We stayed a couple of nights in an apartment and enjoyed this hotel as a base from which Cairn's can be fully appreciated and enjoyed. Few minutes from the Broadwalk and boat and helicopter trips and lovely open park spaces just across the road. The pool is smaller than the photos indicate but adequate and good. Staff are most helpful... More

Massive kitchen and lounge area.... More

Dear Foodlover8571, Thanks for your review and for pointing out the features of our 2 Bedroom Apartments. It is certainly an asset having a bathroom for each bedroom. I hope you enjoyed the views of the lagoon from your balcony. Kind Regards Colin McIntosh General Manager More

Situated in the centre of Cairns within 5 minute walk of the ferry port and all the restaurants plus there is a Woolworths supermarket across the road which was great. The room was very clean and spotless. The staff were super friendly and helpful and booked all my tours and matched them thoughtfully to suit my needs. The day tripper... More

Dear Gemoomin, Thank you for your concise and positive review of your stay at Mantra Esplanade. You have noted, as many of our guests have done previously, the convenient proximity of Mantra Esplanade to Woolworths supermarket.

When we first arrived in our room, we were not satisfied with the condition of the room so we asked for further cleaning of the room as the toilet was not clean and the shower curtain was dirty too. However, the receptionist upgraded our room without a single question when we gave them a call about the condition of the... More

This hotel is closely located close to the main reef terminal (2 min walk) for accessing local tourist attractions and is on the main road for great restaurants and tourist shops. If you are out and about all day, why pay extra for the more expensive hotels when you can get what you need at a low cost here. You... More
