Stayed here last week for the last leg of our honeymoon! Loved the location of the hotel. Central to everything. Walking distance to fantastic restaurants, shopping centre and supermarket. Room was overall great, don't like the idea of shower curtains in the bathroom but other than that, it's the only complaint I had. We had an ocean facing apartment which... More

I have stayed at this hotel a few times and as usual it was good value for money and very reasonable accommodation in a brilliant location. Mantra on the Esplanade is so central to everything in Cairns from shopping to the marina to restaurants. The location is just the best for the price. Rooms are clean but the bed pretty... More

Dear seaview088, Thank you for once again choosing to stay at Mantra Esplanade. I am glad you found your stay to be good value for money. Whilst the shower curtains do get washed, I also agree that we would be better off not having them. We have just recently had a shower screen installed in one apartment, and we hope... More

I stayed here recently for 3 nights for work. I think overall the hotel was a good choice, mainly due to location. The hotel is pretty central to everything. One thing I weren't happy with was the room was not serviced. For me it weren't a major deal as I was there for work and it was a pretty rushed... More

We stayed at the Mantra Esplanade on a recent trip to Cairns & it was perfect. After a bad experience at another hotel we decided to check out Mantra & were instantly impressed. The staff were friendly & very helpful. Our room on level 3 was amazing with a separate lounge, full kitchen, king size bed & good size balcony... More

Just spent six nights in a one bedroom apartment, city facing. Very happy with the space and services. The location is ideal, close to the esplanade, lagoon pool, restaurants, marina and supermarket. Tours and shuttles pick up and drop off at the door. Very handy shortcut through to to Woolworths via the Courthouse Restaurant at the back. The room was... More

Dear Tracy P, Thank you for your lovely comments regarding your stay at Mantra Esplanade. it must have been nice escaping the winter weather back in New Zealand.

You can't beat the location of this hotel. It is close to the marina (2 blocks) where you hop on for the Great Barrier Reef tours. Lagoon is a minute walk literally. Could walk to their shopping Mall and the casino. The hotel and rooms are generally clean. It is a little bit outdated such as no marble tiles, no... More

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.

Dear Shyam M, Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Our various apartment owners have been terrific in the last year in allowing us to replace the carpet, tiles, and kitchen benchtops in just about all of our rooms. We soon hope to work on a project with them to replace the furnishings in the room... More
