Just came back from spending 7 days in a two bedroom apartment with friends at the Mantra Esplanade. The rooms were a really good size, spacious lounge room and kitchen. There were a few downsides, the pool is not heated and never in the sun, so no one used the pool for the entire time I was there. On the... More

You can't go past the location. Walk to fabulous restaurants, the lagoon, Muddy's playground, the marina. The rooms are all clean and well presented. And the staff at reception are fabulous. Don't go expecting to use the pool and spa though. They are in a shaded area and not heated so it is like swimming in ice. Only disappointment was... More

Great place to stay right in the middle of where it is all happening. Walk out the door and it is all within a quick walk away. 5 minutes from the casino, night markets, lagoon, shopping galore and food, food and more food. Fantastic staff who are always willing to help at your beck and call. Clean, clean, clean -... More

The staff at the desk impeccably dress and VERY friendly. I will come back again. I miss you!!!!! The room was clean when we walked in. Walk everywhere, no need to hire a car. The lady at the desk called for our taxi and it arrived within minutes. We were sad leaving because we loved it so much. Thank you... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Mantra Esplanade, the staff are friendly and always happy to help, the rooms are very clean, and well maintained as is the rest of the complex. Perfect location close to absolutely everything. I will certainly be recommending my friends and family stay here, it is a great place to be.

Very good location but will be no more choice to me. The bedroom was not completely separated from kitchen and living area. Semi-opened so a noise of refrigerator or TV cannot blocked effectively.. Might be OK to other normal people but will be no more choice to me.

While this may not be a modern property in Cairns, it has an established charm, the staff are always welcoming, the rooms are spacious and the location is second to none. In the heart of everything. Security and parking convenience are important to me. The second floor carpark has two security gates, even in the worst storm you are dry... More
