Great location, pool and spa nice. Friendly service. We got locked in the stairwell and a reception staff member came and helped us Ocean view room small and bathroom needed a bit of love. Overall would stay here again for the location if the price was right.

Poor value for money

Steer clear. We stayed here for 5 nights in an Esplanade View room. On arrival we were advised that the room would not be serviced. For a supposedly 4.5 star hotel at $288 per night, I found this odd but accepted it. We were left 2 towels and 1 toilet roll, plus about 5 sheets of toilet paper for our 6 days. The following day we asked for more towels and also toilet paper. The cleaner brought us one extra roll. What did we pay for? A very tired hotel room with no provisions for our stay. Absolutely shameful. A good location but so is the backpackers down the road and much better value for money. Will never stay at a Mantra again. Wish I could upload the photos of the condition of the room and the mould.

Great Location but a sad room.

Stayed in July 2022. Location is great but a disappointing stay. The Cairns Esplanade and The Pier are on the doorstep for bars and restaurants. The reception staff were pleasant but nothing was required of them. The reception area is pleasant but the voyers and hallways are bare and lacking love. The basic studio room was expensive, $400 per night, but very small, tired and outdated. It was not an attractive or pleasant room to relax in. Balcony had partial sea view and the lovely music from the esplanade could be heard. The pool area is attractive but gets little sun. The spa, advertised as a hot tub, was not hot. I was told it was heated to 27c but was cold on a winter afternoon and not suitable for s warm spa at the end of the day. Disappointing as this was a primary reason for choosing this hotel. The undercover car park has a height restriction so not all 4wd vehicles will make clearance. Thankfully, we just made it as I didn’t want my car on the street. I have stayed in many Mantra hotels but this was not up to standard. Next time in Cairns, I will be looking for better value and a more attractive hotel.

Fantastic Staff, helped wherever they could :)

I was staying for 2.5 weeks for work, and after a hard day at work and coming back the hotel, the hotel staff couldnt help more, which made the stay more enjoyable.

Excellent location, friendly staff, loved the balcony and will definitely return.

Our first visit to Cairns and found it very pleasing, the Mantra was perfect for us as we had everything we required within walking distance, plenty of options for food, and loved sitting on the balcony of an evening enjoying the beautiful view whichever way you looked, Can't wait to return.

Dear Lyn, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Mantra Esplanade Cairns. We are very glad that you enjoyed your first trip to Cairns! Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Roxy
