Bay Village Tropical Retreat was an excellent choice. Within a 15-20 minute walk from the beaches area, our unit was large, clean, affordable, had in-apartment laundry facilities, a delightful and large balcony and all the amenities I could need. The staff were helpful and the atmosphere was friendly and upbeat. My only negative reaction, as a senior, was that there...

We loved this apartment, and could have stayed for longer. The rooms were very spacious and cleaned every day. The pool was lovely and staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and helped us book several tours during our stay. They have great knowledge of the local area, and can advise which trips to do during your stay. The apartments are...

I stayed four nights here as a solo traveller in December and really enjoyed my stay. My room was huge and had everything you could need, including a small kitchenette area, although I ate out each evening. I had a shared balcony, but, being on the end of the run, this was quite private. The staff were really friendly and...

We stayed in an apartment with one bedroom. Spacious, clean and contained everything you would need. Reception staff helpful and Balinese restaurant adjoining hotel was great. Internet a bit slow. About a 20 minute walk from the centre but Cairns isn't big and pace is slow, so wasn't an issue for us.

The hotel is OK. the location is a bit far from downtown. We stayed at a department in front of the hotel. It was big, very spacious and it had two very good bathrooms, the bedrooms were also simple but adequate, and the kitchen and living room very comfortable.

After reading the reviews, we were expecting our one-week stay to be the highlight of our Holiday of a Lifetime, and were quite excited about it. Sadly, I was in tears shortly after being shown our small, very dark apartment, (208) where we needed the lights on at all times. Our disappointment was relayed to the manager, who spoke to...
