We arrived late in the evening and checked with ease, when we walked into our apartment we were delighted, modern and spacious we knew we would enjoy our stay. This is a must the Aquarius is in the heart of Cairns and we found it a pleasure to walk along the esplanade and explore the sites and sounds.

My wife and I had a wonderful 3 day stay at the Aquarius, our apartment was very clean and beautifully furnished, with all the necessary extras and more to make ourselves at home. It was a pleasure to wake each morning and sit on our large balcony with the view of the Cairns esplanade over breakfast. A delightful and memorable...

We stayed in a 12th floor 2 bedroom apartment. Whilst the room was partly new and still awaiting renovation in other area the room was big, comfortable and the view just spectacular with big balconies. The shape of the block means all apartments will directly front the esplanade. Free car parking and free fast wifi and a good price too....

Thank you so much for your excellent review. I took it for granted that a person with the pseudonym Karl Marx, would appreciate excellent value. I note that you stayed on level 12, which would be apartment 77. This is one of our standard apartments, very comfortable and, as you point out excellent value. Kind regards, Don and Annette

Excellent location in walking distance to Cairns pool. We were upgraded to superior suite with water views. The apartment was spacious and clean with a huge balcony. We will definitely be coming back to the Aquarius, but next time for longer!

I researched what felt like forever for our first Cairns holiday accommodation. After a quick chat to Annette I was sold and booked our apartment. As our budget didn't extend to Premium we didn't have overly high expectations of the standard of the apartment but was promised spectacular views and a large balcony. Well - we couldn't have been happier....

We have stayed in Cairns many times, this being our first at Cairns Aquarius. We would not hesitate to stay there again and also would highly recommend it to anyone in the future. We were on the 4th floor, but would probably ask for a unit on a higher floor next time.

We had two young children and our son and daughter with us. Second room was small but we had a higher floor so was a good view over the inlet. Close to the beachfront for the children which was really good and not too far from other amenities in cairns. We travel a lot mainly in SEAsia so I guess...

We stayed here for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom Premium apartment. We wanted to be close to the esplanade, lagoon pool, restaurants and shopping. Cairns Aquarius is perfectly situated for all of these.

The only reason we didn't give the full 5 stars is because we have become more serious with our status as senior reviewers, and therefore very fussy with our assessments. The accommodation + service + value has to really JUMP out and impress to get the full 5 stars. This place has the obvious excellent amenities including the location, fully...
