We stayed for 4 nights in this apartment. The location near the beach is great and the staff lovely. Apartment is clean and all you need for cooking is available. Location is ideal if you want to discover North Queensland by yourself.

This was the second time staying here and it was just as comfortable and relaxing as the first. Everything is in walking distance (beach & shops) and you can rent a bike and have a fun ride to Palm cove which was about 15-ish minutes. Would come back here for a third time as it just feels like home!

'Clifton Sands' is the address for having the most beautiful and memorable holidays in Cairns. The units are very clean and inviting. Equipped with everything - from kitchen to bathroom to bedroom, all inclusive. Simply heaven! Just get your own food at the supermarket a few minutes walking distance. Every morning, the sunrise over the ocean gently woke us up.... More

Awesome place to stay in Clifton beach. Great spot if you want to be near the beach and just chill out. The room was spotless and modern. The service from Linda was second to none. Will be back again soon! Thank you again!

Everything was excellent about the hotel, but service was horrible. The owner of the hotel is never around. We arrived to the hotel. Our room door was supposed to be unlocked. Key was left inside the room, but our room door was locked. We had to wait almost an hour to get into our room because she couldn't be contacted.... More

I'm sorry that you feel that our service - one of our great strengths according to reviewers - was less than you expected. I should point out however, that we are not a full service 'hotel' - we are self-catering holiday apartments. I spend seven days a week on premises, Clifton Sands is also my home, and I do my...

We have just spent 6 nights staying at Clifton Sands and thoroughly enjoyed every second ..it is a small resort which makes it more homely and personal. The apartment is well appointed and spotlessly clean with a lovely roomy balcony. It was very close to the beautiful beach ideal for a daily walk. Also shopping centre near by with supermarket...

Absolutely loved my stay at Clifton Sands! The units are very light and bright, facing east to receive the early morning sun with beautiful views of the ocean, palm trees and natural surrounds. Everything was exceptionally clean with a well equipped kitchen. Truly appreciated the relaxed, friendly ambience of Clifton Sands and Linda is a wonderful host and certainly made... More

Just recently stayed for a week. Apartment was clean, less than 100m from beach, friendly and helpful staff. Surrounding area was beautiful and easy going.

Hi Ashlea - thanks for taking the time to review Clifton Sands, I know how busy we all get once home! I will always try to accommodate Guest's with a later check-out if at all possible. It was fortunate that I had that one apartment you could stay in until your late night flight. Hope you had a good trip... More
