We stayed for 4 days here after having stayed 4 days in Port Douglas. No one was helpful or nice to deal with. We were paying $35 for internet, when I asked for help with it they said it was just our room, so why let us get it. There is no lift and the stairs were hard with suitcases... More

I accidently booked this accommodation online. Big mistake. Apartment cost $165 per night, and was not as good as other apartments I have stayed in for about $135 per night. There was no separate bedroom and loung room, the airconditioner was very noisy, and the hot water system gurgled and banged all night. Tea and coffe is only provided for... More

The ladies at breakfast were very kind! Had to go up three flights of stairs with two large suitcases, but I guess that's my fault for packing so heavily! Ha! Great rooms and great tropical vibe. Also fantastic pools and BBQ areas!

The apartment we stayed at for 4 days was in itself excellent, but during our time the staff never checked our room for towels, bathroom needs etc and this was disappointing. Also the block we were staying in was the hub for all linen, towels and waste and the large vehicles entered the area in front of us and many... More

We chose to stay in a 2 bedroom apartment wanting a little time out from our 12 year old. The rooms were beyond what I expected. Modern, clean, great location and though pools were quite cool we still had a swim in all 3. The office staff seemed disinterested and when more than one was present almost felt tense. Basic...

The apartments were clean, and there was a nice pool layout. The location was good being a shortish walk from the CBD, and right next door to a large shopping mall with a supermarket at the apartments end of it. The apartment had only a microwave in it,and I was convinced I'd read that they were combi ovens so I... More

Cannot fault the apartment but unless you are a railway enthusiast I would give this one a Miss!! These apartments are banked right next to a busy hootin and a tootin railway line which kept us wakened as well as fork lifts working in 24 hour loading depot. The apartments also look directly across a narrow pool at one another... More

We stayed for 9 nights in a one bedroom apartment on ground floor with direct access to pool area (perfect) - unit was clean and had everything we needed to self cater. Walking distance to all attractions of central Cairns with shopping centre supermarket and movie theatres on the doorstep. We certainly did enjoy our stay !

Recommending this place to everyone who goes to Cairns. Great to lounge around by the three pools if you want a chilled out day and great to be to so close to the Esplanade to get to all our excursions!

We stayed here for 3 nights, it was ok but quite small. The bathroom was a good size though. Clean & tidy although we had to borrow an old towel to put on the floor as the air conditioning unit kept dripping. The complex was very good, with 3 swimming pools, barbecues etc., really nice.
