My husband and I booked this in May for a weekend in october. FIVE MONTHS IN ADVANCE. THE AFTERNOON before we were due to fly to Cairns from Canberra...they email us to say that our room has been "cancelled because it has been triple booked" Completly ruining our holiday. The level of unprofessionalism and how they have handled this situation in unbelievable.

So beautiful and so unlike staying in an ordinary hotel room. It feels like it's another world away yet it's quite close to everything. Dianne makes a beautiful breakfast that is customised to your needs/wants. Can't fault this place.

We traveled to 5 different destinations in Oz staying in typical hotels which were all nice but reef n retreat Cairns was our last stop and it was different from the norm. What a brilliant choice booking is direct with owner Diane she was very knowledgable and gave us lots of information. The location was brilliant but you will need a car. Every morning you can choose your own breakfast and the fresh fruit is delightful even trying fruit we hadn’t seen before. Lovely pool and seating area. Definitely recommend to friends 10/10 for originality definitely better than staying in a large complex

The stay at the B&B was excellent! The rooms are beautiful and situated right in the forest, and Diane is a fantastic host. Her recommendations for activities was perfect and much appreciated! The breakfasts were the best we had anywhere on our Australian trip.

Our family spent a wonderful 10 days/nights in the two pavilions. Dianne was an exceptional host, going above and beyond to make our holiday stress free and easy. From the wonderful breakfasts, the well accommodated facilities, to organising trips to the Daintree, the reef, and suggesting places to eat - nothing was too much trouble and her recommendations were spot on! We loved coming back at the end of each day to swim and relax by the pool. We couldn't recommend this place more highly and hope to be able to come back one day. Thanks Dianne for making our stay such a wonderful experience.
