Room was huge...two bedrooms, inside and outside dining, large kitchen and lounge, pools everwhere. Wifi did not work in the rooms. Better with a car. Had to catch bus into central area. Reasonable price.

We've stayed here on and off over the last 6 years or so, and each time sadly the place seems to fall further into disrepair. The gym is closed as equipment not safe for use, tiles are loose around apartments and the pool, and most mornings dead leaves in the pool are left to sink to the bottom. Many areas... More

We stayed for 8 days at the Lakes Resort in a spacious two bedroom apartment, facilities were good and we enjoyed using the sauna, pools and BBQ. Only major problem was the King size bed was one of those 2 singles joined formats which creates a hard ridge down the middle, very uncomfortable night after night if you are lucky... More

Rooms excellent. Clean and comfortable and laundry area very handy. Kitchen also handy as very limited food options on site during our visit. Pools are great and very family friendly. Gym advertised but closed. Peaceful...even on New Years Eve! Good value for money.

Myself and my Son booked in for just over 2 weeks, it was both work and a bit of a holiday. The room itself was very spacious and had nearly all that you needed, but one point the management really need to think about is the incidentals (tea/coffee/soap powder/toilet rolls etc.) when paying over $120 per day is it too...

We booked a two bedroom apartment for two adults and two teenagers. I really liked the apartment, had an amazing balcony with shutters and a fan. The bed was really comfortable, and kitchen was good, especially the fact you got a decent amount of milk, tea and coffee supplied, and there was even a coffee machine to use. The only... More

Seen some negative reviews on here about this resort, and I really can't understand why. We had a two bedroom apartment, which was very clean, and very large with a lovely balcony. There was a problem with the air con in the lounge which we didn't even notice until the maintenance man came the next morning to fix it. Apparently... More

Our back door opened straight out to one of the pools with a BBQ and table area. The apartment is air-conditioned and had washing machine and dryer which is very handy in cairns humidity. Staff at...

My husband and I were here for just over 2 weeks with the Australian Masters Hockey in Sept/Oct. Unfortunately accommodation here is a lucky dip and we dipped out. We shared a 2 bedroom deluxe apartment with another couple. There was one 2 seater lounge in the room. We asked at reception if another lounge or 2 lounge chairs could... More

Our first trip here was for 3 weeks as a family of 6 and we had an AMAZING time (5 stars), but sadly this time I came back with my girlfriends for my 30th Birthday, it was just as nice but sadly they didn't inform me earlier that they had closed the rear restaurant & bar that had the amazing...
