a relaxing small town. It is clean and very well equipped for functioning as home...

We traveled to Cairns for a week of R&R. Reserved at Cairns Beach Resort - Once we drove from the airport to the resort (15 minutes max) and got there we were greeted by the most friendly people you can imagine. The place was quiet, located directly across the street from the beach/ocean and a beach bar/restaurant - Perfect! The...

Imagine life's a beach!! Our flight arrived early in the morning and expecting maybe to have to wait till our room was ready we were told we could go straight to our room. With a view/balcony overlooking the beach and all the facilities you could ask for, large living space, kitchen, laundry, king size bed, AC, beautiful pool and gardens...

My friend and I had a great stay here. The rooms are more like small apartments with a kitchen, living room, deck, and bedroom with attached bathroom. Amenities included a fridge, washing machine/dryer, and stove. The rooms were clean, and all appliances (including AC) worked well. The management was very friendly and helped us book sightseeing and diving trips. The...

Great location. Clean, tidy and well appointed units. Friendly and helpful front desk staff with good knowledge of local attractions. Recommend and booked suitable places to eat for our group and organised hire vehicles. Right on the beach and very relaxing surrounds.

Just had a lovely weekend at this tropical resort. Our room was spotlessly clean and the beds were so,so comfortable. The air-conditioning and fans worked well in this often times humid climate. The resort staff and managers were very helpful and can arrange tours and cars. The cafe across the road serves a very hearty and tasty breakfast catering to...

We stayed at this resort for 4 nights in August. The unit was nothing fancy, but it certainly suited our needs and was very clean. We upgraded to get a view of the beach. While we could see the beach, we mostly just saw the little restaurant shack across the street. There is really nothing in this area-- which is...

We traded our timeshare time for a week at this property and I could not have been happier. There is a number of reasons why this is a great property and everyone should try and get into this location, so let me list them off: 1. You are 10 minutes from the airport and you can't hear anything from the...
