Dissapointed with expectations
The pools are the highlight with little else to convince me to ever return. Rubbish in room on arrival, out of date coffee pods with no milk attachment, plates missing yet no checklist supplied to verify quantities (only found out adter raising the question the following morning, $5 for pool towels and tennis rackets, broken air-con in one room... lucky it was stuck on 3 degrees during a hot period, iron needed replacing after the face was covered in melted plastic, no housekeeping unless greater than 7 nights stay... next time ill stay closer to the town centre.

Weekend trip to Cairns
Nice lay out, Nice Pool, Quiet
Overall nice resort a little too far out of town and I found the notice from housekeeping to do all your own dishes and empty the bin before you leave a bit odd but other than that would probably stay again if I had my own transport.

Great place, rooms were ok
Pool, location and staff
Great pool and friendly staff, however photos don't accurately depict the rooms. Carpet is old and blinds are worn out and old. Kitchen is great with all you need to cook. Good value for money. If you're wanting a newer hotel then this is probably not the place for you

Great place to stay
Didn't have any problems the staff were helpful. Good clean self contained unit had everything we needed. Cafe food cheap but better food on the Cook highway look out for the Asian restaurant near 24h supermarket.

Room size, pools, location

Wedding visit
Location, amenities,security
We were in room 906 and for the stay we listened to the floor above bang and knock things on the floor all day most of the time. The sound seemed to transfer through a paper thin ceiling. We also had to listen to the a child riding some hard wheeled toy around the whole apartment and scream at bath time. And this constant noise happened from 6am to 7pm any chance of a sleep in was impossible, this ruined the holiday.

Hidden Charge
Location, pools and tennis court
We had a very pleasant stay, but the accommodation itself is a little tired. The pool areas are all fantastic and great for young children. I was very disappointed to be charged an extra $245 after we had stayed for a fold out bed for a 2 year-old which we were uninformed about, especially since the room is only serviced once - a bit hard to justify that level of additional expense.
