We have just had 7 nights at Cairns Aquarius and WOW, what a fantastic place to stay. The location is amazing, so close to everything, great restaurants as close as 100m away. The boardwalk is just across the road with all the facilities you could ever wish for. The apartments are so spacious and all have amazing views of the... More

We stayed in a Premium apartment at Cairns Aquarius for four nights in July. The apartment was spacious and clean. The view is perfect overlooking the ocean and we ate all our meals on the large verandah. The Cairns Esplanade was between us and the sea and we enjoyed watching all the activity going on at the outdoor gym and... More

I stayed at the Aquarius in part of a group of four, and my main problem with the place was that the location was great and the apartment was not so great. Upon entering we had discovered that there was only two bed when we had clearly asked for three and that did cause problems but when given another bed... More

My family of 3 stayed in apartment #77 for 6 nights in June. I'm a bit mixed on this one. On the plus side, the location and view cannot be beat anywhere on the Esplanade. The apartment was a much larger then expected 2 bedroom/2 bath with plenty of space. The balcony is huge with a sweeping view of the... More

You couldn't ask for a better location! The 2 bedroom apartment we had was beautiful, modern and spacious. The view was spectacular! We were located in a perfect location right off of all the restaurants, marina and Esplanade. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted to stay in Cairns!!

It's been 2 years since we stayed in the Aquarius (we prefer to stay here when holidaying in Cairns) and once again we requested and got apartment 39 on the sixth floor which is about half way up the building and in the middle which provides uninterrupted views up and down the Esplanade and out to sea (of course) and...

We recently stayed as a couple with two young children and this was a lovely spacious apartment for us to set ourselves up for the week. Having two separate bathrooms was excellent, especially with the kids as we (Mum and Dad) could have our own private bathroom. Being right on the Esplanade, you are close to everything and have wonderful... More

We were two couples who wanted a two bedroom, two full bath condo, centrally located with an ocean view. The Cairns Aquarius was exactly what we were looking for. The location is walking distance to the train station, dive boats and all the restaurants. The apartment was neat and clean and the balcony had a great ocean view. I would... More
