After spending the first three nights of my recent week in the Cairns area in a very good motel near downtown, I wanted to spend my final four nights in a location a bit out of town and close to the Coral Sea. I found this marvelous apartment complex online and was attracted by the price, as well as the... More

Hey All, there was 3 Adults an 1 child staying here for 5 nights and found that there was no service really. The reception hours where poor in my opinion as they didn't open to 9am, but if you’re up there all your tours start then, or earlier. There was terrible lighting going up the stairs (lights where blown/not working),... More

Hi All, I have been managing the complex for three weeks when this booking arrived. Firstly the confirmation letter implied to hand in the voucher as soon as practicable after arrival. This was not done. Reminder suggested. No response at Room by Pabx phone call was made. As many tourist travel out of mobile range to Green Island or reef/... More

Although it was 6 years ago when we visited Pacific Sands Holiday Apartments, I have to say they were clean, spacious and modern. They were everything a family of 4 could want. So good that after we'd stayed there and then moved off up north to Dayntree, we came back to the same apartments on our way back down the... More

One easy block walk to the beach. One/two easy blocks to Cairns bus and 2 lovely restaurants, one beachfront.. Older units but clean and fresh with a relaxing balcony. Super pool for the kids and bbq. We loved it. Peaceful - you should go.

These apartments are ideally suited to families who want to stay at a beach location away from the cbd without the frills and pretentious resort style facilities. Holloways Beach is a great location (mainly residential) with all necessary amenities. Pacific Sands compliments that with low key accommodation but all the necessary inclusions.

I was pleasantly surprised upon entering our holiday unit. I loved the decor and colour scheme and the way the unit was presented. Most sea side holiday apartments come with florals and cane, but our unit came with clean line furniture and modern finishings. NICE!!!

Pacific Sands was like a home for us. the owner was very helpful. I had 2 teenagers and they were really comfortable and happy, which made our stay even more relaxing. rooms are very spacious and well lit. all shops and amenities are just about a 5-10 drive away, so you not far from them but not so close that...

Away from the husstle and busstle of cairns, close to Kuranda and Port Douglas, very quiet street, guaranteed a very restful stay.
