I stayed with my partner in a one bedroom apartment for 5 days and it was just perfect considering location and amenities. There is parking at no cost, and a balcony to view the main street area below and the mountains in the distance.

I stayed at Mantra Esplanade in a studio room with my partner for 2 nights as our first stop in Far North QLD. The location was excellent, really close to everything in the city and had nice views towards the lagoon. I wasn't too happy with the position of the room - it was through a door with 2 room...

In the past we have stayed at the Shangri La (which we loved) but decided on the Mantra as we wanted a kitchen and we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were really quite large, with seperate lounge/kitchen and bedroom and a good sized balcony. They were well appointed with washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board, two flatscreen TV's, a... More

Central to everything, only a short walk to the Marina and Casino and restaurants. Right across from the Lagoon and we had great views of the ocean and lagoon. The pool area was nice and clean. The bed was comfy and the rooms were nice and clean but the bathrooms could have been a bit more modernized. The staff were... More

This hotel is so central to everything you need in Cairns. We had a suite overlooking the Esplanade Lagoon and we loved sitting with a drink on the balcony and watching all the boats coming back from the Reef after 4.30pm. Woolworths is just out the back door and across the road, so very handy for food shopping. The hotel... More

Hotel had a great location and friendly reception staff however we were told that the hotel was four star. The room was very nice but there was no "cleaning" service. Beds were not made, cups etc not cleaned and towels/toilet rolls/bins not changed. You are expected to go to reception to do this yourself. Sounds a bit petty but I... More

My 7 year old son and I stayed here in July 2015 for 6 nights and loved it. It is the perfect location being just across the road from the Cairns Esplanade lagoon pool, close to plenty of restaurants & shops, Woolworths supermarket is just behind the hotel, the Reef fleet terminal is only a 5 minute walk, Cairns Central...

I usually prefer to saty in resorts especially in hot places like Queensland so you can have easy accesses to the pools. But this apartment was quite nice we had a belcony with a good view and the pool was nice.

Stayed here for 3 nights in July. Booked a 1bed apart on the 4th floor, the room was clean,spacious, very nicely furnished, large comfortable bed, nice bathroom and kitchen and a balcony over looking the Esplanade. This room (413) does have an adjoining entrance to another room but wasn't a problem for us as I don't think it was occupied.... More
