Amazing resort with everything you could need. Onsite day spa was a huge drawcard and it didn't disappoint. rental car hire was available on site in the front office, we loved our stay and will be back again

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

The price was good, the apartment was large and really good for a family. There were great pools a tennis court and it was a short drive to all Cairns has to offer. It was quiet at night and the reception staff were very helpful

The apartment was a big two bedroom apartment with full kitchen,a bathroom and laundry. But it was dark, with tiles lifting and cracking on the patio. Did I mention it was a dark ground floor unit! The place was full of midges (sand flies ) which meant if you spent 5 minutes by the pool you had to cover yourself... More

Our apartment was stunning, full of everything you could need. Washing machine and tumble drier, dishwasher. Lovely view from our balcony, my only negative is, the pools were freezing, even in the Ozzy heat. But a bonus, the outside BBQ was great x

I turned up here at 4am in the morning. It was dark and not well lit and I had to cart my luggage to the back of the resort where my apartment was. I was very lucky that there was someone who was staying at the resort coming back from the gym who helped me to my apartment as I... More
