The room is fully equiped with kitchen and laundry facilities in each room and is clean and tidy. The managers are very helpful and welcoming. They had a shared Christmas lunch with the residents and also invited resort guests making it feel very homely. Resort is very central to major attractions.

This resort is north of Cairns and about 20mins from Cairns Airport. We wanted a location that was handy to other sites and this one worked out about the best option. The rooms are well appointed and fully self contained. All are air conditioned and have nice outlook through trees and gardens. It is not that handy to the beach,...

Clean with good facilities, however its under the flight path of incoming planes. Only 15min drive to airport so planes are quite low. Good value for money. Great to have a kitchen & laundry facilities and balcony is good size. Hire car essential.

What a wonderful place to call home while visiting Cairns. Helen is absolutely the best and was so accommodating & helpful. Resort is well maintained, clean & has everything you could need for a really wonderful stay. Pool area was a really great retreat after a long fun day into Cairns. Local amenities close by and close to bus routes...

Half moon bay resort is in Yorkys knob , best described as a outer suburb of Cairns I would suggest best to have a car with the airport 10 minutes drive away and the CBD 15, the resort is not the newest or the swankiest by far but it's clean well set out and quiet the kitchen is small but...

The descriptions online of this place are misleading. This is not at all a resort. There is a golf course across the street, but they are not connected. The rooms are tiny, and the furniture is uncomfortable. If you use more than your allotted 2 rolls of toilet paper in a week, you have to buy more. The air conditioning...

This is a great little place and we were very comfortable in this northern beaches accommodation. The term "resort" to my mind doesn't quite fit - and we were glad about that. It was very comfortable, self contained accommodation, much like a motel with a pool. It was great to have our own washing machine and dryer and they even...

Visited last year while visiting friends and relatives. Great location, across the road from the Golf Course, the Boat Club is also within walking distance, however they also offer a courtesy bus. Accommodation itself was spotless and included everything you would expect. Very friendly manager. Highly recommended.
