We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Il Plazzo which is so central to the touristy part of town, as well as Woollies if you want to self-cater. The apartment was well appointed, spacious and quiet, overlooking the pool. Front desk staff were VERY helpful and it's a bonus to be able to book tours with Il Palazzo which can be... More

We stayed 4 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment at Il Palazzo in Cairns and found it delightful. The standard of the apartment and the whole complex was excellent, and the management and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location in Abbott St, right in the centre of Cairns, was brilliant, making it possible to walk to everything in... More

This was our second time to Il Palazzo and everything was as it should be. helpful staff, great location. It really is the best by far for value being so central. The heated pool is a bonus as the weather wasn't the warmest during our stay. Being 1 bedroom apartments makes it a quieter stay as well. The pool furniture... More

Spent 4 nights here just after Christmas (so a bit late with this review!). We chose Il Palazzo on account of it's central location and good price and were very happy with our stay. We had an apartment overlooking the street but weren't troubled by noise. The apartment was well furnished and decorated and had everything we needed. Underground parking... More

We spent one night at Il Palazzo during out three weeks in Queensland. The location was perfect for our needs and although in the middle of the action, it was very quiet sleeping.

Staying at Il Palazzo was a pleasure from start to finish. From Donovan's warm greeting, personal escort to the room, to touring advice and making actual bookings (no commission!), we loved every minute. Cairn's famous esplanade and public lagoon/pool are a very short walk away. Il Palazzo's heated pool with lovely deck area was a delightful way to relax and... More
