The hotel is modern. The staff are most welcoming. The pool is great. The beach is fabulous. What could go wrong you ask yourself. Well the wifi for one. It is complete crap. In and out list signals. In the restaurant the service is amateurish despite the efforts of Denis the more senior guy. But the junior staff struggle. Our...

3 couple all stayed in tropical garden area. Beautiful setting, pool a bonus as it was very hot and the rooms basic but clean and tidy. Would definately be staying again. Breakfast was continental and included in the price. Winning.

This is a super property in every respect. We were part of a large group which was given a warm welcome on arrival. Rooms are allocated on a random basis so we were fortunate to be in a very comfortable third floor room with balcony and all the amenities you would expect - even reliable complimentary wifi. The beach views...

My husband booked me a mid week escape to get some much needed R&R and i couldn't have chosen a better place. The room on the top level was basic but very clean and the bed was very comfortable and it was amazing sitting out on the balcony of an evening. The views from the balcony are amazing. Breakfast was...

Pros: location, views from beachfront rooms, most staff extremely friendly and helpful (with the exception of 1 receptionist working afternoons) - this was balanced out by the extremely friendly and helpful receptionist in the mornings! Cons: Room was a bit dim with only mood lighting and no bright light for the room at night, stayed in summer so it was...

This is our second visit. Great service and lovely rooms. Beautiful views and straight out to the beach. Kids had a ball in the pool. Spa next door although we didn't try it. Short walk to the Main Street.

This location is great for just taking your shoes off, walking on the beach and relaxing. Close to lots of good food options for breakfast, lunch or dinner and the resort also offers this although we only had the included continental breakfast. This was not that good so we chose not to eat there in the evening. Rooms are in...

An amazing weekend away (despite the very wet weather). Stayed in the Island view Spa room which was lovely. Everything you need including spa to relax in. View would be amazing in fine weather. Room was clean and tidy although a little dated. Has everything you need. Had a great weekend and would definitely be back again.

The hotel is right on the beach in lovely gardens that need some tender loving care. The rooms are tired and rather on the grotty side and none of them have safes in the rooms. Our bathroom had a shower curtain over the bath which stuck to you every time you showered. It is quite clean but the staff generally...

My wife and I went down to Mission Beach (we live in Cairns) for a night to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The location of the resort is excellent. It's near the beach and restaurants. We stayed in the rainforest section which was nice and we had a nice relaxing afternoon by the pool. The only negative were the mosquitoes,...
