We stayed (2 adults, 2 kids) in a 2 bedroom apt, for 3 x nights. Had close to everything you would need for a relaxing time with the family. Undercover parking, spacious rooms, living area, kitchen with enough cooking appliances to do all your cooking in house, laundry,and very spacious balcony overlooking the pool and pond. Pools and BBQ areas... More

Although this accommodation is sited between the Cairns CBD and the airport, there was NO Telstra phone reception or internet in the room we rented. It was reasonably priced yet the fact it's a black spot is seriously unbelievable. (We rented room 1601 from Short Term Rentals rather than through the resort.)

This is a great place for some R&R. It is a bit out of the city, but accessible by bus. The complex offers several pools and BBQ areas. the units are nicely decorated and come in 1,2 and 3 bedrooms. Small supermarket and take-aways close by.

We stayed here just for a night as travelling down the coast. We booked a three bedroom apt as there were 5 of us. Apartment was super spacious, with a balcony area overlooking the pool. Beds were big and comfortable and overall place was very clean. Throughout the complex there where 4 pool and BBQ areas with seating so you... More

It's more of a unit complex (gated) as previous poster said, with common pool areas. Management was fine, we got there early with a sweaty child who had just been unwell (had to go to Medical Centre off the plane!) and he was able to shower. Not right in town, but we had a hire car. Groceries and take-aways in... More

We have stayed at this resort three times over the last ten years. It is a great place to bring families, it has three pools and one, two or three bedroom apartments. It has got a little run down since our last visit, however, now has new owners again with many plans to get it back to its glory. We... More

THis is an odd resort, it is basically a gated community. Our 2 bedroom unit was fine with a lovely balcony and dining area. We only stayed one night which is not really long enough to gain a proper impression but I echo other reviewers comments about the noise issue and our towel rail also fell off! The kids loved...

After a harrowing experience at some terrible accommodation in Cairns, we were sent here. It was lovely and quiet, fully equipped with even a clothesline complete with pegs on the large balcony. We had fun watching a family of bush turkeys, especially Dad building his new nest. The apartment was very clean, 4 towels for 2 people and the kitchen... More

We have stayed at this resort many times over the years and up until recently have always enjoyed the ambience and beauty of the location. It is becoming outdated though and often noise can be an issue. It is a pity as it adjoins beautiful Botanic Gardens and is being let down by current management.

I booked to take my grandchildren into this 'resort' thinking that it would be a great place to stay but when we walked into the apartment it looked old and dated. The bathroom rail dropped off as I tried to put our towels on it. There was a tennis court near us that my grandchildren wanted to use so we... More
