Reef Gateway Apartments, Cairns
Shower splashed over bathroom floor. (Management provided extra bath mats). No outdoor chairs on our balcony (which was the car park). Bedroom cupboards had no shelving (a basket unit that collapsed) in one and no hangers in the other. Would like to have recliners near pool. Spa was not working.
