“Costa Royale - Well Located and Perfect for our Family of 5”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We spent a week in Trinity Beach at the Costa Royale, which is located right on the Esplanade that parallels the beach. Is it luxurious? No, but it is very affordable, clean, has plenty of room, it is situated right on the beach, has a garage for a rental vehicle and has a well stocked kitchen. We didn't have an ocean view, but it was perfect for our family of 5. The staff also looked after us well and were helpful in recommending and choosing any tours, which can be booked out of the apartment office.

We stayed in Trinity Beach in order to get out of Cairns but still be close and to access many of the tourist and non-tourist attractions in the area. It worked great as a home base for doing this. There isn't a ton of local stuff to do in Trinity Beach itself but there are several restaurants to eat out at if you are looking for that.

The beach is great (the water can vary from clear blue to beige depending on the day). Not a boogie board of surfing beach as we learned, but still a great beach with a year round life guard. Yes we swam despite the Crocodile and stinger warnings. The locals advise you to stay out of the water from November to February for stingers and were not the least bit worried about the Crocs.

The pool areas is smaller but our 11 and 14 year old enjoyed it nonetheless. We enjoyed our stay and would happily stay there again.

Hi Greg,

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. You are right Trinity Beach is central to everything but is out of the busy area.. that's why we love it.

Cheers

Craig and Alicia

We recently stayed at the Costa Royale. After an error in booking by our booking agent, Craig and Alicia went to great lengths to ensure our stay went well. The Costa Royale is a great place to stay, very clean and well appointed. We look forward to returning. Thanks Craig and Alicia

Four of us just spent a week at the Costa Royale. We upgraded to a breachfront apartment ont he 3rd floor and it was well worth the extra money. The apartment was spacious and clean with a great deck. A nice place to spend a relaxing week...I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Go for the beachfront

I stayed at Costa Royale for a week in August and was throughly impressed with the high standard of service that Alicia and Craig provided. The rooms were really spacious and exceptionally clean. The kitchen was fully equipped and the rest of the facilities were well maintained. We spent a lot of time relaxing out on the balcony enjoying the beautiful ocean views; we even saw dolphins on our last morning there. Trinity Beach has a variety of restaurants that catered to our every whim. When we felt like doing something adventurous Alicia and Craig gave us fantastic advice about local attractions and assisted us in organising our day trips. I highly recommend spending your holiday at Costa Royale and we have already booked for our holiday next year.

Hi Jemma,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We are very happy that you found our accommodation spacious and relaxing. Isn't it fantastic to have dolphins swim past your front door. Look forward to seeing you next year.

I spent 2 weeks at Costa Royale in June. The townhouse we stayed in was wonderful! Spacious, clean and had everything. The grounds and pool are so well looked after. The location is amazing, beautiful and peaceful and right across from the beach. We loved walking along the beach and it is close to cafes and restaurants. And the price compared to other places was amazing! I couldn't believe I found somewhere so nice for the price!
Craig and Alicia were SO friendly and helpful and had a great knowledge of things to do in the area and tours to go on and did the bookings for us, made for such an easy stress free holiday!
Can honestly say it's probably the best place I've stayed and will definatly be going back!
Thanks so much Bronwyn & Sam

Stayed 7 nights in August 2012 and could not fault Costa Royale. Craig and Alicia did everthing to make our stay so comfortable and easy. Nothing was to much for them and they booked our tours and advised us of the best possible tours. We stayed in a two bedroom townhouse and the rooms were very spacious and clean. We will definetly be going back sooner than later. The pool and BBQ facilities were excellent and surroundings just tranquil. Easy access to tour pickups and public transport to cairns and port douglas. Thankyou so much Craig and Alicia for making our holiday a memorable one.

We stayed here for a week in august with out two teenage sons,I thought it was a good sign when the taxi driver said his brother and his family used the place and we were not dissapointed .The apartment was huge,very comfortable and fully equipped and is literally a stones throw away from the beach. We watched dolphins play in the sea from our balcony one morning.Trinity beach itself is lovely fairly quiet but still benefiting from a life guard and is an ideal location to base yourself to enjoy the numerous activities on offer in the area ,Craig & Alicia helped us plan trips to the barrier reef,the rain forest,scenic railway and the mountain cablecar.The numerous local restaurants all in easy walking distance were very good.There is a small pool with a bathing area and communal bar b q .We would strongly recommend this place for everyone young or old and will definitely be returning ourselves.

Hi David & Sarah,

Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Very happy you saw the dolphins, I usually see them from our balcony every week.. Isn't nature fantastic. You are right about our restaurants.. for our little beach we are very blessed as they are all of a high standard.
Hopefully you will be back one day as you were a pleasure to have around.

Cheers
