Bay Village Tropical Retreat is a very nice place.Near to the beach and also a quiet place to spend some quality times with your loved ones. It's a stroll away from Malls with plenty of things to shop for. For those who are lazy to cook,no worries for there are foodcourt and also fast food chains in the mall itself. Be sure to also head to the swimming pool area too near the mall. All of these are just a stroll away from the apartments.

Room Tip: Remember to liaise with the management to see whether free breakfast can be added in to the package at a cheaper price ^_^ The breakfast is really awesome there.

We stayed at this (resort) in August 2013. It is ok for budget accommodation. You pay for what you get. Cant expect too much, but I do believe we could of got better for the price.
If you want to stay here make sure you ask for a room overlooking the pool area. We got one next to car park. It was very dark and noisy and I believe was the worst room in the place. The distance from Cairns central is about a 20 minute walk. The rooms were clean and serviced daily. The pool area is very small and only has four lounges which take up nearly the whole area. The staff were nice and friendly and the restaurant was nice. Also you get 5 hours of free Wi-Fi.
I have heard you have to pay to use the BBQ, we didn't bother.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the pool area.

I stayed here on my own for 1 night and it was okay. My room was a basic motel style, which was fine because all I did was sleep but I wouldn't stay here for longer. There is better value within a block of here. Staff were very pleasant and service at the restaurant was great.

Room Tip: My room was basic and I suspect if you spend a bit more here you will get a much better room.

The hotel was easy to find from the airport, although it's on the edge of the touristy part of Cairns. It was in a borderline ghetto area, enough we didn't really feel comfortable leaving the car parked on the street at night. It was only a few blocks from the beach, but a bit of a longer walk to any real restaurants or the boat harbor for going out the to the Reef. Room was clean and fine, although not spectacular. Staff was friendly, but not terribly competent at fixing problems. We were counting on the wifi to take care of some stuff at home (U.S.), but the access was slow, limited, and didn't work at all for 2 of the 5 days we were there. They didn't even refund any of our money despite the fact we didn't get to use the prepaid wifi, and they still charged us the full $30 we had to spend to make an international call at 1am because we couldn't connect to any internet and had to get a message out during US business hours. (Internet was broken until about 10 hours later.) The included continental breakfast was adequate and probably worth springing for. Overall, just an okay hotel in a sort of sketchy area where you should not go if you need reliable wifi access. (As an aside, the city of Cairns supplies FREE wifi for areas closer to the downtown, while we had to pay for this limited, often broken wifi connection. One reason why it might be worth paying a little more to stay closer to the harbor.)

Room Tip: Upper floor might be worth it for extra safety in this area, although the hotel is fairly secure.

Hotel is at airport end of Cairns so easy to reach by taxi. Pleasant walk into main part of town either along boardwalk on coastal park path or through the streets. Beach volley ball courts and kids playgrounds nearby on the Esplanade.
We were mistakenly given a room without microwave/kitchenette on arrival but luckily I had kept our booking receipt and this was quickly rectified. Our room was quiet and we slept well, just was quite light in rooms with lights on outside . Foyer and bar very pleasant
Cock and Bull pub just afew minutes walk was fun for the kids - very reasonable prices, lots of things on the walls for kids to look at and they got to eat crocodile. Handy little shop across the road for ice creams /drinks etc. The 5 hours free wifi was really useful. Unfortunately bottom of the pool was slimy when we were there so we avoided the pool, but had much more fun swimming in the streams or sea
