I loved everything about this place!! People are genuinely lovely and very helpful, food was great, my room was very clean and beautiful, facilities were great (shame I didn't have time to use the pools). The private beach is really stunning too. 2 nights were not enough. I would definitely stay again the next time in in Cairns.
