We chose a two bedroom unit. It was spacious, well furnished and very secure. Balcony faced the beach that was just across the street. Parking is in an enclosed garage. That was a nice unexpected benefit. The unit was quiet. The one odd item was that the AC unit would either cool the main rooms or the bed rooms. This...

We had a great ocean view from our 1 bedroom top floor apartment. (Room 19) Easy walk to cafes and restaurants. Directly over the road from lifesaver manned stinger net for safe ocean swimming. Self-contained unit was clean and functional with basic cooking supplies and was a good size for 2 people. There was ample off street carparking. Free Wifi...

We came on a frieday, for 3 nights. Before arriving we were told that there is a free shuttle from the airport for hotel guests. When we got there we met a very rude and impatient receptionist who made us feel like she couldnt wait for us to get out of her way so she could go home. We asked...

We requested that this review be removed from the system because the guests threatened us with a bad review if they had to pay for a room upgrade or if they had to pay for the airport shuttle. Trip Advisor refused to remove it and are consequently supporting and encouraging this kind of dishonest behaviour. At no time did anyone...

Our experience at On the Beach overall was pleasant. The water and beach views were magnificent from our building. We were directly across from the swimming area with a guard. The only downside was that there really isn't much as far as conveniences in this town. It was very quiet. This can be a positive for those who want privacy.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at On The Beach at Trinity Beach. You are right, Trinity Beach is far more relaxing than the hectic neighbouring beaches and provides every opportunity to chill out completely during your stay. There are many great restaurants (and take-away outlets) within easy walking distance of course and the Trinity Beach...

This was my last night before departing for early flight to UK from Cairns next morning. Very convenient, ground floor apartment bang opposite quiet beach. Ideal for my last swim as boom and lifeguard on beach across the road..Very clean and comfortable with parking round the back.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a great review, it is really appreciated by the whole team at On The Beach.

The apartments are located opposite the beach, just across a quiet road. The life saver is right there too, and there is a net to provide protection. Nice pool and BBQ area. Staff very friendly and helpful. Apartment is fully appointed and makes for a comfortable stay. Restaurants are close by, ranging between a 2-10 minute walk. Lots of gf-df...

Clean, great location , ask for an upstairs room for a water view. Good value. The apartments are clean , tidy, modern, but not huge. Location is the key for us, as well as quite quiet and private. Restaurants and hotel in easy walking distance, under cover parking for free, and everything you could need ...except funny that you have...

We had a beautiful unit overlooking the beach. Despite our late arrival due to flight delays, the staff stayed to welcome us and show us around. The unit had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The location is amazing and we look forward to returning soon.
