    Superb

    The accommodation was even better that I expected from the website. So close to everything that we wanted.

    The big issue I had was that there were a lot of ants in our kitchen area. We had other friends staying at the resort and they didn't have that problem. We had a baby with us so it was a big issue for us.Also booked a superior room with sea view which is what I was expecting but I think sea view was exaggerated unless you went out to the far corner of the balcony you couldn't see the sea.

    It was very clean with all necessary facilities in the apartment. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The beach, bus stop, eating places and few local shops were all very close. The Manager, Lyn, was very helpful and always very pleasant. I would certainly recommend this resort.

    Superb

    Welcoming and helpful staff at reception. Happy service staff. Very pleasant and well maintained grounds and facilities. Excellent pool and spa. Clean comfortable rooms and good laundry service. Quiet location and handy to the beach and local dining. Only a relatively short drive to Cairns CBD, Smithfield Shopping Centre and other major beach locations. Good parking area.

    I'm sure that any reasonable concerns we may have expressed would have been promptly attended to.

    We loved this place. It is right on the beach. We had a whole apartment to ourselves including a small kitchen, laundry closet, bedroom, living room, dining area and balcony that overlooked the pool and the ocean beyond...the tropical trees, the sound of the surf...what's not to love???

    We read the reviews earlier and one or two people complained about the lack of regular hotel amenities...like clean towels. We realized this was a different deal and had no problem doing the laundry ourselves while we were here. The price was great and having our own apartment for the week felt like we lived there for real. Plus the Aussies are such friendly, nice people...wonderful experience all around. Oh, there were also some complaints about the airplanes overhead as the property is near the airport. It's true, there were a few but they didn't bother us at all. We were actually very sad to leave and return to "real" life.

    Very good

    Good value with room rates. Lyn very helpful and friendly, liked having water view and the tropical gardens around the pool were beautiful.Pool also was a great size.

    Would of liked to have had foxtel and expected there to be a dishwasher. Out of the resorts control but several loud late night domestic disputes on the beach on a Friday and Saturday night.

    Good

    The friendly staff, the reception staff were great.

    The unit furniture could have been cleaner, the dust was matted into the ratten chairs and the appliances ie., toaster, pans, plates etc were very old.

    We had a wonderful holiday and the Managers Glen & Lyn were exceptional. Not only did they allow us an extremely late check-out at no extra charge they took us to the airport when our taxi didnt turn up.

    This is a great place to stay! We love quiet, comfortable apartment-like rooms with easy access to transportation, markets and smaller restaurants, and that is exactly what we found with Cairns Beach Resort. Lynne is the manager and was extremely helpful with planning and arranging activities at the front desk. She saved us a lot of money too. We loved the "out-of-the-city" location and most tours picked us up last and dropped us home first since we were last on the way to most attractions, so that was great too. The grounds were gorgeous and the room had everything we needed. I highly recommend a stay here if that sounds like what you are looking for.

    We had no negatives really... we had a great stay!

    It's location coupled with the swimming pool and grounds

    The cleanliness of the room and appliances left a lot to be desired for a supposed 4-star Resort.The furnishings are in a poor state of repair.

    Great location, we are so glad we didn't stay in Cairns. Good facilities around Holloways Beach made it easy to either dine in or out. Lyn at reception organised us to get in our room earlier as we arrived in Cairns at 4.30am. We were so grateful.

    If I had to be picky I'd say the room decor was not to our taste. Yellow does nothing for me.

    Only the location and the pool was very nice, but small.

    The hotel rooms need a long overdue upgrade. For the cost of the room the value was way overstated. You could smell mold in the room and a large stain was present on the carpet in the bedroom. There was no DVD player ( but you could rent on), no music, and the TV was outdated, very small for the room with only three chanels. Also, we book a Superior Sea View room and we can tell there is no such view from where we stayed and payed for!!
