We loved Cape Trib Beach house. Family of four. Recently renovated, very clean and extremely well priced. A restaurant with good food and bar. Grab a beer or a wine and wander down to the beach and sit and look at the amazing view. The staff are so friendly and helpful for local attractions etc. Call them directly to book

Accommodation was clean, basic and bijou. My only gripe was they were nowhere near full capacity but still insisted on jam packing everyone next to each other as 2 cabins are adjoining. It would have been far more desirable not to constantly have a neighbour right next to you when there was plenty of options to be more seperated. The restaurant was perfection and we had the nicest steak and our overall food was really delicious. Location was excellent but the whole thing with being so close to neighbours was when it wasn't necessary makes me score this a 4 and not a 5.

We spent a night here and there is a feeling of total isolation. No phones, no internet, no TV. Really let’s you relax and forget the world. The chef at their restaurant is amazing and the food is world class. Wish we had time to stay longer. If you need a hair dryer just ask receptionist as not in the rooms. Kids and family have a pool and lots of walks on the beach. Not recommended to swim as you have to remember this is crocodile county. Winter is just a beautiful time of year to visit Far North Queensland

Do NOT Stay here!!! We originally paid for three nights but couldn't get to bed early enough to leave after our second night. We are not worried about forgoing the money - we just want to go home. We found the Cape Trib Beach House online, and thought it was the perfect place for some r&r as I was recovering from a massive operation. So we set off to enjoy three magical nights in the rainforest. We arrived after check in, quickly put our bags down (it is a very long walk from your car to the accommodation and if you don't arrive before check-in closes, you won't know that there are trolleys to help you transport your luggage), and we set off to find dinner. The restaurant area looks like it fits about 50 pax, it was about three quarters full. I say this because given the size of the menu. It should be an enjoyable and easy shift. Your in paradise and your cooking for perhaps maximum 60 a night. The restaurant was not full, yet all tables had reserve signs on them... a lovely waitress showed us to bar type seating. This waitress was lovely, helpful and welcoming. The only redeeming factor of a very below average dining experience was this bright and bubbly waitress. Yet even SHE saw the food for what it was. We wanted the chicken dish on the menu but were told it was sold out so ordered two 300gram rumps @ $34 each and an entree of Salt and Pepper Calamari. The Calamari came out promptly but was served without lemon or any kind of sauce. I approached the counter to ask if the entree came with aioli or tartare sauce, maybe they had forgotten to plate it? - the Chef handed the confused waiter a ramekin of mayonnaise. I dont know if we pissed the chef off for asking for a condiment...but it all went downhill from there. We recognised the product as 'Pineapple Cut Squid"...PFD sell it so you can simply throw it in the deep fryer and serve...if it was THAT simple - I'm at a loss on WHY the Chef couldn't serve this entree with even a wedge of Lemon. ?!?!?! Turns out - we were not the only ones to ask for Lemon with seafood or some kind of condiment. We ate maybe two strip's and sent it back, hoping the mains would be more satisfying. Nope. Overcooked and very much NOT 300 gram rumps with fake grill lines that reeked of smoking liquid that made the steak really unpleasant to eat. The red wine jus - barely mixed demi glaze...perhaps even just beef stock...with water sparsely spread over the steak. My Broccolini was lucky enough to sport a gelatinous clump of the sauce. Herbed baby chats?....deep fried chats that were cut in half. Not seasoned. Nothing was seasoned. Nada! Another couple at the next table, with the same dish, were confused as to why there Medium Rare steak had come out - BLUE. Both them and us wondering what on earth we had paid for. Both of us knowing that the next restaurant was 20-25 minute drive... We retired to our rooms exhausted and underwhelmed. The next morning we got up to make coffee and make the most of our day. Your accommodation comes with a bar fridge and a kettle, you have to fill coffee mugs of water to then fill the kettle. There is coffee and tea, but there is no milk. There are water glasses but no water jug or complimentary bottles of water. Coffee became a hassle...unless you forked out for coffee at Tides! Are you seeing the theme here? You wake up to the sounds of waves crashing on the shore, birds and creatures of the rainforest sing you a song...you really are in paradise. Cape Trib is beautiful and must be seen to be believed...You are a very short walk to the most amazing beach, were upon return from a brilliant stroll, you can see - *gasp* -  the chef - at one of the tables on the shore, smoking rollies and having a beer at 10am. Great! Food health and safety anyone? Or maybe just dont operate knives whilst intoxicated? Or maybe of youre going to drink....hide yourself away from paying guests? We wandered up to reception to complain about our meals, hoping to get some milk for coffee. The receptionist was not warm or welcoming and seemed annoyed that we were in there. Disheartened we left and spent the day exploring this amazing location. (Whilst searching for other dinning options) We returned right on dinner service, again all tables were reserved and we were seated at the bar again. But the restaurant was pretty empty... We were told the chicken was available that night, I asked, the chicken on the menu? To which the waitress replied - yes but not with sweet potato rosti, it will come with mash. So we ordered two chicken breast, stuffed with olive tapenade and goats cheese, wrapped in prosciutto with a garlic sauce. Sounded amazing and I was sure you couldn't stuff up chicken. Wrong. The chicken came out on a bed of sweet potato mash with broccolini, zucchini and cauliflower...and garlic sauce. But that's it. The chicken was cut like it was meant to be stuffed...but it wasn't stuffed. We saw a couple at another table who had ordered the chicken, approach the counter and complain about the total absence of goats cheese, olive tapenade and prosciutto only to be told by the waitress that it wasn't on the specials board. When it was clearly on the menu. To which the waitress later realised. Yes there was a chicken Snitzel on the specials board... But there was, for $28 a stuffed chicken breast on the menu. So no apology was offered... No refund was ordered.. No complimentary drink or dessert.. It was almost as if the wait staff expected it. This was the point where we realised we just wanted to go home. We could stay another night, spend another $80-100 on a main that was poorly cooked or missing items or we could go home and be able to relax. Which was kind of the whole point of going away...rather expensive lesson but Hay! I wanted to stay at a resort and be pampered... We would have loved to have made management aware of our situation but we saw other customers complaints seemingly fall on deaf ears and yeah...we approached reception to try and talk to them but were made to feel like we were an inconvenience. Its a shame. As during this time were Covid has ravaged our hospitality and tourism industry, when the premier of this fine state is begging us to go out and explore our home state - and you WANT to support businesses like this - yet their staff REALLY let them down. Your chef has no respect for his produce or menu and puts absolutely no love into his food. You have an incredible kitchen, its a shame it isn't utilised to its full potential. You have a fabulous BBQ area that guest could utilise. Why is this non operational? Why isn't there plates or cutlery in the rooms? God forbid a microwave or *gasp* milk! Anyway...we are going home, a day and night early. We will return to The Cape but not to the Beach House. Word to the wise - if you're venturing up this way...look for accommodation that is self contained, with at least a microwave. Pack a picnic kit or some plates and utensils and stock up on salads and BBQ chicken and bread and yoghurt and milk in Cairns or Port Douglas and save yourselves a small fortune...

We loved our stay. The room was comfy with everything we needed. Nothing fancy but for the price you pay we were super Pleased. The resort is right on the beach which was lovely at sunset and the restaurant was nice.
