    Exceptional 10.0
    Very nice hotel. Clean, good sized room. Gave good suggestions of places to go nearby (definitely check out hemingway brewing and Muddies). The pool was the highlight with the inflateable flamingos; it was also very large so you didn't feel crowded with others swimming. You can also mirror your phone to the TV in the room to watch Netflix, etc. Rooftop dining was crowded so we didn't eat there and we didn't try the café either. We did eat at the Asian themed restaurant which was tapas style. Food was good quality but service was a bit slow and they wouldn't let me put my dessert in a to-go container when I couldn't finish it all (but did bring it up to our room on a room service platter). I'd stay here again or at their other hotel in Cairns if coming back
