The requested room wasn’t as described, requested a room consisting of two Queens although was given a room with two singles . I left the resort early as this inconvenienced me greatly.

Overall the resort is well maintained, lot of things to do. Most of the staff are really friendly, only one staff was rude. Really good value for money. My only suggestion is to keep supervising all areas, particularly pool areas. In one pool area some teenanger were Playing with a heavy ball and almost hit my pregnant wife an my daughter, in another pool there were people smoking in the pool area where, according to the signs there, it it forbidden.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. There are many rooms and yet still so easy to find yours. The outdoor dining is typical Cairns.
