We stayed in Unit 16 - top floor. It is a very specious and lovely unit with wrap around balcony. Lift to door so no stairs to navigate. Managers are very helpful. The front view offers beach and ocean views whilst the back balcony (from the bedroom) faces a rainforest. At times there were wallabies grazing out the back. So... More

Our third visit to Argosy. We are retired and not looking for a busy resort. Away from the crowds, but close enough to all facilities, cafes restaurants, shops etc. if needed. Across the road from the beach the apartments are well appointed, and well run by Karen & Angelo.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the complex was very well maintained. It's only a short drive to Cairns and Port Douglas from Argosy, however you get to skip... More

Close to Palm Cove but not in Palm Cove. That's what makes this place so great. A quiet beach, a great pool with well kept facilities. Very clean. Managers on site who can help you with any issues and a tour desk. The best!

Agrosy on the beach was conveniently located near grocery shops and the facilities were wonderful. It was so clean and the kitchen was wonderfully equipped. The balcony was massive and the views were lovely! The pool and spa were great fun and the netted beach is so close. Clifton beach is one of the prettiest beaches near Cairns. We'd love... More
