My family and I had a very nice room on the legion. Duck would come and visit ever morning which my 3 year old daughter absolutely loved and we also had kangaroos all around the grounds to look at. Good location, only 5 min walk from the beach and a 20 min drive to Cairns. There's not a strip of shops like in Port Douglas and jut as busy but If you want a very quiet relaxing holiday this is the place to stay.

Located 250 metres from the beach and 500 metres from Trinity Beach shops, this resort is one km from The Great Barrier Reef …More
We wanted a hotel away from the business of Cairns but still close enough that we could get to the airport and the Great Barrier Reef easily. The hotel was very well priced and the rooms were very large. We ended up with a two bedroom apartment overlooking the ocean, complete with a kitchen (with all the necessary appliances), living room, porch, two bathrooms and a laundry room. We really appreciated having the laundry room since we were halfway through our 2 week long vacation and it was nice to be able to clean our clothes.
There are a few really good restaurant choices within walking distance. About a 5 minute walk to the swimmable part of the beach (they have a jelly fish net to protect you from stings). The owners were really helpful. We were able to book the trips we were interested in through Eddie, and he made sure we had transportation to and from the hotel since we did not have a car. We also got complimentary airport pick up and drop off.
Found the fridge noisy at night - considering it is alongside bedside. Other than that the room and facilities were comfortable. Watching tv got a little tiresome having to sit on chairs but unfortunately there is no room for a comfortable couch. To watch tv from bed got uncomfortable during the day, but of course lying in bed at night was ok to watch.
