We have stayed here for 2 weeks in the caravan part of the Beachcomber complex and loved it. Plenty of clean modern amenities, great pool, lovely shady sites which you need in a tropical environment. The Happy Hour with cut prices in the bar overlooking a beachside sunset over Hinchinbrook Island makes you feel totally relaxed and definitely creates the...

I loved the little village of Cardwell. The Beachcomber Motel which is part of a caravan park is located just across the road from the beautiful bay. The motel unit was comfortable however there was no Foxtel as advertised and no free welcome drink as advertised. And as we stayed 2 nights there was no service of the unit. We...

Good Evening, Thank you for your review. We're very glad to hear you enjoyed your meal at our onsite restaurant. Much to our disappointment, Foxtel was unavailable to our guests for a short period of time due to a technical fault within the connections. Whilst this was out of our control we are sorry you weren't able to enjoy this...

My husband & I & our toddler thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the weekend. The poolside villa had everything we needed, was clean & comfortable. The owner's were super friendly & went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The park was full of holiday-makers & all seemed to be loving their stay. The meals from...

I really don't know where to start. I was looking for somewhere handy to Cairns to spend some time away fishing with my 9 yr old son. Our journey began at 5.30am towing a 6 metre boat from Cairns. On arrival into Cardwell at 8am I mentioned to my son it was far to early to check in but we...

Stayed in this caravan park last year and were very satisfied with it so booked again for one week in the same month this year. When we arrived we discovered there are new managers and somehow in the changeover, the site we had booked had disappeared. We had selected a particular site as it was the only one of a...

Farrah I, Manager at Beachcomber Motel, responded to this review

Good Morning, We're sorry you were disappointed with your stay. The loss of the site in which you chose last year was due to cabins being relocated to this area. Unfortunately, as myself & my husband began here after this was done it was impossible for us to know who had been moved from these sites in the process, as...

Stayed 4 weeks on a powered site. Sites tend to be small but most have pads. All sites have well maintained grass. There are plenty of sites with shady trees if desired. Overall this is a very attractive park and truly dog friendly. We are travelling with a Rhodesian Ridgeback who was also made very welcome and the tropical vet...

Spent a night in the motel en route to Cairns. Large room with Foxtel. Lovely view across the sea to Hinchinbrook Island. Best restaurant in Cardwell. Knowledgable young managers know the area well and able to highlight local points of interest. Enjoyed visit to nearby waterfall and rainforest walk as well as visiting aboriginal art display across the street.
