Our family recently stayed at the Cairns Beach Resort for a week and from arrival we felt like a local. The Staff made our stay an enjoyable experience (as good as you can with 3 kids lol) and offered a wide range of activities and experience to really take in all Cairns and the surrounding areas had to offer.

The staff, Lynne and Glenn were superb... sure took care of us and pointed all kinds of good advise to make our trip more pleasant. The facilities are very clean and very well kept. In the tropical climates, bugs are always a concern, well, not here, very clean indeed. The facilities provide all you can really need on a holiday,... More

My wife and i stayed for a week in Cairns at this resort and it was excellent. Large rooms, king bed, washing machine (which broke and was quickly fixed) and dryer, good kitchenette with pots/pans etc. Full size fridge. Bath but not Spa. Short stroll to the beach and shops (IGA). The lady on reception was so friendly and efficient... More

Probably one of the best resorts we have ever stayed at. The owners couldn't be more helpful and obliging. Resort was on the beach and very relaxing. Everything that you could need was there or not too far away. Would recommend it ti anyone wanting somewhere warm to sit back and relax.

Enjoyed a wonderful 7 day break here, Facilities are clean and well maintained, BBQ's on site, also great swimming and spa pool. Lynn the Manager had great local knowledge and everything she recommended we throughly enjoyed. If you don't have a car there is a regular public bus service into Cairns (30 minute trip). The Holloways Beach area has a... More

Small, friendly place to stay. Everything we needed was there and it close enough to get into Cairns on a short bus trip and far enough away to be peaceful and quiet.

The Cairns Beach Resort is a good quality 4-star apartment complex in Holloways Beach, about 10 minute drive from the centre of Cairns City. If people are expecting to be in Cairns, then they will be disappointed, but the deal is that Cairns doesn't have a beach. Holloways Beach is the second beach up to the north of Cairns. Having...

We've just spent seven days in the Cairns Beach Resort and thoroughly enjoyed it. Holloways Beach is one of the northern beaches of Cairns and offers a much quieter experience than in the city, which suited us perfectly. We had a car and this allowed us to explore the area. Of the local attractions we particularly recommend Mossman Gorge and... More

This resort is simply beautiful, it was relaxing and very accommodating to families with children. We loved that there were washing machine and dryers in the apartment, which was perfect when we had an 18 month old! There was a lot to do in walking distance to the resort. And a quick stroll across the road and you're at the... More
