Bay Village Tropical Retreat
Ranked #27 of 63 Hotels in Cairns
Reviewed 12 July 2017

With Cairns accomodation being expensive this is a venue which offers value for money. Reasonably central. Staff are professional and courteous. Rooms although not flash are clean and spacious. Reasonably modern.

Room Tip: Top floor to rear

We stayed here for a cheap option, but didn't expect it to be so bad. The rooms were aged and poorly serviced, the mould through the bathroom was filthy and the shower was older than I was and broken. We had joined rooms and the other was no better, with a table that was broken and dangerous, and chairs that didn't fit under it. The pool was far too cold for any guest to swim and rarely sees natural sun light. My partner was bitten all over in bed, but we have no idea what from. The staff themselves were individually friendly, but a sense that they all disliked each other was just under the surface. Our fan was only just hanging from the ceiling, and when maintainance came they said they couldn't fix it this week. I suspect it has been in that state for some time. However, the restaurant is exceptional and our waitress was brilliant- tasty and vibrant food was worth the whole experience. Overall, the place has potential.

Reasonably priced and clean. Enjoyed our stay! The atmosphere is Balinese, as is the in house restaurant which is busy every night. Rooms are large and include kitchenette should you choose to prepare your own meals.

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst we attended the ironman. The apartment is old and the furniture extremely worn and stained. The beds are sinking and uncomfortable. Certainly not like the photos on the website and not Balinese inspired. The restaurant side looked lovely and inviting but the appartments across the road where we were sent need much love. Ripped and stained lounges and our bed sheets had holes in them. Certainly not worth the money we paid to stay there. I would recommend asking where you'll be put when booking. On the plus side the staff were nice.

We stayed at bay village as part of an organised tour, we had a 2 bed apartment which was in a block opposite the main hotel. Everything was ok but no better than that. If traveling independently I am sure you could do better. One shining light is the hotels own Balinese restaurant which is excellent.
