“Ahh the serenity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2011

We stayed at Coral Sands beachfront Resort for 7 days (only paid for 5 so great deal also). The staff were very friendly, helpful and informative during our stay. I wish we could of stayed longer it was so good.

Thanks Merilyn and Graeme for a wonderful stay at your Resort, we'll be back again next year.

We have been to Cairns many times and just love it. This is our third stay at Coral Sands in Trinity Beach, and can't fault the resort at all.
We had a 2 bedroomed apartment on the ground floor just opposite the pool and BBQ area. The unit was modern, clean and very spacious. The resort itself is located right on the beach front and a few minutes walk to lots of lovely restaurants and cafes.
It has the most amazing swimming pool, and spent many hours working on a sun tan and enjoying the amenities this resort has to offer !

You can't beat the location. Bus pickup right next door.. Beautiful swimming pool. Extremely helpful and competent management. In the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Beautiful landscaping. All questions were immediately answered. Airline and hotel transfers were prearranged. Good recommendation for restaurants. Reservations were made for all nearby attractions.

We felt like we belonged there. The facilities are top notch and well kept.

We found the Coral Sands management team extremely friendly and ready to assist in any way possible. From how to get around to restaurant suggestions to suit the pallet and local things to see and do. There are SO many tours available in the far north it’s so hard to chose. Have a chat with them as they have extensive knowledge which helps you find something that's just right for you.
The room its self was absolutely gorgeous it had everything you need and very clean. Big flat screen TV in the lounge and another TV in the bedroom. We had 2 bedrooms with bathroom, en-suite, separate toilet and laundry. Breakfast was enjoyed on our balcony looking at the exquisite lush gardens. pool and sea.
Coral Sands is literally just across the road from the beach. The weather was sensational, blue skies every day. We would go for a swim in the sea, cross the road and dive into the beautiful pool then lie on a lounge under the sails. Its a 7 min walk to the local shops which have absolutely everything you need, IGA, liquor land, Brumby’s, Butcher, take away etc etc Including a doctor and chemist. (Always good to have around )
The thing we liked the best was just how easy it was to relax. Everything is at your finger tips, beach, pool, restaurants, shops. Sitting on your balcony just chilling out while gazing at the amazing gardens you just can’t help but forget home. There is only one thing we didn't like and that was coming home..........

Coral Sands was a fantastic resort with great amenities for children. We could not get our 7 and 9 year old out of the pool for our entire stay. They loved the beach which was just opposite the apartment. We stayed in a three bedroom townhouse that looked out over the pool and gardens. The rooms were a great size with two bathrooms and a very spacious living area downstairs. The staff are very friendly and there is also an excellent seafood restaurant adjoining the resort. Easy drive into Cairns or up to Palm Cove or Port Douglas.

Scenery
Coral Sands is a beautiful resort and our unit (38) had a great view of the garden and pool area. Our balcony had a sea-view.

Location
Trinity beach is situated halfway between Cairns and Port Douglas, which makes it easy to explore the area, should that be your preference. You might strongly consider getting a rental while you are there to drive around. Should you wish to be closer to the city, this might not be your best option.

If you wish to have a quiet holiday out of the city, this is it. Smithfield, a local shopping mall is close by (not walking distance) and you’ll be able to find all the basic food supplies there. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of it.

Nearby Restaurants
I would not recommend the Italian Restaurant nearby; it’s pretty expensive and not good value for money. Normally I would not mind to pay a little more for good food, but we found that their food had an overdose of salt and lack of flavour. The only perfect dish was fresh oysters which were beautifully presented on a plate of rock salt.

Cleanliness
Our unit was perfect. It was clean and tidy and that's a big YES in the tropics. No creepy crawly or yucky insects except for a few ants which showed up.

Amenities
The unit has a dishwasher, standard fridge, tumble drier and washing machine. You can find most of the needed cooking utensils in the cupboard, which is really handy. Tips for future guests: Buy extra garbage bags and dishwashing liquid. Yes the unit is fully air-conditioned and it works perfectly.

Service
We only had service for one day, although I thought we were supposed to have more, but it did not really matter that much as we are used to cleaning up ourselves. The couple that manages the property are both lovely and helpful people.

Recommendation:
I would definitely recommend this resort and I would stay there again on my next visit.

We had a two bedroom apartment for 14 nights in august. We were really happy with the standard of accommodation. Kids loved the pool and close proximity of the fabulous beach. Trinity beach is a great base for exploring far north Queensland. It has everything you could need- small grocery store,great restaurants, we especially loved Chianti's pizzeria, good bus service and all the trips will pick up across the street from coral sands. The staff were friendly and helpful;thanks for booking all our trips which were all brilliant. If we are lucky enough to visit Far north Queensland again we will definately stay here.
