Aquarius apartments are ideally located on the esplanade. Our room had a fantastic view and a nice big outdoor area. The rooms were large and beds comfortable. It was great to have our own well equipped kitchen for meals in.

Have just spent six nights at the Aquarius and it was absolutely fantastic. We stayed in a premium apartment on tenth floor that had fantastic views, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen and laundry. Everything was organised with as least hassle as possible, including pre arrival and check in details. Excellent location with huge balcony overlooking esplanade, walking... More

We travel to Cairns regularly and this is easily the best place we have ever stayed. We prefer the freedom of staying in apartments and this apartment did not disappoint. We stayed in a premium apartment, which was spacious and clean with amazing views of the esplanade and the marina. As we were travelling with a small child it was... More

Cairns Aquarius Holiday Apartments are in an excellent location. Close to the lagoon for swimming, the marina for any reef tours, shops, night markets, restaurants, public transport and a 10 min walk to the casino. The apartments are spacious, well laid out and with all the amenities you'd expect in a self contained apartment. Dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, free wireless,... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your Cairns Aquarius holiday experience with others. You tell it as it is. Cairns Aquarius is an iconic experience for families and guests.

Our first experience was an uncaring attitude from caretakers when we could not unlock the door! With their help and strength the lock was eventually forced open but with arthritic hands it was impossible for me and difficult for my husband. Each time we returned to the apartment we feared either breaking the lock completely or breaking the key in... More

UNFAIR, UNTRUE AND UNJUST! Dear Jac622, I would like to set the record straight here. The receptionist in the foyer advised me that you were having trouble accessing your apartment. I went there immediately, less than 2 minutes. To me the door did not seem too difficult to open, however conscious that you were having a problem because of your... More

Stayed for 6 nights last week. Originally I was very disappointed as I had booked for the 10th floor and we were given a room on the 3rd floor maybe it could have had something to do with that we arrived late from Sydney. However the room turned out to be very comfortable with good amenities and still had a... More

Stayed in a premium 2bdrm apartment. The apartment itself was fantastic - huge, newly refurbished, large TV, great couches, and the view from the balcony was spectacular. The location was right on the water, and very close to restaurants, and woolworths only a 5min walk away (although there was an IGA express around the corner). One thing to consider is... More

Excellent location. Stayed several nights in Apt 44 with a family of A2 and 3C. An extra folding bed was added to the main bedroom, for our younger child, it fitted comfortably, not cramped.
