My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Cairns Aquarius in October for a vacation. We decided to go ahead and book the 5 star premium rooms because unfortunately, we've traveled the world and our standards have gotten a lot higher as we get older! The check-in is easy, you retrieve your keys from a lock box and you're set. It is an apartment building, I'd say a 50/50 mix of rentals and actual residents. We were on the 7th floor, it was quiet. Plain white kitchen with working appliances-we only used the fridge. 2 bathrooms although one is a split setup with the shower and sink in one room and the toilet down the hall in another. They were clean, nothing spectactular. The sitting area had 2 couchs, TV, table and chairs. The deck looked out the harbour was great for breakfast and evening drinks. However based on the bedrooms, I would not say the apartment had been recently renovated! The carpet was dirty and old. The bedspreads on the bed were disgusting....I am guessing they hadn't been washed in years! The towels were thin but since there were only 2 of us there were plenty of them! The sheets were thin and torn. My husband said he was a little creeped out by bed and had trouble sleeping there.
We did utilize the laundry and it was great!
The place is right on the Esplande which is convenient to everything you could possibly want to do. If I had to do it over I wouldn't stay here unless I had a family (although there are no bathtubs so if you have a family and need a tub, this is not the place) and needed a lot of space and the kitchen facility.
