We stayed here for a few nights while getting out onto the Barrier Reef, and a had a great time. We were kind of backpacking, so this was a splurge that really paid off. The suite was huge, with a washer and dryer and a full kitchen - not that we ever used it, as the night market with fab Chinese buffets is right next door. There was a seperate bedroom with loads of room, and fierce air conditioing. Reception helped us to book 2 great trips, one to Cairns night zoo and a reef snorkelling trip. Both were good value and fun, and we felt advised rather than pressured when making choices. The pool area was pretty and quiet with hardly anyone else in it - a real sun trap though, no breeze at all. I'd receommend Il Palazzo - we met some friends staying at The Lakes - which is beautiful but much further out of town. They wished they'd stayed where we did - so there's a recommendation for you!
