Good place, the manager Lynne, she's very nice. I loved my 4 nights that I spent there. Just a little bit far from the city, because there no bus in night so I had to take a taxi, but other then that I recommend this hotel greatly.Thank you Lynne.

We only stayed at the Cairns Beach Resort for 2 nights but we really enjoyed our stay. The room was nice, we had our own kitchen so we cooked our own meals. There are also barbeque's that we used. The hotel complex was very nice, there were a lot of nice plants and flowers and it was very well kept....

This is the second time we have stayed at one of the apartments in this complex, and in years of travelling around the globe it is the only time we have ever returned to the same place for another holiday.

This self contained apartment had so much potential. We checked in on a Sunday afternoon. We were advised that check-in could noy be before 1pm, whih was fine. However, on Sundays the reception closes at 12 noon so while there is a safe to collect your keys and a helpful person available via phone, once in the room, in the...

The Cairns Beach Resort was very beautiful and private. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant across the street was a go to place for us because it was fantastic. We loved everything about it.

We stayed here for a family reunion and could not be happier. Our rooms were clean and we'll furnished. Ceiling fans and air con in rooms, and the ocean side has sea breezes. A good kitchen and laundry facilities included with dryer and drying rack. Check when you book as I think some units are time share or owner investments...

This is the perfect place if you want a nice relaxing holiday in accommodation straight across from the beach. Staff are quite friendly. Beautiful tropical gardens and pool area. You can even grab a book from their library! Eating is not a problem with an outdoor restaurant/cafe across the road, and pizza and takeaway food shops very short distance away....
