The Lakes Resort Cairns, Cairns North
Mixed experience
The front desk staff was not as friendly or helpful as they could have been the first few days. Upon our departure we met two lovely people, who answered our questions and assisted us greatly. So the service was mixed. The accommodations were adequate. Worked for a family, but the area has limited restaurants and is a bit challenging to get access to the center of town with a larger group. Maxi-cabs in this area charge a surcharge to pickup/drop off there. Super close to the airport, so that is a plus.

Nice place but getting tired
Still a nice place to stay but after 15 years it is starting to look tired in certain aspects. Room decor could be brighter and pools whilst good are showing their age. Moreowner occupiers now than 10 years ago, which has its pros and cons

Great accomodation for Hockey tournaments
This was a brilliant location for a hockey tournament! Loved the pools, barbecues, ambience etc. highly recommend. It would be great if the maintenance issues were rectified.

Clean, comfortable, convenient.
Room was clean and roomy. There were a few small issues which stopped me from giving a top rating. Beds not the best - two singles pushed together and were slightly different heights. Cooking utensil and pots and pans needed to be replaced (old and broken or breaking). Verandah doors to bedroom did not lock. Exhaust fans in bathroom, toilet and laundry did not work. When booking, I thought the room was serviced but there was only one service mid stay (10 nights). This may have been my misunderstanding. The resort is under the flight path but it is not exceptionally busy. All staff that we interacted with were extremely friendly. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.
