spacious, quiet, private pool

Pros: quiet, private poo, self-containedl
Cons: door from garage to unit could not be locked
Location: short drive to beach, close to Smithfield shopping centre (movies) and midway between Cairns and Port Douglas.
A relaxing resort. Short drive to the beach. Shady walk along esplanade. Close to restaurants, movie theatres and shops.

Return visit

Pros: Sufficient space and basic facilities for my purposes but all the exterior fences, garden area and villa entrance very unattractive. Disappointing.
Cons: Basic maintenance and repairs of exterior especially. Chosen largely for own swimming pool but very unappealing with weeds and broken fences etc.
Location: Comfortable walk to beach and Main Street if undertaken early or late in the day when not so hot.
While the villa was very clean and quite comfortable generally the surrounds were shabby and tired, the garden neglected and the outside area particularly disappointing.

Great location, yet disappointing

Pros: Always impressed with the beautiful garden setting, lush and tropical. And to be fair, the staff were friendly and polite.
Cons: A more civilised approach to customer comfort.
Third visit to a much-favoured and beautiful destination. Stayed for nine nights, but sadly found the practice of pushing business costs on to the consumer very much in evidence. Request for face flannels and extra towel politely declined. (What accommodation does not supply face flannels?) Two small sachets of dishwashing detergent/one dishwasher tablet and one sachet of laundry detergent. Micro-thin, single-ply loo paper. Non-stick frying-pan had a scratched, peeling surface which rendered food maddeningly adhesive. Two ageing, badly-sprung sofas made for uncomfortable body postures. Plenty of residual grease on resort BBQ Even the humble green pot-scourer had been got at by the bean-counters. It was cut into one-third its normal size.
