Bay Village Tropical Retreat

Reviewed 29 October 2017 via mobile

Stayed a week in an one-bedroom suite and enjoyed the convenience of the location opposite the hospital and within walking distance to the waterfront and downtown. The suite was self-contained and on site was a guest laundry (coin-operated drier and washer, free use of iron/ironing board) as well as a nice award-winning restaurant.

Kitchen/dining/lounge was small but adequate for a solo traveller or a couple. There was housekeeping daily and so was tidy and clean.

The surrounds were mostly quiet even when my room was near the after-hour gate and carpark. Unfortunately there was a constant humming noise from the air-con split system out the window of my en suite bathroom. There were aircon and ceiling fan in both the bedroom and the living/dining areas.

All in all this is an economical place to stay for work and if not staying here, the restaurant is still worth a visit.

Nice place to stay, loved the pool and free pool towels. Little bit of a walk to Cairns shops but we didn't mind. Wifi was absolute rubbish though, couldn't get much if any, in our room. Had to go down and sit by the pool. Great service from the staff at the counter, nice and helpful.

I found the staff very helpful. Fantastic location close to Airport and the Quay. Clean rooms and the restaurent is highly recommended.

I would definitely stay here again. they have a pool and free wifi. If you're coming late remember to get the code to the smaller gate.

Nice place, not for business stays. I could not use the WIFI, told the next morning that the Router needed a reboot. The restaurant staff were very helpful and friendly. have to say the food was amazing. Rooms are very basic, best for a budget traveller. Air conditioning was noisy and smelly. Room was very clean.

Sorry, Bay Village, but I was a bit underwhelmed by my stay. Cairns was the end point of a road trip up the Coast, and the other places I stayed were better.

It was very clean (and was cleaned every day) and everything worked, but nothing was outstanding. The aircon was a bit loud, and the shower water pressure was woeful.

The staff were efficient, friendly and attentive though. They were good.
