Anonymous reviews are very difficult to respond to as we have no way of knowing who the guest was or what their issues were. This makes it difficult for us to improve our service. We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Regards, Wayne and Naomi

It is right across from the beach and we could easily go for a walk. Whilst the bed looked a bit uncomfortable, we were surprised how comfortable it was. The unit is spacious. The carpark is handy. Loved the lush gardens. There is also a book nook if you need some reading material. There were 2 internet connections but both were extremely slow and often dropped out so we couldn't get anything done in the evening or other busy periods. There is also a restaurant / bar across the road. The music was very loud and didn't stop until after 11pm on the Saturday night and at 6pm on the Sunday afternoon. It is also under the flight path for the Cairns airport so it got very noisy. The 1 complimentary soap was the tiniest I have ever seen in all my travels and the bath gel bottles were 3/4 filled. Good size bath but at the upper level, on the Saturday night which was very busy, the hot water was very limited.

Thank you for your review. The restaurant across the road had a 60th birthday function and finished well before the midnight curfew. The same restaurant has a musician that plays on Sunday afternoon from 3.00 pm until 6.00 pm which we find most guest enjoy. As these units are self contained we do supply a starter pack. The soap is for hand washing. We supply bath gel, shampoo, conditioner and body moisturiser. The hot water is a continuous system which supplies 64 litres per minute. As Cairns has mountains on one side all planes fly along the coast to land. Regards, Naomi

Nice position in a quiet area.

Stayed here a few years ago and very disappointed with new managers/owners. Pool always full of leaves. Charge for pool towels (petty) and WIFI didn't work on last day of our stay.

We are sorry that your stay was so disappointing. Unfortunately this time of year is very windy therefore the leaves are being blown off the trees. We are in the process of upgrading to Broad Band which hopefully will rectify this problem. We do charge for beach towels $5 per stay as this covers the laundry.

Our stay at Cairns

Pros: The rooms are functional and the staff are really helpful. The grounds are beautiful with balconies looking out onto the pool and the sea beyond.
The Cairns Beach Resort is well located just north of the city across the road from the beach and the Straight on the Beach Café that serves really good coffee, while you take in the simply delightful view. Holloways Beach is within a short drive of Cairns for access to various charters including trips to the reef, one of the islands or other form of charter such as fishing or jet skiing. The resort is also well located for access to the northern beaches and a range of eateries including Yorkey's Knob, Trinity Beach, Palm Cove and a bit further north, Port Douglas. The weather was fabulous, 27-30 in August, just delightful! We will certainly come back to Cairns for the weather, the people and the variety of things to do in the hinterland and out on the reef.
