We stayed here for two weeks, including Christmas. I had read the reviews on Tripadvisor, and decided this was exactly what we wanted in an appartmenta, and the location...and it was. Our appartments was on the first floor, with a very large balcony. Well equipped apartment, very spacious, and plenty of air conditioning, good decor, perhaps ready for an update.... More

Home away from home with beautiful views. Amazing managers and amazing spot for relaxing holiday. Karen and Angelo are the most helpful people including their little fury friend Fletcher. This was our second stay and hopefully not the last one ! Thank you guys for making our holiday success.!

The hotel is located just across the road from the beach. We booked a 2 bedroom suite, on the ground floor. The rooms were very clean. Excellent kitchen facilities. Only think amiss was that there was no milk for my tea in the room. Only provision was some tea and coffee. However it was walking distance from the shops.

Beautiful apartment. Very spacious - including the kitchen, lounge, dining, bedroom and bathroom as well as the decks outside. Truly puts you in relaxation mode. Lovely outlook, private and peaceful. Our top apartment was just perfect.

Everything about Argosy was excellent. It has lifts. Clean & comfortable with lovely spots on the deck where we ate our meals. The office lady is lovely making us very welcome providing us with wifi. The beach is glorious & it is quiet.

Really nice roomy unit with views to the beach, friendly staff, undercover parking, clean and comfortable. 5 min drive to shopping facilities and eateries, 25 - 30 metres to ocean. A quiet location, central to most activities.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Argosy. It is about a 15- 20 minute drive into central Cairns. The location is lovely and quiet across the road from the beach. Apartments are older and privately owned but quite well maintained. We had lovely views from our spacious apartment and balcony. The gardens and pool area are superb. The manager... More

We were travelling as 2 families and got two apartments on the ground floor. Location was good but the two apartments were totally different in style. One apartment had been updated (204) and the other looked like it was unchanged since built (203). The pool was convenient and the kids loved it and the sauna. The pool spa was not... More

We were very impressed with the accommodation and facilities and location. We give it 10 out of 10. To be able to see the beach from the verandah, and walk across the road to the beach was fabulous. We enjoyed the quieter nature of Clifton Beach also.
