For the money, I think this hotel is pretty good value. We stayed on 2 different occasions in March and paid different prices each time. The 1st time we got quite a small room, but it was clean and everything worked fine. The 2nd time we paid a bit more and got a much larger room upstairs and it had...

The Bay Village Tropical Retreat was a nice place to stay in Cairns. The location is a bit outside of the city center, but it was not a hard walk to get there along the Esplanade. It takes about 20mins to walk. I stayed in a standard room and found it very clean and comfortable. The room was not overly...

A great place to stay if you don't mind a 20 minute stroll into town, which we didn't. Set back on a street parallel to the Esplanade means you're not too far from the town but far enough away for some peace and quiet. Staff here were absoluely excellent, helpful from the airport pick up, to directions, to restaurant suggestions,...

The room I stayed in was clean and quite spacious. The bathroom was also clean and decent size. I had microwave, mini fridge, kettle, toaster, cutlery, dining table and chairs in my room. The staff were very helpful and nice. They do transfer from/to the airport. It's about 15-20 mins walk to the marina/city center, but I didnt mind as...

We stayed at the Bay Village Tropical Retreat twice over the Christmas holidays; in two separate units, one before and one after a four day live aboard scuba trip to the Great Barrier Reef. We wanted space, comfortable beds for our group of 5 adults, good showers and in-unit laundry facilities. We got the space and laundry facilities in their...

The resort was excellent! The room was very spacy which was really nice, we even got upgraded because we asked for twn beds and the twin rooms were occupied. The breakfast was very good, much netter than in other similar hotels during our stay in Australia. The staff was very helpful and fluent in several languages. Hotel is located a...

We stayed four day in the Bay Village and we really enjoyed and felt comfortable there. The rooms were generous and very clean. All of the reception staff were very kind and helped us out finding the right tours. They have a very personalised and familiar service. The balinese restaurant next door is prize-winning for several years. We would everytime...

My husband and I stayed with our baby at the Bay Village Tropical Retreat for five days in summer 2011 after having travelled from Darwin to Alice Springs in a campervan. After three weeks in a campervan, the hotel was a real treat for us. The room had plenty of space. They actually gave us a free upgrade so that...

The hotel is pretty, with a small but nice pool in the courtyard and decent rooms. The location is a bit removed from the rest of the Cairns city area (such as it is) but I didn't get a chance to really walk around so I can't stay how long it'd take to get from one place to another. One...
