would highly recommend the Mantra Esplanade. Centrally located to everything. The rooms were very clean and quiet. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was fully self contained with cooking utensils, washing machine, hair dryer etc.

The Reception staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the lady at checkin. The rooms were reasonably clean, but the rooms could do with a freshen up. The hotel is in a great location and is handy to everything.

Had a four night stay. Great location. Would recommend spending the extra dollars to book a sea view room. Staff were super friendly and knowledgeable. Only issue - pool is in constant shade so water was rather chilly. Easy solution though was to walk across the road to the lagoon and enjoy the atmosphere of the area.

It has taken me a while to get around to writing this review, but the fact that I can say a month has passed since our stay and still enjoyed it that much that I want to write a review probably says enough about how much we enjoyed it. The location was perfect for us, next to the night markets,...

There really is no better location than this, on the esplanade, across from the ocean and the swimming lagoon, right amongst the shops and Woollies. It's a two minute walk to the Casino and pier. Location, convenience, a reputable hotel brand and great staff make this hotel a must stay in Cairns. What stops this place from getting five stars...

Close to the waterfront, lagoon and places to eat. Water view of the esplanade, definitely worth the extra money. Friendly staff and good amenities. Only down side was the pool was constantly in the shade which was a little cool in May. But a short walk across the road to the lagoon, was better than the pool.

The rooms were not fancy but clean and spacious. Having a bath was also great. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing I didn't like was that my room shared an entry with another room. Therefore 1 door lead to a small internal room that then had two separate doors. Both night the light was left on in...

Great hotel, good friendly and helpful service, will be back to stay again. I enjoyed the free parking and great location. If staying in Cairns for holiday or work check out Mantra Esplande, great location, great rooms and all at a good price for any budget

This hotel has a fantastic location right in the heart of Cairns. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful at all time. My room was unserviced as part of the price deal, so I can't comment on that aspect. There is free parking (bonus!) and most things in the city are only a step or two away. I'm very glad...
