    Valter at the front desk was very helpful and responsive. The rooms need a renovation. No sound protection at all. The construction outside starts at 7.30, so if you hope to sleep till 10am, this is not an option for you.

    The location is one of the best in Cairns. We had an ocean view room which I highly recommend the view over the Esplanade was fantastic. The room was a good size and well stocked with necessities to start the vacation.
