We've just come back from a 7-night stay at The Lakes. Great stay. We had a two bedroom apartment which was very large ... Very impressive. It was clean and had all we needed. After reading previous reviews, we knew supplies (washing liquid, toilet paper, coffee, tea, etc) was limited, but there is easy access to a well stocked IGA... More

Neat, clean and tidy. Once the restaurant is back up and running it will help I think. Mobile phone reception is terrible but that is the least of your concerns if on holidays. Friendly, helpful staff. A few suggestions for short term stayers eg. One week or less: provide more than one bin liner and tea towel. If we are... More

We stayed at The Lakes for 6 nights and we were not impressed. It started with the resort "forgetting" to arrange pick up for us at the airport despite arranging 5 days prior and calling 24 hours to confirm pick up. When we called from the airport to ask where the shuttle was we were told to just catch a... More

Stunning resort with beautifully maintained grounds. The staff/ activities planner were most helpful. This resort has many top quality facilities - lagoon pool, mini sand/ beach for the little ones, waterfalls, spa, gym, games room, mini shop at the reception area (inc alcohol sales)restaurant and even a bar too! (which, just quietly, was a big hit with us) We were... More

Superb resort, beautiful gardens & four stunning pools & a very large spa to chose from. We stayed for 5 days in a two bedroom apt, very close to the airport and a 5 min drive to central city. When I booked I asked for a ground floor apartment if possible, which I was given, the apartment was great, the... More

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
