“Great location, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We stayed at these apartments over the Cairns Ironman race weekend and was perfect. Friendly and helpful owners, great location. The rooms were very clean with enough space in the apartment for all of us. Good value for money

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

We stayed for seven days on the the fourth floor in a two bedroom two bathroom apartment overlooking The Esplanade with full ocean views from the lounge room and both bedrooms. The well appointed kitchen was used every day, as was the laundry, everything was clean and working. Sandy and Tony made you feel more like friends than customers... Sandy went out her way to organize a special treat for my elderly mother that was the highlight of her holiday and offered great advice on tours and destinations, nothing was a problem.
We will be coming back. Thank You Sandy and Tony. Peter, Sue and Mary

We had a lovely three weeks in the beautiful city of Cairns,our first visit for 25 years.Sandy was a great host ,spot on with all the information we sought and very quick to solve any little problem that arose.
We selected unit 5 on level 1(we had a choice of 2).Good views and the unit had everything we needed except for insect screens.. This meant the doors had to be closed at all times which was a bit of a nuisance.
Don't know what the other levels were like but we had consistent aircraft noise from Cairns airport about 4 k's north.Don't suppose you can shift the airport though.

Would we return here ? ..Most certainly-- great walk to the city and back and the pool and barbeque facilities were second to none.

Room Tip: Ask which units are exposed to aircraft noise.

Hi Bob and Denise,
Thank you for your review and comments. Yes I do agree, we certainly can not move the airport but you will find anywhere along the Esplanade strip - you will always have the 'aircraft noise', as The Esplanade is on the 'flight path'. The walk into the city centre is great and as you walked it every day and enjoyed it - good for the fitness level.

See you next time you are up on holidays.

Regards,
Sandy

What can I say, this place was absolutely a gem to find, Sandy was so warm and friendly upon arrival, we got upgraded to apartment 37 top floor with amazing views, everything was excellent. It's a short stroll along the Esplanade to the restaurants and shopping.
We had 2 couples stay which we both had our own bathrooms just perfect.
If anyone is contemplating on staying this place is a must .

Hi Ruth and Peter,
Thank you for your comments and so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Of course we think the Coral Towers is great and once the painting of the building is complete, in a few weeks, the complex is going to look even better.
See you next time you are up this way on holidays.

Sandy

We stayed 4 nights in a spacious, clean and beautifully decorated 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom unit. It was perfect for 4 adults. The kitchen had everything we needed, and although we didn't use it, it was good to know for future reference that there was a washer and dryer available.

The view from each of the bedrooms and the living room was beautiful as it overlooked the Esplanade, the promenade and the ocean. Having air conditioner units in each room was definitely a plus.

We can't say enough about Sandy. We arrived days before the expected arrival of Cyclone Ita, and Sandy provided excellent and experienced guidance for our tours given the uncertainty of the weather. She went "above and beyond" helping us, arranging tours for us, and simply checking up on us to make sure we were well taken care of during our stay. She made us feel like we were friends and not just customers. Thank you, Sandy!

Hi Elaine (and gang)
Thanks for your great review - and so very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and your time in Cairns. Yes, the impending Cyclone Ita, was a bit scary but we all survived it - thanks goodness, no damage done.
See you next time you are on Holidays - and as you saw while you were here, so much more to see and do around the area - next time you will need to stay for longer:)

Sandy

We stayed there for a week during our trip to Cairns, and I can just say that it was perfect. The two bedroom apartment was very clean and spacious. It was completely self-contained and had 3 air conditioners, laundry, dishwasher, two bathrooms, foxtel with sports channels, great views from both of the balconies and a swimming pool with a BBQ. All this was just with the standard room.

This is definetly the place to stay in Cairns, great value for money too!

Special thanks to Sandy, who was very helpful when planning our tours and did everything she could and more to make our stay unforgettable.

Coral Towers has the most amazing location on the Esplande with a beautiful view. The apartments are clean, spacious and ideal for a family of four, with all the basic amenities like dish washer, washing machine, dryer,etc. Sandy was very helpful in planning our trips in Cairns.
Our only regret was that we stayed only three days...

Hello Priyasri,
Thank you for your wonderful review and so happy that you enjoyed your time with us, as well as your holiday in Cairns. And yes, I do agree, 3 days in definitely not enough time, as there is so much to see and do while you are here. But I suppose, it just gives you a taste for more, so - you will just have to come back and we will see you next time you are in Cairns :)

Regards,
Sandy
