We stayed here for 3 nights in April 2011, the lobby is nice (especially w/ the most awesome lighting fixtures!!!), the room is OK (not sure about 5 star quality), not great, simple, no flat screen TVs, but they have FREE wifi internet in your room which is a BIG plus for us. The pool area is of good size, large pool, and kids pool. It's the best location if you're doing the GBR day trip because it's located next to the Fleet Terminals (where all reef tours take off), it's a 2 min walk right over in the morning. Also, a 4-5 min light stroll to the main eatery area and Cairns Esplanade. I loved the convenient location the MOST. The vallet is very reasonable too, $15/day, unlimited car takeouts.
