The place is excellent and the various swimming pools to choose from, had a BBQ dinner by the pool it was lovely. The accommodation was lovely, everything we needed and so close to town and a very quiet place and with secure parking for the vehicles.

We rented a 2 bed apartment and the upside was that it was quite spacious with a secure parking space provided. However the aprtment was rather tired looking and in need of upgrade due to a lot of lack of care and attention. No wi-fi in apartments so need to go to reception to plan your day which is very...

The room and facilities were good for a family. The gym was decent and pools were an absolute hit for the kids travelling with us! The staff provide great information for local attractions for those unsure. Sure, there are bugs but you're in the tropics, it's unavoidable at a resort. Definitely returning in future.

A lovely place for a short stay, nice, clean well equipped apartments, Great swimming pools and BBQ facilities, the ground staff are friendly and helpful. However, the midges are really bad, the road and the accompanying speed humps are noisy. Our main problem came when we vacated our long term rental, they made it very difficult to get our bond...

5 of us and we were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment instead of 2 which was greatly appreciate. 3rd floor overlooking the pool was nice and less noisy but it was a quiet time before school holidays. Staff was friendly. The resort is clean with lovely greenery. The pools were a welcome relief from the heat. Some parts of...

Do not consider a room near the main drive in as the speed bump clatter will drive you mad. Lots of midges arrive in from the nearby swamps and will eat you alive day and night.Lots of short term renters and air b and b types whom party the night away with gay abandon so don't plan on a good...

The Lakes is a lovely place to stay. Undercover car park, nice big rooms in the apartment, great water pressure in showers. 4 pools to choose from. Plentiful breakfast from The Edge Bar and Grill. We'd stay again.

When we booked I requested a ground floor appartment due to my partner using a walking stick, unfortunately I didn't stipulate no stairs! This resulted in having to climb about 20 stairs from the garage the entrance even though it was a 'ground floor'. This also meant dragging suit cases up the steps, there are no ramps or elevators so...

This is our fourth time in Cairns and third visit to The Lakes Resort. Reception staff can't do enough. The rooms are well laid out with dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and coffee machine. I can't recommend The Lakes enough. We arrived mid afternoon after an overnight flight from Bangkok. The only thing to do was to spend an hour chilling...
