Terrible visit to this resort! On flying in to cairns the resort 'forgot' to come and get us despite us calling them 24hrs before our trip to confirm plans. They simply told us to get a taxi to the resort. Room was nice but very far from reception and we had a guest with an injury to their leg. Had... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for a week. The resort is large and consists of individually owned apartments with central management. There seemed to be a lot of permanent residents too. Note that the apartments are only serviced when you leave, so if you are staying for more than 2-3 days you'll need to buy supplies such as... More

I have mixed reviews about this place. Location great. Pools and gardens were beautiful, have to say. When I booked I asked if I could have one of the renovated rooms, as other reviews stated they were better. Sadly upon arrival, we obviously got one of the older rooms. The bathroom was in need of update as the tiles were... More

If your traveling with kids this place is amazing. We stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment. 2 adults and 3 kids and had plenty of room. Ours was 1503 incredible ground floor directly in front of the best pool of the 4 there. Our own pool fence for direct access was so convenient. The room was extremely clean and... More

Having read the mixed reviews on here we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The apartment was spacious and clean with a nice lanai for al fresco dining. It was in a good location, a short drive from Cairns - we did actually walk in along the sea front which was nice but took a while. The pools and grounds... More

We've just been staying at The Lakes Resort with our kids. Other reviews describe it as an apartment complex and that's exactly right. No restaurants and a bar only open for a few hours a week. However, the acommodation was comfortable and the tropical gardens really beautiful and extremely well maintained.We all really enjoyed the variety of pools which were... More

I have Stayed At the Lakes Many times ver the last 3 years while visiting family in the area...& without a doubt the general standards of customer service has apparently fallen to the wayside. In the past I have braved the insects and horrendous mobile phone reception because of the delightful staff and convenience to the airport , But as... More

I recently stayed here for a week with my 2 children and husband in a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the pool. The apartment was okay but is in need of refurbishment, and even some simple repairs (taps, etc. leaking). The furniture and decor is on the old side. The kitchen is well kitted out with all you need. The grounds... More

My daughter and I stayed here in July for the Cairns show to surprise friends. We are ex residents of Cairns so have a good idea of accommodation around town. The Lakes was always said locally to be very impressive. But cleanliness that management claim to be of high priority is not the case. The bathroom and toilet fans in... More
