“Great rooms and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012 via mobile

I visited and stayed for one night.
What a fantastic highway exists up to Cooktown...a real surprise...!
Sally on reception was super friendly - didn't get to use the gorgeous-looking pool.
Staff at lunch and breakfast were friendly and welcoming.
The room I stayed in was really nicely-appointed with a great shower and a fab modern look - totally not what I was expecting. There are some older-style rooms in the complex but even those appeared to be clean and really well-ain't aimed.
I want to go back soon on holiday to relax by that pool soon...!

Stayed April 2012

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment and although the pool was lovely and front staff pleasant and always helpful, found the apartment dark and oddly furnished. Not my preferred place to stay.

We stayed two nights with our young children. After the long drive the huge pool was what we needed. The room was clean and spacious. Locations is superb within walking distance to everything.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

Really enjoyed our stay at cooktown and sovereign resort ok but the two bedroom apartment we booked was disappointing expected a kitchen so I could prepare food for my children but only a microwave and no dishes to even heat food up in. Although free wifi had to do it from balcony as not in our room. Also don't know if honest mistake but tried to charge us far more than originally quoted when booked but did match the price I thought in the end.

We stayed one night and at the back of the resort which showed newer motel type rooms. Good size double bed and settee facing into the pool area, bathroom of a good size and at least good hot water. The bar and restaurant upstairs served very good meals in a open area or inside ,depends of the weather,overall a great stay.
