I got into Cairns at 18:30 and couldn't believe all the hotels in the central city were full! I only wanted an overnight as I was flying back to New Zealand the next morning. I wasn't going to pay $550 for a suite for the night in the one hotel I dd find a room in, so solicited some help. The lovely lady at Best Western felt sorry for me I think, (they were full), and phoned around for me. She found a spot at the Cairns Coconut Holiday Resort for $180. She apologised that it was a bit out of town (10 mins) but it was now about 20:30 and I was tired so it sounded great!
And it was! The office lady held the door open for me and signed me in, for my luxury cabin. She didn't charge the surcharge and gave me the cabin keys. What a little gem. Normally for a family so I had plenty of room. Very clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. The perfect retreat for a good nights sleep.
I'm sad to say I didn't get much of a look around in the morning but from what I did see it looked like a fantastic place to spend some time with the family, or as a couple. The grounds were nicely laid out and beautifully maintained. Nice pools and a cafe. People all looked happy and relaxed.
I would stay here again in preference to the central city when I return to Cairns!
