Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Stayed here for one night with a family of 4 as an overnighter on our way to Japan.
Room was clean and OK, but nothing spectacular. Room is tired, fans were inconsistent and the one airconditioner in the bedroom was not sufficient to cool the living area as well, creating inconsistent temperatures for sleeping.
Free wifi was not very good and ended up using personal hot spot, and parking on site was limited so ended up parking on street.
Overall OK, but rooms are a bit tired.

Room Tip: Air conditioners in both living areas.

Booked a family apartment, but the pictures on the web were completely different. It was a small room cramped with 3 beds, no sink or hot plate or even a toaster.
Tiny bathroom, standing room for 1 only.
When we questioned the room we were told they were full so there was nothing they could do.
Fire escape (signed on the back of the doors) was padlocked shut, I raised this to the staff and was told it’s ok, we’ll come and get you in an emergency! No thanks!
Some of the rooms looked better toward the front of the hotel, but good luck getting one!

Great place. Relaxed atmosphere. Tropical gardens, some in fruit Balinese style even the resturant is Balinese crusine. Rooms are very well priced. Close to the city and beach. Plus the staff are very professional and nice. Highly recommend.

Recently spent 5 nights at the Bay Village room 113. We were greeted by a welcoming
Member of staff who was very informative, nothing was not too much trouble. We witnessed him conversing in a few languages and he was very patient with quests checking in.
We had one of the rooms by the small pool which was lovely and warm. I can’t comment on the accommodation that was housed in another building. Our room had a large double and a single bed which was very comfortable with soft cotton sheets. There was a kitchen area with a microwave and fridge. The shower was powerful and there was a hairdryer fitted on the wall. We upgraded our breakfast, which was cooked to your preference with plenty of choice. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful, a must to start the day.
Between 5.30 and 6.30 there was a “Happy Hour” which was good value.
Our room was cleaned to a high standard every morning with fresh towels if required.
The promenade was five minutes away and was very pleasant, the Australians certainly cater for families and Children in a big way. We took advantage of the man made lagoon for a swim as the sea unfortunately has a lot of Jelly Fish this time of the year. Cairns was very hot and humid for our five day break before we flew to Brisbane for the First test of the Cricket.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 113 right by the pool/small bar and restaurant. Internet was a little bit Tempera...

Room was average. Swimming pool was very good with sufficient timing. Restaurant was used only for breakfast. It is excellent. Service was average but front desk was co-operative. Equipment provided in the room were working.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms on front side.
