All the hotel staff were so pleasant! Free wifi was good. They didn't mind printing and faxing pages for us as we were in the middle of a house contract. The hotel rooms were lovely and we got a nice ocean view.

Really enjoyable stay. Had a ocean view room and loved watching the cruise ships come into and depart Cairns. Room was very comfortable, clean and had an adjustable aircon, which was great. The buffet breakfast offered heaps of choices and was always hot and plentiful....More

Sorry not a toddler friendly pool but across the road in the park there is an awesome kids playground with water play area. And further up the path is a great community pool area with suitable kids pool.
