Girlfriend booked us on a voucher deal to stay 5 nights at the lakes as a christmas present for a vacation over the new years period.
Check in was handled very well considering our flights got us into Cairns by 10am - well prior to 2pm check in. Bags stored with no hassle and the reception staff were very polite.
First day it bucketed down with rain and having no car, we were reliant on eating at the restaurant on the premises. To save us from becoming soaked, they sent a golf buggy down to pick us up (we were at the far end of the resort) and took us to and from the restaurant. Very good service.
Restaurant was reasonable - a bit overpriced and I considered it a bit rich to be paying high prices by melbourne standards for the food that was served but it was tasty and convenient. Did a good pizza too! Service staff weren't bad although occasionally a bit misleading (asked if meal came with any sides, they said no, so i ordered fries at extra cost only for the dish to come out with mash potato)
Hired a car whilst there, had no problems getting in or with parking as others have mentioned prevously.
Probably 3 or 4 different pools to try out - did tend to get a little crowded during the day but it was summer and peak season so understandable from my point.
Rooms were good - we had a 2 bedroom apartment even though it was just the 2 of us (good voucher deal). Have no complaints in regards to noise and we were there new years eve and all.
Main drawback on this place is it a distance from the cairns cbd and from the beaches but otherwise it's good
