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

We stayed here for 3 nights early January 2015. Loved every minute. We had a two bedroom apartment. Lovely and quiet and great pools. Would return again without hesitation. My daughter lived in the pools. We found reception great - no issues.....

I stayed in a two bedroom apartment (we were two couples) in this resort for 5 nights over New Years - the apartments are run down and reception gave some of the worst service I have ever experienced. Our FIRST apartment (Room 1113) had a terrible smell which stunk the whole place leaving it completely uninhabitable. Following a complaint (from... More

Myself and friends stayed here for 5 weeks. It was very roomy and had everything we needed except the wireless internet did not work at all which was a shame. Other than that it was brilliant. The pools and bbq areas where kept very clean and the gym was well equipped even if small there was almost never anyone in... More

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
