Stayed at Vision Cairns Esplanade for a family occasion. We had a four bedroom apartment which was next to the pool, very spacious indeed. The staff are great and very attentive to the needs of holidaymakers. Wonderful views and very quiet, yet so close to everything.

Great rooms, comfortable beds, TVs in the bedrooms, air con and fans, wonderful shower, spotlessly clean, good location, great pools, gym, beautiful gardens, wonderful staff - including Binx the adorable puppy dog.

We recently stayed at Vision Appartments with 4 adults and 3 kids. Central location right on the waterfront, walking distance to the iconic Cairns lagoon and for our 6-8 year olds the huge Muddy's playground and kids water park was perfect. Lots of free entertainment on the waterfront each night was a nice touch. Walk to range of restaurants and...

Only a few minutes walk to to the heart of the Esplanade, this place was perfect. The 2 bedroom unit we stayed in was excellent, clean and in very good condition. We had one of the rear units which gave great views of the mountains. The amenities were good (we tried both pools) and the designated undercover parking meant that...
