We stayed in one of the flats on the opposite side of the street in a two bedroom unit. We had a couple of issues with leaking taps and not enough cooking utensils and dryer not working but the staff helped in fixing these problems straight away only complaint is no B.B.Q at these units. We stayed there 11th August... More

We stayed with our family in one of the flats on the opposite side of the street. Two bedrooms, a large diningroom with kitchen and good equipped bathroom made our stay to luxury one. Only the dishwasher was a little bit small. We stayed here in July 2011.

I stayed at the hotel for night in a 2 bedroom apartment with my wife & 2 children, for one night; saturday 12th July 2014. I found adequate in almost every way, fresh & clean. Unfortunately, others wanting to stay here shouldn't expect a hot shower or bath. The 2 bedroom unit includes 2 bathrooms, 1 of which includes a... More

We stayed at the Bay Village Tropical Resort twice when in the Cairns area this past month. Open air, quaint, and a very short walk to all the downtown restaurants and area attractions. We had a studio room which comprised of a twin and single bed, small kitchenette area, table, microwave, refrigerator, table, small bathroom with shower, large screen tv.... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment for a week. Overall I would have to say I was really happy staying here. The prices are affordable, the rooms are clean, there are air conditioners in every room, and it's a short walk from the centre of town. The staff were friendly and helpful when ever we needed anything, and we... More

The Balinese restaurant was just superb and you could also get takeaway which was handy. We looked into this place beforehand and knew it was approx 25min walk to... More

We stayed here for one night after a 7 day dive trip. The foyer and pool area are very nice , designed on a Balinese theme, with the rooms off this central area. We had a studio room which was spacious with a comfy bed, but furnishings were quite tired. On the surface, it looked quite clean, but after walking... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and found our stay quite comfortable but nothing special. Rooms were clean and spacious. We found it was a long walk to the downtown core and dock area but I suppose the exercise was good for us. Took a taxi once and got stiffed by the driver who pretended to not know where... More

The hotel was decent enough, but below our expectations. Quite a long walk to all the restaurants and the cairns lagoon.The staff is quite friendly and helpful. We had come der for our honeymoon and i feel we made the wrong choice by choosing this place.
