We have just returned from a 4 night stay here and would recommend it to anyone not wanting to stay in a 'resort' or city accommodation. This place is a resort with fantastic pool etc but you feel quite secluded and special. The apartments are great, lots of room to stretch out, full cooking facilities and washing machine and dryer.... More

You have found our little piece of paradise. The fact that we are 15 minutes drive from the city but it is so relaxing with the beach opposite us is what we love. Thank you for taking the time to place a review and we would love to welcome you back the next time you are visiting Cairns. More

We stayed here for 7 nights in October, after driving up from Gladstone,with my husbands brother and his wife,over from London. Our rooms could not have been better, with our great balconies overlooking the sea,the rooms are very comfortable,everything you could possibly need has been provided. The eating places in the area were all of a high standard.The local people... More

We just loved this condo-like room and its balcony. Our only regret is not staying here longer. The AC in the bedrooms was a welcomed bonus. It was easy to check in late and check out early. It's convenient to the only food on the beach. Only 10 minutes to the airport. The bed was a bit hard, but we... More

We stayed here for 4 nights during the end of September and the weather was just great, 30' and a beautiful breeze blowing on the beach. We were so happy with the Cairns Beach Resort and found the whole place very relaxing. Everything was there, like home from home, including a built in laundry room which as we had travelled... More

We stayed here for 4 nights after driving up from Sydney, and we found the perfect place to unwind after our trip. We had everything we needed to cater for ourselves, including washer and dryer so caught up on the laundry while sunbathing. Ideally situated for the beach which is long and quiet. There is an excellent restaurant across the... More

Great location being close to beach. Clean spacious fully equipped apartments. The pool area was great with BBQ close by. Having the café opposite and the Italian restaurant and footy club nearby led to a good choice of eating venues. Management and staff were always helpful and informative as to what was available. Definitely will return.

The apartment was a good size, nothing too fancy, but very pleasant. It had all the basic requirements, but could have been a bit cleaner. The kitchen had enough equipment just to get by with. We chose the location as we did not want to be in town, and the cafe opposite is lively with a basic menu. The pool... More

Value for money resort - lovely grounds. Setting is peaceful, quiet and secluded. Close to the beach and away from the city but close enough to not be an issue. The budget apartment was roomy and well appointed. Definitely can recommend!

Our budget apartments are perfect for those looking for a cheaper holiday, being the same size as the other apartments but just appointed differently. We are glad you found it to be what you were looking for and look forward to having you return. More
