Its at one of the best locations if you wanted to snorkel or dive at the Great Barrier Reef as it is only 5 mins away from the Reef Terminal. Its also 5 mins away from the Cairns Esplanade where the restaurants are interesting.

Good hotel, in a very good location, 5 minutes walk from the casino and bars and restaurants. Rooms are a good standard size and breakfast is well worth doing before catching a fast cat to Fitzroy. Would stay again.

The Pacific is ideally placed for all that Cairns has to offer. Pleasant staff, and our room was fine with a balcony overlooking the road. Plenty of shops and eating places around the area and the small pool is a bonus. Woolworths supermarket very convenient for shopping. Would stay here again

Have visited before - love the central location of the resort - the promenade and lots of restaurants and shops are a short walk away. Staff is always helpful. Rooms perfect for our needs - great value for the price. Unfortunately, ours was a short stay this time - but whenever we find ourselves in Cairns, this is the hotel...

I always stay at the Pacific Hotel when I am in Cairns. The position is perfect with a wonderful view of the ocean and central to everything Cairns has to offer. I was able to watch the ferries going out to the reef. Great food and service.
