Wonderful Staff with Everything you Need
The staff at By the Sea was super helpful with things to do in the town, and also checking us in and local references. The hotel also has a bunch of beach toys and everything you might need for a family vacation. We enjoyed having the small kitchen to make our own meals after a week of eating out prior. Would highly recommend By the Sea.

Great location, staff and accommodations!
While the weather decided to rain and rain, the By The Sea girls welcomed us with friendly smiles and were very helpful to adjust our plans. We also received a nice gift to celebrate our honeymoon. The hotel was in a great location off the main strip and right near the entrance to 4 mile beach. We stayed in the cute and cozy, which met our needs as we would explore the area and needed a quiet-night stay, great shower and a kitchenette for snacks. Beach gear, bikes, movies and umbrellas were available for guests, too. I would definitely recommend for future travelers to the area.

Lovely hotel by the sea. Best part was their smooth booking of transportation from cairns, recommendation for snorkeling and rainforest tours. Lots of toys, books, and other things to use during your stay. My only 4 star was for the sheets -pretty scratchy. The bed was comfy but not the bedding. Overall I’d go back in a heartbeat!

short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops.
Our accommodations at this hotel was a studio apartment, very spacious, with a private patio and also equipped with a barbecue. Located at a short walk to the beach, centrally located near restaurants and shops. A friendly staff to help you in any way. I'm very happy with our choice!

Room selection
The room we were given was clean but we felt like we were in the basement. Perhaps it was the room rate I selected when I reserved the room.
