Me and my husband stayed here for 5 nights for our honeymoon. We had chocolates and champagne organised by staff and family in our room on arrival. We had the best view overlooking the beach on the top floor in room 67. The balcony here stretched around the unit we stayed in in an L shape. The rooms were generally clean and tidy with fans and split system air con in bedroom which surprisingly cooled the whole unit!
Therefore, accommodation is good but I wouldn't recommend the location of Holloways Beach for young couples/honeymooners. Even though the beach is sign posted 'No dogs' there are dogs absolutely everywhere! Me and my husband spent 2 hours on the beach in the whole 5 days we were there and in that time we had loose dogs walking all over us, licking us and doing the toilet nearby as we were trying to relax and most of the owners don't even had the decency to apologise. Cairns Beach Resort is 10 minutes from Cairns itself. There are buses that operate every hour from Holloways that take around half an hour each way. We went to the city a fair bit as we didn't find many options in Holloways itself in terms of bars/restaurants. The Strait On The Beach cafe over the road from the resort serves alcohol and food but is not what we would class as a 'bar'. We found we were the only young couple there. There is a lovely place in Yorkey's Knob which you can call a free courtesy bus to get to from the resort which takes 5 minutes. Yorkey's knob boat club has great food, gaming rooms, smoking areas and restaurant with great views over clear crystal waters
