We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment overlooking the Strand in Townsville. We came to visit our daughter who now lives in South Townsville and this apartment served as a home away from home and a vacation paradise for us. We loved taking our morning walks on the Strand, getting a coffee at the many cafes, bringing take away fish and chips back to our balcony, and BBQ by the pool with our new extended family and friends. The apartment was well appointed, clean, and had plenty of room, We will be back, as we stayed in several places over our time in Townsville, and this one was the nicest and best fit for us.

We stay here whenever we visit Townsville. It's a little pricier than other hotels but the proximity to the beachfront, water playgrounds, cafes on the boardwalk, the local RSL pool is amazing. We have stayed in a deluxe 2 br and a standard 3 br penthouse. You can nominate a modern white stone modern sofa interior design or a standard dark wood and brown leather sofa interior. It depends on your taste and availability. The hotel pool and spa are large and fun, tennis courts and BBQ area wonderful, views breathtaking of magnetic island. Taxis can take you to the magnetic island ferry terminal in mins. There is a gelatissimo ice cream cafe just behind the complex that makes every night a treat! Free entry to RSL pool. Coles is 3 blocks away together with a beach restaurant strip. I love returning to mariners, home away from home!

Loved the location, central and close to everything. Great amenities. Clean and well appointed room. Beautiful views, great to wake up to. Stayed in 2 bedroom apartment that had everything we needed. Staff were very helpful on arrival. Easy check in and out.

Had a 5 night stay in a two bedroom two bath apartment on the second floor in the tower. OMG what a view. Overlooking the pool and coral sea. See the lights of the strand and Magnetic island at night. Lovely. The apartment was big and clean. Everything we needed was provided. Friendly management and helpful. Easy walking distance to the strand.

The first thing you will love about this place is the great views out to Magnetic Island and along the Strand. The rooms here are very well appointed and very clean. Beds were very comfortable too. There was a full size kitchen and an outdoor BBQ down by the pool.

Travelled with friends and we took 3 apartments in the complex. The best one was the three bedroom on the 9th floor with excellent views down along the Strand, the ocean to Magnetic Island and harbour. The lifts were very quick and the basement parking perfect with two spots for 3 bedder. The new Management had just taken over and they were very friendly and helpful and let us have a later checkout to suit our travel plans. We would highly recommend this apartment complex if you are staying in Townsville but ask for the main building with the lift. One of our apartments was in the lower section of the building where they had three stories to walk up and down every time.

We have stayed here twice in the last six months with our most recent stay being 9 nights over the Easter School Holidays. The first stay in October 2016 was in a three bedroom apartment and the most recent stay in a two bedroom apartment. We have two young children, 1 & 4, and both units had everything we could have asked for. The location is great, being right on the Strand, for walks/play along the esplanade and great food close by. We rebooked upon checkout for another week in a three bedroom apartment in September. Highly recommend!

Stayed 5 nights, two adults and an 11 year old. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment (booked 2 bedroom) on 8th floor with spectacular views of the marina, sea, beach and Magnetic Island. The apartment was spacious, large, clean and bright in a lovely secure building with free car parking available. Good size swimming pool and spa situated off reception. Coles, chemist, ferry terminal, all walking distance, the local 50m swimming pool is free to Mariners patrons and a 5 mins walk. Free wifi and newspaper delivered daily. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this marvellously located apartment complex.

Fantastic ... Our family of 5 stayed for 3 nights. Everything we needed for our stay was there. 3 good size rooms .. Main bedroom awesome! We cooked every night & everything we needed was there from potato peeler to oven dishes. Great size kitchen, fridge with ice dispenser (often used lol). Very comfortable, clean & tidy unit. Our views were awesome. We will definitely stay there again 👍

My husband and I came for a long weekend to visit family and were delighted with our stay. Courteous staff helped us to an early check in and our apartment was a fabulous size with just stunning views. The pool, spa, BBQ area and tennis courts are just icing on the cake. Our room had a freshly renovated kitchen with meant we could entertain the family easily. Bedrooms were large with excellent robe space and bathroom and ensuite both had everything we needed including a washer and dryer. We wWill be back I'm sure. It's obvious that the management are working on an overall facelift to make this property even more appealing.
