Enjoyed a lovely stay in their one bedroom apartment. The place was clean, bed large and comfortable with fabulous air conditioning. The pool was lovely and not too chlorinated. The only down side was there was a funny smell for the first day or two - was told it was just from the room being shut for a while

We have absolutely nothing negative to say about Bay Villas. Staff are unbelievably friendly, wifi is good, pool area very relaxing, rooms very clean and a nice size, free laundry, fantastic location. One of the receptionists was very patient with us and gave us lots of advice when we tried to book the perfect reef trip - her advice was...

The receptionist was particularly rude and unhelpful, she most certainly shouldn't be in a customer facing role and most certainly not in a meet and greet role, the fact that online it states reception office hours are open from 8:30 is rubbish as we tried calling from 8:30 when we arrived in cairns to arrange an airport transfer and there...

Really nice and friendly resort. Aimed at the laid back travellers who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The pool is lovely and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The staff are very helpful and are happy to book tours, advise you on directions and even suggest places to visit which will ensure...

Visited during January after school hols in a large family group of 11 adults. Great facilities, town is a pleasant short work away, as is 4-mile beach. Rooms are nothing fancy but perfectly well equipped for a short stay. Made good use of pool and BBQ areas which were always clean and available for use. Reception very useful in assisting...

Recently stayed 2 nights, fantastically appointed you will want for nothing, and very well detailed. Within "town" route for shuttle bus. Friendly staff, easy access, with plenty of parking. When the need arrives this will be my accommodation of choice.

The appartment was OK, clean, but somewhat outdated. Service was difficult to find but OK it was X-mas time. A couplle of small pools we didn't use, but a short nice walk to the beach, which was beautiful. Only problem was that due to risk for stingers (poisonous gellyfish) you only should swim in a smaller area protected by nets

I am not sure how to rate the Bay Villas. The location is fine, 15 minute walk to the main street, there is parkingspace (watch out if you have a big car), the front office is more than friendly and it was clean. Yet we were not overwhelmed by the apartment. It really was a little small. Small kitchenarea, even...

Dear Caroline, Thank you very much for your feedback. If I remember well you have stayed in a Studio for the time you spent with us in the very new year. Our Studios are the largest in town.

Stayed here with young daughter for five nights. Good standard of facilities. A bit dated. Very clean. Full kitchen in apartment which suited us well. Support from staff via email beforehand was fabulous. Two things I think could be improved on - 1. Better shower head. It was so tiny. Didn't even wet your back without having to move around...

You booked a studio for 1 night for a whole family of 4 people and this is only allowed if 1) both of your children are under 2 years old, and 2) one of it sleeps in the same bed than you and the other one in a baby cot. This policy is clear and simple enough, it's just common...
