Our check in was simple, our room clean and tidy. We overlooked the 3 pools area which lights up blue at night. Also had 2 other pool areas etc. Next to big shopping centre so easy access to supermarket, train station beside the shopping centre and only a few blocks away from town. Although it was near airport you could... More

On arriving at reception there was not a friendly smile or greeting to be had. When the room was finally ready I was told it was not overlooking the pool (as shown in the picture when I booked through Booking.com). Reception person said I didn't pay for a premium apartment or some such, however, there was no mention of this... More

This proved an excellent place to stay. It's a short walk to Cairns central and only a few blocks from the Esplanade. The room was spotless with every thing you could need for a holiday in a beautiful city

We liked this place. We stayed in a Standard Studio for two and it was just right for us with plenty of room. It had a cooker, microwave, fridge and cooking utensils; everything we needed. We found it clean, airy and well maintained. The safe was large enough to accommodate kindle size pad, digital cameras, phones and other personal items.... More

Very rude and dismissive reception staff. Not willing to help us when it was an inconvenience to them. We felt as though they simply couldn't be bothered with us. Extremely disappointed. The pool was ok and the rooms were pretty much what we expected.

My wife & her sister stayed 9 nights at the resort. The room was very clean and had good appliances. The downside was that the staff would not assist elderly guests with their bags up the stairs. The mngr just walked off & ignored my wife's request. Overall the resort was very nice and enjoyable but the staff need some... More
