Great Location

The location is great and the hotel is nice. They don't clean the rooms unless you pay extra or stay more than 8 nights, which was fine with me. They have a pool and spa but don't heat them, so they were no use in the winter.

Excellent location, nice hotel, but expected more

Upon check in I was completely dissatisfied with my room. The sofa was stained, there was an odor in the room, and overall cleanliness was sub-par. The desk staff informed me I could not change rooms that night but I should check back the next day. The next morning a different desk clerk accommodated me with a much nicer, more comfortable, clean room. The first staff member was simply passing on the responsibility. Overall, the rest of the staff was helpful and nice, especially with booking tours, taxis, etc. The location was excellent. The pool was not heated unfortunately and therefore no one was using it. Hotel did not offer wi-fi and the public wifi did not work well in the hotel lobby.

Great Package

With the price I got with this hotel packaged with the flight, it was well worth the extra money to stay at this great hotel over a hostel. Recommended stay! Perfect location in the middle of Cairns, right next to the lagoon, short walk to the shops. Great all around.

Mantra Esplanade

Elegant and modern decor, very well maintained, 2 bedroom unit is very large with plenty of space for entire family, across the street from the marina and in the middle of shopping and restaurants.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Had the most delicious dinner for a reasonable price at Tha Fish (located on the Pier). We actually went back the next night for dinner again also (which we never do when traveling).
