4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My family and I enjoyed our privacy in rooms which were clean and comfortable amidst well-kept tropical gardens and pools. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and assisted us to connect to services around the Cairns district. The restaurant provided comfortable and affordable dining.

This resort is low quality but as the saying goes, you only get what you pay for! The rooms are like a CHEAP dull highway motel, black mould in the shower and bathroom cabinets in need of repair (I took photos). At least the air con and television worked but not the internet service so we had to use our... More

This resort is built on about 10 acres and has three pools and, according to the map a jacuzzi/spa, restaurant, indoor and outdoor bars a resort shop and special... More

I stayed here for 4 days from 29/6/16 until 2/7/16 Whilst it's not bad-it's not great either-unless you're easily pleased! Location-nowhere near ANYTHING of interest unless you want your accounts doing, need to buy a motorcycle, some tiles or buy pet food in bulk! Reception staff are OK-not particularly helpful and offer little or no help with luggage or hotel... More

Rooms in the 200 block are basic but clean, we were upgraded due to problems with the TV and air con. Personalised service in changeover by Duty Manager was excellent. 400 Block rooms are above average for a Resort of this size. Remarkably quiet considering the tour groups at the resort. Although a tad out of city centre transport is... More

Stayed overnight and due to problem in room we were upgraded. Duty manager very good and helped with our baggage. Enjoyable stay and would go again. Having own car useful as a little way from town centre but buses not far away and taxis available. There is restaurant on site and good pool area
