Three generations of our family stayed in upgraded apartment 29 at Aquarius from 26-30th November 2012. Everything was as advertised and consistent with other 5 star reviews. The apartment was very clean. All the appliances worked. The unit was well equipped with dishes, cooking gear, glasses, sliverware, etc. The unit had a washer and dryer--a much appreciated unadvertised addition. The... More

Dear john d, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I can't tell you how much this sort of positive feedback is appreciated. You tell it as it is, Apartment 29 was renovated earlier this year. I would know because I did all the renovations myself. Everything is indeed 5 star, fittings, furnishings and finish right down to heavy... More

Stayed with another couple long time friends in apartment 77 on level 12 in November for 5 nights. For a standard apartment we were mostly impressed. There are unbelievable views out over the water and airport from this apartment which has a big balcony with plenty of room and a large table. The girls cooked and we all thought this... More

We actually came to Cairns with the intention of spending a few days in Port Douglas. The town was so busy there was no good hotel accommodation available so we booked into Cairns Aquarius holiday apartments. Given the lateness of our arrival the manager was very accommodating. As soon as we walked into an apartment it felt like winning lotto.... More
