I stayed at the Coral Towers with my mom & sister when we decided that we wanted to go to Cairns to see the Great Barrier Reef.

spacious penthouse apartment. it was really nice to have my own bedroom with its own bathroom. I loved hearing the soft/subtle sounds of the sea and the sounds of the birds, and it was nice lying in bed and looking at the view of the Coral Sea.

it was a good location as far as being on the Esplanade, but it is on the other end of the Esplanade from the Marina

please be aware that there is a book of rules that some may find a bit unnerving. also the front desk has very limited hours. you are asked to take your own garbage down to the garage before you leave. in the morning the garage gates are closed & locked, and you need a key to get back into the building. we were just leaving for the airport and had already dropped off the key when we went down to the garage to take out the garbage, and got locked in the garage! I watched as my taxi came and then went... my mom and I had to scream at the top of our lungs to get someone to come down and let us out.

Room Tip: book a room with a Coral Sea view

Hello Jennifier,
Thank you for your review. Yes our Penthouse is great and has fantastic views of Trinity Inlet (as all of our apts do) and also the Hinterland. Our location is very good - no nightclub noise at 3.00am nor roudy people.
Every complex has 'rules' and they are there always for the guests safety and general consideration of others as well. The 'Gates' to our secure car park area, which is where the rubbish room is, are always locked, hence the 'secure parking' and guests are always told to have their key with them, at all time, as the locking of all common doors are expained to everyone when they arrive. Again 'security' safe. It was unfortunate that you 'locked yourselves' out but if you had 'entered the car park code' the security gates would have opened for you. The code is noted on all key tags.
Apart from the above, and even though you stayed with us many, many months ago, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Regards
Sandy

Spectacular views! Great apartments! Beautiful, spacious and clean rooms!
Peaceful place away from downtown noise. We absolutely enjoyed our daily walks along a charming Esplanade.
We stayed in 2 Bedroom/2Bathroom apartments for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. Special thank you from our family for making our stay unforgettable.

we were there in Dec as a family and our friends took another apartment. overall, very good experience worth recommending. apartment was spacious (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and nice living room with kitchen) with a nice view on the ocean. hotel was clean though equipment was a bit basic. the only minus is that it is quite a walk from the center of Cairns so we often ended up taking taxis...Net, great choice for Cairns but check if there are any places available in other close-by cities as Port Douglas as they simply are much nicer locations.

Room Tip: room 25 is great.

Hello,
Thank you for your comments. Yes, Apt 25 is a very nice apt and has all of the facilities that are needed when you are on holidays - like all of our apts do. The walk into the city centre is approx 30mins and by car or taxi , the drive is about 5-7mins - cost is approx $8 - $10 depending on the time of day.
Port Douglas is a 1 hour drive from Cairns, it is also a very good location. I pesrsonally think that there are a lot more activities to be done out of Cairns, but the coastal drive up to Pt. Douglas is fantastic.
Regards
Sandy

Had a great time at the Coral towers. This was the last stop on our Australian holiday and we were glad it was here. Besides being in Cairns with all it has to offer for us tourists the hotel felt like an oasis away from everything at the end of the day. The views were great and the overall ambiance of the place was what we needed before a long flight home.

Located in the quiet end of the Esplanade - away from noise and night life.
We enjoyed the amazing recently refurbished apartment with magnificient water views.
Both rooms and the lounge had air-conditioners (altogether three of them) - nice layout and modern electric appliances/kitchen
Always ask for a refurbished/renovated apartment as I understand there are old ones too.
Sandy was very helpful in providing a better guidance on the tours, local info and eating places etc.

We will definitely return

We booked into Coral Towers for the solar eclipse and were very happy. The apartment met all our needs and is close enough to the city centre to be comfortably reached walking and far enough away to avoid the noise and crowds. The view is superb.

Sandy was also extremely friendly and helpful.

We cannot recommend highly enough.

We stayed here for 3 nights, booking the top-floor Penthouse.

The Penthouse has been renovated and lacks for nothing. The views are amazing, and it has a large entertaining area where we held a BBQ for my family. It was perfect for this. It is close to the airport, and departing aircraft do fly past but as Cairns airport is not a busy airport is it not a problem. (Besides, we are aviation buffs and loved it anyway).

The apartment itself is well appointed with a full kitchen, a separate laundry-room, and 2 bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room. The apartment is fully air-conditioned, with separate controls for each bedroom and the sitting room. The furniture is nice looking and the beds supremely comfortable. Niggles were that there were a number of blown bulbs in the apartment (Hello? Maintenance??) and they apartment which shares the same floor must be privately owned by someone who unfortunately uses the common area outside the apartment as a storage area. It is messy and an bit of an eye sore, to be honest. But then again, that is hardly Coral Tower's fault.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

Recommended for a good-value stay in Cairns.

Room Tip: Stretch to the Penthouse for those amazing views.
