When we booked to stay at the Lakes Resort they had a deal on Wotif.com which included free breakfast and a free cocktail on arrival. In Cairns there are plenty of accommodation options however this one seemed nice, and those added extras sealed the deal. We were very disappointed to find out that the deal no longer existed and the... More

We stayed at the lakes resort for Easter break for 7 days. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This place is fantastic with children. Rooms self contained and really spacious compared to many resorts I have stayed in. The resort is 3km from central cairns so car hire is a bonus (although cab ride cheap and shops, takeaway all close by).... More

What better place to spend a week in Cairns than a condo style resort. Situated right next to the Botanical Garden, this pace is away from the downtown hustle and bustle. You will get a good sleep here and if you are a swimmer, you have a choice of pools. Suites are spacious and well appointed and come with a... More

At first we were put in a room with a view of the top of a childcare centre and the highway. On going to the office and asking why the room had absolutely no view of anything we were given a much better room close to pools (Excellent pools) and a room with a view. Even though there are a... More

Biggest misadventure of our 6 week trip. Arrived in Cairns after dark, searched desperately for the web site promised complimentary shuttle to find they don't have one. A paid shuttle service driver took pity and drove us to The Lakes where we woke the sleeping inexperienced and untrained desk clerk to check in, get a map to wander around and... More

After paying a lot for a holiday apartment for our family holiday, it was very disappointing ...the reason we chose this place out of all the other options was because of its lovely pools...but you cant use them and enjoy them because there are so many sand flies / midges...my children were covered in bites causing them a lot of...

The best resort we stayed in Top End. The resort has now have lots of permanent residence, this doesn't stop us from going back. We have stayed here many times with our children. We love the pools and the space around the resort. The resort is kept neat, but its a little run down, we don't mind.

I think with a little fine tuning, this place could be right up there. It's in a pretty good location, has it's own store which came in handy. Downfall is they need to provide the little essential items required for the term of your stay eg. Dishwasher machine powder. Apart from that, the staff are pretty friendly.

This resort is about a 5 minute drive out of Cairns on the north side (airport, Port Douglas, Palm cove side of town) which is great if you want a holiday where you kick back by a pool and just be. The apartments are a good size, the beds comfortable and the kitchen has what u need for basic meals.... More
