Excellent location. In walking distance of just about everything. Would stay again and recommend to others. On the down side - aircon in the living room had seen better days and needed replacing and wash-basin taps needed effort to turn-off water properly.

Rooms were nice, anything above 4th floor recommended for a view, movies were overpriced local DVD shop a quarter of the price. pool was clean and refreshing. Not a lot to do indoors but good for clean simplicity.

A nice hotel near to most of what you need. Located on the Esplanade right near the town pool. Close to plenty of restaurants and cafes, and easy stroll to supermarket for supplies. Would stay again if overnighting in Cairns.

My wife and I were caught badly with the Mantra Esplanade Mega Sale. The Sale advertised a two night special @ $118.00 per night. $236.00 all up, for a two day stay with a city view room. We booked on line and paid. The booking was accepted but came back as $375.00, for a two night stay ocean view. Spoke...

Whilst I enjoyed my stay here because of the excellent, friendly staff with a very good veranda restaurant and cafe. The easy access to the heart of Cairns on the esplanade is a definite asset. However because they define themselves as a time share there is no room service or daily room cleaning. The water pressure is quite poor and...

All rooms feature air conditioning, a balcony, cable TV, hair dryer, internet access (fee), iron and ironing board, and tea and coffee making facilities. There is also a 24 hour reception desk, tour desk, shopping complex, swimming pool, spa (not heated), exercise room and barbecue area.
