      The staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The location was quiet, but still only a 20 minute walk from the centre.

    • Older travelers

      Thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Reef Palms, room very clean & comfortable, kitchenette ideal for our purpose. Pleasant having breakfast on the balcony, utilised small swimming pool & laundry facilities. Carla & Tracey were so helpful on booking trips & with local information. We also really appreciated their time on contacting people over the " Volcanic Dust " problem, a plus with Reef Palms being family run.

      Slightly further out of Cairns than we thought but lovely walk along Esplanade & convenient bus service for evenings.

    • Older travelers

      It was quiet and the balcony was a little retreat. Very clean and comfortable.

      I would ask for a street level next time to avoid the steps - age consideration

      I appreciated the friendliness of the staff and their professionalism. The rooms were very clean and it was nice having a kitchen. The bbq and pool were very nice to use and I did use them. I would and do recommend the Reef Palms to everyone who wanted a home away from home.

      The Breakfast (In the delux room package) was amazing. The staff was very friendly and let us leave the bags at the hotel before check in time. Really Really good value for money

      Comfortable unit, within walking distance of Cairns City. Beautiful walk along the esplanade. Good value for money accommodation, and would be more than happy to return.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      The Reef Palms is set in a quiet street, is surrounded by lovely palm trees and is close to the Esplanade. Its staff are very friendly and helpful, which adds to its homely feel. We enjoyed our stay there immensely as we were blessed with a quiet period.

      We had a room with an interconnecting door to the next room. Fortunately for us the next-door room remained vacant for all but one night of our stay. If you are intending to stay for several days, I would try to avoid a room with an interconnecting door as every word beyond that door is audible.
