"Great little (big) place" The Lakes Cairns Resort & Spa Tip by MissyLiss

The Lakes Cairns Resort & Spa, Cairns: 583 reviews and 6 photos

We stayed there for four nights Nov 7-10 2011 and found it really lovely. We stayed in a deluxe 2 bdrm apartment and it had everything you'd want - dishwasher, good sized fridge, gas hobs and even an oven!! Only downside was we only had one bathroom and the toilet although separate was very close to the living room which wasn't very private. Washing machine and dryer were great and heaps of storage and cupboards for all your stuff. Had double sink and shower over spa bath. Even outdoor/indoor courtyard (we were on 3rd floor) with 2 ranchsliders opening up. We had a great time, popped across the way for a drink from the bar, spent a lot of time in the pools which were always very clean and sparkling. The whole apartment was clean and tidy. It's great for families. It is on the flight path but you don't really hear it and pretty much all of Cairns is on the flightpath as the airport is only 2kms from the main centre. Flights start at 6am-ish and finish about 6pm-ish. I didn't hear them in the morning - only when in the pool during the day.

Unique Qualities: It has 4 pools including a lap pool, sand which is raked daily, a carwash bay, undercover carparking, a restaurant, bar and even a 24 hour store - although rather expensive. Also a playground for young kids and a games room for the older ones!
