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 It is becoming outdated though and often noise can be an issue.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

Room was flooded due to leaking under sink and overflowing saucepan upon arrival. Bare bones, no tea towels or starter package. We arrived from Canada and had to shop for cleaners etc. No mop or broom etc. Beautiful grounds and bbq areas. No phone so you will need a plan through telstra. Booking agent not helpful at all. Had a... More

Every single night you get to go to sleep to the sound of bogans up all night drinking and playing heavy metal, just outside your window. I've been here for a week now. The sad part is that they are obviously allowed to do it, there are no rules regarding noise. There is no peace and quiet at this resort,... More

Staying in one of the lovely one bedroom apartments was a nice break from staying in hotels and having to eat out every night. The kitchen was well equipped, with a good oven, microwave and even a dishwasher! The staff were very friendly, letting us check in 4 hours early and checking out an hour late. The pools are very...
