No blankets on bed and the place overall has aged and had no attention for sometime. Cafe which is now a chinese restaurant not open during the... More

Our first time at this resort. It was recommended to us by family and we were not disappointed. The Resort was very beautiful. The pools were beautiful. It is close to the airport and public transport. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was very clean and spacious. It would have been great if... More

I had the Lakes recommended by two people so booked even though there were a few bad reviews on Trip advisor. The resort is very good and well maintained with multiple swimming areas. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment and when we arrived at reception was happy with the look of the place and the staff. We were given our... More

On arrival late at night we given a map to our rooms around 300m away. My elderly parents were not... More

Good Location, 2 Bedroom apartment with lots of space, full kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The property has 3 different swimming areas which were great. The resort in general was really tidy and well maintained. A few negatives that wouldn't necessarily stop us from going back but are worth noting:- rubbish in the carpark was left from Sat when we checking... More

The Lakes is good value for family or group stays. The apartments are clean, secure and very comfortable. Add in the pools, spa and sauna (which the kids loved) and it's a good spot to base yourself in around Cairns. Polite staff a bonus. We were very satisfied.

The resort accommodation is ideal for families with children. The apartment we stayed in was comfortable and spacious with all amenities including a coffee machine (bonus!). The bathroom had signs of mould, probably due to insufficient ventilation,no windows and humidity. Carpets could do with a clean. The resort offers a number of pools, all of which were well maintained. I... More
