    The apartment was clean. Air-conditioning was inadequate, and cut out everytime another appliance switched on.

  • 6.0.Good

    Looking a little dated now

    Not as good as last time we stayed, looking tired, A/C didn't work, not good with Cairns weather. Still OK for the deal we got.

    Well looked after property, I liked the non contact key pickup also the unit was well stocked, my only issue was the stairs because of my knee issue but next time I will request a lower floor this is my fault

    The Lakes - back on track... used to stay here a bit but starting staying elsewhere as the gardens and cleaning left a lot to be desired for awhile. Looks like they have done a deep clean and the gardens are gorgeous again. Friendly, helpful staff ... would stay again

    Sand flies Sand flies Midges Midges(apparently Midges are also a type of sand fly but worse). People have to note that The Lakes Resort is next to swamp land thus YOU may get bitten by the Sand Flies and destroy YOUR skin with the most intense itch EVER. I picked up mine next to swimming pool. BUYER BEWARE.
