After paying a lot for a holiday apartment for our family holiday, it was very disappointing ...the reason we chose this place out of all the other options was because of its lovely pools...but you cant use them and enjoy them because there are so many sand flies / midges...my children were covered in bites causing them a lot of...

The best resort we stayed in Top End. The resort has now have lots of permanent residence, this doesn't stop us from going back. We have stayed here many times with our children. We love the pools and the space around the resort. The resort is kept neat, but its a little run down, we don't mind.

I think with a little fine tuning, this place could be right up there. It's in a pretty good location, has it's own store which came in handy. Downfall is they need to provide the little essential items required for the term of your stay eg. Dishwasher machine powder. Apart from that, the staff are pretty friendly.

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.

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.
