We booked here for 2 nights. I was a bit worried after I read a couple of not so good reviews and when we arrived I asked reception if we had one of the nice apartments to which she replied "they're all nice". Our apartment was gorgeous, very spacious and great views of the harbour and mountains. We had a 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment. There was only 2 of us but definitely enough room for a family of 4. Apartment is very clean and has fully equipped kitchen and laundry. It is approx 10-15 minute walk from the centre of Cairns city, but we had a car so it wasnt an issue for us. It is a very nice walk in along the boardwalk if you dont have car. Parking is free which is a plus. There is a construction site next door so if you like sleeping during the day you might want to check if it has finished. We, didnt notice the noise when we were in our apartment, maybe because we were on the opposite side. The only negative I have is the pool looks like it needs an upgrade. Looking down from our apartment it looked a bit shabby and uninviting. Overall though, we loved our stay here and would definitely come back. Great value for what you get.
