Great location and very comfortable.
Room was very clean and all remotes and cups etc in plastic covers. Nice pool and spa bath. Reception staff very pleasant and helpful. Great location across from lagoon. Easy walking to cafes, bars and shopping.

Great location and facilities
Great location within easy walk to the lagoon, casino, restaurants and shopping. The pool and spa were nice but toilets were locked and was the location of the AED ( not sure of ease of getting to reception through locked gates and back and then a locked door in a timely manner in an emergency) We had a noisy party next to us which was quickly shut down after our complaint. There was a lot of road works outside but the room was well insulated from the noise.

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent location in walking distance of shops
Great location in the heart of the city. Clean and spacious apartment with all the basic amenities. Lovely outdoor pool, but COVID restrictions meant only one room at a time could use the gym.

Room needed to refurbish The Spa didn't work for the Entire Week that wee where there the Gym was close
Claude, au7 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
We booked a motel room for 3 nights and then a 1 bedroom sea view for the last 4 nights, we were bitterly disappointed with the hotel room, very small and in serious need of an update, the view was roadworks and the room was not clean, food spilt on the lounge and under the coffee table. We rang reception for another room and a costing of upgrading to another room, we were told that they would get back to us, after a 20 min wait we had heard nothing so went to reception with our bags, reception then stated that there was nothing available, after a bit of too-ing and fro-ing we were then offered a 2 bedroom unit with a minimal cost, we were happy with that and the unit had everything that you could need. We would not have stayed there if we had known that the street is blocked off with road works but in saying that the Mantra Esplanade is in easy walking distance to everything

Was happy with the room
Colin, au3 night family trip
Good 6.0
It was central CBD Cairns but at the time surrounded by roadworks with detours everwhere and noisy to sit outside. I was disappointed in 2020 having to pay for wifi after 2hr complimentary. There is no bar or restaurant but a restaurant/bar Vaivaldi's adjacent openened at 4pm. The room was comfortable and the view across the park with the ocean in the distance. Also there was a non negotiable $20/hr late checkout.

A fantastic stay in the heart of Cairns. Great location with amenities close by. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
Kerrie, au3 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
It would appear that management dont give the cleaners enough time to do a complete clean. We located a number of places in our room that needed further cleaning. All in all, very happy with our stay.
Glen, au7 night trip
Fair 4.0
No prior advice of building and roadworks given prior to booking causing noise and limited access issues
