We stayed in an apartment with one bedroom. Spacious, clean and contained everything you would need. Reception staff helpful and Balinese restaurant adjoining hotel was great. Internet a bit slow. About a 20 minute walk from the centre but Cairns isn't big and pace is slow, so wasn't an issue for us.

The hotel is OK. the location is a bit far from downtown. We stayed at a department in front of the hotel. It was big, very spacious and it had two very good bathrooms, the bedrooms were also simple but adequate, and the kitchen and living room very comfortable.

After reading the reviews, we were expecting our one-week stay to be the highlight of our Holiday of a Lifetime, and were quite excited about it. Sadly, I was in tears shortly after being shown our small, very dark apartment, (208) where we needed the lights on at all times. Our disappointment was relayed to the manager, who spoke to...

Our studio apartment at Bay Village was one of only a few accommodation options available when we booked, so I wasn't sure if it would be good. Turned out to be perfect. We were in the main building overlooking the pool. I loved being able to walk into the bar for a coffee or drink and take it to the...

What a place to stay! We got upgraded into the family suite which was very spacious for two people. The staff were very friendly and always had a smile on their faces. It was a bit of a walk away from the shops but it wasn't too far. The only down side was the beds, they were not the most...

the place was lovely, the staff were friendly and it was in a good location. a bit of a funky smell which i think was coming from the vegetation in the gardens but that was my only complaint! the location was quite good also, only a five minute walk to the lagoon and the esplanade. very pleasant.

my friend and I stayed at the bay village resort one week this September.It is a nice place,very friendly staff,good restaurant for dinner but the breakfast is a bit boring.when you dine there you get a voucher for a free glass of good wine. To the center you have a 15 minutes walk, but along the Esplanade it's nice.
