8.8 Great
Pros:Staff friendly and helpful
Cons:Many people prefer hotels with sand beaches for their rather than mudflats. Loyalty club does not seem to give members better prices than you can find on internet.
8.0 Great
Pros:Very easy checkin & checkout. Very helpful front desk. They stored one bag for a week while we were on a dive boat. Ask about prepaying for breakfast at the hotel -- its $5 cheaper for the buffet per person.
Cons:WIFI/Internet service in need of serious upgrade!!!! Service was slow & spotty, often requiring multiple attempts to connect. Location is a bit away from downtown Cairns.
