                the quietness, peacefull no rushing everthing was done without any fuss no explinations were required. All done in an eficient manner.

              • Older travelers

                The hotel was welcoming and friendly, with comfortable and spacious rooms. Having some facilities to self cater was a bonus as eating out in Australia was expensive, though we did find some reasonably priced venues eventually. The Baltinese restuarant was a plus and a relaxing place to dine occassionly.

                No other choice than Baltinese food which, though delicious did not fancy it every night. Would have appreciated more than four sun-loungers to relax on from time to time.

                Helpfulness of staff

                Walk to town was uncomfortable during daytime because of high humidity.

              • Group of friends
                6.2

                Decent location. Good security.

                The night staff required a level of silence during the late hours that would rival a catholic girls school. While the day staff was helpful and polite, the night staff was much less so.

                we had 3 room one was a apratment for 4 people. We loved the apartment we stayed in! The staff at the motel were very friendly and helpful.

                the motel roomsairconditioner had trouble keeping the rooms cool enough to sleep in.

                We found the staff were helpful, friendly and someone was always in attendance at the front desk to answer your questions or help arrange tours etc. The restaurant staff were exceptionally efficient and friendly.We extended our stay to 5 nights, at very favourable rate.

                Bay village tropical retreat & apartments is clean and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It is reasonably priced. No regrets choosing it for stay :)

              • Single
                8.2

                Nearly everything looks good for me but room spacing and the location is very suitable for me and I will still chose Bay Village as my first preference for my next holiday trip.

                Airport pick up and drop off would be very great. There is available but but a bit of flexibility.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                The room was spacious and clean. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. The free shuttle bus between the hotel and the airport is a bonus.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                The position was ideal for our needs.

                The studio apartment while quite spacious had bad lighting, especially in the bathroom and there was a musty smell throughout.

              • Couple
                7.0

                They provided many amenities in the room such as shaving cream, soap, shampoo and lotion. Great decor.

                The rooms were a bit older and slightly run-down. Our shower door did not close properly, and the staff were not very helpful. They only offered more towels to soap up the floor, but did not send someone to fix the door. Also the walls were very thin. We could hear everything our neighbors were saying. Also, the location is a bit far from Cairns CBD. It actually took us closer to 30 minutes to walk (instead of the advertised 15 minutes).

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Well laid out and decorated with Indonesian artifacts. Liked the landscaping as well. Great restaurant and good food too. Liked that the kitchenette was separated out from the sleeping area in our studio apartment.

                Bathroom was a bit dated. Safety chain on front door was broken. Did not like the additional charges for use of credit card to pay for the apartment and the additional charge to use the safety box at the front desk.

              • Group of friends
                6.2

                Excellent restraunt. Level of cleanliness was great.

                Ground room floor was uneven like there were tree roots under it pushing it up. Room wasn't what I imagined, older than I thought in need of a makeover.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                The staff at reception was very helpful and friendly. Wonderful, relaxing stay after three weeks in Outback.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                The Bayleaf restaurant attached to the Bay Village was an added bonus we did not expect. Wonderful innovative food and great service.
