The pool and grounds setting and value for money was excellent, while the faulty colour on the tv and the hard bed was disappointing. Looking over the pool while eating breakfast was a joy. Will return.

Promptly returned cards to front desk and explained that I will...

The gardens and pool area including the pathways to the rooms are clean and very beautiful. This was the nicest accommodations we had while we were in Australia for 30 plus days. It was definitely...

We stayed here for a week. It would have been difficult without a hire car. They run buses into town but its a little pricey for a family and takes a very circuitous route. Local buses are walking distance away, but no shops or anything around the resort. The resort grounds are amazing, and worth spending time exploring. Facilities are...

This is an excellent family friendly hotel. Our package included kids eat free whilst in the main restaurant which saved a lot of money. Accommodation is good and the four pools are excellent. The cost of the poolside bar and homestead restaurant were very reasonable. A car is needed for getting out and about other than cairns city. The staff...

As an Accor Advantage Plus Member, we like comfort and value. This resort in tropical North Queensland presents to us as very good value for money and with more space than many similar to this. There is good desk space and plenty of power points.

With daughter and two grandchildren in a convenient 2 room accommodation. Enjoyed pools, tropical surroundings and location near airport. Would have appreciated free WiFi since third party service offered did not always log off, even when clicked. Would highly recommend to friends,.

Stayed here for a quick overnight stay. Arrived late @ midnight and left early @ 530am. Staff was cheerful and thoughtful. I initially was booked into a room way at the back of the property (which is extensive) but they moved me into a room much closer. Much nicer considering the duration of my stay. The room was clean and...
