We had an enjoyable 3 nights at Mantra Esplanade Cairns. The room was comfortable and had everything we required. Shower was a bit dated but was nice and was powerful. The location is brilliant - right beside the reef terminal for all trips to the reef or islands. It is also across the road from the lagoon and beside all... More

Have just returned following a five night stay in a 2 two bedroom apartment and found Mantra to be a great spot to stay, and being in the city centre found it so easy to walk to the numerous restuarants and the marina.

My Husband and I recently stayed 8 nights at the Mantra Esplande in Cairns, we had a self contained one bedroom apartment, it was clean, modern and refreshing, we had a city view apartment, and was lucky to see the lagoon, sea and the mountains on either side of our balcony. The location is fantastic, short walking distance from reef... More

This is a bright and sunny, tho small, well located apartment overlooking the Bay. I was astounded to discover having already paid over $200 per night, the rooms are NOT serviced during stays. If this was on the website it was certainly not apparent pre booking. The desk staff tell me this is Mantra policy, to me it is an... More

Kitchenware is all supplied so you can save money by buying groceries at the Woolworths one block away. Pool is lovely and the beautuful Esplanade... More
