I can't say enough about our stay at The Reef Palms!! It was wonderful and our first taste of Australian hospitality!! Sharon and David are perfect hosts-they truly couldn't do enough for us!They booked our tours,drove us into the town ,helped sort out a problem with my new international phone and were gracious at all times!! The room was spotless,nice and roomy and for a great price!! My daughters enjoyed the pool after a long day of touring!! We walked home one night along The Esplanade-not a bad walk,felt very safe!! Cairns is a great resort area!! It was our first stop before heading to Brisbane and then Sydney. Although we enjoyed our stays at each hotel we always thought Sharon and David's hospitality was the best!! I would highly recommend this hotel and if ever I have the chance to be in Cairns you would find me here at The Reef Palms!!!

Clean, comfortable, convenient accommodation that included breakfast. We enjoyed walking along the Esplanade to the city. Most outstanding was the friendly, helpful staff. The shuttle bus to the city when we needed it was most appreciated. Would stay again and recommend to others.

Room Tip: The suite next to the car port is convenient for after hours access.

The owners of this hotel are delightful, and are happy to help book any kind of excursion (you can even call ahead to do this in advance). Rooms are clean, and there is complimentary transportation into the city. We stayed two nights, but would have gladly stayed longer!

Appartment we had was clean, spacious and great shower. Kitchen had everything you need, also a large bbq at pool side. Owners couldn't have been more helpful - recommendiing and booking tours, providing beach towels and a shuttle bus into the town centre. Would highly recommend this hotel and would definately stay again.

We planned to stay at Reef Palms Apartments for only 2 nights but ended up extending it to 6 - our entire time in Cairns. We were so happy our apartment - clean and spacious - and loved having our own kitchen to cook breakfast. The pool and barbecue area was a great space to spend our evening, and the television, fans and air conditioning ensured we had a very comfortable and pleasant stay. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and there was a scheduled bus that took us into the city centre that ran a few times every day. Still, it took about 15 minutes to walk to the city; the location is very convenient. The only, slight downside was the pricey breakfast, but since we had a kitchen we did a bit of grocery shopping one day and easily cooked out own breakfast every morning. We also had a cute gecko visit us in the middle of the night, but he kept his distance. Overall, we highly recommend this place for your accommodation in Cairns - we will definitely be going back!

Room Tip: We went for the self-contained apartments
