We have just had a long stay at Clifton Sands in Clifton Beach. We were sorry to leave, but one must go home at some stage.😂 We loved our unit, it had everything we needed on a holiday. Our bed was very comfortable and I loved the hot showers after a swim. I loved sitting out on the balcony in the evening listening to the waves and watching the birds. The beach is just a block away. We swam in the beach and also in the lovely pool at our units. Linda the Manager was very friendly and helpful and was a font of knowledge about the area. Clifton Sands had everything we needed and more. I would definitely stay there again.

If you love relaxation, comfort, simplicity, tropical beauty and cleanliness then you will love Clifton Sands Holiday Apartments. We have just had a wonderful holiday there; we had booked our holiday for four weeks but enjoyed it so much, we extended for an extra two weeks. The apartments have all you could want, very comfortable bed, full kitchen and bathroom along with a very short walk to the beach. One of my favourite times of the day was relaxing on the balcony glimpsing the sea and the colourful birds. The pool and tropical plants are great and Linda, the manager makes you feel at home and is a font of knowledge about the local area and tours. We are looking forward to returning.

We have stayed with Linda and her dogs for several weeks most winters, and find it just ideal. Although this is an older complex Linda keeps it just so. We always feel very welcome, and find the complex very well situated for us with the beach close by and the tennis club right behind. We will continue to use Clifton Sands as our winter home away from home as long as Linda is there. D & J. New Zealand.

My wife and I spent 10 days at Clifton Sands in February 2019. We keep coming back whenever we can afford the fares to visit from the UK. The apartments are comfortable and if there is anything we need Lynda is always on hand to help. With the beach only a couple of minutes walk away and with easy access by road to Cairns, Skyrail up to Kuranda, or up onto the Tablelands we find this an ideal base for the Queensland part of our holidays. Our time at Clifton Sands is one of the highlights of our trips to Australia.
