Great hotel and location. Stayed for 3 nights in a one bedroom apartment which was clean, spacious and well appointed. Close to lagoon, marina and shops. Nice meal in their Wink restaurant. Helpful staff would stay there again.

Everything is near. Comfortable though a little dated. Had a lovely 4 day stay. Just wish they can make Esplanade facing rooms a little sound proof. Sometimes the street sounds are pleasant - sometimes you need quiet. No daily service.

Stayed here for 5 nights 14th to 19th August. 2014. Perfectly positioned close to everything, including the Marina with it's shops, restaurants and Bars. Room was clean with a nice balcony over looking the esplanade, but dated. The lift service was very good, never waited more that a few seconds. The hotel is opposite the lagoon, so great for couples... More

Lovely apartment, 2 balconies so you could get sun or shade all day. Washing machine and dryer supplied - which was an unexpected surprise. Fantastic location, didn't need a car to go out, it's all right on your doorstep. Great view of the lagoon which had unfortunately closed the week before for 3 weeks of winter maintenance.

My room had the noisiest air con unit & after a sleepless night I complained. They sent a maintenance guy to fix it, he left a note "wedged it to reduce noise" these are to... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in August. Central for everything, right across from the Cairns Lagoon. Stayed in a hotel room, which although a little dated was functional and clean. No daily service provided. Free parking. Ideal for a short stay in the City centre.

Currently staying on the 6th floor here at Mantra Esplanade and having a great time. All of the front desk and housekeeping staff say hello whenever we encounter them. Whilst the rooms aren't serviced daily, fresh towels, coffee, sugar, toilet paper are made available to us from the front desk. We are staying in a City View room which faces... More

First we are told there is no daily room turn down which we would have to pay an extra cost, already paying enough. The front desk people don't seem happy people when they are check you in and weren't so helpful. We had an ant problem in our room and all they offered was any spray. We couldn't sleep because...
