We spent 5 nights at the Lakes Cairns Resort & Spa recently. The setting is really beautiful - the palm trees, gardens and the 4 swimming pools. Our 2 bedroom unit was spacious and very clean. Beds were firm but comfortable. Airconditioning units and fans in both bedrooms plus the living room made it very comfortable. Our children aged 14 & 10 had plenty of room and really enjoyed it. The TV was the only downside - small and old with limited reception, but we weren't there to watch TV so it didn't really matter much to us. We have travelled overseas and in Australia a lot, and this resort really is one of the best we've stayed at. Would happily stay there again.

Fantastic resort, staff were excellent. Great location and the shuttle bus service is a great addition. The only downside was having to climb two flights of stairs with suitcases to get to our room :(

The place is very noisy at night and does not allow a good rest. The staff is arogant and not helpful in controling the noise

We have a young family, so The Lakes is a wonderful place to chill out. We usually stay in the 2brm deluxe apartments which are great value and heaps of room for the kids to run around in.
The pools are wonderful no matter what stage your child is at for swimming.They range in depths. There are bbq facilities and two restaurants available one with a take away option. Great if you want the night off!

Stayed in a 1 bedroom fully self-contained apartment with all mod-con's & we loved it! The only drawback was a slightly too firm bed but other than that a great place to stay. The apartment was spacious & comfortable, and also had a furnished deck. The grounds are beautifully landscaped & well-maintained, & include 3 pools. The location, while not on the popular Cairns Esplanade, is handy to most attractions in Cairns including the trendy Edgehill suburb, the Botanical Gardens & the rest of the Cairns Cultural precinct. We're already planning a return visit!
