We stayed in Reef Palms for 7 nights for the first week of March 2013, to start with what you would write at the end of a review; "Yes we will return, great value and very friendly".
The room we had (ground-floor) was great, everything what you need is there, in general very quiet and relaxing.
Location wise "yes, it is a bit out of town 15 minutes walk for middle aged people (50+) but the motel offers courtesy drop-offs to the city several times a day and public transport is only ~5 min away ($5.60 for couples will take you to the bus transfer station) or a taxi ride ~$12.
The drop-off service to the airport on the day of departure (which is sad on its own) takes the stress away for organising shuttle services or taxi's, once more a great service offered by Reef Palms.
The pool is great to cool down especially when you go in the first three months of the year when temperatures and humidity are high, we made use of it every day.
Tours can be organised via Reef Palms, David, Sharon and the other ladies at the reception desk are very knowledgeable and helpful, the train trip to Kuranda and back with the Sky Rail are recommended it was a great day out and well worth the money.
A big thank you to David and ????? (sorry forgot your name), for looking after my wife when she was bitten by sandflies, that makes you choose Reef Palms above any of the other motels/hotels...they look after their customers as they would look after there own.
Belinda (daughter of David and Sharon) and Nick (partner) are a positive addition to the outstanding crew of Reef Palms, with lots of smiles, laughter, kindness and patience we wish you both the best while settling into your new surroundings.
It's great to have this experience with Reef Palms as it makes organising our next trip to Cairns so much easier because we know where we will stay .....at Reef Palms Motel.
