Excellent 10.0
Pros: We loved the friendliness of staff. The position right near the lagoon and (finishing line for Ironman - my son was competing). The cleanliness was such that you could have eaten off the floor (and the man cleaning the rooms was super friendly as well). The kitchen was better equiped than my kitchen at home. You could cook a cordon bleu meal with the equipment on offer! But above all. The terrace. It would have to be the best terrace in Cairns. Looking out to sea and over the Esplanade.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Modern, clean, location
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Given it was backpackers place I expected very basic room, but it was actually a very good hotel room. + huge bathroom + fantastic location + amazing staff + clean and tidy
Cons: There has been major constructions along the esplanade, incl. noise.
Excellent 10.0
Cons: Having to go home.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: So new and modern, I felt like I was in a posh hotel, it was that nice. The rooms and bathroom are lovely. The fourth floor balcony and kitchen are great, and all the guests are respectful and keep it clean. Big fridge in the common kitchen area. Literally walk out the front door into the bustle of the esplanade restaurants and bars. Great location to walk everywhere.
Cons: On a Friday and Saturday night, the sound from the bars below is a bit loud, but just have to close all the windows. The air con times out overnight which could be an issue if you are there during a hotter period - was okay for us in May with just a fan.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Design, cleanliness, location, staff, kitchen. Very nice experience. Feeling like in a beautiful hotel!!
Cons: We were accommodated in room 407- beautiful room but a little bit small when staying a bit longer with one big luggage. Missing space where we could put our clothes. Also if you would install one shelf in the bathroom, that would give better comfort as there was no space for personal stuff. But overall nothing to complain, just suggestion.

Pros: It was nice and clean, close enough to walk to everything around Cairns
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Gabe was amazing, he gave me a tour of the hostel and introduced me to all the other guests by name, he was very friendly and made everyone feel at home. He even left on the outdoor shower lights for me after I finished a late shift at work. The hostel was very comfortable and I would definitely stay here again, or recommend it to friends. Great value for money.

Pros: We love the outdoor shower facility and good atmosphere. The staff are amazing.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: Travellers Oasis 'seems' like a backpackers - but it is so much more. I had complete privacy in my room and the great little table and chairs just outside which were ideal for work. When I wanted company, there were always people in the common area and everyone (especially the owners) were welcoming and relaxed.
Cons: Can't think of anything.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: Room very nice space with air con and power outlets.
Cons: The signs in the bathroom looked like dirt in the drainer.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The food was really good
Cons: The breakfast was a little bit late
Excellent 10.0
Pros: We loved our stay at Why Not so much that we stayed for a month in there. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the wifi is a dream, the pool was gorgeous, there’s plenty of space to enjoy the evenings. All facilities were clean and well maintained. The kitchen was so big that it was a pleasure to cook in there and the rooms were very comfy. The burgers from Lush on-site are amazing! The happy hour at the bar is so cheep too! Thank you so much for having us- we couldn’t recommend more!
Cons: We couldn’t say anything bad about this place, but if we have to say something, the pool table is sloppy, but it wasn’t an impediment to use it and have a good time anyway (and it’s for free!!)
Excellent 9.0
Pros: - very friendly staff - free breakfast is a plus - bit out of town but the shuttle bus makes up for it
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Lovely, welcoming, great environment with a shuttle bus and easy walk to all I needed. Kitchen and fridges etc excellent. I enjoyed the pool.
Cons: The bathroom was tiny with no hookS or shelf to put anything - not even a soap dish in the shower and was quite a walk (Had to walk outside) from the room.

Good 7.0
Pros: I liked the location but I think the actual room could do with a real good clean. The grouting needs refreshing. There were hairs in the drawer with the hair dryer and the vents in the bathroom were thick with dust. In the good side the actual grounds and facilities were good. The guy who checked us in was awesome and so helpful
Cons: Cleanliness of actual ro
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The large private balcony was wonderful.
Cons: Airplane noise was noticable but not a deal breaker
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Accommodation was quite comfortable, bed and lounges were comfortable to relax in. Plenty of storage space and laundry appliances were modern.
Cons: I would have liked the room to have screens on the doors. The rooms get stuffy at night with everything closed and I would have liked to keep a door open. A few pantry staples would have been nice, even oil, salt& pepper and maybe sauces would have been helpful to travellers that fly and can't bring things with them.
Good 7.0
Pros: We booked this accommodation last minute and didn't do a lot of research but we were pleasantly surprised. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment. The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed for a 4 day stay. The pool area looked great but we didn't use those facilities. We liked the location on the esplanade but others might not enjoy the 2.5km walk to the lagoon/city centre. We liked the walk into town each day.
Cons: The cleaning of the apartment wasn't great and let it down. I felt the need to clean the crockery and cutlery before we used them (including the cutlery drawer as it had crumbs and food remnants), wipe down surfaces and bathroom. The table was sticky but we didn't have a need to use it as we sat on the balcony. The one bedroom apartments don't have an ocean view so they face Lake St which can have a bit of traffic noise. It was quiet at night though so it didn't bother us. Despite the downsides, we found it to be good value for money.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Apartment was great - big, comfortable and clean. Great location for our purpose of stay.

Pros: Zip
Cons: It was noisy, there was no wardrobes, blankets, crockery, microwave, door safety chain, safe. You could spit through the toilet paper, the neighbors noisy shower, toilet and chair moving until early morning kept me awake. The price although modest was still excessive for what was presented
Poor 1.0
Pros: Kitchen , Fridge and Air-condition was fine. Not happy about the sofa bed.
Cons: We booked a 1 bedroom apartment for 3 single travellers. But the room and bed configuration was not the room type we wanted. We were unhappy to find only 02 single beds and a Sofa bed for the 3 of us. The room space was not large enough. In the room description, we were not told that the sofa bed was our option. We clearly wanted 3 single beds and we did not like the sofa bed . However rhe cleanliness of room is adequate.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The gated car park. The staff very friendly. The cleanliness of the facilities. The big TV connected to Internet. Great Wi-Fi
Cons: Lake Street is a busy road. It is next to the hospital so we heard a few times the helicopter. A little bit far to walk from the city center. Lack of cutleries. The bed was a little bit too soft.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: The many swimming pools. The family friendly place. The room size. The general tidiness of the garden. Beautiful tropical Cairns.
Cons: The shower could be improved with more modern fixtures, in our room anyway! (The shower head was terrible) The restaurant service was very poor so was the variety of beverages (no local craft beers like hemmingway and poor cocktails quality). When i need to walk and pick up my plate when the buzzer ring, i rate zero, the service is nonexistent and it's a real shame. Food standard was pretty average for a pub. I was expecting so much more from a place of that standard. But the staff were friendly and it's not their fault. This poor service is clearly a management issue / marketing strategy that doesn't make me come back. I still rate the place high in general. This restaurant is very very very far from a Michelin star if it keeps this way ☹

The minute I pulled back the covers, there was a bug crawling around. I found several more little ants all over the dresser and a large cockroach. There is clearly an infestation problem. The bathrooms were so outdated and had mold in the grout. It took me 10 minutes of being in my room to decide I was leaving and staying somewhere else. It looked nothing like the pictures and was really disappointing.

Good 7.0
Pros: Good location near the Esplanade.
Cons: The unit had a strong bleach smell yet wasn't as clean as expected. Furniture a bit old and the room could be improved with a re-paint.
Good 7.0
Pros: Staff excellent, helpful, Clean Comfortable Kitchen useful. Shuttle bus to airport. Good size bathroom
Cons: Air conditioning not work Toilet seat fell off like riding a bronco.
Okay 5.0
Pros: Location was fine, bit of a walk to food or anything but we don't mind walking.
Cons: towels were stained, fairly old in comparison to the photos on the site.
Poor 1.0
Pros: Nothing the room is fine but services not as advertised.
Cons: Deliberately misleading customers to come stay at the hotel claiming to provide services they revoke on the day itself 15 minutes before their reception closes. Whilst you are still on your commute. They accepted the special request for the services on the day I booked and responded they actually did not provide the a couple minutes before closing and me landing. It was to my disappointment to receive an email notifying me there is no shuttle 15 minutes before the reception closes and ‘after’ I had landed in Cairns. I had booked the accommodation about two weeks prior with the one request to get picked up and dropped off at the given times at the airport. The accommodation accepted these special requests on the day that I booked. Due to my travel schedule I required airport drop off and pick off leaving me to chose the palm reef resort. If I would have known they could not provide me this service, such as illustrated on booking and other websites including their own, I would have cancelled my booking and changed it to another cheaper accommodation. The point of getting transport included was for my work to easily be able to accommodate me when travelling. Now I had to spend extra for services they made me believe to provide additionally to taxis to actually get to the accommodation at night by myself in a new city. Then again I had to find a taxi service during the still dark hours of the morning to get back to the airport.
Good 7.0
Pros: Nice helpful management, good location.
Cons: maintenance- eg wardrobe door fell off, needs repainting, carpet cleaning. Used to provide light breakfast supplies which was a big plus when arriving too late to shop. (COVID to blame for this, but providing some milk and a muesli bar in the room would be great).

Good 6.0
Pros: Friendly staff especially guy in restaurant
Cons: It is an older hotel currently in the throes of a major renovation. There was a fair bit of construction noise going on until after 5pm on the first day of our stay. The bedding and pillow comfort was woeful. Even though renos are taking place ..surely there is no excuse for lumpy old pillows. The wifi didn't work in our room at any time during our stay. We asked at reception and it worked ok down there but not in our room. The staff were friendly and helpful. It might have been a courtesy to have told us on arrival though that they were renovating and that we could expect to hear some noise and sorry for any disturbance. Overall a disappointing stay. We have stayed here previously and been very comfortable.
Okay 5.0
Pros: Na
Cons: Currently Being refurbished
Good 7.0

Good 7.4
Pros: There is a liquor store and a pub right next door. The pub has a full menu of pretty-good food. Although the hotel is far from the esplanade, it is very close to the airport, so an early flight is a breeze from here.
Cons: Pay by the megabyte WiFi-- Horribly expensive. WiFi should be pay for what you need during your stay or, better, should be considered a utility like water and electricity--just include it in the price. The distance from the esplanade was a bit far especially if you are walking.

Good 6.0
Pros: Clean rooms, very spacious
Cons: We stayed for 10 nights and on both occasions had to ask for the room to be serviced.
Okay 4.0
Pros: The pool area was lovely and close to the room. It was good to sit out the front verandah and be able to watch my son in the pool.
Cons: There was various things wrong with the 2 bedroom apartment. Certain areas were not very clean which you would expect. We were promised that the room would be available when we arrived at the complex. When we arrived we had to put out bags in one of the bedrooms and wait for it to be finished. When we spoke to staff about having no iron or enough glasses in the apartment brand new items were provided. But unfortunately these sort of items should have already been in the apartment or replaced before we arrived. This is something I would think should be assessed when cleaning from when one tenant goes and another one arrives.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Beds were very comfortable. It was great that there was an a/c in the bedroom as well as in main living space and having a balcony was good. The pool area was nice. Washing machine & dryer are helpful inclusions.
Cons: It would have been good to have 2 keys for each room. As we were a family staying in 2 rooms, extra keys would have been helpful at times. This was not a negative just an added thought for others in a similar situation.

Cons: The toilet and the shower wasnt good.

Okay 5.0
Pros: We have found Crystal Gardens very handy for us as we travel with my elderly Mum 93 and the ground flood great for her.
Cons: We have stayed here many times but the last 2 have been not so good./ one small cake of soap for three adults is not enough, No milk in fridge for tea or coffee, No jug to put water in to put in fridge which is a must in Cairns climate. We know with Covic it has put things in a spin but we think that Crystal Gardens needs a very good clean up inside and out.

Pros: Great size unit, good location and very good price. It had everything you need for a short 1 night stay or a even for a longer stay of week or 2. My unit was great for a couple or a couple of friends or maybe even a couple with a child.
Cons: It was not stated that you needed to carry your bags upstairs. There are no lifts so if you are on 1st or 2nd floor don’t have a heavy bag.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: I liked all the kitchen equipment and utensils available in the apartment.
Cons: At night there was a few cockroaches crawling around it needs some bait placed around.
